EOS Bodies / RAW file size of crop mode in 5Ds/5DsR
« on: February 09, 2015, 03:48:05 PM »
According to the specs on, the 1.3x and 1.6x crop modes produce identical size CR2 files to 1.0x images:

1.3x crop60.5
1.6x crop60.5

If you plan on using this body for shooting events in MRAW/SRAW and 1.6x crop when reach is needed to speed up your workflow (with the option to still use full resolution for low shutter count outings), those hopes look to be dashed.

Could Canon have incorrect data listed on their site, or is it just as simple as a full 50 MP CR2 file with a flag set for cropping in the raw editor?

EOS Bodies / Canon EOS 5D Mark IV To Feature 4K Video?

Just recently a rumor surfaced stating that Canon may announce the EOS 5D Mark IV at the beginning of 2015. Now I have been told (thanks) that the successor of the EOS 5D Mark III could feature 4k video. The feature is going to be implemented, so the source, to further push the 5D into the videographers domain.

Currently Canon is featuring 4k on the EOS-1D C (Adorama | B&H Photo). It would be a more than welcome move if the 5D Mark IV would deliver 4k! Canon added HD recording to the EOS 5D Mark II, let’s hope the EOS 5D Mark IV will make the next step. Just to remind: full HD has a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 4K has a resolution of 4096 x 2160.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Smoking flash
« on: September 08, 2013, 05:06:51 AM »
I was shooting an event yesterday, and there were the typical crowds of people taking photos with phones, compacts and DSLR's. At one point during an indoor part of the event, something caught my eye about a guy taking photos next to me. I'm not sure if it was a weird spread of the light from his flash or what, but something made me watch him take the next shot. He was shooting with a rebel of some sort, and as the internal flash fired again, a very noticeable amount of smoke came out of it.

He was wearing a baseball cap, and that was pushing the spring loaded flash back almost home, yet the flash still fired - presumably at full power due to ETTL and minimal subject illumination, and it was mostly projected into a confined black plastic area. I made sure to tell him what happened, and he then sniffed the flash and confirmed it smelt of burning. The flash itself looked fine from my half second glance at it, and I didn't have time to look in the area which I guess was burning.

I know using a crop camera in auto mode while wearing a baseball cap isn't something everyone does, but it can't be too uncommon. It wasn't hot either (inside a tent at about 15 to 20 degrees). If any Canon engineers read this, how about fitting a simple position sensor to detect if the flash is fully up, and only then allow the flash to fire?
