EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Doing Market Research on Medium Format?

645 for MF was/is the equivalent of APS-C, most MF systems were 6x6cm or 6x7cm.

I'm sure this link has been posted before, but you can use a pair of grads to make a reverse grad.

For focus stacking, you could try Magic Lantern

I use Open GPS Tracker and export the track as a.gpx file then use GPicSync to then geotag my images. Both are free and work well (GPicSync tagging both jpegs and CR2 files).

There's a couple of film bodies (EOS5 & EOS30) and a Tamron 28-200 that I haven't used in years. Of the kit that does get some use, it would be the 550EX Speedlight.

Seriously tempting as a street shooting body, whats the AF performance like now with the updates?
If you do, your username will need a slight modification to 'mirrorless' :)

You are very likely to get vignetting on ultra wide angle lenses. Have you considered a filter system like Lee's?

2. Intervalometer - I had the Canon release (only) and it sucks, so I bought the Vello intervalometer and it works perfectly for $30


Dear Mackguyver, I've been thinking about getting an intervalometer and I also don't want to spend a lot on it. Would you mind posting the model number?

Thanks!

Sure, it's the Vello Shutterboss Version II Timer Remote Switch for Canon with 3-Pin Connection.  I paid $37.50 for it - just a bit better than the $169 Canon price :)  Make sure you get version II.

Thank you, Mackguyver!

If your body is compatible, Magic Lantern includes an excellent intervalometer and is cheaper than any external option  ;)

I take the protective filter off with my 17-40 and then attach the Lee holder. Other lenss, where vignetting is not a problem, I'll leave the protective filter on.

Canon General / Re: Dragonfly, Powered by Canon Lenses
« on: July 12, 2014, 10:31:50 AM »
images obtained using even the largest, most advanced telescopes today contain scattered light that may be hiding this faint structure [...] Dragonfly is designed to reveal the faint structure by greatly reducing scattered light and internal reflections within its optics. It achieves this using ten, commercially available Canon 400mm lenses with unprecedented nano-fabricated coatings with sub-wavelength structure on optical glasses.

?!

Is this using commercially available lenses with non-commercially available coatings?
No, from the article I linked to

...the latest generation of Canon lenses features the first commercialized availability of nano-fabricated coatings...

I only count 8.
The complete article describing the Dragonfly Array is available at arxiv.org/pdf/1401.573. The article states that it is an array of 8 lenses, but may be modified easily to hold up to 15!

the fact that DxO have embarrassed themselves as "scientists" yet again by claiming the physically impossible.

Hmmm....isn't DXO a French company?  I wonder if any of their "scientists" were involved in that faster-than-light neutrino error a few years ago.   ;D
Ignorant, facile and bordering on racist. You're not an American, are you?

The depth of field on a 14mm lens is so large that it's not surprising that you're achieving 'critical focus', even at f2.8, within such a large spread. Using a hyperfocal distance of 4.5m (approx 15ft) means everything from just over 1.5m (approx 5ft) to infinity should be in focus, at f2.8.
