it says use only in faster lenses 2.8 or larger. does it bother you using Ef-S with general shooting with different apertures?

does it help in getting better focusing? your thoughts please.

The slowest lens I have is a 2.8, so that speed issue is not a problem for me - and it's my understanding that irrespective of what aperture you're going to shoot at, the camera focuses wide open.

The Ef-S *seems* much crisper in the viewfinder - at least that was my immediate reaction when I swapped them. But the longer the time passes, it's difficult to compare directly as to whether I get better focus - I think I do, and I think it shows the DOF quite a bit better than the standard focusing screen.

But these are both incremental changes - I certainly didn't go "WOW" when I swapped.

I snagged it for $20 - and at that price it was a no brainer. For list price? That's purely a value judgement on your behalf.

It sure is possible, but once you've figured things out, you'll know it's not powerful enough. Hitting F8 at ISO 100 might be impossible. That or your model will sweat and bake in front of you because of the heat.

You sure could use ISO 400~800, but what's the point in a studio? You want crystal clear pictures, not noise. Also, blowing a background out to pure white will be a pain and not very effective. With only two speedlight you'll be able to do 3/4 body shots easily.

Last thing to think of is resale value. Flashes/strobe hold their value and sell quickly. Not so for a set of continous light.

David; you need to realize that photographers were making great portraits with hot lights long before strobes were invented. "Electronic flash, while used by studios as early as the 40's didn't really become popular until the mid 60s. Anyone with knowledge and experience can still use hot lights to do great studio work. Yes, they do have drawbacks but my point to the OP was that they were great for someone just starting out learning to use artificial light.

Since you like photographing the ladies (and do fairly well) I might refer you to my all time glamour idol, Peter Gowland. Here is a link to his site that shows his studio. http://www.petergowlan​d.com/Studio1.html (external link)

If you scroll down to row 5 you will find the following paragraph.

"Peter uses the same portrait lighting technique today which he learned from Hollywood studio photographers, although they use more power. Peter shows here a 500watt key, 150watt "dinki-inky" fill next to the $25 4x5 view camera. Hair light and background lights are about 100watts. He used a 10" Rapid Symmetrical with an air hose and bulb for exposure time (1/5th second.) He bought this lens for $25."

No strobes here and he was one of the highest ranking photogs of the day.

Next time, you need more ambient light! Clubs are fill with super nice colorful lights, got to show that in the pictures. For reference, I shoot at 1/6, ISO 1600 in clubs. My flash is at 1/16, only used to light the subjects.

I never said that it's not possible using hot lights or that it has never been done. We could compare that to someone starting in photography. Yes a full 35mm film body will be cheaper and yield very great results, lots of all time masters became famous using them. But technology has moved on and now everyone will recommend a DSLR. Yes film still has it's place for some people, I think medium format is still pretty popular. Same goes for hot lights.

This said, a flash is much more useful in my opinion. Just for that I'd recommend a flags over hot lights.

What do you do when you want to shoot something big but your lens isn't wide enough and you can't go backward anymore?

You shoot multiple shoot and you stitch them in post after!

15 pictures shot at 24mm.

I had posted a separate topic, and it was suggested I join the 60D group. I just got my camera on Friday and I have to say - I really like it. Fits right in with my skills and abilities. I had owned a 7D and just never felt comfortable to me (not ergonomics, but the "system") It is a great camera but more than I could use - so, I sold it and got the 60D and couldn't be happier so far. I really like the tilt screen and I am fine with only have the 9 points of focus. I think this camera will be a keeper and perhaps my skills will grow with this one as opposed to growing into the 7D. I really like the Canon menu system, intuitive to me.

Welcome in here, hope you'll like it! Now time to post some shots from it!

But hey 60D users, this thread is getting boring, let's bring more action to it!

That's what happen when you don't knock :eek:
