  • I'm in Quebec (big city for Canadian insurance companies HQs) and have worked or have been a contractor for Cooperators, Inalco (Industrial Alliance), SSQ, and Desjardins and have asked the ...
  • Replied in Out of hand
    Sorry if this seemed out of hand, no hard feeling on this side.  I still find this funny and am not trying to fight or insult anyone here.  It might be the French in me, but I was only saying that ...
  • To me, what he refers to is closer along the lines of asking a chef "anything good on the menu tonight?" than it is to asking a cyclist how fast his is bike. The question is implying that someone ...
  • Totally agree and totally OT so I'll close the parenthesis right here... ;)
  • I think I'm going to keep this one on hand! ;) In unrelated news I decided to give mirrorless a try.  Got a terrific deal at my local store on an EOS M and so far I can't argue with the fact that ...
  • This I don't think there's a comment that irritates me more than one along the lines of "wow, great gear, it must take really good pictures".  That's the moment when I really wanna say something ...
  • Totally agree with you on this one Michael!  Some features will be missing, for some others you'll have to do a combination of presses instead of having a dedicated button and that can definitely ...
  • YOU (proverbial you, as in the photographer) can tell the difference right away, no doubt about that.  The question is : Can a client seeing only the shots you selected as keepers tell if it was ...
  • Back in the days... shoot three frames, wait 2 minutes for the buffer to empty itself.  Repeat. ;)  Was my first dslr too (up from the rebel G) and I don't think I've owned it a full year before ...
  • This goes both way... APS-C now often have swivel screens, a great plus when doing macro or video work. Cameras like the 7D with an AF processor are pretty darn fast when it comes to AF, ...
  • Got this in my e-mail a few weeks back from my KelbyOne membership : " KelbyMediaGroup members like you can get preferred admission to Dollar Photo Club ; just choose "KelbyMediaGroup" when asked ...
  • I can tell the difference between a 300D (original Rebel) shot and a 5D III shot, does that count? ;) Seriously, in these days, in normal shooting conditions and viewing condition, except if you ...
  • On a side note, do you NEED to be travelling with 16K$ worth of gear?  I mean will you be there on assignment where you need all of your gear and it happens to be on a cruise ship, or are you ...
  • Can't help you with insurance, being a Canadian and all ;) , but I can tell you about cruise security.  Your cabin is just about the safest place on earth to leave stuff, as you only have one crew ...
  • Would you look at that!  I just realized from the gadgetinfinity website (my v5s are at the studio, where I'm not currently) that the pc sync cable that comes with the cactus seems to have a 3.5mm ...
  • I can't give you a complete answer as I trigger my v5s from my hot shoe, but I can guarantee that the sync port is not output only because I use it with my Sekonic through the Sekonic's pc port ...
  • I was having a totally different talk with a friend who has had a video business for a long time now and his son his following in his tracks as part of the company and he told me something that ...
  • I would agree with you.  Sticking a meter right under a client's eye when you quickly change the lighting setup is a little too invasive for most, while putting it under the chin is lore ...
  • Public relations do a lot when it comes to having passes, as much as some people may hate it.  A few years back, I wanted to try sports photography, just for the kick of it and to see what it was ...
  • No, but what if we put another example where there are?  When my girlfriend gets her hairs done by her hair stylist, she doesn't describe herself as a professional hair stylist, just as a hair ...
