Photographer, tech head, and extreme sport enthusiast.

I'm an amateur who likes to shoot everything from portraits to landscapes. My favorite venues are half way up a 14k mountain, Ontario in Fall, and the Mediterranean at sunset.

I love talking technology, new equipment, and Canon lenses.

I've never had good luck duct taping my DSLR to a tree.

comment Lens for Nikon D5100 for basketball
A 55-200mm f/1.4-5.6 ED lens? Really? That sounds magical. Please show me where to buy it.

I think what looks cool is Kate Upton. Just a suggestion.

comment Why use JPEG instead of RAW?
@Ferdy - That is a fair opinion, thanks for sharing it. I have personally heard from many D800 portrait photographers users who complain a great deal about the RAW file size. I've heard from others that won't "upgrade" to that model specifically because of how the file sizes will negatively impact their business workflow. If it works well for you, that is great!

comment Why use JPEG instead of RAW?
@Imre - This question is much more focused. That question really only asks about the benefits vs downsides of RAW. A few of the answers do bring up the benefits to shooting JPEG but that seems to come secondary to the primary question. In any case thanks for bringing it up as a related question.

comment Will a 18-140 lens be good for basketball stadium photographs?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about rules of a particular venue. It is very specific to your exact venue(and even event at the venue) and likely will not be of use to any other users.

comment Why use JPEG instead of RAW?
The Canon EOS App doesn't even support RAW transfer to mobile devices. It converts it to a low resolution JPEG.

comment Which camera works best with this film?
What camera works best with a certain film depends on what you are trying to achieve, your artistic vision, your requirements, your budget, your skill, etc. Maybe similar to saying, I have a paintbrush, what canvas should I use it with? Well any canvas that suits your needs and "fits" the brush.
