    KP3000 - an alternative to high end film scanners

    Hi all, I started goofing around with rephotographing negatives a few months ago, and it lead to this: a kickstarter campaign. Even if it's not in your budget, you might be interested in the results I've been getting with my 5DSr and 100L. Have a look at the video, or just read the text...

    Arca Swiss compatible plate for M5?

    Just an update: I did end up getting a Fittest brand RRS knockoff from ebay for less than $20, and it fits perfectly. No need to modify anything even to get the battery door all the way open - perhaps they've modified their design a little. Took a while to receive, but fits great on my RRS...

    Arca Swiss compatible plate for M5?

    Thanks for the replies! I read a review on the b&h site that with the RRS plate attached the screen wouldn't flip down all the way (selfie mode) ultimately not a deal breaker, but just wondering if there were others out there that were somehow not coming up in my searches. I might try the RRS...

    Arca Swiss compatible plate for M5?

    Hi All, Has anyone found an Arca Swiss compatible plate for their M5 that doesn't impact ANY functionality? It seems they mostly impede some movement of the screen. It might be too much to ask for I realize, but I thought I'd see if anyone had found a solution that worked for them. Thanks, -k

    5Ds screen replacement tips?

    Hi All, I have a student abused 5Ds, in need of a focusing screen replacement. I found a supplier of OEM replacement screens on ebay, but was wondering if anyone had any experience with this particular bit of surgery? As I recall the 5Ds/sr have additional mirror dampening and possibly a more...

    More Mentions of EF-M Prime Lenses [CR1]

    i was! (in my mind at least... didn't actually mention it to anyone.) but i'm very pleased about this rumor! i'd much prefer a fast 15mm than the slow uw zoom in this range. -k

    its all about the 5DS, who is using the 5DR

    i too bought a 5dsr when canonpricewatch had an early street price deal and b&h still hadn't filled their preorders. anyway, moving from a 5dii, i'm very pleased with the upgrade but still feel like i'm just scratching the surface of what it can do. i was initially worried about not seeing too...
  11. L 5Ds vs 5Ds-R crops posted

    hi neuro, are you saying that the aa filtered images can have more sharpening applied than the aa cancelled images? if so, can you explain further? i'd love to find an excuse to stop waiting for the 5dsr and just get a 5ds. thanks, -karl

    Canon 25-105 L or 24-70 L ii for a landscape lens?

    hi ryan, i have the both the 24-105 and the 24-70 mkII, shoot a lot of landscapes, and make 20x30" prints. since i bought the 24-70, the 24-105 doesn't get a lot of use. the added sharpness is just too good for me to pass up. (for some reason, despite being a "landscape photographer" i...

    5Ds/5DsR & Lens resolution - anomaly (Lensrentals ref.)

    one thing to remember is that image resolution is a function of lens and sensor (someone else can supply the actual equation if they wish - i just know i've read it on other threads.) so even if a lens scores a 1300 on a high resolution sensor that doesn't mean that it will on a lower...
