    Help: can't remove SE535 tips!

    I've had my SE535s for nearly three years now, and due to my own stupidity I've never cleaned the black olives I have on them. They've now got a substantial earwax buildup on the outside that I really need to clean off (and I'd like to clean the filter inside too).   The problem is I can't...

    New Aluminum Mac Mini as Music Source

    -I'd rip to ALAC. Prettty neat in iTunes. -If you're going to be running iTunes and maybe one/two other apps, no need to upgrade the ram. However, I'd go with 4gb to future proof it. Buy ram from other sources to save a lot of cash - apple have a great markup on it. Crucial are a good place...

    Looking for a camera case that can latch on to my Messenger Bag sling.

    I'd go for a think tank product like this. They should mount up on your bag, even if it's only with the webbing on the top of the pouch. Think tank bags are the best make you can get, and they're a bit pricey but incredibly well made (they were founded by pro photogs) and have loads of great...

    Manual Focusing.

    Not a problem! The 17mm pancake would be a great choice, as it's very well priced and the effective focal length of around 35mm is what some of the best street photographers have shot all their work on-it's a great all purpose lens.  I'd also mention to avoid the canon fd primes-they are not...

    Camera Bag-Fi

    My setup:     Tamrac Expedition 8X. Hauls 2 DX Nikons, 400 2.8, 3 more lenses, flashes, socks, manuals, 2 tripods, kitchen sink  I've worn it at 15kg for 5km, and it's still comfy...lovely harness. And when the big 400 is at home, the Lowepro MiniTrekker gets it done just as comfortably.

    Canon 50mm f/1.2 L, talk me out of it.

    f1.2 isn't that much faster than f1.4. The difference is not that much, especially on a 50mm. Even with the crop factor. Just sayin'. And if you get a used Canon 50 f1.4 you can buy a whole lotta more gear to make up all the money you would have spent on the heavy (but pretty) f1.2L.

    Manual Focusing.

    Manual focus at f1.8 is hard, but not impossible. At f2.8 it shouldn't be a problem, and at f2 it should be possible with some practice. Remember that the 50mm will become a 100 f1.8 on your camera, which will be even harder to manually focus..... Also, the focus ring on the Canon f1.8 is...
