  • Created discussion thread Profoto Firmware Download
    Long story short; received the email to say C11 was now available for my A1's, downloaded, forgot to install, and I've seemingly deleted it. I'm looking on my Profoto profile, and it's no longer ...
  • Every camera manufacturer does this - it's not a Canon thing, and it's basic economics. First few years they claw back R&D costs, after which prices start to fall. Once newer and better ...
  • A lot of it will come down to style and personal preference. Personally, I moved back to Canon for the RF 24-70/2.8, for weddings. For years I've shot a 35/85 combo, but it just doesn't give you ...
  • I'd sort of "forget" the megapixel argument. If you're not processing hundreds of pictures per session, Lightroom will do a more than good enough job of upscaling the R6's files. For me, the R5 was ...
  • Mainly; (1) Really poor mechanical shutter performance, especially with flash (from pressing the shutter to actually firing, there was circa 1/3rd second delay).
  • 6D was the first foray into full frame, and I loved that camera. Upgraded to the 5D4 for dual card slots, but if anything the camera felt like a step back in terms of IQ. Needed to start investing ...
  • I know you've discounted it from selection, but the RF 24-70/2.8 is one of the main reasons I came back to Canon. It's easily the best 24-70/2.8 ever made. The Sony 24-70/2.8 GM is relatively poor ...
  • Spending the month trying to train myself out of using Av and shooting fully manual. Lots of tinkering with settings, but it'll be worth it!
  • If it was me, in that scene, I'd be exposing for highlights, leaving an overall underexposed shot. From the one you've shared, the highlights are clipped at points - it's a lot easier to lift ...
  • Basically this. Aperture is always the important for group shots. I'm usually at f8, and make sure focus is on the B&G.
  • All has arrived so I'm just testing it all now. I'd already come to that conclusion, but should still serve the purpose. I'm not intend to make regular changes - once or twice a day when shooting ...
  • Created discussion thread Q2 & variable ND - experience?
    Hi all, Quick intro; I shoot Canon professionally, and have wasted many a purchase on trying to find something cheaper than the Q2 for family/vacation stuff where I want something more compact. ...
  • Wholly disagree with you on this. Both the Sony & Canon budget 35's & 85's have their pros & cons, but the RF's certainly aren't "so far behind the Sony primes". Hasn't this always been the case ...
  • The R6 will be a step down in build quality compared E-M1III & X-T4. The RF 24-70 however is the best mid range zoom I've ever used. Yes it's a polycarbonate shell, but build feels on par with the ...
  • They're a bit different, but a lot more workable than Sony. Similar colours, but not quite as "monochrome" as Fuji are. Nothing like the film simulations you get with Fuji. You have to rely on ...
  • I owned the RF 35, and now own the EF 35 1.4 L II. Depending on where you live, there are some incredible deals on the EF (there was a £100 difference between what the RF sold for, and what the EF ...
  • Yep - I never really hammer a flash hard, it's just good to know that they aren't restricted to the 3fps Profoto claim they are.
  • For anyone interested, the A1's arrived today - so thought I'd share some initial thoughts. (1) Profoto advise where shooting distance is less than 1m, TTL will over expose. (1.1) With a front facing flash, ...
  • The RF 24-70/2.8 is the best standard zoom I've ever used. Period. Anyone joining the RF mount and looking for a 24-70, I'd always recommend it.
  • I think it's more a response to Sony, rather than "not good enough to be an R1" It'll be 24-ish MP in line with 1DXIII/A9II, and Canon have made the decision to keep the R1 name for an A1 competitor.
