Hi Went out to shoot the nightsky tonight and I think I am struggling somehow with the Live View settings on the 6D. I am sure I made a mistake with the settings. In ISO 6400, 30 sec mode on my former 5D3 LV was quite bright so I could MF easily on the stars and got them tack sharp. What are your settings for LV in case you are using the Samyang? Thank you and regards, Peter in Switzerland. Please note the stars in the HDR: the whole photograph looks quite...

Hi, I am hoping this is a simple issue to fix but I haven't been able to fix it myself.   I recently purchased a new 5D mark iii a couple of days back and have started to use it for the first time today.  On looking at the image playback and the images on my laptop I have noticed there is a fine blue line that runs horizontally along the bottom third of the image. When I take a shot via the "live view" mode no such blue line appears on both image playback and viewing on laptop. As it works on...

Hello, I received my Samyang 14mm f2.8 last Saturday and since Sunday I did try out with my Canon 5D Mark III. I am a bit confused here, the aperture stays in f00 on the camera screen, although I did change from f2.8 to f22.  This morning I went back to the shop and asked whether this is a problem, as I find it a bit strange. I mean, last night I tried to do some night photography with live view active, and as I mentioned, on the screen the aperture says f00 despite the manual change. In the...

Hi, I have been using Canon 5Dii for about 4 years now, and back then I obviously didn't know if Canon was going to release 5Diii anytime soon...(which actually did happen several months after the purchase). In addition to that, my 5Dii purchase was rather an impulsive one, so I ended up paying the FULL value of the camera...! So every time I think about how DRAMATIC 5Dii's price have gone down ever since the 5Diii's release, I just cannot help but to blame myself for not doing enough...

Hello, I have to take a photo of a man in a small office overfulling with shelves, book, nik naks, etc. The office contents are very important to the photos, so it needs to be included. I've already tried with a 24mm on a full frame Cannon 5D Mark III and I can't get everything I need into the photo. Will a 14mm distort the man too much? Am I better off renting a 16mm – 35mm? I've never used a “ultra-wide” lens before.

Recently I am getting a card error on my CF cards on my 5D Mark iii.  The camera wont identify the card, however a few times after inserting the card I can turn off the camera and turn it back on and it seemed too work.  But when I put my card in my computer, it says it is unreadable and needs to be formatted.  I looked at the pins and they all seem to be okay.

About three months back I sent in my Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens in for repair to one of the two repairers Canon recommends in the UK. The lens had issues with sharp focus on distant objects, possibly caused by a drop. I've just received the lens back for the third time (the first time I'm pretty sure nothing had been done to the lens and the second time the issue was still present) and it still seems to have issues at low ƒ numbers. For a sanity check, please take a look at these two...

Hi guys and girls, Long story short. I'm thinking of moving from Canon to Fuji after testing X-T10 with 35mm and 56mm briefly today and very happy with what it can achieve for the size. While I was very happy with most features, there was one thing I didn't figure out during my short test.  On my 5D3, there are 2 custom drive mode where you can customise AF mode, drive mode, ISO, aperture and shutter speed, etc. I have C1 set as AI Servo(continuous focus), complete AF and high speed burst to...
