EOS Bodies / Re: 5D III error 80 and failure to release shutter
« on: April 04, 2012, 11:09:53 PM »
i've only used genuine canon batteries in mine so far
if I put the kenko TC on the camera the 00 error comes up and wont clear when i put any lens on until the battery is removed and replaced
kenko say their testing show their stuff works fine on the mk3
I'm taking mine back again this arvo, I just have to wait in the que for a replacement

mediocre images.

again far too generous

i'll dig out some shots, the sweet 35 is sooo much nicer to use and the 35mm focal length is handy too
it has the manual aperture ring at the front which is better than those silly drop in aperture discs.
only annoying thing about it is no AF confirm chip so exif reports 50mm it would be nice if it just had an AF confirm chip like the edmika adaptors for FD lenses that at least report correct focal length max aperture and gave AF confirmation.

Get the 16-35 instead.

I am considering this...

Do you think it's worth the extra $?

Have you used both the 17-40 and 16-35?

absolutely! make sure its the 16-35 mk2 though
this lens wide open is usefull for so much more than boring ol landscapes
if you can afford the different you wont regret it
bear in mind the 82mm filter size too makes filter cost more spendy and you have to get the ultra slim versions to avoid vignette issues

if you have an iphone and want to do unlimited HDR exposures on the 5Dmk2 try this
it works really well. much much cheaper than a promote



The guy generally ticks me off for his blatant and rather constant bias.

not to mention him stating many things as absolute fact that are just plain wrong

bosman if you like bokeh you need to try out the lensbaby sweet 35
12 circular blades its a bit soft wide open at f2.5 but stop it down to f3.5 or f4
and wow, the DoF is very different but talk about epic blur. manual only but its a fun little lens

i'd really like to have the ability to assign any other function to the rate button such as enable / disable bracketing ie hold the rate button down and scroll the wheel and it automatically dials in the brackets as the 1D have done since the dawn of digital

wow you went pretty easy on him, I was expecting both barrels...

Lighting / Re: If you have a 5DIII and the Phottix Odins....

not only that but 580ex2 will fire at 1/8000 sec with HSS turned off at full power

How is this even possible? Is this a documented functionality of the Odin? I ask because even if you mount the 580exII directly on the camera you won't get full-power at 1/8000.
i'm guessing the odins have a built in time control of the release of the flash burst which is around 1/20,000 sec for the actual burst of light

Software & Accessories / Re: Short tripod for close to ground shots
« on: April 04, 2012, 06:29:56 PM »
Hello all,

Seeing how spring is here and there's a lot of little plants I've been photoing for fun, I've come up with a new want - a low to the ground tripod.  My current one works fine for most things knee high up, but I'd like something that has the body sit a few inches off the ground so I can take some longer exposure with narrow aperture to get a better depth of field.

Any suggestions?


get a gorilla pod they are super handy i always carry 1 or 2 around
they can be really neat for setting speedlights up in odd places too

for very close to ground shots you can spread the legs right out so the camera is only an inch or 2 above the ground
