    Re: Canon primes in white !?!

    I still think canon has a much more extensive super tele prime range, I think it's almost 2 to one L series to G series in 200mm and up primes if i'm not mistaken. . .
  2. Re: iStockPhoto.com - are they overly critical of images?

    I think the thing is they already have a bajillion pictures. . . idk. I do know that I've read a few articles about other stock sites that are much more profitable for the photographer, mostly in...

    Re: Post Your Best Motor-sport Photos

    Both of these were taken on the same day, with a canon 55-250 IS. 2nd one's a bit blurry, i actually was taking the picture as i ran toward the subject. He was unharmed but a bit annoyed [*-)]

  4. Re: Indecisive decision on next glass purchase

    Two things: One, I own and use the 55-250. It does produce good images, but if I was going to buy a telephoto lens again, I would go with the 70-200 f4L IS in a heartbeat. IS is EXTREMELY handy...

    Re: HDR process question

    I'm no expert but my impression was that you could align images if they're a little off from each other but i think that's more for if your camera shifts a bit between captures. I don't think a...

    Re: Lens Questions/Tamron 17-50

    No personally I'd get the tamron and the 24-105 and then put the $ that would be spent for the 50 1.8 towards the 580 EX II instead. Costs a bit more overall but I find the nifty fifty to be less...

    Re: Lens Questions/Tamron 17-50

    as someone who owns both the tamron 17-50 and the 50 1.8 I'll tell you my general use pattern. I love the tamron and it is on my camera about 98 percent of the time. What I've found, however, is that...

    Re: New wedding photos

    I agree with the other commenters about the vig. But the one that stopped my heart was the zoom blur one. . . I just thought "He must have either a lot of confidence in his abilities or he's crazy to...

    Re: Eye-Fi: why no CF format?

    I think the reason lies in what groups the eye-fi appeals to. It's really more targeted toward P+S owners, because not only is the transfer speed rather low, the read and write speed places it in...

    Re: 70-200 f4 L for portraits?

    Now this is the difference between photogs and politicians. . . At least we can work out our differences. At least until it comes to Canon vs. Nikon. . .

    Re: 70-200 f4 L for portraits?

    Really? that seems unexpected from a lens that doesn't extend at all for zooming or focusing.

    Re: 70-200 f4 L for portraits?

    well i tend to do a mix, some on location, some studio, but on location is what i tend towards more, as my studio still can't compete with natural light =/. The 85 f1.8 was a lens i was looking at...

    So I have a budget around 600, and i'm currently looking at some jobs in portrait photography now. Unfortunately, however much i love my tamron 17-50, it's just not quite long enough for a good...

    Re: decent midrange lens. . .

    thanks, i'll take a look at the sigma. An f2.8 tele zoom would be a welcome addition to my kit but i had heard mixed reviews about the original 50-150, if the upgrade has helped it's an attractive...

    Re: decent midrange lens. . .

    well i'm looking at about 600 from the tamron and i can probably scrape out another 2 or 3 hundred if necessary. I do tend to shoot on a tripod/monopod in low light (although when it comes to steady...

    decent midrange lens. . .

    Okay so i finally sold my big lens (tamron 200-500) and i'm considering reinvesting the $ into some glass that will get a bit more use. Right now i have a tamron 17-50 f2.8 that i use a lot and i'm...

    very cool stuff. . .thanks for the clarification.
  21. Re: Why are the autofocus sensors clustered around the middle of the frame?

    Hold on a moment. . .a negative shutter lag? Would that involve having the camera constantly shooting, then when you press the button it "reaches back" into the memory and chooses the image that it...

    Re: Few pics from Aero Show

    Whether it was intentional or not i like the way the helicopter blades are slightly blurred, it gives them the feeling of movement without just being a solid disk. Also like the colors of the jets,...

    Re: How many shots did you take?

    D50 is a 6.1 or 6.2 MP camera, and she shoots jpegs not sure what size though. Although this is sketchy math, my rebel XSi usually generates a 17MB or so Raw file vs. about a 3 MB jpeg,
