post #15941 of 29539
wish my tv show work had more money. i keep getting stuck having to take stills while out on video shoots and i would totally rather be running a 2nd camera.

and they make me use a nikon d90 with a 18-55 which is weird to use because everything is backwards lol

I'd say either drop the price or hang onto it for a while, or sign up at Fred Miranda and try it there.

About the lens, I bet someone here at OCN could powder coat it, or via some other method (not sure what the best method of painting would be). Lots of case modders here who are very knowledgeable about such things. And I would think that it would sell for a premium price on POTN very easily, considering the novelty and uniqueness of it.

Someone should paint the Canon 17-55/2.8 to look like an L lens, just to piss everyone off (some 17-55 owners like to put "17-55 f/2.8L in their sigs because they think it's L quality).
Yeah.. I was a bit concerned about the whole price thing.. someone offered an OK price, I came back with a counter offer. If they accept, I'll probably move it at that price; if not, I'll probably pull it. I have found a couple of very nice 5Ds for reasonable prices and it would be awesome to have, but at the same time, I'm wondering if I should just sell my 17-50 on top of it and wait till the 1st of October and grab myself either a refurb 5Dii or a NIB (I keep hearing about new refurbs).

also, the powder coating wouldn't really be the issue. The issue would be the details (the red ring, the focus window, the logos..)

You can do a bit of sharpening, boost saturation and contrast.

Edit colors in post. Play with color saturation, vibrancy, and contrast. Keep in mind though that oversaturation is a very common problem and that overdoing it simply makes your photo look, for lack of a better word, noobish.

Although I think that framing and composition is more integral to a great photo than color saturation.

Also, You might want to have a look at split toning.

Definitely keep saturation down. I cannot stand looking at otherwise good pictures that people ruin by cranking it to 200%.

Screw it, I'm gonna wait for Canon's next FF offering and see what that does for prices... I dont NEED full frame right now, and it's been a workhorse of a camera while I had it (even if I have to re-teach myself how to shoot with it every time I pick it up now since buying the 60D). I might not get quite as much for it if I sell it later, but by the time Canon's new stuff comes out, I should have my annual bonus anyway.

Badly tone mapped HDR with oversaturated colors and more halos than a Church's stained glass windows?

Any interested in a D90? Absolutely perfect condition, LNIB.
