I recently switched from Canon to Nikon, specifically from the Canon 70D to the Nikon D500. I'm an amateur wildlife photographer, with my knowledge of photography based on several books, internet research, and my own 3 - 4 years of experience. With my 70D, I was used to developing the raw files and being much happier with my version of the photo, in comparison to the JPEG created in the camera (I shoot raw + jpeg). My version was almost always sharper. I've been surprised to find that with...

I am looking for options on a good lens but one that will not break the bank since I just got the camera. I have a very old Canon 28-105 USM lens that doesn't seem to have the clarity I am looking for.  I am a new photographer and am trying to steepen my learning curve while minding the budget as well.  Being near the So Cal beaches I take a lot of pics down by the water.  I love shooting old buildings, bridges, sunsets. I am getting into landscapes as well.  Here are some examples of my...

I have read that the A7II switches from PDAF to CDAF under certain conditions, but it is not entirely clear to me when.  1. Certain low light levels 2. At a certain aperature... this is where I am confused. I have been told by one person on here around f6 and by another around f9.  I have not yet acquired the A7II, but once my 70D, some canon lenses and flash are sold off today I plan on ordering one immediately. I have been considering the FE 24-240 as my first and all around and walk around...

I just bought a Canon 70D body and used it for portraits for the first time with my EF-S 18-135mm lens and 430EX Speedlite. They were outside shots, sunny day, all taken in full shade.  Every shot taken at 18mm are quite soft focus.  All other focal lengths are very sharp.  This does not happen with my 40D body.  I was on P mode, shutter speeds were between 1/60sec and 1/125sec , all wide open aperature.  Anyone else have this problem or know what is happening?   Thanks

Hi All, need some advice please:-) Currently own a 70d with the 70-300L IS as my long lens. I love this lens, it's a keeper, but sometimes I'm left wanting more length as I'm getting more into birding/wildlife/water sports. So for my budget I'm thinking: Keep the 70-300L and get 400L 5.6 Keep the 70-300L and get Sigma 150-600mm contemporary Sell the 70-300L and get 100-400L II. 1. At first I was thinking the 400L 5.6 because I don't want to sell the 70-300L and I want L quality. 2. Then at...

Hi, My 70D reached 15k shutters in two years, I'm kinda worried about the shutter life and not making timelapse stuff. Should I lessen my use?

I shoot in the raw mode, now the question??  I have a 80D and a 70D , what are the advantages of using  one size raw over the other, other than the space a larger one takes in the memory card ???   I have been using small raw for a while, but I notice to do some in camera adjustments and other features it must be a certain size raw file or a jpeg file ...  thanks

Hello, I have had a 70d camera for the last few years and have been very pleased with it. However, something strange happened to it an it now only takes soft photos. It did get slightly wet a few weeks ago but seemed to still work fine at the time. It wasn't till a week or two later that I noticed the photos are soft or grainy; not at all super sharp like they've always been before. Could this have been from getting damp/wet? I've changed the lenses and tried all types of different settings,...

Hi,  I just bought a Canon 70D (W) body last month. I bought this for video blogging purpose.  I noticed, my 70D missing 30fps in Full HD mode & 60fps in 720P mode! Instead, my camera offering 25fps full HD & 50fps 720p Video.   Even, my friend  who has 70D has 30fps full HD in settings. We both have official firmware 1.1.1 version.  I am using Canon EF-S 10-18mm STM Lens with this body.  Any other user have this problem? or Anyone know the reason behind the problem?  Thanks in advance

I have decided to purchase a FF camera to copy the 4000+ slides that I have. I tried several ways to do it with APS-C and found it's not the best solution for me. Before jumping into the purchase I tried my rig on a FF film camera to see how it will work, getting the whole frame in is no problem but focusing is, I finally settled with the slide copier mounted on a 50mm/1.8 lens with 12mm and 36mm extension tubes and that allowed focusing. I then mounted this set up on my 70D and started...
