I'm a hobbyist (that may even be generous), and have had my Canon 450D with the kit lenses for about 5 years. I've been pretty pleased for the most part, although I've felt that better glass would enhance my results. I've got several kids involved in sports - both indoors and outdoors, and have been disappointed in the results I've gotten taking images of their events, especially indoors. I've just purchased a 70-200 f/2.8 IS to accompany it (series 1). Last week I was trying it out...
Hi, I am a novice DLSR user and have always used a Canon (first 350D then the 450D). I went to buy a new Canon - was going to get the 100D because of its compact size but the salesgirl talked me into getting the Sony A58. I really like the quality of the photos it takes but only WHEN THE CAMERA WORKS. The problem I have is that being a novice I tend to use the camera in auto a lot. When this camera is in auto and we are inside it is taking the photos without the flash and the ISO being...
Hi there! I'm about to upgrade from a 40D to full frame (Canon 6D), but I'm quite undecided for the lenses at the moment. Since I shoot mostly landscapes and then a bit of everything else, my original idea was to start with the 24-105 and then an ultra wide like the Sigma 12-24. But a I recently found out that the Sigma cannot support any filters, and since I am a ND lover, it left me disappointed. I am now thinking of changing completely my original plan and getting a 17-40 + 50mm 1.4...
I find that my photographs taken recently with the Canon 450D are not showing the AF point when I want to see it in DPP exactly where I had focused. Normally one of the boxes (in my case it is the central box, as I manually select that point to focus) would be red when I use auto focus. But in DPP I find all the boxes are black, as if I had used manual focus. Asking the seniors here: what could be wrong please? It cannot be the software because the pics taken with my 7D are fine. It's only...
Hi, lately i've been trying to use back button focus to try it out, the thing is, i don't really understand it.As far as i've read, back button focus gives you more control about focusing, letting you decide where and when to focus, without the camera trying to refocus every time.It can be really useful when you're using focus and recompose technique (usually i try not to because i'm concerned about front/back focus and since i have only 9 focusing points, it's no big deal manually selecting...
Hi all, i was looking to upgrade my 450d which i've been using for the past 2 years with something more "professional" and i was reading some reviews of the 7d. As far as i read it has everything i would need: magnesium body, weater sealed, great AF system and 100% viewfinder.The only thing i'm worried about is ISO performance, since it's a 4 year old camera.I was looking to the 70d but i'm not interested in videos and the build quality seems less sturdy.Another alternative is the pentax k-3...
Hi all, Since i'm looking to buy a new body (right now i'm using a canon 450d with a sigma 18-250mm), i was wondering if you're willing to help a very uncertain person :)So, the three bodies i was interested in are the canon 70d, the nikon 7100 and the new pentax k-3; i'm really impressed by the k-3, with its low noise and full weater sealing.The thing is, i don't really know much about pentax lenses, and i'm wondering if they can compete with canon and nikon "pro" lenses.Could you please...
I want to upgrade my 450d. I a new to photography but I am hell bent to learn how to take decent photos. I am looking for something that will also shoot video. Mainly for taking pictures and video of family trips and special events. I was all set to get a used 7d and then found out that the 7d mark 2 may be coming out soon. That will be out of my price range for a while anyway. I was thinking about picking up a used 60d for now ($500 +-). In a year or two when I have learned a little...
