Brand New's recent activity

  • Finally vindicated: https://www.usa.canon.com/support/p/rf-70-200mm-f2.8-l-is-usm
  • I posted encountering this issue multiple times, but I seemed to be alone in my problems: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/65636414 Had lots of back and forth with Canon support and sent it in ...
  • I'm not a fan, either.  I'm guessing most people use photo mode over video, so I would have at least preferred the photo mode to be at the end, so you can easily just rotate it to the end instead ...
  • Very odd...that doesn't sound like the same type of freeze I experience.
  • Any error code showing on the back LCD? How often does it freeze? Does it do it when you turn on the camera or just at random times when it's already on? My RF 70-200 2.8 used to freeze my R5 ...
  • It's very strange as that is very much like the issue where many users (myself included) had blurred shots in the series (usually the first pic), which seemed like the IBIS and RF 100-500 IS ...
  • Do you have the latest firmware for both the R5 and the lens too?  There have been several improvements to correct an issue similar to this.
  • Looks like rolling shutter. But not sure what you mean by "doesn't appear with electronic shutter or EFCS or Mechanical shutter"...isn't pre-shot using electronic shutter?
  • You're the first person I've ever heard say the T-Birds and Blues fly slow :-) I'd echo the other comments and say a higher shutter speed would definitely help. The f/10 can be bumped down to f/8 ...
  • I haven't ordered anything big from Adorama in years, so my answer may not reflect the current situation, but before, I never got any lens or camera from them in a bag. What type of bag was it? ...

    My main first posts in this thread debated the emphatical statement that Canon purposefully made more kits than body-only to push body-only users to buy the kit (and enhance Canon profits). That ...
  • I notice when hand-holding my RF100-500 for stills towards the 500mm end.  While the 100-500 has good IS, I don't think that totally accounts for some of the very slow shutter speeds I've been ...

    When did I say it was your fault? I pointed out how people who got theirs were able to do so (getting in quickly with big retailers who consistently get the most stock and have it available on ...

    And if you use my suggestions for the next big camera, I have no doubt you'd get yours shipped on release day and be a happy camper :P  Of course, you never know if the store you're targeting will ...
  • Agreed, the collapse definitely is a huge part, too.  But back when I was able to secure a second 3080, I was surprised by how available stock had become.
  • Replied in Jan 2, 2023
    Okay then. All I'm saying is that if you ordered 6 minutes in (or maybe even 60 minutes in depending on the retailer), instead of 6 hours, you would be enjoying your R7 now. If you look at all the ...

    Not really :-) I did re-iterate my opinion, though, since more people were jumping on the "I didn't get my pre-order yet so Canon must be up to something" bandwagon, though. Until someone has ...
  • I believe a lot of the relief in video card stock has been because the video card manufacturers started building anti-mining tech into their cards, making them less attractive to most of the ...
  • Replied in Jan 2, 2023
    Well I don't want to argue with you (again), but no one knows the allocations that big stores like B&H and Best Buy got, and how many pre-orders they got for body-only and kits. So for people to ...
  • Yeah, these claims seem suspect. Either something is seriously wrong with the camera and it should be returned, there's some usage that's not being explained (like shooting video before the 20 ...
