I am getting back into photography after several years away, and am a bit overwhelmed by the myriad of equipment choices available. I consider myself a hobbysist. I used a Nikkormat FT3 35mm SLR as a youth, and first got into digital SLRs with a Nikon D40. My current setup includes a Nikon D7000, Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 VR DX kit zoom, Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6 VR DX kit zoom, and a Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 prime. I gravitate towards landscape photography e.g. Pennsylvania farms, small towns, trees,...

This has probably been asked a million times on this form but I'm curious. If you look through a Canon Rebel with a EF-S 18-55mm lens set to 50mm, would it look the same as looking through a 5D with a EF 50mm on it? I am currently using a Canon Rebel T1i and looking into buying a full frame camera. When I shoot wildlife I am usually shooting at 250mm with a EF-S lens. To get a similar look on a full frame I would have to get a 400mm EF?

I have a Rebel T1i and it wont turn on.  I hadn't used it in a while so I charged the batteries. After charged I put them in and it still didn't work.  I looked at the troubleshooting and it talked about all the battery and card doors being properly closed.  So I checked that out and then the access lamp came on and would't go off.  So I unscrewed the battery grip and screwed it back in and the access lamp didn't come back on, but now the live view shooting light blinks randomly and the...

Howdy, I understand that the cameras can only record 30 minutes of video before stopping and having to be started up again.  I also see that the file sizes can't be over 4 gigs.  So this leads me to two questions: 1) How much space does 30 minutes of 720p/30fps video take up? 2) Does the camera automatically create multiple files if it goes over the 4 gig mark that I can splice together afterward or what happens when the file hits the 4gig mark? Thanks!

Howdy, I have a T1i and want to try using it to record something that will go for about 90 minutes.  I know I can't record that long via a SD card but is there a way that I can connect the camera to a laptop and have it record directly to the hard drive? I know there was some Canon software that worked for things like time lapse photography and stuff like that but I haven't looked into that in years. If anyone knows if this is possible and has any instructions on how I can go about trying it...

So after much review and debating I upgraded recently from my Canon T1i and chose the Panasonic GX85 with the 12-32mm pancake kit lens. First thank you for helping make the decision I asked this forum many questions about upgrading and got lots of help and great responses from the group.   While the technical stuff mainly rules when people compare cameras there are some nice features in this camera that aren't always mentioned that I really find enjoyable.  I will list them below for any...

So my Helios 44-2 just arrived from Ukraine, more specific this one. I have two adapters, one for Canon EF and one for MFT. However, no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to get anything in focus using an Oly E-P3 or a Canon 500D. Here is a video I shot with the 44-2 on the 500D pulling focus from 0.5m to infinity (or the other way around, I can't remember) on f/16. The focus ring does make the lens extend, but still doesn't put anything in focus. What do you think? What else can I check or...
