I'm shooting stop-motion in Dragon Frame with a 5D Mark III and when in Manual mode and in live view mode the image gets autocorrected when i hold my hand in front of the lens. It even gets overexposed when i hold my hand fully in front of the lens.The difference is also seeable in the picture. I cant seem to find out witch function this is on the camera. My question is: - What is this function, and how do i turn it of. Jarl Piepers

Hi all, Not long ago, i started to use 1.4x ii extender with 300mm 2.8 IS version 1 on 5D3. However, it seems to me that the system produces not sharp enough images. But does it? If it does, it is either the system or me. Today, i went to the local zoo and made a couple of shots on a tripod and handheld to check the sharpness.First images are from bare 300mm 2.8 and others are from the 420mm setup. Please take a view at the otc pictures and share how you see their sharpness.  All...

Hi all! I like shooting wildlife in Manual mode with auto ISO. The problem is that my 5D3 frequently underexposes. That is especially clear while shooting BIF in skies. I'm sure this problem is not unique to my camera. Please, advice, are there any options to deal with this?

Hi, all! I think to try shooting wildlife in Av mode, instead of Manual mode, with auto ISO and minimum shutter speed. Unfortunately, 5d3 allows the minimum shutter speed of only 1/250, wich is practically useless for wildlife.  Having tried Magic Lantern, i now 90% sure that the add-on does not offer this functionality. 10% refers to the cases when you're good with coding, and then you might have a chance to get this work. This is not exactly my case. Is there a way or, once and for all,...

I need a tripod that can support my Canon 5D3 and moderately heavy lens (Tamron 150-600). I currently have a Slik U-212, but there's head creep. Also, thinking about going with a ball head and I need one that can be used for macro shooting. Am I asking too much to get a good tripod and head for that setup for $200 or less? Thanks.

Hello, iam working as a photographer in real estate and recently we changed our website sliders to widescreen, so I need to change aswell. In the Menu of my 5D Mark III I can change the aspect ratio from native 4:3 easily to 16:9 - but even with that change the pictures coming out the same. Any idea what I might do wrong, as I want all information in a 16:9 ratio, not a cropped one. Appreciate any help, thanks. Best, Luke

I have a new 5D mark III and I noticed that when I was taking some pictures last weekend there was a very noticeable jump/shift in the image I was seeing through the viewfinder when I tried to focus.  I didn't happen every time but it happened enough to have me worried.  It seemed to happen on the first shot after I let the camera sit for a few minutes. Has anyone else had this issue?  Should I send the camera in for repair?

Has anyone done a good comparison between the 5D4 and the XT2 image quality? I shoot 5-10 weddings a year and have always been a canon shooter but I recently bought an XT2 (but not much glass for it.) I like the aspect of seeing my exposure in the evf but I'm not really happy with the images I'm getting in low light. I sold my 5D mark 3 but thinking about buying a 5D mark 4 instead of investing in a lot of Fuji glass... I want good low light images and I would like to hear from photographers...

my camera takes ~n seconds to write to memory card for an n-second exposure.its not the memory card's issue because I tried the card on my friend's 5D Mark III which writes a lot faster. The card is x1066 speed, 32GB.anyone know if this is normal for the 5D2?
