EOS-M / Re: EOS M3 24 MP Sensor?

I do wish the ef-m mount will last.
Moreover, I expect more quality lenses for this mount.

I do believe bad marketing was the primary reason of the m failure. Very few people actually know what is the M. I still get several vows when they see my M with flash and the wide lens and its touchscreen ability.

Recent shoot with Caley. Lighthouse Field State Beach - Santa Cruz, Ca.

Canon 5D Mark III w/ 50mm f/1.2L USM
Elinchrom Quadra into 1 m Rotalux Octa 45 deg left

I love the beautiful girl, the pose, the lighting and the background.  Hate the gray swim top.  What's up with that?

Her choice... maybe you prefer black?

or just the bottoms... :)

EOS Bodies / Re: POLL: How many mp do you want anyway?

Me, I'm waiting for an 18 megapixel APS-C Mirrorless from Canon :) Meanwhile I'll continue to use my APS-C Sony mirrorless :)

You just described the EOS M.

The EOS M is a Kitty-Kamera. My Sony is a fully controllable camera that can deliver pro results. When and if Canon comes out with a Pro/Prosumer mirrorless camera, I'll be the first inline.

I don't know what you mean by Kitty Kamera. Have you even used the EOS M? With the exception of a viewfinder it has the same features and IQ as any Canon Rebel DSLR. It gives you full manual control and a hotshoe which is all I need in a camera to do pretty much anything from a fashion shoot to landscapes. Add ML and you have a tidy little package with full functionality.

I'm guessing he means that it's very low end consumer.

I wouldn't know if that's accurate though.  I've never even held one.  I'm looking forward to the EOS-M3.

I got my camera its own selfie stick

I upgraded from my 500D/T1i to a 5D MKii.  I haven't tried out the 70d or 7d mkii but I can only image the 5d still has the edge in overall image quality.  The autofocus on the 5d isn't great but it can definitely still be used for sports.  When I was out with an injury, I photographed my cross country team without much problem.  At least for the courses we were on, I could get incredibly close and use my 17-40mm stopped way down for some motion blur.

Some example XC shots

Check out a device called the "Plamp".  It is a clamp for holding plants still.

Where I am, shooting just after dawn helps as there tends to be less wind than later in the day.
Lenses / Re: Image comparison for fisheye lens options?
« Last post by MJB on Today at 01:33:32 AM »
I have the Canon EF8-15mm f/4L Fisheye, although I have not compared to anything else it is a great lens.  In saying that I seldom use it as it is for very specific purposes.  If you have the spare cash it is a fantastic lens to add to your collection.

Why so much good talk about the 7D?
I don't know if anyone else has had my experience, but I had a run of bad luck with mine. Thought I'd trade in an almost new 5D2 for one, because I thought it might be better sealed.
It may have been, but in the year I owned it I sent it back to Canon four times. Had it not been for my CPS Platinum membership, the repair costs would would have been more than the initial price.

To the OP, if you can afford it, get a 1DS Mark III. Or several. If not, get a 1D III.
Street & City / Re: Chicago Visit
« Last post by Lilwesta on Today at 12:45:30 AM »
I was in Chicago this week - weather was good at times, but nothing like you had!!!
Here's a couple I took . . .
1- City from the east at the river
2- Michigan Ave. near the Hancock Bldg. looking up with a fisheye
3- Out on The Ledge

Those are great shots and you had to be more determined. It's was mid 70's when we were there. I highly doubt that's the type of weather you had.

What fisheye did you use for these? I've been looking at the different options lately, but haven't had one really stand out so far.
