Already have to Canon 600's, an STE3-RT & a Yongnuo YNE3-RX under my MR14-EX. Considering adding a third 600EX to my setup, but am Curious about the overall performance & reliability of the Yongnuo equivalent at 1/3 the cost. What's the general consensus? Will I be disappointed with it compared to Canon's units? Cheers. --PhilCanon 7DII, 50D, G12, T-90, T-70, A-1

Hi I have a Contax/Zeiss 35-70mm f3.4 lens with an adapter and it worked perfectly well on my 50D, now I have upgraded to a 5D MkIII I'm having problems and wondered if someone on here could help. I use the Contax/Zeiss mainly for landscapes and am happy setting the aperture manually as well as focusing manually but I also like to use Exposure Simulation to gauge my exposure and Live View to focus. I could do this happily on my 50D but Live View and Exposure simulation doesn't work on my 5D...

Over the last 10 years I've owned 3 Canons, the 300D, 50D and the last three years the 5D III. In that time, I've taken around 60/70K photos mostly in RAW. The only software I've really used consistently has been Canon's Digital Photo Professional (v3 and now v4). BTW, I'm running Win 7 x64. I'm just an enthusiastic amateur - my main interests in photography are pretty wide ranging - travel, local history and buildings and sights, street photography, flowers and wild life, events I attend,...

Hello, I have a Canon 50D camera with two lenses: 18-55 and 100-300 (Old). I want to replace the old Cannon EF 100 - 300 mm  1:4.5-5.6 USM lens with a new telephoto lens. I'd like to hear recommendations about the following two lenses (or other): - Canon EF-S 55-250mm f / 4-5.6 IS STM - Canon EF 100-400mm f / 4.5-5.6L IS USM. I am aware that the 100-400 lens is considered a better one, but it is much more expensive and much heavier. The lens is mainly used for nature photos (for most of the...

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...

I have always shot sports, inside and out. Since purchasing the 50D my images are darker. I can't seem to customize it. Yes, I have read the manual with no luck. I shoot in manual or TV mode. my f-stop automatically adjusts. I use the 3600 ISO and the fastest shutter speed I can use and have an image that I can edit is 1/125. So, of course, with that I have much motion blur. My lens is a Sigma DC 18-200 mm F/3.5-6.3 OS Lens. Help please!

Hi, I have been using my 50D for several years now and its time for an upgrade. I have been waiting for Canon's announcement for its new cameras and now that its out, I struggling with which camera to get. I was hoping I could get some of you opinions. First, about me. I shoot mostly portraits in studio and/or natural light. So crisp sharp images at a variety of ISO settings is strongly desired. I am disappointing in the low light performance of my 50D. For personal use I would like something...
