And All friends who do not want to clean the greasy LCD screen like me--0-I just use Canon Eyepiece Extender EP-EX15 = Less Than $ 20 US Dollars to add on between camera and original eyepiece n= BINGO , + I can see super clear Viewfinder, because of extra lens in the Eyepiece Extender.

Just be aware that the trade off for not having to clean your LCD as often is a 30% reduction in viewfinder magnification.


Thank you, Sir, Dear great Teacher, Mr. neuroanatomist
Yes, Yes, Yes.

I'm quite happy with my RRS leveling base.

+ 100 for me too, Dear Teacher Mr. neuroanatomist .
If I buy another one, I will get RRS Leveling Base, But Now I have Gitzo G. 1321 Leveling Base, Which I use more than 10 years and OK for me, Because I not do Bird Photography any more..
Have A great day, Sir.

I'm left handed and I use my left eye, although I wish I could use my right eye as I'm forever cleaning the greasy marks off my rear screen.

I'm using my right eye, and I still leave greasy marks on the screen. It's just a matter of which upper corner you want to clean.

Dear  Friend Mr. DominoDude.
And All friends who do not want to clean the greasy LCD screen like me--0-I just use Canon Eyepiece Extender EP-EX15 = Less Than $ 20 US Dollars to add on between camera and original eyepiece n= BINGO , + I can see super clear Viewfinder, because of extra lens in the Eyepiece Extender.

BUT  Canon Eyepiece Extender EP-EX15 is design for 5D MK II---Not For 7D MK II, Before you buy, You must make sure that fit in your Camera.

Do you know what your dominant eye is? Do you use your dominant eye when composing through the viewfinder or do you force yourself to use your non-dominant eye in order to try to stimulate the other half of your brain?

Dear Friend , Mr. StudentOfLight .
Well, I use both eyes open and see ( I am Right hand User), I use the right eye  see at the viewfinder fro make sure that the AF spot on the right target, AND  THE MOST IMPORTANT THING = The Left eye on the Most beautiful lady , who just walk pass me, And I will take only 1 mili-second , move the camera, point the right eye and viewfinder to her best spot and press the shutter.
Yes, In the past when I were young, I was the Marksman/ Sharpshooter in my University Team, And I have learn from my Great Teacher ( The Army Sniper) that, When we Aim the target, OPEN BOTH EYES---Never Close one eye, and that make the open eye see the distortion view( Because the squeeze muscle on the closed eye), and we will miss the target.
YES, In another IDEA, Open both eyes for difference functions, and We ( Young man like us, Yes, I am 66 years young) will never miss the beautiful target---Ha, Ha, Ha.
Have a great night, Sir.

EOS Bodies / Re: Big Announcements Coming Next Week [CR3]
« on: January 27, 2015, 03:12:59 PM »
The MOST important factor for Canon to gain ground in mirrorless world is EF adapter to mirrorless. If they can come up with adapter with decent AF speed, better than current ones on the market, I think that will give Sony, Fuji etc... good run.

Enlighten me on why they need an (EF adaptor to mirrorless) "adaptor to mirrorless with decent AF speed"?

In what way does the current EF-EOS M Mount Adaptor affect "AF speed"? And how would you improve it?
Or are you talking about some other adaptor?

For Canon shooters, standard EF and L lenses are as good as gold. These lenses can still be used with EOS-M system with an adaptor, however, AF speed becomes slower.


The adaptor doesn't make AF slower though does it?
It is the EOS M body that has slower AF.  All the adaptor does is pass through the signals, doesn't it? It is just electrical contacts.
I can already put my EF and EF-S lenses on my EOS M.  I don't need a new adaptor for that.
What I need is a new EOS M AF system that focuses them quicker.

I will repeat, in what way does the current EF-EOS M Mount Adaptor affect "AF speed"?  (I am actually interested to know, as I am not aware of it.  Not keen on having to buy another adaptor as well as a new M!)

Dear Friend Mr. lw.
My EF-EOS M Lens adaptor By Canon never slow AF speed for all of my 19 Canon EF- Lenses, and  Tamron + Sigma Lenses----Electrical connection are super fast, not matter 2 inches distant or 10 feet distant. Yes, That are my Observation  since I have EOS-M more than 1.5 years ago.
Yes, I will buy EOS-M III, And EOS 50+  MP. when they on the Market.
Have a great work Week.

