  • I did quite a number of such panoramas with that lens and most of them at 200/f 5.6. From my experience I suppose that your lens is o.k.. Branches and thin twigs are no good objects to evaluate ...
  • Replied in R6 or R5 ?
    Coming from an EOS 5D/II, then R, I bought an R6 (because of the IS) thinking I  would never need 45 MP for my macrofotos. But then I missed the 30 MP resolution when shooting landscape panoramas ...
  • I always thought it would be too bulky - but now I'm using a Smallrig cage for around 50 €/$  and I'm complety happy with it. It has added two additional grips for my aging hands and the flip ...
  • Without downsampling you have to compare 100% to 150 % and not to 200% Increasing the 20 MP sensor of the R6 to the 45 MP of the R5 has brought a 50% higher linear resolution (exactly 49.9 %) and ...
  • Seems to be focused on the front edge of the foremost petal of the foremost flower and the focus depth at f4 near MFD is tiny
  • I've a new R6 and R5 with new original batteries but, whatever I tried, I got the green logo only on the screen of the R6 but it never on the R5 (firmware 1.4.0) even though "high speed ...
  • Yes that's a pity! I'm using flash frequently, mainly to shoot fotos of fast moving microorganisms with my microscope. At 1000x magnification they are very sensitive to shutter shocks. EFC is a ...
  • Replied in Canon R5 issue
    Which lens? How many pics.? I tested with an EF 100/2.0 macro without problems (30 steps) on a macro rack.
  • Replied in R5 VS R6
    The Rf 70-200 2.8 is the best lens I ever owned - and the most expensive :-( . I'm using it mainly for landscape panoramas. At 200/2.8 mm its better than the fixed focal-length EF 200/2.8 L I ...
  • There is an option ("Switch between VF/screen") to customize one of the buttons. I did that with the AF point button because Im using the multi controllers for that purpose.
  • Using both together I made the same experiences as R5D4 . So I sold the R. The difference in linear resultion between 20 ans 30 Mix is only around 23 %. Only the R5 would have been a real ...
  • Thanks for contributing your experience! So it seems to be a problem with the  electronics and not with the version of the battery.
  • I just put a charged LP-E6N in my new R6 instead of the LP-E6NH. I had been using this E6N for 3 years in my R and battery info was always showing full "Recharge performance" (three green points). ...
  • Thanks for this hint ! I like the FSViewer but was till now using version 6.2 which didn't digest RAWs. Version 7.5 does. It's working fast allowing basic processing e.g. for docu fotos where top ...
  • Thank you very much for your time consuming measurements! Here some additional much less precise results with an EF 100/2.8 mm Macro on EOS R6. Object: short ruler with mm scale at 45°, 20 Steps ...
  • I'm still wondering how I could miss your elaborate measurements two weeks ago! My crude ruler tests with the EF 100/2.8 gave similar results.  I'll add a foto with additial remarks to your thread ...
  • Thank you very much for this valuable information! Now I understand why the differences between FI= 4 and FI=10 were always far less than I supposed (basing on wrong assumptions). For the tests ...
  • Created question thread Focus Bracketing R6
    Simplifying macro stacking by focus bracketing was one of my reasons to buy an R6. First problem: setting the focus increment FI). The distance of the steps are arbitrary units on a scale 1-10 and ...
  • This cage is really ingenious, not expensive, the additional weight and size to be neglegted and it doesn't interfere with the screen or connections. Since I aquired it 4 weeks ago it is always on ...
  • No doubt I'm getting older! While reading "Protect images" on top of blue tab 1, I always missed "Erase images" just below and tried to find this in the neighbourhood of "card/folder sel." in ...
