  • The STM lenses will not add follow focus to older cameras.  They do work very well with the older cameras.  They focus silently and quickly.  The ratings I have seen suggest that the new STM ...
  • If you are only going to have one lens to carry around with you, I recommend one of Canon's 18-135 zooms.  The latest STM version gets good reviews, and is ready for video production when you get ...
  • For someone who is overwhelmed, teach them how to put the camera in full auto mode. Then give them an overview of the various choices and how it affects the final image: (1) Distance from subject ...
  • There's nothing wrong with buying camera gear to make you happy. if you want to buy gear for your photo business, you should consult your business plan.  Different types of photography need ...
  • You are assuming that your skills as a photographer are important to your success with a photography business.  This is a bad assumption. If you want to make money with photography, you need to ...
  • There are two separate issues here: First, whether or not intermediate speeds (like ISO 300) are a good thing.  There are those who believe that internally, the camera only works in full stop ISO ...
  • I suspect the 50mm f/1.4 lens will make the situation worse. I believe the underlying problem is that the wider the aperture, the shallower the depth of field.  Smaller numbers yield wider ...
  • Yes, I believe the 600D (Rebel T3i in the USA) supports High-Speed Sync with all current Canon EX series external speed lights. There are a few limitations.   See the camera's manual for details ...
  • Maybe. It sounds like the maximum sync speed for your camera is 1/200th second.  At faster speeds, the camera uses a moving slit to expose different parts of the sensor at different times.  This ...
  • Seems like a complicated system. If you really want to know compare in an easy and sensible system, talk about Field of View in "degrees" and aperture diameters. An 80mm lens at f/8 has an...

  • Remember, colorspaces are not 2 dimensional, they are three dimensional. It's not 16.8 million shades along one axis, it's only 256 steps on each axis. Consider a low key photo of a model on dark ...
  • In the USA there is a different laws for whether or not you are allowed to take a photograph of a person, vs. what you are allowed to do with the photo once it is taken. For instance, generally I ...
  • I had assumed that the OP was already shooting in RAW as they are using Lightroom for post processing. As a general rule, if you are getting everything right in the camera, then it's OK to shoot ...
  • The short answer is that if you don't understand the intricacies of colorspace conversion, you are probably best off working in sRGB. . It turns out that real world implementations of various ...
  • Although you generally don't need a release for editorial use in the USA, there are exceptions.  If the context of the usage paints the person in a false light, you may need a release, even  for ...
  • Replied in filter or not
    Most undeveloped film stock has a matte, non-reflective surface. Most digital sensors have a shiny, reflective surface. The combination of the flat reflective sensor being parallel to the flat ...
  • Replied in filter or not
    Blowing rain and sand are unlikely to damage glass. If you are in a situation where the rain/sand causes damage, then you will need to replace your filter after it has been damaged. If you don't ...
  • Replied in filter or not
    Do a search and you will find a lot of information. The bottom line is that filters provide less physical protection than you might think.  With digital cameras and some lighting conditions, ...
  • You've touched on a few interesting topics. First of all, if the client shares copyright, then there is nothing you can do. Their ownership in the copyright allows them to give the image away. In ...
  • But it's not that aRGB is " better ", it's just different . If your image fits within the sRGB color gamut, then sRGB actually provides better quality. If your image doesn't fit into sRGB, then you ...
