  • Any details from your ownership experience? Would be keen to understand what circumstances it happens in and how to reproduce. Haven't observed anything I would call freezing in 9 months of actual ...
  • That is only if the lens has IS (when pitch/yaw come from lens IS) Here is the full picture from R5 specs R5 IS specifications
  • Replied in IS for R5
    The point about independent control on lens IS and IBIS remains. It would have been very easy to test your theory if you could use lens IS with IBIS off, or only use IBIS for old lenses which had ...
  • It's hard to say for nomoreflakes - his concern sounded more like avoid being a beta tester. Given everything is so well known at this point, there is no chance of that. An informed decision can ...
  • Want has nothing to do with what is realistic today. If this boils down to wanting gear that doesn't exist, yes, sure, wait until it happens. I also want a camera that can read my mind and ...
  • Or he can buy an 8k camera today if he really needs 8k. there are 8k and 12k video cameras around The reason people can wait for years (we know R5 II is not around the corner) is because they don't ...
  • EF-S lenses have EF mount. That's 44mm from sensor plane. R mount is 20mm, M mount is 18mm. So mounting an EF lens on other 2 is possible as long as electronics undertand the data protocol (which ...
  • Can you be specific? Like cameras launched from same generation that are crippled because of them having cheaper hardware, which would obviously be lower end that more expensive ones. And being ...
  • If that wasn't the case, how would the camera on top be on the top?
  • But will it be the last 5D IV rumor?
  • There are always issues to be ironed out. One can always wait. The next camera is often better What are you looking for? Expectations and reality don't always end up matching. A mature 8K platform ...
  • Thanks. Will do some more testing when time permits and see what I observe. To be sure, do you mean vary EV or EC? Indeed. Which is why I asked for an experiment I can repeat. The idea is to keep ...
  • If you start opening screws, everything can be user replaceable. IMO, something is user replacable then it doesn't void the warranty. That's allowed use
  • So I guess we just stick to historical legend and deal as per our comfort and risk, irrespective of how the bodies may be be actually changing or evolving. FWIW, I've shot 5D in rain, and it ...
  • Sounds good... Though Canon would then need to bundle an icon library, or allow us to upload based on some spec. I doubt they would do latter based on how tightly wrapped up their firmware is, but ...
  • It's a nice relative scale, but does it mean anything? In context of question posed in the original post. One is better than the other is nice - but what can we do with either of them :)
  • Wrong? About what? How do you know? You don't inspire any confidence when you throw in maybes and then talk about experiments. Science is not politics, it's not about polling. It's about peer ...
  • AF works in both cases. What are we looking for? How dark are we talking? What result am I looking to replicate?
  • Haven't noticed, but happy to try. Can you suggest some test parameters? What to look for? What makes a pass/fail scenario
  • First, remember how little light went to AF sensors in DSLRs. Most of it went to the VF, with a very small amount deflected to the secondary mirror. Point is, AF sensors are very sensitive. They ...
