    Super Blue Blood Moon 2018

    I really like the bottom version. I think some additional processing when the moon is the only subject can sometimes make for a more interesting image (obv from my post). Either way, pretty cool that you could take that hand held.

    Super Blue Blood Moon 2018

    Impressed by the amount of 'blood' captured in all the photos posted here - very nice shots. I got this much earlier in the night (no eclipse) around 6pm, near Toronto. I was surprised to resolve some decent detail despite light cloud cover. 5D3 + 500II + 2xIII

    Possible Issue With T6s & T6i Sensor?

    Re: Possible Issue With T6s & T6i Sensors? My father's T6i arrived 2-3 days ago from Camera Canada. Checked it last night and no spots thankfully.

    EF 85mm f1.2 ii - Dust Issues?

    I've had the mark II version for a couple years. I am careful with it, but use it outdoors, at events, etc. My lens has definitely collected some internal dust and I also have a few specs that have settled near the rear element as well. I doubt there is anyway practical way to avoid this...

    I can't stop thinking about A MONSTER!

    I have the 500mm II and the majority of the time I use it hand held on a FF. Besides 500mm being my preferred focal length, the weight was one of the reasons I chose the lens over the 400mm and 600mm II's (it's not a massive difference, but it is noticable). I walk with the 500mm on a BR strap...

    Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II travel bag for Alaska

    I've been using the Glass Limo for about a week now with my 500mm II. It fits the 500mm II attached to a pro body perfectly but doesn't leave room for much else. I like using it when all I want to carry is my 500mm with camera attached, as it's a very light, slim, and unassuming satchel. For...
