Hi, I have a Canon 200D with 18-55mm and 55-250mm lens. I am considering buying a tripod that fits in the cabin bag (going for Europe travel) and also can suport the wheight of my camera with my 55-250mm at his maximum... I have my eyes locked on Manfrotto compact action... Do you guys have any other suggestions or it is a good choice considering i am a "newbie" in photography...i am not thinking to spend a lot of money. Thanks :P

Hi, i have an EOS M100, and i recently got really hyped about wanting to shoot wildlife. To be honest, the most important factor is price.(this lens is about 210-230$ if i saw correctly) I would love to buy a bigger mm lens, but sadly (as far as i know) i would need like 400, or 600mm to shoot wildlife properly aaand that is not exactly the budget i have. So i found the mentioned lens, and it seemed like a decent one to begin practising with. I would probably take it to the Zoo at first, then...

Hello there, I have been reading way to many threads and comments and I would like to finally pull the trigger but I'm honestly not sure in a few points and I'm hoping to get some of my answers here. This will be my first tripod as I'm starting with photography as I saved some money to get a proper gear. I have Canon 80D with 18-55 IS STM and 55-250 IS STM to start with. Wide lens is in consideration as I would like to photograph mainly landscapes. And a decent zoom (and probably a bit...

In this thread, I debated options for puffins and other pictures in Iceland: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4398420 I was all set to go with renting the FE 70-300mm, but looking up the size and the weight of the lens put me off!  I try and keep my kit very small while traveling, as the smaller it is the more likely you are to leave the hotel with it.  So I've ordered the MC-11 and 55-250 STM lens combo (the former "on sale" for $150 from Amazon and the latter refurbished from Amazon...

I use Canon EOS 77d with 55-250 IS STM f4-5.6 lens. I take photos in basketball events and have focusing issues. For instance, I took these photos AI SERVO mode, f4 1/500 3200 ISO, and as you can see the camera lose its focus frame by frame. I don't know whether because of lens or body. I don't shake or move my camera as soon as possible. But I usually face with that problem almost 1/3 of my photos. Any idea what could be the reason behind it? Settings, lens, body etc. Thanks

Well, I hike with this lens routinely and use it A LOT, so I'm not surprised, but it finally happened: The sharp white speck above and to the left of the glob of flares, is a big dust particle in my trusty lens. I've been inside several lenses before including my 55-250 IS MkI when I had it, all without incident, so I'm sure I'll be fine doing this one, but I like to watch a video first and I don't see any videos on taking this one apart. Same as the old ones, or do I need to know anything?

Hi, I'm concerned about the sharpness of my lens. Can you guys help me see if there's anything wrong with it? Lens: Canon EF-S 55-250mmBody: Canon Rebel T6i I use autofocus on the center point, and I do believe that I use settings that are generally supposed to come out with sharp photos, such as an appropriate aperture + 1/FL, etc. I'm still within the return period, and am wondering where the problem lies: lens, body, or perhaps it's just operator error? Or perhaps all of these images are...

Hi, I just bought a new Canon 55-250mm IS STM lens and everything is working fine except that when I am in video mode and I am zooming, the lens makes a rattling/clicling/motor-like noise that is picked up by the on-board mic when shooting a video in a quiet environment.The weird thing is that this noise is not there in picture mode when zooming, only when shooting a video and zooming together.It is NOT the IS or AF noise since I also hear this one (but it is really subtle) and when I turn IS...

Hi all, how does this compare to the 55-250 IS STM? I am not interested in weight, but is it worth the money to upgrade to an extra 50mm in focal length when used on a SL2.

Hi guys. I have been a frequent visitor of DPREVIEW but this is my first post on behalf of my younger sister. She bought CANON EOS M3 without much research. Then, when she wanted to try out a telephoto lens, she bought the following: K&F Concept Lens Mount adapter: EOS EF to Canon EOS M EF-M  EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM The thing is, she could not get the auto-focus function to work. Also, she cannot take any pictures with the mounted lens on. I managed to help update the camera's firmware...
