Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / PIXMA PRO-100 with Rag Paper Results
« on: September 02, 2013, 11:57:03 AM »
In the past I have had issues with Canon Printers using dye based inks giving very soft results on Moab Entrada Rag papers.  I was wondering if anyone out there has used the Pro-100 with any of the 2 sided Rag Papers.
Now that they are on special I am thinking about getting one.

Lenses / Promaster UV filter quality or lack of it.
« on: February 15, 2013, 01:46:40 AM »
Today I purchased a Promaster UV filter for my Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM.
After taking about 70 or 80 shots with it at various distances and settings I have decided that the filter degrades the sharpness of the photos to an unusable level.
Is it just hit and miss with these filters or are they consistently poor?  I paid about $36 for the unit.
With the lens in place the camera will auto focus but the image is just severely degraded.  Manual focusing wont' resolve the issue and there isn't enough f-stop in the work to make this filter sharp.
If Promaster wont' cut it then what brand should I be looking at?
