  • The percent of people using this would be at least as high as the percent of people who buy 1st party wireless triggers.  I think if the trigger was bundled into the body then probably even more ...
  • I don't understand why it's such a problem for Canon and other camera makers to include a radio flash trigger in their cameras. If there are regulatory problems then how did they surmount those ...
  • I feel camera makers including Canon can do more to address the main reasons for "needing" battery grips and complaints about the grips. 1. Ergonomics/pinky placement: 2+ years after launch why is ...
  • Thanks to all who replied. I've got a new laptop on order with i9-12900H & RTX 3060.  Hopefully using DPP4 will at least be "tolerable" on that.
  • My R5 recently lost focus 2-3 times over the course of a multi-hour shoot with a model standing about 5-7 feet away (in front of a blank paper background) looking into the camera. It was in Eye AF ...
  • Thanks. I'll try that. Thanks, that's encouraging. On my existing 9-year laptop, it takes about 90 seconds to convert/save from RAW (CR3) to either JPG or 16-bit TIF, so it looks like your machine ...
  • I've got a 9-year old laptop that, at least at the time of purchase, was considered an upper end spec: 4th gen Core i7, NVIDIA GT740M card with 2GB, 8GB RAM, 1TB SSD. Canon's DPP4 runs unbelievably ...
  • The Think Tank Storyteller 10 fits my R5 with 24-105 F4 along with a 2nd lens (or flash).  It also fits inside a backpack style carry-on bag.  There are no attachment points for a tripod, but aside ...
  • Fair point, but some of us would prefer to go ES for less noise and shutter longevity concerns, but only if there are no compromises on bit depth.  Also it would need to be compatible with flash ...
  • For those of us who are less technically inclined, is there a simple explanation why this is the case?  I've been hoping Canon will do something to give the R5 14 bits in ES, at least in single ...
  • Replied in R5 affordable?
    By the time you factor in the cost of lenses (especially L-series) and various 1st party accessories (flash, battery grips, etc.) I think the alternatives from competitors are more affordable. ...
  • I've had good luck with this product, which has a cigarette lighter style adapter for charging. https://www.adorama.com/gxch1lpe6.html
  • Replied in Smaller Z9
    If Nikon had a Z9 without the integrated grip I would ditch Canon. Ideal would be if they came up with new sensor that eliminates the need for vertical shooting with no resolution loss (e.g., ...
  • Interesting. I was getting a lot of blown out shots using a Godox V860IIIC flash + XProC, on an R5 with 1.52 firmware, in ETTL with HSS at shutter speeds faster than 1/250. Godox themselves told ...
  • Based on my recent communications with Godox customer support I don't believe they've fixed their issues with R5/R6 yet. Last week they acknowledged the issue still exists; specifically, that ...
  • I've been playing around with the Godox V860IIIC flash + XProC wireless trigger combo. Although it works well most of the time, it has problems getting the exposure correct when using HSS + E-TTL ...
  • Has there been any update to this in the last few months?  Specifically, will a Godox flash (like V860III) work properly on an R5 (with up to date firmware) using HSS and ETTL, either on-camera or ...
  • I agree with others that you'll probably be happier with Sony. As a Canon user with a small lens collection I share your frustration at the very high cost of RF glass, but I'm willing to pay a ...
  • I've setup my R5 as follows: Manual mode with Auto ISO; C1, C2, C3 are different combos of shutter type and drive mode. Front dial: shutter speed Rear dial: aperture Rear wheel: exposure comp Shutt ...
  • I'm very happy with my R5 but my list of wanted improvements is: - More than 3 custom modes. Start with 3 by default but allow user to add more as needed. - A low speed but maximum quality (14 bit) ...
