Beautiful shots. But, on this side of the pond, we don't have that holiday...we do have Labor Day, though. (And the inability to spell properly) ;-)a

Ah, but it was your holiday I was celebrating as I had the day off! (I just spelled it correctly ;-)a)

I recently upgraded to the 1D X MKII, what an amazing camera, I couldn't be happier. I took this photo at the Ringwood Botanical Gardens in NJ. I'd appreciate any input or advice.

Update 30/08/2020
Well still continues to play up, example at my last race meeting - a lull in the racing so focused on a bunch of poppy's about 2mtrs away, as I took the shot I heard a car approaching so lifted camera up / pressed BBF and nothing, no focus not even trying, moved to the barrier a little closer and it locked, moved up to car and locked on. . . . . whilst panning I made sure that everything was exactly the same for 20 shots - same technique / speed / button pressed and released at the same time, got 2 keepers! (tried with a couple of different lenses)

After a few messages back n forth with CPS UK they suggested that I send the body into Elstree to get the af unit cleaned and serviced (didn't realise it was a separate unit) especially as I have not had the camera serviced since I bought it in 2017. So it's gone off to be quarantined for a couple days before they look at it - fingers crossed this fixes the issue (do love my mkII) will let you know the outcome.

.DAVID.

Final update 12-09-2020
Body went off to CPS Elstree last week, after a couple of days quarantine they did their magic and sent it back, managed a quick walk by the river this morning just to test it and everything seems to be back to normal, did a couple of focus tests i.e. focused on the floor a couple of meters away then lifted unit up to capture bird way in the distance and it locked on right away, also managed a grab shot of a few Canadian Geese flying in with manic background and it locked on and tracked well. Real test will be in a couple of weeks at the next race meeting BUT I would say the guys sorted the issue out. AF unit cleaned and calibrated auto focus to specification plus sensor clean and check. £105 - happy with that!

Nothing special just a few test shots:

Happy for you that it's sorted. Sometimes a wee trip to Canon does the trick!

Hello, I have a question regarding the “Same Exposure for New Aperture Setting” menu. I think I understand what it is supposed to do in manual mode. If you change the aperture, the shutter and ISO change to make sure you have same exposure across your images. Is that correct?

If I’m at f2.8 and shutter at 1/60. When I go to f4 shouldn’t the shutter drop to 1/30 with this menu setting to maintain the same exposure?

The INFO states "... if the aperture value is changed by switching lenses, adding an extender, or zooming." So doesn't apply to normal aperture changes.

Idx2 is still the best camera I have ever used

Im in no rush to buy an R5. Not sure why everyone thinks mirrorless going to significantly improve my photography. 1D series seems to do just fine

Not as sharp as I would have liked, but not too bad, at least I think, lol.

Not sure who thinks that. I've not seen anyone saying that.
