I need some help, please:
As I read, there is an new 6D-firmware. I tried to get it on my 6D. There was the success-message after updating. I took 2 shots after updating. But after restarting (switch off and on again), the 6D stays black.
No reaction after starting on the display, no reaction if I press any button.
I tried to downgrade to the 1.1.4 firmware, but nothing happened.
There is just an small white dot for one second on the lower left display

Is there anything I can do to get this problem fixed? Or do I have to send it to CPS?


Where are the XXD Cams that meets these (AF, MP,...) specifications? Is there an 80D in the near future planned????

The 5500 moved up in the price (+200$!!). Let us see, if the + is worth the money

"If you can justify the price tag it's hard to fault Canon's new APS-C flagship. With class-leading image quality, fast operation and excellent handling the EOS 7D is everything a semi-pro model should be--and the excellent movie mode will be a welcome bonus to those that like their pictures to move. Arguably the best APS-C SLR on the market today."

Well, if this works, this would be really a gamechanger....

Technical Support / Problems with 6D front wheel & AF issue - Advice needed
« on: November 04, 2014, 05:59:46 AM »
May I ask you for some advice:

My 6D has an temporary problem with the front wheel. I am (problem occurs sometime rare, sometime each hour one time) not able to change the setting (Av, time,...) with the front wheel. But the wheel on the high-format grip works well. (If I remove the battery grip, I does not fix the problem). I have to remove the battery for some minutes, then the front wheel works well again.
The second temproray problems belongs to the AF: In servo mode, it occurs that the AF stops working, although the trigger is pressed halfway. The I have to press the trigger button a few time, then it works again.
Did anybody have such a problem too? What was the problem of your 6D?

My problem is, that the CPS service company  returned the cam without finding anything. They just took 5 shots (as the numbers of shots is just 5 higher than my last shot).

Apple will release an 5k Display. Apple iMac 27" Retina

I am no Apple fan, but this display will be one to buy - if you want to have an extraordinary good look at your photographs :-)


Lenses / Which prime lens for nature fotography?
« on: October 10, 2014, 06:22:11 AM »
I saved some money, I´d like to buy an prime for nature photography (animals, birds,...). I will use it for day trips, no longer expeditions.

As they are not cheap, I´d like to ask which lens to buy?

300mm 2.8 with 2x converter?
400mm 2.8 with 2x converter?
500 or 600 mm 5.6 with an 1.4x converter?

Optically, all 4 lenses are now very good. (my old 400mm DO IS was not).
I will carry it around all day long - so low weighted will be an plus, but I want an good optical quality too. So the 2x converter is not the best solution....

But which one to decide? Can you give me an advice?
My cameras are: 5DII, 6D and 7D

PowerShot Cameras / G7 Picture @ Dpreview.com - High iso quality?
« on: October 07, 2014, 04:25:53 AM »

There are some shots @ higher Iso. IMO, the IQ @ 1600 Iso is a little bit weak. Or am I wrong? Do I expect to much from the G7?

I would like to buy an small camera one for my grandson

www. dpreview.com: Photokina 2014: Nikon interview - 'large-sensor mirrorless could be a solution'

found at: http://www.dpreview.com/articles/7726365599/photokina-2014-nikon-interview-large-sensor-mirrorless-could-be-a-solution

I am looking for an light & compact flashgun, that can be used external and on the camara-shoe.
I found the Godox Witstro AS360 and the similar looking Walimex Pro Light Shooter 360.

I like the ability to use additional lightformers. And these lightformers seem to be not expensive.

Does anybody own one of these products? Which one to prefer?
Can I use them wireless too without the 200€ expensive wireless adapter?
