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...

Hi, I have recently stared photography and am using a 450d after much deliberation. My main gripe is not having enough zoom with the standard lens. Rather than carrying around multiple lenses I am looking to get a second hand 'all purpose' lens and have decided on sigma as these seem to be available at a good price. Here comes the confusion, with so many letters in the names I'm not sure what to go for, could anybody help advise which of these seems best, the 28-300 seems better value to me...

Hello.Any idea why my Canon DPP 3.14.15.0 (windows xp 32bit) that worked fine for years from older version to 3.14.15.0 stopped suddenly to have available the "Lens aberration correction" (grayed out).RAW full of course,EOS 450D/Xsi and 350D and 20D worked until now fine.

I shoot a lot of outdoor portraits with my Canon 450D (Rebel XSi) and Canon 70-200 f4L IS USM and the results are very nice when the focus is right on. But only 20 to 40% of my shots are tack sharp, most of the time when my subject is not moving. The action shots and kids portraits are generally oof by a little bit. I am convinced that my techique is good because I never shoot with the 9 focus points on auto, I'm always selecting one of the spots. I've also read that you could calibrate your...

Hi, I'm upgrading my 450D to a 6D and need some advice in relation to lenses. I'm no means anywhere near a 'pro' but am a fair enthusiast. I'm looking at purchasing the 6D with the Canon 24-105 L lens and then purchasing the Tamon 24-70 2.8. I love taking pics primarily of people (my family and kids) and want it mainly for portraits and holiday/travel snaps. I guess my question is should I purchase both of these lenses (24-105 as general purpose for holidays and days out etc, and 24-70 2.8...
