Canon General / Re: How do you store your gear?
« on: November 13, 2012, 12:05:13 PM »
Would that storm case be good for storing lenses as opposed to a lens cabinet with a dehumidifier attached?

Yes it detected my kiss x4.
Shoot! Have you checked driver versions between the Win8 machine which recognises your 5D3 and this one? May be uninstall the driver and reinstall? Something must be conflicting with it. I guess you probably already checked to see if there was a conflict showing up on the driver... Sorry cant think of anything else.  :)

Yup on driver conflicts.  It's a real mystery to the canon folks as well.

I have done a clean install of the old version and newest version.  I have uninstalled FOcal as well to see if it was interfering with the EOS utility, but no dice.

I have tried all the USB ports on my machine as well.

Old computer fresh install.  Same deal as the laptop using the same disk

One would assume there would be other bug fixes going in as just upping the version number for some new lens profiles doesn't really make alot of sense.

btw, you'd think they have a smarter way of just adding/modifying lens profiles that don't require waiting for the next release.

Technical Support / EOS Utility/FoCal not recognizing 5D3 in Win8 64-bit

Very weird issue here, but when I connect my 5Dmk3 to my desktop (windows 8 64-bit) it detects that a 5Dmk3 has been connected and I can copy pictures down and it tells me how much battery and card space is left.  However, when I launch EOS Utility (2.12) or FoCal (1.6), neither software registers that the camera is connected to the machine.  Here's where it gets weirder, everything works fine on a laptop with win7 and on another laptop with the same build of windows 8.  I'm using the same usb cables and whatnot. 

So I gave Canon customer support a call (amazing support btw), but they were at a loss for words as to why it wasn't showing up.  Was just wondering if anyone here might have a possible solution or something I could try.

Lenses / Re: EF 24-70 f/4L IS & EF 35 f/2 IS

Correct me if i'm wrong but what's the point of IS in such short focal lengths?

With the release of 24-70 f/4L IS it will be a tough choice for some to decide with the 2.8 non IS version, what do you think?

My bet is the 24-70 will be significantly better optically.  Probably sharper and better colors

I thought your weren't suppose to use super glue anywhere near a lens because the vapor destroys coatings on lens elements?

Figured it out... Can add your gps log, and then you can add all your pictures and then select

Edit --> Automatically Add Location Info --> Save

This will add the gps info to all your pictures... Though LR doesn't seem to pick up on it.

Ah yeah, I should have stated that I was using this on a 550D, so it doesn't have any means to connect to the GP-E2, so I recorded the data in logging mode. 

Software & Accessories / How do I get GPS data into Lightroom

I have a the GP-E2 and i can see my track in the Map utility software from Canon and can export that to Google Earth, but I can't import that into Lightroom 4 because it only supports Tracklog files.  I know nothing about GPS formats and was wondering if anyone knows how I can geotag my pictures in lightroom from my tracks from my GP-E2

Canon General / Re: How many of us are making money out of photography ?

Just started getting serious with photographer last year and I'm already $10k+ in the hole with no income from photography.  Though the photographer at my wedding offered to train me how to do wedding photography and be his second shooter for the busy wedding season coming up.
