Even if that is a heavy crop you had to have been right on top of that bear. Very nice shots.

Regarding EF-S lenses. You know that I have the 18-200 and it is very sharp. Does well compared to the L lenses in sharpness.

Where it does not fare well is Chromatic Aberration (which can be removed in post) micro contrast (that's what makes the L appear sharper, better defined having better colors).

Also, the USM AF is close to magic, although I can't claim that the stepper motor (lesser than the STM) let me down yet...

The other major plus is the constant f2.8 for DOF control. I shoot (nearly) wide open for the shallow DOF effect.

Does anyone here know of a good free downloadable Raw filer viewer? Broke my laptop last week and my girlfriends sister wants to see some of my pictures, but she doesn't have any way to view raw files

Irfanview will do it, if you load it as well as the plugins for it...

Irfanview (FREE) allows you to view RAW files, at least CR2s. I can't remember if I had to download any plug-ins to do it but I don't think so.

OK. so that's old news. :o

So I went to a wedding today. The photographer was seated at our table. Go figure! Really nice gal and we chatted quite a bit. This is a total surprise for me cuz I am a total wall flower in social situations.

That's cool.

I was at a birthday party. not a paid gig. just took out my camera anyway to practice with my bracket-demb combination technique. everytime i took a picture, they always want to see it in my LCD. there's this one lady that keep saying "that's a very good picture, your camera is so good." she did it like 5 times 'til my patience cache was full, when she was alone i told her "Don't say that to a photographer, it's an insult." And I was trying to hand her over my camera so she can try. then i joke around to change the topic. lol

That's funny!

I thought about bringing out my camera at the wedding but "Uncle Bob" was already there. ;)

Vinz - I was playing around with using the demb for catch lights but and I was trying to use it as you described but how did you get it to be parallel with the flash?

turn your flash 180 degrees. put the demb on the other side. opposite to the normal position. i'll take a pic later.

I tried so many ways. I couldn't figure it out for the life of me. I'm probably just being dumb.
