I am currently a Canon guy.  I've cleaned the sensors in the earlier 20D and 5D cameras with the swabs etc.   I have enjoyed not have to do so in the 7D and 5Diii cameras. The Sony sensor is not self cleaning.  How difficult is this to do?

Hi guys :) Quite a long time ago, I inherited an old EOS 50E and a Sigma 28-200mm lens (I've never used the 50E). The AF doesn't work, it's not really wide enough on my cropped frame 20D and the optics themselves are pretty dire. Regardless, it's the only lens I've got and the wide range is really useful. However, recently the aperture has been playing up. The lens has ALWAYS worked fine up until recently on my 20D. There's no issue at all with the electronics (that I'm aware of at...

Something about this camera that bothers me is that every time I import a group of photos into lightroom, they are in some random order. Usually there is a group of the photos on the card that were taken at the end of the shoot and they somehow get imported into the middle of the entire set. Numbers are correct, just seems as though they aren't being respected in the import. Is this normal? Sony issue or Adobe issue? Didn't happen on my old 20d, but that thing was ancient.

O.K., what is going wrong here?The first shot is out of focus bad. Also, I used burst mode and everyone of them were out of focus with the background looking like it's in focus. The people in the back ground are in more focus than the subject I was trying to capture. The second photo was one I was just testing, but seems to be more in focus. I used center point focus, shutter priority, AI-FOCUS. A opportunity missed. May not get another chance until next season. This 20D was giving to me. The...

I owned a 20D and dropped it in the ocean taking a pic of the milk way, then last sunday, girlfriend ran over my 40D replacement while I was loading the canoe and her parking the car.  Anyway, long story short; I realize these two cameras offer pretty different features, not the least of which FF Vs Crop.My question, if I shoot mostly landscape & wildlife (and often from the inside of a canoe in low light) what am I going to be most happy with?  My 17-55 2.8 IS was on the camera when it got...

Hi folks!  Been a while since I've been in the camera game (about 2 years since my last post). On a whim I came here to see what's going on in the photography world and read a few reviews. What I'm seeing is one of the big things is video and autofocus... ability?  So much of the marketing is on taking 1080p video and so forth - something in which I have 0 desire.  So I'm looking back at the cameras that were out when I had mine - the 20D.  It occurred to me that a camera like the 5D, which...

I bought an used EOS 7D a while ago. One of the particular advantages of the 7D (even the classic one) over "lesser" cameras is its fast and sophisticated auto-focus. However,  I experienced quite often that my new EOS7D would  not find focus at at all, and would hunt back and forth, even with well illuminated subjects or in broad daylight. I had to switch off auto-focus and use manual focus instead, the EF-S 17-85mm IS would not stop pumping.  I rarely experienced that with my EOS 40D and...

I’ve had my trusty 20D for about 11 years now, and my 550EX flash for longer. For the past few months, most of my flashes with the 550EX have been horribly underexposed. The change happened suddenly.  I haven’t gotten any error messages. It’s like the flash now puts out the minimum flash power, regardless of the lighting. The built-in flash on the 20D still works just fine. I use the 550EX flash directly mounted on the hot shoe, and sometimes use the ST-E2 external remote trigger. The ST-E2...

Hi, My goal is to nail some top quality images and I'm thinking my lenses are what's lacking. That means tat it's time to leverage things. Thus the critical issue. Since I'm not being paid YET to shoot billboards, magazine covers etc (and can always rent if a project requires with upfront payment)..... I'm thinking of leveraging gear to get the most tack sharp images regardless of sensor.Goal:  - Sharp / Fast / No Brainer KitBest Lenses / Imaging combination (through leveraging)      Without...
