The Canon LC-E4N battery charger that comes as standard equipment with the 1D-X is rather large and difficult to pack for long trips. Has anyone found a smaller alternative that works safely with LP-E4N batteries?
When you remove the battery the first thing the camera does after detecting that the battery door is open is to shut itself down properly.
I purchased a 6D from Canon Refurbished and actution was 17 using a Apple Mac app called "Shutter Count" so I was pretty excited thinking my body was new. But later I realized my files started at _MG_9025.CR2. So now I'm annoyed.
I tried several lens/camera/exposure combinations this morning and found only my most expensive 24-105 Canon L lens produced this problem and only when I have (relatively) bright light in the subject.
what's wrong with 18-55 IS?
I'm on the road pretty much every week and carry just one charger to cover everything except my laptop. I've been using the Gomadic system for years. Once you have the charger, all you need is the modular tips for the specific device. I current use this quad unit which includes international adapters:
You can buy direct or from Amazon.
So you're in a hotel room and have a dozen devices to plug in, each of which will occupy an entire outlet. What do you do, particularly when you have to pack whatever you intend to use? Assume please standard North American sockets.
