  • I own the older 70-300 and the L version. Before I bought the L version I bought the nano version, looking for an upgrade to the older 70-300. It was better, but not enough to justify buying it. ...
  • None of these look critically sharp to me. You might get more help if you hadn't stripped the camera data from the EXIF. It would be helpful to be able to see exactly which focus points/modes you ...
  • My 80D definitely makes a little click, too. It has worked flawlessly for a year and a half. so I would not be too worried about it if I were you. I like the tactile feedback. Seems very normal to ...
  • The 70D shoots 20MB files and the buffer only holds 11 raw shots, according to the DPR review, while the 80D shoots 24MB files and the buffer holds 24 raws. I would expect it to take longer to ...
  • Replied in Examples
    My point was that these were not great test shots and that more rigorous testing was due. It sounds like you have done that, so I'd agree with sending it in for repair, :-D You have had ...

    On the first picture, you missed the bird. The focus spot shows to be just under the bird in an area that will be difficult to pick a focus from. For the second image, your selected focus box ...
  • Replied in Help please
    Or maybe the keep-alive battery on the motherboard? Usually that causes it to lose the time first, but....
  • The 15-85 was announced on September 1, 2009. The minimum focus distance is 0.35 m (13.78″) and the maximum magnification is 0.21×. It is probably my favorite lens--sharp wide open at both ends of ...
  • I use Bulk Rename Utility: http://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk/Main_Intro.php It is free for non-commercial use and will easily do any kind of renaming you want. The interface looks a little ...
  • I don't know how your HDMI splitter works, but on a normal dual-monitor LR setup you can have your current "after" image on both monitors, and (in Develop mode) press the backslash key to see the ...
  • The ColorMunki software is indeed crippled, but you can use DisplayCal to set luminance on the Smile. Definitely the least expensive way to go. George
  • The specs on your paper are the same as for the Canon Pro Luster. As for the abrasion setting, I have never had to use it using any Canon papers. This certainly is a strange problem. It looks like ...
  • Is this Canon Pro Luster paper? And is the paper being fully supported by the paper tray? (Fully opened.) The paper looks very thick. Perhaps turn on the "Prevent paper abrasion" in the Custom ...
  • I have never been able to rearrange my Develop panels and I can't find a Kost tutorial that even says you can do so. Please enlighten me, as that would take another issue off my Lightroom ...
  • This happened to me this morning. "Develop not responding" when waking my computer up. Restarted LR and so far it is fine. That is the first time since I installed the upgrade last Tuesday, and ...
  • I suspect that your use of the uncommon acronym OCF sidetracked them. I have been doing photography for more than 60 years and didn't understand what you were looking for, either.  I don't think I ...
  • I tried both as a smart object and not, and mine worked correctly both ways. Have you checked your Photoshop color settings?
  • I am not seeing that here. Did you update PS at the same time as ACR? I am at Photoshop 19.1.3 and ACR 10.3.0.933. I also use 16bit Prophoto RGB instead of 8bit aRGB, but I don't suspect that to be ...
  • In One-shot mode, the camera only focuses once when you first half-press the shutter. If you hold the shutter down for a burst, it does not refocus again  until you release the shutter and press ...
  • What I like about the Peak Slide is that I can carry it "appendix carry" in the front when I am actively shooting, and then easily shorten the strap and swing it around behind my back for when I ...
