Just had a trip to Singapore, where it is humid as well. 5D MKII was useless, it sort of  stopped working within 5 shots. 7D performed a lot better, but still gave the error 30 code. I found that by changing  the battery on the 7D the error would go away for some 25 shots, change batery another 25 shots ...
The battery changing trick did not work on the 5D.

As suggested, taking the camera from airco rooms to outside and back again causes condensation inside the camera.
7D performed a lot better then the 5D II. So, I have ordered a 1DX in the hope that this issue will not be there.
I will find out once I get my 1DX (whenever that may be)

hi Sycotek,

congratulations, as far as I know, you are the first one in Perth, so I hope I get mine soon.

Where did you get your's?

I have ordered mine from Camera Electronic in Northbridge, Perth

I am happy that non-pros like you and me can finally get one. It will be just a matter of more sleepless nights for me.

Lighting / Is it possible to radio trigger 580EXII with ST-E3?
« on: June 11, 2012, 12:28:31 AM »

is it possible to add a device to 580EXII, so it can be RADIO triggered with an ST-E3 or an 600EX?



Hi, I noticed that you have only ONE rest day at Namcha. Most people need more then one day to acclimatise. Please be careful, altitude sickness is not a joke!!!
Gokyo is infamous for altitude sickness, many people need to be helicoptered out because they are at risk of dying.

Anyway, the trek you are going to do is fantastic, I have done it three times and the views (photos) are excellent.

Think about your health, so you can enjoy

I have CS5 extended installed on my MAC. This version of ACR 7.1 does not install, so it looks like CS6 is required

Ok, first serious request. Some raw files at high iso?

Lenses / Re: Canon 200-400mm f4 lens - worth waiting for?

A 200-500 is not a replacement for the 100-400 or 400 prime.

Also while the use of extenders has always been questioned, in this case it is built into the lens. Canon can fully optimise the performance of the built in extender and the rest of the lens characteristics beyond what an external generic one might offer.

I have no doubt the 200-400 will be a great seller for its class, even if not reaching huge numbers from the likely very high price. Lots of people would love the zoom range it offers over primes in a similar range.

+1 I fully agree.
I need a top of the range 200-400 zoom. The extender option is like a bonus for me.
I know I will have to pay top dollars, especially in Australia, I expect to pay above 15,000$ as the 400 mm F2.8 is 12,666$ over here in OZ

As always, quality is expensive.
I have had a few cheap ones, but had serious problems with vignetting. Probably because they are significantly thicker then the slim versions from B&W and HOYA that I use.
On the 16-35 L the difference is just shocking. I don't know why the thickness of the glass has such an impact.

Hope this helps
