I've tried searching on google and also on here but haven't found an answer. When using the EOS app to remotely control my 6d, the hoe shoe will not fire a pocketwizard. If I mount my speedlight, it first just fine when controlling from my iphone. But the PW or any other dummy hot shoe mount that would give me PC plug will also not receive any signal from the camera.  Maybe I am missing something or have a setting wrong somewhere, but I can't find it. Everything works fine when I manually...

I'm a full time photographer, but recently my brother has asked me to do some youtube videos for him.  It will be talking head sort of work. Interviews with a few staff with some footage of their workplace. Firstly, is this even a good idea?  I'm not looking to do this commercially, but I'm looking to do a professional job for him. Because I record myself playing guitar a bit I have some gear. Video Cameras I have (or have available) include a 5Diii, a 6D and a 70D, and I can probably source...

We're going to be cruising around the tip of South America (Patagonia) and up Chile. I have a Canon Rebel T2i and I may be buying a Canon 6D. I'll be photographing penguins (10 ft to 250 ft distance) and maybe whales. I would appreciate any advice.  Do I need a lens that goes up to 400mm? Do I need a zoom lens? There's a Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM Lens that sounds good or the Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM Lens that is a heavy 3.7 lbs?

Hi, I have a Canon 70-300 f4-5.6 IS USM lens in combination with a Canon 6D. The problem I have is that at 70mm, I cannot seem to get the aperture lower than f5.6, where it should be able to go to f4. I've tried multiple settings (M, Av, full auto), but nothing works. Setting apertures larger than f5.6 is not a problem however. Am I overlooking a setting somewhere, which restrains me from going to f4 at 70mm, or might the lens be broken? Has anyone experienced this before?

Hi guys, I am using Aperture priority mostly, like 80% of the time. But sometime I like to use M mode. It annoy me that the aperture setting is on the thumb dial and shutter speed with the index dial. Is there a way to reverse the dials in M mode? I remember I did that with another Canon body, I did find how on the 6d... --JulienFlickr

I'm (yes) still using PS CS3.  Mostly for use with my old trusty Canon 5D.  I'm considering buying a 6D or 5DIII and wonder just how I'm going to work with the raw files.  It's been so long since I purchased PS that I'm not sure what the next step is.  Can you upgrade from CS3 to get some sort of discount or should I just shell out the cash for the latest PS?  Finally, what IS the latest PS?  I'm guessing PS CS6.  Also, I'm running Windows 7 on an older PC which is still working fairly...

Hey guys! I am on a SGD$2000 (about USD$1600) budget to get my FIRST camera! After hours and days and months of reading up reviews, watching video reviews, I have come down to 2 choices. These two choices fit my budget. 1) Canon 6D + Canon 50mm f/1.8 II 2) Fuji X100T I'm really torn between the two. I will be able to work with either the 50mm or 35mm focal length so that's not a problem. 6D Pros: Better low light & high iso performance, interchangeable lens X100T Pros: Sleek & small camera,...

Hi everyone, Just as I was upgrading from a 5D (first model) to a 6D, my 24-105L started giving me the Error01, and the aperture started getting stuck when stopped down. I took it to a local repair centre (with a good reputation although not The official Canon repair centre), and it was the aperture mechanism that needed replaced. So I had it replaced, and I've had it back for a week or so now. However, compared to the images I was getting with it on the 5D, it seems somewhat soft at 105mm...

Hey there, I'm in Tokyo at the moment and want to take the opportunity to get some new gear :) I had started a thread in the Canon Lens forum because originally, I was just thinking to get a couple more lenses : http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54716272 Currently I have a 15-85 EF-S and the 1.8 50mm cheap one. Very versatile, but I feel I'm not quite there when it comes to image quality, so I was looking to get a few primes maybe. But the more I read, the more I think I'd like to upgrade...
