I just picked up the 7D and use my 50D as my backup. I am thinking about selling the 50D and moving toward my first Canon FF. The Tammy is designed to work with FF Canons, but would like to know if anyone has had any serious AF problems with this combo? --A purist at heart to protect the art

Went to rodeo last night and brought my Sigma for the longer reach. I was trying to use this on my new 7D and it seemed to work initially , but when attempting to use on my 50D and back to 7D , it never would work. Flash gave indication that it was in FP(HS sync) on sigma. But camera would not go above 250. Camera settings were good, as I had already had initial success. Tried reseating flash on hot shoe several times. cleaned contacts on both, still no avail. Never got it to work on the...

Hi everyone I am considering a pair of Yongnuo RF-603 radio transmitters to venture into off-camera flash use with my 50D/430EXII.  My question - if I later introduce a 580EXII as a second off-camera flash, will the 580EX be able to trigger the 430EX without another RF-603 transceiver?  So that's one RF-603 on the camera, a RF-603/580EX combination and lastly a 430EX to be triggered by the 580EX, all in manual mode of course.  I suppose a cheaper alternative would be another 430EX and another...

Anyone switch from 50d to 6d ? How was it, especially focus and shutter lag?

I use a Canon 7D camera body, but have a 50D as a back-up. The 50D has ~102,000 shots on it. The last time I used it was in January, and it worked fine. I tried to use it today, but it wouldn't turn on. I checked that my batteries were okay, and tried two different batteries that were fully charged. Any suggestions to get it to turn on? I don't want to send it in for repair, as my 7D has 135,000 shots on it, and I will probably get a new 7D and keep my current one as a back-up if the 50D is...

Recently sold the majority of my Canon equipment (50d) and lens to purchase the Olympus-DE-M1 and a 12-40mm 2.8 lens. As I get older don't want to lug around a heavy camera and lens any longer and thought the four thirds Olympus M1 sounded interesting. So here I am trying one out. Not knowing much about four thirds other than what I read on DP Preview it appears opinions are all over the map. Some love it and some hate it. So I am trying it on for size myself. I apologize upfront if in fact...

I am going on a last minute remote shoot and gear I'm taking is 7D, 50D, 70-200 F4, Tam 200-500 f5-6.3. Question is my Tam is more power hungry than the Canon 70-200 , but the 7D focuses faster. I have two battery packs and a remote charger for my 50D. Only one with my 7D. Simply, should I ..... 1) Go with 7D and 70-200 less power consumption2) Go with 7D and Tam 200-500. Picture quality seems better with this combo than on the 50D and the 50D 70-200 combo does well, but not as quick focusing...

Just wondering why still the pricing of the 7d is higher than the 70d by 300-400 dollars? Don't get me wrong. I love my 7d, faster AF, more accurate AF, raw/jpg button(thanks), qmenu button, still get to use my CF cards, 3 programming modes, removed the rarely used creative zone modes. My 50d will enjoy a much deserved rest as my backup wedding B/W and wildlife cam. The 7d feels to me more geared toward the serious photographer. Not much into the video yet, but can see it need later. always...
