I rented an EOS R (didn't check the shutter count) and shot some events nearly as important as a wedding with no issues. The benefits and experience with it made me forget about the card failure cloud over my head.

I know SD tech has improved over the years, but what about the 5Dc and 5D2? I'm sure the industry certainly used those and I'm curious what the card failure rate was, albeit CF cards.

I do fall into the 'better to have it and not need it, rather than need it and not have it' camp especially since we've had that taste on the 5D3 and 5D4 dual card slot security blanket.

Anxiously awaiting for other R versions!


40D and 17-55 to start things off! 10.2008
moved up to a 5dm2 4.2012

upgraded to 5dm4 12.2018
switching to R soon?

Well, I finally sold off my EF 85 1.2L II and will be awaiting a new RF 85 1.2L.

Meanwhile, figured I’d share a final (for now) image from the archives, in commemoration.

Control Ring settings

On my main EOS R body I have the control ring set to adjust ISO but it only does it when I half-press the shutter button. When trying to set up my second EOS R body today I went through both menus side by side to duplicate all my settings I can't seem to find where to make this adjustment for the control ring function. My second EOS R changes ISO every time I move the control ring and that's not good.

I'll dig through the manual tomorrow but wondered if anyone might know what I'm missing.

There are options for 1/2 press and no-press required.

Downward facing arrow = 1/2 press required.

Cheers

THANK YOU!!

I didn't even notice that there were two ISO options, I must have just grabbed the first ISO option I saw. No wonder I couldn't get it to work.


One time I was on the phone with CPS and asked about the option to save settings so the could be reloaded and they said this can be done on the 1D series but not on the 5D series. It sure would make things easier if they opened up this option for other bodies. At least I can save and load the IPTC metadata and copy that over, but being able to save and copy everything would be ideal.

Anyway, thanks again for your help.

I took the plunge, unboxed it today, had my first what the hell moment - the USB cable has the same tiny connector on both ends, instead of the larger one on one end for the USB port on the computer. Is that normal? Am I missing something? (literally or figuratively)

Curses. I have old cables around, but is this something you can buy some little adapter deal for, - smaller to larger connector size?

Thanks for the responses. I had a fit a little early. Old computer (this one) doesn't have that port, but the newer computer does have it, never noticed it until just now. I guess you don't see things until you need them.
