  • My bet is you "assigned" it but did not save it by using the Wrench#5 "Register Settings" to one of the Custom Modes. If you don't register the saved settings to C1-2 or 3, the camera will default ...
  • Have to laugh at this! (No disrespect meant Abbott :) ) The bleeding manual is what 900-plus pages? I have had my two R5 bodies quite some time now . . . 1-2 years. And there are still settings I ...
  • While my experience with Topaz is limited, it seems like many other packages in that the user can choose how much to de-noise and how much to sharpen, from zilch to "way too much!" The names given ...
  • Ahhh . . . I see now. Thanks for the explanation.
  • Would someone care to explain this "pre-burst" feature as I do not understand it. The camera can not be prescient, after all? And that is what it sort of sounds like. How can it start to record ...
  • My take on the great grip/no grip debate . . . . I've used a grip. I've used lenses as large as an 800/5.6 Nikkor and a 600/4 Canon. The grip issue never arose with these lenses. I have no idea ...
  • Well, while I will not be trading one of my R5 bodies in on an R7, I am considering preordering an R7. Why? That is a question I find hard to answer. "Because I can?" "A new toy?" Maybe. I ...
  • How do you do that? Amazon and keep sending 'em back? A camera store opening multiple boxes for you? In my, admittedly limited, world, trying multiple copies is just not something that can be done.
  • Not sure it can help at this stage but Duade Paton has released a video of his expectations for the R7. Link . I remain undecided as to whether to preorder one to complement my pair of R5 bodies. T ...
  • All this verbosity will soon become moot when a couple of birders get their hands on an R7 and do a shoot out. What I expect will be the outfall will be: 1/ The differences between an R5 and R7 on ...
  • While I appreciate the features of the R7, specifically the "more pixels per duck" than the R5, I do not see offloading either of my two R5 bodies for an R7. Now, had I but a single R5, I might ...
  • Yep. In a nutshell, that's what I wanted. Of course it would NOT cost 1499USD, but that's OK. As it is, I am undecided about getting an R7 to complement my R5 bodies. Might wait to see about the ...
  • No big deal but as one considering an APSC R7 to use for birds, I would have preferred it to have the same layout as my R5 bodies as much as possible. I don't quite get that doing so would somehow ...
  • I own two R5 bodies at present. Birds are about my only real interest for a "real" camera as opposed to a smart phone. Prior to owning the EOS R (since sold) I have used crop bodies. (D60, 20D, 40D) ...
  • Personally, I love getting head shots of birds! Even small birds! Maybe, especially of small birds. So, I find the RF800 f/11 is my most used lens. Almost always with a tube on it to get around ...
  • I am a former Nikon owner. Back in the day my birding lens was the ED800mm f/5.6 Nikkor. Been with Canon some 20 years now. But, while I too am not a fan of the Z9 form factor, the PF800mm lens ...
  • Affinity Photo, FastRawViewer, DPP(occasionally) and TopazAI Sharpen and Denoise. Migrated from Adobe after about 20 years and never going back.
  • Maybe I do too much pixel peeping but I am very disappointed with my Sigma 14/1.8. I am used to astro APOs and expect round stars in the corners. IMO, the Sigma does not measure up. Sure, it can be ...
  • I can understand jumping from one platform to another for very specific reasons. Fer instance . . . if a fast 14mm is important to you, you might dump your current gear to be able to use the Sony ...
  • LOL! Indeed. I was one of those people who switched N to C for precisely that reason!
