  • I would warn the OP – which was the point of my post earlier – focus during video with a large sensor camera is difficult. I am surprised anyone would recommend manual focus on video for what the ...
  • When I did a comparison – it was purely subjective.
  • Replied in BIGGER!!
    Good point. I do think a lot of people want a body like the existing M. And if I started to collect M lenses I might too. So tweak it, give it the dual pixel sensor, and keep selling it. But I'm ...
  • Replied in BIGGER!!
    I have little interest in the current EOS M. I don't like the compromises it makes: only small with the 22mm, and not as fun to use as a large camera with a large grip and lots of controls. So, my ...
  • Replied in Focus Tracking!
    It seems to me that the only advantage of a DSLR or mirrorless camera over a camcorder for video is to get a narrow depth of field. However when taking advantage of a narrow depth of field, focus ...
  • Thanks for all your help Jim. I've tried to read the card on 5 devices:  A pc with USB card reader, two different laptops each with integrated card reader, a 70D, and an S100.  For the cameras, I ...
  • No luck. sudo fdisk -l found a different sdhc card, but not the broken one.
  • I'll definitely try when I am home this evening and report back.  Thanks.
  • Thanks for the insight Jim. From Ubuntu - I tried "sudo blkid" and the card wasn't listed. From the point of just recognizing and seeing the card – is that the same as sudo fdisk –l ? Note that ...
  • In Ubuntu - I was able to see other media cards, but not this one. So that didn't seem to help. So I tried reading the card in various computers and the camera with the lock switch engaged and ...
  • Thanks for the tips. To answer your questions: I've been using the card regularly for about a year I think. I have only really used it in my 70D, usually insert into card reader on a Windows 7 ...
  • So, I rented a Canon 70-200L 2.8 IS II this weekend to shoot my daughter's dance performance and other teams from her school. On the way home, we stopped by Washington DC specifically to take ...
  • First, take your time. If you want to spend something immediately: I would buy a grey/import version of the Nikon AF-S Nikkor DX 35mm f/1.8 G off ebay for $156. It will immediately get you ...
  • I agree with the OP. I'm amazed more people don't demand improved AF reliability with DSLR. Pros can and should take the time to ensure camera and lens are focusing correctly, and can adjust with ...
  • The 24mm 2.8 STM should be released and day now. I expect it will quickly become the defacto Canon crop camera walk around prime lens.
  • I started by making home videos of my family. Perhaps the quality isn't professional, indeed of course it is not. But that doesn't make the videos any less enjoyable. The topic is my daughters, of ...
  • I'm pretty happy with my kit. I have: The "Canon EF-S Trinity": 10-18 STM 18-135 STM 55-250 STM Together you have the equivalent range of 16-400.  These lenses can basically do anything. All are ...
  • For a short while, I had both the 70-300 IS  (non-L) and 55-250 STM lenses with my 70D.  I kept the 55-250 STM and sold the other one.  A few reasons:  the STM was sharper at 250 than the 70-300, ...
  • Thanks for the responses.  I'm glad folks are voting for me to save money.  :) I just looked through photos I made with the rented L lens.  Realized they were with an older camera, and I took it to ...
  • Created discussions 55-250 STM vs 70-200 f4L
    I currently have the 55-250 STM and I'm quite pleased with it. One of my main uses for the lens is daytime soccer games with my 70D. I find that the STM can keep up with focusing most of the time, ...
