I am testing a 7D with 600EX-RT and YN-E3-RT. The units communicate correctly, however, I can only get a weak flash attached to 7D. I have tried many flash settings to no avail. Ironically the setup works fine with my Canon XSi. I updated the YN-E3-RT firmware to v1.20 and the 7D firmware to 2.0.5 and still same problem.

Whatever the future of the N1 system, I have, 'with eyes open', invested a fair bit in it and there is no way that I'm going to invest in a new latest-and-greatest system from any manufacturer - including Nikon, even if they come out with a larger sensor mirrorless system and certainly not the new DLs if/when they ever arrive. So it's here to stay. So the question, and GAS, being what it is: Do I invest in a J5 (prices dropping) with a better sensor than my V1 (love the grainy B&W images) or...

Price difference these days is negligible, but most review sites are NOT very helpful with a comparison. And what of the UWA Tokinas vs Sigmas? --Sensors capture and render that light, so best sensor always wins despite glass outlasting the sensors.

When I half press the shutter button on my V1 I see multiple green rectangles in the viewfinder. I cannot see any pattern to where they are placed. The manual does not mention them. Anybody any idea what they might be?

I own two V1’s and am very happy with the IQ. I am considering adding an AW1 + AW zoom for outdoor activities in the rain. I remember reading quite a few testaments of flooding when used in or near water (e.g. river rafting), but I cannot find any reports of flooding problems due to rain only. So I have a couple of questions: 1) Has anyone ever experienced (or read of) flooding due to rain? 2) Has anyone who recently acquired a new AW1 experienced flooding problems in or near water? 3) The...

After upgrading the firmware on my RX10 M2 from V1.20 to V1.30, the lens moves in and out briefly after the power is shut off, then fully extends. Otherwise the camera functions normally. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I tried reverting back to V1.20, but the installation software won't allow you to install an older firmware.

Is there anybody who is considering to get this lens for the V line?  I wonder if it is silly to replace the 30-110mm with this 50-100 lens? I am not totally happy with the 30-110 as it doesn't let in enough light in many situations. But with this new Sigma, I guess the low light image quality may improve a lot, especially one needs to crop images like birding? Also I feel their focal lengths are similar. What are your thoughts about this combo? Has anybody already tried this Sigma on any V...

Hi DPReview! Long story short - Just returned from a photo shoot 4-hrs away, got to post-processing my images, and found that I was not able to generate a custom color profile for my lighting. (This is the first time I've encountered this unfortunately, and I'm hopeful you can help!) Software: Mac OSX 10.11.3; Color Checker Passport v1.1.0; Camera: Canon 7D ii I'm getting an error message when trying to create profile. "...Application has detected one or more color channels are clipped... a...

I am wrestling with the title question and no one I have talked to can answer it...yet. The Nikon P900 can go to 2000mm optical. But this is not about the P900. The question is really "how far away can a long lens resolve feather/eye detail in a large bird...eagle for example.  Here is my argument..... I believe that a lens must have some optical properties tied to physics that says for example that any lens can resolve small detail only to a limited distance. Beyond that distance the lens or...

I decided to move to M4/3 sometime this year coming from Nikon V1 + 2 kit lenses (10-30 and 30-110). Choose M4/3 because of size like the V1. I already have enough budget to get me started (about $2.5K US) Here are the items I'm looking for: Body: I’m not much into video so not really a big deal. Has to have a EVF Oly EM-5 II ($999.00) Pen-F ($1199.00) Pany GX8 ($998.00). Also considering a used EM-1 Lenses: I would like to start with at least 2-3 lenses, a fix wide or normal for indoor and...
