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

Recommended Posts

I use my prime lenses far more then i use my 24-105 zoom and when i use my zoom i find my focal length of liking and keep it there for the shot.

 

trying to zoom and pull focus and keep steady while hand held is a joke too.

 

 

just picked up the Rode Video mic.

Exactly! That's why I am just going to build a nice prime collection.

primes are the way to go as long as you have the time and patience, the only advantage a zoom has over a prime is convenience, primes rule everything else. im not saying its not a good idea to get a zoom, theres times when their nice to have. ive got 6 primes ranging from 8mm-58mm which i use 95% of the time, when i need more reach i put on the 70-210, i feel its a good system.

if its the 3/2 version, its much cheaper than on BH

Yep, it's the 3:2 version for the t2i. I'm really happy with it, quality build.

the bower adapter works like a charm as well as the fd lenses. if your not buying lenses for a fd mount camera and just for your dlsr then i would suggest getting eos mount lenses though. i do know another guy who does a lot of shoots with his 5dmkii and uses nikon 35mm lenses though.

My Jag35 stuff should arrive today, so hyped.

 

In other news....

 

I love my LCDVF, I love the microfibre cushion, I love the way it attaches to the body of my 7D, I love the fact that it costs less than half the price of the Z-finder.

 

But I hated it when Zacuto brought out the Z-finder V3, with it's anti-fog coating. I hated watching the video of Steve Weiss at NAB breathing on the eye piece and not seeing a single drop on condensation. I hated the fact that I felt an urge to spend more money on a stupidly expensive viewfinder for this simple function.

 

Then a few weeks ago I found this. I got in contact with a mate who owns a Z-finder V2 and it turns out both the LCDVF and Z-finder share the same diameter eye piece! I ordered one the otherday (via my bro in the US), so it should be here soon. Fingers crossed it's fully compatible!

That reminds me, Tim, when are you going to put up the 7D vs the Hvx comparison.
