I've had the 70-300mm USM for a few years now and I'd like to upgrade it.  There are a couple issues that'd like to solve with my upgrade.   1. The focus speed is pretty slow.  Birds in flight are pretty tough.  And it will hunt in low light or when trying to focus on some thing small.  2. Image quality at 300mm is not as great as it is between 70 - 200 or even 250. At 300 its noticeably soft. 3. The lens creep and wobble when its fully extended bug me.   I don't want to spend a fortune so I...

I have a 50D, been a while but I'm trying to get back into learning to use it. I seem to remember that the EOS Utility was used to transfer the photos, but I'm trying to find it to download, if I could find the CD, it would do no good, no CD drive anymore. Is it obsolete? If so, what's the new way?

Hi Folks,  So a bit of history: First camera was a Canon 30D, then a 50D - got more and better lenses. Then got a Sony A7II, with a Metabones mk IV (T) adapter and a batterygrip. I have a full fleet of canon glass, 24-105 mk I, 70-200 f2.8, 100m macro, Tamron 15-30 f2.8. I like the images coming out of the sony, but on my last hiking trip (14 days) i did not take any of the sony gear and only had my phone, a LG G6.  I was happy with the handling, but not completely happy with the quality of...

Hi all, I am wondering how to create a jpg from the d7200 that looks like the RAW. These examples show the RAW images from the 7Dm2 and D7200 as very similar. Similar enough that there is no reason to choose one over the other based on color. But, the resulting JPGs are very, very different causing a big problem causing us to prefer one over the other. Why can we not(or can we?) convert from RAW to see the same very similar colors? I have a 50D, d7200, 6D and d750. The conversion to JPG to...

Thank you in advance for the help.

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/
