I did a set photo shoot a little while ago and thought this was a cool shot.

I managed to catch the ball and jugs in flight. The guy you see there is the director of photography for the shot. It was loads of fun. Not sure when the video is going to be released. It stars this guy though:

Ok, this guy really:

Yeah, I'll see about sharing a link to the video once it's posted for those who might be interested n watching it. It's not a very happy ending I can tell you that.

I can't come up with a better place for this question:

I've been using Tinypic for years to host images to post to Applenova. I have no use for online photo hosting otherwise. However, Tinypic is shutting down. Anyone know of a reasonable place to host photos that is still free?

I host my own but Imgur seems pretty popular.

This was for a different thread but I happen to really like how this one turned out.

That is nice! Thank you for sharing. The dynamic range in that is really good. Was it an iPhone shot? Just curious.

Looks like a long exposure, with way too much dynamic range for an iPhone. Could be wrong, but it seems unlikely.

Canon T6s dSLR with a 10-18mm lens, shot at 18mm, 1/8th second exposure at f/14 and ISO 100. Handheld, no tripod.

Those are some steady hands you have there. If I took a shot like that at 1/8s, I think it would have been burly, even with stabilization.

This lens has four stops of image stabilization, so 1/8s was well within this lens' capability for shooting handheld. I've gotten sharp results up to a half-second at super-wide angles.

Canon is advertising *seven* stops of IS on the latest RF bodies when combining their new in-body stabilization with in-lens stabilization. Might have to make to plunge and upgrade to RF later this year.

Been using high end DSLR's (FF) and lenses for years now, but I do have to say that it is easier with wide angel lenses like the 16-35mm F4 VR (I'm a Nikon shooter), but I'm not that good, at least I don't think so.

[edited] Just put the 16-35mm F4 on my D750 for giggles, 1/8s wasn't that hard at all at 16mm. Been so long since I've tried that I forgot. I personally like the effect of shutter speeds slower than 1s for this type of shot, but 1/8th works well enough.

This one, post here years ago, is how I do it, at around 30 seconds.

I need to get out and try some of those. Sadly I've never upgraded my Canon Rebel XT. I keep going back and forth on going mirrorless or another full frame DSLR. I'm fairly certain I'll stick with Canon, but not even requiring that now. At this very moment, my iPhone 11 Pro gets more camera time from me than anything. It feels so dirty to be talking photos like that.

I used a Rebel XT for years. I'm not sure the upgrade is worth it for landscape, but I love the high ISO performance for urban shooting. The tilt/swivel screen with live view is more useful than I expected though.

I'm tentatively thinking about making the jump to full-frame RF this year. My problem is 3 of my 5 lenses are EF-S and replacing them all at once would cost thousands. Until Canon starts releasing lower-end RF lenses I'll probably wait. I need a f/4 wide zoom and ideally an RF replacement for the 24mm pancake.

The 15-35/2.8L looks amazing, but it's $2300 and weighs almost 4x as much as my current 10-18mm. f/2.8 is wasted on me at this focal length—I'd rather not carry around that much extra weight on long hikes.

I don't really want to buy any more EF lenses right now, otherwise I'd just get the 16-40/4L and 70-200/4L and mount them with adapters.

I think my decision will be forced somewhat by how the pandemic plays out over the rest of the year. I'm supposed to fly to Japan for a two-week photography workshop in November. If that happens, I'll probably buy the Canon RP with 24-105/4L kit to dip my toe into full-frame mirrorless, but keep my Rebel for landscape photography until Canon's RF lens lineup catches up. If not, I'll wait till 2021.

For that Japan workshop, the 24-105/4L should make a great walkaround lens, plus I can put my 50/1.8 on with an adapter for low-light shooting. It's all urban and portrait shooting.

Here's another water shot, this time in Fiordland on the south island of New Zealand, also shot handheld:

The only big changes from the XT to modern cameras are dynamic range and high ISO performance, both have leaped a lot since mid 2000s when that camera came out. They've added video and better live view too, but from the point of it being photographic tool not much has changed. The newer Rebels also have better viewfinders, auto focus and stuff as well.

Full frame really isn't that big of a deal, but the marketing departments are working overtime to make you think they are. When I moved to full frame in 2011 it made a big difference, the same cannot be said now. My Father has a modern DX (crop) Nikon camera and it's very good, so close to my full frame cameras (D750/D810) that if I was in your place, I wouldn't bother going full frame. Mirrorless is the way to go if you are upgrading in the next few years, unless you already have a good collection of DSLR lenses. The DSLR lines will slowly be killed off over the next 4-5 years I suspect. That said if you want to have the option to get less expensive high end lenses in the future, as people make the switch, a DSLR isn't a bad choice. I've take advantage of people switching to get some great lenses for half of retail price, and it is in mint condition. Haven't bought a "new" lens or camera in 5 years, no need, because there is so much high quality used stuff out there that people have hardly even used. You just have to be careful who you buy from. I've got most of my stuff used from local camera stores, which is great because it helps local business rather than big online retailers.
