  • I shot over 8000 that day!  However, I was purposefully trying to outrun the buffer to see what the limits where when dealing with SD cards to see if it was really worth the investment in ...
  • I would agree that it is relative, but in the world of zooms up to 500mm, this thing is a featherweight. I think that context was really missing in their statement.
  • I really lost a lot of interest as soon as I read this; "Regardless of the relatively narrow maximum aperture range, this is still a hefty beast of a lens. We had noticeable arm and hand ache after ...
  • Spent the morning at Luke AFB here in AZ to test out some settings for jets and to see how I like the tracking in mechanical and electronic shutter modes The air here in Phoenix today was BAD. The ...
  • That USB 2.0 is killing the transfer speeds. I just did a couple tests with probably the same reader and Lexar card; USB 2.0 port - averaged 20 MB/s for a single large file USB 3.0 port - averaged ...
  • The R6 will be able to autofocus with that setup, just don't expect it to be too fast.  I've used my 2x III with the 100-400L MKII lens on my R5 and got some good shots, but the AF speed is ...
  • When I was using my 7D MKII and 90D, I went though two of the 100-400 L MKI lenses.  I got rid of both of them because they were soft and the CA was horrible.  I picked up a Sigma 100-400C lens to ...
  • Replied in Canon eos r5
    I'll be taking my R5 out tomorrow to a local wildlife preserve to test; Sigma 15-600 C Canon 100-400L MKII with 1.4 and 2x III converters
  • Unique Photo's website says that they have them in stock.  I got my R5 from them, but my grip came from B&H.  Looks like they are also listing the battery as In Stock as well. I've only ordered one ...
  • Thanks!  The ISO performance is amazing, especially considering how much I had to bring up the shadows in those shots and the amount of detail the camera retained, I was really surprised!
  • I have the MP-e65 and did try it out a bit on the R5. Hard to tell much of a difference at anything over 2-3x really. I didn't use the lens much because it has such a short working distance that ...
  • Created discussion thread EOS R5, some macro and reptile shots
    I took my R5 out to a local indoor butterfly aviary here in Phoenix. When I left, the batteries were around 80% capacity (I was running two batteries in the grip). I took just over 2200 shots ...
  • Thanks! In terms of AF, I didn't change much at all.  I set it up mainly how I have my 90D and 5DS. I did program in the dual back-button focus so that the AF-ON button is the main focus method I ...
  • Feel free to move along, why open the post in the first place? I know there are a lot of people waiting with pre-orders from places like Adorama and B&H.  It may be nice for some of those people to ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon R5 with Spider-Eye auto focus
    I had to try it.  I have a lot of jumping spiders in my area, so they are pretty easy to come across.  I found this little female after the R5 came in and decided to see if the Animal Eye AF would ...
  • Created discussion thread R5 was delivered today!
    It's here! The R5 was delivered today. If it lives up to the expectations then I'll be putting my 90D and 5DS on the market. Now to spend a seemingly endless amount of time going through the menus ...
  • I saw that, I wonder what the shutter speed was. The tail rotor shows the most distortion, as it should based on the perspective of the camera
  • It should work.  My R5 is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow, and I have that lens so I do plan on trying it out at some point.
  • Those places will pop up sporadically, but stock will be extremely limited through October and possibly November from what we've already seen. It does look like the body+lens kits do show up at ...
  • None of the Canon cameras with the built-in focus bracketing works with a flash currently.  You may be able to get it to work if using a fast recycle flash with an external power connection, but ...
