EOS Bodies - For Stills / Battery for 1D X

Does anyone know if the battery from the 1D IV will work on the 1D X?

Thank you all.

Looks like the Yongnuo YN-622C is what I am looking for.

No.  On the 7D, the popup flash is the transmitter - the 5DIII does not have one.

As always, thank you. 

In that case, any recommendation for a dependable flash transmitter and receiver that won't burn my wallet?  I am not planning to use it often.

I have a 5D3 and a Speedlight 430EX. Is it possible to set up a wireless connection between the camera and flash without adding in separate transmitter and receiver? I had a 7D a while back and I was able to do a wireless set up, but not on the 5D3 for some reasons.

Thank you. I'll leave it alone.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / File name and color space settings in 5D3
« on: December 04, 2012, 11:00:26 PM »
Currently, I have the file name set to 5D3_####. I noticed that whenever I set color space to sRGB, then the file name appears as before. However, whenever I set it to Adobe RGB, the file name would appear as _D3_####. In another word, the first digit turns to _ whenever I set to Adobe RGB.

Does anyone know why and how to correct this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I am seeing big discount, i.e. 5d3 or 1dx, from the unauthorized dealers (sold on Ebay) vs. the authorized dealers (B&H, Adorama, etc.)

What are the differences or consequences if I was to buy from the unauthorized as oppose to the authorized dealers?

The light leak issue was made out to be more of an issue than it really is.  Unless you're taking pictures in pitch black rooms, with the lens cap on or with a flashlight aimed driectly at the top lcd then it won't be an issue.  Even if you do get a camera pre-fix (which is a small piece of tape by the way), you can send it into Canon and they will add the fix.  Don't let a good deal pass you by because of this concern.

Completely understood the light leak issue. I don't think I'll ever run into such situation where it's going to affect my work if the model had such an issue. However, if I am about to spend my hard earned $2-$3K on a camera, I would expect that camera to be as near perfect as it can be.

Just out of curiousity, are you finding a big price difference between the used 5d3's and the new ones?  I've been watching craigslist and it seems like most of the prices for the used bodies are people who bought them for prices below $3,000 and are now trying to make a profit.  With all the deals going on lately you might be better off just buying a new one.

CR posted a link last week to an Ebay deal for $2,799 new. Took a chance and bought it. It's arriving tomorrow morning. Can't wait. Hoping it's a legit deal and not something I have to dispute. Crossing my finger.

I am looking to purchase a used 5D Mark III. I am trying to avoid picking up one that has an issue with light leak. How can I tell from the serial number of the camera that this is a new batch and does not have that problem?

What kinds of things do you photograph?

I am a photo and video enthusiast, so I am learning my way through sport, nature, portrait, and macro photography. Loving every minute of it, btw :)

EOS Bodies / 5D2 & 1D4 for 1DX?

I am contemplating whether or not to swap my beloved 5D2 & 1D4 for the 1DX. Not sure if the 1DX is worth the swap and the right choice. What do you guys think?
