    Graduated ND Filters

    I have a B&W 0.6 Graduated ND filter (2 stops) that I use for landscape in conjunction with the EF 17-40mm f/4 lens and 40D. I find it very difficult from the veiwfinder to determine the orientation...

    Re: 1 bird 3 pictures

    Adding a circular polarizer will help reduce the glare off the water.

    Re: also looking for a walk around lens

    Since you're looking for a walking lens, let me throw the 70-200mm f/4 into the mix. The f/2.8 version is big and much heavier than the kit lens and you'll still be able to get excellent background...

    Worthwhile Camera Shops in Miami Area

    I'm going to Miami for the weekend and I was wondering if there are any good camera stores in the area. I'm looking for some good used camera equipment and accessories (small and medium format).

    Re: Using flash without external meter: possible?

    Sure you can, just review your exposures and adjust the output power on the strobes until you obtain a correct exposure. Set your desired aperature (i.e. f/8) and then adjust your shutter. It should...
  9. Re: "The photographer with the better gear will take the better images" - Opinions?

    I agree that statement is incorrect. A good photographer should know the limitations of his gear and should be able to take good pictures when he stays within the limitations (including kit lenses)....

    Re: Image sharpness on 17-40 F/4 L lens

    I'm currently using the 17-40mm on the 40D. Have you compared your images to others posted on sites like flickr? The 17-40mm won't be as sharp as the 70-200mm but I've been very happy with the...

    Re: 50mm f/1.4 or 85mm f/1.8 on a 1.6 Body?

    I've owned the 85mm f/1.8 and the 50mm f/1.8 primes. While the 85mm is a fantastic lens, I found it too long for most portraits on a crop sensor (headshots being the exception). I'd go with a 50mm...
  13. Re: Does it make sense? An $1800 Full frame DSLR from Canon

    You're right in the sense that lower MP hide lens aberrations which is what I meant by "reducing lens aberrations".


    It's not just pixel size that reduces noise, it's the on-chip (or software)...
  14. Re: Does it make sense? An $1800 Full frame DSLR from Canon

    You have to realize that sensor size and not pixels is at the root
    of high camera cost for FF. The silicon cost wouldn't change much if
    you had less pixels (you'd have a slightly larger yield with...

  17. Re: Choosing a general purpose lens for my Canon 450D

    It really depends on your intended application. If you primarily shoot landscapes the EF 17-40mm is a great lens (I haven't used the Tamron), excellent sharpness, color, minimal CA, and excellent...
