Nothing wrong with a collection of them. I had a friend who had about 15 cameras in a display, most were film but he had quite a few digital too from Canon and Fuji.


Sony Alpha A7III - Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 - Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro

Just out of curiosity for your workflow. Do you delete photos from the card, or format after getting them on your computer? I have this card as well (I got mine on 1/9) and only format it. The only time I've ever had a card failure was on my 6D when using MagicLantern and it would "format" the card by deleting all contents except for what it needed to keep. This happened about 3 times before I realized that was the issue.

By the way, this never happened on my 6D, which has one card slot, during heavy usage like a wedding or event, and the times it did, I put in a new card and moved on.

I'm not a formatter. Maybe once a year. I don't delete from camera either. Card goes in, then out to a card reader. Copy to PC then delete files from card.
I have never had a 'logical' card failure but I have had 2 physical failures of Lexar SD cards (case splits and card no longer works).

Years ago I would replace cards more often as they became larger and cheaper. I have used the same method of card use since around 2005. My 1D4 cards have been used like that for about 5 years.
7D2 went 2 years with the same cards (2 new cards bought with camera) without issue.

My point 1000%- glad it was not a card failure....what would you do if it was ??? Your screwed for paid work.

LOL. I thought to myself, if this is a card failure Mike's gunna wear out his keyboard. :-P
If it had of been a card failure it would have been perfect timing, during the first shots of the day and of one of the most common birds there are.

If I was using the R for paid work I would now be feeling a little nervous. Google does not find anyone else reporting Error 2 for the R.

That is a cool shot! I've been looking to maybe get one. Is it darker when holding it, but not translating to the photo? Like the real moon, though the sky is darker, you can get away with a faster shutter speed, lowering the ISO and maybe upping the flash output for the red background to get it to pop more. I've seen other photos of them where the dark spots are more noticeable, so I'd try that before returning this one.

Sounds good and I look forward to seeing what the new moon looks like! I agree that this cooler tone suits the moon more and seeing the blood red color would have been interesting too.

I have to say I found it funny when I seen you got this body as I remember when I had the 550D which feels like a lifetime ago and I've had 3 bodies since but you are still using the same ones up until now with the EOS R. It's impressive, I wish I wasn't consumed with GAS like you as I could save a lot of money haha



Here is the new one.. Its a bit smaller but you can see what i mean about the dark spots.. I recommend this one product link in here

https://www.amazon.com …00__o00_s00?ie=​UTF8&psc=1 (external link)

New looks to be a true 3d printed moon notice the print lines going across and mostly notable in the dark spots

Old one seems to made by a mold (no print lines)

Ill try to take a shot with the R tonight

I'm about to take the R on my first vacation. Vacation photography is one of my favorite times for photography. Nothing terribly exciting location wise on this trip - we've been to all these ports in the Caribbean before. I'm thinking 16-35, 24-105 and 100-400 and either the RF 35 or the M6+22mm. I can't see bringing the 28-70 over the 24-105 or a 70-200 over the 100-400. Can't wait for the trip!!!

We are going to Hawaii in a couple months, looking forward to taking the R as well. I’m thinking I might have the Tamron 15-30mm f2.8 by then. If not, it will be the EF 11-24 F4L, the RF 24-105mm, and probably the 100-400mm and a TC. Will see how well it does Milky Way...

I just had a noob moment.. I just found out you can change the ISO (and other things) right off the M.Fn button above the shutter release lmao. All these settings are just a click away and not a touch and swipe away. The more I use this camera the more I feel its more mapped out like the 550d. The 550d has a dedicated ISO button almost in the same area. This makes the touch bar in the back of the R much more useless for me. Idk what to set the touch bar with that is useful for me.. Damn it
