  • It's interesting that in this thread previous threads about extenders with the R5 and the RF 100-500 there are numerous opinions expressed by those who "know" based not on experience with the ...
  • Replied in Interesting....
    I came across this thread from a browser search on R5, 100-500 and RF 2X extender. I may have missed this because I tired of reading all the hypotheses about why that combination wasn't worth ...
  • Or more concentration on taking video in the field than shooting photos. I really enjoy Jan and Glenn and their conversational interchange. I think Whistling Wings shoots more in the open and ...
  • The date on the FW 1.5.2 file I downloaded from the US Canon site was February 22, 2022. It's not like it was rushed out the day after the engineers said, "done." I don't expect another FW version ...
  • I second Manny's positive review of Powerextra LP-E6NH-compatible batteries. In addition to one spare OEM Canon LP-E6NH to go with the one included in the package with the Canon body I bought the ...
  • So, I took on the challenge someone posted that asked why Canon didn't put the "save settings" and then "do reset" in the FW update instructions. I don't know why they didn't put them there but as ...
  • So I've not had the "pull the battery out" to fix a lockup, but I've had the screen freeze for a few seconds  (10-20) and then recover after pushing some buttons. That really started with the ...
  • I'm not sure I'm following this thread (not that I'm working hard at it because I'm not an UWA lens user). However, clarify for me what this "when processed properly" issue is. Are we talking about ...
  • Exactly. With so many "beliefs" coming from so many unofficial sources (including forums) it's annoying that Canon makes that data hard to find. It's not in 934 pages of the FW 1.5 version of the ...
  • Right, guessing an answer is fine it just isn't the kind of official information that Canon could and should have supplied. Don
  • I missed more than one thing about that description but I let it go because  it wasn't something I considered using. It definitely was confusing of Rudy. Partly it was because he was saying that ...
  • My mother was a professional writer for IBM. She wrote instruction manuals for technical equipment and her contacts were the engineer/designers. They were plenty smart but they hadn't a clue about ...
  • I asked this very question in the "Behind the shot" comment section: "To clarify about cases: are all cases the same if you set "tracking sensitivity" and "accel/decel" the same way? like 0,0 or ...
  • Rudy's videos made sense of the AF settings for the 7DmkII out of the gobbledegook that was Canon's manual some years ago. His contribution to this video similarly straightens out much of the R5 ...
  • I had a freeze today with a simple tracking of a moderately flying bird and no 2X extender on, just the RF100-500. The camera froze with the viewfinder displaying the scene when the freeze ...
  • Yes. I had no freezes from the time I installed 1.5.0 until shortly before the "fix" came out. I used BBF, Servo, AF-On set to Eye-AF. I used my 2X extender only a couple of times and I can't ...
  • I also moved from a 7DmkII to the R5. I think you missed MarshallG's point. With the 7DII, if you expose manually, set shutter and aperture and let Auto ISO do the rest you have a good chance of ...
  • +2! I have thought about the 300 mm requirement and I think it follows along with all of the design goals for the R5 and it's L lenses. To make the 100-500 light and compact while keeping image ...
  • Thanks. Don
  • Thanks for the respons. There are 4 cases: 1, 2, 3 and AUTO. Which of those "stock cases" are you using? Don
