I'd get it fixed. Unless you are itching to get the 2.8 IS II...

I would also vote for a memory card problem.  I haven't had one for many years, but I remember it well!
Yup! Change the card and verify.

Dismounted my 5D3 from tripod and forgot to hold it! Crash! Luckily it fell into soft dry mud and leaves. Missed a rock by a couple of inches! No harm done to the camera or the 24-105. Severe bruising to the ego :) which is on the mend. Every time I dismount the camera, that scene flashes past in my head. I guess I should be fine in a few years time. Neuro said that the head would mend and I am hoping it was not the tripod he was talking about ;)

Say, how did the pilot get the F18 at 45 degrees at tree top level?

Afterburner + the F-18's still-remarkable high-AOA performance ;-)

Wow! Almost looks like a stall!

Some shots from the shoot - the 5D3/70-200 f2.8L II/2X TC combination worked really well - all shot using my gimbal mount too.


Great shots Scott !!!  8)  Nice job!
Yup! Lovely pictures Scott_McPhee. Seeing a picture of a Hunter after 1965! Lovely pictures of the Typhoon and Spitfire too! Say, how did the pilot get the F18 at 45 degrees at tree top level?

Only time I shoot manual is when I turn the selection dial to M -position.
Sometimes I do that - and then (before taking the shot) I turn it to the green rectangle ;)

I turned my 5D3 to the green rectangle for the first time in a year or whatever and wondered why it wouldn't focus! (Backbutton)
Ha ha ha!

@Don Haines - Your ten shot looks pretty awesome.  Would love to see it full sized.

In the winter we get some fairly awesome sunsets but they are hit or miss.  This last December I left work and drove down the road to the State Beach to get some shots of the sunset.  A pair of guys kite surfing seemed to have an uncanny knack of being in the way that I just incorporated them into the shot. 


Perfect one thirds! I love the colours too.

Software & Accessories / Re: How Long Does Your CF Cards Last...
« on: August 04, 2013, 12:51:21 AM »
I have 2 Lexar 32GB Pro 1000x CF. One on each 5D III. Since photography is just my hobby, therefore, no backup for me. It almost 2yrs, no problem so far. No plan to update these at all.

I also have 2 32GB SD from sandisk. One on my RX1 and other will be used on RX100 II. They are 2-3yrs old. No problem so far.
The one I use on the 300D are 8 years and 5 years old and going strong. the older one is a SanDisk 1 GB and the other is a Kingston 2GB. The cards I bought with my 5D3 are just a year and a half old...

You binary guys need to get a room at the Gottfried Leibniz
 Hotel.
It is a coded message. Go on, break it. Give the old grey matter a spin...

There are hex to string converters on the net... ;)

And if you knew binary History you'd understand that I got your inside joke and knew about Mr. Leibnitz. Google is our friend.
Yup google is! Except never believe everything on the net!

Such as most things here.
Yup! Otherwise it would DRive you nuts and tern you crazy ;)

It is the skeleton of an old, dead bird. Rather morbid...

IMO, 'portrait' implies a living subject. 

I agree.

I think his bird just took a tern for the worse. :o
Not to worry. I am sure it was reborn. After all one tern deserves another...
