EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 5dmk2 - weak usb connection - options?
« on: November 30, 2013, 08:49:25 AM »

So I shoot most of my work tethered to a laptop. Unfortunately the usb connector on the camera has gotten loose, it still works fine if the camera is steady on a tripod and not moving at all. But for situations where I like to move the camera a bit around in between shots i often loose my connections.

My options as I see it is.

1) Get it repaired, does anyone know what this costs? and time. I am based on the Canadian west coast if that makes any difference.
2) Get the wifi grip, i can then tether with wifi, or its built in usb or ethernet ports, correct?. Currently watching a few on ebay to see what they go for.
3) buy used mk2 or new 6d. Will have to hold back on this purchase till end of january. my mk2 does have around 110000 clicks so it is getting old.

If you have any knowledge, advice or thoughts regarding my situation it would be much appreciated.

Dear Jens.

Surapon, I love your ideas! Very practical, very down to earth. You are the true engineer! Much respect.

Cool shot! I thought I was going to see a plane. Pleasantly suprised.
Yes! I was expecting a WW2 plane :)

Nice shot though!

There are a number of times I do not reply on threads. That is because silence is golden. This thread and many others fall in that space. The less I say, the more I learn. Not quite sure it is all that simple to explain the concept.  :P

Here is one from my new 85 1.2 before AFMA,turns out it needs +7 on the 1dx and +4 on my 5dmk3.

Aye! That is one bonnie lass! Eyes like that should be unlawful on a beautiful woman - removes all sense from a man's head!  ;)

Love to see you using the 85L, born, that's my next piece of glass, lord willin'...

Question - how are you using that beast? One shot/focus & recompose or One shot/select AF point & don't move or AI Servo and let the camera deal with any movement?
Hey old shooter :-) thank's she is a bonnie lass i will give you that lol :).I was just using one shot spot AF but this was the 1st time i used it so will take a bit of getting used too,i do use back button af also not sure if this would make any difference :/.
Yeah yeah. So this is to all the Scots on this forum and this is not a photography question. After you (Scots) get your independence, will the inhabitants of planet Earth need to trudge to Scotland to get Scotch Whisky? Just asking... ;)

Been out shooting awhile, here is a recent favorite

Great shot! Well framed! Every part of the picture has a story from the referee on the right right up to the canon shooter who is caught up in the action and not shooting! Perfect!

Here's a wildflower that grew near the place we stay in Langkawi.  Shot with a 100mm F2.8 macro USM non-L.

Absolutely fantastic!

When I look at the moonlight scenes painted by some of the old great masters, they often give an almost turquoise tint to the scene.
May be you could try split toning highlights to blue to give it a bluish haze and cut the yellow. You probably already did that :P

Lovely picture Sporgon.
Lovely! Like a sunset with stars!


Thanks Click, rpt and serendipity ! Appreciated.

This is my fifth attempt at trying to get a moon light picture worth looking at. I have never taken photos at night before with natural light and have had two surprises: one, I can't  believe how fast the stars move, and secondly how bright the moon is when full. At ISO 160 it requires an EV of about 13 to avoid blow out.   Rpt, you're quite right, it is difficult to make a moon light scene not just look like an underexposed sunset !
Your pic has inspired me. The next time we go out to a less light polluted area I am going to try that!

rpt, I'll be on my way tomorrow, what's the address and what airport will you pick me up from?  ;)

Oops, I forgot my friend wants me to go with him when he buys his 1Dx on Friday.  He thinks his models may be a little more cooperative when they see his fancy new camera.  Myself I'd rather stick with wildlife - more predictable and dependable and generally cooperative.  Not to mention beauty, as the previous posts prove.  My wife agrees with this. :)

Welcome! I live 5 min drive from the airport and can pick you up. There is just one airport in Pune. [I guess you noticed I did not pass on the address ;) ]

I agree about sticking with wildlife too. Btw, I really like your pictures :)
