Hello everyone. I wanted to solicit some opinions about something. I have a Canon T1i and I noticed some dark spots on the photos I took that had a lighter background (blue sky, light colored walls, etc). Thinking it was dirt I took it to a Canon service center for a sensor cleaning and found out from them that there were scratches on the CMOS. They gave me a repair estimate of $200. Judging by what I'm seeing around the web, it's probably worth more than the camera itself. So I'm wondering...
Good evening (or morning) I am student looking to upgrade my canon rebel t1i and I have been looking at my different options for a while. I have settled on 2 that I believe are in my desired price range, the canon 7D Mark II and the panasonic GX8. The main difference between them being the sensor. I love the GX8 but fear that I will not perform as I intend it to. I love night time sky shots to capture stars but also love street photography and the look and feel of the GX8. I have pretty much...
Hello, A number of years ago I bought a Canon Eos5 35mm SLR, it came with an EF 28-105 lens. This worked well for me for a quite a few years. Roll forward to now, I put this lens on a 500D DSLR. Every picture I take now it just out of focus if I use auto focus. Manually I can get a sharp image. Why it this? I though that as long as the lens would fit the body then it should work, at least something as basic as autofocus. Is there something I can do? Thank you Jonathon
Hey, I just sold my ancient Canon T1i and horribly built 50mm 1.8 and ordered a refurbished GX7 off of evilbay. I am extremely excited about the stylish and compact form factor of M43 as well as all of the modern touches. My only concern is bokeh though.... I have only shot APS-C and I wanted to know if the difference is very noticeable in day to day shooting. I understand about crop factors and all of that so I'm not looking for scientific explanations, just your personal opinion. Thanks
Hi all, Here's one for you.I recently purchased a 70-210mm from eBay after reading plenty of good things about the bang-for-your-buck ratio of this lens. After some testing, I've found some interesting things: Between 200-210mm, taking a photo - at any aperture - on both my SL1 and a friend's t1i produces an immediate Err01 message ('clean the lens contacts'). The problem occurs on both manual and autofocus. The problem does not occur at any shorter focal lengths, tested across the gamut of...
Hi all!! I'm a newbie when it comes to the world of mirrorless cameras so it would be really great to get some input into the possible choices of mirrorless cameras which I hope that those experienced ones out there may be able to help me out with. This is what I'm looking for in a mirrorless camera: 1. Budget: below $500 ( although I'm willing to go up to $1000 if it includes the lens ) 2. Works well in low-light conditions. ( I find taking a tripod out to take a candid shot at night can...
Hi all, I'm new here, I'm a hobbyist photographer with lots to learn, I came here to look at reviews on some new lenses. I'm using a Canon 500D ( plan to buy a 6D) I have a EF 70 - 200 (4) lens, a 100mm Macro (2.8) Ef lens, other then the basic kit lens. I want a good everyday leave on the camera lens that will suit most situations. I'm thinking of going with the Canon EF 24 - 70 2.8 ll but then I don't want to regret the extra zoom the 102 gives me. Thoughts please & why.
I have a Sigma 1.6 diopter 52mm close-up lens. And now my kids want to get me something for my new FZ1000 (they'll be pooling on this gift). I'm thinking another close-up lens, but which one? 1. Raynox 250D or 500D 2. Canon 250D or 500D 3. Marumi +3 330 Will be doing macros (bugs and stuff), but don't know which lens will compliment the Sigma I already have. Doubt that I will be able to stack (don't even know if I'll want to stack) as the ring diameters will be different. Regardless of which...
Anyone have the a6000, and shooting sport's, soccer,baseball? I like the camera from reading about it ,but i would love too see some pic's. And how about the minolta 70-210 f4.lens on the a6000? I'm shooting now with a canon 500d and 55-250 f4.5-5.6. Looking to purchase canon 70-200 f4 if the sony a6000 isn't up to par.
