  • As a landscape photographer it's always RAW, I find WB a powerful way to adjust the mood of an image. Also, 16 bit is important. I find panorama stitching 8 bit files hopeless. I wouldn't be ...
  • Aye, you're right. It's at Canon now, getting a sensor clean. Then I can feel like I am starting from new again.
  • From what I understand (talking to Canon) 'shot count' is absolute, independent of any file numbering permutations. FWIW, all photos from the camera number perfectly sequentially from one folder to ...
  • Replied in A store demo ?
    Absolutely. So the takeaway from this could be: Always check how clean the sensor is on your new camera as soon as possible, because that is the only time the manufacturer will consider cleaning ...
  • It is a little difficult to explain everything here on a forum, especially with things like the file numbering starting at 3375. If there were already 3375 activation's that would reflect in about ...
  • Thanks. I don't know how to do the count. The camera was sent back under warranty for an 'Error 99' and dirty sensor. Canon apparently replaced a board but didn't clean the sensor, presumably ...
  • Thanks. 1. Agreed. I'll check the sensor first thing on my next purchase (I thought I had purchased a brand new camera so didn't bother). Canon indicated this is the only time they would do a ...
  • Thanks. I agree, I know how many shots I have taken, but can't really prove that. How do I check the shot count to see if LV has an effect? To add a bit: I took the camera back to the store when I ...
  • Thanks for the feedback. I'm pretty careful with my purchases, but might have been caught out here. As for deleting files in camera, it retains the deleted file number sequence. I've added ...
  • Thanks for the feedback guys, it is useful. I agree, too much time passed to do anything about it. As it is, Canon are doing a paid service on it. The guy at the store said they sent any returned ...
  • Replied in A store demo ?
    The Canon guy insisted LV didn't add to the shot count but I am keeping an open mind on it. It would probably explain the 'extra 700 shots' if it did add to the count - I often use LV for focusing. ...
  • Replied in A store demo ?
    My bad, I described that wrong. It was new, still packed in the box. To keep things simple, the sensor had more dust than I would expect for a near new camera. I have a Visible Dust Arctic ...
  • Created discussion thread How new is my camera?
    I bought a Canon 800D a few months back from a large New Zealand retailer. Unboxed - it appeared new . I use it as a back up body to my 5D2. Usually, I just leave my 24-205 or 70-200 on it for ...
  • I guess it depends on what you shoot and how serious you are, but I would consider keeping your 80D  as a second body. I operate with a 5D2 / 16-35, and an 800D / 70-200. I am looking at updating ...
  • Well, this is the reverse of what we used to do - put our FF lenses on crop bodies where the image circle would be larger than the sensor and things like soft edges could be 'cut away'. I have an ...
  • You can approximate a RAW histogram by using a neutral picture style and tweaking it depending on how the camera behaves. I keep my 800D on a 'de-tuned' standard profile in case I switch to video ...
  • @David: Jim Kasson has a very deep discussion on the Z7 banding in the Z7 forum. A few of the guys have uncovered some issues, often in extreme circumstances - These Nikon guys start their torture...

  • My pick is the EOS R doesn't perform as well as the 5D4 in similar ways to the Z7 not performing as well as the D850.
    DPR probably want to figure out why before presenting their findings.
    For the...

  • Canon Landscape photographer here. This could be the lens that decides my future direction. It needs to perform at least as well as the EF16-35/4. [Dollar for dollar, I reckon this is one of the ...
  • Equal noise performance with 35% more resolution.
