Who in god's name would have been affected in a negative way?
Maybe someone at Canon or at a Canon dealer or distributor got dinged ...

Software & Accessories / Re: Quick release plates: RRS v's Manfrotto

It looks like others might be avoid to avoid our unfortunate (and expensive paths) - Manfrotto to make Arca Swiss heads/plates:
I call it good news for consumers. One more good choice in the AS universe

Where does Canon say that?  AFAIK (and confirmed by Photonotes), the 300/4L (non-IS) works just fine with all the Canon EF extenders (although with the 2x TC you're at f/8 meaning no AF on most bodies).

This is what Canon Canada said : "Dear  David

Thank you for your E-mail inquiry regarding your Canon lens.

I am sorry, the lens you are referring to is not compatible with any of our EF Extenders1.4x or 2x.

Should you require further assistance, please feel free to email us or visit our customer support website at http://www.canon.ca

Canon Customer Service should know, but they do not always. Bryan at TDP says Extenders work, and he tried: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Canon-EF-300mm-f-4.0-L-USM-Lens-Review.aspx

Hope that helps

I wonder how many people have been hoping for big Canon announcements in Costa Rica ...

Recently I have seen a movie production outside with several light panels (LED I believe)  about 1m2 (10sqft) in size

I have used the B&W step-up rings without any problems. I decided to buy them over another brand because I found that the B&W filters had better filter rings/threads as the no-name filter I had before, and I hoped the same would be true for their step-up rings. So far I haven't regretted my choice, the few dollars extra per ring seem very well worth it.

Edit: grammar :-)

When I connect the 40D to my Air, iPhoto pops up and I am only able to download into iPhoto. This kinda defeats the purpose of having USB 3.0. Plus, my prefered workflow uses bridge and photoshop, not iPhoto.
With the camera connected, launch ImageCapture (in the Applications folder). In the window on the left you can elect what Application should start (or none) when you connect the camera. ImageCapture is also the tool you want to use to copy the files to disk when the camera is connected through the cable.

Canon General / Re: How ready is your camera gear usually?
« on: June 24, 2013, 05:03:14 AM »
Most of my gear still fits in a ThinkTank Urban Disguise, together with the work laptop, and that bag is usually with me. It probably qualifies for having made the most trips (to work and back home) without actually seeing any use, but I still carry it for the ad-hoc occasions

Technical Support / Re: metal print question

I think Bay Photo has one profile available for previewing/proofing images on your monitor.
Decent print shops should be able to convert correctly if you embed your profile. In other words, if you send them a file in aRGB, and you saved the image with the profile, they should be able to convert it to whatever color space their printer/material combination has.

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D Autofocus not impressive
« on: June 20, 2013, 04:28:23 PM »
buttons left, buttons right, better or lesser AF, a few dollars or Euros more here or less there or the other ways round - and you all know why Canon did what they did? Geez, how do you know all this? Have you been drinking sake with what-was-his-name-again?

EOS-M / Re: The New EOS M Firmware in Action
« on: June 20, 2013, 01:47:57 PM »
In case any of you live close to one, they are $349 @ Fry's right now including the 22mm lens. I just had Best Buy price match Fry's over the phone - going to compare the M with our recently purchased SL1 to see which one we want to hang on to. I hope the new firmware is released soon.

Great deal.  I wonder if Best Buy would price match for me, given that the closest Fry's is several hundred miles away...   ::)
It is not going to be long and CR members will start buying gear for each other  ;D

Check the Preferences for the Finder. Maybe external drives are just not displayed where you expect them to show up. I find it most convenient to have see them in the sidebar (Finder - Preferences - Sidebar => under Devices, check External disks

That has been done already, I read about a project that created a gigapixel image of the Mount Everest that way.
As Mt Spokane said, it is not necessarily trivial

Quote from Neruo: "As for 'out of air accusations', how would you feel if, hypothetically, I called you, "Not the brightest bulb?" 

i would maybe say "get a life and don´t spend half your life on internet forums. you can´t be that bright either".

Exactly that's the point of the ban. I, and I suppose that is true for most users here, prefer not to have to read that kind of posts. It's too tiring and pointless.
