I think the next step will be to respond to "your camera takes great photos" with "thank you!  Tell me what you like about these images.  I'm always trying to improve my craft."

Great idea! I'm going to try this myself next time...

"You really got lucky".....

After scouting the location and showing up morning after morning waiting for the right lighting and clouds, I got lucky... All the preparation had nothing to do with it....

As Louis Pasteur was quoted to say, "Chance favors the prepared mind."

With that perspective, you were VERY lucky.  :P

Cool. Just waiting to see what Black Friday prices might bring before I pull the trigger on this one myself. Amazon had some great prices on the two lenses I want. Hopefully, holiday deals will make it that much sweeter...

EOS-M / Re: The Next EOS M in 2014 [CR2]

Perhaps the comment above is on the Mark, that this camera is aimed at the consumer market and not meant for the enthusiast market.

That's what I'm thinking. The point-and-shoot market is withering away, and with it, the revenue that drives development of the DSLR line. As camera phones continue to improve in quality and saturate the market, Canon might be looking to position consumer-level mirrorless cameras as the new point-and-shoot equivalent. The image quality easily beats camera phones (for now), and interchangeable lenses will make consumers feel a clear separation between phone and camera.

For enthusiasts and pros, this might seem disappointing, but if this is actually the strategy, we should all hope it's wildly successful -- for the sake of funding new technology in DSLRs (and maybe someday, pro-level mirrorless).

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Canon 70D $1,099 on Amazon.
« on: November 04, 2013, 08:04:08 PM »
Anyone else notice that the price for the 70D dropped $100 on Amazon?

I'll probably still wait to see what kind of deals will appear for Black Friday, but I thought I'd mention it in case anyone else is in the market for a 70D.

Cheers...

*** Update ***

Looks like B&H, Adorama and likely other retailers have followed suit. Sale ends 11/23/2013. What are the odds that Black Friday sales a week later will have a better price?

EOS-M / Re: Grip available for EOS M

Special tape.  Put one on my s95 a few years back - its still there after lots of use.  Will have to look into this for my M.

If they use VHB tape from 3M, it's pretty incredible stuff. I used some to attach an aluminum sidesaddle to the receiver of my shotgun (the bolts that came with it left it either too loose or pinching the receiver enough to reduce reliability of the semi-automatic cycling). After more than two years, exposed to extreme heat, extreme cold, lubricants and heavy use, it ain't comin' off. Doesn't even budge or flex. Love that stuff! Of course, I had to buy a roll (75', if I remember correctly), but I only needed about 6", so I'm always looking for a reason to use it. :)
Can you really take it off with dental floss?

Yes, that's part of the process of taking badges off your car - dental floss or fishing line.

Good to know! I don't plan on taking that sidesaddle off any time soon, but now I know how if I need to.

Thanks!

For some people, lenses are like clamps with my woodworking hobby: Some day, I'll have an entire wall of my shop covered in clamps of every shape and size. And when I finally do?





I'll start on the next wall.  :P

EOS Bodies / Re: An Announcement Coming in November? [CR1]
« on: October 31, 2013, 02:55:05 PM »
With the timing and involvement of retailers, my guess (if this is true) is that it's something that will be available for the holiday shopping season. That could be anything from a new G- or S-series Powershot to a lens or new EOS M. I doubt it would be an announcement for a next-year release (why involve retailers, otherwise?).

A new EOS M wouldn't be hard for Canon to do. They'll probably just slap the 70D sensor into the existing M body, throw in some new creative filters and maybe a new lens (or announce the EF-M 11-22MM will be available in the USA).

Done. A "new" model just in time for the holiday shopping season...

Confusing? What's confusing about DG OS HSM | A;)

Yes Sigma's lens names are truly hilarious.

Rearrange the letters and it spells "Sham Dogs".  :P

...or, "Smash God"

Nice!

My new moniker for a great lens from Sigma: "This thing is a smash god!"
