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?

First of all, this is my first post on these forums, so hello all! :-) Anyway, I just bought a Canon 70-200 mm f/2.8 USM (non-IS version) and thought I'd practice shooting some cricket with it. However, I was a little disappointed at the chromatic aberration on some of the shots - the picture below shows a fairly bad case of this. The first is a 1:1 crop in Lightroom that shows some CA on the batter and a lot on the umpire, the first is the original image (converted from RAW to JPEG with...

Could I ask for some advice please. I'm using a 7D with 70-200 IS f4 L to capture record shots of butterflies and would like to dip my toe in to macro before committing to a macro lens. At the longer focal length of the 70-200 my reading suggests a close up "filter" lens is a better proposition than extender tubes. I'm probably going to go down the used canon 500D close up lens route. The 500D is available in 58mm and 72mm filter thread sizes. The filter thread on the 70-200 is 67mm. I could...

Hi all! I'm headed to Maui in October. I was wondering what camera I should take for snorkelling. I have a Canon Rebel T1i, Go Pro HERO or Canon 6D. I'd be willing to rent housing for them. Also any idea how well a speedlight would work?  Thanks in advance!  Karla

My bud has a nikon d90 and she uses her 50mm lens all of the time. I LOVE the results she gets. I am really interested in getting a 50mm fd lens (with an adapter of course) for my 500d. I just dont understand how it works properly. I know I need to meter it myself and such...what else????
