CamRanger e.g. allows you to grab images from your camera to your iPhone/iPad. Then you might synch them with DropBox or even iCloud...
I don't think Canon will spent any efford on this idea, though nice to have.
WiFi might be standard soon (not on magnesium alloy bodies) and onboard tools to synch might help to upload them somewhere...

A couple of days ago the EF 100mm 2,8 L IS USM Macro was on sale @Amazon for 719€. With 100€ cashback I ended up spending 619€ - a real bargain!  :D
It's such a wonderful lens. Congrats to this purchase.
Thanks a lot!  ;)

Lenses / Re: Is the 16-35 L II worth its price?
« on: June 09, 2013, 02:33:43 PM »
Hey, could someone please help me determine the production date of this lens? It's the 16-35L II I'm about to buy used, but I can't figure how to read the code:

Thanks a lot!

Seems the date code on this lens is: UA0810 (?)

According to http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Canon-Lenses/Canon-Lens-Aging.aspx this lens was produced August 2012 or even 1986. ;-)

Same thing going on in Germany!


Guess I'm pulling the trigger on the 24-70 2.8 II.  ;)

Software & Accessories / Re: Which cloud storage solution?

Just came across this:


10GB for free
unlimited storage would be $99/year (currently $69/year) or $10/month.

Haven't tested it yet. So for the moment I can't say how fast it is, but it does sound good.

i don´t know how they manage to survive with all the competition from media markt, saturn and co. but i guess they will not last much longer.
they are more expensive and they don´t offer support that´s worth paying a bit more.

My preferred shop around the corner (http://www.fotomeyer.de/) has actually great deals and pricewise they can compete with the majority of the online dealers. A year ago I payed for my 70-200 about 50 Euros more then the best online deal available at that time.
They do also rent some gear. But still I'm missing something bigger here in Germany, something comparable to lensrentals.com or such.

See here for 82 ND


Wow! A 82mm B&W. I guess I was then told wrong...

One thing that would be good to know is: does anyone have any recommendations for a 10 stop ND filter for an 82mm thread, e.g. for the 16-35mm L?  I couldn't seem to find them when I looked a while ago.

Actually I was looking for the same thing and came across the Heliopan ND filters. Seems like B&W doesn't offer ND filters bigger than 77mm.

This should be the one...

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 1D X - HDR First frame always shaky
« on: January 08, 2013, 11:09:28 AM »
It is indeed the Image Stabalizing! I tested some more images today and when the image stabalising is switched off, the first frame is fine, but when it is on, I get camera shake... I know this sounds like exactly the opposite of what should be working, but it seems the IS doesn't like it when the lens is beign held still by a tripod  ;D

Ehm, no offense... But again some basics....  ;)

50 1.4 USM < have

Guess he's using the 5D3 review as a template.  ;)
Makes it easier to replace specific content and adjust certain parts instead of writing a complete new review.  ;D
Maybe lack of HTML knowledge or whatever... hahahaha...
I still don't get it how he could publish a non-final version! Instead of kudos he's getting laughter now...
Oh well... It's KR, so no kudos in any case i guess. ;)

The sad truth is that you will be owning more than one camera bag,its just the way it is,I would say get the Fastpack 350 and it hold all the lens you have shown plus my 7D cw grip or one of my 1D series camera but the 70-200 f2.8L is mounted on camera with lens hood reversed and the lens hood for the 16-35 is in the top compartment inside its lens pouch.
Its the pack that I use the most despite having a larger (Compu Trekker Plus AW)backpack and shoulder bags,the 350 have a low profile look to it as well as ways to hide and tuk away the access zippers and the waistbelt,once you hide the zippers under the top flap its not easy for a someone to access the zippers in a flash.

This is exactly what I finally got. The Fastpack 350 arrived yesterday.  The gripped body with the attached 70-200 fits precisely. And there is still space for the 50mm 1.4, the 16-35, my flash and an additional lens (upcoming 24-105). I do like the laptop compartment very much. For now it's quite perfect to have the whole equipment in one backpack when travelling. The top compartment is also really nice.
I did realize though that this won't be my last backpack or bag. There will be situations I simply won't need all my gear and therefore a smaller backpack would be quite nice, e.g fitting my body plus 2 lenses only.

@all: Thanks for sharing your experiences...
