  • No, I have several systems and each has a purpose.  My M system is lightweight and easy to travel with.  My 7D MkII and long zooms are great for wildlife and sports and my Canon R and new RF ...
  • Funny but I have 2 M5 bodies that are pushing 3 years old  and get a lot of use and travel and neither has this problem.  I tend to keep them in neoprene slip over cases that helps keep dust off ...
  • I'm guessing that is a blade for a big wind generator. I would hate to come upon that on some small road in the UK, just passing an oncoming car is difficult enough some times. Camera data says it ...
  • I own both the 7D MkII and the R and the lens mentioned as well as the Tamron 70-200 G2.  While I usually prefer my DSLR for wildlife and sports I have been experimenting with the Canon R and ...
  • When I shoot portraits of kids I always tell them if they give me 5 or 6 good poses they can make a silly face. These are my granddaughters from a few years ago with their sill face shot.
  • Hi, thanks for your nice comments. I usually shoot sports with my 7D MkII and I think when I am up over 1/1000 sec. I get 9 fps so yes it is faster than the Canon R. But I wanted to try it out, a ...
  • You have to be old enough to appreciate that one!
  • I have a couple of these programs, mostly from Topaz. It's kind of fun to play with them. I sometimes imagine if I ever retired to a small community I could get a booth at the craft fares and sell ...
  • Never played this game before!  I liked the "urban decay" aspect of the original and wanted to enhance that. I haven't played around in awhile with Luminar Flex, it has some decent presets that ...
  • I was using AI Servo which I know drops that burst speed to about 5 fps but the players are moving so fast I didn't want to  use just the "One Shot" AF setting.  Shutter speed ranged between ...
  • Created discussion thread Happy with girls soccer pictures
    I  usually shoot my granddaughter playing high school JV soccer with the Canon 7D MkII but tonight tried out the Canon R. I mostly shot with a Tamron 150-600mm G2  lens using a monopod.  Light got ...
  • Created discussion thread Bluebird doing some house hunting
    I'm headed to my granddaughter's JV soccer game in a bit and was getting gear ready. I usually shoot her playing with my Canon 7D MkII with a Tamron 150-600mm G2 lens but today I wanted to bring ...
  • Well I have been planning to get one for some time. I was torn between the RF AF or MF version and also the EF AF model. I was watching an EF AF model on Ebay that was used in Like New condition ...
  • Created discussion thread Got my first RF lenses
    I decided to get a few RF mount lenses. Picked them up from MPB.com  in New York. I have dealt with them on trades and always been happy and the prices for used in Like New shape was fine with me. ...
  • Cool tip. I sometimes have moved it by accident with my big chubby fingers. This is an easy fix.
  • We had a family get together on New Year's Eve and while waiting for midnight several of the kids roasted marshmallows over the new Solo Stove Bonfire that my brother got for Christmas. Great ...
  • Well you told me pretty much what I was thinking in the back of my mind.  I have a few trades going on with MPB out of New York on some other gear and they said they would give me $430 for the ...
  • Created discussion thread Trying to decide on my 35mm lens
    So I bought the R last month and am using it so far with my EF mount lenses via the adapter mount with ring. I already own the Sigma 35mm f1.4 ART with the Canon EF mount and have been very happy ...
  • I've owned the Sigma and used it on my 5Ds with good results but am going to sell mine now that I have the R and get the RF 35mm. Partly it is due to the latter being lighter and smaller and the ...
  • Several years ago my 24-70mm f2.8 L was stolen and I needed a quick replacement for an unexpected trip I had to make to England and the insurance claim was held up so I just had to buy a less ...
