  • Looks like you can get used 220EX, 270EX, and 270EX II flashes for around $50-80. I bought a 220EX that way. Barely use it, but I expected that to be the case. James
  • What you describe sounds exactly how it would behave if the diopter setting is off.  When you say it has already been made, what was done and how did you confirm that it is on the correct setting? ...
  • There are different metering modes and what live view uses isn't necessarily the same as via the viewfinder. Check your manual to see what the modes are for each and you should find your answer ...
  • I think I bought the Lee WA 77mm adapter but for 82mm and 67mm I bought aftermarket WA adapters from The Filter Dude on Ebay.  $25 and they seem to be the same as the Lee adapters.  Quite frankly, ...
  • You're welcome Lawrence.  Let me just say that I think you're going about this the right way.  From your various threads, you're learning the details of how your equipment works, figuring out ...
  • Silent shutter is a terrific feature for situations just like you describe, when the typical noise of a DSLR is distracting.  The shutter lag is longer than normal mode and you can see it for ...
  • Replied in Did you test it?
    What numbers are reported in various displays are sometimes estimates or conservative numbers to ensure that the camera delivers what is displayed.  I haven't bothered to test mine to see how deep ...
  • Mine shows 22 shots unless it's set to high ISO values.  Some settings, such as high ISO noise reduction and the lens abberation corrections, will reduce your buffer.  I have all of those types of ...
  • Replied in Is GPS enabled?
    When GPS is enabled it takes a couple of seconds or so to fully wake up.  I haven't looked through the viewfinder or tried to focus during this period, but the top LCD flashes the GPS and log ...
  • Does the male get skittish when using silent shutter? James
  • 35" foldable octabox with an optional 40 deg grid. I have the 47" model and I'm happy with it. Haven't used other brands so I can't compare. Not sure how shipping to Canada impacts the final ...
  • After high and low speed continuous, it has single silent and continuous silent options. James
  • Replied in If it were me
    I'd use Canonpricewatch and get the 5DIII and 24-70 f/2.8 II for $4100 after rebate.  I greatly prefer having more than the single cross-type focus point, so that eliminates the 6D for me.  For ...
  • Your title says "Eneloop or Eneloop Pro (800 vs 2550mAh)" but you seem to be taking the regular Eneloop AAA capacity vs. the Eneloop Pro AA capacity.  The Pro models are about 20-25% higher ...
  • I tried my 5D3 with grip and the 70-200 II in various orientations with my DH50 v2.  I put in the camera so that the base was on the side of the holster with the belt attachment.  The tripod mount ...
  • Hi Rob, It should be a fun and productive trip. I'm assuming that you'll stay in an Orlando hotel the entire time so the locations need to be close enough to make it a day trip. TIPS: Reserve the ...
  • Replied in Try cumulative
    I have the Sekonic 358 and with the disclaimer that I've never tried to do just this, try putting it into the cumulative flash mode instead of the single flash mode. It may be able to record both ...
  • You posted a couple of replies and then retracted them, so I'm not sure what settings you used.  Here are a few suggestions. 1.  Use single point.  As others have stated, use single point so that ...
  • Replied in Think Tank
    I have many of their products, including at least three of their digital holsters. See which version fits your need. James
  • Replied in Kenko DGX?
    If you have the DGX, do you have the blue dot version? There were some compatibility issues with the earlier versions, including when used with the 100mm L macro. James
