Hi everyone, I've had my 500D for many years now and it is a great bit of kit. I've recently been taking more night/long exposure shots and have noticed a large increase in the number of stuck or hot pixels that appear as white, red or blue dots on my shots which are very noticeable on dark backgrounds. I tried a setting recommended by another user in these forums to switch on 'Long exposure noise reduction' under the 'Custom Functions' menu setting. This does appear to remove or fix the...

I started birdfotography with a Canon 70D + Canon 400 F 5.6, and now i use the Canon 7D mark ii + Canon 100-400 II  F 4.5-5.6. With this combo i like the stabilizer e the low weight, but sometimes i feel its that 400mm it´s a little short. Also, with low light the ISO has too much grain.  I  dont like the Canon 1.4x III. The image quality is bad. So  i'm prepared to upgrade the gear. IS it better to change to a combo like NIKON D 500 + 200-500 F/5.6 VR or uprade the lens to a Canon 500 F/4?

Hi All, I'm a Canon EOS user that has switched to the Panasonic "Dark-Side". I wanted a travel camera without interchangeable lenses and the FZ2000/2500 looked to fit the bill. However, I've not been blown away by my test results so far and I'm just wondering if I've expected too much. Should the Panasonic produce comparable results to say a Canon 500D or 60D with basic kit lenses? Or, is it more comparable to the results of the SX60/70? I was hoping the 1 inch sensor would make it a match...

I'm planning to travel for 4-5 months and would like to take some close-up shots if I find some nice flowers, insects or combination of the two. Past few day's I first thought about MCEX-16, but then I thought that adding that tube will be to much effort.. So browsing the web I stumbled upon the Canon 250D and 500D (where 500D suppose to be for the longer ranges). And the Raynox DCR-150 and 250. Digging deeper I found myself lost in all sorts of complex discussions about magnification and...

When I had a 500D I always used a custom user def of standard with a sharpness of 5 which worked fine as I mainly shot landscape.  I've been using a 70D for the past 4 years doing a combination of landscape and wildlife photography using the same sharpness setting and I'm now wondering is it set too high for wildlife?  I mostly use out of camera JPEGs and only edit RAW where necessary (I don't want to have to edit sharpness in every photo) - 2 examples are attached (both taken with a Sigma...

The card slot door of my T1i is loose and won't make contact to make the camera operable. The plastic housing for one of the screws on the inside of the door broke about a year ago, and the screw has been missing. I attempted to replace the screw, but it only exacerbated the problem. Whereas I had been able to keep the door closed and use the camera, now I'm unable to keep it closed without holding it closed with my hand. It's not possible for me to shoot that way. What are my options? The...

Hi I'm an amateur photographer, shooting mainly landscapes,etc., but also looking to increase my portrait portfolio. I don't use any elaborate equipment to shoot with other than my Canon Rebel T1i body and Canon 18-200mm lens. I have shot a few weddings, as well as family photo sessions. My photos do not look as "professional" as others' doing the same thing, in that the quality just looks so different.  I'm asking for advice about maybe what mode I should be shooting in for portraits...

i have a rather dated 500d and an all round sigma 18-255mm. I have used this combo for years to learn how to take different types of pics. Although I am looking at FF mirroless from Sony as my next camera, I still intend on keeping this baby. However, I want to buy a fairly cheap 2.8 less than 18mm wide-angle glass. Anyone have recommendations? I am getting frustrated with the lack of width on my current all-rounder lens, but want something else for to get that extra reach, and be able to get...

Hi all, I'm a beginner amateur photographer. I currently own a Canon 500D with 18-55mm IS II kit and a Canon 50mm 1.8 STM. I continously practise with these on hiking and family events, but I am mostly interested in landscape photography. In November 2018 I will visit my sister in New Zealand and we will travel around on the southern island for 3 weeks. As a geologist I will be more interested in landscapes, geological features in various scales. I am planning to bring the 50mm prime and now...

How long have you been using it? Does it seem to be a problem or too heavy for the zooming in and out that it will harm the camera? At what zoom distance do you seem to get the best results between 24-600mm? Do you think the 250D would have been better? Closest and farthest distances from the subjects? Thanks for taking the time to answer Richard
