EOS Bodies - For Stills / Long exposures won't record to 5d mark iii
« on: March 30, 2013, 12:26:16 AM »
This is an upsetting thing for me, considering what I love the most is doing startrails. I took my camera out tonight, slapped on the 17mm ts-e and tried to do a 20 minute exposure. Once I was done, the red processing light remained on for a good five minutes...I turned the camera off and a screen popped up saying, "recording image to disk"...I let this screen run for 10mins before taking my battery out and killing the cycle.

Has anyone run into this problem?

Do I have a defective mark iii?

I have yet to do any firmware updates..

My first thought was my memory card is not fast enough, but it's sandisk extreme cf 60mb/s. I tried an "extreme pro" 90mb/s and I ran into the same issue.

Any help would be wonder as this is really bumming me out :(

Ps: 30 sec exposures take about 45secs to record and pop up as a preview....

Thank you For all of your responses. I guess my real question for all the 50 mm L-series users out there was: is the 50mm 1.4 not enough. I could sell my 50 L and my old version of the 24 – 70 to purchase the newest version of the 24 – 70 and still have money left over to buy the 50mm 1.4.

Thanks again.

So I have the 50mm L and the first version of the 24-70mm L. If I were to sell them both on eBay, I could afford the second version of the 24-70...I just bought the 70-200 IS f/2.8 II and have been blown away with its sharpness and would love to have that kind of sharpness in the 24-70 range.

My question is: do you think it's worth giving up my 50L to pursue this, and why or why not? I love the 1.2 and I'd probably eventually buy the 85mm 1.2 down the road

What are your thoughts?!?

Thanks! : 8)

The 17mm ts-e is quite the monster of lens. I love it, but I am so frightened when using it!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D mark III auto focus (newb) question!
« on: February 20, 2013, 10:04:19 PM »
I'm an accountant full time. I just bought a 5d not too long ago and haven't really had a good sit down with her. My question is about the way the auto focus picks what to focus on. On my 7d, I never had to do any kind of adjusting; I always felt it just kind of knew what I was trying to focus and would do it, but as of right now my 5d only selects the very middle of each frame? Is there a quick way to allow the camera to pick what it believes to be best?

I know this question is ridiculous, but I have little to no time during tax season!

Thank you!

Lenses / Re: Help me choose between the two: 70-200 f2.8 IS or 17 TS-E?

5D Mark III | 7D | 17mm TS-E f/2.8 | 24-70mm f/2.8 L | 50mm f/1.2 L | 70-200mm f/2.8 II IS | 100mm f/2.8 Macro | ST-E3 | (x3) 600 ex

New additions?  Congrats!  ;D

(Note - the TS-E 17mm is f/4.)


Thank you!

I'm in the mood for a piece of fruit. Should I have an apple or an orange?


I shouldn't buy them both.

I disagree.  You should buy them both.   :P

I am torn. I shoot both weddings, and shoot real estate. I shoot both wide life and the night sky. I shouldn't buy them both. Which one would you choose and why?

Lenses / Re: Canon 24-70 ii - another superlative
« on: January 16, 2013, 11:56:05 AM »
The price is extreme, regardless of the results. I am wanting the 70-200 2.8 mk ii or I could sell my 24-70 mk i and put that money towards the mk ii version...but why? I have loved my 1st version since the day I bought it! On the 5D mark iii, is the first version of the 24-70 not enough? Yes, the new version is sharper and all around the better lens, but again, is version one simply being wrote off? I believe it delivers. I think I will wait for a price drop before upgrading. Here is a 24-70mm 2.8 mk i example using a polarizer filter and HDR mode on the 5D mark iii. Please note, I am posting this from a snapshot of the original using my cellphone.

Nice editing... Like it.

Thanks...the only thing done to this photo was boosting saturation with red. Other than that, this is a single long exposure.

What do you all use to light paint? I'm loving the sense of motion El wires gives you!

Lenses / Quick macro question!
« on: December 24, 2012, 12:24:55 PM »
I have the 100mm and in the future I'm planning upping to the L version. I love the macro lens; however, I still would like to get closer. I am aware of the exsistence of canons tubes you can purchase, but will that get you...close as in, right up on an insects eyes? Or is that kind of thing done with cropping?

Oh, wow, nice! I'd be very interested in this :)

I just ordered this one:http://www.optcorp.com/product.aspx?pid=1287-14905

Heard nothing but good things.

I would love too see some of your test shots once you've familiarized yourself with it! I'm sure it'll be awesome!

i used the tokina 11-16 on a crop body - works quite fine, 30sec/f2.8/ISO400 gives decent images.
took some 400 shots (last half hour clouds came in :( ) and merged all together:

On a crop, i would suggest the tokina 11-16 II - should have better flare-controll and other benefits ;)

Great shot! Just out of curiosity, do you take one image with the lens cap on for canceling out noise?
