  • Well, I was going to say a good handlebar pack that can double as a camera bag...but then I noticed you were riding a recumbent!! Let me give you a different outlook.....I did a 2,000 mile bike ...
  • I am sorry but I cannot give you advice on moving from Pentax to Canon, except to give you my experience. I wanted FF, GPS, wi-fi, and remote hook-up for astronomy.  Pentax was not moving towards ...
  • There was a lot of interest in these chips when they first came out...at least in the astronomical community. Then it faded fairly quickly.  Not sure why.
  • Thanks for posting the pictures. I wonder if I could do HDR on astronomy shots???
  • Given that SBIG has a $200 preminum for a B&W version so explanation makes sense.  By the time you bring the production costs forward to retail......$200 makes sense. I think Canon could easily ...
  • As a Forester I don't have a clue about market demand for electronic products, but I do remember back in the 1970's doing a survey of cross-country skiers and finding out that NONE of them wanted ...
  • Probably less than Canon thinks is a lot!!! Canon did introduce this camera several years ago: http://www.dpreview.com/news/2005/6/1/canon20da So they are aware of the market.....but they probably ...
  • I am not sure that you need a huge market. Astronomy camera's have a very small market.  There would be a much larger market for a black and white DSLR. Here is a link to astronomical camera's. The ...
  • Thanks for that link. In that discussion there is a link to a company that will replace the sensor in you 5D with a monochrome one for $6,000. You can also get some other interesting filters. http: ...
  • I was out doing some astronomical imaging with my 6D last night with a friend and we were talking about how nice it would be to have a 35mm FF black and white chip.  Since I mostly shoot black and ...
  • I briefly looked at this lens for my daughter.  I bought her a SL-1 kit set-up for Christmas and she wanted a smaller lens.  I was so focused on the SL-1 I overlooked the fact that it fit my 6D. Th ...
  • Created discussions Small Lens for Canon 6D......
    I have a Canon 6D and have been using it very little due to its large size.  It is hard to give up a Pentax K-X with the AA batteries. Today I noticed that most of the "large" size is really due to ...
  • Well, my primary camera is a Pentax K-x.  Love the small size and AA battery capability. So the back-up is a Canon 6d.....nice camera, but oh so much bigger than the K-x.  So have been using the 6d ...
  • That Astro-tracer sounds like a handy accessory.  Will the GPS function work with the K-x?  The AA batteries is where the K-x has a real advantage. The k-x is a fairly good astro camera, but just ...
  • I have a Pentax K-x. I have bought a Canon 6D.  Now the Canon 6D is a wonderful camera.  It is, however, much larger than I expected.  I have been using it as an astrophotography camera....it is ...
