  • Here's another shot from both DPP and Capture one. OK, maybe it is my post doing some straightening, I'm looking at the trees on the left side of the frame. I'll have to figure this one out. I ...
  • Thanks for the response, I haven't tried yet DPP but thats a good idea. The 24-105 L lens doesn't really have much perspective distortion at any focal length. I have been using this lens for 3 ...
  • Created discussion thread Distorted R5 raw files?
    Attached is a photo example of what I am now seeing sometimes. Took a weekend trip for a steam train photo op. For this photo I used my R5 with the RF 24-105 f/4L This happen to a dozen or so ...
  • Your 16 weighs next to nothing so take that for indoor or even some landscapes. The 35 is also a small and light lens that would be a great street lens. Or even the 50, its a cheap lens too. My ...
  • Yep card reader is the way to go. Standard cheap readers do ok but will be a little slower, thats not a problem for me as I use Capture one Pro (C1) for post and I import inside that software. ...
  • What you did was VERY dangerous! Losing power during a firmware upgrade can cause you to "Brick" your camera. Meaning it could render your camera unusable, a paperweight. If that would happen its ...
  • Replied in Canon Creep
    Recycled? If you mean the RF lenses are just EF lenses with an adaptor welded on, that would be incorrect for most all of the RF lenses. Maybe the cheap 50 but even the 35mm was upgraded from a ...
  • I had one day where I was in heavy rain for a couple hours this past Christmas season shooting lights with my R5. I didn't drop it in a puddle or anything but it was soaked. When I got home, I ...
  • I own the RF 50 f/1.2 and used to own the EF 85 f/1.2L II. The 85 was a beautiful lens for portraits. There are times I miss the 85 but my 50 is a little lighter and smaller. It's still a big and ...
  • Well said! What's important to me is can I print an 8X10 or 11X14 and have it look good on the wall. If it looks sharp from 2 or 3 feet away from the print, its perfect to me. I have a 27" 5K ...
  • Quality and price "USUALLY" go hand in hand. Have you considered a prime? Zooms are handy but primes are faster, lighter, sharper and smaller as well as cheaper than most zooms in the same range. T ...
  • Dont know about you but I just learned something from this thread. I switched to Auto White and its night and day on the color from a quick test I just did.
  • I owned the EF 70-200 2.8 a while back. I sold it and bought the EF 70-200 4.0 for the lightness and size reduction. I missed the 2.8 version and had sellers remorse. Now with the mirrorless I ...
  • AngleBird released a new cheaper CFExpress card. I got a 512gb CFExpress card for $170 I think it was. Its a little slower then the other major brands but is still capable of recording 8K Video so ...
  • Bought my R5 in August 2020 and no spares were available. Put in for "Notify me" on both B&H and Adaorama. Weeks later I got an email that B&H had them in stock so I bought 2. Some weeks after ...
  • I tried to like it, I really did but just couldn't get comfortable with Fv. I typically shoot in Av or Manual modes. So for me Fv just didn't work for me. I would have to think about getting back ...
  • There should be some available sometime in 2023
  • I worked at a camera store for a year when I was outsourced and a lot of broken cameras walked in the door. I saw a lot of SD card slot failures in camera because of the spring loading mechanics ...
  • I'll respectfully disagree with that statement. Most ANY of todays cameras will render great images. Low noise at high ISO's are said to only be about 1/3 stop difference between the R5 and R6. But ...
  • The R5 is said to have a shutter life of half a million shots. I wouldn't worry about it. If you go through that many images in a few years between upgrades, then I would say the cost is minimal ...
