Why would a pro want to use a test camera at something like the Olympics and/or the world cup. Surely they wouldn't be allowed to use/sell the images made with the test units due to the NDA's they would have signed. Canon or Nikon would have to compensate the photographers enough to cover the potential lost revenues from not being able to sell any pictures. In which case the photogs would just use the test units as teathered cameras and shoot as normal with their own kit so who really cares how reliable the test unit is. No?

Would the next "logical" step be using CDAF on one of the focus points and then PDAF takes over in AI-Servo (or video) mode to enable focus anywhere on the sensor (with a STM lens no doubt)? A combo AF system for AI-servo mode sounds like it could be very useful to a lot of people. No?

Still no clean HDMI. That's it!! I am selling this overpriced camera! Nikon D4s next! ARROGANT Canon!

And please consider this Canon:  Not all who own the 1DX are sports idiots or ornithologists, some just want the best possible low light performance for their creative work!

I work and shoot in the dark (video and stills). And the 1DX has one stop ISO advantage over the 5D Mark III, and has way less color banding when lifting shadows than the 5D Mark III. But after Canon gave the 5D Mark III clean HDMI the advantage is less than before on video.It is certainly possible to give the 1DX clean HDMI, since the 1DC hast it. But Canon finds it more convenient to force me into selling my house to buy the 1DC, than to give the 1DX the same features as the Nikon D4 !!!

Why did you put "idiots" behind sports?
Probably left out a comma. I don't shoot birds or sports or idiots either.

Why is it that someone is a troll the minute that one person does not have the same thought as the next. I think you're a troll cause you don't agree with me (yeah.... it sounds as stupid as it sounds to me too).

So lightroom has the ability to correct your mistakes, but don't you want to correct your mistake before making the mistake?

Now, we all make mistakes.... but, rhetorically... How about setting the white balance and even if it is good for one shot, but not good for another shot, then using lightroom? Come on... go outside your comfort zone.

I think what the other guys are saying is just use AWB and shoot in RAW and then there is no "mistake" you are just waiting until PP to actual make your choice of WB. Auto WB just means you'll make your choice later and at trigger time you can worry about things that can't be changed later. No trolling.

My wife creates 3d renderings from thousands of TIFF files which as you can imagine take quite some time on a MBP. So I was looking at getting an older refurb Mac Pro. After seeing the prices I ditched that idea and built a "Hackentosh". I'll probably get crucified for this but wow! For around $1000 (excluding box & screen) she now does her renderings in a couple minutes instead of overnight on a Quad Core box with 16GB RAM. And I haven't installed the SSD or an additional 16GB RAM yet. Bang for your buck you can't beat a Hackentosh.  ;D

Thanks guys. Weird thing is on my screen the second picture only half loads. I'm just hoping it's showing completely for all of you.  :-[

Has anybody tested these new caps with a 5D mkIII to see if there is still the light leak. I think Canon did a dirty on us and didn't fix the light leak in camera but just produced a "light leak proof" lens cap.  :P

Bathing ellie. Somewhere in Botswana. (was taken a couple years ago)

I already had one EX580 ii and I was looking at getting a second one. I am really glad that I found the Yongnuo kit. Instead of getting another 580, or even a 600 I got 3 YN622 flash triggers and a YN568 flash, AND saved myself $300. The YN622s so far have been very reliable and the YN568 is absolutely great especially for the price. I'm thinking of adding another 622 and 568 to my kit now. I never thought flash photography could be so much fun until I took my flash off my camera. I can really recommend the YN kits.
