6D Sample Images / Re: Anything shot with a 6D
« on: September 13, 2013, 10:02:55 PM »
Maui sunset on honeymoon - one of the first pics I took with new 6D.  Trying to learn Lightroom as well - if anyone has any tips or advice on the editing, please share!

Lovely shot.

+1...any more? :)

for me there has to be a certainty that I pressed it and it worked.

I would think the mirror/shutter sounds would be more of a certainty than a little click from the shutter button.


+1...agree :)

Technical Support / New 5D3 won't download images
« on: September 13, 2013, 03:34:32 AM »
Hi everyone,

I have a problem with my new 5D3 and I was hoping someone might have some info or solution.

 I bought it new 3 weeks ago. After shooting about 100 shots to test it out over a day, the 5D3 worked fine.I then sent it to the Canon Service Center (Irvine,CA) via the Honolulu office for calibration with my 70-200Lii.

 I got it back 2 weeks later and the 1st time I used it (2 days ago and every time since), I can't download the files to my MacBook Pro (v 10.6.) using the camera to USB cord. EOS Utility opens, recognizes the camera and when I click on download, it seems to initially try to start the download but then after 1 minute (with no downloads), it crashes and closes. I tried using the latest ImageBrowserEX, which can see all the images on the CF card in the camera, but then it also can't  download from my 5D3 and also closes without any images downloaded.

I've downloaded the shots without any problems by putting the Sandisk CF card into my 7D or using my card reader. I've updated the EOS Utility to the latest version and tried several CF cards and different USB cords with the same results. I called Canon Tech support, but they had not heard of this problem and couldn't help me.

The 5D3 firmware version on the camera when I got it back from Irvine  is 1.1.3. I think I saw it was the newest firmware version 1.2.1 before I sent it to Canon. Bummer! Has anyone heard of this problem. I'm taking it into the Honolulu center tomorrow to see if they can help, but they have very limited capability. They said they will update to the newer firmware (which Irvine should have done) to see if that fixes it. It may have to go back to Irvine for a fix. I have 45 days to return it where I purchased it here at a camera store if they can't solve this.

Thanks for any help or advice. I think I will love this camera if it would work correctly.

Here's a couple more from today with my new 5D3.

Here's a couple I took at Avalon with a 60d and Sigma 150-500.  Unfortnately, didn't quite nail the focus on the fireball shot :(

The first one is very impressive with the fireball.

Welcome to cr  :)

+1...I like that fireball shot, too.

Some lovely photo's.  I'm currently using a 7D with 70-200 f2.8 and 100-400 f5.6 at airshows.  Has anyone moved from a 7D to 5D3 for airshow photography, if so how are you finding the switch?  Not a pic from an airshow, but flying in a helicopter next to a spitfire with goactionstations in the UK.

Amazing! 8)

Gee whiz Scott, you keep that up and you might get press-ganged into being their official photographer!

Just got my new 5D3 back from Canon service center calibration 2 days ago and even though it was dusk and getting dark, I tried it out on some ducks and Harry the Heron. Some shots were 6400 ISO or higher. Could never have done that with my 7D.
100-400L, f/7.1 handheld.

Very nice shots Serendipidy.  8)

Went out at dusk 2 days ago with 7D, 100-400L and got some more Harry the Heron with fish shots. Had to use my Better Beamer flash since getting dark. He caught a very large fish and then ran and eventually flew away from me as I tried to get in for a close shot. What kind of gratitude is that? Yesterday, he didn't even show up for work. As a model, he's fired. ;D

f/5.6, 1/200s, ISO 320, handheld.


Do you think that Larry left because of the flash? I shot a Great Heron once with a flash, and it left right after I used my flash.

You might be right. I didn't think of the flash. :)

Love the detail on the grasshopper, albron00!


Using the macro to focus on a flat reflective plane, in this case a rain filled hole in a chunk of granite.  f/6.3

Really cool 8)
