Hi All: I think I know the disappointing answer to this dumb question, but just want to put it out there. I have a lovely old 30D that I would like to use as a webcam and/or as a live monitor plugged into a large TV display. My latest version of remote capture doesn't allow for a live view. I lost the "video out" cable that comes with the 30D years ago, and before I invest I'm wondering if it will do me any good. All thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time.

Greetings Forum members   Today I just signed in to Dpreview and this is my 1st post. I am familiar with the search engine of  Dpreview for i have been browsing this forum since i bought my first DSLR, a canon 30D 15 years ago. I cannot seem to find the topic concerning 70D's battery drain.  Coming from a 40D. I have no complain what so ever with the performance of the 70D, except the battery drain even not in use. Last Sunday I took around 32 shots from the 70D and then turned the wifi and...

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...
