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

This christmas I will be upgrading my Fujifilm HS30EXR for a canon 60D. Obviously, I want to get some basic lenses for my new camera (especially since I can only afford it body only) and I came up with the idea of striking a trade with an aquaintence who owns a 450d with kit and the horrible 75-300mm lens. This woudld mean I would get two lenses (albiet not amazing ones, but ones that will be good enough until I can afford the 70-200 F4L) plus a spare body. I just wanted to know how good the...

So i have a problem. First of all i have an old Canon 450D since 2010 with 3 lens. The classic 18-55mm that i never used.A cheap 50mm 1.8 that i use when i want more sharpness and light but is hard to use on tight spaces, dinners mostly.And a 18-200 Tamron that is allways in camera.I know this "package" is cheap and nothing special but allways worked for me. Now i want an upgrade. I waited for photokina but nothing special for the price i want. My budget is 1000€.After some research i only...

Hi everyone :-) I'm curious about a few things concerning basic photography and studio photography and I'd appreciate any light people can shed on this for me! I have a Canon 450D, the kit lens and a Canon  50mm f/1.4 USM prime lens* 1. Studio - In order to get a white backdrop pure white (with no shadows) and a black backdrop pure black (with no shadows) I know that there must be a 2-3 stop difference between the subject you are photographing and the backdrop itself. I'm wondering does the...

I had EF 17-40mm f/4L USM with my Rebel XSi for few years.  It worked great.  However, it stucks/jams after taking the first photo when I put it on a brand-new 5D Mark II. Why is it doing that?  Is it the lens or camera problem? Note: My 5D Mark II is brand-new. It works flawlessly with all other EF lens.
