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...

Is it possible to tether 6D via wifi to your laptop?  Is it possible to do the same with the 5DII and III with the appropriate wifi adapter? Thanks

Hi, Both backpacks have similar designs -- the both offer side access which comes handy. Do you own either or both backpacks? Any comparison of the two? --Howardcameras: 5DII, 70Dlenses: 17-40 f/4 USM L, 24-70 f/4 IS USM L, 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 IS USM L, 24 f/3.5 TSE L, 35 f/2, 50 f/1.4 USM, 100 f/2.8 IS USM Macro L, 300 f/2.8 IS USM II, 430 EX II, 270 EX II, EF 1.4x TC III, EF 2x TC III, Kenko Pro 300 1.4x TCpersonal website: http://www.travelerathome.comblog: http://travelerathome.wordpress.com

I have four genuine Canon LP-E6 batteries that all show one red bar for battery recharge performance - i think this is bad news. I've always let my batteries completely discharge and then fully charged them, but wonder if this is the best pay to maintain optimum performance of camera batteries ? With my Mac Book and iPhone i've read you're supposed to recharge at 20% and only run it down to 0% once a month. What's the best way to get the most from my Canon batteries ? Is there any difference...

I'm shooting with a Canon 5DII and usually shoot with a 50mm f1.2 lens with awesome results so I'm confident the camera is fine.  I just got a Rokinon 14mm f2.8 and was super excited for it to arrive. I'd like to use it for astro and general super wide shots.  I'm finding everything I shoot looks like it's shot through a diffusion filter. It's quite horrible actually. I am a beginner/intermediate photographer and I don't have much experience shooting with very wide lenses, so I thought...

Hey out there! I'm filming with my EOS 5D Mk2 and looking for a good external EVF. Now I got stuck because of the HDMI output limitation of the 5D Mk2. Does anybody really know the resolution and codec of the HDMI output? - If this information on Magic Lantern Wiki is correct, thats a bummer for me! Because the HDMI resolution while recording is more or less same like the build in display of the 5D (640x480) :-( (And I'm searching for a high resolution...

My brother was always interested in using a telescope & was in heaven when he emigrated to South Africa 45yrs ago. I only took up photography 3 1/2 yrs ago with a keen interest in macro, but now feel like going to the other extreme & try astro. I have a 7D & 5D2 & have read a bit about combining one of them [7D?] with a telescope. Could someone please give me some advice on the pros & cons of using a 'scope as opposed to a long tele, like a 150-600? Any advice appreciated. My first time on...
