Hi I am an old 40D user, and after some years of enthusiastic carrying of 2,5kg+ of gears, I started to be bored of that. Don't get me wrong: I love my DSLR, but I don't want to walk with it every time I go out, or simply I can't. I will never sell it, instead it's now reserved for some specific context. Some days ago I watched at offers and, suddenly!, I was in front of my brand new EOS-M+22m+flash+EF-S adapter, exchanged for 199€. A real bargain, great quality, some AF issues, definitively...
I have a plan in my mind to shoot deer rutting in Richmond park, London, for 5 days. From my research, they are mostly active during dawn and dusk, which means low light shooting. I haven't done much wildlife photography, since my last trip to Kenya back in 2009. Now, here is my dilemma, I am tore between two options, and I want to confuse myself more by hearing your opinions. :) At this moment I have in my arsenal. Canon system: Body: 40D (10MP APSC) Relevant Lens: 70-200mm F4 IS , Sigma...
I have recently purchased a Canon 1D Mark 111, one without the shutter issue, and I'm having difficulties in setting up exposure bracketing with the camera, as I,m a fan of HDR photography. On my other Canon cameras, 550D & 40D, it is an easy process; go into menu, select AEB and move control dial until the amount of compensation difference is set, put camera in drive mode & press shutter & three photos are taken, one at normal exposure, one under exposed & one overexposed. On the 1D under...
I just purchased the 70D from Adorama and am swimming in the steep learning curve. I'm quickly suffering the same external flash underexposure problems that are now legend in DPR. What is the latest firmware for the 70D. Mine is 1.1.1. For some reason it's hard to find anything on the Canon site about the latest firmware. The external flash issue is a big disappointment. I use the Gary Fong Lightsphere with the 580EXII, and it worked wonderfully on my T4i and 40D. Shocking that the 70D has...
I am off to a 2.5 weeks trip to Iceland next week and mulling over the question which lenses to bring. In particular, I am not sure whether I should bring my Canon 10-22mm EF-S ultrawide, or whether 18 mm is sufficiently wide for the landscapes in Iceland. What is your experience, and have you bagged dramatic scenery shots at focal lengths shorter than 18 mm in Iceland? This is by far my most important question. Another question is which standard lens to bring. I have Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 (best...
I'm having a bit of an issue deciding which lenses to buy to upgrade from my 18-55 kit lens, hoping you guys could give me some good advice to think on to help make a decision. I don't have a lot of money, so I'm trying to "plan out" my lens purchases a bit. I have a Canon 40D that I picked up used in excellent condition for pretty cheap, so it's a crop sensor body. After looking at my most commonly used focal lengths, I've found most of them to be either 18, 24 or 35mm, except when doing...
I purchased an X-T1 a few weeks ago and am still disappointed by the speed of autofocus. I'm coming from a Canon 40D which I usually shoot with an 18-55 f2.8 lens. For the X-T1 I'm using the 18-135. Today I played around with the Olympus and Panasonic mirrorless cameras and they appear to focus much faster and hunt less. Is there a summary of the settings to use for fastest autofocus? Here's what I'm doing so far: Turn on High Performance in Power Management. (In shooting, Menu, wrench-2...
I am currently using a 40D and loving photography in general. I have a number of "ok" lenses - Sigma 17-70mm 2.8-4.5 Canon 100mm 2.8 Sigma 70-300mm 4-5.6 DG Canon 50mm 1.8 II Now the question, would I get a bigger benefit from upgrading to the 70D body and continuing with these lenses, or is the benefit in investing in an L series zoom? I am currently stuck between the 70D (body), 70-200mm f4L IS and the 70-300 f4-5.6L IS zoom. My main area of enjoyment is in landscape/urban and now a...
Greetings Forum members Today I just signed in to Dpreview and this is my 1st post. I am familiar with the search engine of Dpreview for i have been browsing this forum since i bought my first DSLR, a canon 30D 15 years ago. I cannot seem to find the topic concerning 70D's battery drain. Coming from a 40D. I have no complain what so ever with the performance of the 70D, except the battery drain even not in use. Last Sunday I took around 32 shots from the 70D and then turned the wifi and...
