I just received a brand new Canon 6D body just a few days ago. The lens I'm using is one I've had for about 2 and a half years now, a Canon 50mm f/1.4. Last night, I went to shoot some night photography and when I looked at my pictures today, I noticed a couple white specks. I just tried a long exposure shot with the lens cap on and behold, there are two white specks in the picture. I know that people usually say that that occurrence is associated with the sensor of the camera, but since I...

Hey, I'm a photography student, who likes taking landscape pictures, portraits, events (music festivals), city scape and street photography. Now I have the one and only Fuji x100 and that camera just rocks. But now I want to build new system for maybe more professional use.  I have read lot of articles, forum threads about cameras and still cannot decide which one to grab. I was thinking about Fuji X-T1, Canon 6D and Canon 7D MK II. I'm still 22 years old, so not afraid of weight and size of...

Hi I'm getting really bogged down with stats and specs but think that a yongnuo flash could help me improve my photography. My wife paint animal portraits mainly dogs and horses and we take the photos ourselves so some gentle lighting to create more detail is needed. I dont see many of the flashes listed as compatible with the 6d but is this just because they came out before the camera?. I'm thinking that the yn560 and 568 look like what I could grow into but are the differences useful for...

I'm looking to buy a used copy of this lens to go on my 6D. When looking at the photos (mostly on eBay), I see the lens serial numbers ranging from several hundred thousand (xxx,xxx) to 4 million odd (4,xxx,xxx). This seems a vast range & seems to indicate some lenses are very many years old & some are much, much newer. Can anyone please confirm this is the case & that there aren't several "ranges" of serial numbers in use.  Also, a higher serial number is better, right? Many thanks in advance.

Hi all, What are your thoughts on the 5Dmk3 vs 6D for weddings? Also, if I only use the center focus point alone (which is my shooting style), is there a huge benefit of a 5D mk3 for me since it is $1,100 more? Pros and Cons of each if you don't mind. Thanks! --South Florida Wedding & Portrait Photographer (www.andrewdophoto.com)ILCE-A7 | ILCE-7M2 | ILCE-7S | 55/1.8ZA | 24-70/4ZA | 35/2.8ZA | 85/1.8 Batis | 70-200/4G

I select spot metering but activate all eleven focusing points. What is the resulting effect? Looks to me kind of cognitive dissonance ... Thank you, Yehuda

I'm planning full frame migration.. I thought switching to Nikon since they have acceptable autofocus in cheap FF body such as D610 compared to Canon 6D. Nikon also seems to have better sensor But I really like EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM for its price. Nikon does not have such lens. There for I have to buy 5D mk III and stick to canon when migrating.

So, I have an a7II and a 55/1/8 rented right now, and am having a couple of strange things with the EVF. I don't know if it is something I have set wrong, or my eyes are weird, or if it is just the way it is. First, I see like 'shimmering' on highlights and along edges, like with changes in the view/resolution, like it is pixelating. I have focus peaking turned off, so that isn't it. It reminds me somewhat of the EVF on the X-T1, which seemed not sharp, but more like liquid-y. The lower-rez...

Hi. My question is regarding tethering when using studio flash. I have managed for years without tethering but recently thought I would give it a go. I am using Canon 5DII and 6D tethered to a Hudl2 using DSLR Controller. Lighting varies but is often strips powered by 3k packs. It all works fine in ambient light. Not so with my flash setup. The difference between the output of the flash and that of the modelling lights is so great that when the camera is set for the correct exposure the...
