It Christmas/Hanukah time, and many of us know that camera gear could have been under the tree or given to you, so let's see what everyone has acquired!
I wasn't really expecting anything this year, but my dad somehow pulled a Sigma 10-20mm 4-5.6 out of his ass, and I admittedly screamed like a little girl. One of my best Christmas's ever. I also purchased a new pair of skis a couple weeks ago, making the new year ever so more epic.
A general rule of thumb is to double the frame rate so at 60 fps per second you want atleast 1/120. Most people use an even higher shutter speep for skiing like 240 ishh.

Progress isn't made by early risers. It's made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something.
haha you have to be kidding? you realize most people in world receive nothing close to that much value for christmas right? (including most kids in the US). You really can't just play it off like "800 isn't that much when it's split." That's a lot of fucking money to spend on a kid that isn't even grateful. get learned
to everyone else getting insane presents, appreciate them because it is absolutely silly what christmas has become
who the hell r u to say he's not grateful for his lens? I would be ecstatic if i opened that! And I'd say I got about $600 worth of stuff. I'm very grateful for it all. I'd say its the norm for my area (no im not in some rich white neighborhood, just upstate ny)

If you tuck from here, you probably won't overshoot it. Buuutttt I wouldn't go from here, cause you'll probably overshoot it.
A lot of people say that it's pointless for a crop sensor but I actuall love it. It has the range of ~24-60 which is in my opinion a great standard range. Fast, sharp, and low distortion on a crop. Also nice because I can keep it if I every switch to full frame. Best part is the all metal build and internal focusing. I'd recommend it highly for crop or full frame if you find a good deal on the mark one version, which should run about $800-$950 on the used market in good conditin
I got a ton of accessories! Cheap LCDVF, memory cards, snow cover for my 60D, filters, and then a sick book on dslr shooting, i recommend it to everyone. I read it for like 2 hours straight last night its super interesting.
kids like you suck so bad. you just sound like a jealous bitch, grow the fuck up.
first of all, what did he say that doesn't make him sound grateful? he sounds incredibly stoked to have that lens.
second, i'm sure he realizes many people don't receive such good presents. but some people do, and that's the way it is.
third, for a lot of middle to upper class US families, 800 split up isn't THAT much. could easily be less than $100 per person.
fourth, just because a kid gets a lot of presents doesn't mean he isn't grateful. so many people seem to think that just because a kid's family gets him cool things means he takes all of it for granted. there are plenty of kids out there who are EXTREMELY lucky to have families that can support their hobbies and they are incredibly grateful for that. i would consider myself to be one of those kids. and every time i shoot, i'm reminded how lucky i am that my parents are willing and able to support my filmmaking, because i would definitely not be where i am today without all their help.
and i don't know why you think kids getting huge presents for christmas is a new thing. if parents have money, they tend to use it to buy their family nice things. after all, isn't that the whole point of making money? so you can provide for your family and make them happy? that's the way it always has been, and the way it always will be. don't be so quick to chastise a kid just because they received a nice present, especially when they sounded incredibly happy about it and not ungrateful in any way.
sorry to rant about it, but i hear the same shit every year and it gets old.
