The IS starts only when you half press the shutter button and stops about 2 seconds after you release it. That is almost certainly what you are hearing.

Its a good lens for BIF, fast AF and reasonably sharp. I had one and sold it in favor of the 100-400mmL. The issue I had was its length, its a great lens for the price. It is fairly long, and does not fit in a lot of camera bags, while the 100-400mmL is actually shorter when collapsed than a 70-200mmL MK II. A 70-200 with 2X TC is cumbersome to hold, but can produce excellent images.
Do you still have the 100-400mmL and/or the 70-200 with 2X TC?
He is referring to the post about a 24 inch panel. Nothing to do with the original topic on a 30 inch monitor.Haven't heard of this "EQD" brand. Would it be just as good as a Dell IPS 24", which often is on sale as well?
Where are you seeing EQD? I'm seeing Monoprice-branded displays. I assume they use LG panels.
Yep I'm using the new version already.I should elaborate, I have it installed on two computers, and find the function crashes frequently on one I seldom use, but works fine on my laptop which is what I normally use. Both are windows 7 64 bit OS with 4GB memory. I've never bothered to find out why. The one it crashes on is a older Dell, but upgraded with a SSD.Crazy. Every time I tried it the program would crash and I would have to manually restore my settings. Maybe I'll uninstall it, reboot, and re-install again.But it doesnt work with the 5DIII (reikan af algorythm).
Works just fine with my 5D MK III!
Be sure to use the new version, they fixed those crashes now.
I've had a 40D that has literally gone unused since I bought it shortly after the 40D was made available.
I can already hear all the WHY's?
Well, I've been shooting film up until January of this year. I had several film cameras including a 4 x 5 so the 40D wasn't being used. I've been slowly selling off my film camera gear. Before coming across this post, I was considering selling the 40D.
Maybe I should hold onto it.
But it doesnt work with the 5DIII (reikan af algorythm).
Atomos page says Canon won't ship the firmware until May.People claim to be already seeing it in new 5D MK III's.
Its built into the Li-on battery, its in all of them. The electronics shuts off power to the camera with a safety margin. Without that, li-on batteries would die the first time they were fully discharged. Its a good idea to store them partially charged.
I'm curious if Canon makes the camera shut off at a certain voltage, above the trigger point for the protection circuit in the LiIon. Seems like it would be easy and allow you to run the battery until the camera shuts off.
I'm still a faithful 40D user. Well, I should say my assistant is, as it serves as a backup body for me and he shoots with it when I don't have it on me. I'll put an L lens or a 50 1.4 on it and it still pumps out beautiful images.
Thanks for the replies. Would it be risky to use my other Canon battery in it as the original 6D battery charges? I want to use it right awayYou can use the old battery safely, but there have been a lot of compatability issues noted while trying to charge the old battery in a new charger. If that does not work, ask Canon to replace your old batteries.
