Strange, just bought 4 Lexar PRO 16GB 1066x Compact Flash Cards.- 1660MB/s
I Don't want to keep changing cards on my nikon d800 .already have 32gb cards and use them up easily on a cruise . Hence getting a larger card
Meant strange the Similar spec not the Size.
Got my refund from MPB for the Fuji 35/1.4, bought one from Fuji refurb store for the same price. Blessing in disguise in the end I think.
I am buying a Canon EOS M5 mirrorless body only plus EF lens adapter so I can use some of my Canon L lenses on it.
It will mostly live on my Canon 100mm Macro lens or have my 40mm EF pancake lens.
Will be ordering it from HDEW whom I have bought from several times.
Lee Landscape Polariser 105mm is my next buy for sure...
Nice! Love mine..... Used it today on the Dorset coast; setting up on all those pebbles was a bit nerve wracking tho!
I have a couple more vintage Zuiko OM's on the way. I'd love to the 85mm F2 next.
digital: I'd love the 16mm F1.4 and 23mm F2 fuji's.
Well, I watched this thinking they would show some images taken with it. How odd that they didn't! I am going to try an Olympus set up next week. I hope you put some pictures up from using the M5. Thanks .
....There are lots of reviews etc online, some of which include pics.
Personally I ignore other people's picture examples as they reflect the photographer and not their camera gear. I always shoot RAW and I post-process and so my pics probably won't help you much anyway. Also, I exclusively shoot wildlife.
Knowing that the M5 is part of the Canon EOS system, has the same Dual Pixel sensor that I have experienced firsthand in both the 70D and 7D Mark II, has the Digic-7 processor, the AF system matching the D-SLR bodies, and many other features I want, is all enough for me to decide to buy. I am already familiar with the Canon EOS interface and enjoy it.
The lens Adaptor so I can mount my EF lenses arrived on Saturday and the M5 body will arrive on Monday. I don't need any of the EF-M lenses, I am buying the M5 as an additional body for my close-up work.
I will be posting M5 pics on my Flickr page during next week and will not be expecting them to be distinguishable from those taken on my 7D Mark II or previously owned 70D just as there is no distinguishable difference between my images from those two bodies.
I did buy a new CF card but some reason Hermes decides it must have a signature and I missed delivery 3 times.
Well, I look forward to seeing those. My earlier experiences with the M series were very disappointing and I sold it on after a particularly frustrating visit to a Canary Island. If Canon really is taking CSCs seriously now that would be a good thing. I could tell the difference between my 5D3 and 7D2 especially regarding noise.
I was going to Harrison's in Sheffield tomorrow to look at a used 500f4Mk2 ... they haven't had a used one in over a year! What a lazy way to do business (or not) in this case. The colleague I spoke to said that they had asked for the system to be updated...last week!!
....Unfortunately some retailers are quite happy to draw you into their shop (online or otherwise) and don't bother updating their websites regularly enough. It's like estate agents not bothering to remove their sign after the property purchase has been completed and the new owners have moved in!
Jessops have done that to me twice now. I shan't be buying anything from them!
Turning my attention to landscape this month so next purchase will be a filter set. Going for Haida 150mm to fit on 17mm TS - 6 stop ND, 3 stop soft grad and polarizer. Aiming for extreme close up on foreground style images.
I want a tracking mount. I need more milky way in my life
My next photographic purchase is now years away as the afternoon I have bought a Sigma 150-600 C lens.
I'm trying to track down a genuine hood for my Fuji XF 35mm f1.4 without paying through the nose for it
I'm looking at new filter kits. Can't afford a Lee system so looking at SRB
I've got an SRB nd filter. Great value for money, and no issues with colour cast either.
Still a while till I will have the funds, but have now seen the price of the Canon 7D mk ii has well gone up. So I have a choice of two cameras the 80D or go for the Fuji X-T20.
That reassuring. Planning to replace my Kood/Cokin filters over the coming months.
Bought a Elinchrome D-lite RX2 today for a studio shoot next month, cheap and cheerful but it looks like it'll do the job and I can use it with my speedlites to trigger it wireless too.
Total turn around, as my 70D is a pain when going to town and as the 7D mkii is out. I am glad to say that my next camera is going to be the Fuji X-T20 in silver and a 16-50mm lens After my XF1 broke, I knew one day I would get another Fuji
Imac 5K coming today and I've got gas for a Sony RX10 dam
Fuji X100 F
I would like to upgrade my ageing 5D Mark 2. The Canon body prices are extortionate atm though.
And then this happened....
It wasn't in my plans but I've been struggling in low light a bit on my current project, so I had a look and I found this with a very low shutter count for a verrry good price. I should be able to get my money back on it once done, unless I like it and finally say goodbye to my D700!
I'm struggling to persuade myself I don't need/want a 5d4....... Also trying to persuade her that she needs my 5d3.
Thinking about D600 or D700 but also D7100. I am now tempted to get a D700 and a D7100 together.
Just bought a Godox AD600 and softbox, spur of the moment seeing the missus is away for the weekend
And as a update I got my 1Dmkiv
More studio stuff.
Looks like a Sigma 180mm lens for macro work, will be next buy for me..
Lee Filters but im still on the fence. Lightroom grad vs physical grad is still making me ponder. I think I will however purchase the stoppers and the polariser if nothing else.
I am not expert in the Lee v LR argument but I do prefer to use the filters on camera when I can. It seems to enable me to do more PP should I need to. I am sure more seasoned outdoor photographers will chime in on this though.
Having already bought a Canon 135mm f2 this month I have been left on my own this weekend and ending up ordering a bit more. Well my Godox Ad600 came yesterday and my Bowen's fit softbox came today after ordering a speedlite fit one by mistake
Now I realise I need a sturdier light stand for the 600 as the stands I use for my speedlites bend if I raise the unit too high
Oh and think I need some way of transporting the Ad600, any recommendations?
