Lighting / Re: Bolt Cyclone battery packs
« on: April 14, 2014, 12:50:08 PM »
I'm looking for battery packs to upgrade to from my Cannon CP-E4s. There are some discounts running on the Bolt Cyclone packs through tomorrow and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with them, or any general input. I found them on B&H.



Dear Ripley.
Sorry, I can not help you about the Bolt Cyclone CP-E4, But I  buy SHOOT EP-N4 , Made in China and use for 4 years already = A++ Quality----But They not sell this Brand Any more,  Yes I trust Neewer  too, Yes, Made in China = Less than $ 20 US Dollars each.

Enjoy.

EOS-M / Re: Canon EOS M3 in Q3 of 2014?
« on: April 14, 2014, 12:04:28 PM »
Well, Yes, I will buy EOS-M MK III , Yes, I fell in love with EOS-M MK I about 2 months already, And Skip MK II, and will get MK III as soon as on the Market.
I do not care If canon change only Color-----Well,  If canon give us better AF speed, Less waiting time to shoot the second Photo  and Higher ISO , and that will be the Great Plus for all of us.
Have a great work week for all of my friends.

     Just did my fourth professional shoot (a Bat-Mitzvah) and the results were the best I've yet done.  Haven't yet ventured into off-camera flash, but used a variety of "bounce" tools (simple diffuser, small soft-box and on-flash bouncer).  My camera's a 70D and flash is the 430EX II.
     Are there any other recommended tools/techniques like brackets, etc.?  Off-camera seems like it might be tough while remaining mobile.  Maybe I'm wrong, but I think I might like to stick with on-camera.
     Thanks for any discussion.


Dear Cory.
I use the Off camera flash with flash modification past 7-8 years and very lucky to get the best result for my hobby.

« on: April 12, 2014, 07:58:58 PM »
Dear Friends.
Yes, I fell in love again and again, with EOS-M With 2 EF-M Lenses and  EF -Lens Adaptor-----Only Thing that I Need are the Tube for Macro photo, for EF-M Lens.
"Vello Econo Auto Focus Extension Tube Set for Canon EF-M Mount "---But Back-Order = $ 49.99 US Dollars

nice find! mr surapon should be pretty good with the 22mm i would think. I'm gonna see if i can find some myself now i know they exist.

I've been searching for an EF to EF-M tilt shift adapter but have had no luck yet maybe you could hunt one down ;) :P


Thanks Surapon, there are a few macro extension tubes for the EOS M on ebay too. I couldn't find the vello ones so I just went with a set of Fotga ones. Can't wait to try them out with the 22mm f/2!


Dear Friend, Mr. Zv.
If I were you, We should wait for " Vello Econo Auto Focus Extension Tube " = Auto Focus function for EOS-M------Another brand name = Manual Focus only, and some of them have no electrical contact with our EOS-M camera.
Good luck, And Please report for us to Know too.
Have a great Work Week.
Surapon


The FOTGA's are similar to the Vellos and include the electrical contacts.  You can get them without going to China on eBay.

WOW, WOW, WOW---THANKS dear dcm.
I will order  to day, With out waiting for Back - Order = Similar Cost too.
Thanksssss.
Surapon



Played with the FOTGA extension tubes today.  Metal mount, plastic body - definitely a different feel.  But the camera seems to function just fine with them.  The m/22 gives 0.21x magnification, 0.66x with the 10mm tube, 0.94x with the 16mm tube, and 1.39x with the pair of tubes.  You only have an inch or so of working distance (no filters) so lighting and shadows can be an issue.

Here are some handheld test shots (OOC JPGs) with the 16mm extension and the M/22 at 0.94x magnification.  Will need to work on my technique a bit.  Technique will need some work.  A tripod and a focus rail would help, along with stacking, but kind of defeats the purpose of the small package.


Wow, Wow, Wow, Dear friend dcm.
Thanks for great Macro Photos that you test with your new FOTGA.
I will order 1 set on this Monday too.
Here are the Photos this morning  The Amaryliis Flowers in my  Solarium, EOS-M with EF-M 18-55 F/ 3.5-5.6,  IS MACRO, Hand held shooting,
Enjoy.

PS. I set in AV Mode F= 8.0, ISO = 100, And  Camera will autoset SS = 1/ 125 sec.

Theater, Concert and Event / Re: Let's dance!
« on: April 12, 2014, 03:57:51 PM »
Hi Surapon!
Thanks for your input and nice to meet you! Some fine pictures!
Would you kindly give some details like who is the dancer (if you know), which dance and where taken?
I am still in Solo and looking forward to photograph then Solo Menari festival. BTW, Saturday April 26th is the date of the monthly Nemlikuran performance in the SMKI, the Performing Arts College here in Solo. Usually several groups will be performing, from the Courts, from ISI (Academy of Fine Arts) and sometimes from outside Solo. Starts at 19:00 hours. Any taxi driver will know SMKI. Admission: free.

Also, every Wednesday from 10 to 12 there is a gamelan and dance rehearsal at the Mangkunegaran palace. Admission: free. It starts with a instrumental piece (gendhing bonang) and after that the dancers will perform. The number of dancers rather varies, as many of them are either studying and/or teaching and may have other tasks. For instance the number of male dancers varies from 2 to 6, the number of female dancers varies maybe from 4 to 10, something like.
The gamelan is led by Pak Hartono, who is an excellent teacher, and his wife Bu Umi leads the dancers. Wednesday and Sunday evening (from about 19 to 22:30 hrs.) there is another rehearsal at the Prangwedanan in the Eastern part of the Mangkunegaran palace. Here Pak Hartono also teaches many students from abroad: Japanese, British, American, Dutch, French and even Hungarian. Repertoire: many gendhing bonang and even more dances. Great for music lovers.
The subject of the dances is usually taken from the Mahabharata or the Ramayana, but Panji-stories are also very popular. (BTW these Javanese stories about a prince in love have migrated to Thailand and Cambodia!).
About half of the musicians are Javanese professionals, the other half foreign pupils. The dancers are largely the same who dance Wednesday morning, perhaps with two or three foreigners added.
Kind regards, RobPan.

How does the combination small camera + big lens feel in the hand? Is it odd to hold?
