This is a dire message from the future:

There is a glitch in time, history is repeating itself, the only way for RTTP to stop this is to go back in time and stop Aril and Alex from their cocks rubbing on each other.

In the past week I've gotten:
-Canon 6d
-Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens
-Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Telephoto Zoom Lens

Still need to get a wide angle lens, macro extension tube set, extra battery, bag, 64GB SD, and maybe an external mic and flash.

-Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens ? the fuck?
why didn't you save the money and get a 50mm 1.8?



toggletoggle post by the_reverend   at Oct 1,2013 12:27pm
don't get a 64GB card, get a few 16GB cards. so if one dies, you don't lose everything.



toggletoggle post by Alx_Casket  at Oct 1,2013 12:45pm
I liked that the 40mm was a pancake form, and I got it for the same price as the 50mm. I also preferred the metal mount (better build quality, didn't want to deal with the 50mm sticking to the camera that I've read a lot of people experience) and the STM for quieter focus. Plus, I don't have a huge bokeh boner, so the 1 stop didn't make a difference to me. Also focuses closer than the 50mm.

I need a large card for raw HD video, planning to load up magic lantern once I've gotten the hang of the basics. Though maybe I'll get 2x32 instead

The 85mm 1.8 is nice to shoot with.

he's shooting with an APS so 85mm would be way long.

6d is a full frame, not cropped.

I was thinking about getting the 24-105mm L lens with IS, reviews are saying it's sharper than the 24-70. The macro is a nice feature, but sharpness is more important. Have you had a chance to compare the two?

Not paying 3x as much for 24-70 f2.8, going with the 24-105 f4 instead. hlrie: the 24-70 does have an advantage at 24mm but at 70mm the 24-105 beats it. It wasn't an easy decision, but then the price difference made it easier. And for a 1st gen 24-70 f2.8, its lack of IS compared to the 24-105 nullifies the one stop advantage in my book.

You don't really need image stabilization at that range btw but hey whatever you like. My opinion stands. 24-70 is a far superior lens. And in camera equipment you get what you pay for.

every time I've gone with a non-2.8 lens when the 2.8 lens was available, I end up buying the crappier lens and then the better lens.

ditto... well, I still bought a 17-35, 15-30, 12-24 that were all subpar... but after that.
though the 15-30 and 12-24 are sort of in a world of their own.

Have either of you ever dabbled in 3rd party lenses or do you stick to the make of your camera (Nikon)?

Haven't used my 12-24 in ages. Might just sell it. The chromatic aborations on F4 lenses make me nuts.
No I haven't bought any 3rd party lenses. If I was going to I would stick with Sigma though. They did just come out with a 1.8 zoom that made me think about it. But....

I'm not just buying random crap, I've actually been shooting a lot in different conditions, just haven't bothered posting the results online.


^flash on the left shows the built in slide-out diffuser and bounce card. Just wondering if you think there's any benefit to getting a slide-on diffuser to cut down harsh light. Not sure if tweaking the output settings on the speedlite is enough to avoid the harsh contrast I'm getting even with the built-in.

that piece of plastic is to make the light cover a larger area for wider lenses
The bounce card is junk. Just get a diffuser dome. You can get them for cheap. I think I got 3 of them for my sb-900 after I lost the original for $10. The original piece is $17 ea.

Yeah, I could cut a solo cup but I was asking about the benefit of a diffuser, not a bounce card



toggletoggle post by hlrie at Jan 7,2014 12:19pm
Those built in bounce cards are only supposed to put a catch light in someone's eyes and the panel is dumb as well. They are useless and I wish they didn't come on flashes. They have zero to do with diffusion.

IMO you should keep and use a piece of gear for a minimum of one year and use it constantly before you upgrade anything.

As far as bags go, there are just tons. I have a Lowepro trekker but it's discontinued, at least the model I have. I never liked the weird opening thing on some bags. Like the flipside or the fastpacks in Lowepro. Get a cheap used one off of Adorama then not much of a loss if you don't love it. I have gotten bags for $40 off there in perfect condition just so I could see if I liked it before I spent 100's.
