  • Replied in M5 vs 7DMII
    I have both. I shoot large swim meets with the 7DII. The big difference is that you can mount big white lenses on the 7DII and use the optical finder on it. I just did a large meet with both ...
  • I did some pictures today with the canon adapter and the 40mm 2.8. As it is a pancake it fits and works well on my M3, I am buying the M5 because I think the M3 is slow to focus, start and only ...
  • Buying a new camera and new lenses won't fix your problems. Learn how to take pictures first. I had a 70d that I shot sports with using Canon lenses. It worked fine asl long as I used the correct ...
  • I did newspaper sports in the 70s with a film camera and a 70-200 2.8 lens while limited to fairly low film ISOs. I published a lot of pictures with equipment much lesser than is available now. ...
  • Bobby:  about eighteen years ago i was in charge of the R&D and acquistion of WAAS in the FAA.  Since then I have had a couple of receivers and it works well in my car.   I have a 7DII and have ...
  • The question then becomes where do you draw the line?. Who draws it? It is clearly drawn in written guidelines in the print media. Certain edits are allowed. Look up the Reuters guidelines. ...

  • I view some of my photography as art and have sold it that way. Ansel Adams freely admitted his darkroom enhancements. I can enhance a sky just by manipulating luminance sliders in lightroom. ...

  • Replied in Lenses for M5
    I was out with the M3 earlier today.  It is slow starting which cost me a picture earlier today. .  Compared to my 7DII it is slower focusing and slow to capture.  It is slow with flash.  4 FPS is ...
  • Having done newspaper work I know what it means to be accurate. I think there is room for all genres and for free expression. All of it "is in the eye of the beholder" not in the eye of the...

  • Replied in Lenses for M5
    The 17-55 f2 is quite big in comparison to my M3 body which with EVF is about the weight of the M5.  I use M lenses.  Things have changed for me in the past few years when ISOs as high a ISO 6400 ...
  • After a few days shooting an airshow with a gray background while getting great exposures of the aircraft (no shadows) I put a blue sky with clouds background on one. It is hanging in my office. ...

  • What level of photography are you guys and women doing? I am a former professional who has had his own business, shot newspaper general news and sports, portraits in my own studio and sold a few ...
  • I have had an M3 with EVF for a year.   To start it takes damn good pictures.  However I think actuations feel slow.  I do not the focusing box.  It never seems to start in the right position and ...
  • I am a former professional who for years bought gear that would increase my capability to serve customers and hopefully would pay for itself. I have always viewed a camera as a tool to produce a ...
  • I have an M3 with an external EVF with the same 2.36  rate as the M5.  I have a 7DII and prior to that I had a 7D.  I shoot swim meets.   The EVF I have along with a Sony EVF I had previously  are ...
  • I have used bounce flash for years.  I have never found it necessary to shoot backwards except when bouncing off a wall behind me.  To do that you have to flash with a rotating head such as a ...
  • I have a Canon DC-1 EVF.  I had a Sony EVF for a NEX camera.  I also have a 7DII with an OVF that is far better than than either EVF for action.    I have used the DC-1 for over a year on an M3. ...
  • There is more than one way to get sufficient light on a subject.  I was doing weddings in 1998 and mostly was limited to ISO 400 film.   I did a lot of dark areas with fill flash which is ...
  • I have an M3.  While I like the photos I do not like the UI.  It is different and less friendly than my 7DII.  I hope the M5 is close to the UI of the 80D.
  • I'm a former wedding photographer.  I think clients would not be impressed with a small camera at their very important event no matter how good it is.
