What??? You have to have it ! It's better than an air compressor or cleaning gum. It's the ultimate tool for giving you dirt free pictures.

When in flash mode, select the flash white balance in the camera. It should turn out correct. The camera's auto white balance may be slight off. If that's the case, select the white balance accordingly in incandescent or flourescent lighting. Some digital cameras have the ability to manually "'capture" the required white balance. Use a white card under the lighting you want to take the pic and you can make the camera take a "sample" of the white balance off the white card. Your pictures should look correct after that.

This is very nice for white balance, I am using it with my 10D and it works beautiful

Hi,

This is hard for me to say since I'm a big fan of Serpent, but it looks like they didn't make their homework

How come that they are the only one with this problem?

I think it is very reasonable of what you said concernig that this kind of problem exist before if I'm not mistaken. Anyhow, I wish them best of luck with whatever they can pull out from anything that is available on their hands.

Yes, and I'm dying to see that "upload" you're doing tonight to see the speed with which they take them!

I heard this top group are really ballistic and this coming from a source that does not exagerate.

Choco, according to one post at SGrid, a suggestion for certain "arrangments" need to be made or pay up an enormous of tax on them!

I think you have the answer right there. If you are asking this question (btw its 2000 pairs) then I can imagine what the customs folks are thinking too.
