hooked up 5D MK III + EF 50mm f/1.4
Tried the "Fully Automatic" mode ...
Full auto isn't supported for the 5DIII - you need to be in MSC mode.
I see that Reikan's website ( http://www.reikan.co.uk/focalweb/index.php/why/requirements/#msc) mentions "MSC Mode" & "Manual Mode" ... but my FoCal software only shows the following 4 modes:
1. Fully Automatic
3. Semi Automatic
4. Manual Mode
There is no MSC (Manual Settings Mode) ... the 4th mode (Manual Mode), according to Raikan, is for 'Offline Image Analysis' ("images captured by you and then supplied to the software")
I'm confused ... unfortunately, by the time I sent a message to Reikan it was past 5pm GMT yesterday, (they are closed for the weekend) so I'll have to wait till Monday.
Meanwhile any help from CR members would be most appreciated (please understand that I've never done AFMA before, so everything looks confusing ... Google wasn't much help ... Youtube got me a video (by Bob Keenan) but it is for a one year old version of FoCal and the interface looks totally different from the version I currently have (1.8.1M ... couple of hours after I bought that version they released the 1.9, which I have not yet updated).
I always use Fully Automatic mode for the 1dX, the only thing is that I change the afma-values myself.
Never seen the error you're describing though. Not sure why the LV error message comes up though, you shouldn't be in LV at all, except for when setting up the target...
