Hi! I just bought a 5D Mark III... When I rotate quick control dial, the SET button in the middle wiggles a bit with it. I mean the SET button seems to get stuck to the dial and moves a bit with it. I watched a few clips on YouTube in which the SET button appeared steady, unlike mine. I wonder whether anybody else has got the same issue. It may seem a mediocre problem; but you expect smooth dials and buttons when you buy an expensive camera like this. Thanks, Sam

Hi So I managed to get a display model 5d3 body for $1700 + tax from a local popular retailer. Only the body and battery, nothing else. It was handled a lot as a display, the base and LCD is scratched, and there is a hairline crack by the strap connector. The shutter count is about 20,000. It does come with the standard 1 yr warranty from Canon. The question is, should I keep it or return it and get a 6D for around the same price? Thanks

Does anyone use a third party hotshoe flash for Canon EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 7D, EOS 70D? I want to buy a universal external hotshoe flash for Canon EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 7D, and EOS 70D. I don't intend to buy Canon flashes because of little budget. I will use the flash for most landscape photography. Thanks for any suggestion!

I have a Canon EOS5D MkIII and (would) like to do (among other things) food, insect and flower photography. I've a number of zoom and prime lenses (including the EF 50mm f/1.4) but no macro lens. 1. I'm potentially looking at the Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro but I'm confused on a number of points. Firstly, looking at the spec the lens is described as producing 0.5X shots but reading the product description from one trader that states "Optional Converter for 1:1 Macro". Is this a separate...

Apologies for this - I would do the experiment myself but don't have my camera with me... I usually use C1,C2 & C3 for all my shooting, but one of my C modes is given over to Manual everything, with various enhancements applied and stored. I'd like to free up that C mode for a different type of shooting, and my question is this: If I make adjustments to various settings in the camera's default 'Manual' exposure mode, (e.g. AF settings), are those adjustments applied to all other exposure...

I love my 5D3 but the lack of wireless is really bugging me now. I looked-up WFT-E7A wireless transfer but its SO EXPENSIVE:-O Wondering if there is any low cost solution in the market (i.e. without breaking the bank :-) ) Thanks

I just updated the 5d3 with an extra card, so that it now has 2 cards installed. I set up the cards so they work as backup (the 5d saves the same image to both cards) My issue is when plugging the 5d into the usb and eos utility opens and auto-imports new images: it imports each image twice (once from each card, and with unique file-names, as if it was 2 different images) Is there some way I can change this behavior, such that eos utility will import only from one card automatically and skip...
