The B+W XS-Pro Digital ND Vario MRC nano filter (http://www.schneiderkreuznach.com/en/photo-imaging/product-field/b-w-fotofilter/products/filtertypes/nd-filters/nd-vario/, with Google translate, http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=de&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.schneiderkreuznach.com%2Fen%2Fphoto-imaging%2Fproduct-field%2Fb-w-fotofilter%2Fproducts%2Ffiltertypes%2Fnd-filters%2Fnd-vario%2F) have started to arrive (unfortunately not in Sweden jet...). But I under if it exist any review of this filter, does it have the X problem (http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=8662.0) that many other variable ND filter has? How is the optical quality? B+W filter is used to be superb...

Thanks in advance!

Canon General / Canon Press Event on August 21, 2013
« on: July 30, 2013, 03:56:26 AM »
Canon has scheduled a press event for August 21st, 2013, http://photorumors.com/2013/07/30/canon-press-event-scheduled-for-august-21st.

I hope for an updated 17-40/4L that is sharp all over…

I must upgrade my backpack, and due to that I live in a small town (with no good equipment stores) in Sweden, I can't try out the backpack before I buy it.

Normally when I carry the 300/2.8L IS II it is mounted on the 5D mk III without the extender. But sometimes I carry the extender mounted, so my question so, will the kit (300/2.8L IS II + Canon 2x extender + 5D mk III) fit mounted in a Lowepro Pro Trekker 300 AW (http://products.lowepro.com/product/pro-trekker-300-aw,2165,16.htm), or do I need the bigger 400 AW (http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Lowepro-Pro-Trekker-400-AW-Camera-Backpack-Review.aspx)? Often I do not carry the 300/2.8 and I think that the 400 AW will be unnecessary large for normal use.

When I measure the kit (300/2.8L IS II + Canon 2x extender + 5D mk III) it is 38.5 cm long and the Pro Trekker 300 AW have a height of 37 cm, but normally that is possible to fit a little bit bigger items in the bag.

EOS Bodies / Canon Europe Offers Two Year Warranty on Pro EOS Cameras
« on: August 31, 2012, 03:24:08 AM »
From http://www.the-digital-picture.com/News/News-Post.aspx?News=2950:

Canon is reinforcing its commitment to high levels of service with the announcement of an additional one-year warranty for its EOS-1D X, EOS-1D C, EOS C100, EOS C300, EOS C300 PL, EOS C500 and EOS C500 PL camera bodies, providing photographers and filmmakers with two years of warranty coverage in total, free of charge.
 
The offer consists of a one-year extension on top of the one-year Standard European Warranty System (EWS), under identical terms and conditions, for a total warranty period of two years from the date of purchase (a proof of purchase and the one-year Standard European Warranty System will be required).
 
The two-year warranty is valid on products originally distributed by Canon within the EU countries plus Lichtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. To be able to claim the additional year of warranty you must have purchased the product in one of these countries.
 
For full details and terms and conditions you can download the warranty leaflet, http://cpn.canon-europe.com/files/services/DVC_Warranty_Leaflet_EN_digital.pdf.

Lenses / Canon 24-70/2.8L II is official delayed - again
« on: August 29, 2012, 03:36:56 AM »
I have asked Roel Lammers (Product Business Developer at Canon Svenska AB) about the delivery for the Canon 24-70/2.8L II and he informs me that it will be another delay. The delivery date is now October… :(

Canon updated the sales start dates for the EF 24-70mm F2.8L II USM lens to early-July, but when do you think it will be available?
