Re: Help with fill flash please?

I appreciate your nervousness. I hate doing this sort of stuff, it's very hard to practice until all of a sudden you are in at the deep end!

If it's any consolation, your expectations of the...

Re: Help with fill flash please?

Ideally, get the gun off the camera. I know this is often not practical, which is why we have holders to get the gun off to the side and further above the lens axis. An assistant to hold the flash...

Re: Help with fill flash please?

Try Manual Mode. Start with flash on 1/16 power and shutter at 1/60, F5.6, (this is from what my dad taught me back in the film days). Take a shot, see how it is. Being in Manual mode you can...

Hi Anne, you are way out of my knowledge range so hope someone experienced in this comes along soon. All I can offer is good luck with the wedding I'm afraid.

If we miss each...

Re: Lee Seven5 ND grads - soft v hard?

I think Stephen makes a good point about a smaller sensor spreading the transition line of a grad filter further across the frame, I certainly noticed the difference when I upgraded from 135 film to...

Re: Lee Seven5 ND grads - soft v hard?

Hi, I use a 2 stop soft ND and a 3 stop hard grad on my em5, sometimes stacked with my big stopper. I find certain cityscapes and woodland scenes and macro scenes (depending on the light) work well...

Re: Lee Seven5 ND grads - soft v hard?

Steve, a .3 soft grad can be useful stacked with a hard grad if you just need a little more darkening towards the top of the frame or reversed to darken reflections in the foreground.

Re: Lee Seven5 ND grads - soft v hard?

Hi Anne. Firstly I'm not comparing like for like here as I use 86mm Hitech ND Grads on my E-5.
However, in my experience I regularly use my hard grads more than my soft - I have .45 (very useful but...

Re: Lee Seven5 ND grads - soft v hard?

My argument may be flawed, but because of the relative small sensor size of 4/3 to other makes, I use Hard grads. The Soft grad would spread the graduation too wide across the sensor.

Re: Removing an adapter ring?

+1

You could also try one of the rubber strap type jam jar lid removal tools to get a firm purchase (make sure all locking buttons are disengaged first).

Re: Removing an adapter ring?

Heating it with a hair dryer (just the ring as much as possible) would have the best effect (jam jar lids can go under hot running water, but not a lens).

Re: Removing an adapter ring?

As you can take the adaptall mount off the lens you can just put the adapters in the freezer/oven.

Re: Removing an adapter ring?

But not too much! The grease in the lens can melt and run onto the leaves of the iris causing the aperture to stick if you are not careful. Gentle heat should cause the metal to expand slightly...

Try putting them in the freezer. If that doesn't work try heating them up.

Re: m4/3 and 4/3 SHG lenses

The trick to using the 50-200 on a bean bag is to use an extra long quick release plate so the plate rests on the bean bag keeping the zoom ring free.
