I don't understand why Canon will not allow finer increments in ISO when set manually. Only full stops. I know Auto allows 1/3 stops but not manually. What is the big deal. Is Nikon the same way with the lower models. I have the 600D T3i and it has Magic Lantern and its so nice to be able to set the ISO to 160/320/640/1200 and so on.... My Panasonic Gx8 also allows this. I use it all the time on my 6D so since the T6S is a mini 70d why not allow it.  I would love to  upgrade from my T3i but I...

When taking this tele-landscape, I am not sure where to focus and what should be the f-stop. Exif: 6D, 1/320, f/16, 220mm, ISO 640 Any advices for taking tele-landscape photo in general and any advices and comments for this picture? Please upload your better pictures. It is easier to learn with your good examples of tele-landscape. I would like to have the deepest DOF. However there are factors which I am not sure how to prioritise and compromise: - The DOF of long focal length is usually...

I have a cheap intervalometer which I bought from Amazon some months back. It worked like a charm and I made beautiful timelapses. But now when I tried using it after 2 months, its not working. It makes the camera focus but the shutter never clicks. I need serious help here. Something's wrong with my remote or the camera? What should I do? I tried changing the batteries, and also restored factory settings on my camera. Canon 6D Thanks

Hi Went out to shoot the nightsky tonight and I think I am struggling somehow with the Live View settings on the 6D. I am sure I made a mistake with the settings. In ISO 6400, 30 sec mode on my former 5D3 LV was quite bright so I could MF easily on the stars and got them tack sharp. What are your settings for LV in case you are using the Samyang? Thank you and regards, Peter in Switzerland. Please note the stars in the HDR: the whole photograph looks quite...

This is more a general question regarding Canon, When I first started taking pics with my new Canon 6D I found the images were all sorted/saved into separate folders who's name was in a format of ###__##. The first three digits appear to be an incremental value starting with 11* and the fourth/fifth digits were relative to the month in which the images were taken. Shortly after removing the card (and I think formatting it) the naming convention changed to just putting all files in a single...

I have this problem: occasionally when I'm at work as a press photographer and need to use flash, there's no time for me to change the settings on my manual flash as the light can change so fast and also the situations. The flash I'm looking for will be used on the camera mostly. So now I've decided to go for an E-TTL flash. As I have a Yongnuo system with flashes and transcievers, I'd like to stay with Yongnuo. If I've understood it right, I have 2 options: 568 EXII or 600EX. I would also...

Hi there, I'm going to Finland in March to hopefully see northern lights and ATM I do not own any camera kit :) Which is currently the smartest buying in the FF district? Apart from the northern-lights, I would like to use this camera for other works as well (landscapes, my little baby, macros...) With specific regards to the Finnish trip, my very preliminary thoughts are: canon 6d + canon 16-35F4 sony a7ii + sam/rok 12mm or 14mm I need guidance ;) thanks in adv cheers
