So with Christmas and the new year just around the corner, I was thinking about some of the new gear that Im either hoping for or possibly looking at getting within the new year.
There are only a couple of things that im looking at for myself …
1. Canon 5D Mark II
Yeah i know the 5D Mark III is out but I honestly would just like to have a full frame camera, and the 5D Mark II seems to be selling for a fairly reasonable price. I would like to try the 6D as well just to see which one would fit my needs better.
2. 70-200mm F/2.8
I Currently have a Canon 70-200mm F/4.0 but would like a 2.8 lens. Have been looking at both the Canon and the Sigma lenses and because of price the Sigma has definitely sparked my interest.
3. Carbon Fiber Tripod
This one is hopefully to be ordered very soon. Not sure which one I will buy but im definitely on the lookout. Just want a nice light tripod for travel.
With more and more stuff going into my camera bag I would like the actual bag to be safe and I really like the idea of the PacSafe. Hopefully this will be something that I also pick up fairly soon as I will be doing some travel in the coming months. Looks like a great way to secure the camera bag that you already own.
So what’s on your list? Let me know?
So Canon has the new 6D and Nikon has the new D600. So when you just look at the specs it kinda looks like the Nikon should completely dominate this competition. But is that how it goes down? Watch the video below to see how the two cameras compare.
So I broke my Sigma 17-70 lens. So So Sad. And it was completely my fault. Any ways I have replace it with a Tamron 17-50 lens. Check out my video below to see what I think of the new lens.
So I have tried to do time lapse photography just once and i think it turned out pretty well (ill post the videos below). Their are a few extras that you’ll need to really take good time lapse including tripod and an intervelometer (i sure hope i spelled that right).
Anyways check the article it has a good video in it as well.
And here is my video.
Shooting lightning, the moon, the stars or just about anything at night can be a bit on the difficult side if you don’t know what you are doing. So check out this article. Has some great samples as well.
No one just starts out as a Professional Photographer. Like most things we need to do it to get better, plus we should do that thing with someone who is better at it then us. So being able to be a photographers assistant is sometimes a great experience. Here’s an article that talks about 12 Rules that will help you better prepare and be successful.
Here is a big list of tips from Eric Kim. I may not 100% agree with all of them. But definitely the majority. Great list to keep in your thoughts.
