I am looking for a remote release for my 5DIII. I'm trying to decide between the Vello Shutterboss and the Hahnel Giga T Pro II. I'd use it more as remote release than as an intervalometer, but I like having that capability as well. Is either significantly better than the other? I notice that the receiver is often mounted on the hotshoe, but I'm assuming it doesn't have to be when a flash is being used... TIA for your insight!Hmmm I have the Hahnel.

60D and my old Tammron 70-300 - (small easy to pack).
A flock of these birds surrounded me as my wife spent 5 HOURS shopping at the swap meet around the Aloha stadium, thank god I brought my camera. I did some urban birding and saved my sanity.

Thanks - he looks a bit angry though!
Ken and all the others have inspired me to also try out a few of my sunsets. Here you go........
I'm loving what I've seen so far. You have to be prepared, or very quick when the opportunity presents itself.
Nice, especially the second one. What lens did you use?
Still no one answered my question lol. Is it safe to clean the lens and LCD screen with alcohol wipe ?
alcohol should be used sparingly. On glass it should be fine, although I am not sure how the coatings react over long term use. On plastic, alcohol can leach things or alter the plastic, depending on the plastic. Perspex becomes turbid after long term use. Given that one does not know how the plastic of the lens or the body reacts, it's probably better to avoid it. Also, the LCD screen, I am not sure if that is actually glass or plastic.
I have a screen protector on my LCD, so just wipe it with a cloth (and some breath) if necessary.
For the lens elements, first rocket blower to remove dust as much as possible. You don't want to wipe the lens when scratchy dust particles are on it. A brush can help release particles. Only then I use microfiber cloth or clean cotton cloth to wipe, again with some breath if necessary. If there are some persistent grease spots, only then some lens cleaning fluid.
Fine, if you are standing among zebras.I beg to differ. You'd very easily lose the lens then!
yep sometimes it greys it out, try this, before going into apply image, get into the channels panel and pick the A channel(or any single channel) so its the only one visible.Meli,
edit: And yes, both methods are doing essentially the same thing, remove all info of the selected channel, you might want to duplicate your layer first!
from image menu > apply image > bg layer >channel A, set it to subtract (numbers in the side should be something like 2/128Hi Meli, thanks very much.
Alternatively, just fill the A channel with 50% grey
