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.

comment Tips on getting group shots for family
I would enlist a kid friendly relative to assist you in getting the childrens attention. They can hold rattles or shiny objects to draw the eyes in. It is tough to do this at the same time as taking the picture, so see if anyone is around to help that won't be in the shot!

comment Why are my recovered images only 160x120 pixels?
I think you are right. And as you said in another comment, if you haven't tried PhotoRec - that is the one I have had the best luck with.

Awesome question, wish we had more like this!

comment Can ultra-high ISO ever yield good results?
If you believe that ISO 3200 is poor quality on the D800, I believe you have very high standards. Are you sure that you don't have high ISO noise reduction on in the camera? I wouldn't expect it to look poor until 12,800 or so by my standards.

ISO 2000 might not be good on your camera, but that certainly is not the upper limit of current high end gear. See examples here: dpreview.com/reviews/canon-eos-5d-mark-iii/27

comment how to improve body scape shots?
If you really want to show off ripped abs, veins, muscles - then have them do a bit of working out with heavy weights, become dehydrated, and spray them all over with cooking spray.

comment Why do my photos look like they're painted?
I think it is funny that they even included ISO 6400. It is terrible on this camera.

comment What's the best way to get a photo from Lightroom to another PC for printing?
So you do not have a printer on the machine that has lightroom. Are you asking what is the best method for sending images to a print lab? Where are you planing to print?

comment Can I use my existing Canon lenses on an EF-M camera body?
I think that all but the smallest prime lenses and the new EF-M lenses are going to look silly!

comment How will a Canon EOS M serve as a second/alternative body?
True, the Canon GX1 only has a 20% smaller sensor, but yes it is smaller.

comment How will a Canon EOS M serve as a second/alternative body?
@WarrenYoung - It has a mode dial, but only contains 3 positions, two of which I would rarely use. I would much prefer it to offer the standard scene modes of M, Tv, Av, B, P, etc.

comment How will a Canon EOS M serve as a second/alternative body?
The reality is, the biggest advantage of this camera is its small size. How important is size to my backup camera? It isn't even on my list. I would consider it to be a detriment in this case as the camera is too small to be comfortable for extended use.

comment How will a Canon EOS M serve as a second/alternative body?
If that is the case, I would alter your question to say "...perform as a backup body..." and remove the references to a second body or alternative body. A backup is not the same as a alternative body, at least to me. My iPhone serves as my alternative body, but does not serve as my backup when shooting a wedding. As far as comparing to every camera that exists, I think this question would be more beneficial if you mentioned what your main camera was, a 7D, a 5D, etc. The comparison to full frame against the EOS M and the comparison to a 7D against the EOS M is completely different.
