Software & Accessories / Expierience with laminating photo's?
« on: July 29, 2013, 08:26:58 AM »
Does anybody here have experience with laminating their pictures? i saw Fellowes has matte laminating pouches when visiting a school supplies store and the results looked pretty good on the example pictures they had laminated, so I was wondering does anybody have experience in laminating their pictures? I'm considering getting it for making my prints (pixma pro 100) a bit more resistant to the kids when they are pinned to the wall, but I'm wondering if it could create issues with the ink and canon papers.

Lenses / 50 F1.4 durabilty question
« on: July 08, 2013, 04:38:44 AM »
Yesterday, I dropped my 50 F1.4 from about a metre (about 3 feet) onto a hardwood floor (forgot to listen for the click while mounting it) I saw it bounce about twice before coming to rest and the focus system is broken. It works until the camera focuses at infinity and then it can not get out of infinity again.
Now the worst bit is that this is the second 50F1.4 which I have dropped and the previouw one died with the exact same issue.
My question now is, has anybody else experienced this with other lenses or is the 50F1.4 just an incredibly fragile construction and would I be better off with the 50 F1.2 L? (I also have the 50 F1.8 and so wished that had been on the body at the time, but alas, I love the manual focus ring of the 1.4) I also suppose that sending it in for repair would come close to what it would cost new?

Your thoughts and experiences would be greatly appreciated.

Lighting / Would this be original lastolite hilites?
« on: May 05, 2013, 06:05:16 PM »
Hi guys, I've been trying to do high key pictures with the help of normal living room curtains as a kind of cheap option, but I noticed that amazon itself has the lastolite 5x7 hilite background for 90 UK pounds (equivalent to 140 dollars), which is less than 1/3 of the normal 300 pound (450 dollar) price as far as I am aware.
Would there be any chance that these are not the original lastolite products or could this just be a really really weird price setting?
