p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 5D3 Owners :: Ever seen this issue?


I shoot with dual 5D3's. Each camera has 2 cards - both storing mRAW's.

During a wedding a week ago, one of the cameras switched from mRAW / mRAW to small JPG / mRAW.

I didn't realize it until after I got home - thankfully the second card had mRAW's on it because all the family formals were captured as small JPG's on my primary card!

I switched lenses right before the formals so I'm wondering if this caused the in-camera switch to sJPG/mRAW.

I switched lenses again for a ring shot at the end of the night...and ONLY small JPGs were stored - mRAW copies were NOT written to the second card.

I know for a fact that I didn't switch file size settings at any time.

Has anyone else seen this issue after switching lenses on the 5D3??

Do you use the C1-C2-C3 settings. You may have had them custom set by accident under those functions.

This. The custom banks have their own image quality assignments, and make sure under the custom settings you have it set to "auto learn" or whatever.

Hmmm....thanks for the heads-up. I didn't intentionally move the dial...maybe I did it accidentally. I really hope that's what happened - I'm a little freaked out by this!

That said, I shot another wedding this past weekend and everything worked flawlessly. I changed lenses a few times and then checked the file settings after each change.

We haven't seen anything like this on either of our 5DmkIII's.

Yea, sounds like you did not register a C1/2/3 mode. Set those to mRAW and register them so they retain that memory.

The 5d3 had a locking dial on the top so I would guess it's not that easy to move it on accident. My guess is as follows: The "Q" button on the back of the camera just above the jog dial..if you press that it automatically puts you in the mode of swapping image quality and all you have to do is rotate the dial (on the back of the camera)to cycle through all of the image quality choices. Pressing the "Q" button again confirms to the new setting. Perhaps the button was pressed and the dial moved a few clicks changing your setting.

How do you accidentally move the dial on 5DIII. It's with a lock and you can't just do it "accidentally"

Here's a list of issues I am having with my 5DIIIs.


Occasional double shots in single shot mode
No light confirmation upon shutter press
Slow writing speeds to 133 and 400x cards.
Corrupt RAW files
CF card light is ON for 1 minute at times
CF card light is ON for 10 seconds a lot of times
Camera lock downs with inability to use it,unless battery is reset.
Error messages
2 corrupt Transcend CF cards -->133 and 400X(I think it's camera's fault...)
cameras sometimes still can't keep synced times still after the last firmware update
Slower focus acquisition in dark areas that is worst than 5DII
Missing Images
Missing RAW images while Jpegs on SD are present...
Slow wake up times with 580exII flash
Time/Date reset after a battery was taken out for 48 hours

This is my biggest issue with the camera...it's way worse than my mark II was.

I don't see this at all. I find the 5D3 focus in the dark better than the 5D2 overall.

The thing that bugs me the most is the focus point not illuminating during focus. They've apparently fixed this in the latest 1Dx firmware....hope it trickles down to the 5D3.

Are you saying this because it isn't perfect for everyone who purchase it or some specific "problem" noted within this thread?

I'm saying this because nearly every 5D3 owner has had some concern with the camera. I understand it's a tool, but it seems to be plagued with issues. And yes, I understand there is room for user error. I'm mainly looking at numerously mentioned physical issues across the wide spectrum.

just a sanity check .... say 5,000 are sold .... 50 people have issues. = .01%

if 10,000 have been sold .... 75 complaints = .0075%

I am not a canon authorized re-seller/dealer and i don't have specific numbers...

maybe 50,000 shipped and 1,000 bad apple = .02%

just sayin'....

Just to clean up your math a bit...

50 of 5,000 is 1%...not .01%

75 of 10,000 is .75%

1k of 50k is 2%

Obviously, you are just making numbers up which is fine, but from what I had heard, there are many people with various issues with the camera (such as what Dimitri posted)

Even if 1% of people are experiencing similar problems, such a significant defect percentage in the eyes of a manufacturing process unacceptable. My guess is the percentage is higher than 1%, but that is for the statisticians to cuss and discuss.
