  • That's not quite correct. The 11-22 STM does retract, although not by very much. When you turn the camera on you have to manually extend the lens, and you see a prompt on the LCD to do so. ...
  • Thanks for the prompt reply.  I figured that all or most of the rivers would be active about the same time.  We'll actually be up there for at least a couple of months so we can be where we need ...
  • Replied in Northbound ...
    Where are you on the coast...my best friend*, and photo buddy lives in Morro Bay, I'm in Solvang. I teach at Hancock College and Rich (Hansen) is a nature and wildlife photographer. We should all ...
  • Replied in Northbound ...
    When Monterey was the capital of Alto California the Spanish called everything south of Monterey Sur.  I think all the way to San Simeon, maybe even Morro Bay.  Could be wrong. I have been living ...
  • Replied in Northbound ...
    Technically I believe you're already in the Big Sur (Sur=south) when you're where you shot this. Really nice light and composition, a little color tweaking might be in order though. Play with it, ...
  • Created discussions Goldstream salmon run
    Hi All, Ann and I are spending some time on Vancouver Island this fall and would like to shoot the Salmon run at Goldstream Provincial Park. Anyone on board the forum shot it?  Peak time, I know it ...
  • Replied in M3 cost?
    Lenses, flash units and most other accessories will work.  Batteries are different (LP-E17), same as the Rebel T6i.  Some quick release plates and grips won't work either. Of course the EVF is not ...
  • Interesting, even though the web site shows "pre-order" I ordered anyway and they'll be here on Tuesday.  Web master seems a little bit behind! Thanks for sharing the information, it really helped. :-)
  • Really?  The web site still shows them as "pre-order" items. JD
  • I'm finding mine to have enough advantages over the original M that I'm quite pleased I bought one. Many of the things that have been complained about, legitimately I might add, for me are simply ...
  • It is my understanding that as the tele-converter is essentially changing the focal length, hence the f/stop (the f/stop is a ratio of the diameter of the lens to the focal length. With a ...
  • I know that this thread is really old, but I went looking for the Think Tank cases at Samy's in Santa Barbara yesterday but came home with the Tamrac Apache 2 instead.  Holds the M3 and all four ...
  • You can also use plus diopter lenses, also know as close-up filters, with pretty good results. They simply screw on the lens like a filter and unlike extension tubes, there is no loss of light. The ...
  • You haven't said how you plan to use the camera so it's hard to make a definitive recommendations, although many will try...:-D Are you aware that the 5D lacks Live View? If you do, or hope to do ...
  • I think you need to double check your facts.  EF-S lenses will not fit a FF Canon body, without modification. Before you get your dander up, I just tried putting an EF-S 18-135mm STM and an 18-55mm ...
  • I just ran a simple test.  EOS M3, 22mm lens, 5 stop ND...no problem.  In my office or outdoors. Two filters would still work outdoors, but not indoors. So I think you're golden. JD
  • I was able to do my 90mm TS-E but no way could I do the same on the 24...or the other way around.  I know I had to send one of them in.  I belong to the Canon CPS service, and have since it's ...
  • I think you'd be better off getting a tilt/shift adapter that lets you use medium format lenses. I use a Mirex Mamiya 645 to EF (EOS) adapter. If you're trying to use EF, or any other digital ...
  • Do you know if this will work with the lever type RRS quick releases? JD
  • I blew it... as was pointed out, and after double checking, the plate is indeed aluminum.  I really don't know how I mistook it for plastic.  All I can think is it was early, and I hadn't finished ...
