  • I totally agree. I own both the EF 16-35 f/4L and EF 11-24 f/4L. Both are wonderful; the 11-24 is huge, heavy, and its extremely curved front element needs to be protected from damage. For me, the ...
  • Also, I happened to look at B&H yesterday for a friend, and they had a $400 discount on the R5. As suggested earlier, you might weigh what you think the R5's missing (and would likely be included ...
  • It's not just you. Look at the forums both here and at Fred Miranda and you'll see lots of complaints and some workarounds. Workarounds vary from simply marking the caps in various ways, to ...
  • Nancy, fyi I sent several Raw files illustrating the problem to CPS several weeks ago. They seem to be having trouble figuring out what's happening (I need to call them again). Their first ...
  • Are you sure you can get it delivered from Canon by this weekend? It's now Wednesday, after all. I've only had good experiences ordering direct from Canon. The only downside is that every order's ...
  • I got lucky: bought mine on a refurb sale for significantly less than MSRP. It's a wonderful lens to have, but I don't get enough use to justify the full price. If a "someday" RF replacement comes ...
  • I'm keeping my 5D4, which is currently attached to an MP-E65 mounted on a StackShot. It's a special setup and very convenient to not have to mess around swapping cables and such. That setup works ...
  • Just measured mine. The mounting surface is a trapezoid with rounded corners. Camera end is ~39mm wide; front end is ~33mm wide; length is ~55mm, and the camera end has a slight curve. Tripod ...
  • This has been the case for a very long time.
  • I’ve read the new terms a couple of times. Missed the “subscribe for 5 years, get a perpetual license for no cost” part, though. I really see few differences between the new and old programs other ...
  • To be fair, I’m not sure that everyone is aware that Capture One and Phase One have been two [venture-owned] companies for a bit over a year (maybe 2). Before the break, Capture One was a Phase ...
  • You might get useful responses in the Retouching forum, as converting negatives to positives is more of a post-processing question than a camera capture one. Search the forum first: I'm pretty sure ...
  • I think your best bet would be Affinity Photo; second might be Adobe Photoshop Elements. Both have learning curves, and they become easier the more you use them. I prefer Affinity Photo because ...
  • It sounds like R5, R6, R6 II and maybe even an R camera would be fine for you at this point. You've said nothing that suggests that a R5 II will benefit you in any way, other than reducing your ...
  • Yes, C1’s Speed Edit consists of keyboard shortcuts for a number of adjustments. You just press the up/down or left/right arrow keys while holding down the key for the adjustment. Works very well ...
  • I'm guessing that if you've got PS, you've also subscribed to LR. LR would be the tool for importing, culling and bulk editing. Or you could use something like FastRawViewer (inexpensive) or Photo ...
  • Also, I forgot to mention what everyone should already know: Extenders reduce the effective aperture of the lens. 1.4X is a 1-stop reduction, 2X is 2 stops. It's been quite a while since I studied ...
  • Sorry about your problem; I know someone else who had to give up his Mathis keyboard because he developed serious arthritis in both hands. If you’re thinking of a Loupedeck, you might also have a ...
  • Yes, of course R5 settings can be shared—it’s easy to save them to a file and upload the file to another R5 (I rely on this, as I have 2 R5’s). What gets saved is virtually every setting on the R5 ...
  • Yes, it’s because of transmission — everything in the optical path absorbs some light regardless of how well it’s coated, its material, etc. Basic physics.
