  • I thought the flash would work ETTL but when I got it is was slave mode only. I guess what would you expect for $50. Thanks for the input. I am leaving for Puerto Rico for 10 days and I will play ...
  • I just bought the Canon 70D and some off label flash. The camera has a built in pop up flash but it really isn't that great.  I bought this $50 flash to play with and I have no idea how to use it ...
  • Commented on 8000 Meters Altitude challenge

    I got some great pictures of The Matterhorn but it is only a measly 4500 meters

  • That is a very interesting idea.  I really love the 15-85mm and it basically lives on my camera. Maybe I will invest in a 55-250mm STM and get rid of the Tamron.
  • Well, now that I am completely confused, I am going to start with taking videos with the 15-85mm. The issue to me is the lens seem to have a lot of overlap. Clearly I don't need both. The idea of ...
  • I am sorry if it was confusing. I previously owned the 18-200mm canon lens which was not very good. When I looked at getting some new lens, I realized I rarely used the lens over 100mm and many of ...
  • I just bought the Canon 70D as a replacement for my t3i. The package came with the 18–135 mm STM lens. I love the 15 - 85 mm lens. I typically use the low end that is 15 to 18 more then the 85 to ...
  • Ryther Camera was selling the 70D a few weeks ago for $849. I almost bought it from them. But, 1) they are not one of those more reputable resellers and 2) thanks to R2D2 I got the super package ...
  • Thanks for the input. I figured rather than break the bank and buy an expensive flash, i went to Amazon and bought a cheap Neewer TT560 for $40. Worst case scenario, I throw it away after a few ...
  • Thanks, the yungnuo is 1/3 the price of the Canon. The 565EX compares to which Canon? I dont really want to spend more than $125. does anyone know any simple website comparing Flash types. Other ...
  • Replied in 70D or 6D?
    i love it. It is a HUGE step up from T3i. As of now i am just using my 15-85mm. It is a great walk around lens. I have not used video. But i am on Captiva island for the weekend. I am only ...
  • Created discussions Using a flash with 70D
    I just got the canon 70d and for my purposes which is basically for friiends family and for vacations, this is the perfect camera.  I have my Canon 15-85mm lens and the Tamron 70-300mm for the ...
  • I just got the 70D as well. I agree it is a little confusing. The Q button was on the T3i and if I remember correctly, if you are in one of the SCN modes, you can modify the way the camera ...
  • Replied in 70D or 6D?
    I upgraded my T3i to the 70D after reading about the ridiculous rebate offer from B&H combined with Canon. I got the 70D + 18-135mm STM + Pro-10 printer +Class 10 SD card +extra Battery + Case + ...
  • Replied in 70D or 6D?
    I think that tocar made a very valid point which needs to be considered and that is COST!!! The 6D is FF. You will need all new lens which are all going to be significantly more expensive that ...
  • I agree. I have the Tamron 70-300mm vc. However, I rarely use it. For sporting events it is too slow and for travel, well if need be, I take my 15-85mm and crop picture since I never print ...
  • I never heard of that lens. We're you referring to the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8? If not, do you recommend anything with a slightly larger range?
  • I travel a lot and used a t3i with Canon 15-85mm lens 90% of the time. I just bought the 70D and am considering upgrading my glass and giving the t3i +lens to my son. the 15-85mm range is great as ...
  • Thanks, Can you also do freeze frame photos in video mode? Do you need any extra speed for that? SanDisk has some class 10 high speed SD cards that go at 45MB/s, 80 MB/s and their fastest 95MB/s. ...
  • I understand that the 18-135mm STM is real quiet shooting video and I think you can also freeze-frame while shooting. Has anyone had any experience shooting video with the 15-85mm. Honestly I ...
