  • Okay all you 's army adopter' posters, your Penzance for spending all that cash on yoursSelves just before Xmas is that you have to come back and post sample images.  I'm holding back until I see ...
  • Try Cameraclinic in Shoreline.
  • Thanks,  hadn't thought about the card write speed.  I'm shooting again this weekend (albeit not with the 400mm2.8, unfortunately), so maybe we'll get a better sense then.
  • They didn't mean you can't hand hold the lens, just that you have to have one hand on the lens barrel.  Two hands on the camera, in addition to being shaky, risks damage to your camera.  I believe ...
  • This was the lighter MkII, but I wouldn't call it light.  I used a monopod, with intermittent hand-held if I had to move around.  I had the ISO at 800 so the shutter speeds were fast enough to get ...
  • Created discussions Question on 400mm2.8
    Last weekend I rented a Canon 400mmf2.8II.  GREAT LENS - incredibly sharp as I shot my son's crew regatta under less than bright lighting. More often than I'd ever experienced before, the camera ...
  • I dropped a 10-22mm  and had a similar image experience.  Canon said an internal element had slipped out of alignment.  I interpreted this as meaning the lens planes were no longer parallel to ...
  • Thanks, this is all very helpful..
  • My son is rowing in a regatta next weekend and I'm looking to rent a 500mm (or maybe the 400mm2.8).  I'm hoping for advice to move up the learning curve as, since it's a rental, I won't have a lot ...

    My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting South Africa, Zambia/Zimbabwe and Botswana.  A spectacularly beautiful part of the world. As for photo lessons, the prime lessons were:  1. shoot faster ...

  • After two+ years of loading SD cards from my Canon 60D into my PC for downloading/editing, suddenly my computer won't read them. I get a message asking if I want to format the card (which I don't, ...
  • Thanks, Comparing it to previous results from this lens it is obvious - sometimes just need a little reinforcement to take the repair plunge.  It's off to Canon Service for this puppy!!
  • Created photos Dropped my 10-22mm
    A couple of weeks ago I dropped my 10--22mm - HARD!  At the time I checked if the auto-focus worked (it did) and just put it away.  below is the first image since then.  These lenses have some ...
  • The 24-105 was my first L-series lens and I couldn't believe the upgrade from the kit lenses I had. Since then I've only bought L-Series lenses (it's hard to go back). That's just it - the 24-105 ...
