I mean among modern, decent DSLRs... can you spot inferior color depth? Do you know of sample photos where the same scene, shot with camera A vs. camera B,shows a glaring difference in color depth between them? Assuming they're the same class of camera of course, not flip-phone vs. medium format. I know dpreview is usually excited about dynamic range and all the techniques to keep noise levels down (including the technique of just buying a nicer camera). But nobody ever mentions or seems to...

Sorry when this is a stupid question, but I can't figure it out. Since last week my camera is acting strange. My photo's looking dark when shoot with the viewfinder and overexposed with liveview. The photo below is shot right after the lichter photo below. Even with 2/3 overexposere the photo looks dark. Same photo with liveview is too light and I understand that is because I changed not the overexposure which I used with the viewfinder. I was expecting that with same settings I get same...

Hi all, I can no longer use my laptop to easily focus my Canon 1DS MkII DSLRs since I (stupidly) "upgraded" to a recent version of EOS Utility without thinking to check if older DSLRs were still supported, and with the Perseids fast approaching, I've run out of options, so I'm asking here as a last resort. Unfortunately I did not realize that the newer version of EOS Utility which I upgraded to no longer supports the 1DS MkII, which leaves me in a pickle since I have not been able to locate...

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...
