Software & Accessories / arca swiss Z1 ballhead
« on: August 17, 2014, 03:17:42 PM »
Just bought a new Arca Swiss Z1 ballhead.Very strong indeed,but I found there is some play in the main friction knob.Also it's a bit difficult to use the small minimum friction(thumb) knob for a higher level of friction.Is this normal or do I have a bad copy?

Lenses / 15mm/2.8 fish eye as normal wide angle
« on: January 27, 2013, 10:16:23 AM »
why does a 15 mm fisheye , corrected in ACR,so that the lines are straight,still have a wider angle than a normal 14 mm?
I've made a comparison with 16/35 (II) ,15 mm fisheye, en samyang 14 mm,and I think the fisheye,lens-corrected,is the sharpest.(all shot at 2.8,same white balance)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / eos5m3 registering an AFpoint
« on: January 11, 2013, 08:29:54 AM »
I would like to register the middle AF point in single-point spot AF mode,and use the AF-ON button to start focussing.I use the AE lock button to start focussing any other manually selected AF point.However,the AF area selection mode isn't registered(only the AF point is) but changes to for example AF point expansion,or any other AF area mode you manually select.Is this something for a firmware update? ( and get rit of the blinking too?)

EOS Bodies / why no exposure mode visible in viewfinder eos 5 III ?
« on: September 11, 2012, 05:51:08 PM »
After working with EOS 1 Ds mark I up to markIII for 10 years I've now switched to the EOS 5 mark III.A few differences in handling I find very annoying.
-you can't see which exposure mode you're using in the viewfinder!
-in A.P,S mode,when you lock exposure,you can't see how much you're under/over exposing in your new composition.
-and when switching from A to M mode for example, you'e aperture switches to the last one you used in M instead of the last one you used in A mode.This means that when switching between exposure modes in a given situation you have to adjust more then you would like.
-I also don't really like that the C1,C2,C3 function doesn't remember the changes you make during shooting (e.g..changing ISO) when the camera falls asleep.

My best handling camera ever was the EOS1D markII , best camera the 5 mark III (of course)
