[Official] OCN Camera Thread - Page 1105

post #11041 of 29551
Okay so big problem, I have not used the tripod for two days and now two of the joints in one of the legs is extremely stiff. I can just extend the upper part but I can't even make the lower section budge. The lower lever seems to lack any resistance when I try to lock the leg so I'm guessing that has somehow disconnected with the leg section.

Anyone got a solution short of disassembling the tripod and cleaning it completely? I don't have the time for that unfortunately. I'm thinking of giving it a bit of lubricant and seeing if that helps.

I'm ordering by noon, you suckers have 8 hours to convince me one way or the other.
Eh, a month ago I would have said Canon, but now the 50mm focal point is almost unused. The only reason I haven't sold it is because it's godly on my film camera.

Yeah, try a little bit of a silicone-based lubricant and see if that fixes it.

The only time I really use it is on film, but I still have the occasional desire to toss it on my 50D. I forgot to order because I was medicated beyond belief and woke up about 20 minutes ago.

See if you can get your hands on either Tri-Flow or PB Blaster. PB works better/faster, but Tri-Flow has a million other uses in your home/recreational life.

Well, the 50mm f/1.4 has almost the same FoV as the cropped focal length of my 28mm on my 50D, which is what I've been using much more often. To me, that whole 50mm FF/30mm cropped region is very comfortable to shoot with.

EDIT: Also just got back from SF. If anyone was there today and saw people horseback racing on each other at Union Square this afternoon... yea

Maybe it's just time I rolled the dice on the Sigma 30mm, and sold my Canon 35. I don't know anymore. Everything I shoot is with 35/50/85 and I only occasionally long for more because... who knows? I should probably just buy a 50 and call it. Sigmalux or Canon, though? Most signs point to Canon.

And now I have access to strobes. Used some broncolor strobes and used both a Flexbody and my 201F. I'll try to get some scans up since the pics are sick.

I went crazy and ordered the Sigma 10-20. WHY.
