Inspiration for your EOS photography
Hello EOS friends,
It’s been a busy start to 2014. The January sale event that we held
here in Tackley was great fun and it was lovely to meet so many of
you. Luckily the snow held off – trust us, getting in and out of the
village here is no picnic when the weather is bad. So now we are
looking forward to the sun and to our next event in early June.
Not only have we had the sale event but we feel like we are
only just up and running again after the inaugural Photography
Show. Held at the NEC in Birmingham it was a great celebration

Eyelead flash diffuser
Finally – we have found a replacement for the much-missed
Omnibounce flash diffusers. Simply push this rigid plastic diffuser
onto your Speedlite to produce softer illumination. The best
results are obtained with the flash head tilted up so that the light
can spread around the area.
This pop-on diffuser will soften harsh shadows which appear
behind subjects and will help to eliminate red-eye. It has been
designed to mimic the light distribution properties of a Fresnel
lens, used in lighthouses, and the ridges across the surface of the
diffuser help to spread the light further and more evenly. Because
the light is softened unwanted reflections are also reduced.
You can also change the colour of the light from your flash
with the optional colour filter set. The pop-on diffuser has two
small holes in the front panel into which the four coloured filters
clip. The filter set includes yellow/gold, green, blue and red, useful
for creative purposes and for balancing certain lighting conditions.
If you favour the built-in flash on
your EOS camera then try the pop-up
version. Available as a hotshoe mount
for your built-in flash, the pop-up diffuser will act in the same
way – to soften the light from your built-in flash and reduce
shadows and harsh contours. The foot slots easily into your
camera’s hotshoe and the diffuser’s position is adjustable.
The diffuser can also be angled to suit the projection of your
built-in flash.

500mm mirror lens
If you have ever lusted after the Canon EF 500mm f4L IS II USM lens then chances are your eyes have also watered at the price of it - at
around £9000 (RRP). Even the thought of carrying it at a weight of just over 3kg and length of 383mm is not for the faint-hearted. So we
have an alternative for you – a mirror lens. Often dismissed as toys or playthings, we feel this mirror lens is worthy of our attention.
The 500mm f6.3 mirror lens from Kaili offers advantages in size, weight and, most significantly, price. It contains a combination of
lenses and mirrors to form the image. This design, also employed in the original Canon FD 500mm f8 Reflex lens which we used to take
the image of the flamingoes (bottom left), folds the light path between two mirrors which reduces the length of the lens assembly. The
lens has a fixed aperture of f6.3 and focusing has to be done manually. Minimum focusing distance is two metres.
Mirror lenses will certainly give you the reach of a super telephoto lens even if they cannot quite match the image quality and
contrast, but if you are looking for an inexpensive way to extend your view, this might be a solution for you. Also if you’re prepared to
spend a little bit of time post-processing, you can lift the contrast as needed.
Mirror lenses are like Marmite - you’ll either love or hate the result they can create. They turn
background specular reflections into ‘doughnut’ shapes. This is a characteristic of all mirror lenses, but
only happens with bright background reflections. If you shoot against darker backgrounds the image
appears normal, hence the image of the baby rhino is doughnut-free. For more information on mirror
lenses read the article ‘Legacy lenses’ in the April-June 2013 issue.
Weighs 600g, dimensions 85.4 x 79mm. Supplied with T2-mount to attach to all EOS models.

Each card is divided into colour-coded panels. If you have a question about
metering or bracketing, simply look at the yellow panel. The layout and
description for the control panel and viewfinder can be found on the blue
panel. And a colour-coded index on the front page (above) immediately points
you towards the answer you need. It also has a panel that shows you the
camera functions available for each mode dial setting.
The inBrief guide is laminated for durability and protection and is designed
to be folded and stored in your camera bag. Your inBrief guide is not a

to peg it to the ground. Folds down to a
compact size and comes with a carry bag.
A versatile addition to your kit.
Made from PVC coated nylon, 167cm
wide and 106cm long (excludes hood).
This three-legged stool is comfortable,
compact and lightweight – all important
considerations when choosing a portable
seat for photographing outdoors. The
large rubber feet mean that you won’t sink
immediately into softer ground.
There are two sitting positions – low
with the legs retracted to 37cm and normal
height of 65cm with the legs extended. The
seat is a generous 40cm in size and bears
a load pressure of 250 kg. The stool folds
away to 45cm and is
easy to carry, weighing
only 850g. A carry bag
is included.
The Walkstool can
double as a camera
support, particularly
useful for longer
lenses and when you
don’t have the time to
unpack your tripod.

Canon lens hoods
White lens hoods
Lens flare spoils many
pictures. Even when
it does not show as a
streak across the image,
it can cause overall loss
of contrast. Lens hoods
protect the front of the
lens from side lighting
from bright sources,
such as the sun.

Canon chooses to make its large telephoto
lenses with white barrels in order to help keep
the lens barrel cool. The glass elements used
in lenses expand with heat and the expansion
of larger glass elements could affect the outer
housing or even the performance of the lens.
A white surface reflects sunlight, thereby
keeping the lens cooler and within its design
tolerances. However Canon only supplies the
lens hoods in black for its L-series telephoto zooms. That’s why we’ve chosen these white
lens hoods, to complement the finish on the lens itself whilst still performing the essential
function of any lens hood, eliminating lens flare. The interior surface is matt black so that
the lens hood still performs as it should – preventing lens flare and absorbing stray light.
The lens hood screws securely onto the filter mount on the outside rim of the lens and can
be attached in reverse for storage.

