  • I never sell any camera equipment I have ever bought.  I use it until it dies, keep it as a backup or pass it along to a family member.-- My life is a circle of confusion - photography is my ...
  • I have both my EOS 3 and Elan 7E sitting on a shelf in my office, neither of which has seen a roll of film since I bought my 7D.  I loved the eye focus at first, but when it stopped working for me ...
  • For slow moving wildlife that you can get close enough to or have long enough of a lens, the RP will probably give you somewhat better photos and more reliable focus.  If you want to shoot fast ...
  • Fun is the last way I would describe photo editing.  I spent over 20 years, when I wasn't in the studio shooting, sitting in front of a computer screen scanning, color correcting, compositing and ...
  • You say that you shoot events.  The last time I shot events was during the days of film.  Unless things have changed, I would imagine that the lighting is different at each event you shoot.  Even ...
  • To my eye, the noise is between one and two stops better than the 7D2 without any noise control in post.  However, the R5  cleans up real nicely even at ISO as high as 12000 if exposed correctly ...
  • Created discussion thread R5, R6, R3? Horses for courses.
    A few months ago, I bought an R5.  It wasn’t really the camera I wanted, but it had become clear to me that Canon wasn’t going to be releasing a 7D3 anytime soon, if at all, and I wasn’t impressed ...
  • I have been very pleased with the images from my R5 with the EF100-400 Mk2 and 1.4x Mk3.  When using the 2x at close range, I’ve also even happy.  But when using the 2x at longer distances ...
  • Replied in Toyota
    I walked into my local Toyota dealer a month ago and drove away three hours later in the exact Highlander XLE that I was looking for.  Made my first lease payment Saturday and wrecked it ...
  • I have the Apple one and it works fine for me
  • I updated it about an hour ago and have been working with it since it finished downloading.  I can’t do any exact comparisons, but it feels much fast, at least twice as fast would be my guess with ...
  • I'm sure I’ll skip at least a couple,  but here goes. Kodak Brownie, Kodak Retinette 1A, Pentax Spotmatic, Olympus Pen Canon Pellix, Mamiya c220, Mamiya RB67, Pentax LX, Rollei SLX, Canon EOS 630, ...
  • Good luck with reading that manual.  I gave up and watched videos and asked questions.  I did download the manual to my iPad and have searched it a few times.  Actually, the camera is pretty easy ...
  • Wow, Fred, the detail in those birds is incredible.  To be able to shoot that lens with a doubler at ISO 10,000 and get shots like that is the reason I bought the R5.  It'll be awhile before I can ...
  • Same Sparrow, comparable distance, which at my house is closer to 20 to 30 feet than 60 to 70, full frame, uncrossed.  Mine was shot with the R5 and the EF100-400 Mk II using the EF 1.4x Mk III ...
  • I bought the EOS 3 because I wanted a step up from my EOS A2, and I was interested in the eye controlled focus, which never did work very well for me.  It was about a year after I bought the ...
  • Shot this Chipping Sparrow yesterday with the R5 and EF100-400 Mk2 with EF 1.4x Mk 3.  I've been playing with DXO's new PureRaw software for this high ISO images, and thought it would be really ...
  • Thanks.  The moment would have been better if not for the wind.  I have three or four other shots from this sequence which are in better focus, but have other problems compositionally.  And ...
  • Created discussion thread My R5 and Chickadee Kisses
    A couple of photos from this afternoon. Both shot with the R5 and the RF 100-400 Mk II with the EF 1.4x Mk III. My brother Ed keeps telling me to try shooting with higher ISO, so, since the light ...
  • Haven't been able to get out much, but feeders at my deck bring in the birds.
