Software & Accessories / Re: Good GND filter to go with new Lee system
« on: March 01, 2013, 08:23:17 PM »
try www.2filter.com they say as a byline that they only sell quality products and wont carry stuff that doesnt cut the mustard. service desk is great too! I got a set of lee grads W/holder and a 9 stop for under three. they seem to work well for my water blur and landscapes but i'm not very experienced in that style of shooting.

I've had great experiences with Adorama books. Check 'em out.



Wifi is super useful! Today I did a studio shoot of some family photos, their first question after a photo is taken, "Can I see the photo?" ... My answer: Why yes! Yes you can! Here's a monitor plugged to my laptop that is using my phone as a hotspot so I can remotely download pics to my laptop and for you to preview! Tadaa! take a pic, and voila! on monitor. Each time!

Wifi is super useful, group photo on new years eve with friends, set camera on tripod, aim roughly, check on phone everyone's okay and press the shoot button while the phone is behind my back. Easy! I've been wanting this feature for almost a decade.

Sure! The phone app is a bit slow at times, and the features are limited. But seriously guys! You're photographers! Throw your camera on M and the phone app has all the basic things. If you need more fancy features then just use a laptop.

 I just plug an old router into the wall when I use my laptop and it makes my eye-fi card way faster than any phone could as a hotspot. this is a good alt if when shooting your plunged into the wall anyways.

this wortks for me "the iphone user" lol

I had the same problems with my purchase of FoCal. those guys across the pond were the worst with tech response. I just flat out asked for a refund of my money and received it!

If you shoot mainly portraits also look into Zeiss. there manual focus only but give a great look wide open

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Cannot Keep Screwing It's Customers Over

wow, with that reasoning ( from OP) I should NOT have bought my 5D3 to shoot the gigs I did ( which for an event and wedding photog like myself, the best cam available is needed most times) and wait to save money so that I can buy TWO pro bodies.


My math says that from July til now the 7 jobs kinda paid for it over 5 times.

if your in a pinch and can lug the gear use EOS utility. it has all the controls for intervametor in it. problem is that it has to connect to a laptop in the field. I think it also controls video.
