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?

I've owned a Canon 15mm f2.8 lens for about 10 years now, shot a couple pics the other day using it with my 1d body (aps-h) and FF cameras I want to keep using it, but I just purchased a 7d (aps-c)... so my question to everyone and anyone is...   I would like to know if its worth me buying this lens to use on my 7d or if I am going to get the same shot with my 15mm fisheye. seems like an obvious answer but the 15mm fisheye is widder than the Canon 14mm L wide-angle, and other lenses also, if...

I took a number of photos, camera on a tripod, 50mm lens. The 40 pictures before this one came out fine. Switched dogs, and this is what happened. The background is much better focused, but for some reason, I missed the subject in these. I purposefully used a wide aperture to narrow the DOF, along with flash. Previous shoots had been with a 50D and I didn't really have this problem. So, I'm not sure what I did. Perhaps, as in the previous posting in this subject, I had too many spots selected...

Hi everyone, sorry to bother you with probably a very basic question. A good friend of mine has a canon 50D and repeatedly has an error 30 occurring. It seems that it is a shutter error and after reading a few posts, it looks like activating the manual sensor cleaning (that will flip the mirror up) a few times in a row might help to loose the shutter. Trying to do that with his canon, I could unfortunately not find the -> "sensor cleaning" -> "clean manually" in the menu. Am I just not...

Hi, I shoot with a harness and 2 cameras one is the 5d with 24-105 the other one was with a 50D with 70-200 zoom which I fasten the lens to my harness I have been doing this combo for several years without a problem, several weeks ago the body let go crashing to the street this was after several hours of shooting so I didn't think it was because I did not fasten the lens properly I thought maybe  I hit the lens release button without realizing it.Anyway now that my 50D is trashed I hooked up...

Hi all, I'm having an issue with my Canon 50D, I keep getting a message saying "Err 30 shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to off........." I've looked into it, and found its a pretty common shutter error. But I'm not sure what to do now. I've been all over the web reading forums, and watching videos. Some people say I can be fixed by cleaning the sensor (didn't work), or hitting it, or even pouring Isopropyl into the shutter button! And to send it into canon is going to cost more...

I could use some advice with camera equipment for a three-week trip (SF, California coast, Death Valley, Las Vegas).  I have a 50D (primary camera for the last 7 years) and a 7D (got it less than 3 years ago, but haven’t been able to spend enough time with it….). I find that I primarily shoot landscapes, architecture, candids of family (also in low-light situations), street/city scenes. I’m considering bringing one camera only (the 50D since I’m most comfortable with that and it’s lighter)....
