    Question Help!

    I have a Canon 50D and the 100 to 400 slider lens seems to be stuck on the camera ! Any suggestions? To make matters worse, this is a lens borrowed from a friend!:mad2:

    If the lens seated normally with out having a stiff spot at the end, it should come off after the release is fully depressed.

    Now if it when on hard or was forced on, the lens and/or camera may need repair if you are not lucky.

    Fully depress the lens release and twist, most likely that lens is not full compatible with the 50D and something has fiscally caused the bind between the camera and lens.

    The lens came off a 50D so I know that wasnt the problem.......the glue under the plastic cover had softened and shifted ( I was shooting on a track with 126 degree temps) so it had become "stuck" in the wrong spot...the lens is finally off, perfectly fine, as is the camera thank god, but the plastic will need to be replaced. Here is the pic (taken with a friends cell, sorry)

    Yes using photo lamps you do need to understand they do generate allot of heat and also pull allot of power either the electrical load or heat from the lamps: can damage equipment, set objects on fire, and other bad things.

    To prevent the bad things you need the properly rated power cord, correctly rated light fixtures, and the correct spacing from the lamps of combustible materials or equipment which heat may damage.

    Im not sure what you mean. I was shooting outside, track temps about 126! Apparently thats what did it! Thankfully lens and camera still work and are not broken, except for that plastic cover!
