I just bought a Canon 70D body and used it for portraits for the first time with my EF-S 18-135mm lens and 430EX Speedlite. They were outside shots, sunny day, all taken in full shade.  Every shot taken at 18mm are quite soft focus.  All other focal lengths are very sharp.  This does not happen with my 40D body.  I was on P mode, shutter speeds were between 1/60sec and 1/125sec , all wide open aperature.  Anyone else have this problem or know what is happening?   Thanks

i am using a Canon 580ex II on a bracket with my Canon 5D Mark III. The flash works fine directly on the camera. It only fires in full capacity when I put it on my bracket. This happens with each of my flashes (1 more 580ex II and one 580ex). I have also tried it on my 40d and have the same results.  I was using my flash for a photo shoot last night and they worked fine. Then, when I went to use it a couple of hours later, it only shot full strength. I could not adjust it at all. I use a...

Hi! I bought a used canon 40d a while back and it works perfectly, but when i received it i noticed it was missing a part, covering the bottom of the input. I sendt the guy an email and said he didn't know and stopped answering me after that. Since the camera works fine and no damage otherwise i kept the camera hoping it wouldn't be a big problem, but i want to fix it, is this a part i can buy seperately or is there a smart way i can fix this on my own? i'm considering stuffing some paper in...

Hi all,  I'm new here, I'd appreciate any advice or suggestions you have. I bought a 40D with a 28-135 lens about 9 years ago.  Planned a trip, it didn't happen, instead I bought a camera that  was better than a point and shoot. I love music & have lots of musician friends.  I often photograph bands in a wide variety of venues/locations.  I also like to photograph landscapes, travel, my dog, my weaving, and friends.  I've been approached to do some portraits, based on the band photos I've...

Hi, I am new to photography. I did not want to buy a new camera just because I am a newbie. After a bit research, I decided to buy a used 40D from eBay. Today I received my camera, it was physically in perfect condition. It also takes good photos under normal conditions. What I wanted to do was to take long exposure photos during the night, usually photos of planets and galaxies etc. I put the cap of my camera and I tested the sensor with 1, 10 and 20 seconds. The result was very...

Hi all, First post for me but I've observed a lot on here in the past. I'm an amateur photographer. I'm the client of a pro photographer who has lent me his old 5d Mk2 to see if I want to buy it from him. My question is, how much would you pay for it? It's got high mileage at 287k actuations but generally well looked after. One battery and a battery grip. That's it. I currently use a 5d and 40d so don't really 'need' the camera, but if I can get this one cheap enough it might be worth the...

Hi everyone.  I've been a Canon shooter since my mom bought me a Canon EOS Rebel G film camera when I was in college, and I didn't take a dive into digital until I bought a Canon 40D used, two generations after its release.  My investment into Canon is otherwise minimal; I have 2 consumer level prime lenses, a 430 EX II flash with Chinese ETTL remote triggers, and I bought a battery grip.  That's about it. I'm at a point now where I really miss having the wider angles and shallow depth of...

Hey everyone, I'm currently an owner of a 5D Mark I and Eos M3. The M3 has proven to be a good camera but I've been shooting the past 8 years with a 40D and a 5D. I've gotten accustomed to shooting through an optical viewfinder and changing the AF points on the fly.  What would seem to be restricting to only have 9 AF points on the 5D actually helped me compose better during shooting. I just find it easier to look through a OVF or EVF when shooting. I purchased the EVF for the M3 but it's a...

Hello I am upgrading from 40D to 70D. My new Canon 70D will arrive with Canon EF-S 18-135 F3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. Also I will get Canon EF 70-300 F4-5.6 IS USM lens. Now I found Canon EF 17-40 F4.0 USM lens. Is is worth to replace Canon EF-S 18-135 F3.5-5.6 IS STM by EF 17-40 F4.0 USM lens? Thank you.