Camera raincovers
Lightweight cover
Both the lightweight and heavy
duty raincovers on this page
feature a large, clear panel
at the rear for viewing the
camera’s LCD monitor (above).
There is a small hole covered
by a flap so you can access
the viewfinder. The flap can be
secured with Velcro over the
opening when not in use.
Our advice is to fit your
usual eyecup on the outside,
holding the cover in the right
place at all times.
Don’t get caught short in the rain ever again
with this simple but effective lightweight,
waterproof cover. It is fast and easy to
put over your camera, and folds down to
a minimal size to fit neatly into your bag
or even a coat pocket. The silver cover
is incredibly lightweight at
only 80g, adding very little
extra weight and bulk to
your camera bag. Both sizes

Right angle finder
In Sweden they say that there is no bad
weather, only bad clothing. The same
is true of the cover you get for your
EOS camera. That makes this all-season
performer our best buy. It’s fully waterproof
and has an insulating layer that resists
the cold to maximise battery life. It also
muffles camera noises, minimising sounds
that may startle your subject. The practical
design features an armsleeve on the left
side for you to hold the camera, while
Velcro fasteners allow easy access to the
controls or tripod.
The integral lens sleeve is
approximately 10cm long and features a
drawcord at the end for a snug fit around
a variety of lenses. For longer lenses (up
to 40cm long) an extension sleeve can be
unfolded out of its storage pocket. Weighs
around 135g.
Not every shot you want to take gives you
easy access to the viewfinder. Often for
low-down and close-up shots it is awkward
to see through the viewfinder clearly.
The Seagull right angle finder solves this
problem and allows you to get a clear view
without contorting your head or neck. It
is ideal for low-angle photography, letting
you view the image from above, rather than
having to lie flat on the ground. It is also
the perfect accessory when using a camera
on a copy stand.
The finder allows 1x and 3.25x
magnification for sharper focusing and full
360° rotation, through 30° increments. It
clicks into place at each point so you know
it’s not going to move when you apply
pressure to the eyecup. At 1x magnification
all of the screen data remains legible. The
3.25x magnification is ideal for macro work.
The roof prism construction allows the
image to be seen the right way round. The
optics system comprises nine elements
in eight groups so the image remains
bright and clear. There is a comfortable
rubber eyecup surround and adjustable
±4 dioptric correction ring. Supplied in a
pouch and with small blower brush to keep
the optics dust-free.

BlackRapid straps
After years of shooting the Seattle music
scene, photographer Ron Henry had
a flash of brilliance, which resulted in
the development of BlackRapid camera
straps. The stainless steel locking fastener
FastenR-3 connects the strap to the tripod
socket via the ConnectR. Once connected,
the camera hangs upside down, resting
securely at your side or in the small of your
back, with the lens pointing behind you.
Your EOS camera came
with a strap when you
bought it, so why change
it? Webbing straps
are not stretchy and
can cause neck strain
when carrying heavy
equipment for long
periods. A neoprene or
sling strap can improve
weight distribution and
comfort significantly.
Lens cradle
Air-cushioned strap
This lens cradle makes carrying heavy
lenses safe and easy. It works with any lens

on the camera lens mount that occurs
when only the camera is supported. The
straps allow the camera to be rotated with
the lens pointing down for times when

Trekking harness
Replace your standard webbing strap
with one designed for comfort and for
reduction of fatigue, even with a heavy
lens attached to your camera. This
stretchy neoprene strap has two rows
of AirCells along the 5.8cm-wide main
section. These small pads feel slightly
squishy to the touch – a bit like large air pockets found on
bubble wrap – and bear the weight of your EOS camera more
comfortably on your shoulder. The elasticity of the neoprene
helps too. The AirCells also help keep the strap in position on
your shoulder.
The strap fixes to the lugs on either side of your camera
and can be released quickly from the camera when needed
via two sturdy buckles. The two narrower pieces then join
together to form a short hand strap.
The neoprene material is resistant to the cold and is also
oil-resistant. Maximum length of the strap is 116cm – this can
be shortened as required via two plastic buckles.

durability along with style.

REF: R467
With the camera at your hip you can
manoeuvre easily, carry other gear or
simply have both hands free. When you’re
ready to take the shot, the camera quickly
glides up the strap into position.
For the more active
photographer BlackRapid has
designed the RS-Sport, with
integrated underarm strap
and more shapely shoulder
pad for better positioning on
your shoulder. The webbing
on the strap is 2.5cm wide
and the underarm strap
measures a generous
50.5cm, fully adjustable for a
comfortable fit.
What appealed most to
us at EOS magazine was
the fact that this comes as a
left-handed and right-handed
strap. With over a third of the
team needing a left-handed
sling strap solution, we think
that this addition to the range
is most welcome.
As with all other
BlackRapid straps this
comes with a FastenR-3 and
ConnectR as standard, plus
two ‘bumper’ clips to keep the camera
pegged where you want it when it’s resting
on your hip.

Prevent your ConnectR
from unlocking during
use with the Lock Star, a
purpose-made cover which
easily clips onto the hook
on your BlackRapid strap.
Once clipped on it can be
swung open and closed
as desired, but will keep the ConnectR
securely fastened at all other times.
Additionally the Lock Star will stop the
raised barrel of the ConnectR from coming
into direct contact with the camera body,
particularly relevant when the camera and
strap are laid aside or packed away. Fits all
BlackRapid straps.
You know how comfortable your rucksack
or backpack is when out walking, so why
not extend the same comfort to your
camera support? The Trekking harness
takes its cue from rucksacks, adapting the
neck strap into a practical solution that
distributes the weight of your camera and
lens across your neck, shoulders and upper
back. In addition you can wear the Trekking
harness underneath your usual backpack.
As well as a set of straps to attach your
main camera body, there is a second set
of straps which can take another smaller
camera or pair of binoculars on metal
D-rings higher up on the harness.
On the main padded
shoulder straps there are
two small pockets, which are
perfectly sized to keep your
memory cards near at hand.
They fasten with hook-andloop material so the pocket
contents will stay safely inside.
The loops which attach
to the camera lugs are short,
meaning that your camera
won’t swing wildly in front
of you. The camera can be brought up to
your eye in an instant as the clasps are
not fixed onto the strap; instead they slide
freely up and down, making it easy to
bring the camera to eye level. Great design
and super comfort. You will find that the
Trekking harness will reduce neck strain
DR-1 Double strap
The ultimate solution for two-camera
shooters, this strap is worn around the
shoulders and is adjustable to fit most

Wrist straps
Make your grip on the camera more
comfortable with one of these supportive
wrist straps. When you slip your right hand
through to grip the camera, the soft leather
pad provides extra stability by keeping your
hand in position, alleviating hand strain.
One end of the strap fastens to the camera
strap lug on the right side of your camera.
The other end comes attached to a slimline
plate which screws into the tripod mount
of the camera. The plate also has a socket
for fitting to a tripod without the need to
remove the strap. Both straps are fully
adjustable for a snug fit.
The wider Pro strap has a third strap
which fastens securely around your wrist
with a quick-release buckle. This means
that you can relax your grip on the camera
without dropping it. If your thumb joint
aches when gripping the camera, this strap
is ideal. If you still want the option of a neck
strap, there is a second lug on the plate and
on the left side of the camera.

extra comfort and weight reduction plus an adjustable and
detachable side strap which sits under your arm to hold
the strap in position which can be adjusted from 120cm to
160cm in length to suit a range of chest sizes.
The real plus of this strap is the camera fixing. A metal
plate with stainless steel bearings attaches to the tripod
socket of your EOS camera and then slides easily up and
down the strap on twin metal ring sliders.
This means that your camera hangs with
the lens pointing down and out of harm’s
way. And when you lift the camera to your
eye the strap stays out of the way beneath
the camera. The main strap sits on your left
shoulder, the camera and lens hangs down

The number one cause of
poor pictures is camera
shake. Lenses with builtin image stabilisation are
a major step forward,
but keeping your camera
steady is the best solution.
Tripods are the obvious
accessories for reducing
camera shake. Monopods
are a good alternative for
travelling light.
Table-top tripod
Hama Traveller Pro series tripods
There are certain features the EOS magazine team look for in a
monopod – lightweight, practical design and a spike foot. So
when we found this Fat Gecko monopod we were smitten!
Weighing only 340g but capable of supporting EOS cameras
and lenses up to 8kg, this monopod collapses down into five
sections to a compact 40cm. It has a useful metal spike under
a removable rubber stopper on the foot which can be useful
for a little extra grip on uneven terrain.
It’s made from eight layers of carbon fibre in a Z-weave
pattern. When unstrapped it almost assembles itself as the
sections are held together by a stretchy cord and slot into one
another, meaning that there are no locking nuts to tighten.
Because of the nature of the design, it does mean that this
monopod has a static height of 144cm when unfolded. But if
the benefits of a lightweight, strong and compact monopod
at an affordable price overcome this restriction then this is a
solid choice for your EOS photography.
With three-section
telescopic legs
and extendable
centre column
this versatile little
tripod is useful for
table-top work or
for portraits and
landscapes. The
centre column also
features a suction
cup at the base
for additional support when in its lowest
position. A built-in spirit level gives you
precise alignment. Max load 2kg, extends

Designed for the travelling photographer, there’s bound to be a tripod in this
series suitable for your holiday needs. Now available in three versions, the
compactness and sturdy nature of Traveller series is to be praised.
Each of the three tripods has four section legs, rubber feet, foam covers
on the grips on the upper part of the legs for a non-slip grip and takes a
maximum weight of 4kg, sufficient for the majority of EOS users. The main
frame is constructed from aluminium. Supplied with a sturdy carry bag.
The smallest in the series is the Mini, which we’ve featured for some
time now. It still remains incredibly popular as it weighs a mere 740 grams.
This highly portable and lightweight tripod packs down to a minimum height
of only 39.5cm (under 16 inches). The supplied ball-and-socket head can be
attached to the bottom of the centre column for low-angle photography. Mid-range is the Compact model, which extends to an impressive
163cm. It features the same ball socket head as the Mini version. If the head
does not quite meet your needs you can switch for your normal tripod head
for improved support and versatility.
The 170 Duo, pictured right, has adopted its name from the two main
benefits: firstly it extends to an impressive 170cm whilst still folding down
to a compact 46cm; secondly the centre column can be removed to double
as a monopod, useful in situations where a tripod is not allowed or practical.
The head is different for this model – it is supplied with a 3-way pan head
with a quick release plate. There are also spikes on the feet when you need
a little extra grip on uneven surfaces.
Fat Gecko mounts
Stick-It discs
We couldn’t believe
the sturdiness of
this monopod for
the price – and the
fact that it extends
to 170cm. This Camlinnk CMP2
monopod features a wrist strap,
ergonomically-shaped foam handle
and a retractable spike within the
rubber foot, a feature we think is
key for a useful monopod. When
not in use it folds down to 54cm and
weighs 360g, so it’s pretty portable.
Convenient for lighter weight EOS
cameras and lens combos with a
maximum load of 1kg.
With its universal 1/4 inch tripod mount
and powerful suction cups the Fat Gecko
camera mounts can be used on any nonporous surface, giving you access to more
shooting positions than a tripod. And now,
with the introduction of the Stick-It disks
(right), they can be used on even more
surfaces than before.
The double knuckle design and two-inch
metal extension tube allow for 360° tilt,
360° turn and 360° rotation. The ball joints,
sockets and upper locking knobs are made
from metal. The suction cups have a quickrelease mechanism. Weight 500g. Max load
2.5kg (two-cup);

Fat Gecko Strap Mount
When you need a sturdy support for your camera, but
haven’t got a tripod or monopod available, you can instead
use this strap solution from Fat Gecko. You can mount the
strap to any object with a circumference between 8.5 inches
(21.5cm) and 54 inches (136.8cm) - so most trees, telephone
poles, beams and columns - and be sure of a secure and
sturdy support for your camera. The Fat Gecko Strap Mount
is made up of three rugged bracket plates that conform to
the shape of the mounted object, and a rubber padding on
the back of the plates prevent the mount from slipping. There
are also holes in the bracket plates so that, if desirable, the
mount can also be screwed to a flat surface.
The strap itself is like a belt on an aeroplane
so is easy to tighten and release when finished.
It comes with a fully adjustable 1/4 inch ball
socket head for maximum versatility for the
angle of your shot. That’s what we like about
the Fat Gecko range - the possibilities that
the range of supports open up for unusual or
seemingly impossible angle shots. Maximum

video images, view and change camera
settings (shutter speed, ISO etc), focus,
shoot at intervals and transfer images all
at a distance of up to 50m (150ft). You can
wirelessly stream Live View to your device
– great for when your camera is placed in
remote locations such as bird hides. Also suitable for macro photography with its touch
focusing, fine focus control and focus stacking features. And there is no need for a nearby
WiFi network as the CamRanger creates its own ad-hoc network. This gives you complete
freedom out in the field.
Once you have captured your images you can view, download and delete images from
your camera’s memory card – all remotely and wirelessly. You can bring up the images fullscreen and zoom into the full resolution of the JPEG and RAW files to check exposure and
composition. A live histogram will help you check correct exposure.
The CamRanger attaches to your EOS camera via a single cable and comes supplied
with a soft black pouch which can be used to hang the device securely on your tripod. Also
includes an ethernet cable for firmware updates and USB-rechargeable (and replaceable)
Li-Polymer battery. Battery life varies with usage but is typically 3-6 hours. Spare batteries

of 20 metres the TriggerScout will detect moving heat and trigger within a minimum of
1/5 second. There are three sensitivity settings – full, half or quarter so that you can adjust
according to ambient temperature and the heat signature of your subject.
The sensor can be connected directly to your EOS camera’s remote trigger socket or
can be connected to the TriggerSmart MCT-1 control unit (not supplied) for increased
control over sensitivity and timing delay. Powered by 2 x AA batteries (not included) or selfpowered when connected to an existing TriggerSmart system. The sensor has a low power
consumption so good batteries should last around 100 hours.
The TriggerScout kit includes the PIR (passive infrared) sensor, weatherproof cover,
stakepod, 3-metre cable and 6° baffle to narrow the cone of sensitivity. We also supply a
Canon-specific cable adapter to make the kit work with all EOS cameras. For maximum
effectiveness and ultimate control over the activation area the TriggerScout can be used in
pairs. This means that the sensor will only trigger when both zones are activated. Similarly
this can be achieved by using the TriggerSmart IR sensor or TriggerBeam Pro which are all
available separately.

A power panner is an
electric base unit which
allows you to pan and tilt
your camera remotely.
It is ideal for wildlife
photography, but can
be used for many other
subjects. It is especially
useful when used with a
remote viewing screen
like the CamRanger.
The panner head is controlled via a hand
unit connected to the panner by a onemetre cable. However, six-metre extension
cables are available and can be linked
together to create a much longer cable. We
include a free six-metre cable with the unit;
extra cables can be purchased separately.
The tilt angle is ±15° with a pan angle of
±90°. These movements are controlled by
a 4-way rocker switch on the remote. The
speed of the movement is controlled by a
slider switch on the remote. The maximum
recommended camera weight is 2700g,
so all EOS digital and film cameras can be
used (but check the weight if a heavy lens
is fitted to the camera). Power is supplied
from four AA batteries (not included).

If you have a tripod you
need a remote release.
It eliminates the risk of
camera movement as you
press the shutter button.
Wireless releases serve
the same purpose, but
can also fire the shutter
from a greater distance.
This is useful for wildlife
photography where you
set the camera close to the
subject’s haunt and keep
watch from afar.

IR Remote Trigger
Take the difficulty out of capturing moving subjects with this infrared remote trigger from
Hama. Part of their comprehensive DCC Remote System, the IR remote trigger consists
of two units. The transmitter sends a continuous infrared beam to the receiver and the
units can be positioned up to 5 metres apart (depending on ambient light conditions); an
extension cable connects the receiver to the remote control socket of the camera. The two
units which create the beam have an integrated 1/4 inch tripod thread.
When the subject breaks the infrared beam the camera shutter fires. With the trigger
doing all the work, once you have set up the shoot you can stand well away so as not to
disturb your subject. We supply this with one camera trigger cable – choose the correct
connection type for your camera. The additional cable is available separately.

Timer remotes
Timer remote releases are perfect for sequences recorded from the same place over a set
time frame. Using a timer remote gives you complete control over the interval, frequency
and length of exposure. We have both a wired and wireless solution to choose from. For
more information on setting up your camera for time lapse, take a look at the article in the
April-June 2009 issue, pages 54-9.
Two other bits of equipment need to be taken into consideration when shooting at
intervals over a long time frame. Make sure you have a good size memory card and that
your battery is fully charged. Shooting one frame every 30 seconds over a ten-hour period
will result in 1,200 images. It’s also a good idea to turn off features which drain the battery
quickly, like the auto review facility.
Great for time-lapse photography, such as blooming flowers, and action shots, the Giga
T Pro can also be used as a simple wireless remote. It has the advantage that line-of-sight
is not required to fire the camera. It is also
ideal for wildlife photography, long exposures,
astrophotography and studio sessions.
Programmable features include a selftimer, interval timer, long exposure timer
and exposure count settings, which can be
combined. Timer sequences are available
from 1 second up to 99 hours. The Giga T
Pro provides autofocus and shutter release,
continuous shooting and bulb mode with a
100m range. The 2.4GHz frequency is licencefree worldwide.
Two camera connectors are supplied to suit
all EOS DSLRs (N3 and E3 connections).

Halo Macro LED Ring Flash
Reversing rings
This LED ring flash is the perfect pocketable lighting solution for your EOS camera. It
is well-designed and easy-to-use, whether you attach it to the lens for classic ring flash
effect, position it handheld off-camera, or even mount it to the hotshoe of your camera.
This 60-bulb LED light can work in three flash modes, as a continuous light mode or,
by half pressing the shutter, as an AF assist lamp. The angle of light from the LED bulbs
is 60°, giving you a wide spread of even light. The brightness is adjustable up to three
stops via a simple wheel. Colour temperature is 5500K ±300K.
The power output is astonishing, given that the Halo
runs on just four AA batteries. Battery life is extended
immeasurably by the low power consumption of LED
technology. The flash mode output is twice as powerful
as continuous mode. In both flash and continuous mode
the left and right sides can be fired independently for
more dynamic lighting effects. The effective flash range is
5cms to 1.5 metres. Sync speed is 1/200 second.
Small enough to carry in your coat pocket, yet
sufficient for a variety of uses as your sole lighting
solution. We particularly like the ease with which you
can adjust the power levels and that you can use this
LED ring flash as a flash or continuous light. It also has
integral mounts for use on your camera’s hotshoe as well
as on a lens. Includes eight lens adapters to fit all EF and
EF-S lenses from 52mm to 77mm filter mount.
Expand the macro potential of your lenses
(recent and old) simply by turning them
around. A reversing ring has a lens mount
on one end which attaches to the camera
and on the other end a thread which
screws to the filter mount of the reversed
lens. Made from metal for a solid thread
that won’t wear. For use with one lens at a
time. A cost-effective way of experimenting
with macro photography, and great fun!

Macro arm light
Lighting is critical for close-up work. Just
a spot of light here to reduce the shadow
and a touch of light there to illuminate the
subject can make all the difference to the
final image. You can achieve both with this
twin-arm LED light.
Simply slip the macro arm light into the
hotshoe of your EOS camera and choose a
setting of Off/Low/High for each arm. Each
LED operates at a slightly different light
level, so you can achieve eight different
levels of brightness. This light is ideal when
you have specific areas of the shot to light.
There are no cables to mess with or tuck
out of sight – the LEDs are on flexible stalks
(230mm long) and can be twisted and bent
with ease to achieve the right angle of light
for your subject. The LEDs stay cool and
are flicker-free for consistent lighting every
time. The output is equivalent to daylight
(cool white) at 5600K. The LED bulbs have
a 50,000 hour life. Maximum range of the
LEDs is around 30cm, but best used close.
Weighs 55g; powered by two 3v
CR2025 lithium batteries (supplied).

Mini studio kit
Close-up lenses
Unlike extension tubes which have no glass, close-up lenses
are essentially a sophisticated magnifying glass which you
screw to the filter mount on the front of your lens to enlarge
your subject. This set from SRB is made in the UK and includes
four close-up lenses of different dioptres, offering varying
magnification strengths. They can be used individually or
stacked together to multiply the effect. These are particularly
useful when using longer focal lengths because the magnification needed is less, so the
image suffers less degradation at close distances.
This set includes +1, +2, +4 and +10 dioptres in a fold-up case. The lenses are single
element. Choose the right set for your lens filter size. They can also be used with stepping
rings (opposite page) so buy for your largest filter mount and step down for lenses with
smaller filter mount sizes.
Extension tube set
It’s all to do with your lens. Check the
filter size on the front of your lens or
check in Everything EOS (see page
12) as we have the full list of Canon
lenses with filter sizes given.
Get closer to your subject and achieve
greater magnification whilst still
retaining autofocus functionality with
this set of Aputure extension tubes.
They are designed with all the circuitry
and mechanical coupling to maintain
autofocus and TTL auto exposure.
Extension tubes enable a lens to
focus closer than its predetermined
minimum focusing distance. Extension
tubes have no optics – they are mounted
between the camera body and lens
to create more distance between the
lens and film plane. By moving the lens
further away from the film or sensor in
the camera, the lens is forced to focus
much closer than normal.
The set contains three tubes of
different lengths: 13mm, 21mm
and 31mm. Each tube can be used
individually or in any combination to
obtain the desired magnification. The
greater the length of the tube, the closer
the lens can focus.

Hähnel Tuff TTL
Flash stand
This stand will help
you position your LED
light in the right place.
With three hotshoe slots
on top and a tripod socket on the base,
this stand is versatile and very useful. It
provides a sturdy support for your flash
or LED light.
Also a perfect replacement if you
have lost the original stand that came
with your Speedlite. Thread for tripod
mount is metal. Measures 10.5 x 8.5cm.
Canon’s latest
flash, the Speedlite
600EX-RT, is
the first to offer
wireless control
using a radio
signal. Earlier
Speedlites with
a wireless option
use optical signals.
The problem with
optical signals is
that they need
between units and
the working range
is limited to several metres.
The Hahnel Tuff TTL flash trigger works
with an ISM 2.4GHz radio signal (licencefree worldwide) and has a working range
of 200 metres, or more. There are two
parts to the trigger. The transmitter fits to
the hotshoe of your camera. The receiver
provides a hotshoe for the base of the
Speedlite. The system provides full TTL
flash metering with all EX-series Speedlites.
Digital Channel Matching eliminates the
risk of interference from other wireless
products. A single control button offers
normal TTL mode, high-speed sync (to a
maximum of 1/8000 second) and secondcurtain synchronisation. Each of the two
units is powered by two AA batteries.
Additional receivers enable you to
trigger multiple Speedlites. You can use
an unlimited number of receivers with the
one Tuff transmitter. Both the transmitter
and receiver are housed in a removeable
protective rubber cover for impact

photography. This R70 circular infrared filter from UK-based SRB-Griturn only allows
infrared rays above 720nm to pass through, offering a unique perspective on the world.
Check that your camera is infraredsensitive by holding down a button on your
TV remote and taking a photo of the end with
the bulb. If you can see the infrared signal
lamp in the photo you have captured infrared
radiation with your camera and you can start
experimenting with this filter and infrared

Circular polariser
Don’t incur unnecessary expense buying
various size filters for each lens you own.
A stepping ring allows you to step a bigger
filter size down to fit your smaller lens filter
mount. The first measurement should be
your lens thread, the second measurement
your accessory size.
Primarily designed to provide protection
from rain and grime, a UV filter will also
give you sharper,
clearer images. UV
rays often make
photos appear pale
and grey. You will
see better colour
contrast by filtering
UV rays and associated grey haze. It is
effective for colour images as well as blackand-white.
This UV filter from Hama is multi-coated
with four layers of coating and this helps
minimise flare when the lens is pointed
towards a bright light source.
Various size combinations 52mm-82mm
Half red, half clear, this Hama creative
filter has a rotating mount so that you can
position the graduated red area accurately
within your landscape. It enhances the
colours of dusk and dawn to add extra
impact and atmosphere. Often the
perceived colours of the sky cannot be
captured on camera, so this filter enables
you to deepen the reds of your sky whilst
leaving the foreground untouched.

This graduated grey filter from Hama
allows you to darken part of your image,
particularly skies, an effect not easily
recreated with software. The filter has a
small lever on the side which operates the
rotary mount so that the graduated area
of the filter can be aligned perfectly within
your shot.
This high quality
ND fader from
Light Craft
Workshop is
invaluable for
shooting bright
sunny days when long exposures would
result in blown-out skies. This ND filter
allows you to adjust the range from ND4 (2
stops) to ND400 (9 stops), though the range
will be less with wide-angle lenses. This is
explained in the information on our website
or on the leaflet supplied with the filter.
Adjusting the density of the filter is simple –
just twist the outer ring and you will see the
density increase or decrease as you turn it,
allowing you full control. The frame on the
LightCraft Workshop ND filters is incredibly
thin so vignetting is not an issue.
Star effect filter
A true 9-stop multi-coated neutral density
filter, with ultra-thin non-vignetting filter
frame. It employs advanced anti-reflection
coatings for excellent flare resistance,
particularly important in bright sunlight.
This filter from LightCraft Workshop is
high quality and produces far less of a
colour contrast than a variable ND filter
will give at the higher end of the range.
A 2-stop solid grey filter ideal for reducing
the overall brightness in your scene and
removing low-level haze. This ND4 filter
from Hama has an HTMC coating with four
layers each side for excellent transparency
and reduced flare. With a fixed density
rating it offers a good neutral colour.
Made from high grade optical glass.
Use lens filters for various
improvements in your
images. A UV filter offers
better clarity; a polariser
will elimate reflections
and enhance contrast;
an ND filter allows you
to extend exposure time.
And for creativity there
are some new diffusion,
star and graduated filters
to experiment with, ideal
if you prefer to create the
effects in-camera.
LightCraft Workshop ND
fader Mark II
Have you ever wondered how some photographers manage to get such saturated colours
in their images? It’s down to the effective use of a polarising filter. This cuts through some
of the reflected light to show you the true
colours. A polariser is the one filter which
will help every EOS user to improve and
enhance their images.
An invaluable filter for your kit bag,
a circular polariser will help eliminate
unwanted reflections on shiny surfaces
such as glass and water and will increase
colour saturation and contrast.
Made by SRB Griturn in the UK this
affordable range of polarising filters are
multi-coated and made from optical glass,
thereby reducing lens flare.

a polariser; the image to the right was taken
shortly after with a polariser filter attached.

Battery grip with infrared remote
Pro cube charger
The stylish and ergonomic design of this battery grip from Hähnel improves the handling
of your camera and doubles the available power. Built-in power management regulates
the power output to the camera. Many of the models are fitted with a vertical shutter
release, making shooting with the camera in a vertical position just as comfortable as
shooting horizontally. Having the vertical
grip allows the user to shoot from a more
comfortable and stable position thereby
giving easier handling.
Most of the grips include an infrared
remote control and a built-in infrared
receiver. There’s also the option to use
AA batteries instead of one or two of
the camera’s standard batteries, offering
flexibility in situations where you can’t
charge your camera battery. Batteries are
available separately.

and versatility of a battery grip fitted

Camera batteries from Hähnel*
We regularly use these replacement batteries from
Hähnel when working on images for the magazine
and find them as reliable as the originals. These
batteries are environmentally-friendly, feature a
very high energy density and have no memory
effect. A built-in microprocessor safeguards
the cells by limiting maximum voltage and by
protecting against deep discharge, short circuit and
Recently added to the range are two Extreme
batteries – so called for their higher capacity, durability and maximum reliability. Each
battery is injected with silicone for a tough, shock-absorbing construction and extra
electrical insulation. In a test environment the new HLX-E6 battery outperformed the
original Canon LP-E6 battery pack by 24%, meaning you need to change your battery less
often when out shooting. The new Extreme batteries are available as E6 and E8 models.

It is with regret that we are currently
only able to fulfil orders for camera
batteries to most destinations within UK
mainland - but not all (please see the
website or phone for more details). This
is because Lithium-Ion batteries, the
type that most EOS cameras currently
use, are classed as ‘Dangerous Goods’
by all UK carriers, including Royal Mail
and ParcelForce. ‘Dangerous Goods’
are articles or substances which are
capable of posing a risk to health,
safety, property or the environment.
The restrictions have been put in place
because of increasing safety concerns
regarding lithium-ion batteries in transit,
raised by the aviation industry.

Excess humidity can be destructive to
equipment. Fungus that forms between
lens elements and on glass surfaces in
humid dark environments is either difficult
or expensive to remove. The dri+Cap
system helps to maintain equipment
at the proper RH (relative humidity)
levels – ideally between 35% and 45%.
The dri+Cap absorbs moisture that can
otherwise turn into mould, particularly
relevant when travelling in climates with
heavy temperature changes.
Each dri+Cap has a compartment
which holds a sachet of dessicant. Four
sachets are provided in the kit and
extra sachets are available separately.
Simply insert a fresh sachet into the cap
compartment. Screw the compartment lid
on to seal the cap. Now install the cap and
the rubber ‘O’ ring ensures an air-tight
seal against the mount flange on either
the lens or camera body. Be sure to check
the dessicant sachet at regular intervals.

padded dividers can be changed to accommodate your needs
within a generous space. The main compartment has two zips for
access, so that you can get your equipment out quickly and easily.
There are small feet on the bottom so the bag will stand well
when put on the floor. There is a headphone outlet point so you can listen to music and

Canon’s range of semi-hard

solution, not least because they can

We always like the style of canvas camera
bags and these two are no exception.
Constructed from traditional materials these
canvas and leather bags are designed to
withstand the elements and are rugged,
durable and waterproof.
The smaller Neopine bag (right) is large
enough for a small to mid-size EOS camera
(for example, 1100D, 700D or 70D) with short
lens attached. A soft cotton divider allows
you to protect a separate lens in the bag.
There are three additional pockets, ideal for
a battery, filter and even one big enough to
accommodate a small tablet. The bag fastens
with a brass buckle. The strap is adjustable in
length and made of the same canvas material
as the bag. Weight 805g, internal dimensions
25 x 19 x 13cm.
The larger canvas kit bag is large enough to carry a
comprehensive system of 1-2 camera bodies and 2-4
lenses and/or flashguns. There is a large zipped pocket
under the buckled flap, plus pockets either end. The
bag can be carried by the leather handgrip or by the
attached adjustable shoulder strap which is fitted with a
non-slip pad.

Waterproof camera bag
Take your EOS camera safely on your next adventure with
this protective bag from Overboard. Weighing only 220g, this
durable bag offers the best solution for keeping your camera
and lens dry in wet situations. You roll over the neck of the bag
four times and clip the buckles together to create a watertight
air pocket inside the bag. It’s constructed from tough PVC
tarpaulin and has welded seams, making it 100% waterproof.
When used properly, the bag will float and is submersible. The
bag is shaped to allow for a camera with lens attached to sit
lens down within the bag, so your camera is easily retrieved
from the bag and you’re ready to shoot. Four D-rings allow you
to attach various accessories.
The 6-litre bag is suitable for smaller EOS cameras (internal
height 22cm, top width 17cm, bottom width 12cm, depth
12cm), whilst the larger 15-litre bag can accommodate larger models (internal height 38cm,
top width 25cm, bottom width 15cm, depth 20cm). The smaller bag has a lining which,
being slighty smaller than the outer layer, effectively suspends the camera. There is also an
elasticated mesh accessories pocket and a fully adjustable shoulder strap. The 15-litre bag
has a thick padded base for protection, two mesh pockets and two handy shoulder straps
for convenience. A large reflective panel on the front helps make you more visible.

Sensor cleaning kits & refills
This mini kit offers a low-cost wet sensor cleaning pack, ideal for those just starting out
with wet sensor cleaning or people looking for a small self-contained kit to pack in their
camera bag. Wet cleaning should only be undertaken after dry sensor cleaning methods
to ensure that all loose particles are removed prior to swabbing.
The kit includes a 10ml bottle of Sensor Solution
cleaning fluid, five individually wrapped swabs and a
comprehensive step-by-step guide for using the cleaning kit.
The Sensor Solution is fast evaporating and non-flammable.
It is effective on oil, grease and stubborn dust particles
and safe for use on all sensors. The five swabs are sized
specifically for your camera sensor and are soft and lint-free.
They are manufactured in a clean room environment and
individually sealed for one-time use. You should follow the
comprehensive instructions included inside the kit to ensure a
safe and effective clean.
Available in three sizes – check your sensor size
REF: K080
All kits £17.95
You never know how stubborn that bit of dust is going to be. Rather than trying to
predict which cleaning method will shift it, make sure you have the only kit you need to
cover all scenarios. It includes tools for all three steps in the cleaning process – blow,
brush, swab – all in one compact travel pouch.
Start with the silicone blower, move onto the DSLR statically-charged brush and then
blitz the dust with the wet swab solution. There are full instructions packed in the pouch,
but if you need more advice take a look at the article available online.
Contents include:
– One 59ml bottle of cleaning fluid
– Three camera chamber swabs
– Ten micro-fibre sensor swabs
– DSLR sensor brush
– Silicone jumbo blower
– Pack of 25 PEC Pads (for lens cleaning)
– Large microfibre cleaning cloth
– Comprehensive instructions

All kits £78.95
Included as standard in our sensor cleaning kits
these DSLR swabs are manufactured using extremely
soft and highly absorbent lint-free micro-fibre cloth
to produce a superior cleaning action. The design
incorporates a stiff handle with a flexible blade tip
which makes it easy to apply the correct pressure
when cleaning. Use with Eclipse fluid for best results.
Each swab is individually sealed in a foil packet for
single use. Supplied in packs of 10.

An ideal companion
for Eclipse fluid for

ECLIPSE sensor cleaner
dries as quickly as it can be
applied leaving no residue,
making it safe for use on
all sensor types, lenses
and filters. Bottle contains
approx. 59ml fluid and
comes with a dropper tool
to dispense as needed.
Heavy duty for heavy use, Snug-It Pro skins are
custom designed for a glove-like fit. All buttons,
dials, sensors and compartments are carefully
moulded over and around for a completely
functional yet rugged skin. Sockets for plugs and
compartments for batteries, cards etc. have flaps
over them, allowing for easy access. The ridges,
text and graphics mimic the Canon-specific details
on the camera body so you can still see and feel
your way around the camera and buttons with ease.
The skins are made from powder-infused silicone which is specially formulated to resist
debris collecting on the surface. This material offers both a smooth texture and a secure
grip on your Canon EOS camera. The Snug-It also helps reduce camera noise, particularly
important when shooting video. Not suitable for use when a battery grip is attached. Also
includes an LCD screen protector in the box for complete protection.

This powerful silicone blower
is odourless and provides
a good blast of air to shift
specks of dust from your
sensor and camera body.
Being made of silicone means
it is far less likely to degrade
than rubber so you don’t risk
contaminating your sensor
further with debris.
The blower has a soft
silicone tip making it safe to
use inside your camera. It can stand upright
on its flat base to keep the nozzle from
making contact with dirty surfaces.

GGS Removeable
LCD Protectors
Larmor protectors
Our bestselling screen protector. All
the advantages of an optical glass
screen protector, but not permanently
attached to your camera. The GGS
screen protector comes with a built-in
viewfinder eyecup mount. Remove the
camera’s eyecup and slip the accessory
in place. The screen protector is held
firmly in position without any adhesive.
Easy to fit, remove and refit as needed.
Eyepiece attachments can still be used.
Larmor LCD Protectors provide superior shock
absorbency and scratch protection for your camera’s
LCD. Larmor protectors adhere to the LCD via
electrostatic adsorption. This self-adhesive design
means the end of annoying sticky marks and glue
left behind from the more common stick-on style
protectors. This method of fixing also means that you
are not left with annoying bubbles under the surface.
Featuring a protection system manufactured
from optical glass, layered with anti-explosion and
anti-breakage film to ensure maximum strength and
protection. Touch screens continue to work.
Larmor protectors are made from 0.5mm optical
glass, which allows for 90% light transmission, making
the protectors ultra clear and ultra thin. They are easy
and quick to put on and are supplied with a super soft
wet cleaning cloth. At EOS magazine we have fitted the
Larmor protector on our EOS 650D and almost forgot
it was on there. The vari-angle LCD screen still folds
inwards and clicks into place without impediment.

MK200 microphone
This second-generation microphone produces high fidelity sound of broadcast quality. It
uses dual shockmounts to absorb any unwanted mechanical vibrations and handling noise.
The peak signal indicator shows the user when the sound is too loud and is easily adjusted
by selecting a lower dB level using the -10dB / 0 dB /
+10dB switch. For outdoor sound recordings, simply slip
the Deadcat windshield (included) over the microphone for
better quality sound.
For times when you want to position the microphone
away from the camera there’s an external mic holder.
Attach the microphone to the mic holder via the hot
shoe and 3.5mm audio socket. You can then move the
microphone up to 8 metres away. It has an adjustable
swivel head and a 1/4 inch thread on the bottom so that
you can attach it to a suitable support.

Professional loupe
This loupe provides a clear one-to-one
or magnified view of your LCD screen. In
magnification mode, the loupe provides 3x
enlargement of the LCD via a focusing lens
and a rubber eyecup which can be rotated
to suit left or right eye shooting. You can
also flip the eyepiece up to see a shaded
direct view of the screen without the magnification
(shown right). The good-sized eyecup means that
extraneous light is eliminated for maximum clarity.
The viewfinder loupe attaches to the camera using
the supplied screen protector. The protector has
a self-adhesive edging which keeps it fixed to the
camera. The loupe clips on to the protector and can
be fitted and removed easily as required.
If you use two cameras for movie work, buy a
second screen protector and use the one loupe

Canon instruction manuals & software
We supply instruction manuals for most Canon consumer products, past and present,
including cameras, Speedlites and accessories. Where the original is not available we
supply a wire-bound reprint (opens flat for easy reference).
Did you find that your latest camera only has a manual supplied on disk? We also
offer a service for printing manuals which are only supplied as a PDF document
on CD. In many cases you have the choice of A6, A5 or A4 reprints.
EOS magazine is also the sole UK dealer for original Canon software packs.
The kit contains everything you need to link your camera to your computer
and manipulate your images. If you have lost your disk or have bought an EOS
camera second-hand, you will benefit from having the original disk.
Later model packs also include DPP (Digital Photo Professional), Canon’s own
RAW processing software.
