My first was a 70-200mm f/4L IS.
Then came a 35L, which was sold for a 35A

7D M2 would be nice but I hope they offer something like 1Dx with crop sensor. Same electronics / ergonomics as the 1Dx. Now that would be VERY NICE.
If I recall, the main selling point of the 7D when it was released was it's superior redesigned AF system and FPS over the XXD. Here was a solution to those in the prosumer segment that couldn't afford a 1D series to afford a better AF system and were complaining about the old 9 point AF system. It was definitely a more action/sports/wildlife kinda camera. Right now, I would say Canon's AF offerings are on-par - so really is a 7d mark II even needed?
There are two bug fixes I am interested in. One for a crash and the other where it says can't save the configuration. I will download it next week. Apparently you need to get a new license. So did somebody hack the old one?
Once you've moved away from the traditional neck-strap, it's very hard to go back. But the whole sling-strap and holster industry is still very young and evolving fast. PeakDesign has been one of the bigger Kickstarter successes. Is anyone using the Peak Design Capture system?
The Peak Design CapturePro looks to me to be a sophisticated, evolved, compact design. The DualPlate is an intriguing design compatible with both Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-Swiss. Any reviews I've read are gushing, but appear to have been written by acolytes or affiliates. Any real-world feedback?
The Leash strap system can convert in seconds from a sling strap to a conventional neck strap. The Leash looks a little thin, so I emailed Peak Design who replied almost immediately saying a wider, more comfortable strap suited to the weight of a pro body with 70-200 zoom will be shipping very soon.
I often work long days on my feet carrying a load of gear. The search for a perfect carrying system is a bit like the search for the holy grail. I have a Spider Pro system www.spiderholster.com with the dual holster belt which has been very good but is now worn out and needs replacing.
Recently I had a case of buyers-regret on a full set of CarrySpeed straps; the Extreme, the Pro and the Dual plus extra F1 foldable plates. Initially the system looked full of promise, and I figured I'd get used to the clumsy attachment system and bulky components. What I will say about CarrySpeed is that it is just great if you're only carrying one body/lens so long as that does not include a 70-200 f/2.8. The ability to instantly hitch the camera up tight solves the BR bouncy-bouncy issue. Two straps doesn't work together and the design implementation of the Dual is a mess.
So what to choose? The new kid from Peak Design? More Spiders? BR? And CarrySpeed appear to have been wiped off the face of the map, litigated out of existence by a cashed-up BR for having the audacity to make a sling strap.
So finally payed up and bought a few pelican cases. 1540 I think and the 1740. Sadly the 1740 got shipped to me cracked! I am blown away! I thought this was the unbreakable box. Super nervous now. The cracking happened when there was nothing in it and the cardboard shipping box had very little to no damage on it. Bought this so I can ship my stuff to Jamaica to do a job. Now wondering if I should switch! Any one had this happen to them ? Should I stay with pelican?
My attachment points for my camera strap is a pair of sewn on nylon loops. I either have a neck strap hooked into the loops or when hiking, a pair of short tethers to the shoulder straps of my pack.
For me, attaching something to the tripod mount is not going to work as it will interfere with tripod use or using it on my hiking pole/monopod.
Mater: Oh, for a second there I thought you was trying to fix my dents.
Holley Shiftwell: Yes, I was.
Mater: Well then, no thank you. I don't get them dents buffed, pulled, filled or painted by nobody. They way too valuble.
Holley Shiftwell: Your dents are valuble? Really?
Mater: I come by each one of 'em with my best friend Lightning McQueen. I don't fix these. I wanna remember these dents forever.
... First, my gut instinct tells me that the camera came off because the little tubular thingy that in theory locks the carabiner came unscrewed, and the coat compressed the spring on the carabiner....
I attended a rock climbing class and one of the first warnings the climbing instructor told us was not to trust locking carabiners... they will unlock eventually. He also showed us how to use two carabiners in the yin/yang position for added security.
I'll have a look, but I don't think my Dell has USB 3.0, I'll be surprised if it is.
Thanks I'll read that later.
What is the gamut for the 27" iMac?
Botts, how can I find out if my Dell has USB 3.0?
So would you say that wide colour gamut displays would be for people doing colour critical work? Many professional photographers use calibrated iMacs/thunderbolt displays with no problems and that does not have a wide colour gamut.
Thank you for the link to the enclosure.
Ruined, if I was to go Mac then I would keep the programs and the Lightroom catalog on the internal 256gb drive which will be fast, and then put a 960GB Crucial M500 drive into a USB 3.0 enclosure like the OWC Mercury Elite Pro mini, I wouldn’t have thought there would be much of a drop in speed in doing this. Anything is faster than my Dell!
I don’t know how accurate this is, but I downloaded a free program which read the speed of my current drive:
Write Speed = 100MB/s Read Speed = 110MB/s
So I would be getting a MASSIVE increase in speed on the iMac. What would you think the speed of the 960GB Crucial M500 would be if put into my Dell?
QuoteWell if I was to go down the route of iMac, which I am now thinking this is not the right time to do so, I would not want to attempt to change the hard drive!
That is part of the problem. The one you are mentioning in the Mac is not impressive to begin with, and it is a pain in the butt to change (plus voids your warranty).
