I played around with one for a while. I was not impressed. It left a visible pattern on the picture with small apertures. Let me know if you have more success. I gave mine away as being useless. Cannot remember what make it was.

I bought it with video in mind but will let you know how I get on. It’s just a cheap one with a view to getting a better one if needs be.
The replacement arrived today but still need to send the wrong one back.
May the Force be with you.

Lightroom. Took 8 goes to export the picture for this week's comp. Paid no attention whatsoever to the parameters I put in the export dialogue box, exported 23 pictures on two separate occasions. Had to delete my Camera Craniums preset and write another one. On the four occasions it did export the correct file it gave it weird names, not as set in the renaming box, and made it too big to upload. I know I have to have LR, but bl**dy hell does it p*ss me off. Going back to doing stuff like exporting in ACDSee to preserve what's left of my sanity.

I know where you coming from. It can be really annoying. For quick jobs I use "Faststone" http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm
 Sorry not good with links. Very quick and reads all the RAW's of whatever you throw at it.

I used to use Fastone too - very good little app.

I am trying to re-edit a picture from a while ago for my camera club meeting next week (actually now finished it). I have been waiting and waiting for LR to build the thumbnails, and still waiting as I type. So I opened ACDSee, located it, made a duplicate, ran it through ACDSee develop, sent it to On1 RAW to finish it off and exited both programmes. Meanwhile LR is still building thumbnails. It is beyond me how this ever got so popular - if it wasn't Adobe and linked to PS I doubt any sane person would buy it.

Update - just been told by LR that all the photos are missing - funny how ACDSee found them all  . . .

If it takes ages for LR to build thumbnails it might be cured by the following. Goto library mode. select import, in Import screen, top right hand corner goto file handling. Select Build Previews - Minimal.
That might help??

Thanks Simple. The problem is that LR uses a catalog rather than directly accessing the files like ACDSee does. It was a big folder and was on a different drive the last time I used it, so obviously LR couldn't find it. Just loaded a load of blank thumbnails. Manually syncing the folder did the job, but the problem remains that LR is not dynamic.

Hey ho, juts finished the file resizing etc in ACDSee, going to have a cup of tea now.

Dropped my 100-400 in america - left the zip undo on my rucksack and slung it on my shoulder and it fell out onto the hotel bedroom floor. Looked ok, but took some pictures yesterday and they aren't in focus at all. Bugger.

Sorry about that.  :'(

As you were on holiday it might be worth checking you holiday insurance, as it might cover personnel processions.  :tup:

Its insured anyway Oldboy - but as ever has an excess of £100 from memory - I'll get it back to Canon with instructions to repair under £200 and to get back to me otherwise. I'll try and get it picked up tomorrow by UPS (I have a label from Canon CPS to get it collected) should only take a week or so to fix unless its really buggered. In which case the insurance and sort it.

Bummer! Done this a few times myself but always been near enough to the floor when dropping to save the worst. Hope insurance goes through ok

Visible damage is none. Anyway, its on route to canon now - should arrive tomorrow - should be back early next week as I am a gold CPS member. (Get 10% off servicing and repairs and 3 working day turnaround) - and its free. Just need qualifying products.

Lens arrived at Canon yesterday. Got a call today. Tomorrow I will be calling the insurers and we will really see how good they are! Estimate is £450  :o

I've recently had both camera and lens repaired at cost to the insurer of nearly 800gbp. They were fine but the repairer (fixation) took 10 weeks to repair both. There supply of parts being the reason apparently. I'm just Joe Public so they were not going to rush my job.
Things seemed to speed up when I got in touch with Nikon direct asking about their lead times etc.
