  • Henrys up here in Canada sell open box items including Canon. Canon Canada sells open box items typically in the white generic boxes our neighbours to the south get. Refurbished can be many things, ...
  • Replied in Hard to say
    It's a T mount lens with no electronic contacts so it can be adapted to anything. I have a Mepro 500mm catadioptric lens that is a T mount with T mount to N1 adaptor. It's not great. If that lens ...
  • With just the lens cap the aperture ring does not function. Mounting on a camera body or proper adaptor 'sets' a pin that allows full aperture operation. With just the rear lens cap you see what ...
  • This makes me wonder if the lens was the problem of the V1. Is the V1 upgraded to latest firmware?
  • Can't say I want to use caps on the cameras I am working with. Shooting spot news that extra couple of seconds removing and storing that cap may be the difference between getting the shot and not. ...
  • Replied in Try a hard reset
    Remove battery for a couple of days as that will run down the internal backup battery. Then install fresh battery(s). If you are using a grip, make sure that it is attached tight to the bottom of ...
  • Replied in Bad idea
    Have you had any experience taking apart small complex mechanical devices? Oh wait you are talking about the newer electronic cameras..... same response only now add in the added headache of fried ...
  • Personally I would go for this over an M3. I own both but an M6 or 7 is far more useful since it has a very good built in meter that takes it's reading from the cameras shutter curtain. An M3 does ...
  • Why you ask? Because it will teach you to look, ponder and then shoot where as a digital camera you just hit a button and worry about whether it worked or not later. In a sense one might call this ...
  • I would say it will greatly depend. In terms of sharpness, colour correction and fringing, again I suspect it depends. Older/original EF lenses were not USM so they tend to be a lot slower focusing ...
  • Like this? http://consumer.huawei.com/en/phones/p10/
  • Granted some of these are now rather pricey but when they sold the CL and CLe they had a version of the 40mm, 28mm and 90mm under the Minolta name.
  • Is that if not dried out quickly, the water causes the circuit boards to rust and this might show up right away. On laptops that I've had come through that had liquid spills I pull them apart and ...
  • I'd say the 85mm will be fine for whatever camera you buy. As to the other zooms, maybe. If they were the older one touch zooms where you pushed/pulled the lens barrel it's likely that todays ...
  • 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 ...
