Software & Accessories / Re: Importing images method...???

Lexar USB3 reader. I've heard horror stories about both import methods, but I like the speed of the USB3.

Very cool!

I use a FujiX10 as a back-up/travel camera for my 5D3, and it is awesome. Small, discrete, cool retro look, terrific image quality. Plus you can pimp it out with a leather half-case and a soft shutter release!

I have the 28-80 that possibly came with my Elan IIE [and whatever happened to eye-controlled AF? I thought it was pretty cool]. It's stamped with 8107536B, which I can't decode.

Sad to say, JDJ, but your deliberate attempt at bad photography is actually kinda cool. The sad, hazy life of Columba livia.

Thanx to all for the replies!

I don't currently carry a flash at all, and the only standard one I own is a 380EX, which actually kinda works with my 5D3, but is possibly just a little dated :-\. But occasionally I think that owning something for some discrete fill or freezing action would be nice. So what are some good options out there these days? [Doesn't have to be Canon, or cheap, so long as it plays well with my 5D3]. Thanx in advance.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Bag suggestions?

I have 2 Think Tank bags, and they are awesome. You may want to visit their site and see if they make something close to what you need.
Try to get a hands-on with your purchase first, tho. I ordered a hiking/photo combo backpack {from Kata, a great brand, too} recently that sounded great, then found that it took 6 men and a boy to get my 5D3/24-105 out of the weird little bottom compartment it had. It's sitting in the basement now....

I use gaffer tape to cover the eyepiece. The Canon rubber cover thingy gets popped out sometimes by the weight of my strap, and anyway I'm afraid I'll lose the eyecup.
An eyepiece shutter would be great, tho; haven't had one of those since the T90.

I used a T90 for years - great camera.

The 16-35 f/2.8 USM II lens has truly horrible hot spots. I'm ordering a Sig 15mm diagonal fisheye for uwa [supposed to be OK for IR] just because of that.

drmikeinpdx, good scientific approach to this issue.

Thanx for posting! Very good advice.

Mifho, the update hasn't bricked my Wasabi Power. It's even showing all the data for it. Don't know about other brands, tho.
