thanks anti-hero, yeah im shooting with a t3i, but has anyone used a sigma 30mm 1.4? i was planning on getting a 50mm 1.4 but since i have a crop camera i think it would be better to get a 30mm 1.4? ill be using it for general uses, portraits/walking around.

Saw this Sigma 30mm review the other day might help.

Paper roll background try Camera supplies or ebay, d.i.y
approach try an art shop or printing firm google might be
more help for something you area.

I'm leaning more towards the 60D gonna try test one out
next week looking at body only with Canon 35mm F2 or
50mm F1.8.

<p>if you’re not seeking any of the features that dslr’s offers, you should just stick to point and shoots, it’ll save you from breaking the bank and the initial complications that come with a DSLR. testing out a bunch from a local electronics store is the best way to get your answer. i am familiar with the Canon G-Series though, they are compact point and shoots that have similiar qualites and controls of a DSLR. The G-Series are definitely not a turn in the wrong direction for you.</p>

<p>yeah i am not into those photography and all that, i just want my pics to look sharp and clear. mostly just taking pics of me showing of my clothes, shoes and all that, so the g seriesis my best bet?</p>


PnS camera have come a long way from what they use to be. If the G-series isn't in your budget or you just want to save some money, anything from the Canon Powershot line, the Nikon CoolPix, or even the Sony Cyber-shot line up will work perfectly fine for fit pictures. Just make sure you do a little post editing to get the look you want.

50 is definitely on the longer end. I have a sigma 30 1.4 and it's been my main lens for everything. excellent lens.

If it helps I have a 50 1.2L. I honestly think that this is one of the best lengths for portraits, but I find myself needing a wider angle sometimes. I think if you were to get one of the two get the 50 1.4. The 30 1.4 from sigma is not of the best lenses, but the closest you can get to a true 50mm on a crop. The 50 1.4 though is SHARP and even though it is a longer focal length if you don't mind moving a little farther away from your subject you will find this lens to your liking. But If you can try them out do so!

Edit: From seeing pictures of both lenses the 50 1.4 is WAY sharper if that's a factor.

thanks for the feedback guys, i'm gonna do a little more reading up on both lenses, i'm really leaning toward the 30mm due to the focal length. Although the 50mm 1.4 is cheaper (but not by that much) .
Oct 25, 2011 @ 03:12
I don't believe the 50 is WAY sharper than the 30, though every lens is different regardless the same make. Another thing to worry about with the 50 1.4 is that it uses Canon's old clutch focus motorsystem. Tends to break down after awhile.

I figured yall would be able to help me out with this....

I am looking for a fish eye lense for my canon t3i. I dont want to buy one of the $400 extra lens tho. I see the make like fish eye attachment lens that run $50-100.

Just seeing if anyone had bought one before or has any advice in general…..thanks!!
Oct 29, 2011 @ 20:19
OK just wondering if there is a reason why I shouldn't get a 7D? I would get the 5D MK II but I would rather wait till the 5D MK III comes out. I'm upgrading from a t3i, so just wondering if I shouldn't do it for any reason.

Rokinon 8mm Fisheye is good. No manual focus, but at that mm you won't be focusing much. $290, i've seen used on CL and EBAY for $250. Check you youtube for sample video.

<p>Do anybody know where to get those big rolls of paper, that you can unroll and use as a background?</p>


Muslim backdrops? try amazon / CL. A cheap kit runs you $150ish because you need a frame to prop it up

Does anyone own the canon 35mm f2. Would you recommend it? Over the 50mm f1.8?
Its 3 times the Price of the 50 is it worth it? I mainly want a small light everyday starter lense.
It will be my only lense for a while with my 60D.

the t3i/t2i/60D/7D all have the exact same sensor and none of them are full frame. the only reason to upgrade to the 7D is if you realllly need like 19 AF points. Other than that, they all take the same quality pictures.

the 50 and 35 are two different lengths. the 50 is more of a short portrait on your 60D. the 35 is a standard. I say keep the 50mm for your portrait work and save for the 35mm as your all around small light starter lens.

I used the sigma 30mm 1.4 and it was a great. The canon 35mm f/2 is lighter and i hear isn't that bad of a lens for price.
Nov 01, 2011 @ 05:20
should i get the canon g12 or the fijifilm x10?

Finally pulled the trigger on the sigma 30mm, thanks to everyone who helped me out. I just hope i get a good copy, should i send it in to be calibrated regardless?

I just ordered a 5DMK2 today and I'm super excited. Who else here has one or is full frame on Canon?

Nov 05, 2011 @ 20:12
I am using the 5Dmk2, I absolutely love the full frame sensor. I upgraded from the 7D, and I won't ever go back to crop sesnors at this rate.

Nov 05, 2011 @ 20:43
I would love one, but decided that I would get a 7D deal with it, and once the 5D MK III comes out then sell the 7D and get that, or sell the 7D before the 7D II comes out (which ever comes first).

jacobskoglund.com

Nov 05, 2011 @ 23:13
good plan. I do miss my 19 Af points, and the 7D is actually shaped better ergonomically. My 5D just doesn't fit right in my hands lol. I suppose that's all I can nitpick.

*edit: and we are likely to see an updated 1x series camera before the 5D or 7D update.

flickr.com/leavetownrightnow/

Nov 05, 2011 @ 23:48
Yeah, I just hope that the 7D is the last to be updated. But I get the feeling canon is going to have a great year. They are also releasing a new line of their cameras dedicated to video .

http://www.photoclubalpha.com/2011/11/04/canon-kyboshes-the-competition-full-cinema-system/

Thats the link to that. Quality is going to be amazing and the recording will be at 4k which is cinema quality. Believe it or not though that 50 is of the cheapest ones canon will launch - the most expensive @ $43,000 if I read correctly.

But rumor has it Canon will also be announcing several more products in the Spring time, or early 2012 (I think 3 new lenses, and 1-2 more cameras).

jacobskoglund.com

Nov 06, 2011 @ 02:50
the new lenses will likely be updates to older obsolete lens. such as the 50 1.8 II.

and the 7D will be last, as it is one of the most up to date body.

Noob question but I have a 28-135 3.5-5.6

I do realize a 17-55 or 24-70 2.8L would be a bit wider but are they significantly sharper when compared to my 28-135 kit lens?

.

Nov 07, 2011 @ 20:40
I find my kit lens to be pretty sharp. I'm unsure of the 17-55 but for 1/10th of the price if you want a lens that just cant go up to 2.8, get the 18-55. But the 24-70 is regarded as one of the sharpest zoom lenses around. It pretty much beats all the ones you just said. If you are going to spend the money I would say pay the extra money and get the 24-70L. I owned it for 3 days (I personally didn't like it), but it was one hell of a sharp lens. I would love to get it again but I just don't have the money for it.
