Hi,

I use the Lee filter holder with TWO slots and attached the Lee 105 CP in front of that.
I find that on a TS 24, I can see the hard edges in the frame. Only after removing one of the two filter slots, I can use the CP without  having problems.

Just a word of warning, I made a BIG mistake in the past !
 I attached a normal 82 CP to 16-35 and then attached the Lee adapter ring to the CP.
It took me forever to seperate the adapter ring from the CP as the front ring of the CP complete "screws" inside the adapter and there is nothing to hold on to. I solved this by using a cloth to put pressure of the actual glass of the CP to get grip and release it from the adapter that way.
I succeeded in the end, but I used some bad language in the process.

Hi,

I use a 1DX with WFT-E6 for still photography and it works fine.

Today I made video with the Rode VideoMic Pro plugged straight into the camera and used the EOS Utility to change camera settings and did a bit of recording.
At editing time I noticed that there is a clicking noise on the audio, about two clicks/second.
I removed the WFT-E6 from 1DX, reshot and the clicking noise is gone

Has anybody experienced this as well?

I just love these birds, they have so much fun and they live in "families", mostly they group at seven to eight birds
1DX, 70-200 F2.8 II, 1.4X, iso 100, F8, 1/250 plus EX-600 flash with Better Beamer

I especially like the second one in the series. You really have captured the frolicking  ;D

Thanks very much !!
I grew up in the Netherlands and moved to West Australia some ten years ago. The wildlife, especially the birds are amazing. Furthermore, the night sky, the Milky Way is just incredible.

I am still saving for a 400 F2.8 or 600 F4.0, just can't make up my mind as a do a lot of sports photography

Photography Technique / Re: How do I get the whole picture sharp?

As mentioned before, focus stacking or using a tilt shift lens will help

Check the website from helicon:

http://www.heliconsoft.com/heliconsoft-products/helicon-focus/

I use it a lot for my macro work and it works!

Not cheap though

I use photoshop CC on Mac and I do NOT have that issue.
Never had problems all the way back to CS5.

No clue what is going on with your setup

Better Beamer for ~35$.
For bird photography in low light, probably the best thing I ever bought

This must be a glitch, I have had excellent support of these guys in the past especially with respect to get it to work with 1DX

Something that is worth mentioning, your health!!!
A lot of people get very sick when hiking in Nepal, but the biggest risk is altitude sickness, it can be life-threatening.
There is an excellent book on this, see
http://www.amazon.com/Medicine-Mountaineering-Other-Wilderness-Activities/dp/0898863317

I know that this a forum about photography, but the risk of altitude sickness, is something that can not be stressed enough. It can happen to anybody, and in general, for some peculiar reason, the most fit people get it!

Anyway, as said before, it it will be a fantastic trip

Ben
