Hi, I am an amateur photographer who shoots mainly family, and on request friends parties, family occasions, portraits etc. I prefer documentary style photographs but I do some still portraits as well. A week ago I upgraded to Canon 5D Mark III with 24-70 mm 2.8 L II USM lens. I shoot in AV mode with single point or AF point expansion, ISO on auto. I am very frustrated as it seems I cannot get sharp images. I can if the object is still. But just today I was out and about shooting 3 kids to...

I am looking for an led lite system  to attach to my Canon camera to do video.  The videos I take during the day, with the sun causing problems, , the faces are all dark until the stage lights come on later.    I am reading the good & bad light systems.  I looked at the Yonguno YN300 11 LED video Light. What does anyone think about that product? Or write to me about any other product that may be better. A big thank U in advance is what I give to U for any help.

What I want to do: use an external flash far away from my camera with High Speed Sync. What I've got: Canon 5D Mark 3, Speedlite 430ex ii, Speedlite 430ex iii. As far as I tried I can't sort things up. The ex iii can work as a master and the ex ii can work as a slave but I couldn't figure it out.

Hi Everyone, I was just hired to be an in house photographer at a big cooperation.... and I am able to select my photography equipment I wish to use. I am torn between the Sony Full Frame and the Canon Full Frame. One reason is that I love the Canon Full frame but it can be a little heavy/bulky with the body and various lenses. But the image quality is amazing. A friend of mine just purchased the Sony Alpha 7-R II and swears that it has the best picture quality and since its mirrorless I...

i am using a Canon 580ex II on a bracket with my Canon 5D Mark III. The flash works fine directly on the camera. It only fires in full capacity when I put it on my bracket. This happens with each of my flashes (1 more 580ex II and one 580ex). I have also tried it on my 40d and have the same results.  I was using my flash for a photo shoot last night and they worked fine. Then, when I went to use it a couple of hours later, it only shot full strength. I could not adjust it at all. I use a...

Hello Folks! I'm hoping for some advice before I purchase a prime lens for my new GH4. My needs are pretty specific: Must be lightweight, under $1,200. manual aperture and focus, and ideally a declicked lens. I have one purpose for this lens and one purpose only: I want to do hand held shooting of tree and shrub foliage at the local Aboretum. Due to a hand disability I can no longer operate my tripod or hold heavy gear for handheld shooting. By way of background I'm a newbie shooting video...

I see some people using a Canon 1DX over a 5D3 for weddings, what are the real advantages? I read on forums that everyone is recommending a 5D3 for weddings specifically but what are the advantages of a 1DX over the 5D3 for this type of photography?  --Southwest Florida Wedding + Portrait Photographer | www.andrewdophoto.com
