Why are Tokina 11-16 2.8 Nikon mount lenses becoming so hard to find and the prices spiking?


Could be because of the disaster in Japan. A bunch of Camera manufacturing plants got hit, including nikon and canon.

all I do is sip espressos and listen to AZ -mrelllis.tumblr.com

Do you really need the video and better iso performance. ? If so go with the t2i. Flash you can always get a cheap yongnuo eBay flash for now.


considering the t2i now, but the yongnuo ebay flash.. how does it compare to a speedlite other than the price difference?

To make that 3D shake effect take one photo, then take ones about 3/4 of an inch to whichever direction you want it to go to. it works because thats about the space between each of our eyes.

a lot of camera companies have been hit from the disasters in japan so stocks have been low and with the currency rates prices are hiking up as well. good time to sell.

also i have the yongnuo yn560. replica of the 580ex ii. same shape, awesome build quality and very powerful with quick recycling times. ive had it for months and have easily over 1000 shots with it. i highly recommend it. make sure you get the version with the metal foot mount though. main difference is that there is no e-ttl. but i prefer that because it'll force you to learn to actually use the flash manually and how to learn to expose properly with flash.

I have a Nikon 17-55 2.8 lens which is quite wide, but I want something wider.

Do you think the Tokina 11-16 would capture images too similar to the images I get with the lens all the way open at 17?

Would it be smarter to pick up the Fisheye 10.5?

This is all the way pulled back at 17 on the 17-55, I want it to be wider tho still.







It will be all up close concert and personal photography.

It all depends if you want the barrel distortion from the fisheye. The 11-16 will give a small amount of barrel distortion but is obviously wider then the 17-55. It's all preference, I personally like the fisheye, but you would need to get quite close to make video look good. I would get the 11-16 if I was in your position and it's also a bit cheaper then the fisheye.

12-24 is the GOAT

10.5 fisheye or fucking die koor.
Since the D7000 is a DX I believe? the 10.5, otherwise if you are using any sort of full frame camera which I cannot remember, 16mm Fisheye.

Guys I'm trying to get into club photography. I've been checking that Yonguo yn560...Do you guys think that will do the job? I've never used an external flash before btw.

I'm trying to sell my D70 body and some of my lenses to upgrade. As of now I want to get a D200, but I want some 2nd opinions. Should I stick with what I have, Sell and get D200, or sell and get something else?

Oh and if it matters, I want to upgrade to the D200 because it is really not much more than what I need, and it is in my price range.

Just got myself a 50mm 1.8 for my t3i, excited to put this baby to action!
Apr 25, 2011 @ 13:29
OK, I know nothing about cameras so I need some help.

What is a good DSLR and lense to start with? Trying to get a gift for someone. No film. Has to be digital to start with.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Canon t2i has dropped in price after the t3i came out. But the t2i is definitely a good starter camera. Same goes for nikon d90. If you don't want to spend that kind of money, the d3000 from Nikon or Canons 1000d are pretty decent too!

On another note; just picked up this pretty little thing:

Apr 26, 2011 @ 12:39
Out of the point and shoots, which one has the best video capability on it? Some one told me the leica dlux 5, others told me to just save up and get the new fujifilm x100

Any advice?

- Btw, I owned a Canon s95 and I got rid of it cause I hated how the white looked so bright so I would like suggestions on something that isnt this

I'm a Canon fan and I think any of the rebels would be good to start off with. I personally like the T2i a lot, although I do have the 7D. Definitely get the Canon 50mm f1.8 lens for about $100. It is a great lens for a bargain price.

You sure you didn't just over expose? It's quite usual to shoot at -1/3 exposure with the s95. I do this, and i've never been bothered with the whites...

what's a good lens to get for a nikon after playing around with the 18-55 kit lens?
will primarily be using for portraits/stills, and video.

Portraits and stuff, I'd say a 35 or 50mm. I love my 35mm haha!

yeah i was thinking that would be my next move, any suggestions on specific lenses?
Apr 27, 2011 @ 22:33
Like brands and aperture? Since you shoot Nikon just get Nikon's 35mm or 50mm f/1.8, if you got the dough then the f/1.4 obv.

I didnt like it, any advice for another camera?

What about the Panasonic LX5?
May 01, 2011 @ 11:40
I was actually looking at that one, thats the one thats practically a Leica Dlux 5 correct?
May 01, 2011 @ 12:53
Just curious what kind of camera doesn't it take to get this kind of quality in a video? Also what are the fps used when it was edited.

Probably a 5D Mark II, but you could probably get that quality with a 7D/T2i, most people would make it 24fps
