Just use a real camera that writes to a CF card. OS X thinks it's just an external drive and mounts it to the desktop.
Very nice shot. Well done EldarThanks Click, he´s a handsome little fellow
Sorry, I will post nothing but serious, factual, evidence-based comments from now on...
Thanks Gmw - this makes perfect sense and is something that until today had never crossed my mind. I think it explains much of what I am seeing. Is there anything I can do in order to 'fix' this going forward - would it help if I used blue gels on the flash or added some blue info/noise in post for example?Unfortunately, that's where we step into technique and post-processing. I'm pretty much novice in that regard, so I can't help you. I just understand the science.
There's a good few reviews I've read which mirrors my experiences.I'm on my third 7Dii and I'm still not satisfied with my BIFs while using AI SERVO mode
I've come up from a 500D and I took some satisfying images with that. The only time I manage to get 7Dii quality images, is when I'm shooting macro. For the record, I do macro in manual mode and 'walk into' my subject, therefore the AF system is not active.
My images are not 100% and crisp. Even shots taken in a controlled manner. But this is most evident when shooting birds and smaller, moving subjects. I shot a motorcycle event and the larger subject seems to photograph a helluva lot better than birds for instance.
Those who remember my complaints about the 7Dii will remember me contending that Canon's marketing revolved around wildlife and sports photography. I'm sticking my handup as a birding photographer and asking why does my 7Dii behave this way?
For those wanting to know: My 1st two bodies were returned to Canon. Both were verified by Canon's technical services as being faulty and that they were unable to correct the issue, hence me getting new bodies all the time.
I also got feedback from Canon pros who took the cameras out and got the same issues I did.
I'm praying this is a software issue as hardware problems would be a killer blow for me
If it is a software issue canon could have fixed it with a firmware updade. Which was rumored to come last week and didn't. A hardware issue would be less likely. Also it is strange that no test of the 7D II mentioned problems with AF. Not dpreview not the several youtube experts not any professional magazine I know.
