Just bought a new 70D body. My Sigma 105-500 telephoto will not keep an AF lock on subjects; it constantly "hunts" back and forth, in and out of focus, while shooting. I have tried AI Servo, One Shot, and AI Focus to no avail. I've played with the focus points, OS on and off, tripod and hand held. The lens worked flawlessly with the 30D body, so I am at a lost. Any suggestions? 70D works great with Tamron 18-270 and other lenses.
hello peopleI'm not sure if the question has been answered before - a research brought up several similar topics, but I couldn't find the answer to my question. So, here it is: I have a 6D, a 580exII and a set of three very cheap strobes, brandless.Back to the days of 30D and 5D, life was easy: I used to plug one end of this cable into the sync port of the strobe, the other end (the female) into the 30D/5D, and just fired the flash.I tried today with the 30D, and it still works.The problem...
""The Canon T1i has the simplified AE Lock button, which unbundles the AF Lock feature from the old button on the older EOS cameras like the 20D and 30D. Marked with an asterisk (*) symbol, the AE Lock button simply holds the exposure at one setting while you recompose the image. It's very useful when spot metering, but also when dealing with subjects where you want to draw your exposure from one place, while autofocusing on another. Pressing the button with the pop-up flash activated or with...
I am going on a last minute remote shoot and gear I'm taking is 7D, 50D, 70-200 F4, Tam 200-500 f5-6.3. Question is my Tam is more power hungry than the Canon 70-200 , but the 7D focuses faster. I have two battery packs and a remote charger for my 50D. Only one with my 7D. Simply, should I ..... 1) Go with 7D and 70-200 less power consumption2) Go with 7D and Tam 200-500. Picture quality seems better with this combo than on the 50D and the 50D 70-200 combo does well, but not as quick focusing...
A few of my photos taken with the Canon 50mm f1.8 (no hood) on a 30D from recent trips have had a bright haze on them whenever there was a strong light source in the background. I've grouped a few here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/andrewyoung504/sets/72157639133249526/ Unfortunately I don't have the lens with me and won't be home for several days. Can anyone tell me from looking at the photos whether there is any reason for concern? Could there be some dust/fungus in the lens or is it just...
Dear all, Has anyone here taken landscape photos early morning or at night where they have the stars in the background? Is it possible to take these types of photos using a tripod, cable release and a long exposure? Which would be better Canon 30D with 18-55 Is USM lens and a RF trigger or Fuji X pro 1 with 18mm lense and cable release? Could you share your pics if you have taken some?
I have a Canon EOS 30D and a 40D that I use for work (motor sport photography), but I wanted a lighter camera to carry with me basically everywhere I go.I'm looking to buy either the X-E1, X-E2, or X-Pro1, but I'm finding it really hard to decide for one. The reason is the price. I can get the X-E1 with the kit lens for 750€, the X-Pro1 for 1,070€, and the X-E2 for 1,200€. 450€ between the X-E1 and the X-E2 is no joke.
I've been using the Yongnuo Speedlite YN-462 flash with my Canon 30D for about 2 years now. I know this is a cheap flash but it has served me well, that is, until last night. I began noticing that frequent battery replacement was a recurring problem, but I did not really consider its impact on the flash unit itself. While shooting an event last night, the flash was working normally for about 4 hours until it simply stopped firing. I replaced the batteries, hoping that it would reset itself...
