I see a big set of Marilyn Monroe lips. Wait, wait... maybe it's the Rolling Stone logo...

Canon General / Re: Lost inspiration

Everyone's different, but I'd suggest not to force it. Don't worry about themes, travel or projects to re-kindle inspiration- just put the camera away for a month or even 6 and take up another hobby for a while. You're already infected- the photography bug will come back on its own.

EOS Bodies / Re: Why a high MP camera?

Yes, drooling should always be avoided or is that too big a generalization?

Depends - my camera is weather sealed, so if I'm using it with a weather sealed lens, a little DRool isn't a problem.  :P
I suspect that the pictures you've published of your photogear have generated all sorts of DRool...

Aaaaaaaaaaand he's back - say thanks for the pics on our behalf, would you, Canuck? :)
Already have. AND invited him to speak at my local camera club.  ;)

It makes me smile, all these rich people with expensive 5D3 cameras who don't want to pay for Canon batteries.
Not fair, dude.

First of all -it's a 6D, not a 5D3. And, everything adds up: lenses, tripod, backpacks, camera, accessories- it's not an unlimited well. Further to that- mortgages on two properties, 3 teenage kids getting ready for university, and, (not trying to elicit sympathy, just explaining budget constraints)- other expensive hobbies.

If I can (intelligently) save ten bucks- I'll do it. I'd rather give that 10 bucks to the Heart & Stroke lady than to Canon, especially when there's a perception (rightly or wrongly) that Canon's attempting to extort their customers through proprietary technology.

Portrait / Re: my first new born baby photos :)

Forgot about this thread...seems a good place for an image from our son's first portrait session.  :)
Great portrait and congrats on the new addition. Fair warning, though. Ours started out all cuddly and cute like that too, but he's now 6'4" and 210 lbs. Something about feeding them after midnight or too many Flintstones vitamins... beware!

I didn't do enough trouble-shooting to nail down that this was indeed what was happening and now the battery is gone. It may have been a very inconveniently-timed charge depletion and with no way to display the battery's current charge I did not eliminate that possibility.

The replacement, a Digipower, won't even charge in the Canon charger so I took the plunge and purchased the Digipower charger. (One charger travels with me, the other stays at home, I like redundancy.)  ;)  I don't have the intestinal fortitude/unlimited hobby funds to intentionally select the Cancel option on the replacement battery.

NASA uses Nikon because nearly every MF telephoto NIKKOR lens can focus beyond infinity.

Don't you mean:

*edit*
Sorry, possibly bad information the first time- could just be a charging issue...

I have a non-Canon battery as a backup for my 6D. It's about 6 weeks old and other than not properly communicating its charge level, has previously worked fine in the camera.

Last week while on a family vacation and changing batteries late at night- I accidently selected the (paraphrasing) "ignore this battery?" prompt. Poof. The camera no longer plays nice with that specific battery.

I've been through the manual and can't find a way to reverse this setting. Anyone know how to do this?

Site Information / Re: Minimum CR Forum IQ?

.We just had a thread shut down for being "beyond stupid." That would suggest that posts must meet a certain intellectual level before proceeding to full forum discussion. What's the standard?

Although I didn't personally find the original post all that funny, I agree with you that we don't need humour police. The membership will either encourage or ignore the budding comedic talent.

But please- no fart jokes.
