  • Here's my standard list: (1) Extra battery or two (2) Fast memory cards. (3) Case for memory cards (keeps them organized so you don't lose them).  I like a case ...
  • Replied in UV Filter
    It depends on the filter, the lens, your shooting situation and whether you are shooting film or digital. Most film stocks are sensitive to UV light.  If you are shooting film, outdoors at high ...
  • It depends on whether the location was somewhere you suggested. I absolutely agree that insurance is important. If you are grossing $15K a year, then your take home is likely a lot less. I agree at ...
  • Yes, lots of people and companies have trouble dealing with businesses that are sole proprietorships. They think concepts that apply to other business structures (like a requirement for an EIN) ...
  • Replied in +1
    A lot depends on the force and energy of the air coming out of the compressor. You really don't want an air stream much more stronger than what comes out of a hand bulb blower.  A bulb blower ...
  • Replied in +1
    There are a number of reasons not to spray canned air into a camera.  One is that these cans produce a very forceful stream of air.  Strong enough to deflect and damage the shutter, or knock the ...
  • The danger from scratches on your lens is flare.   Take a black fine point Sharpie® marker, and black out the cracks.  This should eliminate added flare from the cracks. It will reduce light by a ...
  • Yes. There are no 100% sure things. A corporation does not provide 100% protection. It does provide more protection then being a sole proprietorship.  In some situations it can provide significant ...
  • There is already UV protection for the sensor.  There is no need for additional protection. If you are not using a lens cap, a more important issue is protection from the sun.   Never leave the ...
  • There should be a bit more prefixed to the error message.  From what you're included it appears that there is an issue with a gradient.  This could be an issue where Illustrator has written a bad ...
  • EF-S lens provide a way to get equal quality at a lower cost. The EF lens mount is designed to accommodate the mirror box in a full frame camera.  Crop factor bodies have a smaller mirror box.  The ...
  • I have both the original and Mk II versions of the 100-400 f/4-5.6 IS Lens. The Mk II version is better in a number of ways, including: Better IS. The IS on the original is rated at providing up to ...
  • Actually, there is general agreement that the need for protective filters depends on circumstances.  The points of discussion tend to revolve around what are the circumstances.  For instance you ...
  • The quality of the coatings influence the situations where you will see issues. Even a cheap filter will give you excellent results under good conditions. For instance, if you poke the lens with a ...
  • But there is no universal answer to whether or not you should use a protective filter. The correct answer depends on the specifics of the circumstances. An important factor is the lens being used. ...
  • Actually, on the Canon 100-400 Mk2, a filter can easily contribute to reduced sharpness. The front element of the 100-400 has a smudge and fingerprint resistant coating.  Most filters don't. With a ...
  • Although I generally recommend against using UV filters, there are some circumstances where it is appropriate to use them. Unlike digital, film is generally sensitive to UV light.  If you are ...
  • Your 7D and 70D are both crop factor bodies.  Changing to the 7D2 will not give you additional reach.  The 7D2 has the same pixel count and same sensor size as your 70D. You would get slightly more ...
  • The 70D requires an f/5.6 or faster lens to autofocus.  You will get better accuracy with an f/2.8 or faster lens. When you attach the 2X teleconverter to the 70-200 f/4, the resulting combination ...
  • A lot depends on what you shoot and under what conditions. When I am on vacation and want to cut down on weight, I take a Canon SL1 with the 18-135 STM lens.  That covers 90% of what I want to shoot. ...
