EOS Bodies / Re: EOS-1D X & EOS-1D C Cold Weather Autofocus Issues
« on: April 03, 2014, 06:17:15 PM »
I don't think this affects all 1DX, mine works flawlessly at -35Celcius. I live in Montreal, I have used it more than 5 times below -35 (pond hockey on a lake, barbegazzi for example)...

I also live in Montréal, and I don't recall any -35 C days this winter. There may have been a couple of nights that were +/- -30 C and several days that were +/- -20 C, but that's it. I know because I walk the city a LOT and when it gets down to and below -18 C, I don't go out except for short excursions--aka, for supplies. Just saying.

Think Tank RAWKS! Pick your style. You won't be disappointed.

great images.  Thanks for posting.  I like Big Ben - too bad street sign is in front of the tower.

I am of the opinion the "street sign" makes the picture.

EOS-M / Re: How do you carry your EOS-M?

for the full kit...



That looks like a pretty elegant solution.  What is that bag and where did you get it from?


I'm not a fan of sling bags. I used a Lowepro Slingshot AW 100 exclusively (and extensively--for two years) with my T2i and never really bonded with the bag. Walking with a sling bag is fine, but getting gear in and out of it, storing it, etc. is a PITA. YMMD, but I prefer a shoulder bag.

For toting around (from an earlier post): Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 20. For hanging off my hand, a Gordy:

Reviews / Re: Which camera should I buy for a first timer
« on: August 11, 2013, 03:54:38 PM »
Another +1 for the T3i. I still have my T2i (even though I invested in a 5DM3) and use it often. The main advantage of the T3i is the articulating screen--which is VERY useful for composing video and stills. For optics, I'd skip the kit lens and get a EF-S 15-85mm IS USM. Great lens plus IS! This combo will make you smile. And Magic Lantern is a must. It's super easy to install and bumps the camera up with a whole range of "high end" features.

Lenses / Re: 40mm f2.8 STM - Lens Hood?
« on: August 08, 2013, 02:25:27 PM »
... The 50 1.8 hood might be an option for more extreme situations (mosh pits and the like).  Can the lens cap be used while the hood is attached? I assume the hood can not be reversed like the bayonet types can be?

I have the Vello ES62 hood (pretty much identical to the Canon version) for the 50 f/1.8 II and it does indeed work on the 40mm.  Yes, the lens cap can be used while hood is attached. And yes, the hood can be reversed.

EOS-M / Re: Portraiture with Eos M & Ef 50mm f1.8...a Short Review
« on: August 06, 2013, 06:27:00 PM »
Ivan, I'm loving your EOS M reviews! Great work and totally informative for those of us enjoying the M experience. I put my 50 f/1.8 II on the M for the first time yesterday and agree that weight/balance wise they are a good match. I also have the EF-M 22mm and the EF 40mm (w/Canon adapter) so your previous reviews were right up my alley. Keep them coming.

EOS-M / Re: How do you carry your EOS-M?

Hmm.  I'm really liking the EOS-M with 90EX acting as master and 580EX II off-camera as slave.  What would be a good bag, not too big, that will fit EOS-M, EF-M 22mm, 90EX, and 580EX II?

I highly recommend Think Tank bags.

I just bought the Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 20. Haven't got it yet (should arrive the same day as my EOS M), but I LOVE all my other Think Tank bags so I'm assuming more of the same goodness. Seems about the right size for what you're asking.

[bump] I got the Think Tank MM 20 and my EOS M kit (with the complimentary 90EX!!). The bag is perfect for my needs. It will comfortably hold the camera w/22mm lens and wrist strap attached, Canon lens adapter, 40mm pancake lens, speedlite 90EX, iPhone, several memory cards, extra battery, my wallet and car keys.

BTW, for those who like Black Rapid straps: I have a Black Rapid SnapR 20 bag that I use when I carry my G11. The EOS M w/22mm and pinch lens cap fits into it, but it's a very tight squeeze. The strap, on the other hand, detaches from the bag and has male and female clip ends, a slider unit like on the bigger BR straps and a small version of the fastenR that screws into the cameras tripod mount. It's like a mini RS-7! And it fits into the Think Tank MM 20 along with everything else mentioned above.

Regarding the large flash unit question, I don't own a 580EX II, but my 430EX II will easily fit in the MM 20 along with the camera if I move one of the dividers and tilt the flash's head to the forward position.

Technical Support / Re: My 5D Mark III most likely have cancer
« on: July 23, 2013, 09:55:01 PM »
So, I bought my 5D Mark III in June 2012...
Well, moths passed by, and in december, right before I was going to Africa for a documentary shoot, me and the crew decided to try out what camera system we should use....

It was moths! Feckin' hell, I never would have thunk it.

WHY do YOU think Magic Lantern are trying to squeeze out a larger dynamic range

Because they can! Rock on ML!
