    Re: Vacation Camera

    I will add a plus +1 to the venerable s95. I always have it in my pocket, while on vacation, or otherwise. Single best pocket cam to date. Or you could wait for the s100 rumor, which is rumored to...

  6. Re: Canon zoom for landscapes at f.8-16, L or go for croplens?

    One last note to ponder for the original poster.

  7. Re: Canon zoom for landscapes at f.8-16, L or go for croplens?

    I do not like the 17-40 on a crop body. The 10-22 EFS, the 15-85, and the 17-55 will all give you more value. The 10-22 is KILLER for landscapes. If your most important desire is towards landscapes,...

    Denise,


    Have you been using off camera flash in any of your recent shots? And how many folks here use off camera flash besides Sean.

    Re: Just for fun; Lets spend 5K

    Bob,


    I would take it a step at a time. Today I would buy the Gitzo 2531 tripod as the rebate is almost gone, and at 439 bucks is a killer tripod.


    I would wait for the 5D MKIII, which is...

    Prices are going up, get used to it.


    Unless you have your head in the sand, all commodity prices are going up, and this will mean all Canon lenses will also go up. The entire world economy is in...

  14. Re: The Arctic Butterfly, does it work and is it more than just a secret technique?

    Steve,


    A lens pen and sensor cleaner, a giottos rocket, a couple of good micro fiber cloths, and some pec pads.


    Now you just need to decide where to spend the other hundred bucks.

    Re: Help Choosing First Off Camera Lighting Set

    Chris,


    For your proposed 400 bucks, you can get one AB800, a HOP reflector, and then get some relatively cheap, Calumet or Monfrotto stands, and a good 30x60 Softbox. The adapter to make your...

    Re: Help with gear choice/priority

    vizt,


    I think your first choice is spot on, the 70-200mm f4 IS is about the best lens canon has ever made. It works VERY well with the 1.4 II extender, at f5.6, and remains very sharp. It would...
