It's been a while since I do macro.... even longer since I last played with focus stacking... So these 2 are from years ago.

Both with 100L

EOS Bodies / Re: The Always Hidden Camera at the World Cup

What I'd like to know is why no one on the sidelines is asking this guy why he's hiding his camera. Doesn't anyone know who the camera man is, and contact him for a few questions??

Maybe not at that moment...

Lenses / Re: DigitalRev review of the new 16-35 L IS
« on: July 04, 2014, 11:02:12 AM »
I find their videos amusing and fun.  For example, in this one Kai was making a reference to Luis Suarez.  Did I get a look at the new lens in action?  Yes. And then we saw some examples of IS and some images.  That's good. Is it the end all, be all review? No.   I would read other reviews and watch other videos.  Everything doesn't have to serious 100% of the time. I like what DR does.

Amusing and fun... I think that is what they are actually going after...  not serious, factual review...
Though they videos used to be better with Alamby writing their scripts..

I had a student plan for £15.88 a month, at the end of 12 months it automatically went up to about £22 a month.

Well, that's a nice icebreaker with Adobe Customer Service.

Technical Support / Re: 5D3 Focus Screen Replacement - Alignment
« on: June 20, 2014, 04:17:13 AM »
I've never sent my 5D3 for service before because since 1 Jan 2013, Canon charges you for sensor cleaning (warranty or not), and I've never had any problem anyway.

Recently, there's some dots visible through the viewfinder. They does not affect the images, but are very annoying. I checked. It's not on the eye-piece, but inside and I'm not comfortable touching anything inside, so I sent in for service.

A few days later, a Canon technician called and said that they've cleaned the dots, and they will be replacing the focusing screen because there's a scratch. But I have to wait another week for the parts.

I decided to collect the body since my  family reunion weekend was coming up and sent-it again when the parts arrived, and I did.

I just got mine replaced by Canon 3 days ago for free.  :)

Under warranty?

My 2yrs warranty expired last April.

Does warranty cover focusing screen?

9.99 USD means something about 13 EUR (60% more) here in Europe. Talk about fair pricing :(

I'm paying MYR29.99 (no additional local tax). That's about USD9.28 at today's rate.
