  • Anyone else read this and think it was kinda... obvious?

  • Not surprised; surreptitiously taking photos of young ladies in swimwear is creepy in anyone's book. I'd certainly have approached him to check his motivations.
  • In terms of merely getting a properly exposed photo, even with flash, it's happened already. What we pay photographers for now is their equipment, lighting, composition, the studio, speed, holding ...
  • There's: Tamron 70-300 VC. Pros - faster focusing, particularly in acquiring initial focusing. - 300mm - works on full frame too Cons - starts at 70mm. Most find starting at 55 surprisingly useful ...
  • Given that there is two IS versions I thought it worth clarifying: Listed sharpest first is IS mark II, non-IS, IS mark I.
  • (1) The 18-135 STM is a very good lens and has a much more useful focal range than the 18-55. (2) The 75-300 is ...
  • While I don't know enough about video to provide a definitive answer, check out Magic Lantern. It provides Canon bodies with significant upgrades to functionality for both still and video users ...
  • I would ask the question in a video forum, though given your intended use I'd hazard a guess that lighting and sound are going to be the critical things.
  • It's likely to be a 'feature' of that lens model. Easily removed in post so nothing to worry about. Meh, they're just moaners - if they really cared about image quality they'd be shooting medium ...
  • Why are fewer people buying cameras? The massive rise in DSLR sales was an anomaly caused by a digital replacing film and improving rapidly that owners would often upgrade multiple times. The fall ...
  • I have the 550D and 5D mark I. The thing I like about full frame is the shallower depth of field combined with the sharper drop off to the out of focus areas. This is a result of the larger sensor ...
  • Replied in Get the STM
    In addition to sharpness and silent focusing during video you'll also find the STM version to: - focus more quickly. This will be mostly noticeable when obtaining initial focus. - have a ...
  • Replied in Too limiting
    Presumably designed to fulfil the needs of the small proportion of landscape photographers for whom a FF DSLR kit is too big, an APS-C sensor too small and existing Sony FF mirrorless too... whatever.
  • Replied in additionally
    What I meant (but didn't properly convey) is: - The helmets will put some faces in shade and some in direct sunlight. These may be in the same shot, with players facing the same direction - I.e. if ...
  • I'd get the full res photo and clean that up with some good noise reduction software. The results still won't be great as the picture is very underexposed but they'll be significantly better than ...
  • Neither are they, hence the rather loose and contradictory wording :-) When they say "dodging and burning may be acceptable if the ... objective was to adjust the tonal range of an image so that it ...
  • A fair few years ago I spent ages analysing the various 70-200 zooms. Not having much spare cash meant the phrase 'buy cheap, buy twice' kept going round my head. My findings were: - Canon's 70-200 ...
  • He didn't imply that anyone did, but wrote it to add context to: "fab value for money and weight though, which is why I have it."
  • Replied in additionally
    This is tothe original poster but it's essentially a more waffley version of your post so I've made it as a reply to yours. Good advice but I'm wondering if that'll work with those shade-providing ...
