  • Thanks!  I bookmarked both pages.  Right now, I'm mostly interested in what I can carry around in my hand.  The chimera looked like a good option because it does not appear as deep as most ...
  • Thank you for the recommendation! I checked it out and it is perfect for what I need, but then I looked at the price on bhphoto and was holy s hit!
  • I want to get head to waist and full body, and now that I think about it, the 9" softbox is way too small for what I need.  I am now thinking about getting a 16" one although it looks enormous to ...
  • Created discussions Mini Umbrella or Softbox?
    I'm thinking about three products at the moment. The first one is the lastolite brolly grip with a 20" umbrella, the second is 9" mini softbox made by Cowboy studio, and the third is a 12" octagon ...
  • Yes, you can get an m43 body pretty cheap, sometimes even with the kit lens, but you get what you pay for a lot of the time.  As a beginning photographer I purhcased an olympus e-pl1 and a ...
  • A serial number can be important in the case of some canon dslr models because it tells me which ones had issues in the past.  There are any number of reasons why someone would request it, outside ...
  • No flash provides TTL for $50, and those certainly do not.
  • No, I'm pretty certain they were all pros.  Engagement photos are completely different from wedding photos and require the photographer to at least have some past experience posing couples.  If ...
  • As far as I can tell, none.  I got a canon 550ex for $45 but it was missing the red IR plate on the front.  I did purchase a 420ez for $3 in great condition.  It can do just about everything ...
  • I was at the park the other day and noticed a bunch of wedding photographers shooting photos of grooms and brides to be in full dress or just wearing regular clothes, and a few things caught my ...
  • Replied in Get Both
    If you're thinking about expanding then you might as well get both.  I got the 50mm and a flash.
  • Yes, those are the ones I am referring to, specifically the Mark II.  I should have stated so in the very beginning, because I recently found out the Mark III, 1DX and all the other newer models ...
  • Yeah, I was thinking about the 5D for some time as well.  Unfortunately I require the use of a very wide angle lens and a 17-50 on a 1d is equivalent to 22mm at it's widest focal length.  The ...
  • Vignetting is easily cropped out when you set your crop to 5:7 in LR or PS instead of 3:2.  At 17mm it disappears completely, but at the higher focal lengths there is some slight vignetting on the ...
  • I'm currently using a 20d, which is about as heavy as a 5D.  I don't use a grip because the one I bought is horrible.  I mainly plan to take portraits with the camera, but I have an extremely ...
  • It will fit, I'll just have a little vignetting on the corners unfortunately.  I can't find a cheaper alternative at the moment.
  • Created discussions Is the 1D Too Heavy?
    I'm thinking about purchasing a Mark II N, but the weight is concerning, especially with a flash mounted. I've seen one photographer carry a 1D with a flash on a bracket and a 70-200 2.8L lens to ...
  • Sony is no good. There's no way to turn off picture review. They do offer the best IS though. Panasonic does slightly better video though and you can turn off picture preview on their cameras.
  • Replied in Pentax K-30
    Best bang for buck entry level DSLR out there.  It fits right in with your budget.  Try to get the same features from Nikon or Canon and you're looking at spending $1000.  If you want to take ...
  • Replied in High ISO
    Dxo is horrible at noise reduction, but good for things like adjusting out shadows, contrast, highlights, etc. more so than LR.
