    Camera people



    I couldnt help but get a kick out of this guy (ok so maybe it'll send me to hell)

    Lens: 70-200 F/4, weight: 24oz
    Total weight of camera: 2.5lbs
    Shutter speeds on that day at ISO 200 f/4: 1/800

    I get a kick out of the freelance shooters near the action at pro sports events. They instinctively sacrifice their bodies to protect the lens when a collision is imminent.

    Hey man, the human body can fix its self. Lenses that cost upwards of $3,000-$6,000 do not!

    Hehe, or else his pictures will be a little dark...

    One of the guys who was officially part of my senior design team (not that he did anything) shows up at the 4 day event we entered the racecar in with an SLR with a big flash and a giant accessory handle so he could grip it the same in portrait shots as in landscapes. I saw him take maybe 10 shots the entire time, never used the flash (but kept it attached), never took a portrait, hardly touched the focusing ring. I almost expected to see him walking around in a khaki cargo vest with a notepad hanging out of one pocket.

    That guy's gonna have a great time when he tries to take a picture that requires that he tilt the camera up or down more than about 3 degrees. I don't get people who don't at least put a 1-way tilt head (like a Bogen 3232) or a small ball head on their monopods.

    Small tangent: I just had a great mental image of an elderly John Zimmerman beating up that guy with his Hulcher.

    So that's what I've been doin' wrong.
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    You should not ridicule that guy. That is a very nice camera/lens combo for the money. Also, you cannot assume he was shooting in bright light and had no use for the monopod.

    I wasnt ridiculeing the guy. His photos may have been great, and his gear should enable him to take amazing photos (i once had that exact setup). But, considering iw as doing the same thing that day i think i can assume he was shooting in bright light and i can assume that hte monopod wasnt needed ;-).

    I dont have a problem with how other people take there photographs...most of the time it just assures me that my job with the paper is still secure

    Monopods are typically used at sporting events for people who have 300 f/2.8 or bigger lenses because they weigh upwards of 12 lbs depending on the lens.

    I just think there are a lot of gadget geeks out there who like to have neat stuff. Just because the 70-200 f/2.8 (which i now think is what lens it is) comes with a neato tripod ring like the 400 f/2.8 (which weighs 11.7 lbs) doesnt mean that it needs to be on a monopod.

    As was stated by another poster earlier, if he happen to want to shoot up or down or even left or right he'd have a harder time doing that when really it isnt needed.

    Is it dark, or is she stoned? Her pupils look pretty big.

    slvoid, I was going to say that was my mom's camera. But hers is a D70 now that I look at it.

    Holy crap that's scary lol.

    Here's a girl I've been chasing for a while now, not much of a chance here heh.


    We've got a nikon/canon thing starting up here, I'm gonna step away from this one, it's bound to get more heated than campy/vs. shimano.

    I remember seeing a lens for sale in Photographer that came with a car* if you bought one.

    * It was a Hyundai, but still.

    Just to clear this up, a Canon EOS-1DS Mark II with a 50mm f/1.2 lens owns your soul, ok thanks.

    Not as much as my Linhof 4x5 or my Mamiya does. Oh, or my Nikon F3P or F4e (w/50/1.2), or for that matter the Deardorff 8x10 that I just sold.

    You may grovel now.
