View Full Version : Pictures of Me (Self Portraits)
Did 5 photos in the studio the other night, I decided to cut all my hair off as well.... a perfect time to take a photo too! Had some fun with them, that's for sure.
What made you decide to cut your hair?
Nice pics man. I like the third with the book and the fourth.
Dude, you cut your hair? That was unexpected. heh
I cut my hair because I was bored with it, I had long hair for almost 6 years straight. I was just tired of the same old hair and it was getting frustrating dealing with it every day, keeping it looking good and such. This is a nice refresher!
Nice shots but REFLEX.... did you see the 1D Mark IV? I think I just died a little inside being as though 5K is out of my price range but MY GOD!
MUST VIEW! ISO 6400 WHAT?!
Saw it yesterday already. The camera is nice, but it's not that exciting to me as I already own a 5D Mark II. I'm a lot more interested in the 1Ds Mark IV (that's with an "s").
The 1D Mark IV is Canon's #2 camera, the 1Ds Mark IV is Canon's #1 camera. And it's something I'd rather own as it's full frame and will have many more features and abilities.
If this is 5K I'd hate to see what the 1Ds would be. Granted it probably won't shoot as fast an FPS. This camera's low light ability looks to out perform the 5D Mark II which was touted for its low light, the ISO 102K bit is kind of a joke but wow camera is impressive to me. The videographer, sports, and wildlife photogs are gonna jump on this bad boy.
The 1Ds will probably be about 9K or 10K, that's usually how they are. I'm much more interested in those than this one to be honest. High FPS is pretty much meaningless to me, the 1Ds will have high FPS though, but because of resolution and Full Frame is won't be quite as high as the 1D. But they are aimed at different people. The 1D is clearly for sports and photojournalism and nature photography. While the 1Ds is aimed for studio and more people oriented, but really at THAT level of quality and features, it's a true "Do it all" camera.
The noise handling will be a bit better than the 5D Mark II, but what do you expect for a newer camera and $2000 more than the 5D Mark II? I'd expect what they got in there already.
I think video people who want a still camera will probably still want the 5D Mark II though, it has the right balance between price and quality that these people probably want most. But if they can afford more, why not?
Still though, if I could afford it (not for another year, maybe a bit less now) I would skip this one anyway.... and save up double for the 1Ds or something. That just interests me much more.
I think its safe to say I have a job now so I'll be getting my 7D shortly then getting my 5D Mark II just in time for the 24fps update. Then again I'm not sure if I want to wait for the 5D Mark III and just start my glass collection now. It's always good to have two camera bodies for video shoots. AYE I DON'T KNOW REFLEX I DON'T KNOW!!!!! SO MANY TOYS!
If you plan on shooting photos or videos for a living it's always a good idea to have at least two cameras, no doubt. You know on second thought I think I'll start saving up now for the 1D Mark IV (not the ultra super duper expensive 1Ds Mark IV coming later), the 1D Mark IV would allow me to have the best of both worlds.
I'd have a Full Frame Canon 5D Mark II for the portraits and studio work, and then I could have a 1D Mark IV for the wedding ceremonies and the live music work, event work. That sounds like a KILLER combo to me!
I got my first savings already for this, probably 5 or 6 months from now I'll have a 1D Mark IV. Then I'll have two competent camera bodies. And I wouldn't really need any new lenses since I have a 24-70mm 2.8 L, and a 70-200mm 2.8 IS L. I'd be set!
Yeah man it's a sweet camera, especially if you're gonna do Live music events, the lighting won't be ideal, crank that baby up to 3200 or 6400 and shoot video. I was told by Laforet that a lot of photogs are now being asked if they can do video as well. You would certainly be more than capable with those two bodies.
Photojournalists have been turned into videojournalists or camera (video) guys over the last 5-10 years or so now. I have a friend who is a journalist with the CBC here in Canada and he went through the same thing. It's not nearly about images as much as it is video now. So that's cool in a way to have both in one body.
And yes indeed, I'm thinking that I'll have one hell of a full frame camera in the 5DMK2 for it's specific purposes, and then I'll have one hell of a blazingly fast AF system crop body (1.3 crop) for action, journalism style stuff and live music, events.
I'm seriously saving for this camera now. The combination will be unstoppable!!
