  • Just to summarize. The 5D Mark III has the ability to control a transmitter attached to the camera, but does not actually have a transmitter built in.  What does this actually mean... If you buy ...
  • For posing, I find the ones advertising/hosted by Sekonic light meters amazing, and a few from B&H photo as well (with Neilvn, etc.). I haven't found any other topics from B&H useful, rather seem ...
  • My opinion, the wider the wide angle the more they become an "artistic" lens vs. normal. It takes a certain amount of skill to be successful using very wide angles. Most people will say "isolate ...
  • My story with Amazon. I bought a tape drive for my work from an Amazon selling business knowing it would be backed by Amazons warranty. It came with a 30 day warranty, dreading bring the server ...
  • It's something, if you didn't have it there's no going back. As others have stated, I have slides from 10 years ago I have no idea where I took them. My trip to Antarctica especially, now I have ...
  • I have to agree with the disappointed statement. Over the years I've determined The best time is typically very early sunrise, there's typically dew on the leaves, no wind so the river will be the ...
  • To help improve composition in your photo, sometimes I like to think of taking a picture as telling a story. Unlike a story from a book, or video, or movie you don't have minutes to tell it ...
  • You can experiment with it yourself. Take an image you took, break the image up into equal quarters (you'll have a cross pattern down the middle). Each one of those images is the same if taken by a ...
  • I saw someone else post this. Take the test at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsZtUZvoeO0 grab a pen & pencil, fast forward to 19:00 and begin. It compares portraits between the D750 and Canon 5D ...
  • I've always thought it should go to what's the highest interest. For example, I have an extra $500/month. Do I want to put it towards my mortgage where I'm paying 4% interest and actually less ...
  • For a first time, awesome job! Even the posing was excellent. As others have stated the background could be better I guess but not bad. I'm just going to walk you through the steps of what's normal. ...
  • I think both were probably not something I'd pick personally. However, ETTL > Manual so of the two flashes you picked the better. I guess you can start there, but not being able to swivel it 180 is ...
  • I don't know what camera you use.  But on Nikons it's particularly useful.  Hold the WB button down while taking a picture of something white and that's it.  No menu choices, don't have to take ...
  • This is how to tell what focal length is useful to you. Take an image with your 50mm and draw a cross in the middle so it gets broken up into 4 equal parts. Each quadrant is the same as if you had ...
  • I don't know where more DR is ever a bad thing vs. less. But here's some situations that I've run across that DR has certainly helped and with money. I'm shooting a wedding... the kiss happens and ...
  • I would start with Craigslist personally. Ebay I've found is hit or miss. I had one lens I bought new for $965, then sold 5 years later on ebay for $895. Wow... you could still get that lens for ...
  • Well, this is what I find special about Nikon. I guess you'll have to ask what's special about Canon to get my opinion on that. Added face detection in the viewfinder (not live view) in 2012 with ...
  • This is my $0.02, in perspective as a Nikon user since 1999. I chose Nikon because of it's RGB meter, before choosing I realized that I love to take winter scenes, that I typically shot at -15F to ...
  • Here's what I've gathered over the eons for doing this. 1.) Be aware when you press the shutter there's actually 3 pictures. The one your vision see's, the one your camera takes, and the one you ...
  • On my dslr (Nikon) when I go into live view I press the magnify button over and over again each time zooms the live view. I use it on occasion for tight focusing. I know Canon has it, I saw a ...
