Hello, I'm a journalist and charity worker who uses a camera for work - not a professional photographer, but wanting to take professional-ish pictures / video. I haven't worked with video before, but have done a lot of stills photography. I want a camera that's light-ish, robust for rough travel, but really decent quality. I currently have a Canon 40D and am looking to upgrade from there. I've done some research and am tempted by the Samsung NX1 - which sounds fantastic - and the Canon 70D...

My Canon 24-104 won't always work on my Canon 40D. All my other lenses work. It works fine at 24mm end but as soon as I move to 105mm it displays error message 01. Can anyone suggest a reason or a solution please? I've cleaned the contacts several times with no effect.

Hi All,  I've been using a Canon 40D with a 24-70 2.8L and a 70-200 2.8L IS for several years now. Since my 8 year old daughter has started playing soccer I have fallen in love with sports photography all over again. While I have been happy with my photos, I'll admit that I'm envious of some of the shots from others I've seen posted using the same lenses in less than optimum lighting conditions using newer bodies (6D, 70D, etc.) I'm not talking about composition, just noise and general low...

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...

I'm finally upgrading from my 40D to the 70D Mark ll & trying to decide which one of the telephoto lenses to get for capturing dogs working in agility & other activities! How is the newest 70-200 f/2.8L ll lens is it a bit to heavy for running around with all day? May have to consider the 70-200 f/4 IS, would like to use a 100-400 for the coverage but concerned about the speed/light inside & out..... Please keep in mind I'm no spring chicken, but still try acting like one ;-)

My question is simple - Is there a big difference in image quality between something like a 5Dmk1 and a 5Dmk3 (or 40D v 7Dmk2) at ISO 100 in studio conditions? I know there have been big improvements in low light and focus and so on. But most of these are at high ISO with the lens wide open, shooting sport, etc.  But for the studio photographer shooting at ISO100 (besides megapixels), has there been significant a significant improvement in IQ. I'm strictly talking about image quality here -...

I'm still using my 40D & need a good quick lens for capturing my puppy & other's. Been considering the EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 or would the 50mm f/1.4 work just as well? Had an 85mm f/1.8 but gave it to my daughter for portraits of our granddaughters. My Aussie pup is nearly 5mos old already & would like to capture her development!! Thanks for your suggestions :-)

I think my 40D may be on the way out. I want to post some picks and get others advice. I have just recently started to shoot in higher ISO, 400, to capture movement and not miss the moments. I also change my picture style to faithful which uses no in camera enhancements. I do nature and natural light candid portraits as well as more general stuff. I have been noticing unwanted color lately, in certain situations, but I wouldn't think it is ISO related. I have talked to Canon twice and they...

Hi Gang, I am finally moving up and was hoping that I can get some of your feedback as to how I may like or not like moving from a 40D to a 7D Mark II.  Can someone tell how it was like going from the 40D to the 7D original.  I read so many negative comments on the 7D Mark II, I am a little discouraged.  Thanks in advance for your feedback. Aloha, Scott
