Can anyone guide me on how to set AI-Servo on the 5D? I did some research and did not find out how. Any help is appreciated.

On top of camera - press the 'AF-WB' button, turn the little wheel by the shutter button to change it.

Pay attention though, I tend to have a lot more OOF shots when I use AI servo - or try to use it. I also learned that if you're using a speedlite, the red focus beam will not operate when the camera is set to AI Servo.

Back button focus works really well when using AI Servo. And the 5D's center point is the most accurate. But then framing can be a problem.

I use the back-button and center point exclusively. AI Servo is still problematic for me though for some reason.

The old 5Dc cleans up nice. ISO 1600, in tungsten house light, dark, under-exposed by -2/3rds of a stop. Love those big pixels.

Very best,

I would love a 15MP sensor with today's tech.

Are Sony/Nikon colors known for being bad? I've only used Canon cameras.

'Studio' shots of not very cooperative chickens. That mom was so unhappy with us.

Preference more than anything. Gear coloration and preference is such a tricky thing - it's not something that you can determine by looking at other peoples work, it's something that you notice after working your own files and struggling to get things to look the way you imagined when your tripped the shutter. I had one guy (on a non-photography forum, but he's an "expert" none-the-less :rolleyes: ) tell me that my dislike of Sigma colors was baseless because he looked at some sample images online while doing some lens purchase research (he hadn't laid hands on one at that point).


Bill is my name - I'm the most wanted man on my island, except I'm not on my island, of course. More's the pity.

How did you get them to stay within the studio to get the shot?:-) Looks good.

Very best,


First off, that's 12mp(20% less resolution), not 15mp Second, I have no interest in Sony. I cannot stand their ergonomics, how it fits in my hand, and it's menu system. I understand the benefits of an EVF but do not like looking through it. The small amount of time I had the A7 in my hands I wanted to throw it against a wall. And why would I purposely go through that unpleasant learning curve? I realize Sony's sensors are god to many, I just can't stand it's form. Nothing against it, or any users, I just won't be buying one.

Anyone with low light night shots they want to share? Thinking of using this for wide field astro with a 24/1.4.
