Lighting / Re: 600ex-rt overheating?
« on: June 10, 2012, 09:04:27 PM »
This may be a dumb question but are you sure they were firing at only 1/64?

Try test firing one at 1/64 ten times in a row and see if it overheats and activates the red screen. Then wait and try 20. It shouldn't overheat at that power level.

This will be a good way to test it. I have one 600EX-RT on order and wonder if I should hold on now.

Could an omnibounce for the 580ex2 fit the 600ex? Perhaps all it needs is to cut out a notch for the gel sensor?

Canon has issued an advisory on the issue http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/eos_slr_camera_systems/eos_digital_slr_cameras/eos_5d_mark_iii?pageKeyCode=prdAdvDetail&docId=0901e02480532d6b

To Users of the EF200mm f/2L IS USM and EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM Lenses with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera.

Thank you for using Canon products.

We have confirmed that when the EF200mm f/2L IS USM and some units of the EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM lenses are used with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera, the Lenses may emit an abnormal noise.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera does not need to be repaired as a result of this phenomenon.

The support measures for this phenomenon have been decided and they are as described below.

Phenomenon
If either of the Lenses is attached to the camera with the Image Stabilizer switch on the Lenses set to ON, the Image Stabilizer will synchronize with the autofocusing (AF) function and an abnormal noise may occur. This abnormal noise does not affect captured images.
This phenomenon only occurs when the camera is used with either of the Lenses, and does not occur when the camera is used with other lenses.

Affected Products
EF200mm f/2L IS USM Lens
EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM Lens

*This phenomenon does not occur with cameras other than the EOS 5D Mark III.

*If the fifth and sixth digit of the six-digit alphanumeric number that is imprinted on the lens mount of the above EF lenses is of any of the following numbers, the lens is affected.

    EF200mm f/2L IS USM: If the fifth and sixth digit is 00, 01, or 02.
    EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM:If the fifth and sixth digit is 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, or 06.

The Lenses affected by this phenomenon will be inspected and repaired free of charge beginning May 21, 2012.  If you own one of the affected Lenses, please contact our Customer Support Center.

This information is for residents of the United States and Puerto Rico only. If you do not reside in the USA or Puerto Rico, please contact the Canon Customer Support Center in your region.

The Kirk plate looks to be very nicely rounded and contoured to the camera body.

Any pics of the Kirk plate?

66
How does the Kirk L plate fare in this regard i.e. any design issue with "digging" into the camera body?

I have used this method for all my L lenses http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/article_pages/cameras/1ds3_af_micoadjustment.html It's an accurate method and it is free

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5d3 not soft anymore?
« on: April 28, 2012, 08:07:37 PM »
I borrowed a friends 5d3 for a few days because he's been bothered by the IQ. I've shot lots and compared images taken with it and my 5d2 and the 5d3 look softer and gives some images a plasticky look.

The owner still has his 5d2 and his thoughts are the same.

Every shot taken by the 5d3 needs to have to be put through high pass filter in photoshop to make them look as sharp as the 5d2 taken SOOC.

Post your sample shots and your setup details

A common problem with shooters complaining of soft images is the AI servo 1st and 2nd image priority setting. Set it to Focus priority always!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon, STOP shipping defective products!!!

More of a case of defective usage than defective product. As the saying goes "Much ado about nothing"

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D Mark III Light Leak Resolution (Canon USA)
« on: April 24, 2012, 11:14:10 AM »
I am a noobie on this forum but have been following this issue, as I own one of the affected 5D iii's. From what I can tell on reading up on this issue and reading the forums, I too am in the camp that this is a non-issue and will not affect my photos. However, it is still disappointing to spend 3.5K on a camera and then have this happen. This was my jump from crop factor to full frame, and I trusted Canon. Not saying I don't any more, but I still don't understand it all.

So a technical question, and likely a dumb one - does the leaked light just hit the light meter, or does it also hit the sensor?

No effect on the imaging sensor

did canon fix the problem and will be implementing this change on all new units produced in the factories from now on?
eg. are the new models xxxxx3xxxx onwards going to have the light leak fixed?

what actually happened over here?

In my opinion yes, they will fix the design but they will not tell you.
Like I said people, stand up, return your cameras and send a clear message to canon saying we are not ignorant fix your defective design.


Canon Europe will prepare a "Fix-Kit" for all defective Cameras starting mid may. The Service Center will have work 2h on each camera.

So there is a real issue :-) :D

Black electrical tape?

EOS Bodies / 5D Mark ii light leak in top LCD
« on: April 24, 2012, 09:39:27 AM »
5D Mark II leaking light throuth the top lcd.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II (LCD Light Test)

This "issue" is also seen in 5D Mark ii, not just the Mark iii. I was using the Mark ii for years without any real problems though.
