  • Because the 17-55 is very very good.  I moved to 6D a few months ago but keep and use my 17-55 still on a 40D body - I had to buy a bigger camera bag but it is worth it. The 250$ you are worried ...
  • Yes, it means I am using f8/11/16 more than I could without the IS. It is also very useful for indoor video using available light.  Actually amazingly good. One can discuss about image quality ...
  • I bought the Canon EF 35 f2.0 IS USM. No complaints. Main reasons were the size/weight, the IS (which is exceptionally good), and indoor video. I cannot compare the image quality but it seems good ...
  • Replied in JPEG AND RAW
    With 6D I shoot RAW and JPEG. Mostly the JPEG is useable out-of-camera with no post processing needed - yes, you do need to nail exposure and check when the light changes but RAW is not going to ...
  • I agree with mikebg. I owned this lens for 6 years and it does a great job, especially in low light. Nothing negative springs to mind.
  • Replied in Gifts
    Reflecting on this I was reminded of my own inability to predict what makes a good gift for my own daughters.  What I think they "ought" to appreciate is not actually what they want. She is a ...
  • Thanks for the advice on the SSD. I can imagine how brilliant this is and have a friend who has it so I have seen it in action.  I am not sure what it costs for a Mac Mini, but I was thinking to ...
  • The lenses she has are not that special and burdening a youngster with the desire to buy L glass not such a good present perhaps. I would take a look at the Fuji X, or maybe a mirrorless - ...
  • It depends what she does with the iPad. The retina display is better, but if you just use the IPad to check your mail you won't appreciate it. I like it for three reasons: 1) I do a lot of reading ...
  • Replied in Mac Pro
    This makes a lot of sense to me and fits what I observe.  Looking to a future of D800 resolutions and much higher resolution monitors I wonder whether a bit of extra memory on a Mac Mini (2012) is ...
  • Replied in Crucial
    Thanks for the additional info. For many people reading this thread and knowing nothing about how computers work, I am sure your advice is valuable. Myself I have both written software and designed ...
  • Not sure I understand the question.  You have a few options how to record video on FF; the lens does not change of course.  What do you want to achieve?
  • Replied in Crucial
    I think you did not read my question, or perhaps I wrote it carelessly.  I think you mean well but I am hoping for contributions from people who know Aperture and the Mac Mini. When you say that ...
  • Replied in Crucial
    Thanks for your opinion, Chris.  This is exactly the kind of real life input I was hoping for.
  • Replied in Crucial
    Thanks. You confirm what I am suspecting.
  • Replied in Crucial
    Mr Gaussian Blur, I am getting blurred by your posts.  Your contribution here seems to be incredibly obvious, patronising even, but perhaps I am missing something.  "What I am doing" is Aperture on ...
  • Replied in Crucial
    Thanks for the tip on Crucial. They seem to have what I would need at a fair price. 8GB is probably the one to go for, or do people think 16GB will be noticeably better?
  • Thanks for all the inputs. Corsair does not seem to have a proposal for late 2012 Mac mini.  I think I need DDR3-1600 in a 204 pin package and without ECC.  It looks like Kingston have an offer ...
  • Created questions More memory on Mac mini
    I have 4GB on my late 2012 Mac mini. Is this enough for Aperture? I have the feeling the computer has difficulty to process everything, although it may be to do with the lack of a separate graphics ...
  • Nice video. I was playing with the 430 to see what happens in the OP scenario. When you use high ISO then you have trouble even with the flash on minimum power settings (1/64) and subject 10 feet ...
