EOS Bodies / Re: 5DIII memory cards
« on: January 24, 2013, 11:06:19 AM »
I just bought a Lexar 800x 64Gb CF card from Adorama and put it in my 5D Mark III. I haven't taken it out. I've been transferring via USB, then formatting the card in camera before I shoot again.  Twice now, I've gotten corrupted files, and once a shot that I really wanted just disappeared as I was scrolling though the photos on the camera. This is the first Lexar CF I've ever bought. I've only shot with Sandisk up until now. I think I like Sandisk better.
I just returned two 32 gb Lexar cards to B&H. Got error 80 that locked up my cameras (5DIII and 1DIV) while shooting basketball. There is apparently a known problem with 32 gb Lexar cards and canon cameras. Glad to hear your 64 gb cards are working. I am going to stick with Sandisk from now on.

I added "Record func+card/folder sel" to my favorites menu on my 5DIII and 1DIV so I can switch to CF card quickly and easily. Yes, the 1DIV does the same thing.

Glad I put off getting this - waiting for the Mac version to come out. Just curious, are any of you that are having these problems using the Mac version?

Thanks,

Andy

Zenfolio for photos - unlimited uploads and easy to use. I don't use it for backup though, just sales. I have the $100/year plan. Photography is just a part time gig for me and this is all I need.

Canon General / Black Friday Deals
« on: November 02, 2012, 09:58:42 AM »
Hi Everybody,

I am in the market for a new 1DX or a 400 2.8 II. Is it reasonable to expect any deals on these high end items on or around Black Friday this year? Anyone get a deal on something significant last year? I am willing to wait for the possibility otherwise I might start now looking for used.

Thanks,

Andy

5D MK III Sample Images / Re: Moonbow!
« on: October 31, 2012, 09:57:25 AM »
Beautiful!

According to Wikipedia, it's not really a moonbow, but a halo around the moon produced by ice crystals in cirrus clouds. I still think it's beautiful, screw you Wikipedia! :P

It's a halo ween ;D


Great! - wish I had thought of that!

I am starting to think the green streak is a meteorite - I think I am going to play the lottery today.

Andy

It rather looks like a landing Reptilian spaceship. It's even more rare than a meteorite, so bid double pot today. :D
Andy, lovely picture. What were your settings? I tried taking one 4 years back with my 300D and failed miserably :P



And I agree with marekjoz, definitely an alien ship   ;)

Thanks  - I used my 5D Mark III    TS-E 17 mm    f/4.0    5 sec    400 ISO for the one with the meteorite the other was the same except ISO 800.

No Photoshop here - I was just starting my morning run and noticed this. I quickly ran back inside and grabbed my camera. I have heard about them but never noticed one this spectacular!
Andy
Is there a hot pixel up there ?

I don't think so - the white spots are stars. I will take a closer look tonight to make sure - didn't have a lot of time with it this morning.

I wish the 1DX would start dropping at that rate . . .

Hopefully they will get this out for the 5DIII as well.
