I vignetted that shot a little just because the framing was garbage and I didn't want to crop... Pretty much the first shot I took with my 5D and Samyang 35

Here is a quick edit i did.

Here is the preset: B&W punch.zip 1k .zip file

Thanks a lot Sean!

Maybe a bit too punchy for me but I'm going to tweak it a little smile.gif I appreciate it!

Can we make this thread fun again? Blackbox, I didn't forget about you, but I did fall into a megasleep last night so I forgot to PM you.

It's alright. I'll wait patiently.

I am going to my best friends wedding next week and the only camera I have is the one on my blackberry. I was thinking about getting a camera for myself, but I am really unsure on what to get. Ideally I am looking for a point and shoot camera, with a maximum budget of 100 GBP / 150 USD. I would like to obviously take good pictures and having good audio would be a plus.

Any ideas or suggestions? What are the best in terms of price/quality etc?

Honestly, just enjoy the wedding. Even with a nice DSLR, shooting a wedding is tricky. Church lighting often sucks, and plus unless you're right in front you'll probably have no clear view of what's going on.

If you're just shooting for fun, use whatever. You'll be hammered anyway.

Did somebody say 'bring the fun back' to this thread? Mmkay!

I've decided two years of service is enough for my i7/920 rig. Gonna build Ivy Bridge. At first I was all sorts of ready to shell out lots of cash for an Asus Sabertooth Z77 board, but I now realize I don't need that much board.

Things I'd like:

ATX (this could be up for debate, I may be willing to put a mini-ATX in my Antec 300 for this). It would be nice to have a little desk space back too... albeit not a whole lot.)
at least two 6.0gb/s SATA ports
at least two USB 3.0 ports
I prefer Asus but would be willing to consider others...

I'm trying to keep this to a decent budget; I'm going to be reusing my Corsair 620HX (I think) power supply and my GTX 470. I'll reuse my optical drives (I have a decent LG Blue Ray drive). I'm removing water cooling from the case and going with a decent quality air cooler. I just bought 12gb of Corasair Vengeance on the cheap so I'm buying an additional stick for ~$20 and will be running 16gb DDR3-1600

I'm picking up a Sandisk Extreme SSD for a boot drive, CS6 and Lightroom 4 because it's down to an acceptable price point for me to invest.

So, recommend me some decent value motherboards. Don't want to go ROG/Maximus, I have no need for it. I also dont want to go ASrock,

Why? They're a hell of a lot better than they used to be -- and cheap.

I accidentally edited your response Sub, very sorry about that sir.

But effectively, you said it yourself -- better than they used to be, and cheap... I have had bad luck with ASrock in the past. Doesn't mean they don't deserve another shot, but I dont want it to be with this build I guess.
