Lenses / Re: Your lenses for weddings?

5D3

Sigma 35/1.4 Art - incredibly sharp wide open, love it the most. From the morning till night.

Canon 70-200/2.8L II IS - for portrait work - sharp and fast precise AF. Nice results, but heavy and attracts much attention

Canon 24-70/2.8L - not perfect lens, but fast AF and useful for fast moments when moving from one part to another

Canon 17-40/4L - just in case, that I would need something really wide (not using that much)

Canon 50/1.4 - for playing with DOF with details (but now I am using Sigma 35 more)

Canon 85/1,8 - is waiting in my car, just in case I would need it (but not :) )

--------

I can imagine to work just with combo of FF + 35 + 50 + 135 (85)  to get the best results.

Waiting for Sigma 50/1,4 Art. Dreaming about Sigma 85/1,4 Art. And would like to change 24-70 for 24-70/2,8 II. :)

5D MK III Sample Images / Re: 5D3: is shutter dying?
« on: December 03, 2013, 04:51:01 AM »
This is a common problem when using fast shutter speeds under fluorescent lighting. You are using. Shutter speed that is higher than the cycle time for fluorescent lighting which is probably resulting in the odd color casts. Drop down to below 1/60 sec and you should be just fine.

That sounds like good point. Thank you, I will try!

5D MK III Sample Images / 5D3: is shutter dying?
« on: December 03, 2013, 04:32:06 AM »
Hi!

A would like to ask for your opinion about three pictures below. There is a yellow strip on each of them, but is moving from side to side. I think that it is a problem with shutter of my Canon 5D3 - but I am not sure. The reason is that it is not happening always. Mostly it happens under some mixing light conditions, for example bulb light and fluorescent. But if I use a camera outside or in studio, there is no problem at all. So, I am not sure if the problem is really made by shutter (it actually has about 200 000 counts), or by some problem with metering system of white color balance (if it is even possible)..

Thank you for any hints or opinions, what could be possibly wrong.

EXIF info for pictures:

1/500s
f 1,6
3200 ISO
Aparature priority
+ 0,3 EV
auto white balance

For the money.

I love money.

I am using 5D3 every day with 32gb Sandisk Extreme - via card reader. I have my 5D3 for one year just now. I had never have a problem with putting a card in and out. It is just about to do it carefully. It seems like "hoax" for me to read about some bent pins.

I am using 28 Eneloops right now for weddings etc. It is the best, what I ever had.

EOS Bodies / Re: What's the normal battery drain for a 5D3 that's off?
« on: April 03, 2013, 06:52:41 PM »
I do simply over 2500 pictures per single charge of an original 5D3 battery. The record which I had was over 2700 pictures..

I think that 5D3 battery is just amazing. I am not switching the camera off between shots or something. I just do not look at every picture which I had taken. Because I do not need to. :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D or 5D3 for low light candids?
« on: February 16, 2013, 05:10:05 AM »
I have/had both. Together for weddings. 5D3 is incredibly better camera, than 7D.

I sold 7D a couple weeks ago.

Lighting / Re: YN-622 Reviews?

[Hi!

I have bought them via ebay store - directly from the manufactuer. Web link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yongnuo-YN-622C-Wireless-TTL-Flash-Trigger-Canon-7D-5DII-5DIII-1DIV-1DIII-5D-/150878352686?pt=AU_Cameras_Photographic_Accessories&hash=item23210cf52e

At ebay, there are many sellers, where to buy. But this one "hkyongnuophotoequipment" (crazy name :) ) is official ebay seller just from Yongnuo. So, I bought it there because I was sure that I will get the latest version of YN 622C with support for 5D mk III (as I was reading at Internet, some of others sellers may have the older version without the latest firmware of 5D3 support ).

I am from Europe - The Czech republic - the package came from Hong Kong in 7 working days! It was really quick. Marked as a gift, so there were no more taxes.

Many thanks!
It's looking more and more like I should just get them direct from Yongnuo using their ebay site as you mentioned.  Unfortunately Amazon.com will not ship to canada as we have to use the amazon.ca site instead which does not carry the same things for some reason!  I think I'll let the chinease new year backlogs clear up a bit and then I'll just order form hkyongnuophotoequipment store on ebay.
Thanks for all the help everyone!

You are welcome!

Note: If you would like to try to use them with studio strobes, as I was writing about, you will need to buy this 6 dollars cable too: http://www.ebay.com/itm/RF-603-6-35mm-cable-Flash-Studio-Strobe-3-5mm-Adapter-/160727446756

I have got YN 622C a couple days ago.

I had no time for deep tests, but it seems that all is working perfectly. They are little bit bigger, than I thought. But it doesn't matter.

BUT I was really impressed, that YN 622C is working with my studio strobes too - and what is more - now I can shoot with my studio strobes up to 1/8000s ! That was something really unexpected for me.

So I am thinking to buy two more of YN 622C to use it as a main receiver/transmitter for my strobes. The old ones gave me 1/160s for my Canon 5D3. This one can help me with really quick movement, like jumping people in my studio, etc.

So - however I did not test them hardly yet - they seems just perfect for me. And the price is really nice.

Where did you buy yours?  Would you recommend them in terms of shipping time, shipping price, and duties?  Thanks!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Strange sound inside 5D III (?)
« on: February 09, 2013, 07:14:42 PM »
I know this is an old post, but I have the same issue with my mk3 but not my Mk2, and I was just wondering if anyone knows weather the noise is normal or not.

I still have that sound coming from my 5D3. But after almost 80.000 of shutter release, I can say, that it has no depend on the camera functions. It seems just normal sound for 5D3.

I ordered YN-622c just four days ago. I am waiting till it come (delivery should be in 10 to 25 days to my country). I bought it directly from http://stores.ebay.com/hkyongnuophotoequipment - so it should be the latest version which is compatible with my 5D III. Other stores (which I red about) are maybe little bit cheaper, but may have the versions of YN-622c with oldest firmware - which is not supported by 5D III.

Looking really forward to these flash remotes. For less than 100 dollars it seems perfect. I was also looking at Pixel King. But picked Yongnuo at the end.
