Re: Wireless tethering with Canon 5D-MK4?

I had some issues with the EOS80D and EOS 5D Mark IV using Android and Windows OS or the Hardware, how is used for. The USB OTG and USB-Link between the EOS and Galaxy-TAB A10.2 and the USB Link to a Windows 10(Lenovo 13 Notebook) does not works successfully. It' seems that the link is lost if the d...

Re: Focus stacking with Canon 80D and iPhone

Well, i had implemented my final solution in the source of digicamcontrol, so a further discussion is not required.

Re: Focus stacking with Canon 80D and iPhone

Do you have any idea why we weren't able to reproduce the problem with our 80D? ... By the way, we have quite a few users with the Canon 80D body, and no one has reported this specific problem before. So we're not alone in not encountering this odd behavior. Can you explain why the bodies (80d and ...

Re: Focus stacking with Canon 80D and iPhone

Well, i guess i had found the source of the issue. The phonecall was quite helpful to walk in the right direction. he had absolutly right that the internal workflow must be changed. I wrote me a very tiny application who just connect the body, init the handlers, readout the camera's vendor-id, model...

Re: Focus stacking with Canon 80D and iPhone

So, it's not that the 80D body just handles focus commands differently. So far it seems that the problem only occurs with 80D and a Sigma lens, not with Canon lenses. Do you have any Canon lens? Well, the 80D does handle the focus workflow internaly different as the models before. I got this inform...

Re: Helicon Remote Canon 80D WiFi

It has recently became known that Smartphone mode is not compatible with Helicon Remote with some new Canon cameras (possibly, all of them released after a certain point in time). I can confirm that 80D and 6D Mk II are on the list. These cameras do, however, work in EOS Utility mode. And you can a...

Re: Focus stacking with Canon 80D and iPhone

Well, it's would be a good idea to know, what kind of lenses you had testet with your 80D. In addition, a detailed description of your Setup would take clear it. As i understand, the lense does not initiate a re-focus operation. The body control the lense, not the lense the body. Followed this assum...

Re: Focus stacking with Canon 80D and iPhone

Oh well, i had additionaly tested the Canon 180mm f/2.8 L today with the same result with the 80D and 5D MK4. I assume that this is a different focus handling of the bodies. The lenses are always the same tested on different bodies i checked as now. I looks like, that the lense move a step forward a...

Re: Focus stacking with Canon 80D and iPhone

MPE is true without a focus motor. The issue is, that the program does'nt notice that at an 80d and 5D Mark4. If an EOS 600D is used, the usage of the MPE will response with an error message in Helicon Remote. This let me further assume that their must be something more different as just implemented...

Re: Focus stacking with Canon 80D and iPhone

Yes, similar situation with all the lens i have - Sigma60mm, Canon MPE65, Sigma 105mm, and canon ef100mm macro. The lense does, what the camera says. It looks as would the camera move the lense to the next position and the autofocus move them back. It just walk just one step, and moved back immediat...

Re: Focus stacking with Canon 80D and iPhone

Oh, i can agree the observed behavior of focus bracketing with the EOS 80D and EOS 5D MK4. I also have found out that the camera manualy move the lense focus as expected. If i fix start end endpoint and let the lense move from a to b without capture a picture - it lost steps. Each next move, the sam...
