Lenses / Re: Rear Gelatin Filter Questions
« on: February 11, 2015, 11:25:16 PM »
I have cut gel filters for my Sigma 15mm from 3" Wratten squares. I avoided depositing any [non-removable] fingerprints on the gels by wearing nitrile gloves, but still managed to scratch them while using the supplied metal square as a template. Found the process to be an extreme PITA, and have wondered since why no one seems to sell them precut and packaged.

Has anyone reported on how 1.3.3 treats 3rd party batteries?

EOS-M / Re: Why do I keep my Eos M?

I have 2 M's - one which I purchased as a backup for my 5D3, [and is sitting in a bin now that I have a 6D], and one which is converted to 590nm infrared. The IR body, with 22mm lens, goes with me on all my trips. Perfect adjunct for travel, especially for midday when the light is terrible for anything else. Still hate the arms-length focus/compose thing, but can really recommend an IR conversion for a little-used M.

Hope it doesn't mess with 3rd party batteries. >:( I am pretty fond of my many Wasabis, and they currently are supported.

I'm a bit late to this thread...

I have a quartet of much-loved Wasabi batteries for the 5KMkIII and have resisted upgrading from 1.2.1 because I was wary of what might happen.

Do the Wasabis work seamlessly (i.e. without error messages) with 1.2.3?

My Wasabis are treated like my Canons under 1.2.3.

I purchased the 16-35 f4 L when it first came out.  I've been absolutely blown away by this lens.  It is wicked sharp and the IS works splendidly.  I'm getting blur free images hand-held at 1/40.  For landscape photography I need nothing else.

+1 on the 16-35 f/4L. Best all-around landscape lens I've ever used. I dumped my 2.8 version of this and never looked back.

I have used LifePixel and Kolari Vision and can recommend them both. They have really helpful [and much-needed] info on their websites, too.

My best tips for IR success would be to be patient, expect a pretty righteous learning curve, and to double-check your focus.

Thank you for posting this, Tinky. I was not familiar with Jane Brown, and should have been.

If the fragment is inside the glass you should certainly return it for a warranty repair; I can't imagine they would have an issue with that.

Technical Support / Re: Question about cleaning something off of sensor.
« on: October 19, 2014, 10:19:06 PM »
I wet-clean my sensors whenever they need it, but something like tree sap might prove to be difficult to remove completely. The methanol you dampen the swabs with should dissolve the sap, but could leave a smeary mess. As others have said, take it to a lab and let them use a pile of their $wabs to clean it up.

Lenses / Re: Review: Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS by Dustin Abbott
« on: September 29, 2014, 06:45:53 PM »
Terrific review, Dustin. Thanx so much for putting forth the time and effort to produce a review that can really be trusted.
Another plus for this lens is that it plays very nicely with infrared, unlike the 2.8, which is horrible. I traded off my 2.8 for it primarily for that reason, but the f/4 is so good I've been using on my unconverted body all the time.

The B+W 77mm Slim MRC Filter XS-Pro works for me.

I have discovered that just tucking a leg of my TVC-24L into my Think Tank belt works fine. If you keep it behind your hip it doesn't hit your legs, and is easily accessible. Would get uncomfortable with something a lot heavier, tho.
