Hi guys, I recently got a Sony a6000 to replace my old Canon DSLR but that means finding a new bag for it as the old one is very impractical for it. What I'll need to fit: Sony a6000 16-50mm PZ kit lens 55-210mm lens 20mm pancake lens. Sony Stereo Microphone - ECM-XYST1M GoPro A couple of 49mm filters Spare battery and cloth So, I'm looking for something inconspicuous, that is, not like a camera bag. I have a Billingham Hadley Pro for my 6D and I'm really happy with it; it looks really...

After shooting with Fuji X-E1 for two years, I am going to upgrade to a fullframe. I can afford either D750+85mm1.8G or 6D+135mmf2L and portrait is my main interest. Since I am very new to DSLRs, your suggestion might come in handy. It is obvious that D750 is a head and shoulder above 6D, but I have heard that Nikon G lenses are not of high quality. On the other hand, Canon 135mm L lens is known to be one of the best primes at this focal length. Which one do you think is a better choice? A...

Can you please tell me how accurate the 6D peripheral focus points are? I want to get a 6D along with a 135m f2L lens for shooting portraits but I need to make sure that I can have the eye in focus using the peripheral focus points. Initially, I also wanted to get an EG-S focusing screen for manual focus but people believe it doesn't make a big difference compared to the stock focusing screen. Any comment would be appreciated.

Having trouble finding info on this one.  I've been using a mix of custom white balance and fixed Kelvin on my 7d and 6d. Doing this because I'm shooting subjects inside and outside, in plenty of different lighting. When I look the the images in lightroom, I notice the Kelvin number changes as expected, however I also see the "tint" setting varies as well. As there is no way of setting this from the camera, does anyone know how this value comes about? Is this just the way the CR2 file...

Art of Headshots, beautiful energy  Dear fellow professional and aspiring photographers. The following written words will disclose one of my best kept secrets as a professional photographer, written to celebrate finding my tag line. Most of us, professional photographers are either solopreneurs, micro business owners and the very few may fall into small to medium sized business. Following years of hard knock we become specialized, most photographers realize that they are not a person and a...

Hi, My 6d has developed a temperamental problem with the Set button at the back. It usually works fine but occasionally it does stick or become unresponsive. Happened to me this weekend as I was shooting and ran out of space but I couldn't delete any pictures - frustrating as hell! I do use the camera on the beach quite a bit and suspect a grain of sand may have got behind the button! Is it possible to clean behind the button by taking the back off? Is this simple to do or would it need a...

I used to shoot Canon about 10-15 years ago, and I really enjoyed my 1D2 and L zooms but that was before I had kids and responsibilities. Come to now and I'm using micro 4/3 and am very happy with the portability and image quality for still subjects. I am especially happy that I can use a small but bright prime on a small body (Oly E-PM2 and 17/1.8) and snap what seems to me to be a natural field of view without even thinking. Put on facial detection and set for nearest eye priority, shoot...

I am in the market for a DSLR, and decided on a T4i. But my question is, what is the difference between the image quality of a Canon T4i and a higher end camera such as canon EOS 6D? Is the EOS 6D more expensive because of the improvement in image color accuracy and/or other functions? Is there a cheaper camera that produces the same image quality as the Canon T4i? What I am mostly concerned with is having good color accuracy in photos taken by DSLR I am to buy.

In a brightly lit scene both the metering in the viewfinder and live view provide the exact same result. However, in low light, the differences are extraordinary. In the examples below, I compare a 20D and a 6D. The metering system is set to exactly the same thing. All variables are kept as constant as possible. The differences are independent of things like JPG/RAW, stray light (low light so there is little to none), focal length, and mode (M,Tv,Av equivalent). By fixing the ISO and focal...
