Whichever route you go down, you absolutely should not use a plastic ruler with any blade.
At the very least it should have a metal edge, but preferably be all metal.
When I did my fist work experience at a design agency I was asked to cut something out. I used a normal ruler and the blade...
That seems to be what I’m reading elsewhere.
I’m not ridiculously over-protective of my kit, but I don’t sling it around either.
Even so, my Tamron lens has picked up a small scratch. Luckily it’s right on the edge.
I *think* it’s because the lens cap isn’t a great fit and keeps falling off...
Just picked up a SH version of this lens and the glass is currently unmarked.
I'd like to keep it that way and am after a filter.
However, when searching for filter size and where to buy I came across some articles that say this lens in particular seems to suffer at the long end when using...
I’ve used fixation before to have my old 600d’s sensor cleaned.
However, I think this particular lens was a little too bashed up. There was also a fairly heavy scratch on the front element.
It disappeared when zoomed in to 200, but was visible at 70.
I’ve returned it. Never did find...
For those of you with the non-IS version, do your respective cameras use IS?
Just had it on my camera and I have to say it's a little 'cloudy'.
Anyone any idea how much a lens clean is - or if it's even possible.
Just trying to work out if it's worth a punt.
Thanks all for the thoughts.
I’m going to take my camera to work on Monday.
I figure if I take a few shots inside the office, it might give me an idea of whether it would be a useful lens for me.
But, as mentioned, if the cost is too much then I’ll bail, but if it’s not too high then maybe...
Funnily enough, I did look at the 80-200, but was concerned about the lack of IS and the fact that they still really hold their value.
I probably wouldn’t have considered this, but (hopefully) the price will make it tempting.
My last big lens purchase was from Jessops a while back, but I have to confess, it was online only. Don't remember the last time I went in a store.
Mind you, I had a nightmare as the lens was left outside my house with no signature - despite them claiming they'd got one. My partner at work...
So, I might have the chance to pick up a very bruised and battered non-IS version of the classic 'workhorse' lens.
It's an old lens from a photographer (pics to follow) and I don't know the price yet, but is it worth picking up the non-IS one bearing in mind I won't be using it for sports or am...
Photobox do do a wipeable book.
But it's aimed at kids, so I've no idea what the quality's like or how 'professional' it might seem to your potential clients.
You could, obviously go new school and get a serious 'military' case...
The biggest problem here is how to do it to the standard you require and not get kit which is either too good, or not good enough, to begin with.
You don't want to waste money buying anything that isn't up to the job, and then spend even more to get kit which is perfect.
But it's also just...
I agree the original shot's more dynamic - we needed side on as our stuff needed to be used in way more formats than one press ad. Plus, from memory, that 10k didn't cover us for digital use so we had to reshoot it anyway.
But it is funny to talk about how quickly some skills get lost.
There's definitely truth in that.
As part of a campaign I worked on, one creative team shot a pair of Army Boots and the bill to the client for the shoot was 10k. They were shocked, and it meant that we ended up with a tiny budget for our part of the work. I believe the hero shot was done on...
Although that lens fits, the danger with the 10d is that it was released before the EF-s range of lenses, so you'll only be able to use if with EF lenses. Not a problem if you know that upfront, but a 20d (for example) would give a much broader choice of lens.
It was genuinely one of the best weekends I have had away.
We also went Coasteering, but obviously, I didn't take my iPhone in the sea. I did have a Lumix waterproof camera, but it decided that that was the weekend it was going to stop working.
After that died, I did buy one of those cheap...
Let's say you want to take a shot of a landmark, say Tower Bridge, with the sun setting directly behind it, simply knowing that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west doesn't tell you at what time of the year (or the day) you'll be able to line it up - or which side of the river...
I used an iPhone 6 for the opening bits of this. (In fact, for all the shots too.)
One of the biggest things that will/can make a difference is cleaning your windscreen (obviously) but also, if you can., lock off the focus* on your...
Some more from a stroll today.
