While testing my new 3.0 filter, I was surprise to see that the 6D still autofocus (mount on the 24-105L). I only see dimly some very bright item with the view finder and yet, the autofocus still work... Is-it accurate or shall I autofocus without the ND filter in live view or directly in the viewfinder ? Would it be the same on other camera let say a 70D ? (I may buy it sooner or later)

If the sensor in the just announced G7 1" sensor is the same as the start-of-the-art 1" BSI in the RX100-3, I feel that increased the odds for Canon using a variant of the stellar Exmor 36 mpix full-frame in the 5d4 or 6d2. Or not? Caveat: it is still speculation that Sony 1" BSI being used in G7. Am I the only one who really, really hopes Canon takes the same "swallow their pride and losing face" attitude to help speed a competitive 5d4 & 6d2 to market? FWIW:I wasn't surprised that Sony sold...

I'm thinking of buying a Canon EOS 70D to replace my old EOS 400D which I use with a 17-40mm f/4 L and a 70-200mm f/4 L.  As I've not had video functionality before I was wondering whether I should buy the 18-55mm STM kit lens as I'm worried that the onboard microphone may pick up the sound of the 2 lenses when focussing, particularly the 17-40mm as this will be my usual lens.  Does anyone else use the 17-40mm f/4 for video and do you have a problem with the noise of the USM? Also, I briefly...

Hi. I 've had this lens for 6 years or so but have not used it much. I have recently noticed that it is very soft focused at 1.8 but does sharpen nicely further stopped down. Is this inherent for this lens? I tried it today on both my 6D and 7D with identical settings, 1.8 and then 5.6.The 5.6 was substantially sharper on both bodies even with substantially increased ISO for the 5.6 settings. Is this just the way this lens is? If so, am I better off with the 1.4 - is that sharper wide...

I just recently bought some 430 EXII's for my Canon 6d. I also purchased some Yongnuo 622c's to get them off camera. My old set up was the 7d and I shot with 430 EXII's off camera using iSync triggers and everything worked fine. With this new set up, I noticed that the camera will fire the flashes perfectly but the problem is that when I try to change the settings on the flashes it will automatically jump to whatever settings I have on the camera's flash menu. This means that I can trigger...

Greetings, I am an amateur photographer from south Asia. My primary hobby is photography (portrait, macro and landscape). I learnt photography theories since I was about 15 years old but just able to afford for a DSLR about 2 months back (July 2014). I think I learnt about twice as things during this 2 months than what I learnt in past 14 years. I originally planned to go for a Canon 7D but I found a Canon 600D at a bargain price (not so worthy bargain) and went for the 600D despite of my...

I currently have two primes (Canon 85mm f/1.8 USM and Canon 40mm f/2.8 STM) that I use with my 6D. The 85mm has good IQ, but the angle is too narrow for my liking. The 40mm is wide enough, but IQ is not great. I miss having a 50mm. I'm considering the Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM or the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM (not Art). I tried the Canon 50mm f/1.8 AF II, but it's too loud and too slow. I will be trading in my 85mm and 40mm when I purchase the 50mm. I'm leaning towards the Sigma, if it...

Hello, I'm planning on going on vacation with my Canon 6D (similar to a Canon 70D, equipped with Wifi), and I don't want to carry my laptop with me. Does anyone know a way where I could back up my pictures (in RAW) directly from the camera to a cloud service, by leveraging the Wifi feature to upload the raw files directly onto a public cloud ? Any creative ideas would be appreciated. I will carry my iPad with me, so if there is a way to use an iPad as an intermediary, then, that could be a...
