Holy Smoke

Does no one shoot video with a 1Dx? Am I the only guy who shoots video with a 1Dx? Am I the only guys using Nikon manual focus AiS lenses? Holy crap. Somebody out there please tell me what's up with my match needle metering in LiveView using manual lenses with the 1Dx. The histogram is fine but the needle meter reading is out to lunch. It's only an issue in LiveView. I don't have this problem with my 5D MII.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Cheers

A.T.

Thanks. I think I've figured this out. This was a problem with some of the other models as well. It's a little weird but it looks like the camera remembers the last f stop setting of the last Canon lens mounted on the camera and uses that as some kind of registration for the meter system. I tested this with a few of my Canon lenses, 24-70 2.8, 50 1.4. If I have the  50 set to 5.6,  then shut down the camera and swap to one of my old Nikon lenses the match needle in LiveView is way off. If I go back to the 50, set it to 1.4 then shut down, remove the lens and go back to the Nikon lens, the meter then works pretty much as expected. So what if I go from a Canon f 4.0 or 2.8 lens  back to a Nikon lens you ask? The match needle metering is then messed up. I have to go from the 50 1.4 set to 1.4, shut down and then swap to the Nikon for the meter to be ok. Now I wonder if that is also the case if I'm using a Nikon F 2.0. lens. Do I first have to have a Canon  f 2.0 set to f 2.0 when shutting down before going to a Nikon f 2.0 lens?  What makes this so freakin' frustrating is that this stuff doesn't happen with my lesser 5D.

Aaaaaaaargh!

      Hi,
      I hail from Singapore and am looking to sell a minty Nikon 28-70mm F2.8. Yes, the "Bourne" lens. I fitted custom-made gears rings bought from Sean of Followfocus gears and they feel like a natural extension. Since I bought this lens a few years back mainly for video work, I didn't mind the autofocus motor not working (common 1st gen AFS issue) and got a pretty good discount. Now, this lens doesn't complement with my other lenses in terms of look and rotation - a nightmare to use 2 types as I will always get the direction wrong. I love the lens for what it does and the image it makes. For some reason, I can't seem to get anyone in my country interested in it (probably due to the autofocus) so I thought it might be ideal for someone willing to accept for what it is or is looking to get it rehoused.
      Take a look at the pictures and send me your offers (USD figures work too). If the number can also cover shipping overseas, I wouldn't mind going the extra mile to mail it. Thanks.
       
      Oh yes, it comes with both original front and back caps and the original hood.
