Third Party Manufacturers / Lee Little Stopper Filter
« on: March 05, 2014, 12:07:49 PM »
I have just ordered a Lee Little Stopper Filter, can't wait to use it.  Has anyone else got hold of one yet ?.  Does it have a blue cast like the Lee Big Stopper ?.

Third Party Manufacturers / Epson R2000, R3000 or 3880 Printer
« on: January 28, 2014, 06:14:16 PM »

I was planning to replace my Epson R1900 printer with the 3880, largely based on lower priced ink per ml.  That's was until I studied the cost of home printing reports from Red River Paper closely


If their calculations and mine are correct the 3380 uses more ink per print than either my R1900 or it's replacement the R2000. 

R1900 116.28 ml of ink for 200 10x8 inch prints at 1440 dpi
R2000 115.26 ml of ink for 200 10x8 inch prints at 1440 dpi
3880 148.92  ml of ink for 200 10x8 inch prints at 1440 dpi

Has anybody else who has moved up from either the R1900 or R2000 found the 3880 or indeed the R3000 that has the same ink set to be more ink thirsty ?.

Lenses / Using Canon 70-300 L without a tripod collar
« on: August 25, 2013, 05:34:02 AM »
Hi again

I'm about to purchase the Canon 70-300mm L, but am not sure if the optional tripod collar will be of much benefit to me.

I will using the lens exclusively on a tripod for landscapes.  I understand that the lens will be better balanced when used with a collar, but doubt this would be a major issue then shooting static subjects.  I am however concerned about the strain that an unsupported 1050g lens will put on my 5D Mark 2's lens mounts.  Does anybody else use this lens on a tripod supported solely by the lens mount ?.  If so have you had any issues in this regard ?.

Lenses / What Lee adaptor ring for Canon 70-300 L ?.

Hi Guy's

I'm planning to purchase the Canon 70-300mm L next week.  It's go to be used primarily for landscape photography on a full frame body.   I currently use a 77mm wide angle adaptor ring to help avoid vignetting at the wide end of my 17-40mm and 24-105mm L's, when using the Lee 100mm filter system.  Obviously i'm going to need a 67mm adaptor ring for my new lens, but is the wide angled version required to avoid vignetting at 70mm ?.  It's twice the price of the standard ring.

Would you prefer the rumored Canon “big megapixel” camera to be in a  EOS-1Dx or a EOS 5D Mark III style body ?.

Software & Accessories / CMYK alternatives to Photoshop
« on: May 20, 2013, 11:24:24 AM »
I have received a batch of calendars from a local commercial printer.  The colors are OK, but do not match the originals, especially the blue's.  I've had similar problems with greetings cards from a different printer.  The problem appears to be that I supply the original files in the RGB color space, but they print using CMYK.

I Raw process using Lightroom 4, with adjustments if necessary being made using Photoshop Elements 10.  Neither of these programs have the option of editing or saving in the CMYK color space.  For more accurate colors  is my only option to purchase the full version of Photoshop (CS6 or CC),  then convert and color correct my images in CMYK mode before sending to the printers ?.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
