Lighting / Centon MR40AFC
« on: November 16, 2014, 10:46:53 AM »
I've been given the above ringflash.  I'm assuming that it should work with my 5D3.  Is anybody still using one of these (it probably dates from circa 2000) and can give me any pointers?

Physicists are looking to use the CMOS detector in your phone's camera to detect cosmic rays. Interesting, but they need 1000 inactive phones per square km.  :o Maybe you'd like to help them out?

Just noticed this report on the BBC. The serious issue is that Canon's Pixma priters have a major security flaw, the frivolous part is the hacker exploited it to run Doom. :)

Thought some people would be interested in this! There are discounts for Windows/Linux users, but you'll still have to pay $60/€50. Obviously Corel are going after Aperture users...

Photography Technique / photographing Lyrid meteor shower -advice?
« on: April 17, 2014, 01:18:52 PM »
I'm planning on trying to photograph a meteor shower for the first time. I've checked, and there should be dark moonless skies for the nights of the 22nd and 23rd April (UK).  I have a 5d3 and am planning to use my 17-40 lens. I have a tripod, a Hahnel Giga T Pro II wireless remote, a spare battery and warm clothing!  :) Unfortunately, I won't be able to totally avoid light pollution, but am prepared to just have a go and see what I can do, assuming that there will be some clear skies.

What settings should I use on camera/lens/remote? Any other pertinent advice?
