  • ISO 100 and f3.2 You have no depth of field. Try ISO 200 and maybe shutter speed of 1/320 though I prefer 1/400. And not just lack of depth of field. You are out of the sweet spot of that lens by far.
  • Replied in I agree with jvc
    I agree with jvc. The 24-105 is basically a 15-85 for full-frame camera. I have the 15-85 and it's the closest thing to an "L" lens without being one. Most people don't realize it, especially when ...
  • Replied in Canon 7D
    Before you start replacing equipment, decide what aspect you would like to improve. You didn't tell us that. If you're cropping your images too much then a longer lens will help. If your ISO is too ...
  • Replied in Buy it Anyway
    If I remember correctly, the 17-55 weighs a ton making it a bit awkward as a travel, walkaround lens. Also, if all you're carrying on a trip is one lens, it's great to have that 15 on the short end ...
  • Replied in Buy it Anyway
    This is a great lens. Sharp wide open and closed down. Sharp at widest and longest. The closest thing to an "L" lens without being one. When I travel, unless wildlife is involved, I only take this ...
  • As I wrote, I very seldom use flash. Also, I was shooting in a concert-type hall with very high ceiling and I was more or less 20-40 feet away. I really wasn't in a position to document everything ...
  • I went from a T2i to a 70D. I liked the single point center focus better on the T2i than my current 70D. I liked the bounce flash capabilities of the T2i over my flawed 70D. Granted newer bodies ...
  • Don't get into the habit of shooting birds at such slow shutter speeds.
  • Mark & Lemmings, I took quite a few photos over the past few days ans many were bounced. I was using anything from manual flash to ETTL and FEC of anywhere from +1/3 to plus 2 or more. The FEC ...
  • Thanks. When I first complained not long after buying the 70D the responses were "it's doing what it's supposed to". Now that I'm revisiting at least you suggest a work-around. Thanks. I'll look ...
  • Replied in 15-85
    When you go on a trip, return and review your photos and find that the photos just don't really look like what it is you saw, it's because what your eye saw and what your lens saw just aren't the ...
  • Created discussion thread 70D and 500EX Speedlite
    Backup a few years. Prior body was a Rebel T2i. I bought one of those LightScoop reflectors to use with bounce flash using the onboard flash. Results were excellent. Then I bought a 70D. First ...
  • I had a similar experience many years ago. I walked into a store and played with a Canon and Nikon camera. The Canon was much more comfortable in my hand. Also, except for the advent of digital ...
  • 1DX, Thanks. I haven't been out photographing birds in a while. This spring I concentrated on horse jumping and polo in Wellington (the equestrian capital of the U.S.) and kite boarding on the beach. ...
  • Big difference between 15 and 18 on the wide side.
  • Replied in 15-85
    I have to say the 15-85. I'm on my 3rd one and it's the closest thing to an "L" lens. It's sharp long and wide. It's sharp wide open and closed down. The only time I carry one of 70-300L or ...
  • Yes, roped. That's obviously not what I meant. I was at the Icefield Center twice. Once on a trip with a friend when we focused on Glacier NP and just spent two days (very hectic and well-planned) ...
  • Great shots in both posts. I think I'm convincing myself to try and plan another trip to the area. If you're asking about danger, walking on glaciers beats chasing bears. I walked up the Athabasca ...
  • The last photo is of Angel Glacier located about 20 miles southwest of the town of Jasper. You have to drive about 15 miles on a secondary road. That's an actual glacier so it must be constantly ...
  • Oops. Hit wrong button. All of these were taken at either Glacier NP in Montana or Banff or Jasper in Alberta. If you have any questions about any or where they were taken just ask and I'll try to ...
