430 EX II is a great flash...  grab it, enjoy it...  once/if you want to go off-camera, you can pick up a 580 or 600...  :)

Ignore it...

Forget all the high tech guff for a minute...go out and buy a 100D/SL1 slap on a shorty forty, walk down the city street and shoot, shoot, shoot. Go on you know you want's called fellin gooooood! Don't be shy post them here.

Like the idea...  thought had crossed my mind too! :)

How'd you get this gig...  it sounds a great shoot!  So many opportunities...  I say try and use the reflections in your favour, players face reflected off the glass etc??? Might make a nice shot, double exposure ish?

Good luck, and please share the results!


It's a comparison not a scientific test... it would need to be repeated many more times...  I think the message you can take back is that the cameras can take a beating...  more than a lot of people realise! :) 

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 5D Mk3 Reliability
« on: May 24, 2013, 12:25:14 AM »
Had it 5 months, and it has been by my side everyday....  the weather here in India can be a it harsh, especially now the rains are starting, but so far it has held up.  It has been in extreme dry and heavy rain. -10C to +40C. All with zero problems! There was even one time i got charged by a sloth bear and without hesitation raised it at a weapon (i was fairly sure the camera would have survived even if i didn't)...  luckily for me the bear stumbled, reared and i had a chance to back away! But i think it would have survived being used a bear repellant too! :)

Solid camera...  I foresee a long and happy relationship! :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Why is my 5D3 so noisy???
« on: May 24, 2013, 12:18:18 AM »
I'm loving the low noise on my 5D mkIII, but when i don't nail the exposure or not using the right settings for a shot, i have seen some noise (still 10^6x better than my 450D)...  I then have re-shot with better success...  Try setting up a similar scenario and test your camera with different settings? Then if you are still unsatisfied, take it back to where you bought it?

For me anyway, i usual find it is me not using the tool properly, rather than the tool misbehaving! :)

Good luck

Lenses / Re: EF 14-24mm and Filters

if it is not a screw filter, there will be a work-a-round.

My most wanted lenses are either 300 2.8 II or the 400 2.8 I or II...

EOS-M / Re: Cases of EOS M + 22
« on: May 22, 2013, 02:57:49 AM »
you might get better responses if you change 'of' to 'for', since you're looking for a case FOR your camera,  not A case OF the camera.  I realize English is not the first language for many people on here.

A 'case of' a product is usually a unit measurement. You would have several units for sale within this larger box, the case.

Whereas you are looking a 'case for' a product, which usually means a protective shell or pouch.

I personally opened the message thinking it was someone talking about finding several of the units fresh in stock, like a surplus of them, indicating the camera would be on discount sale somewhere.

Tad harsh.

innovation...  i like it!

Is the second shifted image HDR?

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Olympus OMD EM5 or 6D
« on: May 22, 2013, 02:26:22 AM »
Not a definitive review or comparison...  but will directly compare the stats and DxO marks (for what they are worth)..

Personally, i would grab the 6D Kit if you can afford it...  24-105 + 70-200 is a very nice set-up...  Saying that i do like the EM5 too! :)

good luck choosing and enjoy either!
