    I think locusts. Moths don't crunch under your wheels.

    Thought I'd share a little soccer world cup flavour.

    Canadian soldiers are what we call these bigger ones, every year early spring or so we get smaller ones we call sand flies. But the last few years these been coming in. Here's link, they sure are some ugly things. And they show up right out of the blue, was outside last night no signs of them wake up this morning and place is covered.

    2 quick questions :)

    - that camera attachment/cap which you buy and attach to the lens so that the sun's rays don't refract and show up rainbow colours in the sky - what is it called in English? (English's not my native language so I don't know proper terminological jargon...) :eek:

    - would such cap be fitting universally on all lenses or would I need to purchase one specifically to fit on my Olympus E-330?

    Polarizing filter I beleive is what you're looking for, and they come in various sizes (diameters) so I think you will need one with the same diameter as the thread at the end of your lens.

    I think she is actually referring to a Lens Hood.

    Yes it's a lens hood (I googled the picture and that's it)

    They're according to sizes.

    My lens is a zuiko 14-45mm so I guess that means I have to buy a 45mm lens hood for it to fit?

    Thanks.

    No, the "14-45" refers to the focal length. You should measure the diameter of the lens(I think) and that will be the size you are looking for.

    EDIT: Lens hood is specific to each lens, take a look at this:http://www.lenshoods.co.uk/

    A Cannon 450D and Adobe Camera Raw are like having your own personal photo lab :)

    LOL. One way of looking at it. In my case it's a Nikon D5000 and Nikon ViewNX.

    Ya man, my brother just bought one of those a few weeks ago and is loving it. He had been using Adobe cs3 and his .NEF had to be converted. Once he got to play with cs5(and didn't have to convert anything), he was grabbin for the credit card. :rolleyes:
