Hi all, I've been looking at improving the overall quality and sharpness of my images. Because of that, earlier this year I invested in a Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8 L IS II, which I am very satisfied with. This lens already gave me a major improvement on quality compared to my previous setup (Canon EOS 60D + Canon EF 28-300 f/3.5-5.6 L IS USM) Now that I am settled with a great lens, I am looking to improve image quality from the camera's side. I have always used cameras with crop sensors (10D >...

A friend has asked me what has happened to this picture taken on a Canon 40D. It has part of the lower grassy area missing and instead has some parts of 2 other pictures covering the missing area. I have had it myself in the past but don't know how to explain what has happened. Any ideas?

I recently bought a Sony RX 10 III instead of my old canon 40d. I don't know if my canon speedlite 580ex II is compatible with my Sony RX10 III?

Hi.  I have just bought a bargain EOS M10 as a second body to my EOS 40D.  I am using the EF-M adaptor so I can use my old lenses with it.  I have not bought a new lens for a long time, so I'm not in touch with the current options. I have a Sigma 18-50 f2.8 (not the newer macro version) that I really liked on the 40D, but the focus (especially low-light) is really poor with the M10 and an adaptor, which is a shame since the size combination is perfect.  I have contacted Sigma, and they say it...

We recently upgraded our 40D to an 80D. I'm in my upper 60's and my origional thought was to lighten the load since I get to carry the equipment. I thought I was going to get us a Sony a6300 but after a couple of hours examining it I just didn't warm up to it. I ended up getting us an 80D which is slightly lighter and smaller than our 40D. My wife takes over half our photos and she's been perfectly happy with our 24-105L. I missed having a longer zoom so I bought a 55-250 IS STM along with...

Planning to buy my first DSLR (used) and I'd had my eyes on the Canon 50mm STM, mostly because it fits my price range, and the sample pictures I've seen so far aren't too bad. More research, however, tells me that the pictures won't look the same on a crop sensor. I mostly plan on taking portraits of my friends and surroundings. I've also planned to get the cheap 24mm as my 2nd lens.TLDR: what are my options regarding picking a lens mainly for portraits on a Canon 40D. I'm on a tight budget,...

I'm going to upgrade my Canon 40d. If I go with an a6300 I'm going to get a prime and a longer reach zoom lens. Which zoom lens should I consider? Image quality is very important.  Going above 300mm isn't that important to me. Thanks for any opinions.

I'm looking to enter the FUJI system from a Canon 40d. Looking ever the possibilities, I'm down to a X-E2s, X-T10 or the X-T1. The E-2s appears to have a slightly better viewfinder than the X-T10 but probably not as good as the X-T1. The viewfinder is important  to me but that is only one of many aspects to consider. The X-E2s is the least expensive and is very similar to the X-T10 other than the body, but it seems to have little following. The X-T1 is a few hundred dollars more than the the...

I am purchasing a 7D MII, and it has 65 focusing points, but with my 40D, which I've had since 2007 and it has only nine focusing points, I found myself always just using the center focus point, whether shooting stills or action.  Shooting birds in flight or sports action, it seems best to focus right on the spot I most want in focus. Am I missing something by not using the multiple points? Apparently, since the number of points keeps increasing with each newer model.
