  1. Has anyone tried the Fotodiox ND throttle adapter? I've only seen stuff for the Sony version. I'm not super interested in a speed booster but having a "built in ND" would be amazing. I'm really hoping Kipon releases a drop in ND adapter like they did for Sony E mount. That would super ideal to have electronic controls and the ability to remove the ND.

  2. I have already switched to FCPX. Absolutely love it. I haven't tried Affinity for my photos yet, but I'm tempted. I think that might be my next move.

    I'll just echo everyone and say we still need a good After Effect replacement. Honestly my After Effects work (mostly motion graphics and some VFX) is my big income. I'll have to look into what Main Frame is doing I guess.

    Someone may have stretched the cable too far when it was off the body. Lots of variables that can happen, and few will admit it if that sort of thing does happen. Murphy's Law.

    Would a stretched cable require us to purchase an entirely new grip?

    Unplug it and plug it back in a few times and see if it fixes the problem. I had a similar problem often on my C100. 

    Still getting nothing. I'm concerned I need to replace the grip. What are the chances of that? The organization I work for just purchased it last August, we take good care of it I can't imagine it already needing to be replaced, but I am at a loss. 

    I currently live in Northern Thailand doing field work for my organization but I'm going to visit family in the States this month— maybe I can take it get serviced if needed? 

  5. Hey folks,

    Like the title says my record trigger stopped working on my grip. The wheel and joystick still function properly just the record button won't work. Any ideas? The connection looks secure to me. It was working just a few days ago, then I took off the hand grip to pack it up and travel and now it's not working. Help!


  6. I feel like many of you would have the spec knowledge to answer my question;

    Would it be physically possible to fit a drop in ND filter on say a Fringer EF-X adapter? I know the Fringer works well with EF-S lenses and I know they have a longer back end then the regular EF lenses, so I wasn't sure if there would be physically enough space to add that. I love the Kipon drop in filter adapter for Sony, but man it would be so ideal to get the Fringer's electronics with a drop in filter. 

  7. I personally shoot on a XT-3 and at work they have a C200. In the past I have shot on a GH5, A6300, and GX7. I've loved every camera.

    I've been tempted to get a EOS-R quite a few times– even over my XT-3. That EF-R variable ND adapter is so tempting. It seems like it does great at what it's capable of– definitely not the most spec'd out camera and maybe not even the most well designed camera, but I honestly think it can be a pretty useful tool.

    For me though, I'm sticking with the XT-3 for now. Would be pretty cool if they got external RAW on the EOS-R, would be even better if it came to the XT-3 (darn sensor).

    Curious how well that adapter would work with the 18-35 1.8

    I love the adapter with the 18-35. It works fantastic. I haven't run into any major issues with it. AF is good, aperture control works, its great honestly. If it had IS in the lens it would never leave my camera.

    anyone has the fringer ef to fx adapter ?

    i have some footage done with my tamron 24-70 2.8 and i find it really shaky even with stab on, wonder if stabilization s working with the adapter ?


    I have the EF-FX Adapter. Absolutely love it. 

    However; I don't have the Tamron 24-70, I use the Canon 17-55 and the IS works great. Maybe it needs an update? I have heard that some of the Tamron glass doesn't interact well with it though.
