Do you believe every ... yearly CR thread regarding 35mm 1.4L II, 100-400 L II etc?

Actually I believe that the threads relating to 35 L II and the 100-400L II are created twice every quarter. Of course it is usually nothing short of arrant nonsense but it's fun while we are at it!

Back on topic, Canon does seem to giving importance to the compact segment where everyone seems to be losing market share to smartphones. IMHO, it is a losing battle but then they may try some new tech in the compact segment only for it to filter into the DSLR products.

No mirrorless iteration though ... I would have thought of an update to the EOS-M but then probably not.

BTW, what is it with the EVF (External View Finder)? Will this be the same as an Electronic View-Finder? Just wondering whether Canon will release a FW update allowing the flash hotshoe to communicate with the EVF making them usable for DSLRs / EOS-M. That said, I personally wouldn't bother with it unless it gives me focus peaking.

BTW Neuro, why does LV silent shooting results in the lights not firing?

In live view mirror is up and the shutter is open, so an electronic first curtain is used.  I believe live view silent shooting complicates the timing of the shutter with the flash, but I'm not positive.  My speculation aside, the manual does state that a non-Canon flash will not fire if live view silent shooting is set to Mode 1 or Mode 2 (p.189 of the 5D3 manual).  It is set to Mode 1 by default.

Thanks a ton for this.

did it work?

Was traveling ... Will try tomorrow and revert. Thanks

Photography Technique / Photography fail moments !!!
« on: February 06, 2014, 11:12:54 AM »
I was recently traveling and was in the aisle seat. The pilot announced that we were flying over Mumbai. The lady in the window seat whipped out a 70D from her bag, flash popped on and she proceeded to take photos of Mumbai from about 10000 ft with the flash on.

I still remember the shock on her face when she checked the LCD after taking the photos and them commenting ... This is supposed to be a good camera!!!  :o

FACEPALM !!!

What photography fail moments have you guys faced?

You need to go into the menu settings and set live view silent shooting to disabled.

Thanks a lot ... I'll try that.

Lighting / Problems with Elinchroms

Hello people, I've run into a problem with my Elinchrom lights and need your help. I have the Dlite 4 kit and s using them this morning with the 6D. I tried taking a self portrait with the help of the EOS  remote app but the lights won't fire. Then I tried using live view but still no luck. The lights are working fine otherwise.

Is there anything that I'm doing wrong? Is there a way for the lights to fire with the LV?

Yet another patent ... Canon does seem to be on a bit of an innovation overdrive  ;D

OTOH, this is yet another patent that may not see light of day.

Canon General / Re: recover JPEG photos
« on: February 04, 2014, 08:04:28 AM »
What a low level format does is overwrite the data with zero values. A simple format on the other hand simply changes the file management system and makes the existing data invisible theoretically. It is only after the seemingly empty space is filled that the data which existed previously is eliminated.

High end data recovery using forensic tools is certainly possible and the costs themselves are outlandish and well beyond the scope of simply making the images irrecoverable for normal usage.

Hi,
The one I recommend definitely works on a card that is formatted in camera, formatted hard drive on pc etc..

Cheers Graham.

do these softwares work if the cf card has been re formatted in the camera or only if they have been deleted?

It depends on the type of format you do in camera. The 6D provides an option of a "low level format" of a SD Card which writes zero values to the memory. The images are no longer recoverable in such a case.

If it only writes zeros and nothing else, the images are still easily recoverable. Jpgs can easily be recovered even after the whole disk had been filled (with files/normal data), formatted and repartitioned several times. It is possible to make the jpgs unrecoverable even if you deleted them normally without overwriting them but it's more tedious to do it afterwards. It is generally easier to recover images than it is to make them unrecoverable. You can recover most jpgs easily with the unix program recoverjpeg.

No you cannot. Try it.

In one of his blogs Roger Cicala writes "I make it a rule never to argue with people who claim absolute knowledge, no matter how wrong they are". I can see the merit of this practice looking at the way this thread is going...

Good point  :)

And I forgot to borrow some of Neuros sarcasm tags, sorry.

By the way, I appreciate you (and some others like Neuro, Jrista) trying to drill some reason and sense of balance into these debaters. At the end of the day (thread?) that effort itself might not succeed, but people like me get to know a lot about photography in the bargain.

I had consciously stopped posting simple "+1" posts but in this case it is unavoidable ...
