Canon General / 70D or 70-300L
« on: September 10, 2013, 08:09:20 AM »
Hi All, I have the venerable 40D. My longest lens is a 200 2.8L version 1. I sometimes shoot planes from a distance and often wish for more focal length and end up cropping fairly heavily. I've been considering the 70-300L for some time in order to get "closer" to my target. But now I'm thinking that the 70D with twice the megapixel count might allow me top crop more and therefore give me better IQ.

Which would be the better option:

70D with twice as many pix on target,


70-300L with greater focal length

Opinions? GO...

Thanks to all who have responded!!

Finder preferences are set to show everything.

I am unable to reformat, erase, partition or anything else in Disk Utility. Everything is greyed out.

When I connect the 40D to my Air, iPhoto pops up and I am only able to download into iPhoto. This kinda defeats the purpose of having USB 3.0. Plus, my prefered workflow uses bridge and photoshop, not iPhoto.

At least I am encouraged that others are NOT having this issue. That means that it should work and therefore there should be a fix.

My next move is to make a Genius Bar appointment and see if they can help.

I have several cards and 2 card readers that are having the same issue. The cards reformat just fine in the camera. Some cards have images on them and others are empty. None of the cards can be reformated with my MacBook Air. The cards do NOT show up in finder. They do show up in disk utilities, but nothing I can't do anything with them there.

I have been using these cards without issue for years, but not with this new Mac.

I'm still stumped...

Technical Support / Compact Flash Card not recognized in Mac

Help! My Mid 2012 Macbook Air (10.8.4) doesn't recognize the Compact Flash cards from my venerable 40D. I've been using these same SanDisk Extreme III cards with a firewire card reader on my dearly departed 2008 MacBook Pro for ages. I've tried two separate USB 3.0 card readers on the MBA with the same results... uh, no results.

Has anyone else had this issue? Any suggestions?
