Third Party Manufacturers / ENELOOP ????
« on: December 18, 2014, 12:21:33 PM »
Dear teachers and dear friends.
Yes, After I open the great link " Panasonic/ Eneloop" from Our friend  Mr. Velo Steve, and the question are come to my low brain.
The question , Sir/ Madam :
Eneloop = Long time ago  made by Sanyo ( Until ??), Now Made by Panasinic, which made 3 level of Eneloop.
1) Eneloop ( Standard) = 1,.2 V., 2000 mAh = 2100 Life Cycle.
2) Eneloop Lite  = 1.2 V., 1000 mAh, 3000 Life Cycles.
3) Eneveloop PRO,  = 1.2V., 2550 mAh., = Only 500 Life Cycle.

Yes I have Sanyo/ Eneloop 36 AA. for 7-8  years and love them, use them ( Rotate Them) with out fail, But These Sanyo Eneloop = 1900 mAh---After 7-8 Years usage = That might be the end of Life Soon, Although I Check in after recharge battery complete = 1.5 V. (by slow charger unit).
Now The question are, After the great ones die, Which Kind/ Level of New Eneloop that I should buy ?
The Standard, Lite or PRO Type  of Eneloop ??
= For my dear 4 Canon Flashes 550 EX, 580 EX, 580 EX II and 430 EX II+ 3 youngnuo yn565exii

Thanks you, Sir/ Madam

Lenses / Question Sir/ Madam.
« on: December 10, 2014, 01:21:58 PM »
Just one question to my dear teachers and dear friends.
Why canon Company not just Do EF 24 MM F/ 2.8 STM Pancake  for Canon Full Frame Cameras( Similar to EF 40 mm F/ 2.8 STM, Pancake)---BUT why they just do EF-S 24 MM and sell us now ?
No, It not make sense to me, EF Lens can use all Canon EOS Camera bodies and Canon can sell more of this EF Lenses, BUT Only EF-S can use with Small Sensor EOS Cameras only.
Yes, I will buy EF-S 24 mm Pancake Lens and use with  Canon extention tube with my 1DS, and 5D MK II.
Thanks you, Sir/Surapon

Technical Support / QUESTION ABOUT RECHARGABLE AA BATTERIES.
« on: December 06, 2014, 10:27:00 AM »
Dear Teachers and Friends.
Yes, I have so many NIMH AA Batteries by Sanyo Eneloop ( 40 of them) about 6-7 years for all my flashes, and never fail + super happy man, and rotate for use  and recharge all the times.
The Big question that I want to ask  = How  long( Minutes) that I must leave the Batteries in the charger, after It complete Charge Light Come on ( Green Lights)= To get 100% charge ?

Past 6-7 years, I  let it continue charging for 30 more minutes, after the green light on = Wrong method ??

Thanks you Sir/ Madam.
Have a great weekend.

Illness start to ruin my Feeling again, BUT after I see the Chart Below---My, Low Tech Brain tell me that= Yes, The New Model is better at 400 mm---BUT for me that I not a birds/ Wild Life Photographer ( Who shoot long distant 2-3 time per year) and not worth it.
