A request for advice regarding best (X-T1) setup for photographing butterflies and moths. Previously, when I used my Canon gear, I used to intersperse my Spring and Summer landscape photography with the odd session photographing the local butterflies, moths, bees etc.. In those days I used my Canon 50D with a 300mm f/4L IS lens and a 1.4x TC (the combination that I normally used for local bird photography with my Canon 50D). This gave me about a 0.33 magnification (on an APSC sensor) at a...

Having come from a 50D, I'm curious about the naming prefix on my 7D II.50D files were IMG_ prefixed, my 7D II prefixes them as 0F9A.Anyone know the expalnation of this convention.Thought it may be Hex for part of the serial number,but doesn't look likes that's the case. --PhilCanon 50D, A550, T-90, T-70, A-1Kodak DX4900, P850

I'm a full time photographer, but recently my brother has asked me to do some youtube videos for him.  It will be talking head sort of work. Interviews with a few staff with some footage of their workplace. Firstly, is this even a good idea?  I'm not looking to do this commercially, but I'm looking to do a professional job for him. Because I record myself playing guitar a bit I have some gear. Video Cameras I have (or have available) include a 5Diii, a 6D and a 70D, and I can probably source...

I have been having ad odd problem with my 50D for some time now. The problem only exists with my main lens - the EFS 17-55mm F2.8. When I place the battery in the camera the lens image stabilisation motor kicks in and starts shaking the lens around, you can hear it knocking lightly (the view through the viewfinder confirms the image is shaking). This will go on for a while / indefinitely - I can usually stop it happening by repeatedly adjusting the zoom and engaging the autofocus. If it has...

Is this a setting many would prefer to have turned off.Seems as if it overrides manually set exposure & flash compensations.I now realise why -2/3 Compensation made little difference in some early shots.   --PhilCanon 50D, A550, T-90, T-70, A-1Kodak DX4900, P850

I am going on vacation to Disney World on December.  I was not planning on buying the 7D MkII until January.  Currently I am planning on using my 50D for stills and an iPhone for video.  Is there any reason to upgrade my DLSR early? --http://phereo.com/50fa2bcee15585fb63000000

I'm looking to upgrade from my Canon 50D. I'm just wondering if getting a 70D would be the proper upgrade path or should I look at maybe the Canon EOS 7D Mark II? Thanks for any advice you can offer. --http://dreamer.smugmug.com/

So I have been using my Canon 50D for a little less than a year now and just the other day I came across a canon 5D for very cheap and is in excellent condition. I was wondering if it is worth it for me to sell my canon 50D with an 18-55mm kit lens and a canon 600EX-RT speedlite to cover the price of the 5D and hopefully a nifty fifty?
