17mm TSE...it was almost dark...very hard to set the lens tilt, etc. 5DIII is amazing!

How many exposures did you take? 3?

I think I shot 7 exp.  to preserve the highlights around that back door....the image is misleading due to the sensor's ability to record near darkness in the foreground compared to the bright highlights of the sun around that back door.
The dynamic range was extreme.

Well done!
Did you use photomatix?

............................
I emailed Canon Professional Services (CPS-USA) and they replied that they had notified the responsible party to update the registration and CPS site, but had no ETA.  DxO has listed 8/14 for their correction module - if Adobe keeps their schedule, their next update will also be in August, with a release candidate coming sooner.  We won't know if the profile will be in the release until the RC appears.  I would expect ptlens to have the first profile, DxO next, then Adobe, which is usually the order they seem to release correction profiles.

Strange that it takes so much time.
I registered mine some time ago.
Which country is that?  The USA site is a little different.
This is CPS Europe accessed via The Netherlands

I´ve used DPP4 and EOS Utility 3 since the official Release, but yesterday EOS Utility crashed
while downloading some RAW´s from the Cam. - and now EOS Utility does not start anymore.
Wenn attaching the Camera - EOS Utility crashes, uninstall and reinstall does not fix the Problem, so i assume an Problem inside some other Code ?

Actually i use again EOS Utility 2 and DPP4 ( not that fun to reinstall Windows  :o ) .

Any Idea ?

Greetings Bernd

Actually I have no idea. But, could there be a problem with the memorycard of your camera? Is there a way to check an other memorycard?

Have a look at the Tamrac Velocity series bags. They carry like a sling and have a stowable waist strap for more aggressive riding. They are very stout and give a decent amount of protection without being too clunky. I have the Velocity 8 which will handle 5D + 70-200 2.8. If your not going telephoto, you can get away with a 6 or 7.

I am using the Velocity 8 for 5DMKIII 16-35 (and usuall have add. space for the 70-300L or 35mm+50mm
Very handy to swing it from your back to the front, open the zipper, take out camera, shoot, put back the camera and swing it back on your back

.....
addendum: there's been a lot of speculation and surprise at price.  I suspect the existence of decent cheap 3rd party competitors eg, Tamzooka might at least keep Canon from going off the rails as far as price

You think so..would you not? I think Canon is counting on those loyal red ring fanboys/girls...

Summer visitors, immature male ruby throated hummingbird and an American goldfinch. Both shot with 5DMKIII + 600 II and 1.4X III, f8 - loaded the DLO for this combo and applied.

Both are great Vern!
