  • Take a look at the MeFOTO line. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/892889-REG/Benro_a1350q1t_MEFOTO_A1351QA_Tripod_Kit.html I don't own one but it is on my "to buy" list. I've checked it out ...
  • Indeed. I did a shoot for them when my nephew was six months. I used a Pentax 67 and colour neg. Lenses wide-open to keep the shutter speed up and, therefore, very narrow DoF. Lot of misses but ...
  • Thanks. The two MILCs I have (M and NEX) are so incapable of achieving focus when my nephew is moving around that I was concerned. But I think it can work. I actually have a Sony a850 but have ...
  • I was going to write up the backstory but decided it was, ultimately, not critical for the main question. Which is: My sister and brother-in-law really like the candid photos I've taken of their ...
  • I would not go with only the 22 for two reasons: 1. The 18-55 is small and light so it won't really make a difference if you throw it in a pocket. 2. The 18-55 is cheap and good. So no reason ...
  • In, general very nice but I especially like the B&Ws. Very nice tonal range on those. btw your sketches are super! I love seeing good pencil and wash work like this.
  • DxO gives a substantial advantage to the Coolpix A over the M. An overall score of 80 vs 65, 1.3 bits of colour depth advantage, 2.6 EVs of dynamic range, and close to a stop of high ISO. I realize ...
  • I was thinking I would surely buy a Coolpix A when it was announced. But, 28mm is not a focal length I really like and the asking price remained too high last summer. Then the EOS M fire sale was ...
  • Thanks for the info. Noticed a nifty hot shoe bubble level on your M. Where did that come from?
  • You will enjoy the 11-22. Great lens. I love the 22mm. It hardly comes off the camera even though I have both zooms. Such a great lens. For the price they are going for I wouldn't hold out.
  • Replied in Pho-BS-er
    I agree. The phoblogapher is a really terrible site. That's why they don't allow comments anymore. I'm sure they got tired of people calling them out on all the silly/bad things they write.
  • I have two young nephews (2.5 years old and 6 months). Neither my NEX 5N nor my EOS M can do much when the 2.5 yr old is on the move (which is almost always). Just not fast enough. When ...
  • As has been mentioned, the a99 does not seem old enough for a refresh. The a88, as described by SAR, is a camera that I think Sony should have released either instead of the a99 or at the same ...
  • Replied in Canon logic.
    Only two companies are making money selling cameras (Canon and Nikon) and both are cutting back sales forecasts. Furthermore, mirrorless is only selling in Asia. My guess is that Canon is busy ...
  • I should add that with the 22mm f2 (which can be found for cheap) the EOS M looks like a compact. IE not an expensive camera that someone might want to steal and also casual/not imposing.
  • I love my EOS M. Don't know what your budget is, however. I just saw that Amazon Canada has the M + zoom + flash back in stock at $350 CDN. I would think it should check off everything on the list ...
  • Thank you very much for posting this. Video is something I intend to start playing with over the summer so I'm looking for any tips and instruction I can find. This was great.
  • The Canon is stabilized, and gives up only a stop to the Fuji (I don't know at what point in the zoom range). The Canon, from what I've seen in my photos, is a great lens – I have no complaints. It ...
  • Huff is a Leica fanboy. He won't fully admit it and likes to claim his "real-world" reviews are unbiased etc. But they aren't.
  • Replied in Sony 50mm F1.8
    Are those reviews who've actually used the lens? The 50 1.8 is a really good lens in every respect and I've used it quite a bit.
