I just got a 7DII, and I see that the file naming/numbering is: 400A0001 400A0002 etc. Is this normal and correct?  I thought it would be IMG00001 or something like that.

Ok, so i find myself in a strange position... i have been a pro action sports photographer for the past 15 years and for much of that time... since 2006... i have had a Canon 500mm F4 L IS in my bag. it has been the lens that has paid my rent, for the birth of my child, the food in our mouths... thats a bit dramatic.... but close enough to the truth. the strange part is, after all the years watching AP photogs walk up the stairs at the LA coliseum with the big white lens slung on their...

7d, 1/60 @ f/10 ISO 100, 31mm (EF-S17-55mm f/2,8 IS USM) I,m having trouble getting my images pin sharp. The active focus point is at the yellow trees in the center.

Is it my technique, my camera or my lense?

Hi folks, I don't use the 85mm very often but I wanted to take a few close up portrait shots of the kids and the AF was all over the place... I was shooting at 1.8 with the focus aimed on the eye and most of the results were inconsistent. I MAed the lens using focal on all three cameras ( 1D MKIV, 1DMKIII, 7D). Still, some times the lens would focus on the forehead instead of the eye, looked like front focus most of the time. Then I tried dottune and there was a big variation of the MA...

Seeing that there's the deal on ebay for an Import 7D Mark II for 1200, I'm curious what value you'd put on the US retailer version? I was about to order through Canon Price Watch, for less than 1480 for a US warranty version... but at a savings of 280, I'm wondering if it's worth it to pay the extra?

Can someone explain the best way to achieve exposure compensation on the 7DII in Manual mode using Auto ISO with buttons on the camera. I tried reading the manual and haven't had a lot of success.  --Thanks, John

My brother was always interested in using a telescope & was in heaven when he emigrated to South Africa 45yrs ago. I only took up photography 3 1/2 yrs ago with a keen interest in macro, but now feel like going to the other extreme & try astro. I have a 7D & 5D2 & have read a bit about combining one of them [7D?] with a telescope. Could someone please give me some advice on the pros & cons of using a 'scope as opposed to a long tele, like a 150-600? Any advice appreciated. My first time on...

I have a 7D with new Canon 100-300. The combo is heavy. Does anyone have experience with camera straps like  BosStrap, Rapid Magic, or CottonCarrier?

Can anyone help?  Really struggling to find an LCD Viewfinder to fit the screen on my 7D.  It's 2.5 inches wide but I can't find one smaller than 3 inches.  Have called Canon customer service who were unable to advise whether or not they even made a viewfinder for the 7D.  Thank you in anticipation!

The SD card has the low-level format option but the CF card doesn't. Could you explain why? Or is there a way to turn this option on for the CF card? Thanks.
