EOS Bodies / Re: 6D HDR problem
« on: January 04, 2015, 08:00:43 AM »
Thanks all, for your input.  However, I have hundreds of HDR RAW shots, shot with my 6D.  It was quite convenient and I post-processed in DPP.  So clearly firmware is the problem.  I am emailing with Canon on this but so far they are denying that it happened.

Can anyone advise how I can revert to the earlier firmware?

BTW, I purchased my 6D 2/28/2013.

Thanks,
John
Can you tell us the current and the previous firmware of your 6D?

Page 155 in the 6D instruction manual, page 74 in the 6D basic instruction manual.  Both manuals list the cautions and restrictions shooting HDR.  I don't believe RAW was ever available, it records in JPG even if RAW is your default mode.

Just checked it out on my 6D with the new 1.1.6 firmware.  HDR automatically switches to JPG even though it was RAW in other SCN modes.  The LCD screen shows JPG as well.  As you noticed you cannot change it back to RAW via the first MENU screen while in HDR mode; you can only change the JPG level.
Exactly! And it is the same for the result with 5D3. The main difference with 5D3 is you get to keep the intermediate raw files to process later.

So the best HDR is to ignore this mode completely, bracket say 5 shots and process them later.

24-70 2.8 II or 16-35 f/4 IS. It is a tough decision but I think 24-70 2.8 wins...

A landscape is not only something that demands an UWA lens...

Check the following dpreview thread:

It does not clarify though what was happening in earlier firmware versions. By the way what firmware do you use?

Also, you cannot have the intermediate photos saved in 6D. In addition, the result is always a JPG (Even in 5D3) so there is no big deal except from the fact that you have to switch from raw to jpg and back every time you need to take an on camera hdr picture.

I was curious about this, also so I went to look  The link throws a 404 error.  Can you check the link and repost?

Thanks!

Ooops sorry! I must have missed something in copy paste. I will search again and report back.

It's text follows:

My guess is that you have raw selected. Set it to jpg and it will not be grayed out.

More info follows:
IMPORTANT

    If you shoot a moving subject, the subjects movement will leave afterimages.
    The color gradation of the sky or white walls may not be reproduced correctly. Irregular colors or noise may appear.
    HDR shooting under fluorescent or LED lighting may result in unnatural color reproduction of the illuminated areas.

REFERENCE

    Only the merged HDR image will be saved. The three images used to produce the merged HDR image will not be saved.
    You cannot select RAW and RAW+JPEG. The HDR mode cannot be set if RAW or RAW+JPEG is set.
    If you set AEB, white balance bracketing, Multi Shot Noise Reduction, multiple shot exposures or if you shoot bulb exposures or a movie, HDR mode cannot be set.
    Flash will not fire during HDR shooting.
    HDR shooting is not possible with ISO expansion. (HDR shooting is possible within the range of ISO 100 - 25600.)
    Since HDR shooting merges the images, it will take a longer time to record the HDR image to the card than with normal shooting. During the processing of the images, "buSY" will be displayed in the viewfinder and on the LCD panel and you cannot take another picture until the processing is completed.
    In HDR mode, the options grayed out in the camera menu cannot be set. Note that when you set HDR mode, the Auto Lighting Optimizer, highlight tone priority, and exposure simulation will be set to [Disable] before shooting.

Since it is certain that you are the same chris_overseas from ML forum allow me to thank you for your work on 5D3 1.2.3 port   :)

hello,

FYI: I came across the following:

There is NOTHING at Canon's site though...

Lenses / Re: What is your favorite lens/camera combo in your camerabag?
« on: January 01, 2015, 10:22:31 PM »
Looks like I am losing my religion.
The sony a6000 is on its way and with the adapter...who knows, I'll explore.
S___, why did Canon miss their chance?
Is there somebody out there who'd think that it would make sense to wait for the Canon version of the technically quite mature a6000?
All the EF lenses I have are compatible with the Sony with an adapter.
Allahu akbar.
I'll get me a Sony!

That's #1 mistake newbies made. Tiny mirrorless body with adapter + EF lenses  ::)

You might as well sell all your EF and stick with their native.
A6000 with Canon lenses is indeed funny! What is the purpose of a6000? To save 1-5% in total equipment weight? (or size)  ;D ;D ;D

What is the use of Sony a6000 with a canon adapter (and a canon lens)? The total size and weight is almost the same as with a Canon camera!

This defeats its purpose of portability!

To be (1Dx) or NOT to be (1DXII) that is the question ...  ;D ;D ;D

« on: December 31, 2014, 09:51:29 AM »
I agree ... partially: Personally, I'd be happy with a 22 MP (not MB) 5DIV if it came with significantly better dynamic range and high iso (and not another incremental crawl such as what we got with 5DIII).

That and 2 fps more (with the new AF system of course  ;D )

Canon General / Re: What do you copy from your camera card?
« on: December 31, 2014, 09:43:49 AM »
If you move the card between cameras, then you should delete it first, or info about image numbers, etc will be transferred to images with the second cameras.  The camera will recreate it, and start numbering images from 0001.
 
We often see posts from users who bought a new camera, and popped in the card from their old camera.  They see image 7033 or some high number appear, and think they bought a used camera.  Some users do not move cards between cameras in order to prevent the issue.
Me included!  :-[  (I saw  500+)

But, many shots later I installed ML and saw the shutter count being around  100.

So it was new. No harm done  ;D

It makes no sense to replace the 5D3 with 52 MP body based on the 7D2 sensor. 

The 5D3 is a great wedding/event/portrait camera and sometime sports body.  While I don't shoot professionally, this is me.  I'm not looking for more resolution, especially if it means a step backwards in high ISO performance.  If anything, I'd like the 5D4 to incorporate the 7D2 sensor technology with larger, full-frame pixels for even better low light performance.  AF during video would be a nice plus (even thought video is a more distant interest for me).

The 5D4 should also include a bump in FPS and buffer performance.  I don't see this happening with 52 MP.  All I see with 52 MP is HUGE RAW files, maybe 90-100 MB each.  That's a lot for in-camera crunching and recording to cards.

I'll look at a 20 MP 5D4 with a nice bump in low light performance long before considering a 52 MP body.  I still think the 52 MP body has a different audience than those who currently buy the 5D line.  It actually makes more sense to put the 52 MP in the 6D2.  But, it makes the most sense to spawn a new line of bodies for the high MP sensor.
+100000 Finally someone sensible!  :)

It would be stupid to make a 52Mp 5DIV.  22 and 52 Mp cover people with different needs (speed &  low light/resolution)

It would be much better to do it like Nikon a top Mp model and a medium Mp flexible one.

Just my thoughts...
