There will always be a tool to convert a certain file type to another when it falls too out of favor.

But according to the father of the internet the surest way to keep your images is to print them

Hi Tiderace.
Following your PM to me. I checked, I'm afraid I was misled by your statement that there were 2 firmware versions, you appear to be correct that canon is not offering a firmware update yet, where did you find the information about 2 firmware versions, that is where my confusion starts.
My apologies for misinforming you.

Cheers, Graham.

Software & Accessories / Remote trigger

Hi all. I need to buy a couple of triggers for my wildlife stuff for a 1DX. Needs to be able to take the bad weather i go out in. All its for is wildlife not any studio work. I have seen lots of variants of cheap stuff on ebay and the net. Pocketwizard seems the best but theres so many variations.

thanks

I've tried LR several times and dislike it despite repeated attempts ...I just don't like using it.

In fact, the more I used it, the more I appreciated using Bridge and Photoshop for my relatively low volume 'big pictures' workflow.

I just don't like the whole catalog concept, which is a pretty fundamental sticking point. I'm not convinced either with a non destructive editing approach. In fact I ended up using LR as a glorified RAW converter (which it does well) since my workflow then goes right into PS.

I do quite a lot of large prints (I've just finished a lengthy pre-release review of Epson's new P-800 printer) so the print workflow in LR doesn't cut it either, nor do I use mobile devices (I rarely take a mobile phone with me when out) or need web galleries. I've already tried LR6 and find no use for faces (I don't do people stuff), HDR or its stitching, and LR Mobile still mystifies me as to what I'd ever do with it.

I'm very much not in the LR target market (but still heartily recommend it to people to try).

25Mpx+ AA-filter-less sensor,  with on-chip ADC (lower noise floor)
That´s all. Nothing unreal.

Just completely change their sensor fab process.  That's all.   ;)

They have to do it anyway. Nothing unreal. They do it sooner or later, or they end their business...

Really?  What makes you think that's true?  The sensors in dSLRs and MILCs from many (most? all?) of Canon's competitors use on-die ADCs...and have for some time.  Has Canon lost market share to them?  Is it because of the lack of on-chip ADCs?   

The vast majority of consumers neither know nor care about these issues.  The vast majority of consumers don't push their exposure 4-stops in post, either.

Thanks all for the input and suggestions. I've taken a pass at AFMA-ing my lenses (using Dot Tune). I'll report back when I've taken them out for a spin -- I do hope that this is something that can be solved (user error, AF accuracy, shutter speed)... I really want to like my 7D2. :)

During my careful AFMA process I discovered that dot tune is reliably inaccurate.  All the numbers I got from dot tune were wrong by a substantial amount.

Agreed.  Well, not all of them were off for me, but enough to demonstrate that the 'dot tune' method is unreliable.  There are accurate ways to DIY an AFMA setup, dot tune isn't one of them.

There is one more manufacturer from Hong Kong - Meikon  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Meikonhk/1528885284057597
I use their case for Canon 5DIII with 24-105L
It's not that expensive and very good for snorkeling.
Their cases can be used for diving  as well (but not the case for 5DIII, it has no option for external flash).
 Examples:
