Photography Technique / Re: Light Leak with 1Dx / Lee Filters
« on: September 30, 2014, 04:56:20 PM »
Shot with Lee's Big Stopper?  If so, are there any creases, etc. on the gasket that's on the filter?

*Edit* A long exposure shot with the lens cap on would let you know if the body was to blame, if you covered the eyepiece.

Therapeutic reasons, I'm an obsessive-compulsive moaner, and picking fault with Canon is so easy (thanks to the handy hints I get from this forum!) and much more socially acceptable than doing so with your friends.  I don't actually take any photos, but whinging about the lack of a match for Nikon's 14-24, or the antiquated dust-sucking 100-400, instead of my friends behaviour (or dress, their wife, their girlfriend, or both or...), has saved me from a few black eyes.  You have to be careful, though.  When I started going on about Canon's sensor and shadow noise, I quickly picked up the nickname "Dynamic Range" - which was great, I'd never been called "dynamic" before!  8) Anyway, I must have overdone it, I went from being "Dynamic Range" to "Out of Range", nobody wanted to listen to me, so I've had to stop moaning about that and find something else.  Canon haven't failed me in that respect - I have been having a good whinge about the lack of video capabilities in Canon's DSLRs,so much so that I've managed to lose that horrible "Out of Range" tag for the much nicer "4-Ker"...

Hello from Wakefield, Yorkshire.

Why not post this on the Magic Lantern forum?

Glad you've got it sorted!

Graham, I have no experience with the tools you use, I avoid crApple like the plague, but you need to allow for the fact that the satellites from which you are getting the co-ordinates are reporting the time in UTC, ie equivalent to GMT.  As you're in the UK, you need to either remove 1 hour from the time recorded by the camera to allow for BST, or make allowance for that hour somewhere in an option in the software.

Okay, you've a pc, you've got your GPX tracks. The above link is is a tutorial on how to tag photos using GPicSync. You might get enough from it to work out where you're going wrong with Geo Setter, or decide to use GPicSync, it's freeware.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: POLL: What's more important, gps or wifi?
« on: September 19, 2014, 08:49:52 AM »
I don't need either, but both would have uses, if well implemented, in body.

As it is, I do geotag photos if I've been out hiking, which is when I do most of my photography, but I use my Android tablet to generate a GPX track, which I apply to the photos as my first stage of post processing.

If I did need to use wi-fi, there are better ways of doing it than Canon's implementation (DSLR Controller and a cheap wireless router).

So, if well implemented in body, I'd use them. If not, there are good work-arounds available which mean I am NOT going to be wasting money on one of Canon's excessively expensive toys to gain the functionality.

Lighting / Re: Looking for recommendation on light kit

A bit of lateral thinking - as you're worried about reflections on the glass, have you tried a polarising filter?

^^^ Just beat me to it!

Interesting that Chuck Westfall also mentions the 200-400's built in TC.

They got so much right with the 100-400, which is why it still sells so well so many years after its introduction. Maybe Canon are thinking they'll need to push the boat out in engineering a worthy successor? 100-400DO with 1.4xTC?

Unlikely, but... 7dII has f8 focusing...

Well, for zoom I use the 17-40, supplemented by a Samyang 14mm prime...

I think it will work.
I will ask for confirmation tomorrow at Photokina and let you know the results.
It might be worth asking if the new battery (and firmware) would include further measures against third party battery users counterfeiting..

for years canon has not done much (nothing) for the studio/landscape shooter. :(

TS-E 17mm

5. GET RID OF VIDEO FUNCTIONS, that's the domain of video recorders.

Why? As long as they don't hinder stills functions, what's the big deal? Just don't toggle the switch.
I accidentally did just that, yesterday.  Thought I'd somehow broken the camera and it was stuck in Live View. :D First time it's been in video mode since I bought it... ;)

As a cheapskate, there's no way I'm buying a GP-E2, so I use Open GPS Tracker to record a GPX file on my Android tablet's microSD card. I then transfer the GPX file to a folder on my desktop, where I use GPicSync to transfer geotags to CR2s and jpegs from the camera, before moving the tagged Raws into my library and dropboxing the jpegs for whoever I've been hiking with.

I read on Canon's website that the dual pixel AF doesn't work in 1080 60p, can someone confirm that?
If you've read it on Canon's website, what more confirmation do you need?
