  • Since the OP is thinking of using an adapter rather than going for a mount conversion, it should be pointed out that to use FD lenses on the EF mount any adapter needs glass element(s) to maintain...
  • Normally, adapters don't work well on Canon bodies. My understanding is that the "flange distance" is too long (or too short?) to use lenses from other manufacturers and be able to focus to...
  • I've used BBF consistently for eight years and I also hold the camera in portrait orientation as you do; I always found the "correct" way awkward. The relative positions of the shutter release and...
  • Can it work at super fast apetures? Having used a scale focusing 35mm film compact as my go everywhere camera in the past, I now use this technique quite often for street shooting on digital.  How...
  • You can compare all relevant cameras with lenses on http://www.camerasize.com.  It provides images, dimensions and weights. Charlie
  • All members need do is to be sensible enough to mention their country when they ask a question which requires a country related answer. Charlie
  • and in doing so demonstrated what a bad idea it was!  The camera had the same bulk as their DSLRs less the prism hump, so that it had the double disadvantage of no reduction in size coupled with...
  • If you are seriously thinking of buyng the Canon 24-70mm F/2.8, I suggest that you handle it first.  It provides only one stop over the 24-105mm, but is much heavier. Charlie
  • The OP is using different lenses on the two cameras; the Sony kit lens on the A7 plus a Canon LTM, and the Canon 24-70mm lens on the 5DIII.  He could not interchange those lenses on those...
  • I had to clean my 5D a few times, but I never had to clean the 5DII nor have I had to clean the 5DIII so far. Charlie
  • Most of the street crime occurs in busy central tourist areas. Of all the many attempts made on our friends in recent years, all but one happened in daylight. Charlie
  • After my first post it occurred to me that it might put off possible visitors.  I shouldn't like to do that, even though I have been the intended victim of street crime seven times in seven years. ...
  • It's difficult to say if it would be better to visit Las Ramblas early, rather than later.  As you obiously guess, there are fewer people there early in the morning; in Spain early means before...
  • As someone who is a long term resident and who loves Barcelona, I deeply regret having to tell you that the city is plagued by street crime more than any other I know in Europe.  To...
  • That's the law in Spain That is strictly true as far as the law is concerned, with many exceptions allowed, largely for press photographers and photojournalists (LO 1/1982 de 5 de mayo).  However,...
  • I have variously sold them, part exchanged them and had one converted to IR for continuing use.  I  would particularly mention giving a P+S to a charity that teaches photography as part of its work...
  • I still sometimes use my 10 year old 300D/Digital Rebel, but only after having it converted to IR. Charlie
  • The point here is that the camera is taking pictures with far greater bit depth and a wider dynamic range than the JPG rendering produces. In the darkroom, having that extra resolution and dynamic...
  • Most IRND filters, cheap or expensive, produce a color cast. My experience with IRND filters is very similiar to what your photos show (green cast). If anybody knows of, or find color neutral IRND...
  • I went for a doubling series: 25mm, 50mm, 100mm, 200mm, 400mm. You can start with just the first three, and of course the focal lengths don't have to be exact. When I started in photography there...
