    OK, so i said over and over that I'll never shoot digital. I'm a film guy as you well know. I prefer LF over digital.

    However, all that being said, I'm happy to report that I've committed the 'mortal sin' and acquired a brand spankin' new Canon 5D with vertical grip. Now I'll have to say that I shoot digital as well...:D

    Waiting for the 5D to arrive...

    are you just using the kit lens or do you have some canon lenses you can use for the 5D?
     
  5. The thing to remember about digital is that when you point the camera at the sky, you affect the weather. Just fyi.

    Welcome to the other side, Mitca.


    Just remember you can always enjoy both film and digital.

    Yes this is actually true! There's PROOF! And not only that but the government spies on you through the camera's GPS and microphone!

    If you take the battery out when you're not using it they won't be able to track you.

    actually they have one of those tiny everlasting batteries - the sort in computers that run in the background. Each time you use the camera the camera battery charges up the secret battery - so even with it off they can still track you!

    the only safe thing - that I did - is to take apart your camera and remove the offending parts - and then reassemble and hack the camera to make it think its still in there and thus work.
    If you google it you can find guides - though I would say using a hammer to open the camera can have some side effects - reconstruction time is definatly long!

    I already have the 50/1.8, the 28-135 IS USM and the 400/5.6 APO Sigma. Looking at some L in the future.
