EOS Bodies / Where to get 5DIII sensor cleaned?
« on: January 08, 2014, 03:11:27 PM »
I bought my 5Diii about 2 months ago and have used it on one trip to Italy for olive harvesting season and have come to find out there is a dirty spot on the sensor. Not a huge issue, but I'd like to have a perfectly clean sensor and entrust it to the professionals to clean.

Does anyone have any recommends on where to have this done?

Canon? B&H (I hear they do this)? Any good / bad experiences?

Lenses / Lens Rebates This Fall

Anyone have any idea if Canon will again do lens rebates this year? I have a list of lenses I'd love to buy but saving money is always a good thing  ;)

EOS Bodies - For Video / 5DII Sensor Damage
« on: September 12, 2013, 09:22:58 PM »
Sadly, after having my 5DII for over 2 years and using it for stills and video (although I'm a filmmaker, so the video part is favored), I've noticed what appears to be burn in on the sensor.

I just did a video shoot today and noticed the pink spots in the lower right quadrant of the frame in my footage, and am now going through all of my footage to see exactly when the spots started.

Can anyone here confirm this as burn in?

And can Canon fix it (for a price) if it is indeed burn in?

I am turning to CanonRumors because I know I can trust you guys.


Software & Accessories / Custom SLR G1 Strap + C-loop vs. Blackrapid
« on: September 01, 2013, 11:06:06 AM »
Is there anyone who's used both of these straps and can give me some insight? I'm going to pull the trigger on one within a week and would love some input.

I like the actual strap design of the G1 better and like the C-loop better, but have reservations about quality.

And for the Blackrapid, I've heard horror stories about the clamp coming unscrewed.

Any input welcome- thanks!  :)

EOS Bodies / Canon direct store drops 5D body only?
« on: April 17, 2011, 01:59:05 PM »
Was noticing today that Canon has dropped the 5d body only option from their direct store. Could this be a sign of something coming, or just reflective of stock issues due to the ongoing situation in Japan?

Usually (yes I've checked in recent weeks), the bodies will say "out of stock," then recently they said "n/a," now they've disappeared altogether. Refurbished and new.
