EOS-M / Re: Got my new IR eos-m!
« on: June 12, 2014, 09:35:38 PM »
Sounds very cool! I have a lot of fun with my converted 40D. It would be interesting to see how well the M-series lenses play with IR; that could make M a tempting item to buy strictly as an IR camera.

Glad things finally worked out, and thanx for sharing info on LC. I will keep them in mind if this happens to me.

Lenses / Re: 16-35 f/4 IS for infrared?

Well, I have the 24-70 f/4 IS and the 70-200 f/4 IS, both pretty modern lenses, and they play very nicely with my IR converted 40D. So there is some hope that the new 16-35 f/4 will be better than the 2.8 in that regard. Would be hard to be worse, actually.  :-\

I buy camera bags obsessively. I am the Imelda Marcos of camera bags. Each new one will absolutely, for sure, solve all the issues I had with the previous one. I have to hide the old ones from my husband in bins the basement.

Software & Accessories / Re: Microfibre Cloths for Lens Cleaning
« on: May 04, 2014, 09:41:57 PM »
I buy bundles of big "terry-cloth" style microfiber cleaning cloths from the box stores and cut them into small squares. When your lens or filter gets grubby, just blow/brush all grit from the surface, breathe on the glass, and wipe it down with the microfiber scrap. They are cheap enough to treat as single-use cloths.

Now, for extra stubborn greasy smears I use a LensPen.

I love my 24-70 f/4 IS for street shots. Very sharp, versatile, unobtrusive, super IS, and a neat cheezy 0.7 macro for the little stuff.

Beautiful shots, Surapon!

My sister's American Bulldog "Guido". I was careful to use my 135L so that the drool would be really sharp.

Another vote for Hejnar clamps; very, very nice products. One of their AS clamps rescued me from RC2 hell on a Manfrotto 054 ballhead.

That looks like an awesome book. Thanx, Neuro!

You may want to look at Think Tank. Very well designed and ruggedly built.

Very beautiful, Surapon!

Canon General / Re: Are Metal Mounts Better Than Plastic?

It's all about sample size. My experience, with a lens that I use maybe 4 times times a year, even 20 busy pros experience with that lens using it every day, are statistically meaningless compared to a huge rental organization's repair data on that lens.

Wouldn't "all metallic construction" be kinda hard to see through? And those all metallic circuit boards would be tricky to engineer.
