new type of IS that uses the 1DX 3D tracking AF to compensate for an objects motion an not camera motion.
So the IS would be able to help out on moving objects.
I think that is just software ? or I am wrong ? ( lens-camera communication might be a problem ? )

Remove the Grip and look inside the battery compartment of the camera.
There should be the gold plated contacts für the BG.
Now count the kontakt pins on the Bg and look if there are small dents in the contacts in the camera.
The Number of pins and contacts with dents should be identical.
(In some cameras there are more contacts than pins in the Bg)
If one dent is missing then you probably found the Problem.
Also check if springs of the pins on the BG are all pushing them out the same.
There should be 19 Pins and 19 contacts with dents in them.

Has ever someone tried a DR-E4 DC-Coupler with an 12,6 V Voltage Regulator and an external Akku Pack that could be held warm under your cloth ?

I have used the 1Ds3 in temperatures as low as -10°C for times like a 10 hours or so and never had problems beside that the batteries doesn´t give the normal amount of frames and that the came back to live after been warmed up.

Canon General / Re: Which eye do you shoot with?
« on: March 13, 2013, 03:35:23 PM »
Right eye most of the time. Left eye in some close ground macro situations.

When I am in vertical and a flash blocks my view I close the left eye.
( or when there are strong lights blinding the left one )
Most of the other time I leave it open. helps with models and to be aware off actions out of the lenses field of view.
It is a bit complicated at first too see different things with both eyes but it gets better with time.

The AF hit rate is good!
A get a higher percentage of sharp shots than with the 50mm 1.4 both at 2.8
It is super sharp wide open!
Focus is a bit noisy but I would call it fast in a portrait situation.
In a macro situation it gets slower and at 1:2 I switch to MF most of the time.
Beware that it extends quite a bit.

I can show more pictures if you like ?

Technical Support / Re: Random Massive light blasts from 580Exii

I had that with one of my 580EXII it fired a powerfull flash and lost the connection to the camera.
Detached it and but it back on and it was good again.

It was in opticalmastermode an there was definitely no one else using a canon flash.

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D Top Focus Point Light Bleeding Issue

is it a crop from the 15mm fisheye  ?

What do you think I have used ?

At my shot the lens cap is clicked in into two lines of the filter thread. So I think it also counts as attached or not ?

What I want to know is when Canon will start to properly support the needs of its most critical photographers: those who specialize in unfocussed low-light extreme macro shots of the back sides of lens caps. Clearly, this is a market segment that simply will not go ignored!

And here it is!
a low-light extreme macro shot of the back side of a Lens Cap.

I am so so sorry it is in focus ;) :D

I don´t want support. I just wanted to show that in the dark my 350D also shows this, but why should I use the 350 for low light, so it is not that important. I am able to see it up to a quit bright light level but it is not really a "Problem"
I just see this Tread checked my cameras and noticed it ;)

And for the 7D I see those other markings in my 15s ISO100 F1:2,8 shot and wanted to share it ;)
( I never really noticed it before on the 7D. Most of the time it is just a short red flash )

7D it seams like there is just one lighting for all the points.

In AF select mode center point and all inner point marks in bright red

( the grid lines and all other markings are also visible in light red )