Thousand Thanks to My Dear teachers and My dear Friends.
Now, I can understand the difference UNITS of Light per Camera Flash and Studio Flash/ Lights now.
Yes, As Hobby, I do not think I will need 2 of 500W Studio Light = $ 1,200X 2, US Dollars soon, Just Put  1, 2 or 3 Flashes on the 72 Inches Silver/ White Reflected Umbrellas, and That should be enough for Big Group Photos at the longer distant from Flashes.
Have a Great Weekend, Sir/ Madame.

Dear Surapon,

It is good to know that multiple lights even if set together in a single modifier, won't produce the same shadow as a single more powerful head. With multiple lights, you are likely to be able to see as many distinct shadows as thete are flashes. Sometimes it might look wrong and unnatural, sometimes its not a problem. This might not be that bad for large group photos, but might matter for headshots.

Thanks you, Sir, Dear Mr. IMG_0001 .
Your Logic  are Right on The Target About the Shadows of 2-3 flashes in one big umbrella., Yes, Sir, I will try and Report back to you, in next 2 -3 weeks.
Have a great Sunday.

EOS Bodies / Re: 50mp Cameras Coming in March [CR1]

Explanation please? What is a low pass filter in this context? What is it for and if it's necessary, why build a camera without one? Is it the same as an anti-aliasing filter (another term I don't understand...)
Yes, the low-pass filter is the same as AA filter. These filters aims to avoid moiré and aliasing, which occur because of the repetitive format of pixels (all the same size and shape).

In ultra-high resolution cameras with low quality lenses, the AA filter does not lack. But put a razor sharp lens, as Sigma 50mm Art, moiré and aliasing will be visible. I'd rather have an AA filter and not worry about jagged edges and false colors in my images.



Thousand Thanks, Sir, Dear Teacher Mr. ajfotofilmagem .
I have learn some thing new and great knowledge  from you to day , about Low-Pass Filter.
Have a great Weekend, Sir.

Technical Support / No, Not Stupid question, But Question, Sir/ Madame
« on: January 21, 2015, 03:31:04 PM »
Dear Teachers and Friends.
Another question that I do not know and Want to know to compare and Make decision to buy light equipment  in the near Future.
Yes,  The question about Lighting, Sir/ Madame.
Why All Flashes are specify such as = Canon 580 EX  = 58m./ 190' @ ISO 100 ( for the Flash Power, Canon 430 EX II=43M./ 141 ' @ ISO=100, Yes I am Understand that 430EXII is less power than 580EX.
BIG BUT,  The Studio Light/ Flashes Such as Phottix Indra 500TTL power = 500 Watts Studio Strobe or 400 Full Power Flash---Yes, I complete understand of 500 Watts Power of Light.
BUT I do not know how to compare to Camera Flash 58m./ 190' @ ISO = 100----Yes? How many of 580 EX  to be equal 500 Wats Power of Phottix Indra 500TTL ?

Well, Yes, I have so many Flashes in my hand, and Do not want to spend $ 1,200 US Dollars for Phottix Indra 500TTL, If I do not need to buy 10 of  580 EX II.
Thank you, Sir/ Madame.
Have a great Wednesday.

Lenses / Re: Inconsistent reviewing of lenses
« on: January 21, 2015, 03:09:03 PM »
I tend to prefer actual data and properly done tests rather than my or someone else's calibrated eyeball. 
 
I come from a technical job running tests in my lab for clients like NASA, and I'd have lost my job if I did tests like those.  "Real World Targets", meaning a bookshelf with natural and varying amounts and colors of light falling on it, and then comparing other products under almost certainly varying conditions.
 
To properly compare products, they need to be tested under the exact came conditions, which includes light levels and colors. 
 
A sloppy test procedure only causes me to wonder if any of the other parameters were properly controlled.  Maybe the solid tripod was affected by every truck rolling by, that's real world, after all.
 
Most of the online lens testers are limited by funds and test equipment, but some of them at least manage to turn in consistent results.
 
I have no reason to say his results are right or wrong, but I do not trust the test procedure he reveals.


+100 With you, Sir, Dear Teacher, Mr. Mt Spokane.
As my Professional Architect, Yes, I can Use my Eye balls and My Dip stick to test the Strength of Ready to pour Concrete from Concrete Truck  and use the Slump Test Cone to test at the job site too, BUT, I must send the poured  Cylinders of 10 to test in the Lab. for the REAL LAB TEST Strength of Concrete, Before to make my decision  of accept or reject that batch of concrete.
Yes, Sir, Too many Factors at the field to mess up the test by eye balls, such as the great 1200 US DOLLARS Tripods or 59 US Dollars Tripods, Or the Moisture in the air that create the mini-fog/ mini haze that interfere of the quality of Lens in that mili-seconds of the press shutter to recorded the picture.
Have a great Wednesday, Sir.
