  • Think a 'good' backpack is part of the problem! The Lowe Pro I use with my DSLR kit tips the scales with laptop at a pretty hefty 40 something lbs. I posted the exact number on a different thread ...
  • After years of lugging big heavy gear, somehow twerking my back and a touch of arthritis made me suspect my body was going....
  • That's odd since on the top photo it's clearly visible, look at the little circle and arrows.... on the second shot it's harder to see since the angle isn't great and the pin is hidden in shadows ...
  • Replied in Ditto
    Yup same concern over bumping the front element. Though I've had a 15mm Fisheyes in my kits (FD and EF) for 30+ years and as you say you get into the habit of shooting then immediately capping the ...
  • Just to add to what Sittatunga said, to release a lens that has been taken off the camera in that situation there is a small pin (though looking at my 50mm it appears to have two) that has to be ...
  • Replied in Thanks!
    Enjoyed reading your article. This system was off my radar but after looking at your photos I'm certainly interested in checking it out. One thing that really struck me was the clarity of colour ...
  • Used one last month, big lens but used to big lenses so not really an issue. Loved the feel and extra wide angle which gave a perspective that the Sigma couldn't get because it wasn't quite as wide. ...
  • Well..... My Canon F1's had Motor Drive MF's which had a dandy grip.... The Leica M6 and M4P don't have grips but do have power winders making them a bit longer and slightly better to hold. I've ...
  • Just want to point this out, not overall as implied but in it's particular market segment... "Canon boasts that the SL2 has the world’s fastest autofocus speed among similar cameras of this class. ...
  • It did look like something you would get if you used shadow/highlight in Photoshop with a feather radius that was too small. Interesting, I don't think I've ever turned it on on my N1's and likely ...
  • I use B+W filters, never had issues with them. Many many years ago I bought a supply of Toshiba multicoated filters and they were the best I've used. However I do not believe they are available ...
  • Replied in Knockoff vs OEM
    I've purchased knockoff's in the past. Work fine, occasionally with these bayonet type hoods they don't lock as well as the OEM version but 95% of the time they have been fine. I've probably ...
  • I'm the same, if 4K video was a big deal I wouldn't even consider a DSLR and would head straight to the C200, Blackmagic or Panasonic DVX200.
  • Replied in scratched lens
    If this was purchased on eBay I would register a problem on the system as buyer protection can then kick in. Will the scratch be a big problem? Hard to say how badly it will show but lets take a ...
  • Someone else already pointed it out but that is a fairly important question. If I was primarily shooting FF then my backup would without question be another 5D IV and therefore a 6D II might not ...
  • I just move on if it's something that doesn't catch my fancy. I thought some of the images were quite lovely but others not so much but it certainly gave me a good insight into how that sensor ...
  • Heh heh, our Canadian Robins look way different then the one's in the UK eh!
  • he would be that one. Have used it in the past, it's incredibly good for a zoom.
  • In my case it is crop body (7D II or 7D I) with my 5D II. Think this goes back to my days of shooting film where I always worked with two identical bodies, primarily so that if I emptied one I ...
  • I'm thinking the same thing, the EF 35 I would be using as a fast wide in my kit on a FF body. The EF-S is a crop lens so that punts it out to 56mm on our 7D's.
