  • Just a heads up but buying a kit lens separate from the body is the expensive way to buy it. A quick check on B & H shows the following:- 70D body with EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM $1149.00 70D Body ...
  • Probably that combined with the small body size of the SL1. A quick check with my 350D (a very similar size to the SL1) indicates the on-board flash is about 1cm lower than on my 7D relative to the ...
  • Sorry I'm probably making it more difficult than it should be. I was trying to enable the OP to see what she would see with the RX100 while using her TZ30. The Sony has a zoom ratio of 3.6x i.e. it ...
  • Depending on which version of DPP you are using the following may be what you're looking for In version 3.x.x there are the tone curve assist buttons on the RGB tab of the Tool palette. In Version ...
  • I can't vouch for the pair that Aberaeron pointed you at but I bought an EXpro power plus battery for my Fuji X10 when I bought it 2 years ago and it has performed identically to the original battery.
  • Replied in WOOP! WOOP!
    This is the set I use:- http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007CTFWLO?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00 Not too expensive and work well with the EF 50mm f/1.8 Mk II. It is worth ...

    That's evil :-) :-) Still could have been worse, she might have crawled even further in and stung something far more sensitive!!! Ian
  • Replied in WOOP! WOOP!
    Yep the more expensive automatic versions allow auto-focus and more importantly control over aperture (vital for depth of field control). I see your plan is to get a 50mm and a 60mm Macro the 50 ...
  • Replied in WOOP! WOOP!
    I know we've talked about using extension tubes with the EF 50mm f/1.8 Mk II so I thought I'd knock up a couple of images on my desktop to show you what you can do with the combination. First of ...

    Hey great start :-) Now you can start experimenting. As you've got plenty of light stop the lens down to f/6.3 which will bring the shutter speed down to about 1/600th which should still freeze the ...
  • Hmmm... As others have suggested shoot RAW + jpeg with the camera set for monochrome, that will give you the B & W jpeg images you're looking for. Then use DPP to process the RAW file with one of ...
  • I think you'll find that's a constant maximum f/2.8 aperture across the full zoom range (a big plus) rather than a fixed aperture. Given the fact one of the points dpReview list in their review is ...
  • Definitely won't fit. The TZ30 takes a DMW-BCG10 lithium ion battery pack like this:- Image courtesy of Amazon.com The RX100 takes a NP_BX1 Lithium Ion Battery pack like this:- Image courtesy of ...
  • You're welcome. There are always trade-offs it's a case of what you are willing to accept. You really want to start thinking in terms of equivalent mm rather than zoom ratios a 24-70m lens and a ...
  • It was a couple of years ago when a Spanish photographer was accused of hiring a captive wolf for a picture which won the UK's Natural History Museum Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition ...
  • Be very carful comparing lenses by zoom value. Zoom figure quoted are the longest focal length divided by the shortest focal length. What this figure doesn't tell you is what you can see in the image.
  • Replied in Lens motor
    Incorrect. All Canon lenses with ultrasonic motors are clearly marked USM. Checking:- Here for the 18-55 IS Mk II Here for the 55-250 IS Mk II Here for the 50 f/1.8 Mk II Indicate all three lenses ...
  • Hmm... Not sure I agree with the thinking behind this and I would still suggest going with a spare battery. However Sony see to be shifting over to USB charging for their batteries so I'd start by ...
  • Hi Aprille You have a very generous friend (treasure them). The EF-S 18-55 IS is an excellent beginners lens and Canon's kit lenses used to have a bad reputation but they fixed this when they ...
  • Replied in Polarization
    First things first. If an object does not reflect light it appears black not invisible. Light when reflected tends to be reflected mainly in one plane of polarisation therefore a polarising at 90 ...
