I just got mine this afternoon (August 22nd) at Aden Camera in Downtown Toronto (Yonge and Dundas) for $1150 (body only). They had a lot of 70Ds with the 18-55mm kit, a few 18-135mm kits, and some bodies. Waiting for the battery to fully charge to play with it :-)
I've been learning my way around photoshop.
I see how you can create a logo and store it as a brush, and easily "stamp" your logo on images.
I'm curious....that process is ok if you're only doing a few images at a time.
But what if you have 100+ images you need to get out with a logo or watermark on them? Do ya'll program a PS action for this or what?
I've not gotten to 'actions' yet....but have heard about them.
Thanks in advance,
+1Knowing whether you will stay with a crop sensor camera or not will absolutely affect your decisions on lens selection. The fine EF-S lenses mentioned above will not work on a FF camera, they are for APS-C only. If you are sure that you will continue to shoot with a crop body, it is not so critical. But the convenience of using your (expensive) lenses on either body should not be underestimated. If you feel that you will "upgrade" to FF any time soon, then I would suggest that the only EF-S lens you buy should be a wide zoom, like the Canon 10-22mm or the soon to be released Sigma. The EF24-105 is an awesome walk around lens on a crop, but for the fact that 36-168mm FF equivalent is not very wide.
Depends on what 'any time soon' means. The high end EF-S lenses hold their value well. I lost ~$50 on the 10-22mm and ~$100 on the 17-55mm, after 1 and close to 3 years of use, respectively. If 'soon' is next month, fine. If it's 'sometime in the future, I hope' then get the best lens(es) for the body you have now.
As the OP is about to order a 7D, I'd guess that any possible migration to FF is years away, if ever. EF-S, and more specifically, the 17-55 is the way to go. I used a 17-55/2.8 IS and 70-200/2.8 IS on crop for years, and while it does encourage lens swapping, I can't remember any times where I needed the 55-70 range.
Hi all! I'm far from being a pro, but I'm planning on buying a new lens which would be good for: concerts, and as a walkaround. I love going to concerts, but I used a 50mm f/1.8 (my only lens aside from my kit lens, which is really sad, I know) for the first time to the most recent one I've been to, and most of the pictures were slightly blurry. I think it was due to a combination between the 50mm being a prime lens, and my distance from the stage--I was closer than I thought I would be.
So, I wanted something that would give me versatility, one which would give me good/sharp results no matter my distance from the stage. In addition, something that I could also use as a walkaround lens would be great.
I researched, but I still can't choose which would be the best choice among these:
Any help/other suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you
