  • Is it outdoor or dim indoor? Do you need flash or fast prime? Is it large? Some large churches have rules the keep photographers from getting too close. You may need 200mm just for full body shots. ...
  • Please post an example with EXIF so that we can see what the camera set in P mode. Is the blown highlight on you main subject or some foreground object?
  • Until they have totally all electronic shutter, both mirrorless & DSLR use mechanical shutters. Most mirrorless have electronic first curtain, but the second curtain is still mechanical. For ...
  • Replied in Finally!
    Yes, since he already has an M3, all he needs is an adaptor and he will have a 760D sensor for lens test. But I doubt that will ever happen. Krause will stays with his 7D2 as test camera.
  • I don't worry about the few mirrorless users. It is the smartphone users that definitely do not know how to turn off the synthetic shutter sound.
  • The new Tamron looks interesting. VC (IS), weather sealed. $600. Weights more than Canon f2 IS, but less than the new L & Sigma f1.4.
  • The non-L 70-300 IS is a pretty good lens. The much older variants of 75-300mm are of poor quality. These are typically sold as a set of kit lens. An inexperience user, holding a camera with a ...
  • Replied in This one.....
    One of the reviewer on Amazon (by the name of Byrnes ) says that "the card is deeply recessed."
  • Samsung's consumer grade 850 EVO series 2 TB currently sells for $750. The 16 TB drive here is an enterprise class with 8 times the capacity. It will sell for > 8 times the price. You pay a lot to...

  • Replied in So far so good
    I installed Win 10 on my 4.5 year old PC the first day (July 29). My PC had many upgrade thru the years and now has 16G of RAM & 3 HDs. The installation took a bit over an hour, completely hands ...
  • Canon was moving up the focal length range with IS versions of their prime lens. There was the 24, 28 f2.8, and then 35 f2, with IS, USM and much better optics.  But the 50mm 1.8 is only a copy of ...
  • My Think Tank Speed Freak can take 3 main items: (1) 5D Mk3 mounted with 24-105L (2) 70-200 F4 IS or 100-400 Mk2, depending on how much weight I want to carry.
  • The first photo with ISO 1600 and f14 is not the best way to test a lens. At f14, all lens suffer resolution loss due to diffraction. Besides the noise caused by such high iso blurs out fine details. ...
  • Decades ago, I have borrowed my brother's FD (non AF) 24 f2.8 many times. Optically, I think they are near identical. In order to have a full line of EF lens, Canon just redesign their entire FD ...
  • I saw them last year in a Korean owned supermarket in the Los Angeles area. -- Peter Kwok Click here for my PBase gallery WYSIWYG - If you don't like what you get, try to see differently.
  • Technically you are right, the EF-M 11-22 is slightly better.  But the OP has a 60D, not a EOS M that takes EF-M lens. TyphoonTW addressed the OP saying the 10-18 is "the best you can get." Bringin ...
  • From your gear list here, you don't have anything wider than 24mm. Thus, even a kit lens or the general purpose 18-135 STM is wide for your. The next wider lens is the 15-85 IS, also a standard ...
  • Replied in Impressive!
    Several years ago, I visited this building with a Ef-s 10-22 on a crop body. I can see the huge difference between 11mm and 16mm equivalent. I feel inspired by your shots.  It makes me want to go ...
  • Professionals need equipment that they can trust even in rough environment. I have dropped my 70-200 f4L IS with a loud thud and gasps from on-lookers. It was a concrete floor covered with thin ...
  • Replied in Canon 55-300mm ?
    Can makes 75-300, 55-250, and even 55-200. But there is no 55-300.
