So I had issue with my new 6D2 and EF 24-70 f/2.8 (the 1st gen one) .. When shooting video, with digital IS enabled, the video jitters (or I should say, glitches). Hard to describe the feeling, but it looks just like wildly shaking video. Next frame is completely shifted comparing to previous frame. So I am sure the digital IS is to blame. It happens frequently on wide-angle range about 24~50mm, the tele focal range (about 50~70mm) seems fine. Disable digital IS solves the problem. My 6D2...

Morning! Was wondering if You know any professional photojournalists working in the field with mirrorless cameras? My main consideration is the cameras endurance. I switched from Canon 7D + 24-70mm f/2.8 to Fuji X-Pro 2 + 35mm f/2 and I totally love the Fuji. I love the fact it's small, lightweight and You get unnoticed when doing any reportage kind of work. People don't see You as a photojournalist which is more than helpful. I take this little beast everywhere with me while Canon lays at...

I am using 5D2 for almost 4 years with shutter count of 13190. A week ago I got Error 30. (error code 30: "Turn the power switch to <OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery"). I surfed the internet and followed the following instructions: 1st: Remove batteries(both, main and clock battery) and card for quite a time. 2nd Update the firmware: I was already on the latest firmware. However, I updated it again. Issue was solved right away. I took quite a few pictures. single shoots, long...

Hi all, Having bought a Canon 5D MkII almost 8 years ago, I have used it for travel, volunteer jobs, and art, making prints of up to 40x60 in. I specifically bought this camera + 24-70mm f/2.8 MkI for its low-light capabilities. While the 5D has great image quality for stills, taking candid shots leads to dirty looks due to the loud shutter (even in silent mode). It also gets a little heavy around the shoulder, walking around the city, which is why I am reluctant to travel with more lenses...

Hi, I’m shooting a large corporate event for a non-profit at a hotel (high white ceilings). I’m a video person, but I accepted it because it’s for a good cause and to challenge myself. Equipment: 2 Canon 70d 24-70 2.8 70-200 2.8 Canon Speedlite 580EX Do I need a second flash unit? Or can I achieve good quality results with what I have? Any tips are welcome too. I will be shooting solo. Thank you in advance!

Hi there,  I dropped my lens (Canon 24-70 f2.8 mk1) from around 1,8 metres while adjusting my tripod, i think the camera was not secured properly. So far nothing is broken. but the zoom ring is sort of stiff around 24-30mm, and it makes a horrible sound, much like the sound ski pants make while "grinding" together. I am very sure something is not right, but i would like some help as to what it could be, so i can figure out what i will do with the lens. Thanks! Regards, Asger

Here is my problem. I currently own a Rebel XTi, 17-85, 50 1.8 and the 70-200 f4 L and the 580EX II Flash. My question is do I upgrade my Camera to the 6D (or 6D II if it ever gets announced) + the 24-105 f4 or do I just upgrade my Glass and grab like two new L lens for my kit.  I mostly take landscape/city-scape shots and of course all the family functions/birthdays etc. I was thinking of the 24-70 and the 16-35? or do I grab the 24-105 plus the 16-35? I was almost dead set on the body...

Hi, I have a Canon 24-70mm 2.8 with a Canon 70D body. When I zoom all the way out to 24mm, it won't auto focus unless its like a macro shot and I am focusing on something very close. So anything else that is more than 2ft away from the camera, it won't focus on.  If I turn it literally 1mm to the right, it auto focuses just fine... I was wondering why? Is that just the way it is, or is it broken? Any help would be much appreciated!

I have just recently purchased a 7d MKII, I shot a BMX event at the weekend and used a 24-70 2.8  and am now looking at the images on Lightroom and there is a tremendous amount of blurring around the outside of the photo and I am unsure why. The vast majority of my images are like this. I also shot with a 5d MKIII with a 17-40 and the pictures are perfect and pin sharp. Could someone tell me the reason as why this is happening?  Here is some info for the attached picture to show what I...
