Technical Support / Canon Selphy CP760 on Mavericks
« on: January 23, 2014, 03:00:56 PM »

My Canon Selphy CP760 printer worked fine until I jumped from Lion to Mavericks.  Canon's support says that a driver is not needed.  Mavericks tells me to get the driver form Canon.  I tried the Canon driver for Lion, but it will not install.

I searched the net to no avail.  Help?


EOS-M / EOS M with 600RT assist beam.
« on: July 11, 2013, 11:46:31 PM »
How do I get the M to fire the 600's AF assist lamp?  I turn the AF beam on/off that controls the M's beam and no go.  I set the CF to turn on the AF beam and no go.  I've even RTFM and no go.  Will the 600's AF beam fire for the M, cuz in low light it needs it. 

Great camera BTW.

Software & Accessories / Does DPP run in Mountain Lion?

Does DPP run (properly) in Mountain Lion?


EOS-M / EOS M case.
« on: November 12, 2012, 06:00:00 PM »

Is there a case for the EOS M?  Something that facilitates the camera as an everyday cary item.  A case that can clip on to your person would be ideal.  If you have a link to share, please paste it to this thread.  Thanks.

EOS-M / EOS M and TCs

Can the EOS M be used with a Canon TC via the lens adapter and a compatible EF lens? 

Software & Accessories / Arca-Swiss requires plate
« on: October 13, 2012, 04:27:43 PM »


In the description it reads requires plate.

Then it leaves me hanging.  Is this the quick release plate?  Where can I buy it?  What model for a 5d3?  Arca-Swiss seems to be well regarded, but their website suxs azz; it has limited information.

I want to pair this with a Gitzo CF tripod, yeah!

Thanks for  the replies.

I'm not sure where to posts this, but here goes, or if it had been posted already.  I could not find it on CR.

As the topic reads.

EOS Bodies / EOS-M and what countries get the flash included?
« on: July 27, 2012, 01:08:59 AM »
As the subject reads, can anyone clarify who gets what?  It seems the USA does not get the flash for $799 in the kit, and Canucks like me get the flash for $879 in the kit ($829.99 with 22/2), see the linkS below.



If Canada gets the flash in the kit for $879, it seems our neighbors to the south are getting hosed. 

EOS Bodies / What was the last Canon camera without video?
« on: July 10, 2012, 05:03:53 PM »
What was the last Canon camera without video capabilities right out of the box?  Was it the 50D?

EOS Bodies / 5D3 IQ FB, do I need a D800?
« on: May 07, 2012, 10:18:14 PM »
Hi, I just got a 5D3 and want to know if it will do for my profile pic on facebook, or should I jump to a Nikon D800?  Thanks, I gues I should have asked BEFORE I bought my 5D3, oh-well lol.

Third Party Manufacturers / Does anyone here use a c-loop?
« on: April 08, 2012, 01:34:14 AM »
Hi, does anyone here have any experience with this:



I like the idea of it, seems logical.  But will it hold a 2.54 kg (5.6 lb) lens by its tripod mount?


EOS Bodies / 5D3 and things that could be improved just a little.
« on: April 04, 2012, 02:59:05 PM »

This is a thread about things I’ve noticed about my new 5D3.  It’s not a rant or Canon blew this one kind of thread.  I love my 5D3, and I’ve had almost few weeks and a few thousand images with it.  There are just a few tiny little things I’d change.

First, I shot with my Canon EOS ef-m for years with its 35-80 kit lens, then moved up to AF with an EOS 5.  After that is was a jump to an EOS 50D in October 2008, then, as we know, the 5D3 in March 2012.  I even played with a Sinar 4x5 view camera in that time frame too.

Now, on to the 5D3:

 One thing I don’t like is where your right thumb would be when shooting. The ergonomic on the camera case is too high.  That bump below the af-on/ ae lock/ af point button, you know the one.  After an hour or so of holding the camera it wears on the skin.  I have not used the camera with big gloves on, maybe in the winter when it’s -20c the bump will prove to be useful.

 Let’s say your shooting, you stop for a minute and the camera goes to sleep.  Pressing the shutter to shoot again, I find the wake up time too long.  Maybe I just need to get used to the shutter button, it’s quite different than the 50D’s.

You shoot an image, and the image is still on the preview for the 2 seconds (or more if you’ve changed the setting), you hit zoom to look closer BEFORE the image preview time expires, now you turn the quick control dial to view the previous image, but the camera wont go to the previous image.  You have to “clear” the screen, hit the playback button, then you can browse all of your images zoomed or not.

As usual, the manual is written by someone who has never used the camera.

When you achieve focus and the focus point lights red, I can’t see it light up in bright conditions.  It needs to be brighter or something.

Maybe some this could be addressed with firmware updates, or the next 5D4 @$4500.
