While researching the 5D (almost committed) I discovered this, from Michael Reichmann's site, and thought is would be useful to share - see

http://www.luminous-landscape.com/essays/5​d-gotcha.shtml (external link)

I haven't copied any of the text in order to respect his copyright. Basically, the custom C setting is restored after an auto power-off, even if you've changed something in the meantime and the camera has simply powered down. This could be a real pain if you expect your most recent settings to be there when you next press the button.

Unless as part of your "C" settings you set Auto Power Off to "OFF", or to a suitably long period of time. This has been a very popular complaint. It's only a problem for people who don't take the time to read the manual and think about what the various settings on the camera actually do.

The favorite retort of the complainers is that if you set Auto Power Off to Off you'll run down the batteries. Those of us who consider the cost of the body vs. the cost of batteries find this rather humorous. I'm sure we'll be hearing about this crisis for the next several years.

I would expect to see this changed in a firmware upgrade.

I haven't tried the "C" setting yet. I shoot about 95% of the time in AV.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.
