Don't you know:
  • Nikonrumors: Website where people whine about Nikon and threaten to switch to Canon
  • Canonrumors: Website where people whine about Canon and threaten to switch to Nikon

 :) ::) one could be tempted to start a competition about who's crying on a higher level...

Canon whiners whine faster and even about the most obscure lit isues.
Nikon whiners whine about a more broader range of isues.

could it be that the yellowish cam has the WB SHIFT enabeled?

eos utility can probably be downloaded via a torrentsite.

Just to be clear are both camera's running the same settings&picturestyle and is the high light tone optimiser off etc...
And when you try the auto white balance is the efect the same?

wohoooo ;D 8) :P

That is why "most" shoot raw. so they can adjust everything in post.
Same is true for video if raw is a option then there is no need for cinestyles.

for video geting the picture right is even more inportant than shooting JPG because of the video codec compression.
compare a jpg at 7MB/picture with video 5MB/sec

If they had to criple the body this much (5,6 crosstype,  only sd  ,97% viewfinder..etc)
Then the sensor probably would have been the succesor to the 18Mpx 1dx sensor they had to drop due to resent HiGH Mpx and dynamic range competition.
This would mean that this little camera could have the potentional to make briliant pictures/movies. in the later case you have to manual focus anyway  ;)

You better get the vest+support arm with the glidecam +1500,-euro if you want to take shots longer than 30sec.

With your budget a decent camcorder is out of the question.
I would wait if the 7dmarkII is anounched or the "budget fullframe" they will likely offer the best and newest features for a around 2000,- priceticket.

I'm hoping for 24Mp aps-h so the aps-c sensor will revert to the xxd,xxxd,xxxxd series
The 1D-cinema uses aps-h crop for 4k video so the 7DII could be the baby cinema without the 4k.

In many ways the 7d was the more video orientated camera than the 5dII was.

canon just released a new 18Mp aps-c sensor with Phase AF on chip, wouldn't it be more logic if they used that chip in all the new aps-c camera's. just as they did with the original 7d 18Mp sensor.

If they had the aps-c 24Mp Phase AF on chip ready why not use it in the 650d?


Did you try removing the battery from camera as they mentioned in instructions

removing the battery helped my burstrate!

My understanding was that the limitation is on the file size, not the total length of the recording. In other words, when the time hits 29:59, the camera will open a new file and keep on recording into the new file without interruption. If you record a 90 minute play, you hit 'Record' once at the beginning, stop at the end, and you have three files with no gaps.

That is wrong.
the 29:59 limit is because of a EU tax limit
Because of the FAT32 formating system of the camera files are limited to 4GB files
depending on the data rate of your codec the 5dmarkIII will now produce multiple 4GB files untill it reaches the 29:59 limit.

on the 7D a 4GB file results in about 12minutes files

I think it's around 4,9% extra tax

Canon EOS 60D
I tested 2 bodies and found no issue once I placed the folded black fabric over the viewfinder. No change with backlight on.

Canon EOS 7D
I tested 2 bodies and found no issue once I placed the folded black fabric over the viewfinder.  No change with backlight on.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II
I tested the one body I have in stock. This camera exhibited the same issue as the 5D Mark III in direct sunlight, however the backlight didn’t affect exposure. I also did the flashlight test that is mentioned below and nothing changed in exposure.

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV – Body #1
There was an ever so slight shift in exposure with the viewfinder cover down.  10 seconds out of the sun, 8 seconds in the sun. I stuffed the viewfinder with the black fabric and there was no change. The variance in exposure went away if I wrapped the LCD with the black fabric and only left enough space to see the exposure number. No change with backlight on.

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV – Body #2
This body exhibited no movement in exposure. No change with backlight on.


Could someone check which side is the LED (inside the LCD) on all the tested bodies? In the 5D3, the LED is on the left side, closer to the metering sensor. Could it be that all the other bodies have the LED on the right side? Just a hyphothesis. You could check the LED position by looking sideways into the LCD.

that was what i was suggesting. on my 7d the amber backlightled is on the right side.
So it seems they made a placement error.
It may be a small to nonexistent problem but still should be easy to fix for canon.

 could it be that they switched the amber backlight position from the right(7d) to the left next to the mirorbox?

when you look at the lcd at an angle you can make out the led.
i believe that one side of the lcd is mirrored off to reflect the backlight back.
the ledside isn't so sunlight can sliptrough and the ledlight itself will have a more profound effect when placed next to the mirror box

can someone check the position of the backlight led on the markIII?
