Lighting / Re: 6D + 580EXII serious TTL metering problem?
« on: October 07, 2014, 09:14:36 AM »
I have the same problem with my 5D3 & 580 1&2, It just underexposes with the flash attached quite a lot, and other times its perfect, but I have got used to it and can now adjust a bit for it when I think its going to happen e.g back lit subjects always under expose, which I understand why this happens it didn't do this with my other 5Dc & 5D2, they seemed to read the situation better and illuminate the subject correctly with whatever flashgun I had on it. Im not actually sure if its the way the mark 3 meters with the flashgun or if my setup is malfunctioning? but its not that bad to make me go to the trouble of sending it away to get checked yet. :)

Lenses / Re: 24-105 &/or 24-70

I have both, but I shoot Weddings & Portraits for a living and sometimes have a 2nd shooter who would use the 24-105 on my 5D2 & I use the 24-70 on my 5D3, I also have a 28-135 just in case. One thing I have learnt about shooting Weddings is to always have a backup, as I have had 2 lens's fail at the one Wedding before.

How do you find your 1Dx in low light with a flashgun attached neuro?

I have been considering trading one of my 5D mark 2's for a Mark 3 lately, but im definitely not going to pull the trigger on it for a while after reading all these problems, as I use my 580 flash extensively at my Weddings and I foresee this really annoying me. I wonder if 1Dx owners are experiencing this problem as well?

Take your 24-105 & either the 50 or 85. I would probably take the 85 for some candid portraits of the locals with some nice bokeh! :)

I wonder if Canon has included the continuos video recording ability that the 5d3 & 1dx has, that lets you record video for just under 30mins splitting the video into 4gb files??. Im assuming they Havant, but thought I would mention it just in case.

Lenses / Re: 24-70 f/2.8L mk 1 or 24-105 f/4L
« on: May 28, 2012, 06:51:28 PM »
I use the 24-105 as my lens of choice for 90% of all my Wedding and Portrait work,  although I do use my 70-200 f2.8 and an occasional shot with my 17-40 & 85mm, the 24-105 covers nearly every scenario that I need, I'm actually thinking of getting another one as I wouldn't want to be without it for even one Wedding if it broke! I have thought about the 24-70 mk1 as well, but I think I would miss that extra bit of reach that the 105 gives. I find it a very versatile lens. :) Hope this helps.

EOS Bodies / Re: Locking Mode Dial.

Got the mode dial upgrade done to both my 5D2's, its really worth it, as I was constantly knocking it to the wrong setting by accident at Weddings. :)

EOS Bodies / Microfocus adjusting my 17-40?
« on: December 16, 2011, 11:14:43 AM »
Hi Everyone, was hoping to get some advice about Microfocus adjusting my 17-40 on my 5Dmk2. It is tack sharp on my 5D mark 1 but on both my 5dmk2 bodies it isnt. I have read that microadjustment works well on a prime lens, but havnt herd if anyone has sucsesfuly adjusted a zoom?

What about a Lens with a new or slightly expanded focal length, like say a 20-70mm 2.8IS or a 24-90mm 2.8IS. The 20-70 focal lenth might not be possable though? dont know the technical  in's and outs of developing such a lens??

Canon EF Zoom Lenses / Re: Canon EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM

I noticed the same softness with the 24-105 that I just bought and ultimately I decided to return it and only use prime lens for now until a new zoom update comes out maybe like the 24-70 2.8 II (hopefully with IS)!

I shoot Weddings with my 24-105 on my 5D mark 2 and find the lens focusing very inconsistent. Images taken in a sequene with the same subject, composition and focusing point, some are sharp and some arn't. Generally by saying sharp I mean usable, I wouldn't say this is a sharp lens. For a while I just thought I hadn't got a great copy, bu :(t when a fiend of mine also got a 5D and 24-105 he has had the exact same problems, both of our lens's seam to experiance more softness at the long end. Was thinking of trading up for a 24-70 with the hope it would be better? Is there anymore of you guys with a similar experiance with this lens? as it has been for me unfortunately a bit disapointing.

I noticed that the 1Ds is currently out of stock with Park Cameras and  Calumet uk. Hope that means the mark 4 will soon be here, or maybe it just means nobody wants the mark 3 anymore???
