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...

Hey there, I'm looking to buy my first dSLR, and despite looking at a multitude of different used cameras and reading reviews and getting conflicting opinions, I'm totally lost. I'm interested in photography, but have never gotten a real camera due to the high cost to get into it. I've only ever taken pictures on my crappy old flip phone, and before that, Kodak disposables. So I'm totally new to this game. I don't mind spending good money on something I know I'll use often, but I have no way...

I've had my 20D for many years, but it's time to move on to a new camera.  I've been trying to compare the 7D Mark II to the 6D and find mixed information. One of my concerns is action shots.  That was always a frustration for me with my 20D.  My daughter is a figure skater and I want to be able to take action shots (obviously indoors... varying brightness) without the shots being blurry. Any recommendations or thoughts would be appreciated.  I'd consider another camera if these aren't the...

In a brightly lit scene both the metering in the viewfinder and live view provide the exact same result. However, in low light, the differences are extraordinary. In the examples below, I compare a 20D and a 6D. The metering system is set to exactly the same thing. All variables are kept as constant as possible. The differences are independent of things like JPG/RAW, stray light (low light so there is little to none), focal length, and mode (M,Tv,Av equivalent). By fixing the ISO and focal...

I've owned a Canon 15mm f2.8 lens for about 10 years now, shot a couple pics the other day using it with my 1d body (aps-h) and FF cameras I want to keep using it, but I just purchased a 7d (aps-c)... so my question to everyone and anyone is...   I would like to know if its worth me buying this lens to use on my 7d or if I am going to get the same shot with my 15mm fisheye. seems like an obvious answer but the 15mm fisheye is widder than the Canon 14mm L wide-angle, and other lenses also, if...

Hello, My father was a photography enthusiast with with more money to spend in his hobby than proper knowledge on how to spend that money on gear. His choices when buying lenses seem a bit random to me. He recently passed away and I inherited all his stuff. I am also a photography beginner and enthusiast and I would definitely like to keep part of that gear for my personal use and to develop as a photographer. However, I feel that some of the lenses I have here are a bit redundant and very...
