  • Replied in focal length?
    Of course, I forgot that I can see the exif info on the lower left corner. Very convenient. Really, really impressive sharpness at 600mm. It is not only the lens: you did a good job too. Thanks, Ar ...
  • Replied in focal length?
    Are these all at 600mm? How good is the lens between 500-600 mm? Thanks! Armando.
  • Replied in bookmarking
    Very nice galleries. i am bookmarking them so that I can come back later on. Armando.
  • Replied in mailman88
    Thanks for your kind words. So many opportunities for good (and sad!) pictures in Cuba! Do you know where can I find the film done with the 50 1DXs that you referenced? (The full final product). Ta ...
  • Really cool. Thanks for posting! Armando.
  • You all game me good suggestions. Many thanks! This will help my daughter! Armando.
  • Help! I gave my old Rebel XT to my daughter but cannot find the installation CD with the drivers and software. She cannot find a downloadable driver on the canon website.  She uses windows 7. How ...
  • Replied in story of picture
    Does anybody know the story behind this picture? Was it a joke (somebody borrowing his friend's cam/lenses for this pic) or a real shooting practice of the photographer? This seems very unsafe for ...
  • Replied in Michael,
    Many thanks for your reply. Very instructive. What you are saying makes a lot of sense. The main problem is with possible augmented flare. I have had pictures with too much flare, and I never ...
  • Replied in Michael,
    Michael, the problem I see in your reasoning is that image quality is affected so little by a good (not even an excellent) filter that the different is imperceptible. Have you really done tests ...
  • Replied in I use both
    I actually use a filter and the lens hood. Matter of preference. Happy shooting, Armando.
  • There is a very interesting discussion going on here about the effects of filters on flare. However, most people use UV filters just to protect the front element of their lenses. I am one of them!! ...
  • Replied in problem solved
    Since both Steve and Hank insisted on the quality of B+W, I decided to give it another try. Again, did not work after a few attempts. But then, just in case, I removed the hood, which I had in ...
  • I am having trouble screwing my new B+W 72mm UV Haze MRC 010M Filter into my almost brand new EF 135 f/2. The filter just wont go in. I tried to position the filter in multiple ways, and nothing. ...
  • Replied in qianp2k
    I actually was using a laptop tethering the camera to it...and I still could not do PRECISE focus, at least not as precise as what I was doing with AF. Just moving the focus ring by a hair created ...
  • Thanks. I watched the video explaining the DOT-Tune method. I like the method in principle. However, it assumes that I can manually focus with precision (step 2). I have found it difficult to do ...
  • Phil, if I understand you correctly, you are suggesting something very interesting. Are you saying that if the camera/lens back-focuses by a tiny bit, then it is making better use of the "DOF ...
  • Replied in Thanks
    Ok, thanks. That is what I thought, but wanted to be sure. I dialed in +20 just to see clearly if this will move the focus backwards towards infinity and it did so. I ended up with +4. Happy ...
  • Sorry, I have difficulties understanding the language in the 5D-II manual: If my lens is front-focusing, should I use positive or negative compensation? Thanks! Armando.
  • Replied in time of day
    Actually, now that I pay attention to the time in the exif info and the the shadows, it looks more like 1PM. Great job anyways to avoid harsh light. I guess you were using a nice lens with low flare. ...
