Having performed many damage and durability tests in my lab, I will say that NASA would have demanded my resignation if I pulled a "Scientific Test" like that. For them to call it scientific is a affront to engineers and scientists.and they would have had to smash many more lenses and cameras ...
The first rule of a test is that it be repeatable so that a person anywhere can do the same test and have the same results. There is no way this test is repeatable.
Its just a stunt, not a test.
So now the OP edits his/her post to a simple exclamation mark. Elaine would be furious!Maybe out of shame or embarrassment? But I assume it was out of anger about the lack of compassion
According to p.252 of TFM, which I just re-R'd ( ), the default setting for the T3i is also Auto (1/200 - 30 s).I used to have TFM on my phone - I think I should keep it there instead of relying on my memory
I'm not 100% sure, but I do believe 1/200 - 1/60 was the default on my T3i, so there is a chance the OP never touched it.
The thing that's not working correctly is the user - that's you, bub. Your 5DIII is set to Auto, your T3i is set to a 1/200 - 1/60 s limit. You must have used some of those fingers you mention to change that setting on your T3i long ago, and forgotten.
[...]That or a local camera store which rents out if one is nearby - a coworker did that 2 weekends ago and got a phenomenal rate
Good to know about borrowlenses - they have a pickup location near me, so no shipping charges if I ever do need to rent something.
