Ive been taking photos at gigs and plays since I was 18 and clutching a slightly battered second hand 20D. After years of strangling photos out of DSLRs I find myself being...well picky. Currently I have a D7000 which I love but does struggle a bit in low light [that old Nikon AF Assist light stays off lest I blind my subjects]. Its also very heavy with a 70-200 F2.8 clutched for up to five hours during a rehersal. To say the least, I'm ready for a change. So I'm throwing the question open:...
I'm talking about experience of vintage EF lenses like the 35-105 & 35-135 f3.5-4.5 Using them on a 20D and testing them up through the aperture range I consistently get around half a stop underexposure on their widest aperture compared to f8, confirming what I suspected in practice. About 2/3 of that exposure difference clears up on the next step smaller aperture. e.g from 3.5 to 4. I have exposure set in 1/3 steps and can confirm from the EXIF the camera is deciding that underexposure. I...
I have a Friend out of college grad, who is looking to buy a new gear. I have suggested to get 20D/40D which retails really cheap on KEH and adorama.. But i checked the 600d etc also and even though these are pentamirror OVF's it looked pretty good to look at - comparable to old 20D. Has the pentamirror OVF's technology progressed for good that it is almost on par with pentaprism type OVF's atleast in older cameras?(Not talking about newer 60d and above - Viewfinder is a delight there as i...
I was out shooting yesterday, and always shoot Av. I switched to shutter priority, and that's when things went wrong. Now when I use anything but full manual, I have lost the relationship between shutter speed and f stop. When in AV, my shutter speed goes to about 30 second, and when it Tv, the f stop goes to the lowest possible, and still indicated that I am underexposing. I was using the 128-135 lens. Any ideas? --Mark Gmortgagemark2000@yahoo.com
I have a Canon 20D and am looking to invest in better equipment. Which is better? Upgrade from the 20D to a 60D or upgrade my lenses? I currently have an EFS 18-55 1:3.5-5.6 II, an EF 75-300 1:4-5.6 III and an EF 28-90 1:4-5.6 II. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Ok, so I've been shooting weddings for nearly 20 years. Started out with a Mamiya 645 for portraits and two 35mm F1 bodies (one color and one BW) for everything else. Went digital in 2000 with the original Nikon D1. Quickly returned to Canon once the D30 arrived. Upgraded only when needed, but have been through a few. The 10D. A pair of 20Ds. Today, I use the older but fabulous 1Ds Mark II, a pair of 1D Mark II N bodies, and a pair of 40D bodies. I use either prime lenses or L zooms. At a...
I've set my maximum ISO to 8000 (Custom Menu E / ISO auto-set).When shooting in a dimly lit room in P mode, I see "ISO-A / 8000" blinking on my screen. The camera selects 1/8 sec, f 6.3. The shot is perfectly exposed.Then I turned to mode dial to iAuto. Now I see "ISO-A/1600" (not blinking), and the camera has selected 1.6 seconds and f 6.3 (also perfectly exposed). When I go to Review mode, I see that the frame shot with iAuto has a little icon that depicts a night sky, mountains, a crescent...
Hello,I am fairly new to photography and started with a tight budget, so my first camera is the Canon EOS 20D. I received it 2 days ago and am still getting used to the settings/features. Also, i bought a Canon prime 50mm f/1.8 lens and a Canon image stabilizing 18-55mm lens. I have already taken some amazing photography with this camera, and am enjoying it alot! I am looking for your opinion on this Camera/Lens set up, advice on what to change/do? I know it is an old camera and is it worth...
Hi All, although I used a 20D for about two years with the Canon EF-S 17-85mm and a 75-300 both 4-5.6., I consider myself a beginner. This was my entry level but I was able to take about 10,000 photos that I was pretty happy with.. I was shooting and living in Honduras at the time. When I returned home I discovered my camera was destroyed by the humidity there. I upgraded to a 30D and kept both lens. I purchased an EF 50mm 1.8 and received the 18-55 with the 30D. My father was quite ill...
