I feel a little guilty for liking heavily cooked sunsets, but they look so amazing.

The second one almost looks like it should be the flag of a tropical country.

From what I've read, when you calibrate the sight it is in line with the single point in the middle of the frame... so you just kind of assume that AF is acquired? That's my guess.

I bought this and it was delivered yesterday. When the weather clears I'll get out and try it !

Above and slightly left of the sun, I see a circle. Is that sensor dirt/dust?

Oh god. That's still there, and doesn't move from the sensor cleaning and now I see it in a lot of shots. While shooting one of the sunsets, a message popped up about sensor overload. Did I make a very expensive mistake in assuming that one of the benefits of ML was being able to shoot sunsets safely?

Shoot me now.

:cry:

OK. This is the first thing that's really gotten my attention. I got past all the noise, but I shoot a LOT of sunsets and sunrises in the spring and summer. I really hope you keep us posted on this. Like I said, this one's thrown the alert button on. :(

I picked one up the other day. I've only had a few minutes to try it out so far but it looks like it has huge potential.

One thing to note is that you need to adjust the sight for different subject distances. I initially set it up for subjects in the distance but then when there was a flock of seagulls up close I found that I was shooting well below the birds.

Not a drama though. I suspect as you get used to it you'll either know to aim slightly above/below the dot or will just be able to dial in the adjustment of a number of clicks on the fly.

I was using it on a 7D ii. When using it with the seagulls up close it was possible to aim the camera at individual birds but still see the whole flock. It was so easy to move the camera to the most interesting bird at the time. I could still see the others so if the point of interest changed it was so easy to re-position the camera :-)

To be fair, none of my up-close shots were in focus but my aim was consistently 1/4 of a frame below the subject.

Are you guys kidding ?? … Welcome to cameras and dust :lol: :p:-D:oops: Dust spots are a fact of camera life.. Get your blower out and turn that camera upside down and gently give it a blowing.. works wonders  :p:lol::-P O and don't hit the sensor with your blower lol. If your not comfortable get someone else to do it.

Don’t forget that the lens could have dust and shooting at narrow ISOs can really enhance the appearance.

I believe this is cause for at least momentary pause for concern.

The concern is that the sensor was burnt by the sun. At least that's how I perceived it.

That's the way I read it also.

Ya I wish to just leave it on and go.. much like yourself… I have a normal plate on right now keeping the camera off things. I was wondering about taking the bottom portion and using just that. It looks like it unscrews. Im almost never vertical.. but when I wish to be it would be nice. If you find something I would be interested .

Its not something you could put on and leave… but it is interesting

Super… I'm waiting for evaluation….

On the dust spot…. I don't think the EOS R sensor is any different than any canon sensor in terms of shooting the sun rise and set.. That would be silly on canons part. Looks like normal dust to me.. I would be shocked if it was anything else.

Ahhhhhhhhhh I got my EOS-R today! Bought from my local store because they matched B&H's current offer (free adapter ring, bag, 64gb sandisk extreme card).

Now to decipher this thing.
