  • This looks like a pretty good deal for the bundle of body + very-good kit "L" kit lens: http://www.canonwatch.com/hot-deal-canon-eos-6d-24-105mm-f4l-1850/ However, we're getting close enough to ...
  • I don't have a sense of the relative darkness of 0.005 Lux. What is that in EV, if a conversion makes sense?

    My impression is that the illumination from a full moon is a lot more than 0.005 Lux....

  • To get the best print quality, a specific printer should have a custom printer profile for each ink and paper it uses to make prints. My understanding is that Costco has an arrangement with ...
  • What I've noticed is that the excellent prices would show up and go away throughout the end of the year, not just the Black Friday weekend. IIRC, it seemed the best prices actually showed up in ...
  • To me, that is underwhelming. YMMV. I've been doing volunteer photography and giving away 1000's of prints per year as event mementos for 4+ years now. It is unusual for Canon NOT to have a ...
  • That's essentially the deal I decided on in late 2013. The extras turned out to be quite nice ... better than I expected. I went with Adorama because I do a lot of printing, and online vendors who ...
  • Nice capture. I suppose that is a son/grandson/relative, and a delightful image for at least sentimental reasons. My guess is that we are in agreement that to capture such an image, and if we had ...
  • Agree. I think the hyperfocal concept is overall flawed, but can be marginally helpful with uwa (ultra wide angle) lenses like a 14mm on f.f. (full frame) or fish-eye. Those lenses have huge DOF. I ...
  • If you don't already have EF lenses, this looks like the best deal / value for you. Online stores are mostly "order takers" and then coordinate shipping. They differ on issues like: (1) whether Canon ...
  • http://www.samsclub.com/sams/tripod-worklight/prod11020604.ip Article name: Stanley Fat Max Ultimate Portable Tripod Light I noticed this lighting device today, and wondered how it might be for ...
  • Uncle . I've lost interest in being insulted when having a different opinion than yours. I'll concur with the original Subject and abbreviated text in the body ... "EOSM is not THE action camera, ...
  • Nit. Is it possible to re-arrange the order that the Gear List shows up? It seems to be FEFS "first entered, first shown". Or actually, it seems random. Or not? In my example, the first entry is an ...
  • Thanks for the clarification. Sorry to be an engineer and quibble about the precise meaning of precise ... ;-) But .... I suppose I could do some math and figure out the "window of opportunity" for ...
  • To me, the OP's example is hardly a tough challenge to "Action" and AF speed. Same for the Reply example. I'd describe both captures as a "piece of cake" to get a sharp photo. The EXIF is missing ...
  • Underwhelmed ... as I'd really want IS for hand-held captures in not great light. By "low key", I infer the OP means "available low light", like at dusk or urban ambient light. In that scenario, my ...
  • You asked for predictions on prices in the holiday season ... after Black Friday and towards the end of the year. The above was my guesstimate.
  • Replied in The bad news
    Agree, and even the (original) 7d will be somewhat marginal for indoor sports. You'll be able to get ok images of the player paused before action ... like at the free-throw line. If a monopod is ...
  • I'm mostly ignorant about video, so consider the source . Canon makes STM (which I think stands for stepper-type-motor) lenses that are less noisy during focus adjustments when using the camera's ...
  • Probably not. They are meant to be used together. You don't want to be using a "dry swab". You should be ok. The 70D has DPAF , which is different than other Canon sensors. However, all Canon ...
  • IIRC, 6d's were as low as $1400 in late 2013. http://www.canonrumors.com/2013/12/deal-canon-ef-24-105-f4l-is-648/ So .... $1300 range isn't unreasonable for just the body. Usually, a better value ...
