EOS Bodies / Used 50D, is it worth it?
« on: April 03, 2012, 05:16:20 PM »
What's a reasonable price to pay for a single owner 50d body with 18k on it, with canon grip, and original battery, charger, and all boxes? 

Is $549 too much?

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mk iii Availablility What does it mean?

You should call BH and ask them. 

663
You're shooting in RAW and converting in DPP, right?


664
You should keep the 24-105, 70-200, 580 flash, and 40d; then buy a 27" iMac with a 2tb drive and shoot like mad.  I find most people have cheap $99 monitors to view their photos.  An iMac is a great and easy to buy system, there are better monitors out there for lots of monies, but the iMac package is hard to beat.

Lenses / Re: Whats a good walk around lens to put on a new 5d Mk iii

F1.2 and you pick the focal length. 

666
The only way you will know is to shoot till its dead. See how many shots you get. You should be able to shoot all day on one batter for stills. For video. Go buy 5 more batteries

For video with an IS lens, make that 5 a 7.

EOS Bodies / Re: Best 5d3 custom function AF point selection quick!
« on: April 02, 2012, 10:17:00 PM »
And if you push the multi-controller straight in, if you had moved the center AF point to another position, it brings it right back to the center. 

Yes, and if you push straight in again it goes back the the AF point you were just using.

Also, that includes a little video shooting, but nothing big.

I can get 700+ shots before I'm under 10% on my battery, and I'm still playing in the menus a lot as it's a new camera.  The shot total per charge and percent is shown in the battery info in the menu.

Really, this should be the default, not the option.

Go to the CF menu, second one, custom controls.  Then, go to the one in the right column, at the bottom, called Multi-Controller AF point direct selection.  Its default is off, hit it and select AF point direct selection.  Now focus the camera and move the Multi controller (joy stick), you can select the AF point with out going in to a menu! 

If this has been covered, great, but I just noticed it from a post to something in another thread.


Note, I only use spot AF and have the other modes turned off.

EOS Bodies / Re: Shot wedding with 5DIII, dissapointed in AF
« on: April 02, 2012, 11:30:14 AM »

My other favorite features are pushing the "SET" button and the finger dial to adjust ISO directly in the viewfinder...


What?  I can't seem to achieve this, explain.  Are you truing the quick control dial, or the main dial?

With my 580's light my 5D3 can focus in total darkness, but I only ever use spot AF.

I took this photo in Cuba with the 50D and 35L, wide open of course.
