    Canon 70-200 L USM with 2x Extender

    2x extenders won't work on f5.6 or slower lenses on crop bodies. 1.4x will work on F4. F8 doesn't allow enough light in for the autofocus system to work. It barely works on 1D 1.3x bodies. Supposedly only the center point will work for AF. I got a (enroute) 200 f2.8 prime that I'm wanting to...

    NAIA SAC Conference Baseball

    Just like I was told for my basketball work. Need to have the action from the front. Backs of peoples' heads are not very interesting. Good sharp stuff with good bokeh otherwise. Colors look good as well. -JD-

    It was late and I had a lot of photo's to go through. I still think a few shots had a bit to much yellow hue and I didn't correct. All shots were with my 30D 1600 ISO f2.0 or f2.2 1/500 using 3400 Kelvin setting. This is my "Oh I wish..." shot. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 7. 8. More on my...

    Tamron vs. Canon f/2.8 zoom bokeh comparison

    Gotta say, its hard to tell at crop. But at 100% A does look a little different. Not sure which one I like, but if I had to pick A looks to be a little clearner for my taste, but it is VERY hard to pick! -JD-

    I loved the Canon 24-70 f/2.8, but....

    I bought the 17-40 L obviously and the choice was between it and the Tamron 17-50mm f2.8. I've seen tests where the Tamron did better than the Canon. But I don't like to buy APS-C only lenses. The tamron is obvously cheaper. I believe it can be had for less than $400 new. -JD-

    Help. 30D AI Focus accuracy, its front focusing.

    I've done some testing and I know the AF on single shot is pretty dead nuts on. Maybe I need some handling tips on how to shoot in AI Servo mode. I'm just trying to be as smooth as possible with my panning. But I still can't get out of my mind when I'm steady and the subject is steady and the AI...

    Help. 30D AI Focus accuracy, its front focusing.

    What I was doing was trying to focus lock on the subect (half pushed shutter release) then as he was moving on the court I would track and then pull the trigger to capture the shots. I was watching the view find and I would notice that if the object was static, the focus would "pop" in and out...

    Help. 30D AI Focus accuracy, its front focusing.

    Last night I was shooting my first basketball game in years. I was using my 30D 85mm f1.8. Shooting either ISO800 or 1600. Shooting between f/2.8 and f/4 at 1/250 or 1/320 I believe. Well when I went to proof (when I got home) the photo and even while I was test shooting (before the game) I...
