I will try it out tonight and let you know how it works.
I tried out the MC-36R (C3) and it works fine with the 5D3 in both manual mode and time-lapse.

yep tried mine out too and its all good

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Silent shutter for 1D MK IV

there is
just change the AF drive
and its the single shot box with the S instead of just the plain single shot box
the camera sounds like its sneezing when you use it :P

Thank you  ;)

on the link it doesn't say that it's compatible with the 5D III. Have you tried it (or do you know someone who has)?

because the 3-pin connection should fit the 5D III but i want to make sure there's no problem with the remote operating correctly

I'l check mine tonight to be 100% sure before i say yes but i am 99% sure it will work
this also works well from an iphone

I disagree, when i tested the mk3 and mk2 side by side at ISO 100 the 5Dmk2 was ever so slightly sharper than the 5dmk3 and the mk3 clearly had a little less moire. however that said this was only really noticable at 200% crop anyway so for all intents and purposes they are near enough to being equal in real world use

Are you referring to the Mac in general or just within DPP ?

mac in general,  just in finder seems to be no way to group rename the way you can in windows

Hello fellow Photogs, I'd like your insights on what is the BEST lens/es on a 5D Mark 2 for:

1) Portraiture?

2) Landscapes?

3) Weddings (if you can choose only 2)?

easy, my 2 favourite lenses :)

2 lenses that cover all that and then some,
Canon 16-35 f2.8L II and sigma 85mm f1.4

this may sound retarded but here goes
I have been a long time windows user and changed to mac
Is there anyway to batch rename files in a mac without additional software
in windows its as simple as highlight all the files right click rename and it automatically add a sequential number to the name you give it. I cant seem to see anything on the mac that can do that  :-[

is this an america only thing? I've been all over the world (except america) and never ever felt remotely concerned about being robbed for my camera gear, obviously i keep it close at ahand and dont leave it lying around for opportunistic thieves but as for being assaulted and robbed? no way

I can see this being a 7Dx

18MP APS-C
ISO clsoer to the performance of the 5Dmk3 but not quite as good
8 fps
dual card slots
body/ sealing / button latyout similar to 5Dmk3
61pt AF system same as 5Dmk3 with same metering
no flippy screen

it'll be a weapon and cost $2500+

I think the new rebel will get the old 19pt AF from the 7D
I think canon have learned their lesson about putting in crappy AF systems into otherwise good cameras

I just wanted to say how much I'm looking forward to receiving it!!

How are you all getting on with yours?

My second one is a totally different camera to my first one
still havent taken it out for a proper run been busy
hope you get a good one :)

Seem ok so far :) what was wrong with yours?
AF was completely screwed up couldn't get a sharp shot to save its life
I micro adjusted it for all my lenses (I even posted 50 raw files vs my 5Dmk2 up here)
and after MA the images were fine at that setup but took the camera off and shooting and the AF was wayyyyy off still also none of my kenko adapters worked all came up 00 error on top
AI servo produced maybe a 5% hit rate and even those were not sharp.

this new copy images look like AF is sharp out of the box and the kenko adapters all work fine
havent even bothered with doing any MA yet. i will do but its not critical at the moment

Software & Accessories / Re: Issues with Black Rapid?
« on: May 09, 2012, 06:53:48 PM »
I also use the Peak design capture but I have modified my L brackets and capture so that the l brackets can be locked into the capture and keep the rapid strap hooked up (also the L bracket prevents scuffing on the camera body from the carabina of the rapid strap I use a modified Black rapid TR-1 connector to fix the Lbracket to the camera

peak even put some of my mods on their blog link below saves me uploading pics here again ;)
