  • Replied in I like my 6D
    for street and general shooting, i strongly vote for 24-70mm f2.8II or the new 16-35mm f4.0IS lenses, in that order ;-) those 2 lenses on a FF camera would do wonders! cheerz.
  • oh, common, bronx. steph is hugging some ugly looking rock and you call that "nicely planned" shot? now, if steph was putting suntan lotion on generously by the pool, you know, from an artistic ...
  • hey, mark, what happened to the basking by the pool side, rubbing suntan lotion shots? i think i'll have vote a resounding "NO" to steph this time :-D cheerz.
  • photo #1 is the best in this series. you can see lots of energy and beauty here. the rock formation is the best in this one, IMHO. i always look at a photo to see what it depicts and what kind of ...
  • Replied in Lens?
    you could rent some WA lenses and see which one you think you need. i wouldn't let other people make up my mind. also, i find the notion of "adding lenses to my COLLECTION" a bit bizarre, do you ...
  • hello, nancy. i have a question regarding Lee's GND filters, how do you clean them and if you use any kind of cleaner? although i take care of my filters very well but in case if i get them dirty ...
  • marti, i assume you mean "voltage" not current. besides, the canon charger is designed to be able to charge a battery using 110V-240V  around the world. the canon charger has circuitry to convert ...
  • very very cool, one of the best i have seen! cheerz.
  • well, rick, by the way of 1Dx performance, fast frame speed, low iso, etc, one can safely assume that they are all 1Dx cameras. i don't think those mag. companies and newspapers would cut corners ...
  • Replied in 1DX High ISO.
    this looks good for such a high iso but i don't know what it will look like if the photo is taken at night ;-) my hunch is that it'll look quite scary! i have used iso 6400 in my 1Dx at night, ...
  • i have used this prime with my 5D and 40D in the past and never missed or noticed the IS. this lens is designed very nice ergonomically and AF is quite fast when there is plenty daylight. when ...
  • phil, when i visited DC, my whole day was spent visiting monuments and it wasn't enough due to long distances from each other. so, you being with the family, count probably on 3 days to visit ...
  • hi steve, i enlargrd these 2 shots to 100% because i liked them. with all due respect, my observation is at 100%, the bird is a bit soft and the branch in front of it is very sharp and focused, if ...
  • i have the Lee setup kit and several GND filters but haven't had the time to experiment with them. but from a little experiment with them, i think they'll work nicely with those situations you ...
  • Replied in Arches NP
    Ha,HA, that is the biggest monument i have ever seen...LOL :-D cheerz.
  • thanks for the link, now i know why these big white lenses are so beyond the reach of average photographers ;-) i own the 600mm f4.0II and 300mm f2.8II, i appreciate them even more! but then ...
  • Replied in Tilt/Shift
    bill, i didn't notice any distortion when i viewed your ts shot enlarged 100%. i have both ts 17mm/ts 24mm but i haven't had time to play with them. i am sure it will take some time to master ts ...
  • steve, i don't know if i am lucky or what, i have never had that problem! my luggage has always arrived with me together. i have even put my laptop in my check-in luggage and nothing has happened ...
  • i put my Gitzo GT1542 series1 travel tripod in the bottom of my main luggage, problem solved ;-) i put my lenses in my backpack, and i wrap them with my undies and socks so they are safe and ...
  • well, i didn't have go to military to understand the capacitor characteristic ;-) i have a canon 600ex-rt flash that i use very seldom, i read the manual many times but i didn't see anywhere to ...
