Hey Gang - I found a Business Card Holder that hangs on Bulletin Boards

Holds 40 Cards and great price - 12 pk for $9.99

Amazon carries them for cheaper - 12 pk for $6.24

http://www.amazon.com …olders-pack/dp/B00132CLRO (external link)

or get a 5pk for $5.00 from Vistaprint.

I'll get a 5pk for now

Cheers!

Definitely a step up from the tear offs.

Sadly my photography just costs me money, I don't make any :)

For those of you who have lost your 0 and are now in the 6D club, are all points on that AF cross type? Canon's first specs were really unclear about how the focus points worked. Is it cross type in the "diamond" but single on the two flanking the center, all cross type, just the center, what?

I understood the question to be more about basic color theory than anything technical.
Here's a quick video intro http://www.youtube.com​/watch?v=4163nHq_KkI (external link)

As for other "tips and tricks" I would suggest looking more into the principals and traditional techniques of all visual arts and how they can be applied to photography. You can find a lot of stuff online.
B and H has some good lectures like this one
https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=OtcD84l9eUw (external link)
(there was a great one I saw a while ago showing techniques carried over from painting to photography but I can't find it now :()

hope this helps.

edit: Found the other video

Thank you both. I was looking for the theory that Kingpagla was talking about, but I appreciate the comment on split toning. Both will be interesting to dig into. Thank you!

oh man..I know filters are looked down upon but I'm so glad I had one on. The firecrackers and confetti and lions with all the little kids running and bumping into me, the filter got a few nicks but the glass is still clean..

How is everyone! :D

Honestly, the AF isn't as good as the 60D for the outer points. :(

The center point of the 6D can focus in nearly complete darkness and is way better for tracking moving subjects, with tons of various settings.

So, outer points worse, center point much better in a lot of ways. There's no free lunch when it comes to Canon's marketing department. :lol:

They really want to push people into the 5D3 for focus performance. Makes sense, as the two cameras can't possibly cost much different to make, yet the 5d3 pulls in $1000+ more.

Ow, sounds like the outer point issue is another 5D2. :(

They're the same. Not an issue for me though, as I only do landscapes. Never even used an outer point with my 60D. :D

That's how I feel, I'm still doing center point AF when I take my 60D. I'm too noob to understand what cross points do anyways, been doing single points all my life. xD

so its a similar af system to the 5d mark II? where the center point is the only real useful focus point?

oh your not a noob :P haha but i am spoiled by all the cross points in the 7d and that is one of the reasons im going to the mark III because i am spoiled with great af and i understand that the mark III makes the 7d's af look like a kids camera so i am drooling with anticipation.

U were in manual mode?

I was in manual mode, but I also tried AV and TV, it was the same.

This is normal. The 60D max flash sync speed is 1/250 for the build in flash. However it can do High Speed Sync but you need a flash compatible with that feature (example: 430ex II, 580ex II, and some third party). In that case you can enable HSS in the camera and flash menus and go higher then 1/250.

Thanks!



Cheers,
Nora
