    Anyone have recommendations on good cheapish stereo lavs? Needing some to do off camera audio for interviews, but the vast majority of them are TRRS these days for phones, which plays havoc if you are using proper recording stuff, and makes it hard to do an L-R split for recording an interview.

    Need cheapish, as the people doing the interviews arent the easiest on gear, and as few adapters as possible to reduce the screwups (have a series of interviews done with Rode SmartLavs which were supposed to be plugged in via a TRRS>TRS adapter... they werent).

    Pro tip - focus on the eyes. ;)

    BTW, got me a 135mm lens that contains only 1.5 f-stops. ;)

    Lightroom Classic to Lightroom CC cagalog migration migrated exactly 0 of my 36,000 catalog, now it wont let me migrate it again, saying its already migrated, when it is not.

    Lightroom Classic wont sent the RAW files to the cloud storage.

    Adobe is no help, how do I reset it to try migrating again?
    "
    Error: Already migrated. You already moved this catalog to Lightroom CC.

    Solution: A given catalog (.lrcat file) can only be migrated to Lightroom CC once. You can, however, migrate other, additional catalogs.

    Clever concept. I don't like the idea of using one of these on a mirrored system.

    "Please use Live View mode while taking photo with clip filter for Canon FF , because you will have to lift the mirror to install the filter and the mirror will block the optical viewfinder(OVF)"

    You'd only need to accidentally turn off your camera - or have the battery run out - and down comes the mirror. Too much of an expensive risk.

    Edit: I've just read a review and apparently, the manufacturer is claiming that the filter will stop the mirror coming down accidentally and say that it's safe to turn off the camera power with one of these in place.

    The method for inserting these means that there's the risk of dropping a corner of it on your sensor.

    It's less risk to buy regular filters. Or you'll save a bit of money using gelatin files and cut them to fit the back of your lens; stick them on with gaffer tape. It's an old trick that works well, though not for all lenses. Some lenses even have a gel filter holder for that purpose. Like the Canon 11-24mm lens.

    Also CC is terrible. But its only the way to sync raw files. Tried importing a couple photos as a test, and it doesnt show jpeg+raw as one image, but as separate duplicate images... wtf

    Hey Anthril

    Try posting in the forums on Victoria Bampton's site, The Lightroom Queen. If there's an answer, you'll get it from one of the users or from Victoria.

    I managed to do it by removing the Lightroom CC folder out of AppData/Local

    It is clearly broken that Adobe still does not allow Lightroom Classic to backup/sync original files to the Cloud and only smart previews.

    Looks a nice bit of kit. I am thinking of acquiring a speedlight that plays with my other Godox gear, will probably be this one.
