Bah! And I thought I actually figured a few words in that narration. Never mind...I did. So could you "disclose" the language you wrote in? I thought it was a German base but could not identify the language.Hope this works?
No Spreken le English muy bien. Iz dis goot?
Ha! I was just kidding guys! Happy firmware day!
Le Mock-up maybe?
German would be Sprechen, can't recall how it was said in Dutch but quite often Dutch sounds like horribly misspelled German. Le English sounds like making fun of French (they say it anglais just to make it sound prettier). Muy Bien is normal, go live anywhere within 1000 miles from the south border of USA, and you'll hear that all the time (and many other places too). Iz diz goot is typical slang level of the US English these days.
42....I immediately knew the meaning, but didn't post. For those who don't know, here is a quote from Wikipedia...
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
The number 42 is, in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, "The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything", calculated by an enormous supercomputer over a period of 7.5 million years. Unfortunately no one knows what the question is. Thus, to calculate the Ultimate Question, a special computer the size of a small planet and using organic components was created and named "Earth". This appeared first in the radio play and later in the novelization of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The fourth book in the series, the novel So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish, contains 42 chapters. According to the novel Mostly Harmless, 42 is the street address of Stavromula Beta. In 1994 Adams created the 42 Puzzle, a game based on the number 42.
A quick question tho...The 5D MK II and MK III cannot do this. The feature is being added to the 1D X. You can do it with a Nikon D800.
It works by using the HDMI output, but the output is at reduced resolution in all but the 1D X. This makes direct recording undesirable.
That's incorrect, uncompressed HDMI output will be added to 5D Mark III in April, no plans for 1D X and other cameras yet.
So, after April, 1D C and 5D Mark III are the only two cameras in the Canon DSLR line that are capable of utilising external recorders.
The OP originally asked about recording straight to a laptop, will this be possible with the firmware update to the 5D3, or will it have to be some sort of dedicated external recorder?
Quote from: Canon U.S.A.You shall not alter, modify, disassemble, decompile or otherwise reverse engineer the Software and you also shall not have any third party to do so.
And if someone does, do they get sued or just loose warranty?? And what if someone hacks it in Thailand where USA can't sue? Just asking...
what you do to your camera is your business you only loose your claim to any waranty.
The person that offers modified software/frmware could be sued when that person isn't some anonymous entity on the net.
For what a fool I made of myself, you guys have been great. I'm glad I made the mistake because I never will again.
I'm still confused as to why Canon and other companies don't print onto the lens the actual focal length that will be utilized. I now know that the 18-135mm lens is an 18-135mm lens, but the camera and pictures being produced are not at 18-135mm, its at 29-216mm. Isn't it more "honest" and more relevant to tell the customer what the "actual" focal length(s) the lens will be giving him? Because zoomed out, its not showing 18mm, its showing 29mm. Telling me that it is 29-216mm lens would make more sense because that is what focal lengths are actually being used.
