    Joel, that's got to eat the battery. Essentially continuous shooting to memory while the shutter is half pressed, throwing away the oldest ones to make room for the newer ones, and writing them out...

    @HD Black is tough on AF. For the pup, to help put some context around your focus rate, I'm curious which lens, and rough distance to subject when it had trouble. If the missed shots were start or...

    Were there any new features in the R7 that may be seen a "public beta" for an R1 feature? I've literally seen no mention of the R7/R9 launch on our forum, and I've not sought out any R7 vs R3/R5...

    Danny:

    I love the concept of the first shot, with the window framing, but the strong foreground blur breaks it, IMO.

    The second shot looks like an illustration from an old children's story. ...

    The part of this that is confusing is that we know from HSS requirements for the flash that for a shutter speed over 1/250s, the shutter open and shutter close overlap. You need multiple rapid...

    Greats shots, but I don't think those are actually the same male.

    Hard to say for sure in the low on-target pixel count of the first shot, but the forehead striping looks different. I see neither...

    Fast Glass, re my noise comments. You'll noticed I didn't say the FF high MP cameras had a noise issue. I haven't got images (or the inclination) to check. But Canon definitely created a noise...

    I didn't vote, as I'm hardly shooting these days, but slclick's comment inspired me to write my own journey.

    First week goes to "First Light". Congrats Johnathan.

    Nice shot Brant, but the Jonathan's larger splash of color, reflection, and more varied and interesting framing puts him over the top.

    Even if not resolvable via a quick home fix, Canon will fix it out of warranty, it just won't be free. I think 10 years ago they had a minimum repair fee of $250. No idea what that fee is today,...

    Check your AF setup. I think Canon usually defaults to Servo bursts using Shutter Priority, then Focus Priority, so the first shot is taken when you press the shutter, focussed or not (okay for...

    A grab on market share during a rare Canon mount change, when pros might consider replacing a lot of glass with the new versions as they release, along with a body change. Smart move.

    I have no idea what the speed is on the Z9. When I mentioned the flash speed above, I meant historically for Canon it's been 180-250, with 250 on the higher end bodies, and I was also under the...

    That's similar to the max shutter rate when using a flash, so similar to full open/full closed shutter timing... but faster shutter speeds tend to start the closing cycle before the opening cycle is...

    It's a good thing it has good high-ISO handling, because it seems Canon is really pushing slow glass in the RF mount. They've got 600 f/11, an 800 f/11, a 100-500L f/4.5-7.1, and now their 100-400...
