  • The Kaiser 206977 push-on lens cap has a manufacturer's suggested list price of $14.99 in the USA and most camera stores will discount the price from the list price. Where do you shop?
  • Your description isn't quite correct. Your tripod does not have a built-in 3-way head. It has a canterleaving center column with a top plate. It does not come with a head. If you remove the top ...
  • Whatever you prefer. But if you remember that Rollei Compendium for the 6000/SLX/SL 66 it also came with a mask to close the opening down when using longer lenses to prevent flare. The ideal hood ...
  • MH620 is the plate that mounts directly to the camera for your head's quick release.
  • Not guessing. Experience, And you can get that experience with any type or make of camera and any make or type of lens. If you are going to use a hood then you want it to do what a hood is ...
  • The purpose of a hood is to block stray light from creating flare at the image plane. Since a 35mm is wider then a 60mm lens the front of the 35mm hood is shaped to block stray rays with the wider ...
  • I told you that the manufacturer's suggested list price is $14.99. So why would you pay $21.00 for a $14.99 item? Contact a camera store, not a big block store, and order the Giottos MH 620 plate.
  • The MH5011 is now discontinued but its plate isn't. You need the MH620 plate which has a list price of $14.99 each. The replacement for the MH5011 head is the new MH5012 head. The difference is ...
  • Your problem is that the MTL 9240B does not accept a quick release plate. The quick release that is mounted onto the head that is on the MTL 9240B is what accepts the QR plate. What is the model ...
  • The Giottos AA1900, AA1903, and so forth are Giottos Rocket Blasters. Not what you quoted. If you check that the model number and the name are correct you should end up with a Rocket Blaster, not a ...
  • I should have also added, that have Giottos embossed into the rubber bulb in very large letters. But this one you linked to does not say Rocket on the offer either.
  • Your reponse above makes absolutely no sense. The Rocket Blaster is only made by Giottos. Other air blowers have other names, the best known being the Hurricane Blower. But only the ones with fins ...
  • Replied in UV Filter 101
    I've been shooting digital since 1988. Started with the Rollei ScanBack for the Rollei 6000 camera system. So I have probably been using digital longer then most. Very few. But within the last few ...
  • Why are you so sure that a thin plastic or rubber tube with a large hole in the front and rear of it will properly protect the lens from that knid of damage? A metal hood? Maybe, This, flexible ...
  • Of course they show the "real" DOF. But that is the DOF at the aperture being used, the point focused on and at the magnification being used by the camera to view the image. Put a 10x loupe of the ...
  • Replied in UV Filter 101
    No, it is critically important that the glass not be stressed within the mount with changes in temperature as this can create problems with the parralism of the glass in the ring to the lens and ...
  • Replied in UV Filter 101
    No, we don't both agree on that. Heliopan is the only German manufacturer of filters that exclusively only uses Schott glass for their glass filters. That means that B+W does not only use Schott ...
  • Replied in UV Filter 101
    You misread what that B+W link says intheir Handbook. "In order to deliver optimal image quality and to safeguard the high demands of lens/camera manu- facturers, B+W glass filters are manufactured ...
  • There was a fellow named Dr. Kaesmann and he developed a process for "Topicalizing" a polarizer by stretching the foils and then edge sealing it in glass. These were sold under the Kaesmann name ...
  • Quite a lot and all are quite different, also.
