i think the energizer batteries are a bit far fetched, wouldn't you say?

hi! i bought a few month ago a cheap radio transmitter & receiver but it doesn't work :( Is your Micnova FT-4C working well ? If so I could plan to buy one.

Astfel de acumulatori nu se strica daca nu le incarci cum trebuie. Daca sunt Ni-MH nu au memorizare. Poti sa ii reincarci oricand, doar sa ii incarci un incarcator bun.

:iconjust-c00ly:
Just-C00ly Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
da, sunt Ni-MH si ii incarc destul de des, avand in vedere k ma tin in medie cam 15-20 min (cred) :laughing: dar incarcatorul e Energizer

Deci este "fast charger", adica are toate sansele sa nu le incarce cum trebuie.
Acumulatotrii de 2000mAh ar trebui incarcati in ~10 ore la tensiunea standard. Dar nimeni nu mai face asta, asa ca toate chargerele ii incarca la o tensiune ridicata in cateva ore. Problema este ca facand asta ai sanse mari sa crezi ca i-ai incarcat, dar sa nu se fii incarcati complet.

Pe scurt, incearca sa imprumuti un incarcator de la un prieten sa vezi daca te tin mai mult. ;)

Ok... o insiruire aparent impresionanta... zic aparent pentru ca:
Filtrele sunt mediocre in cel mai bun caz datorita tratamentelor ok dar nu foarte bune ale suprafetelor optice. Asta se va traduce in cel mai bun caz prin lens flare.
. Trebuia sa fi luat filtre Hoya, cel putin HMC preferabil seria PRO eventual pe 77 mm si luai step down de la 77 la cat aveai nevoie, asa daca schimbai obiectivul, luai numai un inel step-down corespunzator.
Obiectivul Canon 50mm f1.8 este de asemenea mediocru, net inferior lui Nikkor AF 50mm f1.8D care la un pret cu 40 ron mai mic vine si cu montura metalica [!!!] plus inel de diafragma, ceea ce il face potrivit pentru o incropeala rapida pentru macro[montarea a doua obiective unul in fata celuilalt utilizand un inel inversor 52/52 de exemplu] fara a mai fi nevoie de un filtru close-up. Singurul lucru bun la el este ca are motor inclus, desi nefiind un USM e lent si imprecis la focalizare. Oricum, trebuia sa ai acest obiectiv primul din tolba cu bunatati.

Filtrul close-up cu dioptrie mult prea mare, se vor vedea foarte bine distorsiunile geometrice si cel mai probabil si cele cromatice deci nu prea l-as recomanda.
Spigot, stative de lumini, trepiede, carduri... astea le are oricine...
Flash-ul da, e ok sa il pui pe o lista.
Obiectivul tamron are dupa cum s-a demonstrat si in alte ocazii distorsiuni geometrice maricele. Personal nu il favorizez...
Baterii Power 3000... e ca si cum ai avea Ferrari si ii pui spirt in rezervor... C'mon un acumulator de Canon nu e asa scump...

Daca vrei un sistem in care sa gasesti cam ce-ti pui mintea... treci la Nikon... Canon au niste obiective ridicol de scumpe...
Si daca vrei pe FX... gandeste-te daca se merita inainte de a face pasul... pentru ca atunci.. nu mai poti sa iei tamron sau alte porcarii
trebuie sa mergi pe obiective serioase, originale, si cand te gandesti cat e un 70-200 f2.8....

PS: dar blende nu folosesti ? Ma gandesc ca ti-ar fi prins bine in studio...

Sajuuk2 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2010
Da.. corect.. nu am vazut blendele...
Nu e vb ca nu ai bani.. dar in loc de atatea filtre... luai mai putine dar mai bune.. care iti foloseau ulterior pe orice obiectiv... Acumulatorii sunt o investitie buna, dar preferabil sa fie originali. Au alta rata de uzura.
Filtrul UV e ok, dar la altitudinea la care suntem... nu prea are un efect... in schimb un strat in plus de sticla poate avea un efect advers asupra pozei.

Ai grija la obiectivele Tamron si Sigma pentru ca pot sa aiba frontfocus sau back-focus.. si atunci e o fericire ca trebuie sa ti le recalibreze la service.
Eu as vinde ce am, si as lua ceva mai bun :).
Apropo.. daca vrei 55-200, gandeste-te bine inainte la ce il vei folosi. Daca nu tragi foarte mult tele... mai bine ramai cu 50mm care e un tele moderat[pe 40D vine la aprox 80mm din cauza factorului de crop de 1.6]. Eu unul as da Tamronul si filtrele si as lua un obiectiv bun. 40D e un aparat foarte bun dar merita si o sticla pe masura ;).

Am auzit multe lucruri bune de acumulatorii non-originali, si m'au tinut chiar bine.
Filtrele le'am primit la obiective, iar CPL si ND le'am luat pt efectele lor.
Mersi.
