EOS Bodies - For Video / Canon 6D video feed to projector?
« on: November 24, 2013, 12:32:42 AM »
I want to feed video directly from my 6D to a projector for a club meeting and may also want to record the videos for our website.  Have not done much video but assume the EOS software will manage this interface thru wifi into my mac laptop and then usb into the projector?  Any tips or "watch out fors" here?  I did some searches on this forum and came up empty handed. Thanks for any advice.

Maps module is coming up "Offline" - my other internet access/applications are working fine, my download speed is 85 mbps, upload is running normally at 10 mbps - running on mac mini with Mountain Lion.  Anyone have any experience fixing this or have suggestions ?  I know I have gps data on the files, but when I click from coordinates or activate the Maps module, it shows offline ?

Thanks for any ideas.

Software & Accessories / Circular Polarizer + step-down ring ok ?
« on: July 29, 2013, 08:12:24 PM »
Want to get a 77mm polarizer filter (B+H Circular MRC coating) and want to be able to use it on my 67mm lenses.  I understand stepping up is a possible problem (vignetting), so going this step-down route.  I haven't done any size adapting and want to buy a good filter with multiple size usage (may also get a 77-58 step-down to replace my lower priced 58 Tiffen polarizer, as well).  Also have heard of "sticking" filters, so should I also get a filter wrench ?  Thanks for any advice/suggestions.

EOS Bodies / Exposure bracketing on Canon 6D ?
« on: January 20, 2013, 10:41:22 AM »
I'm getting ready to put an order in for the 6D kit now that the "special deal" is on again.  One of my needs is for HDR processing, but it's not clear to me what the AEB capability is for the 6D and whether it's flexible and broad enough.  Here is a copy of a section of the Canon specs - It appears that AEB is limited to 3 exposures in 1/3 to 1/2 stops (+/- 2.5 stops ??), while the last line mentions number of bracketed shots up to 7 ??  I'd like to over/underexpose up to +/- say, 4 or 5 in seven exposures - can I do that with AEB or must it be manual only ?
And, if by manual they mean user sets the exposure for each shot, why does item (1) limit the stops and increments ??

Exposure Compensation

(1) Manual : ±5 stops in 1/3- or 1/2-stop increments

(2) AEB : ±3 stops in 1/3- or 1/2-stop increments

* Manual exposure compensation and AEB can be combined.

* The AEB shooting sequence will be standard exposure, underexposure and overexposure. With the self-timer, three continuous shots will be taken regardless of the current drive mode.

* The number of bracketed shots: 2, 3, 5, or 7 settable with a Custom Function.

Thanks for any clarifying advice.

Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Depth of Field calculators
« on: January 16, 2013, 11:37:49 AM »
Anybody have any experience using one of the DOF calculators for iPhone/iPad ?  Such as the "Simple DOF Calculator" or "Depth of Field calculator" in the iTunes App Store ?  I know I can manually preview DOF in camera, but it would be nice to review a calculated field prior to selecting lens and/or apertures.....

Also, I assume I have to convert the focal length of a lens on my APS-C camera to the effective length when inputting data to a calculator (such as inputting 80mm as focal length for a 50mm lens on a 1.6 crop factor camera)?

Thanks for any comments/opinions.
