Binocular advice needed

Many years ago, before I started birding, I bought a pair of Pentax 16x25 bins. Mostly I love them - they're small, light, easy to carry and relatively clear. I don't generally find them too hard to...

Hi all

I'd also go with DPP. I use an older version of Elements and generally I have found that DPP does a better job with the colour balance than the Elements RAW converter.

I feel your pain Roy. I've been hours away from buying a 500m f/4.5 on at least two occasions and have talked myself out of it because of the weight issue. I love my 400mm f/5.6. It's a fantastic...

AE Lock Problem with 1D MkIIN

Hi all

Just had my 1DMkIIN looked at by Canon because the AE lock kept engaging of its own accord and refusing to turn off (even turning the camera off and taking the battery out wouldn't clear it)....

I'm using the MkIIN and 400m f/5.6 having come from a 20D and I have to say I think it is a great combination. The move from a 1.6 to a 1.3x crop factor is noticeable but not perhaps as much as you...

I quite like the shutter sound of my my 1D MkII. Seems crisper (and slightly quieter?) than my old 20D. I've yet to try out machine gun mode in a confined space though!
