  • Regardless, I do appreciate the updates regarding availability. A recent post was the only mention anywhere that a few lenses were back in stock at Canon USA.
  • I really like my Sony Rx 100 IV, especially the fast lens for low light conditions and the pop-up viewfinder.  I don't know if I could justify additional expense for any of the newer Sony cameras.
  • Great review and wonderful photos. I borrowed a friend's rented 800mm lens when birding in Alaska.  Here are my thoughts after using the lens for several hundred images: When I was able to get the ...
  • When I shifted from DSLR to the R5, the first lens I bought was a 24-240.  This is the first non-L Canon lens I have bought in 15 years. Up to now, I have been using an EF 24-105, but thought that ...
  • 1. How old is the filter? 2. SanDisk has a very liberal warranty policy. You should contact them for a replacement.
  • Congrats!  (Man, was I tempted....)
  • For LR videos, Adobe TV has lots of free videos.  I remember watching videos created by Julieanne Kost when I was first learning Lr.  You can also look at TheLightroomQueen for training materials. ...
  • I often carry two cameras in my GuraGear 22L backpack. In fact on my latest photo trip I carried three Canon bodies, two telephoto zooms, three wide angle/normal zooms, one teleconverter, an ...
  • Hmmn... this is all very interesting, but I wonder what your clients think if the expensive photographer they hired shows up on a bicycle... :)
  • If I'm carrying my camera and lens and plan to use them imminently, then I would put the camera at the top and keep the lens hood reversed. If I am simply transporting the camera and lens, I would ...
  • The 30L was my Go To backpack for everything when I owned a 500mm f4.  When I sold the 500mm, I sold the 30L, but immediately replaced it with a 22L.  The 22L, by the way, will also hold a 500mm ...
  • I guess the real questions is: are you collecting lenses or making photographs? If you are making photos, then get the lenses that you need to go along with the camera you expect to be using for ...
  • (continuing the list of possibilities that was started above) ... or photographed a laser show?  Or an eclipse without neutral density filters? Or left the camera outside with both the lens and ...
  • I don't see anything significantly wrong technically with the images posted (at the size I can view them at). The photos seem decent considering the conditions and the camera you are using. ...
  • Replied in Sales?
    I don't think that Adorama or B&H have special sales, per se.  When Canon announces an instant discount, most major retailers offer the same "$100 off" or "$200 off" deals.  Sometimes B&H or Hunts ...
  • I own and use both straps ( as well as three or four other brands). I like Peak Design because the connector is smaller on the camera when the strap is not attached.  I don't like the metal cam ...
  • Replied in BBF on the R5
    I've set up my R5 essentially in the same way. I found it worked great.
  • Don't forget that each of the IS modes operates differently and, thus, it is not inconceivable that each will sound different.  I don't have my supertelephoto any more but I seem to remember that ...
  • I'm not sure what the issue is.  I've been using USB-A to move huge photo files around on my iMac for years. Whenever an external drive gets too full, I add the new drive to my USB hub and start ...
  • It sounds to me like normal IS noise. The way you have been troubleshooting the lens indicates that it is the noise of the IS unit.  Unless it is significantly louder than normal ambient noise, ...
