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...

Looking for comparisons of sharpness and AF. Deciding if I should breakdown and get the new Sport version. I have the original 120-300/2.8 EX APO DG, since 2007. Have used with Can 40D, 50D, 7D and was always satisfied with results at night. I primarily shoot sports, mostly football and soccer at night so 2.8 and the 120-300 zoom is really a plus. Now that I have a 7D MarkII, the AF is slow and sharpness is just not as good at night. I know I need to MFA and plan too. What I really want to...

I have playing with some software I wrote that breaks out the TIFF/EXIF/Makernotes metadata. Noticed something strange about reported black points. Some cameras report the black level in ADU in the makernotes.  The cameras I own do this (Canon 40D, Pentax *istD, Pentax K10, and Pentax K3). I have been comparing this with the average level of very dark gray patches or the masked areas.  In the case of Pentax the dark patches compare very closely to the reported black levels (127 for *istD and...

Hi All, i hope this is the right place to post? I often read forums, but rarely post in them. I have a Canon 40D & Sony A230, and want to see if it is possible to have a direct wireless link-up for one (or both) of these cameras to a tablet (i have a ASUS running an Android OS) so that i can review the images instantly. i have alot of difficulty checking to make sure i am 100% happy with the image i have taken, and get bored sifting through too many images that are very similar to make sure i...

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...
