Lenses / Re: how to get 300 2.8
« on: September 18, 2014, 02:09:27 PM »
I have used the 2xmkiii with the v1 . I am trying to learn BIF so this is not a good example probably, but its all I have available on this computer. Remember in some else's hands I think it would be much better. But maybe it will help.

I bought a used vI and it is great on the 5DmkIII, but it even brought new life to the 40D. My favorite before it was the 200 2.8 II , Still is my go to for the kids playing outside .The 300 is sweet just is not as grab and go. My intent was also for soccer just have not had the  time.

300 on 40D

+1 on the timer, also did a factory reset on the 5DmkIII to play with magic lantern. Before I had put my settings back in a storm came though and I got some amazing lighting shots ( I thought). Went to download and 200 shots took less than a minute ? Yep, 5DmkIII defaults to jpeg not raw, some nice pictures but they would have been GREAT photographs.

Anyways, the piezo sensor I rigged up (canabalized an old buzzer and stole the piezo element) has by far worked the best and most consistently for me.

+1 on the piezo sensor, have to turn the radio off when using it.

I use the Camera Axe, its open source, so you can build your own if your handy with electronics and soldering. Lots of different ways to trigger , sound , lazer, light, etc.

I have noticed the live view focus is a lot slower in low light, so my guess is it couldn't get focus. You could try "quick focus" in live view, manual pg 207, and see if that helps. But I would use manual focus at night.

I used mine on a 5DmkIII yesterday in live view with no problems. Some things to check like focus priority, mirror lockup,I do use back button focus. I assume since you said night shots you were in manual focus single shot ? I have never had a problem with mine that I couldn't trace back to me.  ;D

I really didn't do this one justice, but thought every one here would enjoy it. Looked like a rain out so I wasn't expecting anything and of course the best things happen when least prepared. By the time I retrieved the camera it was fading fast, so just a few quick shots . This is probably 1/3 the intensity that it started at, I am not very good at color adjustment the red was actually much deeper than it came out.

Thanks Click and Candyman. This one was almost cheating, if the storms hold off you knew it would happen. Just a matter of not blowing it, which I am more than capable of doing. ::)

EOS Bodies / Re: SL1 as a "travel" body
« on: August 13, 2014, 01:45:02 PM »
I always thought the SL-1 looked interesting for use on a telescope with its low weight. How is the iso performance ? I use the 5DmIII for wide field but still use the 40D when I need to get closer ( and lighter), and it stinks above iso 800.

try updating it thru the EOS utility. That way you can bypass the card.
