Local shop in Pittsburgh (Bernie's) is still waiting on body only cameras - expecting shipment Th or FR. Did pre-order for 4 customers but placed an order for 'a few extra' for walking customers ??

Would anyone run the .CR2 file through DPP first, then import the new (larger) .CR2 file into LR or does running it through DPP turn it into DNG ?

010 by PVC 2012, on Flickr

f2.5 1/1000, ISO 3200

Even with indoor lighting, this lens focuses quickly on a 7D
Depending on distance to subject, the bokeh can be much better than here, I stopped down to 2.5 to compare with my 17-35 (2.8) but can't find my compoaison shot, sorry.


And M, makes no sense at all Sure you could set your limit time, but in AV you could get faster if the light allows it. And in M, the camera has to use higher ISOs because 1/800 F4 just doesn't work in bright sunlight with ISO 200, and its not allowed to use faster times in M. So no gain in picture quality there.

"If the light allows it", then presumably the only 'limitation' is if the light is changing frequently - point taken, but as I read it, in M mode, there are no shutter speed limits, so I STILL only see this as a problem for P mode and Av mode, which requires us to use our judgement in M mode.  Ideal no, but certainly not 'crippling'.


Who needs the facts when we have so many learned opinionators ??

I think you missed the part where all those facts he listed are the same exact facts that we also listed and it is those facts where the problems lie.

Maybe I am mis-reading it then, but it seems the only time this 'minimum shutter speed limit' kicks in is in P or Av mode. While I see Neuro's and jrista's point, to me this seems to be just another small way to distinguish the 1 and 5 series, which should not be unexpected given the price differential.

From the horses mou...erm, manuals...pages:

Pg. 56:
Auto ISO Range: Minimum 100; Maximum 12800

Pg. 125:
ISO Auto

If the ISO speed is set to "A" (Auto), the actual ISO speed to be set will be displayed when you press the shutter button halfway. As indicated below, the ISO speed will be set automatically to suit the shooting mode:

Shooting ModeISO Speed Setting
A+Automatically set within ISO 100 - 12800
P/ Tv/ Av/ MAutomatically set within ISO 100 - 26500 *1
BFixed at ISO 400 *1
With flashFixed at ISO 400 *1 *2 *3

*1: The actual ISO speed range depends on the [Minimum] and [Maximum] settings set in [Auto ISO Range].
*2: If fill flash will result in overexposure, ISO 100 or a higher ISO will be set.
*3: When using bounce flash with an external Speedlite in the <A+> and <P> modes, the ISO speed will automatically be set to ISO 400 - 1600.

As I get page 125, notes 1 and 2 indicate ISO will be set automatically within the full range, or if you have set Auto ISO Range limitations...within the range you have selected. In the case of bounce flash, it defaults to ISO 400 for third-party flashes, defaults to an ISO range of 400-1600 when using canon-brand Speedlight external flash, and WILL automatically select any ISO from 100 on if the camera metering decides the scene will over-expose.

From all that, it appears "Auto ISO" is pretty much indeed COMPLETELY automatic within the FULL RANGE of possible native ISO settings. The only case that seems limited outside of the context of exposure issues is Auto ISO + Flash when using a third party (i.e. non-Speedlite) brand.

Uh oh, I am looking at my email confirmations from B & H for both the 5d3 and 1Dx, there does seem to be a difference between backordered and pre-ordered status, so those with 'backordered' 5d3's may be waiting longer than those with 'pre-ordered' status.   :(

This adapter (thanks Neuro) has now been added to all my adapters.

I re-checked but no 'second' posting of charges yet - only the initial 'hold' with prompt cancellation of the hold.
My original email time was 12:28 AM, 3/2, and mine also states 'backordered' but the customer service rep told me they all say that.

Software & Accessories / WFT-E2 IIa suggestions
« on: March 13, 2012, 02:00:52 PM »
Am going to evaluate the 'old' WFT- E2 IIa next weekend with my 1dIV and before connecting  to my Mac Pro or MacBook Pro wanted to get forum feedback on pitfalls / mistakes to avoid.
My plan is to use my ATT wireless 4G card to allow the camera to send images to either my laptop or maybe my desktop (27" display).  What are people's experiences with wifi networks / transfer times (RAW vs JPEG), etc.  I am planning on displaying photos from an indoor volleyball tournament (to then print/sell), but have not used this hardware before.  Previously I would swap out cards and my assistant would run a slideshow to generate sales, but through CPS I am going to try to go wireless / cardless. 
What problems can I expect??

Followed up with B & H today - they acknowledged they do a credit hold x 48 hrs then reverse the charge.  They did not cancel the order  :), but they would not let me know where I was in the pre-order line, nor when they expected to ship  :(

Got my initial order in very quickly RIGHT after announcement (backorder NOT pre-order screen) and I received a confirmation email AND an email with billing info, AND my CC was actually charged.   
When I looked at my CC statement this week, I saw the original bill posted,BUT a few lines later, I also saw a "credit" reversing the original charge ???   Tried to reach B&H to see what's up, but they are closed today.  Have ordered a few other things from them in the past, but never a pre-order (backorder) item like this. 
Should I be more worried than everyone else ??

Try reading this simple explanation of how to best use the back button AF - very helpful.
