EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: My Canon 5D III went down today :((

Good to know that everything is OK.

Happy shooting!

Thanks JR ;).......how is everything? Buy anything new lately?

My RX100 II arrived yesterday ;D

Returned the 17mm TSE. The lens was excellent but I couldn't justify the price tag for what I shoot ... maybe later.

The 85mm f/1.2L is next on my shopping list  :D

Don't get me wrong, I like the 135L sharpness and AF speed. However, there is something about 85L II - sharpness and bokeh. I ended up return my 135L  and settle with 85L II.

To me, 70-200 f2.8 IS II seems to be a better choice over 135L - except the weight.

I was  cheap, I  picked up a hoya.   it is ok...I  don't do landscapes and when I do portraiture i  don't want the skin color altered at all.

Highly recommend B+W XS-Pro Clear MRC-Nano 007. I see zero effect in IQ - color, contrast, sharpness etc.

You can add or remove  CPL filter on top of clear filter, without worry dust, rock or water hitting the front glass.

I have B+W XS-Pro Clear MRC-Nano 007 Filter on my lenses. It's so clear that you don't even know it on there.

A general note about traveling in China: do not travel in China during the Mid-Autumn festival (first week of October) nor Chinese new-Year (changes with the lunar calendar).

Why? - too many people.


Thanks kaihp

Last 10yrs, I travel to China 3-5 times a year.  I'm well aware of Chinese holidays. That's why we hoping to get the build schedule beginning of 2nd week of Sep.

As a 5D3 owner, I'm so relieved at the outcome!  I love a story with a happy ending!

Yeap...I have two. 5D III is quite awesome camera.

Will there be an EF adapter to fit with current L? I don't want to spend more money on new lenses.

I took over 100 photos yesterday. This is what I get straight out from my camera(JPEG) – over 60% of photos are like this or worst. I haven’t review raw yet.

You guys have any idea?

I’m 15mins away from Canon Service Center in Irvine, CA. My 5D III still under 1yr warranty.

I went home for lunch and transfered all photos to my home PC. Everything seems to be normal now.

Must be something wrong with PC at work >:(

Thanks everyone for the helps.

Dylan

 stupid work computers.  glad your gear is still good.

Thanks man

memory card issues usually do not affect all images, and not the same way.  This could indeed be a camera issue.  It could also be a import issue like a damaged connector.  Don't import thru a cable on the camera to a computer if you can avoid it, its easy to damage the cable connector, and occasionally the camera connector.  Its expensive to fix a camera and card readers are cheap.  Card readers can also cause similar issues, but they can be replaced.

If I recall correctly...someone has posted similar problem. The conclusion was sensor got damaged due to laser stuff in night club.

Again...I don't recall taking my 5D III to night club or playing with laser stuff around 5D III.

I removed the CF from camera this morning and used the card reader at work to transfer the images. I used this card reader before and I didn't have any issues.
