Our school archives is looking to purchase a DSLR to serve two purposes: First, we would use it to digitize (i.e. photograph) a collection of large scrapbooks by mounting the camera above them on a camera stand, then using remote capture to view the shot on a monitor and take the picture. The largest scrapbooks are about 28"x22" and we would try to supplement the ambient light in the room with some work lights on stands. Second, we would use it to film speakers in two different contexts --...

7d, 1/60 @ f/10 ISO 100, 31mm (EF-S17-55mm f/2,8 IS USM) I,m having trouble getting my images pin sharp. The active focus point is at the yellow trees in the center. It seems that the image is more sharp in the front then in the back. I see this issue often, specially in landscape images. The details does not come out as I like them to. Any suggestions? Is it my technique, my camera or my lense?

Has anyone experienced any problems with focusing to inifinity?I use the Commlite adapter for Canon lenses on the A7s, and since recently it won't allow the camera to focus at infinity, turning the focus ring all the way just never reaches infinity.Anyone with similar problem and any solutions? Have you had similar problem with other adapters like the Novoflex, Fotodiox or the Metabones adapter?I tried cleaning the connecting pins, mounting and dismounting the adapter, different lenses.Tested...

Hi there,I am going for a two week trip to Thailand and Malaysia next week and I am currently thinking about what lenses to bring along. I am going to take photos of various scenes like an afternoon island wedding, streets in Kuala Lumpur and the Malaysian highlands (nature). As we will be walking a lot I want to travel light. I own the following lenses (all Canon). 17-55 f/2.8 70-200 f/4 24 f/1.4 II 50 f/1.8 I 85 f/1.8 What would you think would be the best combination if I take 3 lenses?...

I've decided to sell my front focusing Canon EF-S 17-55mm lens.  It's off by a fair amount, it requires a micro focus adjustment of +8/+7 at wide/telephoto on our 7D mkII.  Whether I sell it on eBay or craigslist I would mention the front focusing issue so there would be no surprises.  I still have a couple of weeks left on the warranty so I may have the option of sending it in but it doesn't sound like that is necessarily a sure bet for an accurately adjusted lens.  I'm looking for opinions...

i need a bag for my gear and i'm inclined to the sling-style bag. the tamrac velocity 8z was on the top of my list but i just discovered the turnstyle 20 and i'm really liking the flexibility of carrying it on your waist or as a sling. i don't know, though, if it can hold my gear: a 7D2 w/grip, 70-200L2.8II, 17-55, and (i might be getting) a 24-105L.  anyone have this bag? any thoughts? thanks very much.

I have a 70d with a Canon EFS 17-55 f/2.8 USM. After a few months of use, I noticed that the bottom right corner of my image was unsharp in some situations. The issue was clearly visible at 55 mm f/2.8, less so at 17 mm f/2.8. At f/5.6 it was still visible, and at f/8 almost gone (or at least reduced to an acceptable level). In addition I had the feeling that the AF was inaccurate, so I sent the body and the lens to Canon for servicing. I got it back and now:- The blurry corner is still...

Hi Guys, I just bought a Canon 60D, however im not sure which lens combo to go for: 10-22 and 24-105 OR 17-55 and 70-200. I do alot of landscape stuff but sometimes i cover stage events like concerts, etc so which lens would be best for doing that kind of stuff. I'm not sure whether 105mm is long enough for covering concerts and whether 17mm is wide enough for landscapes. Thanks.

Hi I'm an enthusiastic photographer and recently moved to the Canon 700d with the 18-55 STM lens. I like all kinds of photography such as portrait/photos of kids and family, macro and nature and really wanting to try sunset/sunrise landscape shots. I love the bokeh effect to make my photos of the kids stand out and I think makes the photos look more professional. I bought the Canon 50mm 1.8 II and been achieving some good results but I find the 50mm on the crop sensor too tightly framed, I...

Hey everyone, I'm kinda new to documentary photography, I own a Canon 550D, and I want to buy a new lens (since I only own the 18-55mm and a 55-250mm) to suit the field. So I've kinda narrowed my choices down to either the Canon EF-S 17-55mm F2.8 IS USM, or the Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM. Regarding the Sigma, I haven't dealt with fixed focus lenses before which makes me a little hesitant to lose the range, even though i seen that it has great reviews. Another factor is the fact that I have a...
