Mostly for portraiture and occasionally weddings.  Money is the issue.  I'm still half in and half out of doing this as a true business.  Time and my business skills (or lack of) will tell.  I'm still kicking myself for seemingly being asleep at the wheel, apparently, and not realizing I should have either traded in my original 5d or at least realized I needed to put some cash away for an upgrade.  Long boring story short, 2008 and the economy crash combined with me breaking my leg in two...

So, little info on what I got, what I want to do, and asking which direction I should be going... Since June of 2013, I have a little Sony NEX-F3, which for a newbie photographer like me has done a very good job. It came with it's standard 18-55mm manual zoom lens, and a few pretty crappy third-party wide-angle and telephoto lens adapters in the bundle that I bought (both of which I rarely used). Now, I primarily wanted this camera since it seemed simple to learn on, but flexible enough with...

I have a client who wants about 10 videos made for their corporate clients.  The videos would only be about 1-2 minutes each.  I'm happy to hire the right equipment for sound, but I want to know if a pair of 6Ds would be adequate for recording on. I've only ever recorded video for myself, although I have edited quite a few of these presentations where all the media has been provided (I use Premiere). Any feedback would be great (even if it's, "Are you out of your mind - don't be so stupid!").

I have a 6D and a Canon 430EXII flash.  What are my options for using the flash with (but off) the camera?

Hi guys, I recently got a Sony a6000 to replace my old Canon DSLR but that means finding a new bag for it as the old one is very impractical for it. What I'll need to fit: Sony a6000 16-50mm PZ kit lens 55-210mm lens 20mm pancake lens. Sony Stereo Microphone - ECM-XYST1M GoPro A couple of 49mm filters Spare battery and cloth So, I'm looking for something inconspicuous, that is, not like a camera bag. I have a Billingham Hadley Pro for my 6D and I'm really happy with it; it looks really...

After shooting with Fuji X-E1 for two years, I am going to upgrade to a fullframe. I can afford either D750+85mm1.8G or 6D+135mmf2L and portrait is my main interest. Since I am very new to DSLRs, your suggestion might come in handy. It is obvious that D750 is a head and shoulder above 6D, but I have heard that Nikon G lenses are not of high quality. On the other hand, Canon 135mm L lens is known to be one of the best primes at this focal length. Which one do you think is a better choice? A...

Can you please tell me how accurate the 6D peripheral focus points are? I want to get a 6D along with a 135m f2L lens for shooting portraits but I need to make sure that I can have the eye in focus using the peripheral focus points. Initially, I also wanted to get an EG-S focusing screen for manual focus but people believe it doesn't make a big difference compared to the stock focusing screen. Any comment would be appreciated.

Having trouble finding info on this one.  I've been using a mix of custom white balance and fixed Kelvin on my 7d and 6d. Doing this because I'm shooting subjects inside and outside, in plenty of different lighting. When I look the the images in lightroom, I notice the Kelvin number changes as expected, however I also see the "tint" setting varies as well. As there is no way of setting this from the camera, does anyone know how this value comes about? Is this just the way the CR2 file...
