I love that your AF realized that the third person from the right in the top photo was clearly the subject of the shot.  :)

it WAS a great day...  >:(
I assume that since you posted the picture that you are OK..... Hope you get the sled out.....
Yeah, thanks.  I was off the machine taking photos when my friend put it through. Bad communication on my part- I knew there was a dock under the snow and assumed that he did, too. (The ice in the vicinity of any wooden structure is never good.) He didn't.

The only reason it didn't go completely through and tumble down an underwater slope into a fifty-foot gully was that the handlebars caught on the edge of the dock while the right ski held on good ice. It took 6 of us and a lot of gear to get it out the next day. The track was frozen solid but luckily the engine did not ingest any water. The second part of the adventure was towing a frozen-up machine 7KM across the ice and up a hill back to a truck and trailer.

Nice to see you posting again, Canuck!

Thanks, Carl. I haven't been spending enough time here, lately.  ;)

50...30... RETARD, RETARD!

Ha ha, people not in the know will think you're being abusive! ;D
Counting my big-'bus time, I've been hearing that call for 16 years.   ;)

Limited example, but my single battery was not drained after 3 days/2nights with the GPS turned on this week. Track log was on also.
What was the position update timing?

« on: August 14, 2013, 02:29:43 PM »
I suspect that most 6D users turn GPS on and off as needed because leaving it enabled drains the battery flat within 3 days even with the camera turned off.

I leave it off for personal photos- I already know where I live and the privacy issues were obvious right from the introduction of my first iPhone. But the beauty of the feature was evident on a cruise boat I rode 3 days ago that followed a route that was too convoluted for me to track mentally. Sitting on my couch browsing photos today I can map unique sites for future visits later.

You can cut yourself with a knife, kill yourself in your car or electrocute yourself with a kitchen appliance. Just another tool with an upside and a downside.
