  • I asked the same question here when I switched brands and used the 70-200 f4 IS for the first time.  It was quite horrifying at first since I thought the lens is defective and is grinding itself ...
  • I tried to use my Canon rebate card to buy a lens from B&H costing more than its rebate value of $400.  I thought the system will allow me to pay the difference  by my credit card.  It did not. ...
  • I get 1200+ shots with 6D and battery life is great.  But, once I was playing with the WiFi and I set the camera to "Never go to sleep" in the settings menu and then forgot about it.  The next day ...
  • These are again another set of wonderful "lifestyle" photos.  They have captured across many aspects of Japanese life beautifully.
  • Replied in The Japanese.
    I studied in Japan and my wife is from Himeji.  As the result we go to Himeji often when we visit there.  That guy is a regular fixture around the castle :-)  :-) Because of nice bokeh I was ...
  • Replied in The Japanese.
    These are such excellent shots.  In particular I like the first one.  I was wondering if the man with dog picture was taken in Himeji city? I appreciate it if you can tell which lenses you used?

    Oh, I see, now it is a religious matter :-)  Just looking or trying another brand is blasphemy and capital sin in this "friendly forum" :-)

  • I am looking for a combination quick release neck and hand strap for my Canon 6D. Tamrac has the N-17 neck strap and N-15 hand strap with compatible quick release latches. I appreciate it if you ...
  • I read mind and let's show off my super natural capabilities :-)  He is asking why there is no 6D + 24-70 F4 IS L lens kit in US.
  • Did the same thing last year and moved to Canon while keeping my Pentax system.  Frankly I don't understand extreme brand loyalty and it is wise to decide and choose the tools that best meets our ...
  • Replied in Piece of Junk.
    I did the same thing.  I had to buy a wide angle zoom and also was not really happy with my K5 focus tracking performance.  Didn't want to buy the 16-50 because of its bad reputation (right or ...
  • Right or wrong, the SDM issue is not good for Ricoh/Pentax.  Lenses like DA*16-50, and DA*50-135 are capable of being driven either by screw drive or SDM.  You see firmware hack to do this and ...
  • Didn't see this posted, so thought to let you know. I had enjoyed work of Benjamin Bjorn, a photographer using Pentax and modest lenses. It was amazing to me how a skillful photographer can use ...
  • Replied in Urban Japan
    Really nice and very well done.  Excellent work, enjoyed looking through them. I imagine finding high photography positions you had was a challenge.
  • Replied in ettl + manual
    Thank you very much for these links.  This is the most comprehensive description I have seen.  I come from a different camera system and Canon's flash behavior was different from what I was ...
  • Replied in Thank you all
    Thank you all for the valuable information all of you provided.  This is a highly sophisticated flash system and I will experiment with various settings to become familiar with various modes and ...
  • I am new to Canon flash system and was wondering if this is its normal behavior. I have a 6D and 580EX II flash. It seems to me when in ETTL mode, the flash always wants to act as a fill flash. Is ...

  • Armando and Marx81, I didn't realize the typo until you mentioned it!  However, you admit my instructions were useful either referring to wifi, or wife :-)
