Tiffen "Hot Mirror" filters ...

Does anyone have any experience with the Tiffen "Hot Mirror" filters on a digital camera? They are supposed to remove a significant amount of the infrared component of the light reaching the CCD, which, due to its extended sensitivity to infrared, can influence the color accuracy of a digital image.

Re: Tiffen "Hot Mirror" filters ...

The Tiffen hot mirror works fine on my D500. On some cameras it's not needed as the lens system already has some amount of IR filtering. When IR is present it causes some tinting of sky towards purple. The filter works as a mirror by reflecting the 800 - 1100 nanometer wavelengths. This is the range that causes the problem. I wouldn't just buy one without determining if the camera really needs it. Mine may not need it in most cases but many of my pictures come from the Arctic and there's no way to do some over again. I had a real problem with a previous Casio so I didn't want to take any chances.

Camera won't turn on


gently lift the mirror and check the shutter blades. Shutter failures are common on these. Also check the door switches. There is a switch with a small flipper that is closed when the battery door is fastend to the camera, and the same for the SD card door. If either of these switches is damaged the camera will not power up

Canon 40d will not take pictures


1) CF card in camera? Won't shoot without one

2) Does mirror go up?

3) Canon had a run of bad motors for this model - if mirror does not go up, then it is the mirror motor. If mirror goes up, shutter will not fire, press release again then the mirror goes down, the shutter motor is bad (same model motor). If mirror goes up, shutter fires, both blades travel together/no exposure, probably the shutter is bad.

You are heading into dangerous territory. You have an expensive camera. The mirror CANNOT BE TOUCHED! I cannot stress that enough. You do not have the expertise or the tools necessary for the repair. You must have an authorized Leica repair facility do this work.

Canon EOS XS Mirror Replacement


This is not a repair that you can do. You do not have the proper tools or alignment equipment, not to mention the technical experience.

Canon 300 EOS images not complete


There is a plastic pin pivot inside the box mirror (right side of it if you see the front of the camera), which allows the sub-mirror to move in one direcction, basically, during the capture process of the image by the CMOS sensor.

The dark or black areas mean that such plastic pivot is either broken or missing (pushed in).

The plastic pin pivot is really very cheap ($3.00), but the problem is that in order to replace it and fix the camera, it is necessary to almost disassemby the camera and box mirror, which maycost between $120.00 - $200.00, depending where you will send your camera for such procedure.

In internet you can Google for some guidelines in how you can repair it yourself, using a standard metal paper clip (forming it with pliers and glueing it to the mirror box) if you think that you can do it yourself.

If your camera has ay kind of warranty, you can return it to make it valid.

Also, if you search in internet, you will find some persons that claim that their cameras out of warranty were fixed FREE of charge (only the paid the shipping) after talk with Canon about the problem.

Bottom line, this repair is time consuming, and needs some degree of skills and experience to open and disassembly the camera, and repair it.

You need to evaluate if you want to spend money on it, or do it yourself.

Tiffen 2X teleconvertor telephoto lens


I was testing the new Kenko 2x teleconverter I just got. Seems to work, but only at full zoom. But I left the epson supplied adapter ring on when I turned the camera off, and it interferred with the lens cover, and jammed it. It's a 4 leaf shutter assembly, and mine is screwed up so it won't open or close. Needless to say I'm kind of unhappy. I've heard Epson service is good, guess I'm about to find out. If you use the adapter, take it off when you turn the camera on or off!

Failure of flash sync in F828?


I experience similar failure sometimes. I un-mount the flash (or adapter) from the hot shoe and put it back, and am back in business. The reason is, at least in my case. loose contact, resulting from movement of the flash/adapter in the shoe.

Lens Protection Size!!!


Get a CLA-1 lens tube. It screws into the camera body. The other end accepts 43mm accessories. Put on a 43-49mm step-up ring. Into that screw a 49mm UV filter. (The step-up ring is needed to separate the filter from the extended lens.) Leave the UV filter on at all times. Throw away the lens cap.

Macro converter


I had good results with my Oly 2020 and a set of Tiffen close-up lenses (+7 and +10); they are 37mm, so won't work with the 2100, but you can find something similar in 49mm and larger size.
