    As I understand it the point of micro-adjusting is to determine the plane of focus for a particular body/lens combo. Once you've found it you're done...aren't...

    I wanted to 2nd that thought. I just bought the 70-300 4/5.6 IS on Friday from Adorama. It's the first non-L lens I ever tried and I have to say it is pretty amazing for the price. Yes it's slow...

    Thanks KB - I appreciate it. The 6D seems like a real winner...a few compromises from the current $3K body and more than a few improvements over the older $3K body. I love that 85/1.8 too, one of my...

    I'm not sure why this is a knock on the 1DX though. Different tools for different jobs right? Of course we all make the best compromise we can given our...

    Re: EOS 1D X announced!

    Hi Daniel - would you - or anyone - kindly elaborate on that a bit - what is a "focal-length limited situation?" Are you referring to video output only?


    Thanks!

    DPP Question - Default NR ?

    Hi guys -


    Do the 40D and 5D apply some sort of NR to raw images that isn't user-accessible?


    I was surprised to see "2" when I set DPP's preferences to "camera defaults."


    Thanks.

    Nice work Bob, I like it very much. The background color is almost exactly what I would've chosen - a neutral gray with a little "personality" - nice!

    Good luck with the cleaning - there's really nothing to it - like Daniel said it's a lot like driving a car for the first time. Eventually you get behind the wheel, apply what you know and everything...

    Re: Canon Announces EOS 60D Digital SLR Camera

    Re: Canon Announces EOS 60D Digital SLR Camera

    So the 60D's DLA is f/6.8. Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought that meant that 6.8 was the narrowest you could go without incurring a DLA "penalty" - anything tighter than 6.8 you'd see image...

    Ah the lens... that's it, sure - thanks Sean. That explains the warnings about photographing bright objects/scenes - but nothing about cleaning the sensor.

    Sensor Cleaning Question

    I can't seem to get a definite answer on this - whether bright light, like a high-powered LED flashlight, shining directly on a CMOS / CCD sensor is bad for it.


    There are warnings in the manuals...
