    Tripod Bag / Case

    I have a Manfrotto 546B tripod paired with a Manfrotto 504HD fluid head. I'm having trouble finding the right bag/case for it. On the B&H website it recommends three cases but doesn't mention if that case will fit with the head attached or not (what I'm aiming for). 1)...

    Nikon has patented for a 16-35mm f/2.8 VR lens (VR of Nikon is the equivalent of the IS of Canon). Does Canon plan on making an equivalent of Nikon's recently patented lens?

    B+W ND filters from 2filter.com

    5D Mark III sensor cleaning noise (squeaks)

    5D Mark III HDR Mode "issue"

After this happens (as I don't check the images immediately), I usually have to go back...

    5D Mark III Firmware Update Error

    During the process of updating with most recent firmware 1.1.3, the 5D Mark III I was using encountered a strange problem: The firmware update would fail after reaching a certain amount of percentage of completion (avg. 52%), and would disable the camera from any other functions. I would not be...

    5D Mark III operating temperatures at high altitudes

    Is anyone aware of what the operating temperatures would be for a situation where the Mark III would be taken to an elevation of almost 4 km (2.5 mi) and used straight out of the bag? Example: July, mountain top, sunrise, 4 km / 2.5 mi above sea level
