Re: 6d display item

What if somebody wants opinion about CF/SD cards ? Is it allowed ?

 

I saw someone quoting Photoshop or lightroom softwares in one's signature.

 

Does Canon own (brand names omitted) these SD/CF card manufacturers/companies or Adobe ? Or should we just stick to Canon brand memory cards (if there are any at all)  and DPP softwares etc.

 

Or may be just use a Canon brand television set to view the pics and videos taken with a Canon camera.

 

I guess it is okay to mention without discussing in details to promote ?

 

No sure if I am correct. Please enlighten me.

Re: 6d display item

I think Waddizzle's comment about Magic Lantern is being misinterpreted. The reason most of us don't discuss ML isn't that Canon won't let us. It's that we don't use ML and don't know enough about it to discuss it intelligently or answer technical questions about it. And we're wary because if ML does somehow manage to damage the camera, Canon's warranty won't cover it. While that outcome may be very unlikely, nobody wants to take the risk of advising someone to do something that might cause him a financial loss.

You can ask for opinions on SD cards.  Many people here use them.  They will be quick to tell you stick to the major brands, and do not use the micro-SD cards with adapters.

 

You can ask for opinions on Magic Lantern.  Robert is correct.  Very few people around here use it.  Even fewer discuss it.  It's a third party add-on.  Canon is not responsible for guaranteeing that it works.

 

 People make similar complaints about third party strobes when they do not understand them.   Go find the third party web site or user group, and ask them about your strobes is my advice.  Consider yourself enlightened.

Unless a Mod steps in, we really don't know. Many times links have been scrubbed, but brands of SD cards (which Canon does not make) seem to be OK.

I think I know what I can post and what I am not supposed to discuss here in this forum.

 

My answer to the OP seemed to have offended some Canon defender here.

 

I just pointed out something that I have seen on the screen of  a camera with ML installed. I did not promote ML at all. Do not be sensitive and over-react to the two words.

 

I just point out a possibility and that is it. Pointing out a possibility isn't promoting something. Scan the lines and tell me what I have done wrong.

 

I agree that the MOD will judge and I believe in a fair manner.

 

There used to be some websites elsewhere with Cyberbullying. People pretend to be experts and tried to dominate opinions and scarce people away. When came across subjects that they do not know, they just shut you down or humiliate you.

 

This forum is, however, a useful place for inexperienced/experienced camera users to find answers and to share their experience. Please be kind, helpful and less offensive. We need an enviroment with politeness and manner. Not everybody knows everything. right ?

 

BTW, "Very few people around here use it.  Even fewer discuss it" doesn't mean pointing something about it is not advisable.

 

.

 

Finally, I consider myself not enlightened yet.

Re: 6d display item

I don't see that anyone was offended they said:

"If you're having trouble with Magic Lantern, then you're pretty much on your own around here.  We don't use it, or discuss it."

 

You were right to point out that the number and percentage was an ML thing, but that is probably about as far as it should go. I see it like discussing jailbreaking iPhones on an Apple forum.

Yeah, you may be right. I will go through the lines and rephrase my post.

 

Thank you.
