Some samples. Both at F3.5, one tilted down 3 degrees, one tilted up 4 degrees.

Distance from lens to box was approximately 25 cm. Height above the table approximately 20 cm.

Hi,

I am about to upgrade the firmware on my 1DX.

Has your lock up problem been fixed?

Beautiful shot.

I tried something similar with 8-15 mm fisheye, but I had too much light pollution from Margaret River (WA) Town nearby.

Keep up the good work

Hi,

it is also important to have colour accurate lighting to evaluate your prints.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1DX Does not wake up
« on: April 01, 2013, 08:13:44 PM »
I only have that problem (sometimes) when focus is set to AI servo and shooting set to high speed.
I do not have the problem with focus to "one shot" and shooting to single shot

Macro / Re: canon 100L+tubes+2x converter ?
« on: March 21, 2013, 03:32:32 AM »
On your question:
Does anyone know the magnification with the tubes on a 100L lens 2:1 ? or more?

The magnification factors depend on the focal length of the lens and the length of the tube, it is explained on this site:

Macro / Re: canon 100L+tubes+2x converter ?
« on: March 20, 2013, 07:28:26 AM »
I have tried :
1DX, 100L, combined with kenko 12 and 20 and  36 and 2XIII.
The only way that I could work with this combo was on a tripod and using Helicon software for the focussing and image stacking.
Focussing by hand is next to impossible with such a  limited DOF.
I will post some images later, comparing the 100L as is and with the combo.

Hope this helps

And the pics. The shell is approximately  8*3 mm in size

This was the main intent of my post: to warn potential buyers that this is an issue on wide angle lenses.
I have the same filter on my 70-200 F2.8L II and it works great.

Lenses / green color cast with hoya 82 mm UV & IR filter on 16-35
« on: March 03, 2013, 12:35:18 AM »
Hi,

I am rather disappointed with the HOYA 82 UV IR filter on the 16-35. There is a very clear green color cast in the corners.

The slim UV filter that I have as well does NOT have this problem.

At 205$, this hurts.

Settings, 16-35 F2.8 L @16 mm, 1DX, F2.8, iso 250, 1/6400.

Stopping down helps, but even at F9.0 it is still visible
