Reasons to be cheerful
Updated: Feb 22
I haven’t posted anything for a while. I’ve had two or three good trips with my f4 friends, especially one up to Mull to shoot eagles and puffins again, but my results have frustrated me somewhat. I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t getting sharp images. I’m pleased to say that the question has now been answered. I checked all my lenses on the 5D mkiii using Reikan Focal software which worked extremely well and gave me some useful information. All my lenses had previously been calibrated using the earlier version of the software and the results had changed quite a bit on second testing. This led me to think that I might have a camera problem although I can’t think why it should happen. Anyway, I contacted Canon Main repair agents, H Lehmann of Stoke on Trent and arranged to go down and have the camera and my new Canon 100-400 mkii lens checked over. They rang me after half an hour to say that the sensor was not aligned correctly and that they would repair it for me but it would take most of the day. Just before 4pm my camera was ready and I was on my way. That’s what I call service – thanks to Ann and the rest of the team at Lehmann’s – I’ve used their services before and will use them again should the need arise – highly recommended.
Now – let’s get out and take some pictures……
