Hi,

it most likely will not work, but it would be great to have an EVF for the EOS M?

What do you think?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: EOS-1D X Firmware Version 2.0.3 Released

After I installed the new frimaware, I quickly went to my local bird spot. It was at sunset and the light was dropping fast.
Auto iso with exposure compensation  works as it should. I have been waiting for this and it finally is here.
Furthermore, I notice a lot better AF in low light, I ended up shooting at 8000 iso, and AF is a lot better then before

Hi,

this is an extremely difficult subject.

Best explanation that I have found can be read on:

indeed, I use two Ezyboxes and I am happy with them. They are easy to carry as they fit in a small bag pack and they do the job.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1D-X underexposure
« on: November 15, 2013, 06:49:51 AM »
Hi, it took me sometime to find this as well:
Custom menu settings , second tab, AE Microadjustment, see manual page ~329.

After you have set it, it will be confirmed in the "info settings" on the lcd, so press the info several times until you look at the window that starts with WB shift,
Then look at
third row down is says AE +/_  "value you have set it at"

Hope this helps

you can adjust the metering system inside the menu.  this feature is exclusive to 1d series but Nikon offers it from the D7000
sad huh?

Thanks, I was not aware of this.

I have changed my setting to +5/8

Hi,

yes, I do experience similar underexposures, but it in my case it depends on the lens e.g

24-70 2.8 L mkI -2/3 EV
70-200 2.8 L mkII 0 EV
Macro 100 mkII +1/3 EV
85 F1.2  -4/3 EV
35 f2.0 mk II 0 EV

of course these are rough averages

Most were shot in  AV mode, around F5.6, evaluative metering.

It would be great if we would have something similar to afma, so an exposure correction by lens ???????

Software & Accessories / Re: Will the new MAC Pro support 10 bit colour?
« on: November 10, 2013, 06:34:59 AM »
Thanks for all the good advice.

I am a bit worried about the fan, I will go and check it out before I buy one.

Indeed it is CG276 (that was a typo).

Still in doubt if a top end NEC (PA271) is not a better option then the Eizo CG276.

Software & Accessories / Will the new MAC Pro support 10 bit colour?
« on: November 06, 2013, 05:35:40 AM »
The new Mac Pro will have dual AMD Firepro Graphics cards.
Does this open up the possibility of supporting 10 bit colour or is the MAC OSX Mavericks operating system still the bottleneck?

I ask this because I intend to spend $$$$ on an Eizo CG267 and a new Mac pro once it will be out in December

Hi,

please do not be to hard on yourself. This has happened to me several times, both with 7D body and 5D II. It never happened with the 1DX. I had more "spontaneous releases" when combined with an extender , especially with the 2X III.

For me, I carry the combo on BR strap and I think that during walking, I gentle touch the release button with out knowing it . That combined with the mass of lens/exntender combo is apparently enough to release it

Hope this helps

Ben
