  • Replied in R6 or R5 ?
    Went through the same decision-making process as I shoot both concerts and wildlife (primarily birds). I mostly wanted the more compact RF 70-200 2.8. I ended up getting the R6. It's worked ...
  • Had my R6 for a little over a month. While shooting a festival last week, and not in burst mode, I took several pics quickly and the camera froze. Wouldn't turn off, EVF was frozen in place. Had ...
  • Thanks....I thought the crop mode was manually set. That makes perfect sense.
  • Created discussion thread EF-S lenses and vignetting: R6
    Quick question. I had always assumed that an EF-S lens would result in significant vignetting. I dug out some old lenses to see what would work. First I tried an old Sigma 18-250 zoom that I used a ...
  • Thanks. Figured it was somewhere. Is there a setting to put it on the card with raw files?
  • Created discussion thread Video location:R6
    Newbie with R6, on the road. When I hit record I see the recording taking place but then can’t find on the camera or after offloading to iPad. I know I’m missing something.
  • Newbie with an R6….I’m on the road without computer. After recording video, I can’t find it….it doesn’t transfer to my iPad, and if I scroll through the RAW files on the camera, I don’t see any of ...
  • I don't claim to know much about the R series as I just got my first one (R6) but I've shot over 30,000 frames on my 7DII with a significant percentage being birds in flight. There is no EVF lag ...
  • Yes....perfect. Thanks.
  • Created discussion thread AF button customization
    I'd like to change the AF-ON button on my R6 so when pressed it will change the AF selection from whatever I have it set to to spot AF. On the customization options, you can select from AF point ...
  • Thank you so much. That is the best concise description I've seen. I need to tape that to my wall....appreciate it.
  • OK, sorry, I was looking at the wrong menu. I'll try that setting except I need H+ for adequate BIF pics. Hate to keep asking questions, but under which circumstances do you use first curtain? I've ...
  • Replied in RP EVF delay
    Thanks. I realized something, which is that without RF lenses, none of those options appear. My birding lens is an EF. Since those options aren't even there, I would suppose that they wouldn't ...
  • Replied in RP EVF delay
    Since my original post I've purchased an R6. I was pretty surprised when shooting birds in flight that the lag was quite bothersome, and I can't find that setting on my R6, with either RF lenses ...
  • I just rented an RP with the 70-200 2.8 RF for that very reason, since I have to shoot in low light concert venues and festivals at night. While I got some decent pictures with it, focusing was an ...
  • Replied in Camera rattle?
    Hoping not....
  • Replied in Camera rattle?
    Thanks. Not had one with IBIS before. Relieved.
  • Created discussion thread Camera rattle?
    Literally just got an R6 in the mail. When I move it side to side, there is a rattle as if something is loose. Present when I take the lens off. This does not appear right. Anyone else? Ed. ...
  • Replied in RP vs R6
    Thanks....at 74 I'm sure the IBIS will be greatly appreciated as well. And I really need the ISO performance. Appreciate your input....
  • Replied in RP vs R6
    Really appreciate the input. I just ordered an R6. Probably a pretty steep learning curve before I have to use it next month, but I'll muddle through it. Thanks to everyone for their assistance.....
