New Fv mode.... :eek: outstanding. Until I find a quicker way, this is how I'm running this camera.

Oh, and double-tapping to zoom in and out on photos is extremely useful.

.... cute but he wore out his welcome here..

I trapped a squirrel once because his nest was making a mess on my urban lawn. What, did he try to break into your house??

Welp! I got it! Just spent the last couple of hours figuring out the menu and customizing it. The manager at Henry’s gave me the difference for the control ring adapter, so I’m pretty stoked about that. I’ve read that depending on the store they’d make you buy it separately even though the regular adapter came with it. I’ll be out in the morning testing it out :lol:

In the end I think they claim your home as their own. Every time I remove one from the yard its because they have decided that they own everything in the yard.

Thats my number one wildlife rule... stay wild and live in the bush or I move them back far enough that they get the message. This one I moved across the road.. Yes he's only a few hundred yards but he will stop thinking my house is his to do what ever he likes lol This is number 2 this fall..

You have to be careful though... get rid of one and you get two to replace it..

Henrys gave me the Control ring as well back on Black Friday

I'm not sure what she is trying to say ......

I am under the impression that these ladies just hang outside your home waiting for their photos to be taken :-P

Well... lol That could be said about every animal in Canada  :p:-D... I do have a large...... what would you say.... Mmm group of animals that call where I live their home as well. If your outside enough they get to know and see you around and that gives them a more relaxed attitude for my images of them.. same goes for just about every animal around... thus the reason I get so many images of many animals up close.. I use to joke about a critter magnetic in my camera but really its just time in the same bush. These young ones were born this last spring and I never saw them until now.. but their mothers convey a more relaxed attitude toward me so they do the same.. And yet if others come in the yard say a friend they are way more on edge and liable to run. so they can and do recognize us as individuals..

This is using the 70-300L with the 1.6 crop... which is something I have wished for for many years... The 70-300L can not be used with the canon extender as the rear element will hit the extender. so the in body crop ands to the usefulness of the 70-300L . I find that a plus...

Good choice on the control ring adapter, I’m thinking that’s the missing piece for me now.

Alright. My first share. My goal this morning was to get some BIFs, but the ones that I saw were too far. I quickly learned not to spray and pray with BIFs. Anyway, I am very happy with the uploads!

I spent the last day trying out all of my lenses on the R, and getting a feel for the camera. Still a lot of overload due to how much customization is possible. No AFMA.. I’m still in disbelief.

I have to say that the image quality is slightly different than that of the 5D4; not better or worse, just different in some way.

Today, got the Control Ring Adapter, and I now feel better knowing ISO, Aperture and Shutter are each independently assigned to a dial. I just haven’t been able to get used to the Function Bar for ISO.

Traveling for Christmas tomorrow, and here’s what’s in the bag (Tenba Solstice 21L):

Canon EOS-R
Canon EF 50L
Canon 100-400II + 1.4xIII
Fuji X100F
430EX-RT + ST-E3-RT Transmitter

I hate to post up issues because I'm not someone who goes out looking for problems; you won't find me intentionally underexposing photos and pushing sliders 10 stops in posts, blathering on about micro contrast, etc.... that's clown stuff. If I run into an issue, it's during normal use that one would encounter while going about their day.

Anyways, ran into some banding in a few photos from last night. Shooting in my living room, light coming from Hue lamps. It sort of looks like flicker from incandescent lights, but I think i had the anti-flicker on because I was shooting my Christmas tree a few frames prior. Anyways, I haven't seen it in any other photos, and at this point don't think it's a big deal, but I will be keeping an eye out for it while shooting in lower light situations. Noise at 12,800 is so well controlled though, this sensor is nice to work with.

That is what I saw when trying silent shutter at 1/160th. Turned off silent shutter and is was gone. Someone said the shutter speed was too fast for all the rows of the sensor to record the same amount of light. That was my interpretation anyway.
