I decided to not take chances... The camera is on the way to Canon Factory Service Center in Irvine,CA. Like 130 miles from home.

If u send ur camera to Canon they will tell u whats wrong with it and propose a price to you. Then u can accept it or refuse it if its too expensive :)

Thanks a lot!  :)

Does anyone knows how much canon charges for cleaning the sensor?

I haven't cleaned the sensor manually, just used the inbuilt sensor cleaning

EOS Bodies / 5D mkIII image "Dust" after impact
« on: October 22, 2012, 05:28:01 AM »
Hi everyone

Last friday I was doing a night photo session and by accident someone push my tripod with mi 5d mkIII on it  :'(, the height of the tripod was about 3-4 feets and the camera landed on concrete... that little mini heart attack... so I check it out...

On/Off... ok
Focus... ok
Shutter... ok

Everything was working ok, so I just take a deep breath, coursed myself and continue shooting, next day I went to the beach and carry the camera with me...

I Just downloaded the pics and noticed on a photo some "dust"... continue checking and all the pics have that same dark spots in the same places... tracking the pictures, these dots appreared just after the impact...

I already did the "clean sensor" several times and the spots are in the same place, shoot with another lenses... the same, even shoot with mirror lock, the dots are there...

Can anyone help me??

Did this happened to someone??

The focus selector button (dont remember the name, its the cross  ;) ) and the light at the same time

Here's a few favorites...

Lots of nice angles and captures, but I'm going to be brutally honest here (and I'm not an hdr hater, in fact I am one of it's biggest supporters) but the tonemapping/microcontrast/psudo-HDR look (I'm guessing processed using Topaz Adjust), is so over the top that it is killing these cool images for me.  It's like you pushed it to 11, and not in a good way.


The images are amazing... but the HDR is over the top

#1: a canon 24-70 mk ii, for the versatility and speed

#2: canon 85 1.2 L ii/my 100mm 2.8 L/canon 135 f2 for extra length, and the bokeh telephoto capabilities.

I use exactly the same,  24-70 and 135  :)

Is that 750 full-sized RAW files?

Yup, Full size raw file

5d all the way  :)

Ok... lets get serious

1) I use Lexar 300x (45 mb/s) and never had a problem

2) My 32 Gb Lexar 300x gives +- 750 shots, It depends of your shooting style speed (that 750 shoots are enough for me)

3) Always carry 2 batteries, its possible that you could make all the wedding with just one, but you never know... IS lens drain batteries

Good Luck!

Hey y'all!, I'm a long time lurker but first time poster.

I'm shooting an indoor wedding in December, and plan to rent a 5D mkIII to complement my 7D and a 40D.

Coming from a 7D is there anything major I should be aware of using the 5Diii?  Tips and/or advice?

Lenses I own:
-the nifty fifty
-Canon 17-55 2.8 IS
-Kiron 105 2.8 Macro

Gear I plan to rent:
Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC
Canon 70-200 2.8L is II  :D
Canon 5D mk III  :D

1. Will I need 60mb/s cards to shoot RAW with the 5Diii, or will 30mb/s suffice?
2. In your experience/opinion, how much speed/capacity do you need? (I'll have (3) 4GB 30mb/s cards, (1)8GB 30mb/s, and hopefully (3) shiny new 16GB 60mb/s cards (all SanDisk Extreme, Ultra, or Extreme III)  Good?  Should I pick up some more? 
3. I have 2 chargers and should have at least (2) batteries per camera.


Best advice:
Be sure to have money to buy one after return it  ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D3 vs. Nikon D600
« on: October 02, 2012, 08:13:48 PM »
I think that it has just taken time for the better sensors to get into camera models that actually get attention: D800 & D600.

Three years ago, the D7000's APS-C sensor was way 'better' than it's competitor, the 7D (in DxOMark-land).  Which was more popular?

And while the geeks are yapping about miniscule differences in sensors, Canon is scooping up even more market share by discounting a four-year camera to undercut sales of the D600 and lock buyers into their system.

+1000  ;)

One more from the 5D3. Love this cam. Shot this down in New Orleans after Hurricane Isaac wiped out this poor guy's house.

What lens/settings? This is one of the nicest photos I've seen on the forums. Brilliant stuff. Great post, whatever you did.

The EXIF says:
ISO 100
f 5.6

Lens: EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM
