- The possibility to use the LED at the front of the camera grip as a Focus Assist LED

What LED are you talking about?  I suspect you're thinking of the IR receiver 'window' for remote triggering...

The LED/light that blinks when using 2 sec or 10 sec delay...

What would you like to see in a future firmware update as an global add-on? I'm not talking ML here!!

I would like to see:
- An intervalometer
- The possibility to use the LED at the front of the camera grip as a Focus Assist LED

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Post your 'Noise by Ten' results

It only took 5 minutes total as you can see at the time/date... :) It does show the sweetspot and the weakspot of your camera.

Don't worry, my camera won't miss a thing this time of the year. I was just curious what the results were from other setups that you guys and girls have :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Post your 'Noise by Ten' results
« on: September 12, 2014, 07:28:20 AM »
Yesterday I was al little bit bored and try the 'Noise by Ten' test.

- Set your body on a tri-pod and select manual mode
- Cover eyecup with piece from neckstrap
- Put on your lenscap
- Set your lens at manual focus
- Aperture f/10
- ShutterSpeed 10 seconds
- ShutterDelay 10 seconds
- Put your setup in the darkest place possible
- Run all ISO modes

Body: Canon 5D Mark III
Lens: Canon 50/1.4


As you can see are ISO160 and ISO320 cleaner then ISO100. Even ISO640 is cleaner then ISO400
More noise is a bigger file and numbers don't lie. ;)

What are your results?

Nvidia Optimus, as it comes, does switch automatically, but one can go into Nvidia control panel and select to use the Nvidia card for each particular program. 
I have tried this with Photoshop in past, and unless one is doing 3D rendering, Nvidia card does not speed things up for usual 2D photo editing.  Using the Nvidia card does make the laptop run hotter, resulting in the fan kicking in faster and louder  :'(

Yes and No, there are some misunderstandings about Optimus. The application or game is recognized by the nvidia software/profiles, and switch to the recommended GPU, but it stays on that GPU until you exit your application.

For example: You start up your computer and the Windows GUI is always using your onboard (intel) GPU! When you decided to start an application or game, and that's were it wil switch to the recommende/preferred GPU when the program is recognized (profiles). When you exit the application or game optimus switch automatically (there you have it!) back to your onboard GPU. Try to run WEI (Windows Experiance Index) it would allways run on your onboard GPU.

Photoshop CS6 and CC does benefit from the much stronger nvidia GPU against the onboard intel. True you won't notice it when painting or fill a color, but more and more actions or plugin's use complex maths (OpenGL/OpenCL/Cuda) and that is were the nvidia GPU really shines!

I hope this clears it up for you... It does not change dynamically/automatically between your onboard or dedicated GPU while in your application or game.

I would not get a high end gaming laptop for photo editing, since a lot of your money will go towards a nice video card for gaming, which is not all that relevant for photo editing.  My laptop has the Intel video card AND an Nvidia card, and even using Photoshop 6 with 36 GB RAW files, the graphic card doesn't even kick in (Nvidia Optimus function).

Optimus doesn't change/switch automatically between your onboard and nvidia gpu. You have to manually set an dedicated GPU for each application (e.g. Photoshop) in nvidia control panel.

Not all programs works flawless with the 'auto select' feature. So your quote above doesn't make any sense. Select manually your nvidia GPU and you will see that things do speed up.

See attachment: It's an calibrated (by SpyderCheckr from DataColor) ACR preset for the 5D3.

Maybe this will give you a good start to work from?

You're in luck there, the 6d af isn't the latest & greatest, basically it's a years old 40d design...

What is this about, "Basically a 40D design?" What are you, a standup comedian?
