  • Using AV and Tv is a good step away fm the fully automatic modes, so that's good  to try. Canon's Digital Photo Pro is free with your camera and can handle Raw images pretty well.  Adobe Lightroom ...
  • The 6D is clearly the least complicated full frame camera Canon offers. But you really don't need a full frame camera to learn the basics (and more ) of photography. Start using your existing ...
  • I would take Option 3 and keep my money.  The 6d's center AF point is perfectly capable of staying with a toddler. The picture of your son is simply showing the limited depth of field at f/1.4 - ...
  • For this one I climbed the hill overlooking the Grand Prismatic Spring and used the 100-400mmII rather than the wide angle. I couldn't get quite high enough to capture it all at 100mm but didn't ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
    Yellowstone - Grand Prismatic Spring
  • There's no doubt that off-camera flash can make a large difference with shots like this one. I don't know the cost of Nikon flashes but the Yongnuo ones for Canon have a pretty good reputation and ...
  • I agree with Abu. I'd recommend continuing to save to buy an 80D rather than dropping $500 on a 7D at this point.
  • Good luck with your choices. Now it's all up to you to create great photos. I'd say you owe it to the forum to come back and post some samples later on!
  • You've got a long time before she moves to the full field at U12/U13, so there's no rush. I use the 100-400 II for full-field soccer right now and find it the perfect length. I can park on the end ...
  • That does seem very high. To OP: try using Manual mode with f/4.0(will shift to f/5.6 as you zoom), 1/600s, and auto ISO. On a bright day you should be no higher than ISO200. If you have a very ...
  • Youth soccer doesn't really move that fast. Use single-point AF with the center point on the 6D and he'll be fine. I use mine with the 100-400mm II for high school soccer played in the evenings ...
  • I wouldn't rush to buy four more lenses. Take your time adding to your kit; Canon will always be ready to sell you more gear.  Consider what new lenses will complement your existing lens. -The ...
  • This is a very tough call. When your daughter graduates to the full-size soccer field you're really going to want the extra range beyond 200mm. I went through the same situation. Wound up buying ...
  • What do you mean by the aperture feeling 'limiting'? Do you have to raise ISO higher than you'd like? Are you looking for a shallower depth of field? Are you using your 60D or 6D for this? What ...
  • I'd be fine with no 4K video but a camera released in 2017/18 without would seem pretty crippled, IMO. Smaller is nice but I'd give up size for that articulating screen.
  • I think that's pretty close. For me, the key point would be the improved DR of the latest sensors with a modest(24MP?) increase in resolution. That's probably not the full 5D4 sensor. Pair that ...
  • An indoor party? If I owned it I'd bring the 24-70mm II. You can't control the size of the room and framing possibilities so a single prime lens seems limiting to me. It's reasonably fast and the ...
  • I'm not a big video shooter either but I was at Yellowstone and GTNP last year and took some video of Old Faithful with the SL1. I set the proper exposure in Av mode for stills and then switched ...
  • My understanding of ETTR is that its benefit comes from taking full advantage of the analog to digital conversion process of the signal chain. This is because the way the ADC works is that each ...
  • When the reviews talk about exposing for the highlights and pushing in post processing they mean that you should push only the shadows rather than the entire exposure.
