Canon General / Re: Screen Protector 1D IV?
« on: October 08, 2012, 08:43:26 PM »
I use ZAGG InvisiShield on all my LCD products, especially my camera bodies.  ZAGG product includes smaller protectors for top and bottom windows, as well as, the main LCD.

All are good, personal preference is ZAGG.

Lenses / Re: Canon 180mm Focus Squeaking

+1 Agree.  Have had 180mm Macro for couple of years, not fast focus, but definitely not squeaky.  Probably a copy issue.

PowerShot / Re: SX50HS

I've been looking at the same camera (the SX40HS, actually) for a little while as a P&S alternative.  How is the IQ?

Just got the same message...verboten!

EOS Bodies / Re: Pls Advise on testing a 7D on CL
« on: August 17, 2012, 04:47:32 PM »
aside from the standard CL caveats of public place, daylight hours, etc., I would recommend taking your own CF card and laptop to review camera output as you ran it thru some basic tests, such as:
EV bracketing
continuous frame (standard and high speed)
AF tracking
varuious settings in all modes
pop-up flash performance
Auto ISO
you may want to take a (single) go-to lens you are familiar with, so you can have something to metally benchmark against.
physical inspection is only part of the game.
counter-offer low...never hurts to try.
good luck!

guess you get what you pay for....  :o
not very impressive.

Nice concept, but unless manufacturers can make a profit, they will not spend the time or money.  All about their return on investment.

Age old question:  what is in it for them?

Lenses / Re: Proper way to set down gripped camera
« on: May 31, 2012, 01:05:13 PM »
Depends on the setup you are using.
If tripod collar, flat on bottom of grip and foot.  If no collar, on left side.  Does not appear to create a discernable amout of stress on the mount.

Love the airport's disclaimer in the article about the security threats.  Not very comforting.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Is this deal too good to be true?

File your claim with eBay buyer protection NOW !!!

Neither of these lenses function well with a teleconverter from Canon or Kenko.

... to be precise: Canon doesn't fit (or destroys your lens),

this confuses me...are you referring to the Canon TC?

How do you think this will effect the future pricing for the 580EX II, as dealers try to get rid of their existing stock?
