  • You sound like me, 5 years ago. My first lens (for kids' soccer) was the 70-300is, which is rated slightly above the 75-300.  As I got into photography, I bought the often recommended 50mm 1.8 for...
  • Also, Because crop sensors are smaller, they do not utilize the perifery of the EF lenses.  Since the center of the lens is usually the sharpest, this is (for the most part) an advantage.
  • The Sl1 is a crop sensor camera, like most consumer dslrs. Canon crop sensor cameras can use either EF or EFS lenses.  EFS lenses, however, cannot be used on Full Frame (professional) cameras....
  • If you are not already familiar with rodeo photographer Matt Cohen, check out his website. http://www.mattcohenphoto.com/ He also recently wrote a blog post on Big Lens Fast Shutter about packing...
  • Once you switch - it becomes second nature. I tried it for sports and now I use it all the time.  Originally it was to be able to focus on one player in a crowd, or to keep from accidentally...
  • Created discussions 300mm 2.8 options ?
    I am looking at options for a 300 2.8 lens.  The main purpose is youth sports.  I am an enthusiast, i.e. I don't make any money from photography. Currently, I have the Canon 70-200isII, and the...
  • Replied in Monopod Advice
    I purchased my first monopod 9 months ago.  At that time, I had difficulty finding info online.  I ended up choosing the sirui p326 for $99. As the previous poster mentioned, the Gitzo monopods are...
  • Created discussions Tripod head for Video ?
    I am looking for suggestions for a head to use with a canon vixia hf G30 camcorder.  This is for my wife who sometimes borrows my sirui monopod or manfrotto tripod to use with the camcorder.  She...
  • Excellent question, tundracamper. You obviously know the show. They have been guilty of browbeating people in the past, sometimes to the point of driving listeners away. Although, I have noticed a...
  • Here is one that I have permission to post.  They are all of kids and I said I wouldn't post them online. BLFS reviews photos every month online, but in this case, they allowed the option of...

  • I have long been a fan of the podcast Big Lens Fast Shutter. Recently, they added a new service, Critical Beatdown - a portfolio review, where you submit 15 photos and they send you a recorded...
  • Thank you, doctor.  I have enjoyed reading some of your other posts as the Sigma 120-300 is on my wish list. Your opinion is appreciated. Best Wishes.
  • I recently took the plunge and bought the Canon 70-200 is ii lens.  I'm having trouble assessing the focus.  I took these 2 photos with my canon 60D, focused on the top line at 16.5 inches.  Both...

  • Replied in Congratulations
    It looks like you did a good job of recognizing the limitations of your equipment and getting the shots you were capable of getting.  That's much better than showing a bunch of shots and making...
  • Good Plan - BTW Gary is right about the 200 being a little short. But, don't just shoot the action.  The reaction photos may be more important - celebration, dejection, etc.   And don't forget...
  • Created discussions Best Book on Posing?
    Does anyone have a suggestion on a portrait posing book?  I am an enthusiast/intermediate photographer.   Thanks.
  • Replied in Join the club
    It's a shame that people don't make the effort to properly thank you.  I can't say I'm surprised.  Remember, almost everyone thinks the camera does all the work.  I no longer take offense when...
