Walk-in humidor?

IIRC, and if it is similar to the T3i, you have to switch to video, then go to Menu, and then you will find it in there somewhere.
Don't expect to be able to change while you are shooting - I believe you would need a lens with manual aperture control for that (not sure on this one though).

Maybe add some duct tape - as if that is the only thing holding it together.

IIRC you have to download the lens profile into Canons EOS Utility, check the documentation there. Then you can load it into the camera.
It will be applied only to in-camera jpgs. If you shoot Raw, you have to apply correction via the lens profile in you raw software ( Lightroom, DPP etc)

They did well - they offered you something you don't have yet. Clearly they were looking at what you already own.

And yes you should have one - for occasions when you don't want to bring the bulky stuff (dining out with the family), or when you want to shoot fast action and sports.

+1 on the tripod, I'd start there. There are several threads about tripod choices here.
Then think about a CPL filter if you don't already own one.
You'll mostly shoot stopped down, even kit lenses perform decently stopped down. So instead of thinking primarily about better lenses, you should maybe think about a different focal length that you currently don't have.
If you want to upgrade the camera for better IQ, consider the 6D over the 5DmkIII. You don't really need the better AF of the 5D for landscapes.

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.
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.
and they would have had to smash many more lenses and cameras ...

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  ;D

Too bad that the OP killed his/her post, it might have been useful for others


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.
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.

Most Cameras (even the T3i) allow you to set a shutter speed range when using flash - did you check the settings in the custom functions? Sounds like there is no limit set on your 5D3

the new UI looks good, not sure yet if it actually is good.
For the non-recurring pro-users, it feels a bit like the Netflix screw-over a while ago. I hope it works out that we can keep the current pro conditions

Lenses / Re: Who do you recommend for Lens Rental?

Good to know about borrowlenses - they have a pickup location near me, so no shipping charges if I ever do need to rent something.
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
