Try taking that battery our of the rotation. The flash is powered by all 4 batteries in series so the current drain should pass through all 4 batteries.  You can check each battery's voltage before putting them into a charger.  Got a voltmeter?

I don't think he's saying that he's using the 85/50mm with a 1.4x but my guess is that you can use it if you put an extension tube in between the lens and extender

Wouldn't an extension tube prevent focusing at infinity?  Non-AF?

I would recommend the 6D over any crop camera for all pursuits except for tiny songbirds.

As an owner of numerous Canon crop cameras the last decade, the IQ IMHO lost something with the start of the 7D. The images just look "rough" compared to Canon's FF offerings. I have also experience increased focus inconsistency with the 1.6x high megapixel sensors.

The 300 prime is amazing on FF. Also, IMHO, using a 1.4x on 50 and 85mm primes is a waste of time, just crop. The 1.4 is brilliant on the 300/F4 on FF, though.

Wait, you can use 1.4X extenders on the 50mm and 85mm?  What's yoursecret?

I had to provide proof of liability insurance for my son's wedding reception venue and I was just requested to provide one for my daughter's

Most venues require liability insurance in case guests damage private property.  The wedding party provides that insurance.  You have to document the incident and the bridal party's insurance should cover damage done by an inebriated guest.

Consider having Canon repair your 24-105

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D Mark II with selector dial mod
« on: October 30, 2014, 07:37:04 PM »
I saw this on an auction while preparing to sell my 5D2.  Does Canon really do this mod?

"For sale used canon eos 5d mark II is in good perfect condition, selector dial lock modified
like the 5d mark III , by canon. "

Sometimes, the best opportunities present themselves close to  home and you pull over while driving

EOS Bodies - For Stills / %D Mark III instead of 7D Mark II
« on: October 28, 2014, 10:44:06 PM »
I had the $1799 ready for the 7D2 but I found a mint condition 5D3 for $2200 so I pulled the trigger.  It's amazing how the price drops just before a highly anticipated release.  I am very happy to be shooting the 5D3 along with my new used 1D4
