Does the image show ok in the camera?

I didn't notice it until I was going through my images in Lightroom, so I don't know.

Hmm, that is two votes for memory card, I wouldn't have guessed that myself, having never experienced memory card errors before. I am using a pair of new Lexar 32GB 800X pro CF cards with my new body, since I always format the card after download, I have lost track of which card I was using for this frame. I will have to label them "A" and "B" and keep my eyes peeled for another such incident.

I have asked Canon support for help on this, and given them the link to this thread. I will share any insights that they might be able to generate.

Have you also shot in raw?

This problem was present in the raw image, yes.

Are those LED head lights?

Yes, LED lights, the thought crossed my mind, but at least it is not a coherent, high-energy beam like a laser. Hoping that this was a passing phenomenon.

I was walking at night, taking flash pics of the kids the night we arrived at Black Butte Ranch, OR, it was the very first outing with my new 5D Mark III body. I was also using a 430 EX II with a simple slide-on diffuser and a 24-105mm L lens.

Never mind the obvious focus issues of the photo, what the heck is going on in the lower right corner?  Is this an artifact from a focused LED headlamp hitting the sensor in a weird way, or did I get a lemon body?

I shot about 800 frames, including 50 with night flash like this, over the course of a week, and this is the only frame that had any such issues.  Any brilliant insight out there, should I be concerned?

Canonwatch has what is purported to be a leaked image, would seem this beast is getting a bit less mythical.


Pricewatch Deals / Re: Holy Crap Gray market EOS M w/22mm for $236

Just get the kit with the 18 - 55 IS lens from a reputable dealer, then pick up a 22mm on eBay.  USA warranty on the stuff that most likely would break and a great price on the prime.  Seen them sold for ~ $106.

+1, I did that and am very pleased.  Plus, get an EF-S adapter on eBay for $66, I have used one with a Viltrox name and it works great.

I have had good luck with GGS screen protectors.

ditto on my 5D Classic, quality glass, has adhered well.

Here are some pics from the Robbie Williams concert last night here in Vienna

Wow, Robbie Williams is pretty huge in Vienna, it would seem. Thanks for the shots, very much contemplating this lens, probably have to get it from Canada, however, as they won't offer it in the US.

Forgot to say that it is a very cute, priceless photo. Just went through a box of photos of my kids from the 2-4 age with my wife the other day, we laughed so hard we cried.  This will be one of those shots for you, I think!

I have little in the way of constructive criticism to offer here, however as a personal taste thing, I might have boosted the blacks a bit more, but I can't say for sure without having the raw image in front of me.  I like the imperfect symmetry in this shot.

I would just encourage you to keep using that lens/body combination at Golden Hour, you will quickly develop a personal candid portrait style and you will get some great images.

Very cool, creative compositions.  Definitely a situation where HDR is called for, if you can pull it off.  Do you recall how you achieved the top-most one? I would guess a simple exposure fusion of two or three images.

at least it's not a joke like the 60D; it looks likes a real XXD body
can you name those apparent differences? i cant tell. im serious. in my eyes, it actually looks somewhat small

The dimensions do appear more like a 50D than a 60D, the new camera is definitely taller, at least with respect to width, than the 60D, and the shoulder bearing the function dial is flatter, like the 50D.  It is of course speculation, but this could be the return the the more rugged semi-pro body, although if it was, you would think the package would list that as a feature.  Then again, the original 50D box didn't list magnesium frame as a feature either.

Lighting / Any new wireless Speedlites on the horizon?
« on: June 21, 2013, 08:04:42 PM »
I have been playing a lot with off-camera flash using a 580EX and a pair of 430EX Speedlites. I have been triggering them with four Cactus V5s, which are nice, simple radios, but no E-TTL, but maybe the most annoying feature is that you have to climb ladders to adjust settings manually or wake them up when they go to sleep. [

I would love to perhaps upgrade my wireless flashes, was considering taking the plunge into Pocket Wizard land, but could also go the way of a 600EX-RT and the ST-E3-RT trigger. I love my 430EX flashes and I am wondering whether Canon can be expected to come out with a 430EX II replacement with RT any time soon.

I have scanned the Lighting section of the forum, have not seen any good rumors or gossip, so I thought I would throw out the question for those who may know or have an informed guess.
