I was shooting our local 4th of July arade which went through dusk I realized that the [lame]viewfinder illumination wasn't working in my 5DMk3
The choice to make a black-box focus-target indicator on the focus screen was throwing me big time in the ever-darker street. Worse, I was getting NO flash of red and a sense of which target was activated. The first thing I can't do anything about. The second: I know the 7D people pt up with it. Had never had or handled one, ever.
Has anyone had their "viewfinder illumination" die? Looks like a trip to Irvine.
Boy I hope they put in a different system on the 5D-whatever-is-past-Mk3.
I have a 7D and have set it so I get the red flash. You must have changed one of your settings. Time to consult your manual as stated by PicaPica.
