If what you saw was crawling around then it was likely a "Mealybug Destroyer" which is a Lacewing larvae. See attached images & see if this is what you saw...

 Or, maybe it was a Lacewing Larvae. They carry the discarded carcasses of their prey on their backs. Attached I have images of the larva with & without the carcasses...If they eat mealybugs, those carcasses will be white...

Does the print quality of that ip 100 come close to the Pro 9000?

A pest of the American Plum tree. I found these on one of my Plum trees, inside of a curled up leaf. Note the "wool" at the back end of the aphid. Hard to get a decent pic of them.

Never heard of it & doubt that it would be any good

Have any of you tried those scratch guards for your filters?  Another photographer was telling me about them yesterday and I didn't find anything on Google.  She said she had a film on the front of her filters.  

I asked here, if that robs from the optics because of the adhesive used.  She stated that it didn't.  Personally I don't see how this could be so.  

Have you heard of such a filter protector?

Have to agree with Tony's assessment here. It's all about money  & copyright issues.Tony Imaging wrote:

Yeah, that's pretty much it.  These organizations want to be able to make the big bucks from the papers and magazines.  Can't do that when thousands of guest have same photos.  It's a chain reaction, when buyers have the same photos, they don't buy magazines that otherwise they might have bought.   Which means the big spenders won't be spending there either.
