What Did You Do To/ Get For Your Camera Today?

Recommended Posts

Will the glass make any difference in the adapter, since the 5Dmkii is full frame and the T2i isnt?

 

 

i dont think so. the glass is there to give you infinity focus. it should be the same for the t2i, 7d, 5dmkii, and any other eos mount camera=]

 

used it again at the torey pudwill shoe release the other night and man i love having fd lenses and they work really well on the eos too=]

Just ordered my T2i, 1500mAH battery, and 16 GB Class 6 card.

 

Super soon: FD to EOS adapter.

Later: Rode VideoMic and LCDVF 3:2

The 18-55 kit. I thought about getting 50mm 1.8, but I already have that in FD... My friends gonna sell me a 55-200 IS for 40 dollars, cause he doesn't use it or know how to anyway.

Just shy of £750, pretty good I think!

 

I didn't get 20% off, but he gave me rush service shipping for free. I was stoked on that, so should get it before the music video I've gotta shoot on the 21st.

I've also been working on making an audio adaptor for the Rode Video Mic to hijack the AGC. The only problem is I didn't know which terminal was which on the connectors so it's a guesing game right now.

 

 

thats sick. and a good deal too. cant wait for the review

Prototype handle.

I see the need for it to be shorter, have a hot shoe connector, and better weight. Any other suggestions?

Did you take into account the import tax Tim? I had to pay £100 for my death lens for the dvx which was insured at £400, that was with fedex.

 

and i had to pay £90 for something that was £250 when i brought my baby death and lowepro from BH (yearrrssss ago) and that was with UPS.

thats an awesome deal man those lenses usually sell for triple that, and ya, like any other lens manufacturer, not everything they made is amazing, but the majority of there stuff ( especially the SMC stuff ) really is amazing, as far as their long reach primes go, shits awesome i dont know what makes you think their meh, the 85mm, 105mm, and 135mm are all ridiculous good.

Are there any big cons to these lenses, because from seeing all of this I am extremely interested in getting a bunch.
