Yes I told my cycling friend she needed to come and do that for me :-) Actually she'll be on holiday in a few weeks we could try it then.

Or get yourself a carbon fiber monopod. My tripod can loose one of it legs and become a monopod. And use a ballhead so you can position your camera easily. Nowadays most of the monopod have strap on it, you can hook it on your shoulder a waist or use it as your hiking stick.

I've been thinking about a monopod for ages but keep getting mixed advice from people, both in person and on forums. I have a manfrotto ball head so guess I just need to make the screw size is compatible with whatever I buy.

yes, it could be done this way or you can duplicate the image and add the camera raw filter, then use automask in brush settings and desharpen/denoise the image;-)a
AF speed and reliability of 70D is actually very similiar to highend cameras, it´s the main reason to upgrade from rebels.


I don't know if this is something along the lines you mean, or whether I have misinterpreted, or not enough knowledge to actually do it :-)

Really like that second Mark, and love the contrast of styles in your first ebatatoo, and the contrast between your subjects.

I have a 70D question. What would y'all think is a good price for a used 70D + 18-135 combo worth with approx 2-3K shutter count.

I'd say at least $1,000, the 70D just came out and I'm sure it would still be under warranty if the original owner didn't already register it with Canon.

Today B&H shows the 70D with the 18-135 STM for $1294.

I wouldn't pay more than 80% of this ($1035) and things are going south from there...

Interstingly, B&H sell the body only more expensive than the body with the nifty! Go figure...

Thanks I ended up with a used (2 mo old) 70D w/ 18-135, 2 extra batteries and extra charger for 1050. I think I got a deal there.

Bought a second hand Tamron 90 f/2.8 non vc a few weeks ago, and had a lot of trouble with manual focus - my eyes are getting a bit old. Anyway had a play today - unfortunately didn't note which are manual or auto, but I think all these manual. Still not getting it spot on but better with live view.

I really like this and wish I had the foresight to play more with it:

Backcountry snowboarding is getting into full swing! The 70D and 18-135 STM is a great combo for the landscape and action shots.

I made few AF test and found out that AF zone is pretty tricky to handle sometimes, especially at lower distance from target, AF lock isn´t precise as much as single point AF.
Have anyone else noticed this behaviour?

IMO, you got a very good deal. I just ordered a new 70D (body only) for a total cost of $1,007 (including the 4% Amazon store credit). So you got the lens, extra batteries, and charger basically for free. Enjoy your new camera!
