Indeed. All too easy to forget that!

Although that is a very common phrase I disagree. If that was true we all would be shooting compacts because they would be good enough if we just practiced enough.

It's no guarantee to get great pictures with great gear, it is very easy to shoot cr@ppy pictures with great gear, but there are great limits to lesser gear that isn't possible to overcome.

A small update, my 200 is STILL in service, 22 days (!) and counting. It's shipped from Norway to Sweden for unknown reasons. I have contacted the serviceplace in every way possible, but not one single answer is given, no respons, nothing!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 1D Mark IV with low actuations?
« on: September 23, 2013, 09:36:40 AM »
Are shutters like cars? I mean, a cab that has a thousand times the mileage of a normal car needs much less service and will also last for huge amounts of miles more than a normal car due to the fact that they are being used aaall the time.

Will a shutter that sees much use every day, last for more actuations than a shutter that's being used once or twice a week/month, couple of hundred shots a year?

"The only shutters I have ever had replaced are one that I put a thumb through on an EOS 1V film body" That's a big "Oh sh!t" moment right there ;D

My 1d X has passed 55k in a year and I am no pro. Usually 2500 shots is just to warm up to the settings and testing.

My girlfriend had a 40d that saw almost no use, as she borrowed my mk4, I guessed that it would have around 2000 actuations, ran it through EOScount, and it said 7300 something. Every single add over here states, "approx. 10k actuations" so I wouldn't take it to seriously.

I loved my 14, plain and simple. Awesome color and contrast, very straight and great AF even at mfd.

But for landscapes filter use will always be an issue with the 14 and the TS17. While IMO the 17 is by far the best uwa I have ever owned, it's not easy like the 1635 when it comes to filter use.

Technical Support / Re: Why higher end camera underexposes images?
« on: September 17, 2013, 06:54:57 AM »
The higher end camera let's you change it if you don't like something. I have bumped my 0 EV up quite a bit, because I like my images brighter exposed.

I'm sure if I factory reset my camera I won't like it all. The beauty is that I don't have to use it like Canon might have thought I would like to use it.

And the 1d X metering is by far the best I have used.

LOL, I'm a bit of a geek then. I thought that bringing the 200 L to go grocery shopping was something everybody did? You know, because I have seen lots of people do that never.

I have a buddy in Sweden that lives near the coast that is awesome with his sunny landscapes.

Check them out here:


He uses a 5d3 and 1740 with a 10-stop ND, and recently also a grad-nd.

He often uses 10-15 minutes and up to 40 minutes of exposure time.

Lenses / Re: 70-200 Halo issue?
« on: September 15, 2013, 12:43:40 PM »
I can reproduce the effect with my september 2012 produktion 70-200 but it is not by any means that strong.
It is noticeable in VF and on fotos but only when I point my Led Lenser p7 ( that thing has a laser danger sticker on it ) directly into it and focus and zoom so it comes up.
That is so bright that even with a ND X8 in front of the VF it hurts my eyes and I can't really look at it.

You should never ever point a laser into your camera dude! That has been a known source to destroy a sensor in a

This looks like the 200 L. Wonderful mood in this one.

I bought mine last year in october. I do not see this halo effect.
I would say that this person got a defective lens. Recommendation is to bring it back and exchange it.

..only that he has done that 3(!) times already...

Don't know what to say.
I used my lens indoor in a theatershow some weeks ago. I looked over the photos again. There is no such flare as he showed in his photos. My number 89xxxx1957

I never saw it in mine either, but he seems to think the new lenscap-versions are at fault, meaning 2013 edition.

Lenses / 70-200 Halo issue?
« on: September 13, 2013, 05:48:35 AM »
Hi guys,

Anyone else seen this in their 70-200 mk2, seems like the problem is with the new verisons, with the new lenscap?

You can use something like this on your belt (I am not intending to advertise this particular piece or shop, just I bought this a few months back and found the link easily)......


Thanks, I have one like that, mine folds and folds, I like it a lot, but I'll try to find something for my strap for just that one filter.

Sorry, you need for just one filter, then get a fishbomb..... no I am not kidding search FishBomb ...
