Hey Guys! I have my Canon for a couple years now and it;s been doing greate so far until.... I have around 14 K shots so it;s not like it's heavily used. The issue at hand is that the camera can't Focus in AF mode. It tries to focus and just can't do it, after a while it will finally focus. It often comes close to focusing but doesn't beef, and the picture is just a tad blurry. I tried this with 3 different lenbses and it;s all the same issue. I tried in idfferent llighting and the problem...

Hello, I have unfortunately lost all my photo gear in an accident. My gear bag containing all my equipment got crushed under the wheels of a 40t truck. :( So I am back to square 1. I used to shoot with a Pentax K5 + Pentax K20D, a DA* 50-135 f/2.8, the DA* 16-50 f/2.8 and the F 70-210 f/4-5.6. Since I have to completely rebuild my full gear on a tight budget I have been studying several options. First of all I mainly shoot Football (Soccer that is for our US friends) Rugby Union, Polo and Ice...

Hi all, I have a Canon EOS 500D camera and would like to take some close up bird shots. I've attached a Kenko 2x teeconverter onto a Tamron 70-300 lens and have set my camera to take to shot, however on doing so I get a lot to shake/blur in the photograph, even after keeping the lens still and taking 10 shots at once. Please could you advise on whether it is down to the lens or simply just down to a beginners fault. I set my camera to Tv mode and followed guides to set the shutter speed to...

Hey there, I'm looking to buy my first dSLR, and despite looking at a multitude of different used cameras and reading reviews and getting conflicting opinions, I'm totally lost. I'm interested in photography, but have never gotten a real camera due to the high cost to get into it. I've only ever taken pictures on my crappy old flip phone, and before that, Kodak disposables. So I'm totally new to this game. I don't mind spending good money on something I know I'll use often, but I have no way...

Camera:  Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 (52mm thread) I want to use close-up filters for my macro/close-up work, but the Canon 250D, 500D and their cousins are a little too rich for my blood right now.  Can anyone suggest a good price/quality compromise (brand-wise) for a single-strength filter (+4 max)? Thanks for your help!

sample  I have a T1i and I can't find anywhere else to ask about this.  I was shooting with a 50mm 1.4 lens on auto, and this is with a tripod.  Even with my 75-300mm lens or the standard kit lens I will get pictures that will not autofocus.  I have taken sharp pictures with this body for a long while but all of a sudden it just isn't focusing as well.  I usually will have to try a good number of takes before I can get a sharp one.  Any ideas?

Recently I ordered the Polaroid Close-up filter sets, link , I tried it on my Nikkor 70-200mm F4 lens but it cannot focus at all. Then I discovered there is a similar product, the 500D by Polaroid.  Most reviewers said this filter worked fine on their telephoto zoom, like 55mm-250mm or 70-300mm, etc.  But they don't specify whether this filter would work on any focal length within those ranges. So to owners of the 250D or 500D Polaroid filters, can you tell me whether it works on any focal...

I would like to upgrade my old 500D canon model( (damaged) with a better one. I have no interest in video capturing. I prefer viewfinder to LCD screen. And normally I don't use automatic mode/setting. I cannot buy full frame DSLR due to budget constraint. Can you suggest a canon DSLR model that is appropriate for photography only? What specifications I should consider before taking any decision?
