In Topic: Do 15mm's need servicing?

10 December 2014 - 08:59 AM

I agree with David and John. In 40+ years of photography I don't think I have ever had a lens stop working after a period of non-use. I may run it through a serious of shutter activations at differing speeds and apertures just to "freshen it up" - but apart from that, I'd just use it. I certainly wouldn't get it services.

 

But storage and the possible accumulation of mildew/mould is something else. I've had 3 Nikkor lenses go mouldy: a 60mm which was written off as a result, and an 18-200 and 40-800 both of which could be repaired but, for the later especially, at eye-watering cost.

I'm with Steve. I've had my 45 degree Subal finder since 2008 and love it.

Yes, it takes a bit of getting used to and maybe isn't the easier of the two for bigger animal photographs. But near the bottom, macro etc, unbeatable!

Really nice! I especially like your editing - nice, crisp and just the right length cuts - and the music.

Nice job!

 

How many hours of video did you have to edit? What software did you use? It's well done  :good: nice work indeed

 

I've just bought my partner a GoPro for Xmas.... just trying to get an idea on what's going to come down the track next  :chatterbox:
