Accessories for your Canon camera
Inspiration for your EOS photography
New inspiration, old-style service
As I write we’re merely days away from The Photography Show and we can’t wait to
make the trip up to the NEC in Birmingham to see what the world of photography
has in store for us in 2015. With Canon’s latest campaign carrying the slogan
‘Come and see’, it really does emphasise that there’s nothing quite like getting
hands-on with product.
Clearly we could be talking ourselves out of business here, but as we’ve been
selling accessories via mail order since BWWW (before world wide web) we like to
think we’ve got it covered. As the heading on the right says, we offer no-fuss returns
and the EOS ladies are always happy to chat over the phone if you have a query.
As we search for new products for each issue of the catalogue, it’s interesting
to reflect that what was once only achievable via an accessory is more and more
frequently incorporated into the latest EOS cameras. Take the interval timer, for
example – this made its first appearance on the EOS 7D Mark II last autumn. Or
integrated sensor cleaning, introduced with the EOS 400D. Even creative filters
(seven on the new 760D, for example), though there’s nothing yet in-camera that
can replicate the new twilight filter (page 3) or starburst filter (page 11).
There’s still plenty of scope for new and interesting accessories. Take the
new WaterWeight on page 28 – clever stuff from a new UK-based company
called Inspired PhotoGear. We also really like the Light Blaster (page 3) and will
be rummaging amongst our slides to see just how creative we can get with this
new light modifier. So whatever catches your eye and inspires you this issue, rest
assured that your order will be backed up by our old-school style customer service.
Happy shooting from the EOS magazine shop team

Light Blaster
Project, MODIFY and create
graduated filter
This filter can be used to create
a late afternoon/early evening
twilight effect, ideal for situations
where you don't have as much
control over the light as you
would like. The filter graduates
softly from a darkish purple-blue
at the top of the filter through a
pink horizon in the centre into a
clear bottom section.
An essential piece of
kit for any keen landscape
photographer's bag.

This handy, all-in-one accessory gives
you control over white balance and colour
management in your images, speeding up
and simplifying any later editing you might
do. It combines a colour reference, grey
card and a translucent white balance filter.
All attached together in a slim plastic cover,
you can flip to any section of the ProDisk
as you need it and stand it upright when
shooting. Comes with a neckstrap to ensure
it’s always close to hand when you need it
to achieve that perfect shot.

The Light Blaster is a new kind of light modifier.
Rather than simply shaping one coloured light
source, it enables you to project an image onto a subject or a
background. This offers ultimate creative freedom, all by adding your Speedlite,
Canon lens and a 35mm slide of your choosing. By using an ordinary lens you can
focus the light from your Speedlite and control the size of your projection – 35mm to
blast an entire wall; 200mm to paint a heart on a chest.
The concept is simple, the creative possibilities endless. You can project messages
behind your subject and create patterns and realistic backgrounds only achievable
beforehand with heavy and expensive backdrops. If you don’t own any suitable slides,
you can make your own from digital images using templates for Photoshop, Illustrator
and more on a slide-compatible printer or company offering digital-to-slide conversion.
Fits all Canon EF and EF-S lenses and Speedlites.

Canon LP-E6N
The Canon LP-E6N battery, introduced with
the EOS 7D Mark II, is a replacement for
the Canon LP-E6 battery. It’s also backward
compatible with all EOS models which
take the LP-E6 battery pack, but with the
‘N’ version having an additional 65 mAh of
storage capacity (1865 mAh vs. 1800 mAh)
to its advantage, meaning it will last longer.

information you need to get to grips with
the RAW file format. David Taylor offers a
step-by-step guide to working with RAW
images and explains why the RAW file is
the equivalent of a film negative. It covers
processes such
as demosaicing
and white balance,
interpreting and
converting images,
applying all
adjustments such
as tone curves,

Foundation course new
In a new series of books from Ammonite
Press, publishers of the popular Expanded
Guide series, come three comprehensive
self-contained course books. Each includes
a structured tutorial on its chosen subject,
an informative lesson and revision guide,
plus practical projects to put your newfound skills to the test.
These books are ideal if you’re

Landscape Photography
Tackling landscape photography
requires you to be of a certain disposition,
says David Taylor. Ruggedness is key,
as you’ll often spend hours outside to
capture the essence of the great outdoors
in beautiful, dramatic
images. Empathy for
the natural world is
key too. So if you’ve
got what it takes, this
book will teach you

Canon lens hoods
help prevent lens flare
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.

White lens hoods
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.

When you are in the field, you need quick
and accurate answers, yet your camera
manual is over 200 pages long. As a
solution Blue Crane, makers of the popular
series of EOS training DVDs (page 8), has
come up with the inBrief series of camera
guides so you can quickly get the answers
you want when you need them most.
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 colourcoded index on the front page (below)
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 replacement for
your manual, but it will serve as a ready
reminder of what functions are available
and how to use them.

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
significant temperature changes.
Each dri+Cap has a compartment which
holds a sachet of dessicant. Four sachets
are provided in the kit. Simply insert a
fresh sachet into the cap compartment.
Screw the compartment lid on to seal the
cap. Now install

Microfibre cloth
Lens cleaning pen
This handy little lens pen from Hama
is a must – it easily shifts dust and
greasy marks from your lens and other
glass surfaces, like your LCD screen or

retractable brush for getting rid of small
loose particles, whilst the other end is
a special velvet-like pad. It’s the special
carbon-based compound though which
is the true hero. This dry cleaning agent
is contained within the cap and the pad
is replenished with this compound when
the cap is on, ready for use the next time.
Rub the pad gently over greasy marks and
fingerprints and watch them disappear.

We all know that we ought to read the
instruction manual that came with our EOS
from cover to cover. Yet with manuals
for recent DSLRs running to well over
300 pages it’s a daunting – and often

Insights to Travel
British Photographic
An important way to learn about
photography is to understand the thought
process, motivation and settings that were
involved in the creation of an image. The
how, why and when the image was shot
are all critical elements in a successful
image. How often though can you have the
photographer there to explain it to you?
Nina Bailey’s new Insight series of
photography eBooks will do just that.
In each of these two eBooks dedicated
to travel photography, Nina picks one
hundred of her favourite travel images and
explains what went into creating them.
Each image is explored in detail, giving
background information, the settings used
on her equipment, the creative vision and
thought process before taking the shot.
Whilst one of Nina
Bailey’s favourite
pastimes is
she’s not one
to forget the
beauty of Britain
and the many
photographic opportunities
they present. That’s why she’s written this
new eBook – to celebrate the photogenic
qualities of the British Isles throughout the
seasons. The eBook is broken up into the
seasons, with ideas for suitable subjects
and locations each month.
It’s too easy to forget the familiar. So,
try and be a tourist on your own doorstep.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you
may find just round the corner from your
own front door.

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 ND filters is
incredibly thin so vignetting is not an issue.

neck (using the included neck strap) and
hold it against your screen whenever
you want to take a quick glance while
in live view. Then simply rotate the

The LCD monitor on the
back of your digital
camera is vulnerable,
particularly to scratches.
A protective screen will
help to keep it safe and is
much cheaper to replace
if any damage occurs.
The right light is critical to
a successful photo. Make
your light work for you
by diffusing, bouncing or
even colouring your flash
for dramatic effects. LED
lights are also a great
option as they provide
continuous lighting for
your subject.

Larmor protectors
Larmor LCD protectors provide superior
shock absorbency and scratch protection
for your camera’s LCD. They adhere to
the LCD via electrostatic adsorption. This
method of fixing also means that you are
not left with annoying bubbles under the
surface or glue residue to clean when you
finally remove the protector.
These sturdy protectors are made from
anti-explosion and anti-breakage film,
layered with 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.
Touch screens also continue to work.

Slimlite LED light box
Inspired by John Humphrey’s pressed flowers in the ‘How was it shot?’ feature in the
April-June 2015 issue? Some of those shots were created with the assistance of a
small light box, showing the delicacy and detail of his translucent flowers. Light boxes
have come a long way over the years, with reduction in size and improvement in light
transmission, as shown by these two slim light boxes from Kaiser.
The powerful LEDs in this compact, ultra-slim daylight light box will provide sufficient
illumination for detailed photography, like pressed flowers, and also for viewing
transparent originals. The special light conducting and reflecting technology allows
the light to be uniformly distributed, even in the corners. It’s powered by batteries (not
included) – 6 x AAA for the small slimlite and 6 x AA for the medium version. There is
also a port for a 9V mains adapter plug (not included).
A protective cover is included for safe storage and transportation. Colour temperature
approximately 5000K. Approx. life of LEDs is 10,000 hours.

Hot shoe adapter
Many photographers use their flashguns
with an RC remote release these days, but
not all flashguns have a standard PC socket
into which to plug the receiver cable. The
Kaiser hot-shoe adapter will solve this
problem: this adapter accepts the flash gun
in the shoe and the 30cm cable with 3.5mm
jack plug will connect to the receiver. The
hot shoe adapter base has a 1/4 inch thread
and can therefore be mounted with the flash
on a tripod; alternatively it will slot into your
camera’s hot shoe. Your flashgun will then
be triggered when a signal is received from
the transmitter. Simple, but so useful.

Delving into the world
of close-up and macro

mean a new specialist
lens. Instead you can
experiment with your
existing lens using
reversing rings, close-up
lenses and extension tubes.
Reversing rings
Coupling rings
go through the looking glass
DOUble the lens
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!
Autofocus is not possible with a
reversing ring as there are no connections,
so you’ll need to focus manually on your
subject. For a reversing ring that retains
autofocus, try the autofocus reversing
rings on the opposite page.
For more information on reversing rings
(and coupling rings), take a look at the
article ‘Reverse vision’ in July-September
2011 issue, pages 54-59.

Magnifying glass for your lens
Collapsible and light
FLIP your lens and retain full control
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 handy
device provides
a touch of extra
light by reflecting
backlighting onto
small subjects
– excellent
for softening
when shooting
outdoors. The reflector material is silver
one side and white the other. The reflector
is positioned by pushing your lens through
the elasticated hole. The central hole
measures 7.5cm and the overall diameter
is 31cm. Folds down to 14cm.
This autofocus reverse lens adapter, designed specifically to fit Canon EOS cameras,
allows a lens to be reverse-mounted onto your EOS camera body for macro photography
while also transferring all of the control functions.
Auto reversing rings maintain the electrical connection between the camera and lens
so you can enjoy full and convenient control of your lens even though it’s mounted backto-front. One ring attaches to the camera mount and the front of the lens is fixed to this
using the filter mount. The second ring attaches to the lens mount. As the rings space
the lens further from the camera than a normal reversing ring (page 14), you also gain
some extra magnification.
The adapter transmits all of the information and data from the lens to the camera
body, including autofocus. The connecting ring in this kit is made of aluminium and the
maximum cord length is 70cm. The coiled cord means that you don’t have excess cord
hanging down in your way. (Please note that autofocus may not be available depending
on the amount of light entering the camera at the time.)
Kit includes: reverse lens adapter for EOS cameras plus four stepping rings in sizes
58mm, 67mm, 72mm and 77mm.

Halo macro LED ring flash
portable led light for flash and continuous light
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
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 the fact 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.

Extension tube set
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.
We shot a series of images on an
EOS 5D Mark II with EF 50mm lens
attached using the various combinations
of tubes (seven in total). The maximum
magnification we achieved with all three
tubes stacked together was ten times
greater than with no extension tube,
giving us true macro photography.
Best used on EF and EF-S lenses
with shorter focal lengths as these offer
greater magnification.

Velbon super mag slider
essential eos kit For precision and focus stacking
Macro photography can pose difficulties for even those with the steadiest of hands and
the greatest patience. The Velbon Super Mag Slider allows smooth, precise four-way
camera alignment without you having to move your tripod every time you want to make
an adjustment.
The slider fits onto your tripod via 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch threaded holes and your
camera screws securely onto a cork pad on top of the slider. You can then move your
camera forwards or backwards (by up to 60mm) and left or right (by up to 30mm) by
increments using the ridged knobs on the side of the slider. These two movable bases
can easily be separated (using
the allen key provided) if you
only require movement in one
Made from lightweight but
durable magnesium alloy, the

Reflecta scanner
Video on DSLRs is here to
stay. When you’re ready
to start experimenting
with movie-making, here’s
a few essential accessories
to get you going. There
are more on our website.
Speedy slide and film converTER
Still got boxes of slides and negatives
gathering dust in a cupboard? Why not
digitise your collection using the Reflecta
x9 film scanner? Battery or mains operated
(battery included), it can be used anywhere
and at less than two seconds per scan
makes for a speedy and convenient way
to convert your images, automatically
changing negatives to positives.
Conversion from film to digital is very
simple. Just load your slides or negatives
into the appropriate carrier and slide into
the slot on the scanner. Two carriers
are supplied – one will hold a strip of six
negatives and the other will accommodate
three mounted 35mm slides. No computer
is needed, as the scanned images are
saved to an SD/SDHC card (not included)
which slots into the back. The film is
illuminated by a built-in white LED light
and images can be viewed immediately
on the 2.4 inch LCD display screen on the
scanner, or you can connect the scanner
to your TV or computer for a larger view.
Exposure and cropping is automatic, but
compensation of up to +/- 2EV is available
if needed. If the images need a bit of
tweaking, you can then edit them on a
computer using the image editing software
A 35mm slide will produce an image
size of 2592 x 1728 pixels. Although this is
a lower resolution than would be obtained
using a camera and slide copier or flatbed
scanner, it is fast and inexpensive and
the images produced are more than big
enough to display on any computer screen,
HDTV or output as a 10x8 inch print.
Included with the scanner: USB and
TV-out cables, holder for three mounted
slides up to 3.2mm thickness, holder for
film strips (up to six images), lithium-ion
battery, AC adapter, cleaning brush, image
editing software (compatible with Windows
and Mac) plus full user instructions.

Focusing levers
An easier way to focus & zoom
If your slides or film need cleaning before
scanning, we recommend PEC-12 spray. It
won’t damage the emulsion on the film’s
surface and, when used with a soft lint-free
cloth like PEC-PADS, the only thing left behind
is a clean surface.
Wouldn’t it be great
to recreate some
of those beautiful
smooth focus pulls
seen on TV and in
films? It’s difficult to
achieve with your
Canon lens; after all,
it’s not what they
were designed for.
These focusing levers
provide a simple but innovative solution.
The easy-to-attach lever (supplied in two
lengths) allows you to adjust the focus
or zoom on your lens in a precise and
controlled manner, allowing you to achieve
smooth and gentle transitions.
The F-Rings come in size bands and
can be fitted to either the focus or zoom
ring of your lens. The size refers to the lens
diameter, not the filter size. The easiest
way to measure the diameter of your lens
is to use a vernier caliper. Otherwise,
measure the circumference of your lens
with a tape measure at the point at which
you want to fit the F-Ring, then divide that
measurement by Pi (3.14) to calculate the
diameter of your lens.

Deluxe video raincover
plenty of room to manoeuvre
When shooting video in challenging
conditions such as rain or snow your
camera needs protection from the
elements. This padded cover is waterresistant for wet conditions with clear
panels at the rear and top for easy viewing
of the LCD screen and controls. It is also
well-insulated and features three internal
pockets which can hold heat packs (not
included) to keep the camera battery – not
to mention your hands – warm in freezing
weather. Elasticated cuffs on either side
give you easy access to all of the controls.
The camera can easily be inserted
into the cover with lens attached, with zips at the base ensuring the cover stays closed
securely around the camera. If required, the zips can be opened to allow the camera to
be mounted on a tripod with the cover still in place. There is an adjustable (by drawstring)
aperture at the front of the cover for a short lens. For longer lenses (up to 26cm long)
a padded, water-resistant lens cover (included) can be attached to extend the cover,
keeping your lens dry and protected too.
The clear panel at the rear can be opened to allow an LCD viewing loupe to be fitted.
A separate cover (included) can be attached at the rear to cover a viewfinder loupe. The
loupe cover can also double up as a viewing hood in bright conditions. Dimensions:
approximately 47cm wide x 30cm deep.

MK200 microphone
Professional loupe
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.
REF: R471 £119.99
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. 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 for both. Dimensions: outer (screen
and border) 71 x 57mm; inner size (clear
screen) 60 x 45.5mm.
Designed for 3” LCD screens with 4:3 ratio.

Heavy-duty cover
new design for ultimate comfort
This fully waterproof cover also 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.
Manufactured from a comfortable polycotton material, this
lightweight vest has thirteen different sized pockets for maximum
versatility. It closes at the front by a zip and a pop stud.
On the front there are two deep cargo-style zipped pockets, two
good-sized document pockets situated behind two smaller outer
breast pockets and a handy mini pocket on one shoulder for your
spare memory card or battery. On the rear a large zipped pocket
with access from either side stretches across your lower back.
Designed for shooting in even difficult weather conditions, the
vest has a mesh lining for good ventilation during warmer months,
while two handwarmer pockets behind the main cargo pockets can provide warmth for
you and your equipment in the winter. A reinforced canvas panel across the shoulders
and upper back area give the shooting vest strength and durability for carrying all the
accessories you need when out and about.There’s also a detachable press pass holder,
two pen holders, a mini utility pocket and two zipped inner pockets. On the shoulders
there are twin epaulettes and a single D-ring.
An integral lightweight hood offers protection from rain as well as the heat of the sun
and tucks away in a zipped enclosure when not required.
Available in six sizes:
Medium - length 66cm, waist/chest 92cm (36”)
Large - length 70cm, waist/chest 100cm (40”)
X-Large - length 72cm, waist/chest 112cm (44”)
XX-Large - length 74cm, waist/chest 120cm (48”)
XXX-Large - length 78cm, waist/chest 128cm (50”)
Not every shot you want to take gives you
easy access to the viewfinder. The Seagull
right angle finder solves this problem and
allows you to get a clear view without
contorting your head and neck. It is ideal
for low-angle photography, letting you view
the image from above, rather than having
to lay flat on the ground.
The finder slots onto the viewfinder
and 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 look through the eyecup.
The optics system comprises nine

500mm mirror lens
Doughnuts without the added
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, 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 postprocessing, you can lift the contrast as
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.

What’s more, some of the skins are available

The ability to print decent-sized panoramics has long been a desire in the EOS magazine
office, but not possible previously without a roll-fed printer. Thankfully Fotospeed has the
solution – purpose-sized photo papers which can be used in top-fed inkjet printers sized
A4 and upwards.
These high quality photo papers measure 210 x 594mm, giving you a 3:1 ratio. We
have selected our two favourite paper finishes: Photo Smooth Pearl is a natural white,
heavyweight, resin-coated 290gsm inkjet paper with a lovely pearl finish; Platinum
Baryta is a 300gsm paper with a natural base colour and smooth ‘unglazed’ glossy look.
In addition there is a test pack which contains four sheets of each of the six different
finishes so that you can experiment with the finish that suits you. 25 sheets per pack
(24 in the test pack). Templates for guidance on image placement within Photoshop are
downloadable free of charge from the shop website.

Take CONTROL of your EOS wirelessly
The CamRanger provides wireless control of your EOS camera via a free dedicated app
on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch and now also on your Android handheld device
or from your Mac (PC version in beta). It enables you to shoot still or 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, giving you freedom to roam.
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 full-screen 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
are available separately. Dimensions 10cm x 6cm x 1.5cm; weight 115g.

TriggerSmart is a unique, affordable motioncapture system. It is designed to capture images
using a number of different ways to trigger your
camera: sound, light, infrared beam-breaking and
movement. TriggerSmart can be used with a variety
of stills and video cameras, including Canon digital
and film SLR cameras.
TriggerSmart’s sensors are controlled and enhanced by the MCT-1 control unit, which
can be used to adjust sensitivity and introduce delays in triggering the camera. Choose
single exposure or continuous shooting over given time spans.
TriggerSmart makes shooting images that would normally be difficult or impossible to
capture very simple to achieve. For example, you could photograph fruit falling into water
using the sound trigger, a wild animal using the infrared beam breaking mode or fireworks
going off by using the light intensity sensor. The TriggerSmart system opens up endless
new and exciting opportunities for your photography.
The TriggerSmart kit contains everything you need to get going: the MCT-1 controller,
IR/LIS receiver, infrared transmitter and sound sensor, two mini tripods, two control cables,
camera trigger cable (N3 and E3) and 2° baffle.

