"Hints from Heloise" type of tip!
« on: July 13, 2013, 04:51:47 PM »
Here is a little tip that I have been using and it may be helpful to others.

I use a label maker for my equipment for a lot of things because it doesn't mar the finish, and it is neat.

I can label +/- signs for battery compartments that are poorly labeled (pocket wizards etc).
Here is a really cool one.  For my 400mm 5.6 l tele, I find that the AFMA for close in work has a different adjustment compared to far away.  I calibrated it and I put the figure on the lens hood, so I can quickly change it out as needed.  The label is easily changed as calibration changes.

Obviously, not a permanent identification, but that is the point.

I hope this is helpful, and I would be interested if anyone else uses this and if so, there are other uses for it.

And everyone born after 1965 is wondering.."Who is this Heloise?"

Love my label maker . . .
- label my lens caps so I can quickly see what's what when stored vertically in a bag
- label cards and batteries numerically, which is great for shooting and keeping track of them

Also, if you are on a shoot and everyone has Canon gear, no confusion as to which belongs to whom.

Right about the 1965.....
