  • Created discussion thread Canon R (Manual Focus Aid)
    Am I missing something? Driving me nuts that when one is in manual focus mode using the aligning triangles, that the focus aid feature disappears when one zooms in to 5x or 10x. Is there a way to ...
  • Interested in how many people (with the Epson 3880) or I suppose other printers use a cover when not printing for more than a week or two. I live in Houston, so not horribly dry usually (except ...
  • The Sigma is a very nice lens if one needs <16mm and the f2.8 aperture.  Another alternative is the Canon 16-35 f4 IS which I've had for several years and that lens is excellent optically, ...
  • Both prior posts interesting and helpful. Maybe my anxiety about switching black inks is overblown, I just don't do it regularly and the waste of ink in doing so seems a bit absurd (some on the ...
  • Canon RF 15-35mm F2.8L IS Review - DustinAbbott.net Very good review and includes test shots in the the great outdoors. The DPReview review of the lens includes a gallery too.
  • How about right here at DPReview? Canon RF 15-35mm F2.8L IS USM sample gallery: Digital Photography Review (dpreview.com) Also suggest you google it, there are several other reviews with focus ...
  • Created discussion thread Epson 3880 - Black Ink
    So I managed to resolve an issue I had, but wanted to seek input to a work around I had contemplated to see whether it sounded possible and decent or like a bad idea. So I generally only print on ...
  • I have the Samyang (Rokinon) AF 14 mm f2.8 EF lens which I use on the R with adapter (also use it with Canon 6D too). I had to use docking station to update firmware so the AF would would work ...
  • You need to update the firmware in lens with Sigma docking device. The autofocus performance is materially better afterwards too.
  • Yes, pretty sure that's still the case.
  • At least on the R (which presumably would perform similarly) I would recommend the Sigma 35 f1.4 Art. Once firmware was updated, the focus was snappy and very accurate even switching between ...
  • I had the same issue with the Sigma 35 f1.4A lens. I recommend going the dock route and update the firmware in the lens, that fixed it for me. I also feel like the lens performed a little bit ...
  • Created discussion thread Sigma Refurbished Lenses - from OEM
    Anyone had an especially good or bad experience with refurbished lenses purchased from Sigma? Looking at a 14-24mm f2.8 refurbished to try to reduce costs and just wonder whether that falls into ...
  • I agree with posts related to no-name Chinses L brackets. In my experience they are excellent. Just mind-numbing to me why for an engineered piece of metal folks would pay $100 or more when there ...
  • How serious a problem is fungus to lenses in general use, e.g. what sorts of things lend themselves to higher risk for it and what are good practices to avoid it as it sounds pretty awful. Is it ...
  • Have to agree that the Ink-jet-mall inks are excellent in quality (full OEM equivalence) and are measurably cheaper. I have found I am getting fewer ink head clogs too. The tonal range on black & ...
  • Plus 1 on the suggestion of the Laowa 7.5 f2. It's small and light weight and optically excellent. Vignette at f2.0 is there but it can be fixed in post and from f4.0 on its tack sharp and bright ...
  • Created discussion thread Epson 3880
    So I've had an Epson 3880 for a number of years. Been a great printer on balance. The clogging ink (more than occasional) has been a bit of a nuisance, but I figured out how to clean the head and ...
  • So to Chicago Rob and DVsh, thank you both on suggestions and I ordered some of the RR Palo Duro Soft Gloss and Palo Duro B-300 (smaller 5x7) to try them out.  Appreciate it. On the forum, to the ...
  • Replied in PhotoPills
    Ain't that the truth. Always a nuisance to deactivate and re-install and re-activate and that sort of thing.
