For all types of photography except weddings. I am a student and i will probably buy vintage lenses as they are really cheap. Most likely m42 . However I think i might benifit from the full frame. Both are €299 the 5d however is off a family member. I honestly cant decide. I will get to try an Xpro 1 later this week but i have nothing to compare it to.  All help appreciated!

Hello Folks! I'm hoping for some advice before I purchase a prime lens for my new GH4. My needs are pretty specific: Must be lightweight, under $1,200. manual aperture and focus, and ideally a declicked lens. I have one purpose for this lens and one purpose only: I want to do hand held shooting of tree and shrub foliage at the local Aboretum. Due to a hand disability I can no longer operate my tripod or hold heavy gear for handheld shooting. By way of background I'm a newbie shooting video...

Hi I wonder if anybody can help me. Occasionally my 5D Mk3 says that the card is full when there are actually only a few files on the card and there is loads of free space. This has happened to both the SD and CF cards. I have tried shutting down, taking that battery out etc but this does not fix the issue. The issue also remans after I delete the few files on the card. The only way that I can get the camera to recognise that card is not full is to reformat the (which I do in camera). The...

Hi! Have been away from this forum almost 10 years. My old KM7D and 5D are both still like new and working well. Both have had this "first frame black" issue but after few repairs they have been working well. Only issue is with my 7D is that it will run out of battery in 2-3 weeks even if I don't use it. But the battery life is normal if I start using it after charging the battery (it takes that x- hundred of frames until the battery is empty). Anyone knows whats the problem? On my KM5D the...

I have decided to purchase a FF camera to copy the 4000+ slides that I have. I tried several ways to do it with APS-C and found it's not the best solution for me. Before jumping into the purchase I tried my rig on a FF film camera to see how it will work, getting the whole frame in is no problem but focusing is, I finally settled with the slide copier mounted on a 50mm/1.8 lens with 12mm and 36mm extension tubes and that allowed focusing. I then mounted this set up on my 70D and started...

I have a Canon 5D that has a serial number that begins with 053. I wonder if I can find out if it has the mirror issue fixed yet or not? Had Canon announced if it is possible to identify mirror issue using serial number?

I have recently bought a second hand Canon 5D Mark I and am keen to use a shutter release cable to explore long exposure photography. I have a RST-7001 remote switch, have bought the adaptor for the 5D but it will not work. The cable works perfectly on my Canon 600D. Any advice as to where I am going wrong.
