  • After two+ years of loading SD cards from my Canon 60D into my PC for downloading/editing, suddenly my computer won't read them. I get a message asking if I want to format the card (which I don't, ...
  • Thanks, Comparing it to previous results from this lens it is obvious - sometimes just need a little reinforcement to take the repair plunge.  It's off to Canon Service for this puppy!!
  • Created photos Dropped my 10-22mm
    A couple of weeks ago I dropped my 10--22mm - HARD!  At the time I checked if the auto-focus worked (it did) and just put it away.  below is the first image since then.  These lenses have some ...
  • The 24-105 was my first L-series lens and I couldn't believe the upgrade from the kit lenses I had. Since then I've only bought L-Series lenses (it's hard to go back). That's just it - the 24-105 ...
  • Created discussions Photo Safe
    I am looking for a standalone device to back up photos for a long trip to South Africa my wife and I are planning.  We would like to avoid taking a lap-top, and will bring enough SD cards, but I ...
  • I'm thinking prime myself - gonna try renting one of those you suggested, and may actually give the 100-400 another shot in better light. Thanks for your answers - very helpful. JT
  • Well those are nice (though in honesty I think the Heron could be sharper, given that shutter speed).  You had a lot more light than I had on my soggy Seattle weekend.  I have a coupla questions ...
  • Looking very closely at the Tamron 150-600mm.  Right now availability is tight, but the images on-line seem pretty good (better than on the 100-400).  The price on that is low enough to consider ...
  • While I'll be the first to accept that a weekend rental doesn't offer the prospect for the best results, here's what I did.  At first, handheld, the results were completely unacceptable.  I ...
  • Created discussions Which Long Lens for Safari?
    I am going on a photo safari with my wife this summer.  I am looking for something longer than my 70-200 to try and peek a little further into the bush!  I rented a 100-400L and frankly was ...
  • Replied in First real BIF
    Thanks all for some great advice.  In truth, I wasn't specifically out looking for a BIF shot, but I did know this particular bird has been hanging out where I walk my dog.  So, here's some things ...
  • Created photos First real BIF
    In continuing the Christmas Bird theme of the day, here are what I would call my first BIF shots. I've had many BOB shots (bird on branch), and BOG shots (Bird on Ground), but these are the first ...
  • I have the 70-200mm/4L and I'm curious about the 1.4 TC.  I am thinking about the 2x converter, but I'm getting mixed signals about whether the autofocus works.  Your post indicates it does - Is ...
  • I use the Optech sling to carry around my 60D, but also leave a wrist strap attached to the bottom of the vertical grip I have attached. This makes it more functional when shooting with the camera ...
  • Actually, judging by the history of posts on this forum, the 7D has always been a bit soft.  :-) And let it  begin...............Now.
  • I would say given the lenses you have, and their focal lengths, the 10-22mm is the one that will open up more new territory for you.  It's a real game changer while the 15-85 is a good lens, ...
  • Check the B&H Photo used Lens section - they usually carry a 90 day warranty. Otherwise buy it with an AMEX card - that brings insurance with it, doesn't it? Truthfully I bought a used one for ...
  • Surprised no one has mentioned depth of field and "bokeh".  the f 2.8 will deliver on portraits better than the f4 choices listed. As for the 24-105 - it's really a sweet lens and does fine on my 60D.
  • I would recommend the 10-22 - especially if you're staying with APS-C.  It is a game changer!  I couldn't believe the creative differences between that and the 18-55 and 18-135 I have.  It's a ...
  • Created discussions Magic Lantern for 60D?
    As a 60D still photographer, I am wondering whether installing Magic Lantern is a worthy risk.  What photographic features does it add?  What are the downside risks?  I searched on this forum but ...
