Software & Accessories / Photoshop CC Not Connecting
« on: May 15, 2014, 10:36:37 AM »
Is anyone else having trouble using Photoshop CC?  When I try to launch, it wants to connect to the Adobe server to validate my license.  But then it says the Adobe servers aren't working or some such.  This has been going on since last evening (morning here in the California desert).  I'm "chatting" with Adobe now.  Umesh has now transferred me to Vismay.  Of the Adobe Technical Support.

The Canon Rumors site is not updating for some of us (apparently those who don't use IE):

        Sorry out of the topic, but a few days ago the same topics are on the homepage CR. Is it just me, or is the site having problems? Always appear the following topics:

        Things to get when you purchase a 600mm?
        Canon 40mm f/2.8 Lens: Thoughts? Reviews? Is it worth getting?
        Canon Suspends Downloading of New C300 Firmware
        Comet ISON = ISOFF?
        Any reason to choose a 7D over a 70D?
        Deal: Everyone Needs a Pancake
        Comparing 16-35 to Nikon 14-24 and Zeiss/Leica primes
        Sony A7-A7R pre-ordered @ 200% bigger than expected
        Handheld vs. tripod with the Great Whites
        Lots of New Lenses Coming in 2014 [CR2]

    I get the same thing and have been wondering about it.  Anyone know?

I get the same thing in Chrome. IE10 works normally.

I'm trying to alert admin (I suppose there are other ways to do that as well  :P).

EOS-M / You Get What You Pay For - Warning for EOS M Adapter
« on: August 06, 2013, 05:09:33 PM »
I received my EOS M with 22mm lens and the bonus Speedlite 90EX from B&H as part of the recent $300 offer.  Since I missed the first wave and had to wait until B&H received additional product, it didn't arrive until July 26th (the day after I departed on a 10 day vacation), so I only started playing with it last night.  (And the 90EX may be good for something, so it IS a nice bonus).  So far, so good.

Being cheap, I didn't spring for the Canon adapter for EF lenses.  For around one half price, I bought one from Mega West.  The good news:  it seems to work as advertised.  The software recognizes the correct EF lens and the lens settings and reports them in Lightroom. 

The bad news (and warning):  my 17-40 L is now permanently attached to the adapter.  The release button (which is supposed to depress the pin, allowing the lens to be rotated and removed) does not depress.

Does anyone have any good ideas on how to get the lens and adapter separated?  I would love to have something left of the adapter to send back to the seller, but at this point I would really just like to have my lens back in operation, even if the adapter is a total loss.  Having learned a valuable lesson, I will spring for the Canon version in any event.
