  • I dunno. '$500-1000 from Best Buy' is definitely NOT a 'high end camcorder' in my book. High end would be more like this one: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1277528-REG/panasonic_hc_x1_4k_u ...
  • Try testing your 18-135 lens out and see if you can get it where you want it with MFA. My own typical loadout for 80D is 17-55 f/2.8, 70-200 f/2.8 II, 50 f/1.4
  • One of the things about the beginner is usually a beginner was not sure about how much he wanted to get into photography, and therefore opted not to spend too much.    Storage cards used to be ...
  • The image is really shrunk, if original resolution was posted, it might have been possible to compare kid's ears and hands.   At this resolution, kid looks entirely in focus, so I don't think it ...
  • I use a 32"  4K, and I would say CS6 interface is borderline.    And I have darn good vision.   4K without properly scaling UI on a 27" would be too small, IMHO.
  • I use Manfrotto MVH500AH head, and find it quite nice. It only has locks, and drag is constant - you just need to apply a bit more force for faster tilts/pans. The 502 model has adjustable drag ...
  • You need FireWire (IEEE 1394).   Your PC needs to have one on-motherboard, or you need to get an add-on card.   You also need a 4-to-6 pin FireWire cable You also need software.    I really like Sc ...
  • The Adobe solution for DVD (and Blu-Ray) authoring is called Encore, and is designed to work directly with Premiere and other Adobe tools. In order to be understood by a typical DVD player, the ...
  • I ended up with a dedicated camcorder (Canon XA20) for my video needs...
  • I like my tools to be hand-filling, well braced against the palm, not grasped with fingertips.   I find 80D size to be quite comfortable.  And I prefer larger lenses, too.
  • Two primary factors are lens focusing system and lens max aperture. In a higher end lens, fast ultrasonic ring motors drive the focus assembly real fast, better keeping up with commands received ...
  • Well, there is an EF 11-24 f/4L      But is's about 3 times your budget...
  • Pretty much any travel, there will be places where you want to go wide and plenty of cases where you want to get a detail in the distance. My typical combo is EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM and 70-200 ...
  • I use LR6 (with latest update) and PS CS6 (the last version that was available pre-CC).   LR has no problem handling 80D files, and I can open and edit these files in CS6 from LR.
  • Whatever. I dabbled in 3rd party cartidges for my Epson printers, as well as buying ink and refilling.    Maybe I never hit on a 'proper' brand, but every single print I made with 3rd-party stuff ...
  • I wonder what will happen when someone demonstrates ability to weave explosives into a fabric, so that a jacket might contain an equivalent of 100-200g of C4. And just as article states, a laptop ...
  • Who told you that?    My UHS-i cards do 90MB/s just fine when used with a quality USB 3.0 reader. And '24mp' doesn't tell us much.   Unless you plan to shoot a lot of high-speed bursts, the speed ...
  • Chances are, you will upgrade long before your shutter wears out.  More expensive models, designed for a lot of work/long haul, have tougher shutters.   I.e 1Dx Mk2 has a 400,000-rated shutter. And ...
  • I use BR strap.   I got one BR lug on the camera body, another on the foot of my 70-200 2.8.   When I switch to a different lens, I just clip the strap from one lug to another.   If I know I only ...
  • I don't mind extra size/weight.   And I knew that if I got the f/4, I would always have that 'should have gone for f/2.8'  feeling.    I got the 70-200 f/2.8 II IS and use it a lot.    Never had ...