Extend the capabilities of your CamRanger with the PT Hub and panner kit. This clever kit allows you to control the movement of the
power panner from within the CamRanger app. This means that you can move your camera via pan and tilt motions remotely and so
keep your subject in the frame at all times. And then, if you need to refocus the camera
to compensate, you have all the controls at your fingertips within the same app.
You can rotate the MP360 motorised tripod head through the full 360 degrees, tilt
it by 15 degrees up or down and pan it diagonally, all via the CamRanger app on your
device. The maximum recommended camera weight for the panner is 2700g, so all EOS

As well as the obvious application for advanced capture of wildlife, the Hub is
also useful for panoramas and video capture. You can control the speed, angle and
movement of the panner head, all wirelessly. It will also allow you to create moving timelapse photography. Because the power panner head offers smooth movement and there
is no need to touch the camera, the results achieved look highly professional.

Wireless Timer
Fully programmable
The Viltrox JY-710 is a versatile four
channel 2.4GHz wireless remote control
and intervalometer that is easy to use on
any Canon camera. Like many remote
control devices, it comprises a hand-held
transmitter (approximately 153 x 38 x
18mm) powered by two AAA batteries
(included), and a receiver (also powered
by two AAAs) that can be optionally fitted
to the camera’s hot shoe.
If you’re using a Speedlite, the receiver
can be left to hang freely as it weighs very
little and does not require any electrical
connection with the hot shoe. The
receiver connects to the camera’s remote
socket using a short coiled adapter cable.
The transmitter has a two stage shutter
release button that functions like the
camera’s except that it also has a slide
lock for ‘bulb’ exposures. Navigating the
screen options and setting the timers is
simple thanks to the multi-controller SET
button (same as on EOS cameras).
The timer has three basic modes:
Delay – This allows you to set up a timed
delay of up to 99 hours, 59 minutes and
59 seconds to a resolution of one second.
Press the timer start/stop button and
the unit will begin to count down until it
reaches zero, at which point the camera will
be triggered.
Long – Use this for timing long exposures.
When you press the timer start/stop button,
the unit will wait for the programmed delay
time and then release the shutter for the
long exposure duration you set (which
can be up to 99 hours, 59 minutes and 59
Intvl – Select the interval mode to
automatically fire the shutter at regular
intervals set by the timer. The exposure can
either be set by the camera or by the ‘Long’
timer in the JY-710. The number of repeat
exposures can be set from 1 to 399 or can
be set to repeat indefinitely.

Backpack-style strap
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.

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-and-loop material so
the pocket contents will stay safely inside.
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

Wrist straps
Improve the grip on your eos
Make your grip on the camera more
comfortable with one of these supportive
wrist straps. When you slip your right hand

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.

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 on your right hip.

Tripods can be unwieldy and
uncomfortable to carry any distance.
This tripod strap solves these problems
by comfortably distributing the weight
across your shoulder, leaving your hands free for moving around
and shooting. The large shoulder pad is made of neoprene, which is
ultra-comfy and slightly stretchy but also strong enough to absorb
considerable weight. Nylon straps on each end of the shoulder pad
are adjustable to fit most popular tripods. The tripod can easily be
attached and released using the quick release clips, allowing for rapid
set-up as soon as the shooting location is reached.
For added comfort, the neoprene shoulder pad is reinforced by
additional elastic webbing and backed with slip-proof material to
prevent the strap from sliding off your shoulder as you move around.

anti-perspiration layer on the inside and a
small pocket for extra memory card on the
outside. It’s compatible with the harness
(above) as it uses the same quick release
buckle on both, meaning you can switch
the camera easily between straps.
To fit, attach the buckle loop onto the
right hand lug on your EOS camera. Then
put the cuff on your wrist and thread the
other buckle through the wide webbed
loop. Then clip the buckle together and the
cuff will fasten securely round your wrist,
with nothing to obstruct your hand.
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.
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.

RS-7 Curve
RS-Sport strap
With the RS-7 Curve strap,
ergonomics are key. It’s
designed and shaped to curve
perfectly around your shoulder,
meaning that the weight of your
camera is evenly distributed.
Pictured right.
For the more active photographer
BlackRapid has designed the RSSport, 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. Best of all, it
comes in two versions – righthanded and left-handed.
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.

The RS-W1 is the

Every so often an accessory comes along
that we think is just so obvious, we can’t
believe no-one else thought of it before.
The WaterWeight from UK-based Inspired
Photo Gear is one of those designs: an ultra
lightweight pouch which can be filled with
water or sand and used to weigh down
your tripod or lightstand. You can wrap
the WaterWeight round the legs of your
support or hang via the handle. They’re
also stackable, so you can add several
together when you need more weight.
What’s more, it folds down and packs away
into its own carry handle. Weighs only 139g
when empty and ten times more (1.3kg)
when filled with water. Simply inspired.
The number one cause of
poor pictures is camera
shake. Lenses with built-in
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, whilst
clamps and table-top
tripods are best suited to
indoor work.

Correction lenses
Super-sturdy with spiked foot
If you wear glasses, it can be
difficult to see all of the viewfinder
image clearly. A correction lens may
help. The lens slips over the existing
eyepiece lens so that you can view
the image without wearing your
glasses. Available in ten strengths
from +3 to –4. Can only correct eye
defects of long and short sight. Call
for more information or go online.
We offer a return service if you
wish to try several strengths.
A versatile
solution for
many shooting
this clever
functions as
both a minitripod and a
clamp. When
used as a
mini tripod it
stands around
24cm tall,
but can go as
low as 13cm
with the legs
folded flat. When used as a clamp, it can
grip surfaces up to around 6cm (2.5 inches)
This is a heavy-duty support
manufactured from aluminium and it
features an adjustable ball head and legs.
Soft rubber facings ensure surfaces will not
be scratched. It can be tripod-mounted via
a 1/4 inch screw socket and folds flat when
not in use. Weight 800g; folds to 28cm.

Delta Pro 160 tripod
WITH 3D Pan-and-tilt head
Sturdy and steady, this good-value tripod from Hama
features a highly manoeuvrable three-way pan-and-tilt head,
ideal for a range of photography subjects like landscape and
portraiture. An integrated spirit level and compass allow for
accurate positioning and alignment within your shooting
environment. The Delta Pro 160 possesses an easyto-use cork quick release plate, offering a sturdy
attachment point between tripod and camera.
This tripod packs down to 54.5cm and extends to
160cm. The three-section legs are locked in place with
quick-action clips, with a reassuring click sound so you
know they’re in place. A retractable, rotating central
column gives you the option to mount your EOS
camera close to the ground for macro work; when
mounted the right way up the column features a hook
underneath so you can hang a WaterWeight (above)
or similar sandbag accessory to weigh down your
set-up on uneven terrain or blustery conditions. Nonslip plastic feet add to the firm grip and all-weather
reliability. Supplied complete with carry bag.

comfort for either eye
HoodEYE is a replacement rubber camera
eyecup designed to improve viewfinder clarity.
In sunny conditions your view can be hampered
by varying levels of stray light entering the
viewfinder. HoodEYE allows your eye to fit much
closer to the camera for improved viewing. The
cup rotates to accommodate both left and right
eye shooting. The eyecup itself is made from
hypoallergenic silicone rubber. A self-locking
mount keeps the HoodEYE in place so you know
it’s exactly where you left it. And if you wear glasses, there are also models (G) designed
for you.
HoodEYE 22 / HoodEYE 22G for EOS 5D
Mk III, 7D, 1D/1Ds series
HoodEYE 18L / HoodEYE 18LG

Hot-shoe spirit level
If you shoot landscapes or buildings it is
important to get your camera absolutely
level. This small spirit level slips into your
camera’s hot-shoe and offers two levels
whether shooting in landscape or portrait
REF: R072
Fat Gecko monopod
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. Maximum
load 13.6kg.

We couldn’t believe
the sturdiness of this
monopod for the price
– and the fact that it
extends to 170cm.
This Camlink CMP2
monopod has four
sections which are
secured with quicklock clasps, features
a wrist strap which is
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

it’s pretty portable.
Convenient for lighter

Understanding composition
David Taylor is your guide through this tricky area. He looks at
the effect that equipment choice will have on your compositional
strategy, then delves in-depth into the key areas such as aspect
ratios, perspective, Rule of Thirds, Rule of Odds, visual weight
and contrast. Techniques of exposure, depth-of-field and white
balance are explained. The book concludes with a section on
post-processing including cropping and panoramic stitching.
