First try with birds. AF and a little practice paid off a little.

# of shots left depends on your ISO setting. If you're shooting in Auto ISO, the # remaining is the camera's "guesstimate" assuming your shots are taken with the highest ISO that you set as the limit. If you're shooting lower ISO, the number of images tend to go up as the files take up less space.

As far as the shutter count... not sure what you mean. I just ran my 5D3 through EOSCOUNT.com and it read 1370. My file numbering is currently 1374. (I have taken 4 videos with my 5D3 thus far.) Looks like EOSCOUNT is right on the money.

Thank you. That's the info I was looking for. Shutter count is correct taken a little over 100 pics it was just weird seeing that the number of available shots kept changing on me. I've had the 50D and 7D and never experienced it. Thank you I was getting close to returning it. Now I can go shoot tomorrow to post results.

I never tried using auto-iso on my 40D and 7D. But I've started using it on the 5D3 so that's why I know the number-of-shot remaining can shift. But on your 50D and 7D, if you change iso to higher iso, you should notice a drop in number of shots available as well.

I've never used auto iso, but I am switching it from 400 to 8000 as I'm seeing it's capabilities first hand for the first time.

You should try it. I love it. Walking around the condo chasing my son. Got my aperture set and now I don't have to worry if my iso is too high/low for the variable lighting around the condo. I've set it so the minimum shutterspeed is 1/250s and let auto iso go to work. :lol:

Will do. So many features. Haven't even touched HDR yet and trying to set up the EyeFi card!

Chris.DG, for work I would pick the 24-70mm it gives you more options, 16-35 is very wide on a FF

I'm too poor to get a 85L II ;). I had the 135L before and for some reason, i just couldn't work with that focal length. Odd, i know. Optically i loved it but i just couldn't work with it. Kept getting frustrated. So right now my 35,50 and 85 kit feels fine for me right now.

For what it does optically, I would make it work:lol: but I honestly love it, especially on a FF where it's a true 135mm. There are a few special lenses out there and it's definitely one of them.

Does anyone know? Before I got a grip I simply laid my camera down when not in use and didnt turn the camera off, the battery would last for quite a while. Now I have two batteries and do the same thing and both batteries were drained today even though I hadnt hardly used the camera. Do I now need to power down my M3 when not in use?

hmm, strange. According to Canon, sleep mode is almost like it is powered off. I would assume the batteries should last in sleep mode with a grip as long as it would without a grip. I would charge both to 100% and try it again.

Okay, stupid question but, in camera HDR's can't be done with RAW files can they? i.e. spit out an HDR RAW composite that I can then take to LR?

Right. It uses the RAW files to generate a HDR .jpg. However, it still saves the RAW +/- shots so you can always import them into PS and make your own HDR.

Unless the camera's settings are setup to delete the underlying shots. There is the option in the menus to tell the camera to keep or trash the base shots which make up the HDR final composite.

The UT Tower shot a couple pages back......the lights in the windows appear to form the number one.


I've been flirting with getting a 135....just can't seem to like primes, though, for what I do.

Beautiful clouds. But I would expect the dark area to be a bit more brighter if it's HDR. I haven't played it with mine yet.
