« on: September 13, 2014, 12:45:59 PM »
Hi guys,
Quick questions for those owning 85L II, 135L and 70-200 f2.8 IS II.

1. Is there room for 200mm f2 IS II to blend in?

2. In what situation do you pull out the 200mm f2 IS II?

3. Did you sell any lenses after 200mm f2 IS purchase? Why?

Thanks in advance

EOS Bodies / Canon 5D 4 & 1DX II @ Photokina?
« on: August 31, 2014, 08:29:03 PM »
Photokina is right around the corner. Nothing on 5D 4 and 1DX II? No rumors, nothing... ::)

Keep in mind, I DO NOT get pay for what I'm about to say. Just want to share some thoughts on the camera product that might help other photographers.

Few weeks ago, my 1dx screen got bumped into Canon 400mm f2.8 IS II lens collar foot. The impact was strong. The screen protector from Expert Shield did a GREAT job protecting my 1dx screen.

See photos: http://dylannguyen.smugmug.com/Expert-Shield-Screen-Protector/

I would highly recommend Expert Shield screen protector to everyone. GREAT JOB Expert Shield.

Software & Accessories / Apply Loctite to RRS foot replacement?
« on: July 20, 2014, 04:30:26 PM »
Hi guys,
I recently picked up RRS foot replacement for my 400mm. RRS recommends Loctite 242 to secure it. Do you use any Loctite on your foot replacement?



Software & Accessories / DxO Optics Pro 9, Elite Edition
« on: June 29, 2014, 02:04:38 AM »
Most of my photos are indoor & low light. I'm thinking about DxO Optics Pro 9, Elite Edition as PP software(never use DxO before). I'm a LR user.

For those using DXO, can you guys share your thoughts on this Vs LR5?

Thanks in advance,


Software & Accessories / 1DX screen protector
« on: June 18, 2014, 02:03:08 PM »
I'm looking for 1DX screen protector. Thin and high quality will be great. Have any good suggestion guys?

I like XO skin. They no longer in business.


Hi guys,
Would this be enough power to drive two Canon 600EX-RT?

FAST recycle time really got my attention, plus compact, Up to 1400 Full-Power Flashes(I'm good with 1000ish if recycle time still within 1sec at lower power level)


What do you think?

Hi guys,
Any thoughts on this flash diffuser? It looks clean.



Canon General / When do you know you have enough camera gear?
« on: April 26, 2014, 05:52:41 PM »
I thought I have enough cameras and lenses to shoot most situation. Last week, I even talked myself out of buying the Canon 600mm f4 IS II. It should be a happy moment for not spending $10K on a single lens that doesn't get use often right?

Well....it's not that easy. I saw this photo, posted by Neuro: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=9791.120

I'm now heading to flash photography. I'm not sure what will come after flash?

Wish me luck guys ;)

Hi guys,
Have you ever try this B&W filter before? To have option from 1-5 exposure reduction is quite unique. I'm worry it might affect the IQ. I always have positive experience with BW, but haven't try this yet.

I'm guessing that object helps to line-up smaller target
