EOS Bodies / Re: New Firmware Coming Shortly for EOS 5D Mark IV? [CR1]
« Last post by zim on Today at 04:10:56 PM »
I'm hoping that the firmware will bring about a 25% reduction in the price of all Canon products in Europe, availability of the same mail-in rebates that occur in the USA and a removal of the "they'll just have to suck it up" filter that they apply when importing to Europe.

Oh, and any bug fixes that they have identified.

Pretty sure I'll see some of the above.

EOS Bodies / Re: Tips for back button set up

Thank you for clarifying! I bet the 5DIV does the same.

I don't have this option on my 5Ds. Fingers crossed for a firmware update where they adress it.

You are welcome, Larsskv :)
And yes, the 5DIV can do it too, see my second post on this page:
for reference, it's on page 502 of the MarkIV manual.
See attached picture.

Hey, I think I saw you there

and I keep trying to tell my wife that this is an action shot of my son playing volleyball and the Ukranian Princess in the foreground is just coincidence




Yup! That's me! Canon Rebel XSi and EF-S 55-250mm / EF-S 17-85 Daytona Beach 2010... back in the olden days. I like your photos much more. I was just getting started and then got stranded in the purgatory that is the Mojave desert in Nevada.

I´m very happy that so many of you appreciated the video. I really love this feature.

I left my 1DX at work this weekend, but I´m looking forward to see if I can do the same set ut with it.

Most of the time when I use my 5Ds, I use One shot AF and one focus point. Therefore, I set my first back button up with AI servo, case 1 AF mode, and auto 61 AF-point (with center point to initiate AF). I believe this AI Servo set up is the most flexible, and therefore the best pick for the back button, to press when needed.

On the second back button, I picked One shot AF and one focus point, to be used when I shot AI Servo.

One question for you 5DIV users, can you switch permanently between One shot and AI servo with a press of the back button? On my 5Ds, I need to press and hold the back button as long as I need it, and as soon as I release it, it goes back to the ordinary set up.

I can only make it switch while the custom button is pressed. Depress and it goes back to single shot AF. There may be a way to do it but it's beyond me.

Thank you for trying. It would be a great feature. I got the impression that you could do it on the froknowsphoto video, but maybe he was just raving of the feature shown in the video in the link above.

On the 1DXII it is possible to choose between "hold" while button is kept pressed and to change it permanently after button was pressed. You need to press the "info" button when you are in the menu where you choose which function you want to assign to a specific button.

Thank you for clarifying! I bet the 5DIV does the same.

I don't have this option on my 5Ds. Fingers crossed for a firmware update where they adress it.

I would think many people would be looking for a resolution to the compatibility issues using Sigma lenses.

That's a Sigma issue, not a Canon issue. Why would/should Canon help the competition?

Agreed, I'm sure if Canon could stop all third party sales they would.
Wrong!

Canon could stop ALL third party lenses from operating with ease. They could also sue Sigma and Tamron over patent infringement. There is a very good reason why they do not..... Imagine what would happen if they did? Every clerk in every camera store would be telling their customers not to buy Canon because they don't work with the cheaper third party lenses.... Sales of the Rebel line would plummet and that would mean the loss of most of their revenue. (Sales of the 1DX2 and 5D4 are just noise compared to sales of Rebels).  Every person at Canon who was involved in that decision would then be fired, but on the plus side, those executives would get a Christmas fruit basket from the people at Nikon and at Sony each year.......

Where can you do it on the 7DII? In the AF Custom Controls menu all I can do is change the  AF button between one-shot/servo or AF on/off.

When you set either button (AF-ON or *) to 'Metering and AF start', hit the Info button and you can set all the same options as described in this video.

I love this on my 7D2. I have a generic Servo set-up assigned to the * button, and that is so so useful to have.

One more question, Norbr...
if you assign the AF button in this way, does  it switch only when depressed or can you press-and-release and the change sticks until you actively revert it?

I have my 5D4 for more than a week now. I found it was not as sharp as my 6D when 16-35 f/4 was used.

Haven't tested 70-200 and 100-400. Not sure what would happen.

Anyone has any experience to share?

I noticed this as well except comparing with my 5dMKIII.  The image seemed softer as if there was more aggressive noise reduction happening behind the scenes.  Don't get me wrong, the Mark IV was cleaner and I could add sharpening and still retain a cleaner image than the mark III but out of the camera was definitely softer.

You guys need to stop dreaming about the motion jpeg going away.  If it did, I'd be on this camera in a heartbeat but that ain't gonna happen.

W, w, wait. Nakean, I thought you had a 5D Mark IV and compared it to your Mark III. Hmmmm... they always show up. No AFMA either.

The firmware track record seems to involve bug fixes and minor feature changes.  They did add the clean HDMI feature  for the 5DIII a few years ago, but I do not recall other major items for other cameras.  Pretty much what you buy is what you are going to have for the life of the product.
