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

When the Speedlite EX550 is attached to the EOS 7D and powered up the camera fails to show that flash is available and the external flash menu settings report that the flash unit is either incompatible or not powered up. On a different camera (EOS 450D) the camera display shows flash available and the external flash menu settings are available.  On both cameras the flash does fire when the shutter is activated. Have I got a setting wrong on the EOS 7D or is it broken?

at moment i have canon 450d and was thinking of getting a better lens up to 800£ for indoor sports, like 135L f2 or 70-200 f2.8 as i heard yesterday of new rx10 mark 2, could that be an alternative, with its 2.8 lens? Is af fast enough for sports ( indoor gymnastics) and quality good as 450d? ta

I used to have a Canon 450D and I must say that it was a great camera. I have upgraded by buying a used Canon 650D which I sold 2 days later for some reason the camera was overexposing in Auto, P and AV mode Shooting through liveview was OK... but through viewfinder the result was very dissapointing. I was getting overexposed photos and I had to give -2 in exposure compensation in order to get a close must of a well exposed photo I searched the internet and show that for 650D this is kind of...

I own a Canon EOS 450D (Rebel Xsi) and an EOS M. The latter is by now suffering from a significant amount of dust/spots on the sensor, the former seems to have none, although the EOS M has seen a lot less use. In that context, I noticed something odd when removing the lens from either camera: On the EOS M, the sensor is fully "exposed" (and of course close to the lens mount). On the 450D when "manually" flipping up the mirror (using my finger while camera is turned off), the shutter seems to...

I received the Sony 50-210mm f/4.5-6.3 (SEL55210) in the mail today and I thought everything was perfect until I saw this: Look at where the 2's would intersect if lines were drawn through them and you'll see the spot. (Taken with a dying compact.) (Taken with a 450D) It's definitely on the inside and it doesn't belong there, obviously. I'm sure everyone's first thought is 'dust' but it doesn't look like dust to me. Any ideas what it might be? How bad is it?

Hi guys, I'd like to firstly point out that I am beginner with DSLRs and I may use the wrong terms so forgive me! I need help figuring out whats happening to my camera. It started with the light meter not functioning properly. The meter will be in the center when I change the aperture but the pictures will come out super exposed.  Now my shutter button is 'locked' and I can't take any photos and I noticed that the light meter in the view finder is dead. However I am still getting a...

Hi all, I am getting into car photography and videoing, I have just upgraded from a 450d to a 700d primarily for the video function. When I video the car going past, the car appears out of focus and distorted. Is there a setting/tip to improve this- something obvious? My Galaxy S3 seems to be doing better than this! Video Many thanks, Alec
