I heard somewhere that a photo from a new medium-low quality camera with lots of MP is not as crisp or good as one from an older REALLY good camera with less MP. What I want to know is, if I got a 1d (the first one. not the mark anything.), would it rival the quality of a T3?  I have a T3 but if I could get a 1d, it would be a whole lot cheaper than getting a 5dIII or II for that matter. I would be getting a full frame with 8MP Vs. a T3 with crop sensor and 12.2 MP.

Friends, I will be going to italy for a 25 year wedding anniversary in a month. I am an amateur photographer. I am concerned that while my Canon 70D w/kit 18-135 lens and ef 50mm f/1.4 is a GOOD rig, a full frame sensor body 5D Mark iii and L series lenses would be MUCH more noticeable. I know its the photographer not the camera, but better gear gives you the potential to get better images. Thoughts please? Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know if the Canon 5Ds/SR SD slot supports the UHS (Ultra High Speed).  Apparently without UHS or UHS1 the maximum speed that can be utilized by the camera if you are using both the compact flash and SD slots simultaneously is 133x.  I currently have the 5D Mark III which is subject to this limitation.    Also I currently run 64 GB compact flash and 64 GB SD cards on my 5D mark III without any problems.  Are there any issues with running 128 GB cards on the 5D mark III or 5DS/SR.

Thanks to many of you on this forum I recently graduated with my degree in professional photography and I'm now preparing to open my own photography business.  I will have a small studio in my home and I will also be doing some location and environmental work.  My focus will be portraits and high school seniors and of course my equipment budget is limited.  I plan to start out with: Canon 5d Mark III, two Einsteins, and two Canon 600EX-RTs, a light meter, and a radio triggering system.  I...

Ever since the announcement of the A7R II, I've been thinking about choosing it over the upcoming Cnon 5D Mark IV as the upgrade to my 5D Mark III. But one concern I have is over the lens choices.  I love the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L II as a great all-around lens. I also love the Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 lens on my E-M1 for the same reason. I've always loved the convenience and image quality of high-end standard zoom lenses, so I'd like to have something similar if I do end up going with the A7R...

I have auto power off set to 2 minutes. If I switch into Live View (without taking images or recording video) the entire camera shuts down after a variable amount of time.  By "shuts down" I mean that the camera appears to be powered down, and to recover I have to move the power switch to OFF and then back to ON. Here are scenarios I've experienced: Recording video, camera shut off after 4 minutes Subsequent to that it started shutting down after ~25 seconds, several times in a row, also...

I have the Canon 16-35mm f4 IS lens, I'm wondering if I should buy the Canon 35mm f2 IS lens. I understand both lenses are completely different lens, but would getting the 35mm prime lens be not very practical? Since I have the focal length covered, plus I'd recently got the new 50mm 1.8 STM. Currently I'm using the 5D mark III for various applications from landscape photography to casual street photography and occasionally cinemagraphy; I do not rely my photography equipments to make a...

When i try to shoot using slower shutter speeds the image gets overexposed. The exposure meter is always towards the left. I use a 50mm lens and have tried all the aperture ranges from f1.8-f22 and ISO from 100-8000. Every time the picture gets overexposed. This is when I try to capture a waterfalls for that creamy fall effect. But when i try to capture those light streaks from vehicles on road its coming good.  I once rented a Canon 5d mark iii and while using that i tried some slow...

(Edited to add an approximate price range to the title)Hi all ... (I had a post typed but lost it when I accidentally used a keyboard shortcut for navigation, instead of typing a special symbol with alt keycodes due to a numlock user error. So I'm gonna try to retype what I can...) I've been using a Velbon CX-690 tripod that I bought about 7 or 8 years ago at Fry's for around $60-70 or so, and while I've been able to get some fairly good use out of it, it's time to replace it. It's lasted me...
