In light of all the doom-and-gloom regarding the POS known as the 5DIII, let's try to lighten the mood, shall we
? Since some people seem convinced that it's impossible to create art with only 11.7 stops of DR, and the 5DIII's pathetic hardware specs are limiting their creative execution, I propose posting your best images captured with less-than-stellar gear. It can really be anything, whether it's a point-and-shoot, xxD, Rebel, or just something that used to be a fine tool, but is too old to capture great images anymore (ie 1DII, 1DsII). As we all know, cameras that used to be cutting edge suddenly stop taking great images once a newer model comes out. Images from current crop bodies are very welcome, since everyone knows you can't take a decent image with a crop
Some of these have already been posted before, so I apologize in advance. These are far from the best shots in the world and some are far from great, but hey, they aren't out-of-focus snap shots of overweight felines taken with $3,000 bodies, either
I know this might be better placed in the Images and Videos gallery, but since this forum has the highest concentration of whiners, I hope we can keep it here
Let's see what those POS Canon sensors can do
G7 in harsh middle-of-the-day light. Planning involved stepping out of car, pointing, and shooting.
G7 with window light diffused through a sheet
20D with an embarrassingly slow 70-200 f/4
20D with a junk 28-135 kit lens under cave-like stadium lights
20D somehow managing a lot of DR
20D, reflector, a couple Vivitar 285s, and cheap Hong Kong radio triggers
1DII with only 1 cross-type sensor. Ack!!!!
