EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D - Weird black pictures problem
« on: July 20, 2014, 01:29:55 PM »
Thanks for your answers. :)
I'm using a Sandisk 16GB UDMA 60MB/s 400x card.
I don't think it's a buffer problem, because the gig was very slow and i had fired picture by picture and not continuous shooting.

I'm agree with you for the shutter problem and for the half black images.
And if someone had blocked the light, my file would have been more like my second sample and not the weird first one. (i think so)

What i find weird on those files, it's if i put the brightness at max, i don't have any details at all, and really not much noise.

I checked my shutter count with ML and i only have 39K.
I tried to shoot yesterday but i couldn't reproduce the issue.
I will maybe shoot a small gig tonight, so i may have the problem again.

I was telling me is it my fault? no way, this is not a shot with the cap on. i take off the cap when i go in the pit and put it back only when i leave it.

To be sure, even if i'm really sure of me, i fired with the cap on and edited the picture  with camera raw.

a.jpg (first one) is my weird black picture with +5 exposure on camera raw
b2.jpg (second one) is the picture with the cap on the camera (no lens), also with +5 exposure on camera raw

You can see that this is really not the same kind of pictures.

Hi,
the picture just before the black one has almost the same settings:
good one: iso 400  F/4,5  1/400s  200mm
black one: iso 320  F/4,5  1/400s  200mm
And the one you can see on this page, is just 20sec after the black one, with the exact same light conditions: iso 320  F/4,5  1/400s  200mm

I have sometimes some almost black picture, because of a fast change of light on the stage, but if i push it on lightroom, i can see the picture, with a lot of noise of course. But here, if i push the raw, i only have something almost white, but without any details of anything and not much noise.

Thanks guys.
Hi NHK.
I think you are supposed to be able to get shutter count from Magic Lantern.
Cheers Graham
I will put back magic lantern and check my shutter count, good idea.

You can easily check for shutter failure, fire off several shots at 1/8000 sec shutter speed.  Thats where it becomes apparent.
If you are using a flash (you did not say)  its possible, but not likely to be totally black.
I did not used a flash (it's in my second post, but i have edited the first one to be clearer in my description)
I will try to take pictures like you said and see if i have the same or other problems with high speed.

i'll keep you posted, thanks.

EDIT: i just fire off several shots at 1/8000 like you told me, and no problem, everything is fine.

Hi, thanks for your answers.

No flash.
Here is a picture from the same series with the same lights, just 20sec after the black one.
(Singer: GARLAND JEFFREYS)

I hope it's not a shutter failure... i tried to use the old EOSInfo software to read my shutter count, but its not working anymore, i only have "no camera connected". (you have another software?)
The problem is really new, this happened for the first time 3 days ago.
And it's only pics like the one from the link, always the same type of black, and almost the same histogram, (not exactly the same).

hi guys, i'm having a weird issue with my 7D.
I was covering a festival those last 3 days, and i have some really weird "black pictures" (no flash used) , almost like if i was shooting with the cap.
On 3 days and 33 gigs i only have 5 pics like this, but i never had this before.
Anyone have an idea? or already had this problem?

I uploaded the raw file here:

A lot of great photographs here.
I especially like the Bluesman by "Standard", Wow! The Cuba shots by "yoni_blau" and her umbrella by "Eneade" . (je suis aussi de la région, j'ai reconnu directe^^)

Hi, i have a little question for you guys.
As a foreign customer, when you buy gear (lens, bag...) in the NY shop (not online) is it possible to avoid international taxes and/or the New York VAT?

Thanks.

I don't know about international taxes....but as far as I know...no US city or state currently has a VAT.

There are state and local taxes, but at least at this point, when you buy online, US companies do not collect any taxes if the sale it to an address outside of that state, if said company does not have a presence in your state.

Internationally.....they won't collect it either, but I think I've heard, that if it is going to anywhere in the EU, for instance...that the authorities on that end charge the end user there for it somehow, before you receive it..? I'm guessing they're checking all international packages coming in at the border over there...?

Sorry to speak of that in this thread, this will be my last answer about taxes.
My bad for the VAT, i wanted to say taxes.
Thanks for your answer. :)
