  • Created discussion thread Which of my lens for Astro
    Ok so I'm not planning on getting into astro photography in any big way, just wanting to experiment with my existing kit. All the advice recommends the fastest widest lens available. But, I wont be ...
  • Anthony thanks. Looks like I'll be offering mine up for a new home.
  • I haven't checked. Would this have a bearing on the strange behaviour?
  • I will have to check that out. I made sure to get a converter which was compatible to my efs lens (possibly not the ef) but I didn't even think about camera compatibility. Oh well, it may just ...
  • I think it's the Kenko teleplus HD. It's the version which is compatible with efs lens. Just tried on my 55-250 and no under exposure. What it says on the ex meter is what I get. Not the same with ...
  • Created question thread Anyone use 1.4 tele extenders?
    I have noticed a problem using my Kenko 1.4 teleconverter on my M5. I have a canon 70-200 f4L and recently bought a Kenko 1.4 tele extender for using with it. I knew before i bought it that the 1.4 ...
  • Replied in Night Race
    Always requires a bit of a hike, but with the fell racing i try to get runners in compositions with impact, while thinking of them producing their phone down the pub at the weekend saying "wait ...
  • Very nice Bill, thank you for sharing. If i tried this one on my Canon M5 and 70-200 f4L i would end up with a super sharp shot......... of the tyre wall in the background!
  • Replied in Night Race
    Very nice, and great separation. Unfortunately my M5 has awful focus tracking which i can't rely on, although you have a good position where runners aren't coming fast at you (and a very good ...
  • Replied in Night Race
    The flash was the only thing illuminating the runners so no ambient light entering from the camera side to cause motion blur. No flash would have resulted in a complete silhouette. The only other ...
  • From what i've read the M50 has better focusing than the M5 out of the box.
  • Replied in Night Race
    Not sure, first time I've been at it. Might have been for the event. There was a gazebo with disco lights and music also.
  • Created discussion thread Night Race
    Local night trail 10k. If it doesn't come up in the exif, this was shot with a Canon M5, Tamron 17-50 at around 1/20 (allow enough ambient to get the Stately home in) and ISO around 1,000 - 1,600. ...
  • Replied in Enough
    Yes, i can see exactly what you mean. Have you ever noticed this with other lenses?
  • I've never used the pop up flash so don't know if mine suffers the same. Fingers crossed for you.
  • Following with interest, love the idea of a better kit lens with f2.8-4.
  • Replied in Enough
    I see what you mean, that is strange. I don't tend to use the 15-45 much anymore and have never checked for any focus issues such as the ones you refer to due to there being no mirror and focus ...
  • I didn't notice to be honest. The file is on my home PC (so i have no access at the moment) but i just checked canon UK where i would have downloaded it and the file is .FI2 extension. What i did ...
  • Can't say I've tested the low light focus much, but would be interested to see how your test goes. I intend to try more face tracking with mine for runners using the 70 200 f4. Have never settled ...
  • Ben You are correct here. I updated my M5 software through the Canon UK site a couple of weeks ago. I didn't need the PTP thing, but was hopeful they may have included other bug fixes, and they did!! ...
