About me:

Various film bodies beginning in the 60's, including medium format, later a Minolta SRT 201; some misc. digital P&S cameras and eventually moved to Canon 10D; now shoot with a 30D & 1DMkIII, I replaced a S45 with a S100 for travel & casual shooting.

I use an iPhone 5s for more casual stuff lately, I'll probably add a mirrorless body to replace the 30D for shots beyond what the iPhone & S100 can do. Although I really like a "fit in the pocket" camera like the S100.

Lenses are a key part of photography gear, what I currently shoot with:

EF 20mm f/2.8
EF 24mm f/1.4L
EF 17-40mm f/4.0L
EF 50mm f/1.4
EF 24-70mm f/2.8L
EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS
EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS
EF 300mm f/4.0L IS
EF 300mm f/2.8L IS
EF 800mm f/5.6L IS

Tripods, monopods, heads, a 4th Dimension Mongoose M3.6 gimbal, flashes, flash extender, plus the routine assortment of parts & pieces. I'm still looking for skill....

In spite of my limitations, many of my photos have been published. Even a blind squirrel gets lucky sometimes and finds a nut...

  • It's unlikely you found this as it's a crowd funded project that just started. Looks like USD 36 has been raised so far. It may be useful for some photogs, but not for me. Zooming Partner on Indiegogo

    New seller, brand new in unopened boxes at 50% off? High risk of a scam, I wouldn't do it. Amazon won't know anything about this seller until customers provide reviews & feedback, by then it might ...

  • Meaningless comment, we need to speak in terms of exposure times. Optical is not physical movement of the sensor, again you need to learn the different techniques, their pros and cons, before ...
  • I commented that there is no such thing as optical IBIS, do you disagree? It shows the OP lacks knowledge related to image stabilization techniques. Which spelling mistake? I do make typos. I would ...
  • Go back and read the posts. I haven't claimed or suggested anything. I asked your references and experiences to support your claims. We'll see when the camera is reviewed, as I've continuously stated.
