It was on and outside for about 3 hours, it's showing 0 received satellites, was showing that the whole time. On the other hand my GP-E2 had a positon within 1 minute when it was brand new. Also the WiFi logo shows up in the display even though it's turned off, gps just blinks ...

A cold lock should take 20-30 minutes max, assuming it wasn't moving. I see you're in Las Vegas so you probably aren't in the man-made canyons like in NYC, Chicago, and some other cities.
GPS blinking indicates it doesn't have a lock, if it's like the 7D2; it shows solid when locked.

Sorry to hear you're having issues with your new toy. Hope they make things right quickly!

I probably won't be able to get it sent off until next week, and I suspect I'll then be without it for a week, but it's the right thing to do for peace of mind.

On the same subject, I stuck my phone camera into the viewfinder on both cameras and snapped the image below. Nothing we don't already know, but it shows the subtle increase in the height spread of the 5D4 AF points. Clearly I was a bit sloppy with the 5D4 image as it's slightly blurred.

I also did a quick test of the shutter sounds. I have a recording but it's easy to just describe: in normal (single shot) shooting the 5D4 is a bit more muted/damped. Probably the same sort of overall volume, but lacking the high frequency "snap" of the 5D3.

In silent shooting they're very similar. Maybe the 5D4 isn't quite as quiet, but it's so close that it isn't a bit deal.

Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

I notice a whole lot less delay in silent mode. Shutter lag was pretty poor on the 5D3 in silent but I notice it to be snappy on 5D4

I assume you can still turn on the grid in the viewfinder, right? I'm assuming you just have it off on the MKIV.

Yes you can. And the new viewfinder level is really cool too!

Yea - I haven't got round to copying all the settings across yet.

I did replicate my "My Menu" settings - rather tedious at it orders the list by the functionality pages. An option to order alphabetically would be useful - much easier to find "M" for Mirror Lockup, rather than scrolling through and trying to remember roughly where it is in the order of the menu tabs.

Further to my earlier post - I've done a bit more testing, and there's definitely an issue whereby the left side bank of cross type points has a tendency to significantly front focus (vs all the other points). Whether that's affecting the non-cross type points wasn't conclusive, but the left cross type points definitely have a problem.

I'm wondering if I'm going to be the first guy to send in a 5D4 for repair :oops:

sorry to hear you got problem too mate, i'll be dropping my off today with all my L's :(

Boy I wish someone at Canon would actually use the camera once in a while LOL. Seems to me ANYONE trying to register their own "My Camera" settings (outside of the engineers) would make the same statement. A simple option to sort alphabetically would be great.

Hell, I wish there was a button in the menus -- like say I'm on "format card" and I could hit the * and it would ADD TO MY MENUS - that would be a great way to do it if you ask me.

They should hire a couple of software engineers from Samsung or Apple. Touchscreen is great but could be a lot better.

What else do you really need a touch screen on a camera to do? It's responsive and supports pinch to zoom/etc. Unless you're trying to play Words with Friends or something...

more responsive on the pinch zoom and also the swipe from image to image should be faster.

How do you push shadows 3 - 5 stops? Let's say I take a photo of a snowy mountain and expose the image for the snow. Everything that's not snow will be seriously under exposed. I don't think the LR "shadow" slider has more than a stop or so of range. If I just bump up exposure 3 stops, then the mountain becomes to bright. So how do I brighten just the shadows?


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

I think I'm likely #3 (one other report on this thread I believe, and another on a third party website). Small beans in terms in numbers really, but somewhat annoying.

I'm sorting out a return to my nearest service centre. The good news is that they've been able to arrange pick up for a small fee - the last time I sent gear (a 5D3 and a 70-200) the courier quotes were insane because of the level of insurance required.

That was my guess. Hopefully it'll be feasible for them to fix it. My experience with their work on the 70-200 (and service on my 5D3) was very positive, so I'm assuming that a hand tweak by a Canon tech will likely get a better result than taking the gamble of just returning the body and getting another one. At least... I hope...

Canon CPS isn't #1 for a reason. I'm sure they'll get it right.

If the techs are able to get it right. Hopefully it isn't a design flaw that can't be remedied by expert techs
