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

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

Thanks so much, Surapon!

The viewfinder is an old-school optical one, which I have used before. If you compensate for the parallax it is fine. The only issue I had was mounting a filter to the lens, which is about a 49.5mm thread.
Small sensor, but enough image-enhancing technology that the output is great. It also has a silent mode, with no shutter noise or lights at all.

I will be going to Vegas for the first time, in late March. What is the weather like then? And any recommendations for street photography there?

Very beautiful images, Surapon. Ingenious flash system!

This is the stuff I read this forum for; thanx to all who share their knowledge!

Love my Fuji X10. Versatile, great quality, cool retro looks. Have it all pimped out with a leather half-case and a soft release. Fun camera; nice for traveling light and/or very unobtrusive street photography.
Kinda big for a pocket, but rides well in my Think Tank Retrospective5, which I use as a purse.

Great lists!

Along with some of the mentioned goodies I try to bring some gaffer's tape, either in my bag or wrapped around tripod legs. Handy stuff.

+ 1 on the above comments. Buy a very fast USB3 reader, and don't go through a bus.

I use a Lexar LRW300U and it's been great.

It is generally advised to power down when you are changing lenses, because the sensor maintains a charge while on and can attract more dust. And, sure, you should cap the back of the lens before you chunk it in your bag.

But, you know, I have a drawer full of lens + sensor cleaning goodies. So long as I avoid physical damage to the glass, I can clean it all up later, and not miss any shots. 8)
