So true, I'm coming back for the third and final time!!

I sold both of my beloved 5D classics and regretted every moment. I do appreciate the 1D series I own, but there's just something about the 5Dc. Now I'm back to having two of these babies in mint condition! :D

Somehow, I missed this one before - very nice mood/tone.

I read somewhere that a minus 1 exposure compensation is needed for the 5D...
have most of you found this to be correct....thanks....J​oe

For shooting in one of the auto modes? Haven't shot in anything but manual in years, but I can't say that I recall it consistently over-exposing by a stop. I mean, it was never exactly where I wanted it, which is why I originally went to M, but I think that I would have noticed something as simple as always being over.

Bill, I should have said "in one of the other modes, A or P".
When I shoot in manual, the exposure compensation feature is disabled on my 5D.
Thanks for your response, Joe

Okay, that's what I figured - I used to shoot primarily in Av, so that's the context of my "if so, I never noticed it" answer.

Are you referring to people always saying "ETTR"? I've never understood why people say that.

It seems the thrust of what I read was that the 5D has a tendency to slightly overexpose a scene, and so to offset that, set the exposure compensation to a minus 1 setting. Frankly I forget to watch that (and it will be caught in post processing). But, just wondered if there was some validity to the suggestion of a minus 1 setting. Thanks everyone for your input. Joe

ETTR has to do with maximising the signal to noise ratio by exposing to the right and has nothing to do with any specific camera. Here's a link to an article that Jake wrote that explains it all: https://photography-on-the.net …p?t=744235&high​light=ETTR

Interesting read. I knew it was about all bodies, but I just find that slightly over exposing causes me to blow out highlights too often. My post processing skills arent good and I can never seem to get the photos looking correct. I find I get better results from bringing up shadows, and since all of my photos are web size, I never find a big problem with noise.

And the obligatory fireworks photos. These are with my sub $20 Promaster 19-35 lens.Lens is not good, but for web sized images it works perfectly with some sharpness and stopped quite a bit down! (no correction for distortion)

This first image is kind of scary. These are home done fireworks and every year a few dont fire as planned. This one went up and came back down. I saw it and knew that it was going to explode low to the ground. I hit the shutter and hoped that nothing bad happened. This is the image that I got. I would estimate about 10-15ft off the ground.

Been shooting with 5D Classic since autumn. Before it were 20D and 30D. I love the old camera. I do it commercially for some time already and it delivers so great results. Also 24-70/2.8 mounted on it. However, I miss my primes.

5Dc does not promise, it delivers. And if you give it also your photographic eye, results are awesome.
