Peter Kwok's recent activity

  • Replied in I have both
    Actually, I had the 10-22 back in the days when I used the 20D and 50D. I gave it away after moving to the full frame 5Dmk3. I bought the 11-22 recently for my M6. So, I can't do direct comparison. ...
  • As soon as it take it out of my bag, I move it to 11mm, so as to be ready to shoot.
  • Replied in Every bit counts
    As a US senator once said, "A billion here and a billion there. Pretty soon you are talking about real money." I know USB charging electronics are cheap. But it is not free. Canon probably already ...
  • Amazon carries the OAproda ultra slim USB charger along with batteries. For those that want to charge from a power bank on the road, it is a good choice. It is much smaller than Canon's supplied ...
  • I agree with most posters here. Canon can either (1) build USB charging feature into cameras and sell the external charger, or (2) supply an external charger also, but raise the price. I guess if ...
  • Created discussion thread Wow, 30 white L lens in a bundle
    A recent astronomical discovery using a telescope that is an array of Canon telephoto lens. https://physicsworld.com/a/galaxy-devoid-of-dark-matter-puzzles-astronomers/
  • Transfer speed of 1M byte per second may be fast for someone sending one or two photos, but painfully slow for dumping an entire SD card. For me, sending 1-2 dozens of S1 jpg takes too long, ...
  • I have never tried the M100, but my M6 is slow on WiFi also. Although the M100 is newer, it has the same Digic 7 cpu as the M5/M6. I doubt Canon changed its WiFi firmware code. The M50 has the ...
  • The north pole of the Moon is on top, exactly the same way astronomy sites show it. You can only get this orientation when shooting in the Arctic area.  The Moon is rotated in posts from others in ...
  • Mounting/removing an EF lens along with the adaptor allows you to switch from/to a native EF-M lens quickly. This exposes the sensor for minimum time, keeping dusts away. If you are switching from ...
  • My original M with a 18-55 kit lens barely fits the front pocket of my Dockers. I can walk with it, even going up stairs. I always take it out before sitting down. It is not comfortable and it may ...
  • Last year, my 5DMk3 was stolen. I still have its charger but no battery. I bought a 5DS as a replacement, which comes with the newer LP-E6N battery, same as the one sold with the 5DMk4. Although ...
  • On average, Canon sold 1.5 lens for each camera. I wonder how many of those camera were sold to users who only used the kit lens. Of the buyers that use the interchangeable lens feature, how many ...
  • I don't know what else you plan to do besides taking photos of your young children doing their things. I will take the liberty of listing the features of these lens in priority for taking candid ...
  • I do a lot of shooting in museums and churches. IS is handy because flash and tripods are prohibited.
  • I had the same symptom with mine years ago. However, AF was OK at 17mm but not at other focal lengths. I sort of figured out the problem when I saw that the EXIF of all my photos were 17mm ...
  • The Rebel SL2 has all the M100 feature plus an optical viewfinder and sells for $50 less. The only thing it can't match the M100 is the ability to use those few precious cute little EF-M lens. Unle ...
  • Replied in 13" Asus Zenbook
    I use an Asus UX301LA, which has been discontinued. They have newer models now. These laptops packs a powerful cpu, good size memory and most important of all an optional 2560x1440 pixel screen ...
  • Beside using f2.8 and high shutter speed on the M5 as most posters noted, the Pixel phone processed the photo beyond the jpg out of the M5. CPUs in smart phones are a lot more powerful than ...
