  • 1.  Full frame image is able to handle a crop better than a smaller sensor.  It was thus so in the film days and its still true today.  If I take a sensor that is half full frame then crop that ...
  • The Canon 50mm f1.4 is an okay lens, but it has a history of repairs.  Snoop around and check out third party 50's.
  • Put it in "Green" mode and shoot, if the pic is"normal" then you know it is you and the camera settings.  The green mode takes over the camera and all settings, so its a reasonable way to see if ...
  • I tried researching slumping DSLR sales and what I kept bumping into was camera sales in general slumping in 2013 and 2014, which shouldn't be any surprise.  I had this conversation with my son ...
  • Exposing to the right received a great deal of acclaim when it first came out but has died somewhat of a quiet death.  It has disappeared into the shadows not so much because it is wrong, it ...
  • The thing is, I have been posting pics here for years without a problem.  So some where a change has been made.  I can't tell you what RAW processor is used, whatever one Picasa employs.  I like ...
  • I shoot in RAW and use Picassa.  Sometimes I can post pics here from my album there but other times I get the wrong format rejection notice.  Now all RAW pics in Picassa are converted to JPEG (or ...
  • The newest Canon 50 mm STM has 7 blades instead of 5, if I were purchasing now, that's the one I would get, better bokeh.
  • The photo in my post above is taken with the Canon original 35mm f2 at 1/100th which in theory should have been quick enough but you can see a touch of softness in the photo, which in its ...
  • When around store windows, or lots of windows lighting the area, you can use lower ISO and faster shutter speeds, but get out of those conditions and you are pushing the limits of the camera/lens ...
  • It sounds like you are quite experienced in street shooting so what I'll say you already know. First I own the Sigma 50 f1.4 and the Canon 35mm f2 lens, I've used both for street photography. ...
  • Difference between f2.8 and f1.8 is 1.3 stops is a big deal in night photography, trust me, I do a lot of night stuff.  With night photography you are always - shooting on the streets - struggling ...
  • It won't be until after you've owned about 5 or 6 bags that you'll finally sort out what works for you.  I started with the traditional small rectangular bag (too small), when to a large ...
  • The Rebel series of camera will do you just fine, get a model that is still being sold new but isn't the most current, it will do everything you need, and you will save money.  Or do like I do and ...
  • I'm trying to figure out where you are shooting that 50mm or 24mm is too much of a crop for you.  The only circumstance that makes sense is you are shooting indoors.  For indoor work, I've used ...
  • If you haven't tried night street photography, hustle your butt out there with your new 50mm f1.8 lens and try it out. f2.8 is too slow. https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/kEM-rLU6nRPL33Bpa9k0Vy ...
  • First, I'm surprised your state was so slow in adopting the background check requirements, I've been living with hit for at least 15 years or more now, here in British Columbia.  If you are going ...
  • The flaw in your argument as to what lenses to get is what you point out, you end up only using a few, which for most folks is true.  But only using a few lenses isn't the same thing as everyone ...
  • The first shot isn't a traditional portrait looking image, but it is a strong image with great colour and less defined contrast. Don't change it, the others shots look like portraits others have ...
  • Replied in First shot
    When I initially saw the first shot, I didn't like it but I found the more I looked at it the more I liked it, now I love it.  For me a Canadian, it has an Alex Colville look to it, a well know ...
