Hi everyone.  I've owned my 5D Mark III for about 3.5 years now and started having a problem with it last year.  I put it down to the older memory card I was using, but then it happened last night with an almost new card (Sandisk Extreme CF, in both cases).  Since it first occurred, it's only happened in about 1 in every 1200 photos.  I've only provided one photo because it's the exact same symptom every time. If anyone can shed some light on this, it'd be great.  Thanks!

Hello!I'm buying either a 6D or 5D mark iii to use for product photography but I'm not completely sure on the right lens to buy with it. I'll be shooting mainly table top shoes and hats and top down flat views for clothing as well as detail shots (including pretty close up fabric textures). The company I work for uses 24-105 lenses for all table top product shots so I was going to go with that. But just wondering if I'm missing out on something more appropriate.  Also any input on the 6D vs...

I have a 5d Mark III and have never really used live view.  Is it worth using?  If so, does anybody have any tips or know of a good guide to get going with it? Thanks!

Hello! Can someone please help me out? I'm trying to work on being a music photographer and I need help/suggestions on what go-to zoom-in lens I should get. It would have to be good enough for outdoor and indoor lighting, pretty versatile and works well with a Canon 5D Mark iii. The only lens I have right now is a Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens and I want to finally invest in a good zoom-in lens that's really good when it comes in indoor concert shows. I was thinking about buying a Canon...

i know this question has been asked multiple times. But today you can get a new Canon 24-70 f4 gray market copy for about $650 or a Tamron 24-70 f2.8 for $720.  I'm struggling with a decision.  I like Tamron's claimed sharpness but am concerned with QC issues that got reported by a lot of people on the internet. What's your opinion? How big a difference in sharpness is there really?

Hello! I have a few questions regarding the video capability of a 5D MkIII vs a 750D 1. Is the video capability of Mark III better than the 750D? 2. Does a full frame camera make a difference on the quality/resolution of the video?  3. Which has better video resolution, 5D Mark III or 750D? 4. Does the type of lens (specifically a 18-55 kit lens) affect the video quality/resolution? Note: I have an incoming event coverage.. and my 5D Mark III is unfortunately, out of commission. and the only...

I've been using the M forum to learn my way around my new M5.  I've noticed that the majority of landscapes shown here are shot at F5.6 or lower, often F4 or F3.5.  Sometimes even F2. These shots often have nearby foregrounds and distant mountains miles away.  With my 5DIII I tried to stay up around F11 and higher for such shots and relaxed that a bit when using the SL1 but never went below about F8 even with the help of the APS-C sensor.  Shouldn't I be be sticking with F8 or higher when...

New here, and new to the M-series but very experienced with multiple Canon cameras. My (current) main camera is 5D3. I just received my EOS M5 and going through all the options. (I'm the type that will read the entire manual and fine print and go through all options on the camera.) In going through those options, I'm trying to access the option in the title. I've gone into the red/shoot menu #6, selected "High ISO Speed NR", and have 4 of the 5 options enabled: off, low, standard, and high....
