Time machines does do that I think. You can specific any drive, internal or external that is attached to the machine to be backed up. Or at least, I'm certain it can back up to an external drive.


Looks like you're right! That's great actually. This was the first thing that came up on a search:

The app is called Time Machine.

It's built into the Mac operating system. It does exactly what you described and works very well. It should just be on your computer. I think it came out 3 versions ago, so if you are on at least Leopard, you will definitely have it.

I was under the impression Time Machine does internal hard disk to external backup.

So it can do external to external backups as well?

I almost never use my 24-70 on f.2,8. But if they did make the 24-105 with the same hood as the 24-70. I would maybe change because i would then have a bigger zoom range than the 24-70.
Anyway. Here is a shot with the 24-70


Very interesting effect. How did you convert it from an image to this?


It's called HDR and destroys nice images everyday :D:D:D:D


I don't see HDR in the programme I use - Aperture for Mac. It's a Photoshop function?


I ll help you a bit.


What do you mean?

My first attempt at public photo sharing, so here goes...

1. EOS XSi (450D), EF 135mm f/2L, 1/2000s, f/2.5, ISO 200
2. EOS XSi (450D), EF 135mm f/2L, 1/2000s, f/2.8, ISO 200
3. EOS XSi (450D), EF 135mm f/2L, 1/3200s, f/2.8, ISO 200

Constructive comments welcome!

P.S. How can I display the above info above/below each photo? Also, how is it that ssriraman's and not 'clickable', i.e. not downloadable? How can I do that?

Now where did I put all my lens caps is another story...  ::)

My point exactly!

Mesh vests? I'd rather have the velcro body suit

To everyone else...

Redreflex is getting defensive because his simple question is getting met with snarky comments.  So please try to keep things courteous, constructive, and on-topic.

Very considerate bvukich... Although in fact, I'm quite enjoying the banter, so keep it coming! One of the many reasons I like this site and the forum community. Never thought a question about lens caps can throw up so many opinions (albeit mostly one sided!)

Now, all I need to is buy some pants with pockets...

For me, this is a non-problem looking for an unneeded solution. But then, I also realize there were many people who thought swimming across streams was a refreshing break until the bridge builders came along.

I honestly do think it's a nuisance. My dad bought his first DSLR last month, and pointed out the same thing to me, which I had forgotten about since I'm used to it. Maybe all seasoned DSLR users are so used to it they don't see it as a problem any longer.

Hmm... maybe an alternative solution is to have a lens cap holder attached to the camera shoulder strap rather than to the DSLR body itself. That would get over the problem of looking for a pocket in my pants when I'm shooting whilst wearing shorts (or whatever else that's pocketless) at home. Actually, I quite like that idea... not keen on "wind causing the cap to behave like a pendulum".

Does that BlackRapid strap thing recommended by some of you 1-2 weeks ago on another thread have a lens cap holder in addition to (I think) an SD card holder?

I really don't understand the rationale behind not having an in-built solution.

Simplicity.  Why turn a $3 lens cap into a $50 over-engineered lens cap management solution.

So a $100 point and shoot can have an inbuilt lens cap, but an L lens that costs at least 10 times that amount can't?

Why has Canon never come up with a way of ensuring the lens cap stays permanently attached to the lens?

I really don't understand the rationale behind not having an in-built solution.

How would you like it attached?  Some Krazy Glue on the threads should keep it there permanently... ::)

Seriously, though - I hate the idea of a 'cap keeper'.  The relatively small lens cap for a P&S or camcorder dangling on a string is annoying enough - a 77mm or 82mm cap is too big to dangle, not to mention the fact that with an ultrawide lens, a dangling cap would have a good chance of being part of the picture.

What would you suggest for a design?

Being the product design engineer that I am (not)...

I don't know to be honest. But seriously, you don't find this annoying at all? If you're shooting with 1 lens all day, I can put up with it. If you're switching lenses several times over a relatively short period of time, I mean, how many times do you need to put the lens cap on and off - is it in your left front pocket, or right rear... or camera bag... I know I'm labouring the point... and you've got to ensure you're always wear clothing with a pocket of sorts in the same place???

For example, with camcorders, and point and shoot cameras, there is a lens cover of sorts in the form of a shutter (electronic or manual) at the front of the lens. I know that's a little more complex with lens filters... but surely a multi billion dollar company can find a solution that's also remotely aesthetically pleasing.

Am I missing the point here? Maybe having to worry about lens caps is really the privilege of being a DSLR owner...

I had a "lens leash" on my SX10 IS and missed it on my DSLR.  The problem is that most of these are too short to get around the base of longer lenses, and it's sort of awkward.

I just don't understand why they can't do it for DSLRs

What do you guys use, if anything, to overcome this little nuisance?
I make a point to put the lens cap in my left front pocket. No other place, especially not a shirt pocket, only the left front pants pocket. I haven't lost one since I have started making a point of doing this.

Still means a loose piece of lens accessory floating around - always prone to misplacements. And also means I don't infrequently forget to put the lens cap back on!

I really don't understand the rationale behind not having an in-built solution.
