They couldn't do the same thing on the grip so thats why they omitted it. confusing having same button but different button when using grip.

Ahhhh. Interesting to know Talley. Thanks for that.

To me.... its the sum of all these little things along with the obvious upgrades that makes the 5d4 such a good upgrade.

People seem to focus on the headline items (4K and 30mp for example) and overlook all the smaller things that make an item great.

Completely agree. It is too easy to tear down a camera with charts or making component vs component comparisons. Ultimately you need the camera that you can rely on and gets the job done. For me the 5D4 checks more boxes than I need. Heck, I'd be happy with the 5D4 firmware running on a 5D3. Everything else beyond that is just a bonus.

I'll be getting mine tomorrow.

Kinda out there question... Is there a safe way to use the camera as a webcam when tethered? I know in the past there were programs to do this but they supposedly allowed the camera to get hot.

I don't think that there is any communication between the lens and body about whether IS is enabled on the lens, so IBIS and lens IS combined could be a problem. I would think that blind double-stabilization is worse than none at all.

na it will disable IBIS and use the lenses IS. works like that on sony

Maybe Sony thought ahead, and included the necessary information in their communication protocol.

Quick question.

What do you guys find the best way to adjust exposure compensation in Manual mode. In other words, how do you set up your camera?

I just hit the Q button and adjust it on the screen....very quick to do.

That's a good point.

How did you do it in the past? Shot bracketed shots I imagine.

I guess because I shoot people mainly, I do not run into those sorts of problems. Or if I did, I just didn't shoot them.

Yea, bracket and blend.

Annoyingly, not long before I got the 5D4 I did a portraiture shoot in a similar sort of environment, and there was a decent shot of someone standing just outside a doorway (well lit) and I wanted to get some detail on the inside of the door archway. In the moment I forgot to bracket, so the subject was well exposed but I couldn't pull anything (that you'd want to look at) from inside the arch. Given what I've seen from the 5D4, it would have just pulled it off.

No DSLR on the market is capable of capturing an image with enough detail in the deep shadows in that type of scene to make the heavily processed image look marketable. If you want decent quality in the end product you need to bracket (or 'shop in another scene to the windows)

Depends on the amount of DR in the scene. In the shot I posted in https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=17714789 a camera with a 2 stop DR advantage over the 5D3 would have given a single capture with (I suspect) sufficiently acceptable shadow detail.

For really wide DR scenes then agreed; bracket required. Even a D810 isn't a panacea.


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

The replacement camera is better than the last one but I am still disapointed with the results when I use my 500f4...I am really struggling to get sharp shots of subjects(large deer etc) that are a reasonable distance away (100 meters or so) If I shoot birds or squirrels in my garden it is not an issue...
I love the extra features on the 5D4 but with hindsight I would have saved myself £3000 and kept with my 6D..

Don - Man. I'm sorry to hear this. I thought you had the 500 issue figured out. I've seen a few of your pictures recently and they look great but as is typical, they may not represent the entire story. I can't see why the 5D4 would give you results vastly different from your 6D. Do you have a local camera store? Maybe you can walk in and use a demo 500 to see if results are different?

Have you tried shooting with live view and DPAF? Sorry I haven't been following all the discussions. I'm just starting to move toward mirrorless and it popped into my head.

Sorry to hear that.

without rehashing the whole thing, the problem just seems odd.

I'm sorry but 1/250th will not freeze images on a 500mm lens. 1/1000th is the minimum I'd try with the 5D4 pixel density.
