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...

I cant get my new 580ex ll external flash unit to work on my 60D.  The flash connects properly, contacts are clean etc...  The flash recognizes changes that I make to exposure compensation and zoom ( lens is Canon 24-105 zoom) as shown on the flash LCD panel.  In ETTL mode however, the small lighting bolt that is supposed to show in the lower left of my viewfinder is not there.  I have checked the flash control menu settings and the flash is [enabled] in [E-TTL ll mode] etc...  I reset the...

So, I finally got the pics on the computer - had to do some upgrades. Guess stepping up to the current age won't kill me?? (i was still on Lion on my Mac). I was using my 1 day old 70D coupled with the 85mm lens I bought 2 months ago.I had noticed the "purple fringing" on these pics on my iPad - it is kinda so severe that it is hard to miss. It is obviously worse onscreen. BUT, when I was using the loupe on the picture of my daughter, I saw this green fringing area... I have experience with...

I'm looking to upgrade my photo kit very soon. I still have an ageing Canon 20D and, getting back into shooting after a few years off, am seeing the limitations of the 8mpix cameras (my PHONE has a higher pix count! :) though not better lens) I'm posting this q here because I'm leaning more towards the A7r. My choice has come down to two cameras. The Sony A7r + FE 24-105 f4 OSS + rjcameras EF adapter The Canon 5d Mk III with 24-105 f4L IS + eyefi card I'm looking to keep using my existing...

I also asked this in the Canon 7D 10D-70D forum but as it is lens-related as well a better place might be here. My main question is whether AF adjustment after IR conversion can be done for several lenses. I am about to send in one of my cameras (EOS 20D or 40D) for conversion to infrared (IR) photography, with a >630nm filter. I have the choice between 1. a cheaper option (236€; DSLR AstroTEC) who would do the focus adjustment for one lens (my choice would be the EF-S 17-85mm IS) 2. a more...

SO I ordered the camera (70D, 18-55mm lens) from Dell.... and despite a voice mail saying it was NOT going to arrive until the 23rd, it is 1/2 to me (um, after a terse phone call yesterday) and will arrive sometime tomorrow while I'm at work. The meet is Saturday morning! BUT, that means I don't have it to practice with in the gym tonight - which stinks. I've read the manual, I started watching YouTubes at 5am... but I guess I'm wondering if there is anything in particualr I could read/watch...
