    Probably because of the false advertising. No matter how hard you try you will never shoot more than 50fps with it.
    Also the in camera information lies. It says 50 shots at 195 fps in .26 seconds....

    :) That cute comes with allot of work. I made the mistake of taking two of these babies home and they are twice the work.

    The bird on a perch was the first thing I thought of. One of the photos I...

    Way ahead of you, I was already on it.

    50 shots taken at a single click at 195 fps. When I selected the 195 it said 1/2 second worth of photos. Shooting L + RAW writing to two cards I had about 4...

    For Grandparents the R5 is a great camera. With extended family I have 17 of those subjects and 1 great one so I am somewhat experienced in that area.

    That one is really face or head focus. I did a little reading about how it works a few weeks ago. When it can not find an eye it hunts for a face.

    I did go out and try the R5 last night now that...

    I have to say that if I were just taking people photos that the R5 has been amazing.

    You mention birds, it would has been great at portrait distance like many that you excel at. How did it hold...

    15 fps vs 12 fps mechanical.

    Looking at the specs I see nothing of interest. $1799 for the 7D II at release, it would be $2,221 adjusted for inflation. Canon priced it at $1499, the R7 isn't at...

    What many people miss when they are speculating about a new 1 series is that it is limited by the processor speed and there are just certain things Canon wants the camera to do. Some of those things...

    According to the specs the R3 AF at EV -7.5. Both the 1Dx III and the R5 say AF at EV -6. If we believe in the spec fairy the R3 should do better in low light, sometimes the spec fairy doesn't...

    I think the longer it takes to get an R1, the more likely it isn't several thousand more than the R3. If we see one soon it may have significant separation.

    I had trouble with the R5 focusing on tight areas with spot AF with good light. What I checked I would give the R3 a slight edge over the R5. I started to check it last night at dusk on the lab pups,...

  19. Rolling Shutter and Shutter Speed / Is there a comparison

    With the R3 coming on Wednesday I have been giving thought to the 30 fps and the effects of the Rolling Shutter.

    My thought is that just like IS is described by the number of stops, the...
