I have a Vivitar Series 1 90mm f/2.5 VMC macro lens, which is a 1:2 magnification lens on its own, externally focusing. (Top notch lens!). I also have a matching extension adapter to reach 1:1 magnification. The adapter has at least one glass element that I can see, either for optical correction of distortion or to maintain f/2.5 aperture size, or both--I don't know. I'm wondering if the lens + its extension adapter would work with a close-up filter like 500D (+2 diopter). Or if I won't be...

Where is the internal clock battery on the T1I?  I need to remove and replace it to see if it will clear my error message.  Can't find it anywhere.  It's referred to on canon's website as "built in secondary battery" but can't find it at all.   THanks in advance for any help

Hi experienced people. Recently I have been finding that my 500d often struggles to focus in AF mode and I have been having to shoot in MF often. This happens with both the EF 18-55mm and the EF 50mm 1.8, although it is worse with the 50mm. It struggles most with low contrast compositions, particularly white/light. As I like to shoot portraits this is particularly annoying as it will often struggle to focus if a face is in front of a white background. This happens in different AF point...

Hello, I want some advice with what camera should I choose. My options  are Nikon D5100+18-55mm or Pentax K-r+18-55mm+50mm f1.7. It is worth giving my 500D for one of these?

I have a Canon Rebel t1i, and it has been working really well.  A few days ago I put my battery into the Canon charger for six-ish hours, and when I took it out and put it back in my camera it still had no charge.  Not sure if this is my battery going bad or if the charger is going bad? Help!

I have a 50mm lens & a 18 - 200mm lens.  I like both & have taken some great pics with them.  The 18-200 has been my travel lens as it can take some panoramics, some close-ups & I like the zoom.  Only thing is it is rather heavy. This spring I shall be going to Yosemite.  Is there another lens I should consider purchasing that would give me some flexibility of the 18-200 & help me take some great pictures?  I do have a Canon T1i.

Hi all Unusually for me I have a reasonable amount of money to spend, and I'm trying to work out the best way of disposing of it When I don't have any I know exactly what I want, but now I have some, I'm torn So, I'm not sure whether to go for a new body (I have a 500D now) I'm looking at the 760D or the 70D (both have pros and cons) Or a new lens (or 2) - 15-85 to replace my walkaround 18-135 (I have 10-20, 70-200 and 120-400) or a macro (60 or 90mm) I can quite happily buy any one of these...
