Animal Kingdom / Re: Show your Bird Portraits

New here but just thought I would share one from today.
Thanks,

Wow! what bird is that?

Fixes a phenomenon, na naaaa na nana. Phenomenon, na nana na.

I know it's a phenomenal camera, but I had no idea it's this phenomenal!

The obfuscation of language!

When I worked in software support, the company would not allow the word "problem" to be used. Every problem was an "issue." We also had many "chats" about these things -- So, how's that CGI issue?

And now it's come to this -- not a problem, not an issue, but a phenomenon.

For me, I'm not bothered enough by any of the problems they're fixing, so my cheap batteries and I will go along unmolested by corporate bickering.
Yup! But you have to admit - phenomenon beats issue or bug hands down...
Even though it still is a bug or a problem...

No Spreken le English muy bien. Iz dis goot?

Ha!  I was just kidding guys!  Happy firmware day!
I did. So could you "disclose" the language you wrote in? I thought it was a German base but could not identify the language.

Le Mock-up maybe?

German would be Sprechen, can't recall how it was said in Dutch but quite often Dutch sounds like horribly misspelled German. Le English sounds like making fun of French (they say it anglais just to make it sound prettier). Muy Bien is normal, go live anywhere within 1000 miles from the south border of USA, and you'll hear that all the time (and many other places too). Iz diz goot is typical slang level of the US English these days.
Bah! And I thought I actually figured a few words in that narration. Never mind...

Oh Wow I thought you meant BUY Canon.. Been There Done That !!

To each their own...
Initially sarcasm loses to brand rhetoric.

Later brand rhetoric loses to sarcasm. (or the other way around - but I said that before didn't I?...)

Eventually, a hammer is a hammer...

No smileys, no sarcasm tags. Just life experience - but then it is just my opinion - one in some over seven billion. And I am just being a speciest - counting humans - not the rest who have lived before or have not been my "tribe"...

15. Removed "support" for 3rd party batteries...

Yes, this is true unfortunately..All my 3rd party batteries no longer register with the camera so i won't know how much charge they have left..this really sucks.
Sorry about that. However, I guess as you have a number of batteries, you must have numbered them in order to keep track of them. I am guessing that you have a "bin" for charged batteries and another for uncharged batteries. Keep them fully charged. Always keep a spare. More depending on the shoot. Shoot till the battery dies. Recharge immediately (or as soon as you possibly can...). I think that all you will miss is the flashing battery indicator... As for me, even though I have only Canon batteries, I seldom pay attention to the indicator when I am in the throes of shooting. I usually look at it as an afterthought...

When you are shooting video if the battery conks out when you are rolling you are very likely to lose the current shot. It can be recovered with voodoo but its not easy.

No audio on the HDMI out makes that feature less useful for recording as well. You'll need to use a good slate and / or roll the recorder and record on internal then try to match the TC in post. Very disappointed that they hyped this feature and failed to mention the NO AUDIO part. Nikon / Sony HDMI out has audio.
Roger, sorry, I don't shoot video so I am not sure how easy or difficult it is to keep track of shooting time. There could be a correlation there, but you would have to accumulate shooting times some place that is referenceable by the battery you are shooting with, and correlate that with the current aggregated time for that battery. Sorry, can't think of any other solution at this time.

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

Moab Utah

4 shot HDR +3/+2/0/-1

So obviously I need to have my eyes checked. I don't see any lively creatures...  ;)
If only it had occurred to me to take some shots to create HDR pictures when I went to the Grand Canyon!

Gary, great picture as usual.

OK, the 5D3 firmware is at version 1.2.1!

YAY! The f8 focus works!

At 100*1.4=140mm it did not seem slow.  However at 400*1.4=560mm it is a bit slow. Need to test it with BIF. I still need to AFMA it. So that is the task for tomorrow. I also need to test the focus with the flash.

let me put it this way.... why the top Pro photographers shoot only with Hassyes and MF cameras ???  8) 8)

I couldn't agree more. That's why all wedding photographers shoot MF...... And wildlife photographers shoot MF because it is so easy to buy and carry MF cameras and lenses with the same reach as the " big whites ".  And that's why all sports photographers use MF, you never see Canons and Nikons at the big games.

P.S. What is the appropriate tag for HUGE SARCASM

It's just  ;D
Safer To write it in English. My tongue in cheek comment confused someone today...

Lenses / Re: EF 100-400 Replacement in 2013? [CR2]
« on: April 30, 2013, 05:26:18 AM »
On a slightly different tack, I was wondering what the old lens is like? I need a zoom of this range for animals and sport moving toward and away and I've missed a few shots with the 300 prime. The prices seem ok, used top quality ones are a decent price. Best buy one before the price changes. New one will be a bit sharper, better I.s and lighter but way more expensive and for what I need the old one seems good enough. So is it any good? If not any alternative zoom? It's the wide range and a zoom I need.
Take a look at some of my pics. I probably need to verify the AFMA one more time...

Anyone know why Canon USA website has 2 links, on the same page,  for what seems to be the same firmware ... see the screen shot below (its the same for Windows or Mac):
One for CF and other for SD
;)

Seriously kidding ;)

Can you select English language option, or is it only in Australian?

Ha ha ha  ;D
...and what about USA? is it in English language or only Amercian? ;D

Not sure if they can read anyway, so why bother. You know, like the game they call football. That's the oddest shape thing I've seen called a ball, most people would name it something else. And you're supposed to carry it around, instead of kicking it. Football?? Why not handtoroid?
Ouch! ... I think you just picked up a fight with a few people  ;D
Yup! and on two fronts :)

Nein, nicht gut!

The pdf that comes with the installer has some assistance. It is on the last page.
