Hi, Can someone help me understand where I'm going wrong in estimating the size of a RAW file: A 4272 x 2048 (=12Mpix) photo on my Canon 450D produces a 14.9MB RAW file. If I do the following (wrong?!) sum however  4072 x 2048 x 12-bits* per colour channel x 3 (RGB) channels= 438Mbit = 55MByte Why is the calculated size much larger than the actual? Have I made an error? Or RAW compressed in some (presumably, lossless) way? thanks for any help LostPhoton (*I've read the 450D has a 12-bit...

TL;DR Should I get a newer model Canon SLR or should I be switching to mirrorless for a more compact solution, but keeping image quality. I currently own a 450D with 18-55 kit lens, 50 mm portrait and a 55-250 mm. Purchased in 2008/2009. I enjoy photography just as a hobby, and I would classify myself as a holiday / family photographer, although I prefer taking pictures of non-people to my wifes dispair.  I will be the first to admit that I have started to use an iphone 7 plus for the family...

Good day,I always had fun reading the reviews and forums of this site.Recently, I am kinda stuck with my gear. I started with a 450D and currently using a 700D. (3 years)I use either my 50mm f1.8 or Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 as my main lenses.But I found that focusing is slow with my 700D and I can't capture the images I want anymore. :/ So I am planning to switch to 80D (after selling my 700D and other lenses that I don't use,except for the 50mm) and save up for another lens. What do you guys...

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)
