I had an older version of ML on my 60D that didnt do alot for still shooting, so I removed it, but it was quite a neat set-up. all menu's were normal, and there was a seperate menu system for the ML software. Im thinking about adding it again now that it has the advanced Av/Tv/M stuff.... that could be useful for me.

Side note: My 60d had the latest firmware version when I installed ML and I thought I bricked my 60D. A re-install of the latest canon firmware (same version I was already running from factory) fixed it. The M.L. website states this might happen. So I SUGGEST updating your camera to the latest firmware, even if you are already running that version.

Other than that my ML worked great, no issues.

Ive seen some reviews stating the 6D has very bad moire in video and pattern shots. Perhaps a very limited AA filter? wonder if anyone has tested this yet? 6D perhaps a good landscape/studio cam?

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D AF and Focal Plane issues by recomposing
« on: January 14, 2013, 10:12:44 PM »
I wonder if some of the lenses that have strong "field curvature" would cancel out the focus-recompose teqnique.   if your focal plane was shaped like a    "  (  "    for example, tilting the camera would all be on same focal plane. Sorry If i lost you, im sure a few people will see my point.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Canon 6D - Meike grip on ebay for under $40
« on: January 09, 2013, 07:45:06 PM »
I have a meike for my 60D and it seemed ok, except for the reviews saying it shorted out batteries, I checked the internal wiring and it was all fin on mine. However sometimes the thumb wheel on the back of my 60d would stop working with it attached, untill I turned the exposure wheel. No biggee. But shooting a friends wedding, I was against a wall in a kinda cramped area, and was holding the camera a little weird, and gripping the meike grip firlmly, and it all of a sudden, powered my camera down and the batt light was all that was on the top LCD, and it wouldnt tunr on/back off. In about 30 second I had the grip removed and the batt and door back on body only, and I didnt miss a critical shot, but it pissed me off. It did the same thing with my 300mm lens a couple times. I assume the cheap plastic flexes too much when gripping tightly, and loses  contact

Lenses / Re: 2003 vs 2013 17-40/4L

I would bet that the lens is near-identical. Especially the glass. Designing glass takes a ton of time and money, and won't be tweaked, unless a new lens is released. If the early versions had any known electronic or mechanical problems, they would have fixed it in the later ones, Other than that they will be near-Identical. I am kind of eye-balling a 17-40 Myself, I have wanted one for a while

Lenses / Re: A few words on Adorama's customer service
« on: January 07, 2013, 08:52:45 PM »
It is actually quite a reassurance to see someone working for adorama is either A) passionate enough about photography to be on this site, or B) cares enough about their work to look around the sight.

Or perhaps both!  I have had good luck with Adorama, Only problem I ever had was ordering something for a minolta by accident :-P I got click happy I guess

Technical Support / Re: CANON 5D MK II problem

When you get it back it will once again be a totally reliable camera, and you will be glad you sent it in.

I had an old 3mp Digital Elph go bad, out of warranty. The sensor had some kind of problem with it's attachment or something. Canon could not repair it because it was about three years old, but because it was a manufacturing defect, they sent me a refurb 10mp SD770 IS to replace it. That little camera is great.

I can figure that made up for the following out-of-warranty repair of my 20D which cost me a couple of hundred dollars for only a cracked top LCD Screen cover. (Banged it against the gearshift in my truck).  It came back all checked out, cleaned, and good as new.

So send it for service and enjoy it when it comes back in good, reliable shape.

Trying to shoot yourself doing roll-backs? Haha, but 200 bucks for top LCD ouch... I thought repairs were mroe reasonable than that. I was thinking a shutter replacement would be about 250, not a chunk of plastic for 200. Yikes

I've fooled around and touched/cleaned the mirror on my rebel film camera, but havn't even considered touching my 60d. I can crack walnuts with my bare-hands, and give a mean hand-shake, but I stay out of fine areas of my camera. I have cleaned my sensor before, with the special swab and it worked well however. I work in a busy shop with tons of metal/dirt/dust in the air and actually showered and changed into freshly washed clothes not used for work before cleaning my camera, even though it screwed up my daily routine haha. I have issues, I know :-P

if you can gets your hands on a old used fild rebel (mine was 5$ with a 35-80 lens) they could really see how it works up close, and play with shutter speeds and watch the curtain, and play with the aperature opening. I wouldnt let them play with my main body I know that :-P

EOS Bodies / Re: Which is better? 5D MKII or 6D?
« on: January 04, 2013, 12:50:13 PM »
/\ me too. 5dII is cheaper...... used even more so, and IM poor, so, I will prob end up 5dII. how much worse is a 5dII focusing than my 60D, center low light is prob the same, moving subject the 5dII is prob worse, i would assume? any input for me I would love!
