Canon General / Re: 5d Classic Problem (??)
« on: August 17, 2011, 04:18:00 AM »
Hey,

So I've had my 5d for about a year.  I bought it last year used and everythings been working out great.  Great camera and everything.  Until recently (last Saturday) I haven't had any problems with it.  It now gives me about 5 seconds before a photo appears on the screen itself after it had been taken. 

If I take a burst of photo, it takes forever to process and I cannot shoot whilst it is thinking.  I've tried a myriad of things, switching cards, taking the grip off, swapping batteries, different lenses, different exposure settings (its not noise reduction or long exposure NR or anything like that). 

Any ideas of what I can do?  I have a wedding to shoot Saturday and need to get crackin' on ideas of things to do.  I'd love to upgrade to a 5d2 but the money is a problem, don't have enough of it.  I wanted to use my 5d til the 5d3 came out but I don't think thats going to be in my waiting time frame.

Help me out here?  If you know something, that would be much appreciated.  Thank you.

Kurt

Hi Kurt,

I had a similar problem.  Here's what I did to fix it.  I had to disable the "Add original decision data"

In Custom Functions, number 20.  Set it to off.

This may/may not work for you, but it's worth a shot.

Works just like it always has.  Thank you a ton, not sure why it was acting up due to that, it has always been on, not sure what it is even adding. Thanks for the help.

Hey thanks Paul,

Tried shooting on various cards as well, a old old transcend to a 16gb extreme 4 card.  I looked and there was no option to reset factory default, I know where it would be on any other camera.  Firmware is 1.1.1 so totally updated.  Tried new fresh batteries, different sets, canon batteries nonetheless.  I should have about 70k shots on it (roughly). 

Everythings been pretty similar over the last year that i've had it, no major changes that would have brought it on. I could buy a 7d to tide me over til 5d3 comes around.  I'm not a big fan of crop sensors since I've made the jump to FF. 

Any other thoughts?

Hm, every other time regardless of conditions it was nearly instant (maybe a second delay or less).  Maybe the camera is just old?

Think I should just upgrade and drop my 5d?

All of those images you're showing are super crisp.  Love the attention to detail, what body are you shooting on?

EOS Bodies / Re: Short Film Shot on T2i

Love this video, the way it was cut and shot was very visually interesting.  I like panning bed shots to be honest.  Was a little slow at a few parts but the overall feel was consistent.  I do believe the credits could have been done better, same sort of style as the intro credits, something more visually appealing.

Love it though.  Will be waiting for more videos.

+1 for transcend.

Sandisk is good, the price is high.  I bought a 16gb 400x card from Transcend for around 45 bucks.  Hasn't failed and I can unload a full card with a no name card reader in about 5 minutes.

I did have an older transcend card (x133) that had seen some heavy use from a bunch of different cameras pull an err99 on me.  Only lost about 30-40 photos ( I believe).  Rest of the card was untouched.

Canon General / Canon Loyalty Program
« on: June 02, 2011, 03:16:31 PM »
Does anyone know about the canon loyalty program?  I haven't been able to find out any information about this program.  I have a 5d that I've been using for almost a year now, and I'd like to replace it with the 5d2 sometime in the future, but not sure if I can upgrade. 

Does this program apply only for P&S or does it include every camera?  Thanks!

Bought this bag for shooting a wedding in Cancun, best decision I made.  Carried my 50mm, 85, 17-35 and 70-200 in it.  (70-200) in bag in top compartment.  Has plenty of space for cards and filters and whatnot.  Comfortable even with carrying a 7lb tripod on the straps on back.  Hip straps make it comfortable as well for longer journeys.
