I have a question for Canon shooters who have used 6D or 5DMKIII. How many stops can you push the RAW files before shadows and blacks start looking ugly and unnatural. I had almost made my mind on getting a D810 due to the huge DR offered by the Sony sensor but I understood that Canon live view implementation had some superiority that I found hard to ignore such as EFCS or shorter shutter lag. The only thing that I am concerned about is this infamous shadow noise of the Canon sensor. Can you...

I have a question regarding live view implementation on the 6D and 5DMKIII. With live view simulation on, does the aperture closes down to the selected aperture or it stays open until the the Depth of Field Preview button is pressed down?

Ok, so i find myself in a strange position... i have been a pro action sports photographer for the past 15 years and for much of that time... since 2006... i have had a Canon 500mm F4 L IS in my bag. it has been the lens that has paid my rent, for the birth of my child, the food in our mouths... thats a bit dramatic.... but close enough to the truth. the strange part is, after all the years watching AP photogs walk up the stairs at the LA coliseum with the big white lens slung on their...

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...

I am using White Lighting 600 ultras and connecting to my 5D with a sync cord to the cameras pc connection. I like to know if this is safe or if I can fry the camera electronics as I do not have a radio slave and am aware of using high voltage Speedlight's that can fry circuitry. Thank you all for your input.

Hello all, I have been trying to gauge some things in terms of what type of camera I want to keep/use full time. I'm a past canon lover (had the 70D but had to sell for unexpected medical bills for my daughter when she was in the NICU) and I really want to get back into it. I have an NEX 5T currently, but my wife has really wanted to take ownership of that. I have a quick question. I've never made the jump to FF before, however, always drooled over them. Things are very tight financially for...

My questions is, can i set my shutter and my iso and let my aperture be variable when shooting video? Sounds simple enough but i'm not that up to speed with Canons.  Cheers

Does anyone know if the above camera has an in camera rating system like the canon 5d had?I'd love to rate or star an image out in the field so it transfers to the computer with a tag/star in it's info. Can't find info on this anywhere so would appreciate a tip if anyone has found a workaround on this. Thx / T.

Hi, I recently purchased an apple USB camera adapter in attempt to connect my iPad to my Canon 5D MK III as a monitor after seeing this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vT0RqInP-tU I've since realised that this way requires a jailbroken iPad which I'd rather not do, does anyone know of any other ways of setting this up?  Would appreciate any advice.  Thanks,  Rory

I own a Canon 5d mkii. I have about £2000($2926) to spend on 2 lenses. I want to buy a telephoto and a macro lens. I currently have the Canon 100mm L Macro lens. I want the macro lens to be able to shoot subjects from longer distances than the 100mm L and/or make tiny subjects look bigger. I have looked at: Sigma 180mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro Lens Canon MP-E 65 f/2.8 1-5x Macro Lens Also I want a telephoto lens. I have looked at: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM A professional...
