All recalibration does is measure the amount of power the battery holds at full charge, obviously as they get older the capacity decreases, this is then used by the camera to report charge levels more accurately.

The best method for recalibration is to fully charge the battery first, then take it off the charger, then put it back on and push the Calibrate/Performance button. The three lights then flash red, as the battery discharges two, then one, then none light, then the recharge cycle starts automatically if the charger is plugged in and the three lights start to go green, first one, then tw,o then when the charge is complete all three.

Thanks :)

My Tamron arrived - first shots with it at the local airport:

(The forum has cropped the right side of the shot off so click on it to view it on my Flickr in full size.)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: What's next, per Sigma Rumors site

A new supertele from Sigma would be the real test of the new global vision line. Making good lenses is one thing, but making lenses on the level of a big white is a whole 'nother story.

How many lenses are sharpest at maximum aperture? Not many, and every MkII Big White.

+1

+1 and reduction in weight :)

It's a typo!

Although I'd love it if Canon was to announce a 50 1.2 L II :)

From a RAW. Not real crazy with the skin tones from RAW. JPG's were solid.

Nice pair of.....Sunglasses ???

Ummmm, I think the skin tones are just fine   ::)

What sunglasses?   ;)

Not my favorite technique as I don't have the tools (proper focus rails), software (I use PS, Helicon and others made me crazy), or patience, but here's one of my more successful attempts that was necessary - it's a Maypop flower - really odd to me, but apparently an extremely common flower/weed 180mm macro @f/8, 1/800s, ISO 800:


This is stunning mackguyver :)

Lenses / Re: 50mm 1.2L not focusing, ring feels stuck??
« on: May 19, 2014, 10:12:06 PM »
Took it to repair shop today, apparently they are very delicate and even a really minor bump will cause the heavy elements to come off the plastic rails they are aligned with. So not built like a take at all!! would be that the flimsy feeling 1.4 is much more tougher inside, but certainly doesn't feel that way.
Bad news it it may need a whole new barrel assembly as its quicker/easier for them to do that but prob more costly in the end.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Cps gave me a 1dx and falling in love
« on: May 19, 2014, 10:10:16 PM »
+1, I've tried several body/body combos like the 5DII and 7D, but none of them come close to my 1D X/5DIII pair.  They are a perfect match 8)

wouldn't a 1Dx/1Dx be the perfect match? :)
I like being able to "remove" the grip from my 1D X every now and then, so the 5DIII works better at that :-), and I LOVE the silent shutter.  In all other ways, the 1D X wins hands down.

+1

Fantastic to have both at the same time :)

50L is a pretty solid lens so a short drop on carpet shouldn't be a major issue - a service should fix it.

Someone was seriously done waiting for the children's parade. Lol, it's kind of describing to how we all feel after waiting in line for an ice cream and coffee, or to take a ride at the amusement parks. We had some fun also though.



Well captured Viggo :)
