EOS Bodies / Re: Next Rebel Going EVF? [CR1]
« on: Today at 12:58:52 PM »
+1 for focus peaking! But please don't make us wait for EVF to have it!

Ugh? This was one of the very first features Magic Lantern had (for live view), it's available on most cameras, and it's free. The only thing it cannot manage is peaking in the viewfinder, you simply do need an evf for that.

Yes but ML kills batteries. Be nice to not have to use ML.
No. It. Doesn't.

Have you considered using an Eg-S focusing screen?

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 80D????
« on: Today at 11:48:04 AM »
I've no idea what lens(es) you're using, but if you're that concerned about Canon's sensors, look into buying into another system?

I only own a 50mm f/1.4, a 70-300 and the 18-55 kit lens, all from canon. I know most photographers here would consider that as a very small investment, thus not blocking me to take the jump to another brand. The thing is, my old 300d has been such a good camera that I almost feel that I owe it to canon to stay in their system  ;D .

Seriously, if the 70d is half as good as the 300d was in terms of quality, I can only hope to be a very happy customer... are the sony/panasonic/fuji/nikons as good? I don't know... has canon gone downhill in since the first rebels? maybe...

anyways, what are the chances that the 80d will be 24-ish MP ? I think it could be possible with all the market pressure from nikon and sony...
My guess, and that's all it is, the 80D will likely use the same - or an incremental improvement of the same - sensor that's in the 70D.

I'm interested as well.
Because I still shoot in my 6MP 300D, which is 10 years old, I can only hope that my next camera will be at least have 2 times greater linear resolution (6000 x 4000 = 24MP)

I've been tempted by the 70d but people complaining about the sensor and AF issues have cooled me down... maybe waiting for another year or year and a half is worth it...?
Seriously, any camera you buy now will be far in advance of the 300D, much better sensor, much better AF, much better everything (though possibly not longevity - well done for keeping the 300 going!!).  You can spend too much time reading forums and end up believing that Canon's sensors are useless. They're not. I've no idea what lens(es) you're using, but if you're that concerned about Canon's sensors, look into buying into another system?

I cracked the red autofocus panel on the front of my 600EX-RT and got the replacement part from Canon, but how do I go about getting the old panel off the light? I've tried everything but can't seem to get it to detach.
Cracked? Can you carefully work something (knife blade, screwdriver tip) into the crack and then slowly expand the crack until the panel breaks in two?

Ireland? You're going to need to carry waterproofs, a change of socks, etc. as well as water, food, your camera, tripod, filters, possibly an additional lens or two, spare battery (-ies), maybe spare memory cards... do you really think you'll enjoy lugging an extra body around as well?

Photography Technique / Re: Light Leak with 1Dx / Lee Filters
« on: September 30, 2014, 04:56:20 PM »
Shot with Lee's Big Stopper?  If so, are there any creases, etc. on the gasket that's on the filter?

*Edit* A long exposure shot with the lens cap on would let you know if the body was to blame, if you covered the eyepiece.

Therapeutic reasons, I'm an obsessive-compulsive moaner, and picking fault with Canon is so easy (thanks to the handy hints I get from this forum!) and much more socially acceptable than doing so with your friends.  I don't actually take any photos, but whinging about the lack of a match for Nikon's 14-24, or the antiquated dust-sucking 100-400, instead of my friends behaviour (or dress, their wife, their girlfriend, or both or...), has saved me from a few black eyes.  You have to be careful, though.  When I started going on about Canon's sensor and shadow noise, I quickly picked up the nickname "Dynamic Range" - which was great, I'd never been called "dynamic" before!  8) Anyway, I must have overdone it, I went from being "Dynamic Range" to "Out of Range", nobody wanted to listen to me, so I've had to stop moaning about that and find something else.  Canon haven't failed me in that respect - I have been having a good whinge about the lack of video capabilities in Canon's DSLRs,so much so that I've managed to lose that horrible "Out of Range" tag for the much nicer "4-Ker"...

United Kingdom & Ireland / Re: Hello...Anyone else from the UK?

Hello from Wakefield, Yorkshire.

Why not post this on the Magic Lantern forum?

Glad you've got it sorted!

Graham, I have no experience with the tools you use, I avoid crApple like the plague, but you need to allow for the fact that the satellites from which you are getting the co-ordinates are reporting the time in UTC, ie equivalent to GMT.  As you're in the UK, you need to either remove 1 hour from the time recorded by the camera to allow for BST, or make allowance for that hour somewhere in an option in the software.



Okay, you've a pc, you've got your GPX tracks. The above link is is a tutorial on how to tag photos using GPicSync. You might get enough from it to work out where you're going wrong with Geo Setter, or decide to use GPicSync, it's freeware.

Samyang 14mm 2.8?
Sigma 14mm 2.8?
Zeiss 15mm 2.8?
Ultra wide zooms   ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: POLL: What's more important, gps or wifi?
« on: September 19, 2014, 08:49:52 AM »
I don't need either, but both would have uses, if well implemented, in body.

As it is, I do geotag photos if I've been out hiking, which is when I do most of my photography, but I use my Android tablet to generate a GPX track, which I apply to the photos as my first stage of post processing.

If I did need to use wi-fi, there are better ways of doing it than Canon's implementation (DSLR Controller and a cheap wireless router).

So, if well implemented in body, I'd use them. If not, there are good work-arounds available which mean I am NOT going to be wasting money on one of Canon's excessively expensive toys to gain the functionality.
