  • Unfortunately no love with the new firmware with this issue.  The delay persists.  Still pumping the shutter button to keep the viewfinder alive.
  • Appreciate the link to that thread, thank you!  I downloaded and tried the PS script.  Oddly it didn't seem to do anything that StarStaX doesn't do.  It merged all the images but it didn't do ...
  • Thanks!  I actually did use StarStaX to stack all of these images and I used "gap filling" mode.  But your point is a valid one, you have to really zoom in to notice this effect so it's probably ...
  • That's what I used to create the shot.  Loaded my 430 or so images into StarStaX and set it to "Gap Filling".  Even tried setting the "Amount" slider all the way over to the max, but it doesn't ...
  • Thanks for the tips!  Seems like I can mostly get the trees masked out by selecting on a color.  The median blur helps tremendously but I need to play around with this because it needs more blur ...
  • I just set the camera's intervalometer to 1 sec with no stop.  I set the shot to F4, ISO 1600, 25 second exposures.  Drop the gear off in a secure location and let it start then come back 4 hours ...
  • Thanks for the tip!  Never tried a median filter before so I'll give that a shot.  I think the thing that complicates things greatly for me here is the irregular nature of the trees and especially ...
  • Created discussion thread Star trail gaps
    Apologies if this subject has been posted before, I couldn't find anything relevant by doing a search. I've been practicing with star trails lately and overall I'm happy with the results.  The only ...
  • Found it, it's under C.Fn4 on the R5...thanks for the tip. I didn't realize this setting would have any impact on USM lenses...I thought it was for STM lenses.   Anyway, I actually think it turned ...
  • I was able to get around the problem by using a strong flashlight on some distant trees.  Still, I'm wondering what setting would cause the lens to reset focus.  I would think if a lens is set to ...
  • Where did you change the settings on your R and your RP?  This is an R5 so I would think the settings would be in comparable areas.
  • Created discussion thread Lens manual focus keeps resetting
    I'm having issues with my manual focus setting not being retained when the camera is turned off.  What happens is when I turn the camera off, the focus point moves back to a point in the middle of ...
  • Replied in The key
    Wish I knew why ours were different.  I tried Auto1 and Auto2 and they both have about a 1 second delay for EVF to turn on.  Somewhat annoying shooting BIF today...I was constantly pumping the ...

    What lens...is it all your lenses?  I've been using almost exclusively the 100-500 with the 1.4x...perhaps that makes a difference?  I should try with another lens or without the extender.
  • They both seem to be about the same for me with Auto 2 maybe having slightly less lag.  I'll try it out in the field today.
  • Replied in The key
    I pretty much do the same thing.  Pre-focus where I think the action is going to be and I half press the shutter constantly when the action is heavy.  My focus is set to the back buttons.
  • For me, I bring the viewfinder to my eye and I can literally count "one-one thousand" before it turns on so it's more like a second.  And yeah, that really doesn't sound like much and in the grand ...
  • Yeah, I know some people use gaffer tape too, which would probably work fine but burn through a lot more battery.  Hopefully Canon will someday fix this to be more instantaneous.  It's a minor ...
  • Thanks.  Hopefully it will be addressed.
  • That's not the case for me. It's a good 1 second at least. Again, it doesn't sound like a huge deal but for BIF it can make a difference. My camera is new and I upgraded to 1.2. Here's someone ...
