Yes, that is a great shot, Perry. The bird is wonderfully perched. Just perfect. Congrats.

Speaking of Snowy Owls. A few years ago we had one at one of our most northern little islands and it made the national news. But this month we've had I don't know how many sightings, 6 or 7 or so. One even here in the city of Amsterdam! Quite exceptional.

Hey 5Ders! It's been a while!

I've been bringing the 5D out every weekend in 2014 to shoot this year's record snowy owl numbers.

Got the money shot today - been trying to get a shot like this for years! More on my flickr (external link).

AF is not brilliant with the 50 1.8 in general, though, and calibration on that lens may be off, too. When you say that the camera has trouble focusing, do you mean that the focus is off, or that the camera hunts for focus a lot? Do you get this even when shooting center-point only?

Hmmm. No problem focusing if the subject is not that far sorry can't explain in detailed, I'll back on this thread to post some sample.

I think the software is no longer compatible. This means you cannot download pics from cam to laptop. Also not possible to acces and change camera settings with eos utility. This is not a big deal Though because the settings can be changed in cam and you can download your pics to the laptop using a card reader. That's the way I do it. Basically the way you use your camera (downloading pics and accessing and changing settings) is altered but it still is a great camera considering today's price

:-) :-) :-) :-)

Try starting up EOS Utility first, then plug in the cable, then turn on the camera. EOS Utility will shut down and after a few seconds start up again and you can download the images. At least that's how I got it to work here, on a Mac Pro. :)

I like the wide angle, I need a friend to try a shot like that of myself.
I am behind the photo too often.

Took my 5Dc to the park today with a roughly 20 year old Tokina 28-70mm 2.8 ATX-Pro on it to see what that combo could do. I wasn't intemding to track any flying birds with a focal length of 70mm and the classic, but after a while one flew by from my right to my left and I thought I'd see what the ol' classic could do with the "ancient" auto focus. I was pleasantly surprised, as I swung the camera around, got the center point on the bird's head and it acquired focus right away. Having seen some of the surfing shots in this thread, maybe I shouldn't have been surprised. I wasn't even on Servo. So, with such a short focal length, I thought they came out fairly well. They BIF's are cropped to get the bird a little closer. The second and third shots are of the flying bird.

On the main menu, if you scroll down to "Communication" make sure you select "Print/PTP" instead of "PC Connect".

Thanks for the advice, tried it, didn't work. :( I'll just wait a few days for the CF card reader. BTW I am using the latest EOS Utility and I am running it on Windows 8.

Some days ago I blowed the fuse of my main EOS 5D - I has made a lens setup that shortend the mount contacts. The fuse blow, and the camera didn't work again.
I got a new fuse - but four times as large as the original one. After disassembly of the camera I saw that I could not solder this. But a friend of mine perfomed some soldering magic and after assembly (which need several iterations to have all ribbon cables correct in the connector) it works again :-)
Very happy to have my manual focus camera working again!
