Hello,I know this is really old equipment, so old most of you might not even be familiar with it but I still use it because it is sufficient for most of my needs.I use a Canon Rebel XSi 450D which produces outstanding results with the kit lens 18-55mm.Because I do mostly street photography I wanted a wider lens and I purchase a mint like new condition Tokina 12-24mm wide angle lens after reading endless good reviews about this lens.But ever since I got it, I can not manage to get a good sharp...

good evening,  currently i have a canon eos 450d and was thinking of getting a 70-200 f2.8 for it for indoors gymnastics. light is not the best there usually. The only problem is that the lens is quite big. I was wondering if the j5 would be suitable with a shorter fx f1.8 prime lens and ft-1 adapter as the autofocus and continous speed should be good enough? Would the autofocus be as fast with fx lens as with a cx lens? any advice would be highly appreciated. thanks ralf

My 450D has been sitting idle for a long while now but I wanna start taking some photos again. The mistake I did back when I choose my lens was to go with a zoom, the Tamron 18-270 instead of the 17-50. Don't wanna spend any more money on lenses so was thinking about getting the 430EX instead. 1. Will this remedy at least a little of the problems with low lights inside? 2. Will it help the lens focus when it at other times have a hard time? 3. Is it smarter to get the flash instead of a new...

Hello friends!I've been a semi-professional photographer for a few years now doing it mainly as a hobby but mixing it with work for my business and some features on local magazines. A few months ago I dropped my Canon 50mm 1.4 and one of the glasses on the lens mount side came off. I managed to put it back with no problem but since then I've been wondering if this resulted in damages and problems when focusing.Since I'm not a professional I would like to know if anyone who is or at least has...

Hi - I have a Canon Rebel 450D which I bought in 2008.  The images for landscape and portrait photography are not a razor sharp as I would like.  So I want o upgrade.  I am looking at the 5D mark 3 or 760d or 6d.  If I am going to invest I want a decent upgrade not just a slight one. Can anyone advise which one should I go for (or anyone other one for that matter)

Hi there! I was happily using my old Canon 430 EX II flash in manual mode, off camera using Cactus v6 transceivers. Bought a Nissin i40 for TTL functionality, but alas, it doesn't work on the Cactus v6 transceivers, since apparently, the pin on the new Sony MIS hotshoe flash falls short by 2 or 3mm as compared to the 'standard' Canon/Nikon style Cactus v6 shoe. There is a hard stop on the Nisson i40 shoe, so it cannot be pushed further to get the pin make contact with the center terminal on...

Hi, I'm still looking for a camera which I will use for making artistic short films/Time lapses/Photography/UltraWide Photography and video (I'm a complete beginner) At first I was thinking about canon 70d, but people are saying to get something else. So what is a best choice? I remind: 4k is not necessary, all i need is SHARP SHARP image/video quality, I will focus manually and I want to use my old canon lens that i have used on my 450d by the way I find canon lens to be the cheapest and...

Hi all,Relative novice here, but I am interested in getting a new lens, preferably a prime to be used primarily for portraiture / street photography.I'm looking for something that is as wide in focal length as possible and really wide in aperture, for lots of nice bokeh.I've had a little look around and quite like the look of the Canon 28mm 1.8. But as I am using an APS-C camera, it's going to be far more cropped than I really want. (This is assuming I am understanding the cropping issue...

Just spent the best part of 2 hours trying to help someone use their Canon 450d in Live View mode. It would autofocus fine when using the optical viewfinder after half pressing the shutter, but not in Live View. Eventually I found that the FE, or asterisk button (zoom out in playback button) enabled the focusing. Is this the only way it works? --Steve
