  • A quick check of prices of the major camera stores in the Toronto area revealed that Downtown, Vistek, and Henry's are all selling the XT-2 with 18-55 for $1950. Aden is offering a 64k card and ...
  • There is certainly lots of detail, and the 15-45 holds its own against the primes, but is there not an over processed look in some of the shots - even at low ISOs? It reminds me of the results you ...
  • Before any more of you offer helpful advice on this issue, you may want to check the News & Rumor forum where this same "johnwicky" asked, "How many megapixels do I need?" several weeks ago. You ...
  • Also furry.
  • Noah is about to launch the ark as the rain begins to fall. The horrified anteater asks him, "What do you mean you only brought two ants?" Ba-da-boom.
  • Many prominent Victorians -- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle among them -- were convinced of the reality of pixies, and indeed many were photographed. Of course due to the limitations of long exposures, ...
  • Replied in An Alternative
    Yes, the adapter option does not sound like a good solution. I will re-think. Thanks for the input.
  • Thanks to all who offered advice.  Yes, of course I meant the XT-100. (And as an aside, why do camera makers show such a paucity of imagination when naming their  models? It is both confusing and ...
  • Created discussion thread Lens Adapters - Canon to Fuji
    I have a Sigma 18-250 lens I have been using on my Canon T2i. Would a lens adapter do a good job if it were fitted to an X-100?  Would all functions be preserved, and would shutter lag be ...
  • Replied in Which Canon?
    Yes, M43 is a format I have yet to really explore, but do find intriguing -- especially since the systems are so much more portable. The battery life is the only sticking point for me, but inroads ...
  • Replied in Which Canon?
    Of course there are all kinds of cameras I'd like to have, or at least try out. The most sensible course would be to stay with Canon, if only because I really like my Sigma 18-250 and Metz flash. ...
  • Replied in Which Canon?
    Why do I want to upgrade? Mostly for a change. I've had the same body and lens for years and I want to shake things up. Is that a rational reason? Not really, but why let that interfere with my hobby?
  • Created discussion thread Which Canon?
    My Canon T2i with Sigma 18-250 lens has served me well for six years, but I have been hankering for an upgrade for a while now. I was looking into a T7i, but what caught my eye were the price ...
  • Replied in Opteka Flashes
    Good advice, thanks. I have a Metz 44 that I was thinking of selling, but it is probably wiser to keep it.
  • Created discussion thread Opteka Flashes
    Does anyone have experience with these? Amazon is selling one for $80 Cdn that seems full-featured, but is it too cheap to be good?
  • If you factor in the exchange rate, that $429 equals about $500 Cdn. It looks like that is the best deal going right now.
  • Created discussion thread 10-18 & 50 f1.8 package
    I just ordered the two-lens package from Henry's here in Toronto for $499.99 Cdn. The same kit goes for $430 in the U.S. Does this seem like the best pricing I am likely to get? I can opt out of ...
  • Everything sounds great, and this would be a very worthwhile alternative to the T7i or other entry or intermediate level DSLRs. Except....for the battery life. 235 shots in this day and age just...

  • Thanks to all who offered advice. Very helpful!
  • Created question thread Camera Software
    I have been using Canon cameras and their software -- Canon Zoom Browser. If I were to get a new camera system, Fuji, for instance, would I have to add new software to process and store my images? ...
