Hi, im fairly new to photography, hence the fact that I bought a fairly inexpensive camera. My current lens is a EFS 18-55mm and Im not to happy with the shots Im getting. it maybe with my lack of skill and experience regarding manual mode and stuff but when I try shooting with my cousin's $3000 sony camera, with similar settings (same time and place), it looks so much better lol. I know the huge price difference makes the sony way better but I wanna practice on my current camera. Any...

Hi All! Last year I upgraded my old 450d (XSI) to a 760d. I1m pleased with the new body, but this year i1d like to upgrade my lenses too. I have yet the old kit lenses of the 450d, EF-S-18-55 IS II and EF-S 55-250 IS. I have the EF L 100 f2.8 macro and the EF-S 24 f2.8 STM, and a sigma 8-16mm. I plan to upgrade only the two old kit lenses. in place of the 18-55, i plan to buy the 18-135 nano usm. but for the 55-250 , I can't decide. First I tought the new 70-300 nano usm, but it's more...

My XSi is acting wonky.  It takes photos fine, displays photos on the LED screen fine, but only intermittently displays the settings screen and when it does the top half of the settings info is missing.  Also when I can get the screen to display, when I bring the camera up to my eye that screen is supposed to shut off to avoid blinding the user.  IT REMAINS ON.  Any suggestions?

I have a Canon XSi and recently it started giving issues. I tried with multiple lenses, both in AF and MF modes, but it won't go away. When I try to take a photo by pressing the shutter button nothing would happen. Even after multiple attempts of pressing the shutter button nothing happens. Sometimes this gets fixed if I zoom the lens back and forth. When that doesn't work, changing the mode in the Camera helps. Any thoughts on what I should be looking into to fix this issue? Thanks in advance.

I bought a new EFS-24mm F2.8 STM lens yesterday from BestBuy for my Canon 450D.  Only MF is recognized. AF does not show on the screen.  AF/MF switch on AF.  Shooting mode AF continuous or AI Servo. None of the modes ( A/P/TV/AV) recognizes AF. In P/TV mode screen shows F 0. In AV mode nothing is shown. Did any one had this issue with this lens ( AF not being recognized)

I've been reading about cameras for several weeks to decide on what to replace my Rebel 450D with. My primary reason for purchase/upgrade is to get into deep sky astrophotography. Because of its good SNR, high dynamic range, and full frame capability I've decided to purchase the 6D. Upon a little more searching though, I've seen the most recent rumors of the 6D Mk II pointing at an April announcement which I take to mean a June-ish release assuming it doesn't slip to the right again. The key...

My granddaughter is interested in my old 450d as her first DSLR as I updated to a 700d when the old 18-55 kit lens died. A local 2nd hand store is selling the 28-90 for less than £30 and with 12 months guarantee.  So as an entry level walk-around lens any views, any gotcha's and what should I look out for?  I see there have been several variations of this lens but I can't see through the window which one it is. Plan to buy later today (UK).  Thanks.

Dear Canonisti, I am currently having a hefty love affair with Olympus' mirrorless M10. Nevertheless, I feel that under many circumstances my Canon gear gave me at least as nice color rendition. I mainly shot my 450D, 50D, and last 550D (T2i) in "standard" picture mode. Now I wonder: Will any modern Canon DSLR (or maybe even EOS-M) have more or less the same nice color rendition, or did things change over the years? Actually from time to time I check image galleries, e.g. here at dpreview;...

Hi, This is my first post in dpreview. I have always been reading on the discussions here but I need some suggestion on my first big purchase. I bought my first DSLR in 2009 - Canon Rebel XSi along with 18-55 & 55-250. Things changed for good when I purchased 50mm f1.8 in 2010. I just simply feel in love with it and started taking portraits. I realized then that this is what my focus will be - Portraits and Primes. Whats bad about Rebel XSI is that the Max ISO is 1600 and it become highly...
