Thank you for the heads up. For some reason I just bought a 64GB 1066X and it was only US$ 88.xx.

Amazing price, even if I am not entirely sure I need another one. Still always good to have back up cards, just in case!

Will this feature be built-in to new C300's, or is it retrofit only?

I think this is a very important question, and I hope someone replies.

I asked exactly the same thing for the C100 Upgrade they did not so long ago but nobody replied.

Seems really silly to buy something from Canon, pay, then hand it right back and say upgrade it.

Software & Accessories / Re: Shooting in the rain

Recommendations for a good "Camera Condom"? You know, these various bags you can get to cover your camera for bad weather.

What lens are you using in the rain?

I shoot in the rain, often very heavy tropical rain storms, quite a lot now and I find Canon's own rain covers are the best. They fit perfectly but only come in three sizes so it really depends on what lens you use.

I have used others as well, the cheap plastic ones are just that and almost disposable as they are very easy to rip.

I have all three Canon covers and have never had an issue with them at all. Highly recommend them.

Amazing shot, eml58. I am not sure if it is just me, but I would much prefer it with the top chopped off, so the leopard is in the top right of the pic.

Hi Expat, your right, I was a bit stuck on what to do with this Image, I tried framing the green with the Tree Trunks, would have liked to get closer to the Lady, but she was one of the young shy ones, still getting used to the vehicles & immediately after this Image she came real fast down from the tree, because it was early morning I'de set my Shutter Speed at 1/80th, Dumb thing to do with a Leopard in a Tree (actually slightly dumb at anytime with any Animal), I fluffed everyone of those shots unfortunately.

This was Pre my 200-400, getting the 400 off & fitting the 1.4x was & still is a PIA, the 200-400 makes it that much easier to frame & get that little bit more reach, still, I do miss that 400 @ f/2.8 at times.

You got the shot, and as are most of your pics it is amazing. I just think you can cut the top portion off in post, but that is just my opinion. I have no interest in the tree, but wow did you capture a great look in the eyes of that leopard!! You're going to have to start a book - The Photographic Adventures of ......

since a compact like this you're gonna want to use ooc jpg alot

I am more interested in its RAW capabilities, than ooc jpg. I do not mind a bit of post, its main attraction to me is the portability/quality combination.

If I do get this camera it will be to use as a 2nd or 3rd camera for video interviews, and as a carry-around to events where I am not working and do not want to take my main Canon gear. Something you can stick on your belt and use instead of grabbing the mobile.

It does sound great, and I am very pleased that I will not be passing a Sony Store, or even a shop that sells this little beauty, any time soon otherwise I think I would also be getting one.  ;)

Definitely looking forward to the reviews that will come out on this camera.

Enjoy your new Fuji, distant.star.

US$ 1,199.00 for the new 16-35 is pretty reasonable. I just wish it was f/2.8. If they make a new f/2.8 version with improvements over the old lens, I will snap one up.

Yes, After that, I buy 2004 Canon 20 D as my Back up camera----Ha, Ha, Ha, And I still shoot with her too.

May I ask why? I gave my 20D away to a friend a long, long time ago. Why would you shoot with that at times rather than your better cameras?

Personally I always like to use the best camera I have.

Dear Friend Mr. expatinasia.
You are right, " We most use the Best Camera that We have "---Yes, BUT, I will not buy 4 1DX Bodies at the same time, Because of High Cost. BUT, when I go to shoot the Activities/ Sport/ Volunteer Racing, I want to have 4 Cameras with 4 Lenses in my hands all the times, with out change the lenses and miss the best shots---Yes, With out contaminate the Clean Sensor  , to get the dust, when I change the Lens in Dusty area.
Yes, MY 5D MK II  is one of the Best HIGH ISO, to shoot in the Dark area, 7D = Small sensor = great to shoot the Birds with 600 mm = 960 mm. ( Full frame Sensor), That give more MM. farther range for Safari, My 20 D = Great Camera in the Sun shine day and When I set up AUTO MODE with my 14 MM. F/ 2.8--Yes, This 20 D. never miss a shot, and Great for Point and shoot for street Photography.  My Dear 1DS = Super AF/ Super fast AF and the most Accurated AF of my Camera= Great for Out door Sport Shooting, BIG BODY and Perfected fit in my big hands.    Yes, My New tiny Baby Canon EOS-M with 22 mm. F/ 2.0 in my Fanny pack, at my belly 95% of the times, to shoot the recorded Picture that I see in front of my eyes in every days., And I do not need to carry my big back pack on my back on every days.

To make  it short :---All cameras have their own Best Abilities/ Best Functions, Like in Army Platoon---Every one in the platoon have their own guns, Difference Guns to support each other, and to do the Right job at the right weapons.
In the Photography , Any Camera  have more than 4 MP = Great to make a great print at = 3X5 inches, or great Photo on the Web Site---No We do not need 22 MP, to reduce the size to put on my FACEBOOK. That Just only my IDEAS.
Have a great day, Sir.

Interesting, thanks Khun Surapon.

I shoot quite a lot of major sporting events and rarely - if ever - see photographers with more than two cameras. I use two, one with a 400 f/2.8 ii and the other with 70-200 f/2.8 ii, because like you say, it is not a good idea to change lenses in the open, but also you do not have the time, so two bodies with different lenses is vital. Each to their own, I guess. :-)

Photography Technique / Re: Photographs in the "Blue Hour"

Here are some from the Hamilton/Burlington area in Ontario, Canada. These are all HDR.

I do not normally like HDR so much but some of those shots are very nice. Well done.

rcarca - I know Marlow well, and I hope you do not mind me saying but I think your shots are too blue. Great place for pics though. When I am in the UK I go a lot for coffee.

If you want to buy one of my canvas/fabric 1D X bags let me know. Though I do not have the Canon black box it came in as I threw that away.

As for what I got with the 1D X club (which I still do not fully understand) it was a very limited miniature camera (not 1D X) which is why it has pride of place on my desk at work. I am not willing to sell that (unless we are talking good money) as I quite like it, and I know that very few people have it. BTW I kept the black box for that, and it comes in its own case too.

I have other stuff too if you are interested, including a 4GB 1D X usb stick/thing.

Canon could do regional firmware but they don't.

That would be nice, but then I guess where would it end - we could end up with so many different types of 5D III/1D X as to just complicate matters, and of course the grey market would just go nuts!

I always forget about the 29.59 cut off, which is dangerous as I often do 18-24 minute videos. And tend not to shut off when someone says the wrong thing which means the actual recording can be longer.

Good to be reminded of this. Thanks.
