  • I'd be interested to hear any hands on results from the Rokinon (Samyang) 24 tilt and shift lens.  I know it has gotten some decent reviews but I'd still be interested in your opinion.
  • Like macro flashes used on some NCIS type shows.  The effective distance of a macro flash it less than two feet roughly, yet you see in the show macro flashes used on items 5 to 10 feet away.
  • Replied in Tin foil hat
    I don't worry about radiation infected photography equipment, my tin foil hat keeps all the radiation rays away.
  • Replied in Sensor size

  • The original 50 (1.8) and the 35 (2) are both very good lenses, though not perfect they do the job very well.  Since you are purchasing originals, you will be in the used market.  You should be ...
  • Back in the film day, the 85mm lens was THE portrait lens.
  • Replied in Broke (nt)
  • Just below Vancouver BC, the retailers can be hit hard in the states.  You have no idea how excited they were when the Canadian dollar went back to par, malls were re-vitalized.  And just below ...
  • As usual stuff on the net gets hyper language, but the pic is a close up but not extreme.  I'm not sure the lens, but many zoom and prime lenses could take that image.
  • Replied in Shoot in RAW
    If bettering images is important then RAW is best, I'm sure you've researched why.  But... download a simple photography software program like Picasa 3 which is free.  It will automatically ...
  • Autofocus isn't that critical with wide angles as so much is in focus anyway, you have leeway to make an error.  Check out the Samyang series of lenses, all manual but very good optically.
  • The Canon 16 - 35 f4 L is an excellent lens.  Read reviews here and else where.
  • I have three DSLR's but only two I use frequently.  On my cruise to the Caribbean, I didn't take the 5D 2 for the same reasons you left the 6D back in your hotel room.  I did take my Rebel XSi ...
  • With what you have in your kit, you have ultrawide zooms which will do the trick.  If I were you, I'd take 11 - 18 or your other wide zoom, your 24 - 100 and a fast prime for night shots.  If it ...
  • Replied in FF or crop?
    I haven't read all the replies but during the film era, 85mm was the go to lens for portraits; it has mostly to do with the nose and how a focal length handles the nose in a photo, the agreed upon ...
  • I have a friend who purchases lenses, uses them for one or two months then often will return them to the retailer; he buys so much equipment from them, they are easier on their return policy with him.
  • A few of my friends are into photography as well as myself of course, have been since 1973. I have come to the conclusion there are two ways a photographer can grow. The first type or way is the ...
  • If you were a photographer, wedding photography was far down on the status list of things to do in photography.  And wedding photographers were almost all men, in fact in most places, all men. ...
  • Almost all gear is good to excellent now, even your lowly kit lens.  That lens is quite capable of making "art" photos, the question is usually the quality of the equipment behind the camera - ...
  • There is an off and on button for IS, its there for a reason.  There were a number of articles out about roughly a decade ago about turning off IS if you don't need it.  IS could detract from ...
