Site Information / is there a news feed without the advertising?
« on: November 30, 2013, 02:42:56 AM »
In the early days it was all about rumors, new releases and firmware updates.

Today i have the feeling its all about prices of canon gear (lenses, bodys, memorycards etc.). I am not only talking about that BlackFriday stuff (which i of course dont care at all too). Its going on for a while now.

I really dont care for how much this stuff sells where you live, i probably wouldnt even care if i lived on the same continent.

So is there a rss feed version without those advertisements?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D III turning off an not reacting anymore

Did anyone of you notice the M3 crashing and not reacting anymore? I often have it that i want to view the just taken photo but the screen turns off in an instant (im not pressing any buttons, not even the aperture preview). Once i coul'nt get into the menu, had to turn the camera off and on again for it to work.

Is that a bug? If i put my emtpy microSD adapter into the SD slot the camera takes about 5 seconds until i can start using the shutter release button.

Try it for your self. It has real-life impact on your photos if you use the cable remote control, because then the rubber cover is also lifted from the mic-input. Light falls directly on the sensor.

Just read the manual of the 5D III, 1/250 as fastest time for auto iso is bloody stupid. Still usless for sport and action. Might be of use for weddings but that its. Why are they doing this to us?


Stop arguing whether you need it or don't, no one cares, there are a lot of people who find it useful, if you don't you don't have to use it.

Fact is there are fast moving situations you want to shoot that might change from sunlight to shadow. And if you change ISO values you loose important moments. Sure you can just shoot everything with 6400 or higher to be on the save side. But its just damn convenient to have the camera user lower ISOs and faster times wich results in better quality if the light allows it.

And why not be angry about this feature? For me this would have been the main reason to upgrade from II to III. Because i shoot under those conditions a lot. And i thought they finally did it, then i read the manual and found that ridiculous limit for the shutter speed. As they said the II has Auto ISO i thought i can use it, and now 2 camera generations (7D was in between) later they still haven't figured it out

Using TV doesn't help either because you cant shoot everything with 2.8

And M, makes no sense at all Sure you could set your limit time, but in AV you could get faster if the light allows it. And in M, the camera has to use higher ISOs because 1/800 F4 just doesn't work in bright sunlight with ISO 200, and its not allowed to use faster times in M. So no gain in picture quality there.

Fact the camera is rubbish and useless in my opinion as a MII owner. And yes other people might like, want different features. Thats called freedom of thought.

If you also think this is rubbish, fill out a Canon online contact form and tell them, maybe they will do something about, they activated the F8 autofocus for the 1DX didnt they? Maybe there is still hope.
