Hello all, I've been struggling to find a workaround after my old XP pro laptop (which I used to tether my DSLRs) died. I bought a refurbished laptop running Win 7 Pro to replace it, but after further struggles trying to get my cameras (1Ds MkII, and 1D MkIIn) to tether/connect with "virtual XP" I've given up on that route and am instead considering gong down the EyeFi (or similar) route. Basically I need to be able to take an image/RAW, send it to my laptop, zoom in to check focus, and then...

Hi! I'm quite interested in buying a used Canon 20D or 30D, leaning towards a 30D right now. I own a few Canon Rebels and one Nikon D3200, but over time the small buffers really caused problems in my photography. I shoot rocket launches so I really need a camera with a buffer that doesn't fill in RAW. I know the 30D has the two different speeds, I believe one at 3 fps and another at 6 fps, so I was wondering in your experience how fast have these buffers filled up. I assume after 11 or so...

Hi, Judging from research I've done on 4/3's cameras, they all exhibit considerable noise at high ISO's (1600 & above) due to the smaller sized sensor. Can anyone recommend any models (under $1000) that they think keep the noise to a minimum? I realize I can't have the same silly-smoothness that I get from my Canon 20D but I'd like to keep the noise down as much as possible in a 4/3's within my budget.

Hey everyone, I'm new to DPReview. I'm a proud owner of a Canon 20D who just recently (Today!) bought a 5D Mark III. I've also got the vertical grip on order and intend to pick up a speedlite soon (my base exchange sells the 320 which I assume will do the trick? I've never used one before). My primary question is this: Should I get some new glass? I pretty much take a wide berth of images. I enjoy landscape, nature, and wildlife photography but I also enjoy getting up close and macro. I just...

Hello everyone, long time viewer on this forum.  I'm currently in the market to buy a new DSLR and I currently own a Canon 20D with only 2 lenses so I'm not heavily invested in Canon as of right now.  I want to upgrade to either a Nikon D750 or a D810.  I usually photograph live events, but also do portraits and street photography.  Every now and then I'll take my tripod out and do some landscape.  My question to you is, should I put down money now for either one of those 2 cameras or should...

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...
