Hi. My question is regarding tethering when using studio flash. I have managed for years without tethering but recently thought I would give it a go. I am using Canon 5DII and 6D tethered to a Hudl2 using DSLR Controller. Lighting varies but is often strips powered by 3k packs. It all works fine in ambient light. Not so with my flash setup. The difference between the output of the flash and that of the modelling lights is so great that when the camera is set for the correct exposure the...

I used 5D3 for a few hours and was very impressed by its AF. Expecially its handling with 50/1.2.  As a 5D2 owner, I have waited for a while to update body, but not convinced yet... Thank you for your inputs.

I haven't posted to these forums in well over 5 years, but I'm considering spending some money to replace/augment my EOS 50D and bevy of 35mm lenses with a 35mm sensor, and don't know if I should go with a Sony for the new back illuminated sensor and AF or Canon EOS 6D for the price tag, or a used EOS 5D II or III, or go with the 5DS for 50MP. Decisions, decisions... If you had my equipment, and would be adding a DSLR body, which one would you pick? FWIW, I sometimes buy some film and use my...

Enjoying my 5dsR, shot around 5000+ aerial shots so far in the two weeks since it arrived.  One thing I have noticed in several images is magenta colors in the highlights.  So far it has only happened in backlit shots of water/waves but it is difficult to remove the magenta cast in LR.  I darkened these images to accentuate the magenta and exporting as a JPEG seems to minimize the effect a little (magenta cast is stronger in raw image). I never experienced this in the 5D or 5DII.  Anyone have...

Who has experience using the 5Ds or 5Ds R for 2+ minute exposures? How was the noise? How well can you recover shadow detail? Light leaks? Any surprises? I'm considering the 5DS R or Sony A7R II (after it's been reviewed). I have an assortment Canon and Zeiss EF lenses and used to have a 5D Mark II, then went to the Sony A7R w/Metabones adapter. The A7R sensor has been great for long exposures. The issue that I have with the A7R has been the shutter shake with the telephoto during regular...

Hi all,since some time I'm looking for an ILC camera and I've narrowed down the choice to three cameras:The Canon 7D, Pentax K-5 II and the Sony A6000. I now these cameras quite differ from each other!What's (do I think) important for me?- Good autofocus and some tracking capabilities- Video features- Nice out-of-the-camera colours in JPEG: I've better things to do than correcting colours of family pictures in post – but setting the exposure manually shouldn't be a problem. And for really...

Does anyone know if the focus micro-adjustment feature is available in 5dII and if so, how does one use it?  How do you know how many numbers to dial?  Thanks

I'm planning on getting one or more battery packs for recharging several electronic devices when I am off grid. I make backcountry shoots where I don't have access to AC power but return to car and camp nightly. Conceivably I could use an inverter to power the E6 charger, but I'm looking for something a little smaller with a direct DC to DC transfer. Can an LP-E6 battery be recharged, either in the 5D Mark ii or externally, from an external battery pack, such as the Monoprice 10831? I can't...

I am sure this is a dumb question, but here goes: What is the purpose and function of the safety stop screws that come with some (but not all) Arca style camera mounting plates? When does one use them, and for what? I have been looking for an Arca type plate that a) could mount the tripod on either axis, and b) has a boss or slot to permit mounting a hand strap to the plate, and c) has one or more well-placed accessory mounting holes in the bottom of the plate to permit directly mounting a...
