Light leak Canon TS-E lenses?
« on: September 11, 2016, 03:06:22 AM »



Have you experience any light leak with Canon TS-E lenses, especially TS-E 24L II, during long time exposure when tilted or shifted? Do you cover the lens and camera during long exposures with ND filter in day time shooting?

Hi,

I have not noticed any lightleaks with those lenses (I use the TS-E 24 mm II, 45 mm and 90 mm). I do close the viewfinder with longer exposures or strong light falling on the camera back. Professional camera bodies (often) have a viewfinder shutter, others can be blocked with a separate stop.

NDs with screw filtermounts produce no issues, but the Lee types (e.g. Big Stopper) need/have a good casket to avoid light creeping in from the (back)sides.

Cheers,
Bart

Hi,

That's good to hear. I will go for a screw in 10-stop filter.
