In a month or two I plan to buy a lens for middle of the focal range for crop sensor. My current inventory: Camera : Using 20D for 6 years, but in a month will swap it to 50D with my sister as she is not using it. Lenses: 50mm 1.8 II 10-18 IS STM 24mm 2.8 STM Pancake 55-250 IS STM (currently in the mail from Japan) Flash: 430EX II + trigger system So, as you can see, I have Ultra wide angle covered, as well as 50mm and above. I like to shoot landscapes, cities, and also some close-ups/macros...

Hello everyone, I'm really glad I found this group, and thank you for everyone's help. I hope this is a great question.... I have a super old mint condition 420EX Canon flash. Since this flash's power output cannot be changed from the flash, does this also mean that even with a set of Pocket Wizards, this is also true ? IF I place the 420EX on a camera like the 50D or 60D, the camera will adjust the flash power output, so I wonder..... can you adjust the power output with older Pocket Wizard...

Hi All, I have a Canon EOS70D and an EOS50D.  I have also got a Yongnuo transmitter YN-E3-RT (and 3 X 600 series flash units).  I want to be able to take a shot with the 70D (with transmitter attached) and have the 50D take a shot remotely at the same time triggered by the transmitter signal. Does anyone know if this is possible and if so, how to do it?  I'm not sure what additional kit / leads I need to get. Thanks

Hey all- I'm looking for a tripod head to replace my current well-used 30 dollar ball head. I have a Canon 50d with a battery grip and a 300mm F4L with a 1.4x teleconverter. Using a ball head has certainly worked, but the feel of the ball head with my setup just doesn't feel right to me. I've looked into gimbal heads, specifically the Opteka GH1. Does anyone have any experience with this head or any two-cents to offer? Thanks- --Davis Kellyhttps://www.flickr.com/photos/154808725@N05/

Hi all- I'm looking to purchase a new lens. I do wildlife photography, shooting a range of birds. I use a crop sensor body- I'm looking at the Canon 300mm and the Sigma or Tamron 150-600mm. I haven't found the 150-600 in my buudget of $550, though, and i am considering the use of a 1.4X teleconverter on a 300mm F4. Will this combo be sharp? I know it's not all about sharpness, but also with a new aperture of 5.6, with the 670mm equivelent produce tack-sharp images (proper shutter speed and...

Hi guys- I'm looking to buy the Canon 50d and the 300mm f4L IS USM. I'd like to step up my wildlife photography game, and I think that this is the right gear for me judging by my skill level and experience. The 70-200mm F4L USM is another option, but I don't know whether or not to go with the 300mm or the 70-200mm. Since the 50d has an APS-C crop factor, the 300mm would be more like a 480mm, which is even better for tight wildlife shots. The 70-200mm might not offer that length, and I most...

Bought the M5 15-45 kit during Easter sale (price for body only is the same).  Already own the 11-22mm, 22mm, ef 50mm 1.8, ef-s 15-85mm and 55-250mm with the original M and 50d. Looking to have the original M as my astro + backup camera, M5 to be the main travel/walkabout camera.  Also planning to buy a 6d or 6d mk2 and sell the 50d for shooting events that the mirorrless can't handle (yes, moving to ff). Any suggestions on which lenses to keep?  Probably obvious that I'm more into landscape...

I've been trying to figure out what to upgrade my 50D to. Ultimately I think want that GH5(for video), but that will be a while before I can afford that, not to mention I don't think I realistically need that much camera at this point. So I was thinking the G85 w/kit lens. But now I saw some videos about the GX8 and am confused. From what I understand the GX8 is great a stills and works for video and the G85 is great for video and works at stills. I'm wanting to get more into video, but not...

Hi,  I have a very old Canon 50D and am planning to replace that with Fuji X-T2.  I have been trying to figure out Fuji's deal calendar, and I thought they would have some deals on X-T2+kit lens and even the other lenses around this time. I know there is one deal going on with the vertical grip, but apart from that there are none as far as I know. Does anyone have a guess about when the next deal would be? I would like to wait to get a good deal if possible, last year I saw there was around...
