rsn48's recent activity

  • Replied in Peak Design
    Received my new anchors (4) and two mounting triangles.  Just curious, the old thin ones were rated to 300 pounds, is there a rating for the new replacement ones?
  • When playing the used market, patience is a virtue, but once you see something - pounce. You missed out on a good deal with the Canon 85, just be patient and look for another one; it will appear. I ...
  • Keep both systems, DSLR's do somethings better than a mirrorless. I have the X T1 and X 100f, but also Canon with wonderful Canon and third party lenses. I would give neither up for the other.
  • I need four new ones and they are sending them for free up here to Vancouver Island.  Great stuff. At least a company who is responding aggressively to rectify a problem rather than companies ...
  • I have a full frame camera and great lenses, the X T1 and 4 primes, and the X 100f.  It depends what I'm doing as to which one is my primary camera.  Anything moving fast or the potential to move ...
  • Replied in Great Photos
    I don't often say "Excellent" on a photo forum, but your shots deserve that, or more accurately - you do!
  • Replied in Polarizer shape
    So being the psychic kind of guy I am, after reading the plastic container my Tiffen filter came in which said "circular" polarizer, I concluded it was a circular polarizer, that also happened to ...
  • Replied in If printing out
    Instead of 8 by 10 with a 2:3 aspect ration, go 8 by 12 and your entire picture will fit. I get trial prints from Walmart before going larger just to make sure the image is solid enough for the ...
  • Thanks both.
  • Created discussion thread Canon 85mm f1.8?
    So I purchased a used Canon 85mm f1.8, haven't used it yet, but if it lives up to the hype, I know I will enjoy it. Question. I have an older 58mm circular polarizer kicking around but I seem to ...
  • When and where is the funeral?  Will there be refreshments afterwards?
  • Replied in Been awhile.
    Liked your images.  Most amateurs, myself included, shoot sporadically so no need to mention your particulars.  The nice thing about retirement is that I get to shoot more on a regular basis and ...
  • Fujifilm is having a slow but sure impact. Many of the points against a smaller system are slowly dissolving once you have tried out Fuji cameras and lenses. I also am a Canon 5D mk 4 kind of guy ...
  • I do.  I'd like to note, if metal were all that great, why are football helmets made of the stuff?
  • So I'm a Canon guy, still am, but also a Fuji guy as well now. My first Fujifilm camera was the X 100f, love it, use it constantly, have taken some great photos, a few of which I'm planning to sell. ...
  • I have a rule of thumb, if you have to ask us about a lens or camera, you don't need it.  If you needed it, you wouldn't ask us. The main purpose of the X 100f is street photography, the second ...
  • I use JPEG exclusively with my X 100f and RAW exclusively with my Canon full frame camera. In JPEG mode, I shoot either in Velvia with some slight modifications and Acros with some slight ...
  • The X 100f is a niche or specialized camera that is not for everyone; most don't want a "minimalist" camera. I would say most who want a modified X 100f would be better served with something like ...
  • First, I'm a big lens hood user on my Canon and X T1 lens (All primes), but with my X 100f I don't add anything to it, I want it pocketable (in cargo pant pockets or baggy trousers pockets). All my ...
  • So I send money off to some stranger hoping I get the product, to me the risk is on his part.  I've had a few friends send money off and not get the product. With used gear, I'm a local kind of ...
