What "clean" means is explained better than I could in this post, but yes, it would have embedded audio - but that's no change to the current situation

Check the Lee Filter System.In what way are these filters better than a Cokin P set? I got me that and am pretty happy with it for the occasional shot - rings and mounts can be had for 1 or 2 usd on eBay, and where the <$5 filters will be hazy, the actual Cokin stuff, for a few dozen bucks each, I think is pretty decent. Is this just filter quality or does the Lee system have other advantages?
Re age, always take a photo of a drivers license or a passportThis. You're legally obliged (IANAL but I'm pretty sure) to be able to prove that your models are over 18 at the time of shooting. Also, this seems a little paranoid but it sounded like good advice to me: make sure you never physically touch your models. Many photographers will prop up arms and legs and the head in order to get the right shot ("hold it here, like so"). With erotic shoots, this might be construed to be harassment of some sort. Most models will probably want all the direction you can give 'em, but you only need one 'misunderstanding' for the lawsuit you really do not want.
Also, I'd never ever shoot any models under 18 for a nude / implied nude even with a written parental consent - its just not worth the risk.
I would also try and find canned air without an added bitterant. I have noticed, that will leave a film/cloud behind. Good luckCanned air is not air. I wouldn't ever use it on your sensor, with or without bittering agent. Alternatively, an air compressor delivers much too much punch for your camera and, again, it will probably just move the dust around, rather than removing it. Better cleaning tips have been given above, esp. in the video.
Well...I can always get the house only...but a grip is a must have!There are a lot of third party grips, if you search around you can probably find a few threads here. I think the one in highest regard is the Pixel, less than 100 usd on eBay and reasonably sturdy. Although I wouldn't want to depend on the tripod mount screw, which is why I bought the original, expensive Canon
Read the front page if you haven't already. I'm quite pissed at canon USA for making me buy the wrong goddamn camera based on something you can fix with a firmware update. I'm still accepting paypal and checks this time for my new 5d mkIII fund.I need the money myself for my TS/E-fund but I seriously empathize. I hope you can offload it without too big a loss, but otherwise you still have a far superior burst rate, superior build quality and an extra 30% free reach. And a camera that will make 95% of CR visitors srsly jealous - including me, and I *have* a 5D3.
So it's a hardware wish -- 5D3 folks really shouldn't hold their breath for that, right?I'd love to be able to say 'right you are' and be done with it, but I fear here's some more fuel for the hate brigade
You've missed a few votes, including mine - this is my only REAL gripe about the 5D3. The red illumination thingy is second, but it's not close - I can work around that. This, not so much.
- Where can't we have spot metering at the selected AF point like the 1DX? (Okay, no one really complained about that other than me, but I'm still putting it on this list.)
Shouldn't we keep our feet on the ground here? Or am I trying to reason with a mob in full bloom? :-PAs you might have read earlier in this thread, people have camera's that malfunction because of these rumours. That is a very serious concern and you can't blame anyone but Canon. I'm mostly surprised at how few people have announced their switching to Nikon, but presumedly, the night is still young
How about this one: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/858661-REG/ATOMOS_ATOMNJA002_Ninja_2.htmlI don't know if you'll fare better with this one but I do stand corrected, hdmi recording is apparently much cheaper than since I last checked. Thanks for that
Can anyone explain the particulars here what this means with regard to video with the 5D3.....?It's only relevant for professionals. There are no consumer grade hdmi recorders because it would mean digital video copying on a humungous scale. The cheapest recorders you can find are in the $5K region, I think.
April 2013? You mean April 1st 2013? Because in that case everything is explainedMy thoughts exactly. No way that a software fix gets announced this far ahead, unless there's something fidgety going on.
And what about the minimum shutter in auto ISO? Doesn't need an update (to add at least 1/500, 1/1000) ?Yup, there's that too. Must have!
