When I used my Canon 40D converted to IR, I was able to set the custom white balance by taking a shot that was saved in a custom WB folder. Recently I have had my A7R converted to IR. In trying to use the same procedure for setting CWB, I don't see anything comparable in the manual. The only method for setting CWB is a grid whose temperature can be manipulated. Am I missing something? --Michael S

Hi forum, I like to ask you people's opinion regarding a possible lens purchase of mine. I quite recently bought an EOS 6D as addition to my old trusty EOS 40D. My standard zoom is the 24-70mm f4 I also own a 85mm f1.8 and a 70-200mm f4. On the 40D I really loved the 85mm giving me an equivalent field of view of a 135mm on FF. The 85mm still is a great portrait lens for bust portraits but i do miss a dedicated lens for head shots. Of course I can use my 70-200mm f4 for that purpose and the...

Hello, recently I bought this canon ts-24 version 1 lens and I had trouble focussing distant objects. At first I thought that this had something to do with the tilt function but now I did some tests with tilt and shift set to zero. so it should work like a normal lens now, wouldn't it? when I focus on something 1,50 meter, the lens says it's 3 meters away when it's sharp. Also I did some test with lens focused at infinity. does anybody know what is the problem, has anybody experience with...

I owned a 20D and dropped it in the ocean taking a pic of the milk way, then last sunday, girlfriend ran over my 40D replacement while I was loading the canoe and her parking the car.  Anyway, long story short; I realize these two cameras offer pretty different features, not the least of which FF Vs Crop.My question, if I shoot mostly landscape & wildlife (and often from the inside of a canoe in low light) what am I going to be most happy with?  My 17-55 2.8 IS was on the camera when it got...

Hello, I have unfortunately lost all my photo gear in an accident. My gear bag containing all my equipment got crushed under the wheels of a 40t truck. :( So I am back to square 1. I used to shoot with a Pentax K5 + Pentax K20D, a DA* 50-135 f/2.8, the DA* 16-50 f/2.8 and the F 70-210 f/4-5.6. Since I have to completely rebuild my full gear on a tight budget I have been studying several options. First of all I mainly shoot Football (Soccer that is for our US friends) Rugby Union, Polo and Ice...

Yes, I know. You get what you pay for. And yes, I know a tripod is an investment that I'll have for many years if I spend the big bucks now. BUT - I don't have (or even want) to spend $1000 on a tripod. Or even $500. I'm looking for something a bit more wallet-friendly. Here's some info, so you guys can advise me more accurately: I mostly do nature/landscape photography, and I'd really, REALLY love to take some water shots at slow shutter speeds to get that awesome "milky" water effect. But...

Hi everyone, I have a question, I'm thinking of buying the Canon 7D MarkII. If I use this camera in combination with the Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L (original old version, not the new MarkII) lens and the Canon 1.4x (MarkII) converter, will I have autofocus? I now have a Canon 40D and it doesn't have autofocus with this combination. If autofocus does work, will the autofocus fast (enough) or will it be slower when using the 1.4x converter? Many thanks for your answers!

Hi there,  I need a help deciding which camera and gear is better for me. Looking for camera good for pictures and video as well. I like to climb Mountains, so camera must be whether sealed. (Weight does not bother me at all). Up until now i just took pictures with a camera borrowed from a friend ( canon 40D + kit lens). On previous trips a have missed the video feature, as I would like to make documentary videos about my trips. Currently I am looking at Canon 7D + Magic Latern. In a future I...
