  • gimp doesn't do RAW out of the box, but its pretty powerful. You just have to get past the rather annoying differences in methods to do things and UI. I'm just an amateur and don't fancy giving ...
  • The alcohol swabs I used certainly weren't just alcohol. Even cleaning a pair of glasses with them left very obvious horrible smudges (that could easily be wiped off in the case of the glasses), ...
  • I too would very much like some idea of what's inside the M. At the very least some info on the different filters, which ones to remove and what they look like.
  • Great info. Thanks all! The ILC option does seem very tempting, albeit not as cheap as the 100 Ds option :P (I wasn't aware IR affects car shape so much). Hunting round for specs to figure out ...
  • I've been playing with a hoya R72 for a while now with an unconverted 7D. Yes, very long exposures but with the right conditions and after getting use to the extended time in post I feel I've got ...

  • Heh, so the alcohol actually corrodes the plastic surface? While this may be the case it looks like most of the dirt is left over from the liquid, with some stuff the cloth didn't pick up. Until I ...
  • Created discussions Cleaning a 7D focusing screen
    Hi, Ever since I've had my 7D there's always been a small but harsh black spot on the focusing screen. It never really bothered me but I decided I'd try to remove it anyway. I used a 'mediswab' 70% ...
  • What happened to me was this: After DCIM/100EOS7D/IMG_9999.CR2 it created a new folder DCIM/101EOS7D/ to put photos into and reset the numbering to 1. I nearly lost a heap of photos from this ...
