I'm about to start a photo project about blue collar work in my region. A lot of the photos will be outside in less than ideal conditions including the ocean, farms, factories, logging operations and the mountains. The 6D is newer with a better sensor, while the 1DS MkIII is built like a tank and has a pretty decent sensor to begin with. My question for those with a 6D: Do you think this camera can handle rough environments including rain, snow, sleet, sea spray, dirt, and the occasional...

Just curious what you all would recommend if one were to upgrade from a 30 D. I sell my photography from time to time and I am use to very sharp pictures. I would like some higher resolution and ISO speeds for nighttime. I would like to stay in the $1200 range and with Canon because of my lenses. I do mostly nature,sunsets etc. I don't need the video on the 70 D, but what else would you recommend?. I did try the 70D out tonight..It seems nice, would that be considered an upgrade?  I have been...

I was using my Canon 30D and Bigma taking photos of Birds at a feeder. I was about 20 feet away, I got some good shots but more than half were out of focus. I was using center spot, had a decent shutter speed of 1/400, sometimes up to 1000, on a tripod, aperture of around 6.3 The keeper rate should have been much higher I feel. What would the problem be? Back focusing? front focusing? This is really frustrating. Owen

I have read about the 55 being slower to focus, but how about I.Q. The price of a refurbished 55 to 300 is very attractive, but I would like decent photos.......I am not as fussy as some folks,but nice photos is what I am after. Anyone tried both and have an honest opinion? --Gene from Western Pahttp://imageevent.com/grc6http://grc225.zenfolio.com/FZ 30D50 ....D80.....D7000 - 18 to 200VR- 50mm 1.8 - 80 to 400 OShttp://photos.imageevent.com/grc6/toshareonnet/topost/gene1111a.jpgJust trying to...

I recently upgraded from a 30D to the 7D2.  While taking some test shots today, I discovered that my 7D2 yields different exposures just by flipping the AF button to MF focus on the lens.  The difference in exposures varies from 2/3 to 1-1/3 stops, depending on what lens is attached.  Note, I repeated this with 2 different lenses and got the same result.  Also note, I repeated the test using my 30D and the exposure values remained the same regardless of the position of the AF button on the...

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...

Started getting feedback that I wouldn't be happy with the low light performance. I've been unhappy with every system I've had since having to relinquish my Canon 30D and 2- 2.8L lenses. (I now realize I should've chose to part with something else) Anyway, liking some of the reviews on Pentax. Had been looking at 5 II. Looks like a great deal. But, unsure about the Pentax glass. I want to go with a zoom 2.8 for sure. So any opinions...on quality, suggested model/info would be appreciated. I...

Hi, I'm thinking of complementing my Macbook Air 11" with a 13" model; the Air works perfectly for all my needs except for things like spreadsheets, the screen is just too small. I know all about the different components involved, and compared the Macbook Air 13" to the 13" Retina, the screen does look nice. I appreciate how little the Air models weigh, went today and lifted a 13" Retina and wasn't too happy about the extra weight. For those who have it or have considered it, is the screen...

Hello, I am new to the forums but I would like to get some confirmation on what I think may be an issue with my Canon 5D sensor. I bought the camera used a while ago and have not been very impressed with the quality of images it produces. But figured I was expecting to much. I have a 30D that seems to take better quality photos. I noticed with the last set of photos that I imported into Lightroom that there appears to be a lot more noise in darker areas/colors of the photos than previous...

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...
