Technical Support / fungus & silica gel
« on: December 25, 2014, 10:30:58 PM »
Hi All, a question for people in the know! Is it ok to use silica gel on stored lenses? I store all my bodies and lenses in a pelican case, there is conflicting info on what is best practice! Most recommend to frequently expose your lenses to air and sunlight to prevent fungus!?

Third Party Manufacturers / 40-50mm for a7r
« on: December 17, 2014, 05:50:05 AM »
Hello All, just after some opinion/advice for my a7r, I'm looking for a 40-50mm lens with a fast aperture around 1.4 it can be an old or new lens since I will only be using it in manual focus with the appropriate adapter so any mount will be ok just want something that's not to expensive but reasonably sharp especially wide open, any suggestions? Even a vintage lens, but there's so many I'm not sure which one to get :-\ thanks...

EOS Bodies - For Stills / clown* photographer
« on: October 23, 2014, 09:26:30 AM »
Hello fellow peoples,
I was at Melbourne Airport a few weeks ago photographing commercial aircraft coming in to land with a strong northerly wind. When I saw this clown* with his ipad trying to photograph a 777 coming in too land at 150kts, his ipad had no chance but he was convinced of getting a good shot! I said hello, we chatted a bit and I then suggested that a proper camera would do a better job!! He then started talking about photography and how he used to own a studio and do weddings and stuff, but all you need nowadays is a iPhone/ipad, his words this guy had no idea! I strutted back to my car and opened my boot/trunk and pulled out my 1d4 with 70-200IIL(hood attached) strolled back and started shooting at 10fps and showed him what this beast can do!!!!! all he said was nice camera, he stayed for one more landing got in his car and drove off, I haven't seen him again> true story :o...  I think Neuro had a similar experience ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / the canon 100d/sl1
« on: April 17, 2014, 10:22:22 PM »

Hello All, I recently purchased a 100D/SL1, I'm just after an opinion on people who have used this camera?
Do you like it?
Do you hate it?
Worst and best parts, etc?

I personally love it, very small but you get used to it handles just like a slr, love the crop factor on a small form body and it's got a fantastic shutter sound :)
