My first post in this forum, hope someone can help me. I have recently dug out my fixed Canon 50mm f/1.4 to use on my 5d mkII. At f/1.4 and up to f/2.8, all images are out of focus. I just tested this lens when I set my camera on a tripod, took three shots focused exactly on the same spot and at f/1.4 the image is unusable, f/2.8 was better but still soft and f/3.5 was nice and sharp. The test object was about 20 feet away on all three shots. When I last used this lens on my old Canon 400d,...

Hi there folks, Hope everybody's well. I take a lot of pictures but have never been any good at keeping track of the latest kit. For the last eight years I've mostly been using a Canon 400D with a 50mm prime lens. At the time I bought the body it seemed a good compromise between portability and image quality. It's starting to creak, though, so I'd like to replace it. I don't care about flexibility, just the aforementioned portability and image quality, so the new Fuji X100T would be ideal -...

As a beginner to DSLR I bought the ‘entry level’ Canon 400D about 6 years ago. Having learned a lot through trial/error and belonging to a camera club, I now think I could move on to an ‘enthusiast level’ camera, the 70D. Then someone pointed out that even a current entry level Canon – the 700D – would give me much more than my 400D at half the cost (for the body alone) than the 70D. So I compared the spec of the 700D and the 70D and was surprised at how few the differences are. And where the...

I'm thinking of buying a Canon EOS 70D to replace my old EOS 400D which I use with a 17-40mm f/4 L and a 70-200mm f/4 L.  As I've not had video functionality before I was wondering whether I should buy the 18-55mm STM kit lens as I'm worried that the onboard microphone may pick up the sound of the 2 lenses when focussing, particularly the 17-40mm as this will be my usual lens.  Does anyone else use the 17-40mm f/4 for video and do you have a problem with the noise of the USM? Also, I briefly...

Hello all , I just bought a T5i as my third DSLR . I had a 300D and sold it for a 400D which I still have , and now a new T5i. I have been taking pics and zooming in on them both from each camera . After seeing no real noticeable improvement in the new T5i , I took pics in manual with each camera . I took the pics within 1 minute of each other . After numerous pics , I wound up trying to be as precise as possible . On each camera I used the same lens , (canon 70-300 IS zoomed to 300mm ) in...

Hi ThereIn 2008 I bought a Canon 400D with kit lens, this was a upgrade for me from a Olympus SP500uz, a year later I bought a standard 70-300mm lens for the canon in hopes for getting more zoom for surf photography. Still been new to photography the canon proved way too complicated (to many settings and program feature etc) and hence stayed in it bag a lot, the Olympus ended up going faulty with its memory card reader and it to stayed in it bag. I ended up buying a cheap point and shoot...

Hi. Was a lurker on that forum for some time, then decided to register to ask question about camera. Short (or not) story: I can say that i'm a something between newb-amateur. My primary work is nothing to do with photo (sysadmin), and usually i just take occasional photos on trips or walk... I do, however, know about aperture, exposure, ISO, Histograms, ETTR and other basic things. Usually i carry Fuji X10, but ATM i feel like this is not enough anymore. Min exposure is just 1/4 and lenses...

Just wanted to start off by saying I have very little experience in photography, but I'm a quick learner. I work for a pawn shop, and recently started posting jewelry online. The setup we have is a Canon Rebel XTi (DS126151) with a canon EFS 17-85mm lens. It says macro on the lens but the pictures for our jewelry just isn't coming out sharp enough. Is there a cheap variation, or bang for the buck lens I should buy? or maybe some adapters that would fix my issue?... any help is appreciated....
