Thanks. Yes that was Live view at 20 fps in full silent mode

When you hand-hold with live view, do you use the hoodman kit? Seems like that might make it a bit more stable than just holding camera far enough away to see the screen.


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

I asked the same question earlier on, and you guessed it.

Here is my live view setup, really helps to use the 20 fps and the wonderful full silent mode.

Indeed. I was afraid that it would be "choppy" (interrupted) and what not. Wasn't expecting the AF-squares to track that fast at all. I don't have any personal experience with Sony's mirrorless offerings so I'm not sure if this is comparable/better/wors​e. But color me impressed. :D

For Sony, I';ve only watched the videos as well, not shot them, but this is looking a lot like an a9 from here.
I think the Case 1 prevented it from truly being "a9-like", but it sure looks like Case 2 would have it right there.

The fact that it went fro the ball at critical moments leads me to believe that the concerns it would ONLY work on human faces is unwarranted. It sure looks like it will track a bird too! :)

With luck, next weekend I will be able to confirm.
For now, my first shoot with it is tomorrow night, live theatre, dark lighting! :)

Very well done!! Do you have a blind set at the waters edge to get the great water level shots?

No blind at all. I sometimes lay down flat or kneel down and use my knee for support.

Now that I had a few more outings. I can say the AF is improved in both the OVF and Live View over the 1dx Mark II. For the most part it just stays with the bird. I see no lag at all like the Eos R. Silent mode is just outstanding. I used the 200-400mm yesterday again at F11 for 1120mm and it locks on, amazing really. Losses some detail but to be expected. I believe my 400mm does not even know the 2x is on it. AF is very fast with the extenders. I do feel this is by far the best upgrade to a camera I have seen/used in a while.

Interesting, I must be doing something wrong. You hardly see any waterfowl shots in my collection because they leave the scene long before I get anywhere near the edge of the water to compose a shot, and I consider myself pretty dang stealthy.

In the spring where there is no ice, than they never come close. Now we have ice with open pockets of water they tend not to fly away. They usually move far away as they can but the ice stops them. I wait them out and they usually do not care I am there and will swim closer. Somedays they just fly :cry:. Not selling the camera but the full silent is awesome when they are close. They do not get skittish at all if I do not move.

What would you say the average distance is to the birds? Maybe they are further then it looks but ducks are usually more wary at least where I am if you are not hidden they will not come very close.
Thanks

I did not finish reading the thread so it looks like you have answered my previous question. Once again, well done. Looks like I need to make a trip to Rhode island :-)

Has anyone had an experience with the Camera Crashing/Restarting yet, when shooting in Live View and Bursting?
I do wonder if its a bug since I was experimenting with the reduced shutter lag option on the camera/settings. I will have to test.

I also had the lens stop focusing/had to restart the camera twice, and again, not sure if that's just me, or random firmware bugs.


With that said, it was alot of fun to shoot with it yesterday, shooting Eagles flying around like crazy, and also tracking brown Owls flying extremely far away, against a brown background and it could hit it. The Live View Auto-Detect/Full Sensor AF even was able to follow the owls very well, until they dove down into the brown grass sometimes. Which I don't blame because you can barely even see it with your eye.

Holy crapola..Im super impressed as well

I use the 1Dx2 not for speed but more for AF systems and accuracy....For wedding work its just great. In the 4 yrs I have had it, it has never missed a bride walking in during the processional or walking out of a ceremony....Unless i did something wrong...its really impressive to just put it in servo and to know that camera is not going to miss/drop a shot. Im really spoiled by the camera technology and I can tell you that the 5D4 and the EOS R do not perform nearly as well....zero misses v/s a few on the other bodies speaks volumes as to what the 1D AF systems can do......If the R5 can perform better than a 5D4 I think many will buy regardless of price....wedding photographer dont need speed but having a reliable accurate AF system that doesn't drop shots is highly desirable v/s taking 10 shots and hoping 2 or 3 are usable and in focus.....we all know what Im talking about here........This is going to be huge with canons new mirrorless line up...especially when its dark and low ambient....Its going to be about how well the AF works as compared to what the 1Dx3 is capable of.....how much is canon going to let fall on the EPS R5 camera ???? Huge question to be answered

I have the luxury of being able to wait and compare. Im down until May with a broken leg so Im now marketing for the fall for weddings and studio opening

If Canons mirrorless cameras have Good AF systems that work in the dark thats the way for me to go. If they still dont perform than I will get this 1Dx3 in the fall

Truly impressed with this update
