Technical Support / Re: Lens hood no longer sung
« on: October 15, 2014, 08:24:59 PM »
None of my lens hoods have ever been able to sing ;)

That's because your lens hood lacks the dynamic voice range necessary. 

snicker

Haha.  Clearly I need to proof my posts better. ;). Thanks for all the feedback!  I will live with it.

Technical Support / Lens hood no longer sNug.
« on: September 24, 2014, 08:40:38 PM »
Recently I've noticed the lens hood on my 100L Macro no longer fits snugly on the lens.  Red dots are lined up properly and it's seated correctly, but there is a little jiggle to it.  Has anyone noticed this or know of a fix?

Thanks

You want an IPS display.  Several manufacturers make them.  Im sure others will chime in on which company makes a decent one.  I use a MacBook Pro which uses IPS technology in its display.  IPS allows for better colors and contrast.  Also the color does not shift when viewing indirectly.

I have this lens.  Bought it because of the price.  I do like it,  but seldom use it.  Been thinking about selling it.  A shame if they discontinue it.  It's a great lens.

Thanks for the suggestions.  The stereo mic would probably be the way to go.

I want to get a shotgun mic for my 5D3.  I do not shoot a lot of video, but I plan on shooting some on my vacation over the summer.  I don't want to use onboard sound since the IS on my 24-105 is pretty loud.  I was looking at something like the Sennheiser MKE 400 or a Rode VideoMic.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Getting some great responses here.  Now I also considered plunking down the cash for the 50L 1.2.  A wise choice?  Or does the price not justify the purchase over the 50 1.4?


I'm one of those who love their 50 1.2. But my advice would be to only buy it if you really know why you want it and what to do with it. I would start with the 1.4 or any of the other lower price choices. If it turns out that you use 50mm primes a lot and that you like to shoot at wide aperture then you can make a case for the 50L. Or not. It all depends. Or as somebody here said once: if you have to ask you probably don't need it.

Thats probably what I'll do....I'll start with the 1.4.  :)

Mine is loud too.  It's normal for this lens.

I doubt I'd use it on any paid gigs.  Just something easy to shoot with in low light.  For example at my sisters to shoot her kids indoors acting like maniacs.
