Software & Accessories / Re: Bent tripod leg

I'd prefer to take care of it myself rather than go through the hassle and expense of purchasing replacement parts, if possible.


Tubes are not fun to straighten out.

If it is kinked, forget it.

If it is a gradual bend, you will have to over-bend it to get it to be straight after the tension is left off.

When bending it, you do not want to crush the tube into an oval shape. a hardwood dowel up the middle of the tube is the best way to go... using a copper pipe up the middle is a bad idea... both will go oval together. You might want to sand the dowel down to as close of an exact size as possible.... mounting the dowel in a large chuck and 60 grit paper will let you remove stock fairly quickly and evenly... hopefully you know someone with a woodworking lathe, that's the best tool for the job...

you are going to have three contact points.... one in the curve, and one to each side. You run the least risk of damaging the leg further if you take some pieces of wood, drilling a hole the same diameter as the leg, and slipping them over the leg to use the points to apply pressure from. This will further help avoid flat spots from the clamping and bending.

Be very careful if it is aluminum.... Aluminum breaks very easy after it has been bent.

hope this helps!

I live in Labrador, Canada. To be precise, Labrador City. The nearest major city is Montreal, Quebec. It is about 1000 miles away by road (approximately). The gentleman from Alaska is in a similar environment. It is amazing how cold a camera feels when it is -30.

I am amazed at the wildlife / scenery pictures posted here. For the few posters who said they have nothing to take pictures of,  to quote a friend, "look at it like you are a tourist"
I haven't been to Lab city since June :) Love the area!

btw, the link is to a time-lapse of the drive from Goose Bay to the ferry across to the island.... enjoy!

For me, the wildlife photography is an excuse to be outside. Ultimately, it is the outdoor experience that matters to me, not the photos..... but that doesn't mean you can't try hard to be better at it.

Portrait / Re: Can we identify this man?

I am baffled by some of the responses in this thread. OP sees a photo of someone who obviously is doing something wrong and wants that man be identified so he can be stopped. Is there something wrong with that? Seriously…
Would you want him doing this to one of yours?

I would not want anyone to do that to my daugther and my wife!

A T5 with good lenses is way better than an expensive camera with poor glass.....

There is a great quote from the world of mountaineering.... "Getting to the top is optional, getting down is mandatory"  The same hold true in hiking.... getting to the destination is optional, getting back out is mandatory.

Any time you are hiking off into the woods or hills, be prepared. Stuff happens! Make sure someone knows where you are going and when you should be back... bring along a snack and plenty of water... a mini first aid kit, a headlamp, and an emergency blanket.... matches and a knife (the knife is for kindling and such, not playing Rambo) A compass and map are usefull.... and a couple of those big orange garbage bags can keep you dry and warm in an emergency and are very visible...

go to :

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eos_5d_mark_iii?selectedName=DriversAndSoftware

and download EOS digital solution disk software 29.0A.......

That is the image of the latest version of the CD.... you will need to enter the serial number of your camera...

Thanks!

That has dpp, etc.?
It should have everything.

Thanks again.  That was easier than I expected.

There are a lot of tablets and laptops now that don't have DVD-Roms.... Canon had to do something so they could install the software on them.... I'm always surprised when a company does something sensible :)
