Hello, I am trying to take pictures of a blue laser through a colloidal liquid. The pictures displayed on the LCD screen have a pinkish color (instead of blue). I have tried to change the white balance, but cannot get the natural blue color of the scene. I am shooting raw, so when I process the files on my computer, they have the right color tone. It seems that the problem arises only with the Jpeg preview which is created to be displayed on the LCD. However, I am also supposed to make a...

Cost aside and lets assume you have no Canon or Nikon glass. This is a fresh start/square 1. I have a through SLR/DSLR background but have not really searched for a DSLR in maybe 6 years since making some gear changes (short version) Anyway, a FF DSLR in some flavor is on my radar. Is their any specific feature between the Nikon D610 and Canon 6D that was compelling enough to make your final decision?

I own both a Canon 6D and a Nikon D610.  I have found the actual picture size of the Canon 6D is 76in  x 50in (5472x3648)  and the picture size of the Nikon D610 is smaller, 20 in by 13 inches(6016x4016) ,even though the Nikon is 24 MP vs 20 MP of the 6D. Why is this? I am using Infranview for  my viewer.  I have checked the  image size in the Nikon menu and it is set for "FX". All settings in both cameras seem to be set  o.k.  Why this difference in image size?  Thanks --Cheers

My 6D's multicontroller does not work sometimes. When I am viewing an image and it has been magnified on the LCD, when I try to scroll to view the left side of the image the multicontroller does not respond. It responds to up and down input and to the right but not left. This first happened about a month ago but started working properly again the next day. It failed again two days ago  but is working today. Has anyone else had this problem? I tried tapping around the multicontroller when it...

I have a self made light box allowing me to digitize my film slides. For that I need a flash which has to be put inside the lightbox and connected to the camera without line of sight. The distance between flash and subject/slide is very short so I should have the possibility to adjust the flash power manually, or to use a HSS mode (the A7r having a very low synch speed of 1/160 sec). I don't need TTL, but quite often the HSS mode is only available when using TTL.. so I may need a cable...

Hello people! Would you kindly help me? I have a ST-E2, a 580ex and 430ex. I use both in manual mode, so I can set the power level to my needs. Recently I´ve been thinking about getting a 270exII to use with my 6D, and I would also like to use it on my setups when needed as a third off-câmera light (maybe to do hair light, or little fill). These are my questions: 1) From what I´ve read, the 270exII have the option to set its power (manual mode) within the camera's flash menu. Will the flash...

I have two questions. 1) is it possible to have the viewfinder on while taking a photo, (as in, use the LCD as your monitor during photo? 2) Is it possible to have the Audio meter on screen during entire video recording period? Thanks everyone for your help.

Recently upgraded from a 60D body to a 6D body. I currently have a Canon EF 70-200 F4L lens that was very handy on my 60D the body (liked the greater reach on a crop body). With my new 6D body, I do not feel that this lens will give me the needed reach on my new 6D. Thinking of getting non L glass to replace it with more reach. Either the Canon EF 70-300 F4.-5.6 IS USM lens or the Tamron 70-300 VC equivalent. My budget does not allow for L glass, and I prefer a  lighter vs. a heavier lens....

I recently upgraded from a 60D body to a 6D body.  I currently have a Canon EF 70-200 F4L lens that was very handy on my 60D the body.  With my new 6D body, I am not sure whether this lens will give me the needed reach.  Thinking of getting non L glass to replace it with more reach.

This will be used mostly on my travels for landscape shots....

Hi  I am a new owner of 6D (upgraded from 7D) with 24-70 2.8L (non IS) and 70-200 2.8. I mainly shoot my family, vacations, and location i get to on business travel. I recently started shooting RAW (as instructed by the photography course i took a while back) Is there any difference in image quality between RAW and mRAW? from searching online i saw some samples that demonstrated a crop like difference, but the rest was almost the same.... Apart from storage (that is important i have on 32G...
