I have a 7D Mark 2 which I use for my three focus areas for photography:  wildlife, sports and landscape,  I do the three areas about equally and know the 7d is "better" for the first two . . . I am thinking of getting a second body for use with shorter lenses for wildlife/sports when I have the bigger guns out, which raises the question for me of APC-S or full frame:  Thoughts on advantages of sticking with same body for simplicity and ease of use or to optimize a bit more for landscape with...

Dear photography experts, I am a photography hobbyist learning to shoot weddings. A couple of days back, I shot my friends' wedding using a rented 5D M3. I used to check the pics after each click and photos were perfectly fine in camera. However, after I transferred the pics on to my hard drive using my laptop and the rented card reader (used a 32 GB Sandisk CF card @120Mbps), I found the pics to be corrupted. I had weird colours on all the pics from the card. The JPEGs look relatively...

I shoot a lot of outdoor portraits with my Canon 450D (Rebel XSi) and Canon 70-200 f4L IS USM and the results are very nice when the focus is right on. But only 20 to 40% of my shots are tack sharp, most of the time when my subject is not moving. The action shots and kids portraits are generally oof by a little bit. I am convinced that my techique is good because I never shoot with the 9 focus points on auto, I'm always selecting one of the spots. I've also read that you could calibrate your...

I just installed the utilities that came with my 5D3. Everytime I attach an SD card it opens. I don't see anything in preferences to stop that behaviour. Any ideas?

Hi, I have noticed today dark parallel lines on pictures I took during a concert. They are visible in certain light conditions. I am Concert photographer and never noticed this before. Please disregard the picture quality I choose one where these lines are seen best. They are less visible on the second picture but are still there. Somebody has a clue? Thanks Peter --**********

Hello!, i bought a couple of months ago a Sony Alpha 7 (the very first model), because i needed or wanted a smaller camera to carry around. For professional work i still use my 5D Mark III + (huge) AF lenses, because its very reliable, fast, silent etc.  The main advantage for me is the weight and size of the A7. I decided to borrow a Pentax 50mm (smc Pentax-m 1,7 50mm) and 28mm ( smc pentax-m 2,8 ). both are very small and pretty sharp. obviously i had to buy an adapter (for like $20)...

Hi guys! So I will be going on a holiday on a cruise from the Philippines, to Hong Kong, a few other places then back to Australia where I live and work. Parents want one last big holiday with my brother and I. I am also in the market to upgrade from my trusty 7D to a Full Frame, likely the 5D3 (I hope to get the 5d4 if it gets released before then) while I am there during the months of September and October. Anyone here recommend for or against making a purchase whilst in Hong Kong? I have...

I just found out last night about Magic Lantern from a friend.  He told me that I should install it in my camera.  I have a Canon 5D mark 3.  Is this a good product to install in your camera?  I read that it will cancel your warranty on your camera. Is this a good thing to do?  I thank anyone giving me information ahead of time.
