My wife and I (married 41 years) both love that photo. Thanks for sharing.


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

If I set my camera to for example single AF point, and then program AF-ON or * button to switch to small zone AF when it's pressed (with the detail settings you reach by pressing INFO button), the viewfinder still shows the AF point configuration as single point.

However, if I program the M-Fn2 button to the AF<-> function, and inside there set it to small zone, then the AF point display in the viewfinder changes to small zone when the button is pressed.

I thought this was an error, but now I realized that it's because you can't combine using a registered AF point and activating a different point selection scheme with AF-ON or * buttons. The manual even says so. I'm not really sure why they did it like this, but it's obviously intended.

I don't usually photograph small birds but I'm happy to make an exception for these...

Interesting to see that a few other 1DX MKII users are experiencing lock ups that require a battery pull when using bigger primes for high paced sports etc on other forums the same as i had experienced shooting superbikes.


I Have experienced this a few times this year. had to pull battery, Whats up with this

Glad you made the exception. Great shots!

Okay guys n girls - Since I first got the mk2 at the end of May there has been a few oil / dust spot issues, I put it down to new camera etc. etc. I have been cleaning my own sensors for a long time but this one has me beat, never use the same wet swab twice. . . . just used 8 yes 8 and there is still spots.

Have emailed CPS about a priority clean (another shoot this weekend) but just curious has anyone else had this? you would think with a body costing THAT MUCH this wouldn't be happening.

Cheesed of from Essex

I had dust spots/whatever on my sensor from new, out of the box.
I left the auto clean on from day one and it has cleaned itself after about 6k shots.
Maybe I was lucky.

Normally it's not that visible BUT as soon as you start with the slow speed panning stuff they stick out like a sore thumb. Will see what CPS come back with.
