Hi, I've just switched to Nikon D750 from Canon 60d and I'm trying to figure out how to use the back button focus on the AE-L/AF-L button. I've set it AE-L/AF-L to AF-ON in the menu under f4, but somehow I still seem to be able to half-press the shutter button to focus as well. Is there some setting where I can set the camera to focus only using the back button, and half-pressing the shutter does not cause a second round of focus? In Canon 60d when I use the back button focus, half-pressing...

I just bought only the body of Sony a6000 and now I am looking to see which lens to buy. I am not a professional and I only use the camera as a hobby and for family shooting (mostly outdoors). For the summer I was thinking to begin with the Sigma 60mm. I must say that I do a lot of pixel peeping and I like to get results as sharp as possible. 95% of photograph shooting is handheld... I do have steady hands and have experience with dSLR cameras (450D, 60D). Since I do a lot of handheld...

Hi, I recently got a Tamron 150-600mm for my 60D. After shooting for a couple days on a monopod, I've been focusing on using a proper long lens stabilization technique. I rest one hand on top of the lens and push my face against the back of the camera to stabilize the lens. However, I still see quite a bit of horizontal/side-ways movement in the viewfinder when shooting from 500-600mm. My pictures are coming out a little soft so I'm wondering if anyone can recommend how to minimize the...

Yesterday I went out looking to photograph a bushbaby in a tree at night. I had some (admittedly very limited) light on him from a strong headlamp and was using a 60D with a 100-400 I and a 430EX II. Three years ago, my XS with a 55-250 and the popup flash managed to lock focus on bushbabies at night. Last night I couldn't get anything to focus. The 430EX obviously doesn't do the whole strobe thing like the pop-up does to help focus in the dark, but there must be a substitute that can do...

Hello I wanted to find a wide angle solution other than 4/3 or M4/3 and after some reading, comparing and reviewing settled on the canon 10-18 stm . I need a wa lens for interior and architecture shots and this lens seems to be a great value , technically good enough and cheap. Now I have looked at Canon bodies and narrowed my choice to the 60 or 70D for 2 reasons : fully articulated back screen and electronic level gauge both on screen and viewfinder, the latter for times when i don't shoot...

Hi All, I'm new here and I have been using an old but very satisfactory Fuji X-E1 of late to capture pretty pictures of the night sky. I ended up with a Rainbow Imaging intervalometer style remote release, it works well. This remote plugs into the mini-USB port on the X-E1 and allows programmed timer releases as required. Typical exposure time is about 2 - 5 minutes, and I shoot a sequence and stack them with astro software. So, when I splurged recently and got the X-T1, I figured maybe I...

Hi! I am a strictly amateur photographer with delusions of grander things. I have a Canon 60D and while on vacation, my 5 year old Canon EF-S 17-85mm 1:4-5.6 IS USM literally died. I got the Err 01 error. After trouble shooting, it appears to be the aperture flex cable is the issue. I am having trouble finding a local repair shop in the Houston, TX area. I found a shop that will fix it for $95 plus shipping. Digging around my camera box, I found the standard Canon EF 28-105mm f/4-5.6 USM...

Hi all i have a canon 60d and I want to buy a wide angle lense. I am deciding between the canon 10-18mm and Sigma 8-16mm, but the canon looks better value for money. Has anyone used both and provide any advice ? many thanks in advance.

Hi there, I just purchased a Yongnuo MACRO Ring Lite YN14EX from B&H after doublechecking and hearing it was a decent flash for its price for my Canon 60D. I can't seem to get it to fire though, it is attached to the receiver atop my camera and still won't fire however it fires on its own its just not synced up to the camera, is there a setting that needs to be changed/what am I doing wrong? Thanks!

Is there anyone out there using the Canon 17-55 2.8 IS with adapter on the new Sony full frames or the a6000 ?  If so what type of results or issues are you experiencing? And what adapter ?  Trying to decide on going into these mirrorless with a bag of Canon Lenses and become pretty attached to the 17-55 on my 60d.
