Nice shots. I like the panning in #3.

That 35 1.4L is an awesome lens, huh? So sharp! It NEVER used to leave my camera. Still love it.

yes, the 35 1.4L is by far my favorite lens.
Especially on the 5D with it's full frame sensor, as it's sooo sharp, all the way to the edges...... From 14mmL to the 600L, I've had them all and this is still lmy favorite of the bunch.

The #3 shot, isn't panned at all.
It's shot from a car mount, mounted to my brothers A4.
It's a custom set up, mounted to the lower bumper/trunk area.
Then, I prefocused the camera and lined up the cars, in an orientation we can match while driving.
WE drive both cars at the same speed and I line up the photographed car and trigger my camera with a Pocket Wizard remote.

It's totaly hit or miss.
I'd shoot 100 images and 5 would be good and usable.
But, it's a poor mans Shelly Ward rig.

Yes, I need to find the time to get out and shoot some pix of the new 335 for sure.......

I have been using the 35 1.4L on my 20D to achieve a "normal" focal length on the 1.6x crop body. I have been salivating over the 5D, but am waiting to pull the trigger to make sure nothing major is announced in the beginning of March.

Do you have any pics of your car rig? I love the effect of a rig shot. I have wanted to try this, but am always nervous hanging my camera and good glass off of a moving car with suction cups.

Thanks!

This rig did the side angle shots...

Wow, amazing! Those side mounts are sick!

I'm looking into getting a digital SLR. I might get the Canon D30 with 18/55mm lens. What do you recommend ?

The Canon 30D is a great camera.
You'll learn alot as that camera has alot of capabilities and a 'smooth as butter' CMOS sensor.
My only gripe is the 1.6x crop factor.

You retain the look and feel of a lens, meaning a 35 is still a 35, it just has the angle of view of a 50mm.
Thus, forcing you to be further back to frame the same shot, which alters your bokeh as Fstop/distance is what makes your bokeh.
Owning lenses like the 35 1.4L, 85 1.2L, 135 2.0L, I tend to shoot close to wide open, to get the most extreme, smooth bokeh I can.
So, the concentration is truel on the subject, where I want it.

It is a great camera, I would love it if they made the next version (40D) a 1.3x or FF camera though.... it'd be perfect, for a non 1 series body.

NOOB is right......
kidding........

Bokeh is what you describe the blurry, out of focus-ness behind a subject.
So, if you shoot a head/shoulders protrait of someone.
You get more bokeh at 1.8, than at 8.

Bokeh is smoother on some lenses than others.

It also depens on how many apeture blades a lens has.

Looks like I'll be done with my show sooner than later bro.
My DP got fired, so we're all bailing.
So, we can get a beer and shoot the shiz about photography sooner than later..... we'll talk.....
