On page 448 of the manual there is a blue box at the bottom with a blue bullet "When the AF point is registered ..." followed by a small black bullet "Automatic selection AF: [ ] HP (HP: Home Position)" Try as I might, I can't get that display. I am pretty sure I can register and unregister an AF point and I've been able to get the SEL HP and SEL . Mostly I'm just curious if the manual is mistaken or am I missing something? I have firmware 1.0.2
Is there a chart somewhere that shows (e.g.) JPEG, RAW, Video across the top and the various settings like "Highlight tone priority" on the left side with dots or footnote numbers in the squares of the chart. Which settings affect which modes and when. I recently learned that while white balance does not change the image data for RAW, it does tag it in the metadata which can (sometimes) affect how the editing software first presents the image to you. e.g. setting the right color balance...

Hello, 1stly I would like to say thanks you again to this web site and all kind people here that it helped me choose the best camera for me :) I have some questions regarding fast and chaotic moving subjects in different colors- AF settings. 1)Im shooting animals - also dogs and Frisbee. I have read an article where was mentioned that for different colors of dogs you should set different AF settings. Any recommendations? Experience? 2) What you could suggest or your experience: what I should...
Although this question's been asked before (I'm a relative newcomer to DSLR photography – please don't bite!), I wondered if the release of DPP4 and the updates to Lightroom CC/6 might mean the answer has changed since even last year. Would you advise that a complete novice learn the basics of RAW processing with DPP (and perhaps even stay with it permanently) or move straight to Lightroom? I've been using a Canon 650D/T4i for the last two years or so and, although I've been shooting in RAW,...
I'm not sure how to phrase my question. Start with a scene where it is possible to take the picture with the correct exposure with no flash and exposure compensation is set to 0. Add ETTL flash with the flash compensation set to 0 (I have a 600 EX if that matters). What does the camera do? How much flash is added? Its not zero because I see the flash go off. Holding the exposure compensation fixed, when the flash compensation is adjusted up and down, more or less flash is added but how...
Dear all! Please help me solve the problem or find the reason for this problem with my 1Dx. What happens is that from time to time when I try to focus using the AF-button, there's no response from the camera. There is no reaction, the focus point does flash and AF does work. Nothing helps. Turning off AF on the lens, turning the camera, replacing the lens - all this does not change anything. Again, there is no reaction, the focus point does flash and AF does work. The only thing that helped...
All, I've used my trusty 1D X for almost 3 years now and when I carry it around it starts feeling heavy... especially the standard strap feels a bit too narrow and bites into my neck / shoulders. To be clear, I do not want to change my camera / lenses. I am fine with holding it when I am shooting (and I adore its ergonomics). I am just looking for an alternative to the standard Canon neck strap. Something wider and padded would be great and I am open to options. Thanks in advance for your...
I shot a sequence of images in raw mode with ISO, shutter speed, and aperture set by hand so the images would come out consistently. But they change color from image to image. I'm viewing them in LR. If I pick two images to study and set LR's white balance back to "As Shot", the two images start at a different temperature and tint and do not appear the same. To rephrase, looking at the images before LR alters them still has the images change colors from image to image. When I ask LR to set...

On my Canon 1DX if I press the INFO button one of the pieces of information I get is an estimate of how many images are possible on the memory card based on the image sizes or format in which I have chosen to record my images. See below (in this case, its around 2553): INFO screen Now, if I then enter the camera settings status screen, I also get to see, again, how many images it's possible for me to store on the memory card and the figure ALWAYS agrees with that from the display given by the...
