The "blinking" on mine is refocusing... each time it achieves focus it "blinks", which for AI Servo is all the time if you're moving at all... which is what it's supposed to do...
Does this have the effect of making the AF point blink on/off very rapidly -- more rapidly than "half-second on, half-second off"?
QuoteThe blinking is irregular on mine, it's a bit more annoying than if it was consistent...That's not good.
Can you describe the irregularity? Is there any pattern to the on/off rate?
Just a question... I have a 5D3 and two 1DX's... I back button focus (which really makes no difference other than I'm VERY conscious of focus...)I would not call baseball stadiums and football stadiums as being horribly lit. They have reasonable lighting, unless the teams are playing in the dark.
I've "roughly" followed this "problem" (I had two 7D's prior which had the same set up... so I really don't understand...) and I can kinda see people's concern... I am normally shooting at night, under horrible lighting at baseball and football stadiums (thus why the 1DX's...)... is there a focusing problem that you're experiencing because the focus points are dark or is there something else that I'm missing?
The issue comes when literally using the camera in the dark with only extremely dim lights.
The fact that the AF points are black is only a part of the problem. The other part is that they are tiny with a thin line around them. I've no issue with the 7D because the large points are easy to see.
I am fine with anything that is lighted.
Just chatted with B&H... they're expecting a shipment on 9/13...
Wonder who's info will turn out to be "correct"....
