Hi all, Just upgraded from 50D to a 7Dm2. I know its a new fancy camera so I read the manual, and went out to take photos as usual. Got home and a great many photos are not remotely in focus. Some are so bad its hard to tell if its front or rear focus even. I understand the spot focus mode is very sensitive which was a selling point for me. So i know I may have just missed the subject and missed focus. After much testing and more real life shooting though, with 4 lenses, 3 known good AF...

I recently bought an 80d to replace my now defunct 50d. I shot a bunch of shots over several days but after downloading into a hard drive with Bridge I cannot get them to import into Lightroom. I says no preview available and my raw is incompatible? It says "the files are not recognized by raw format support in Lightroom." I  got the camera and my memory cards (Sandisk Extreme) from B and H. Do I have a problem with the camera, the card or Lightroom?  --Tom O'Day

I recently picked up a Canon 50D at an estate sale. The camera functions well but the the view through the viewfinder is blurred and so full of dust/dirt that the auto focus will not lock on subject. I tried blowing any loose particles with a hand blower but the view is still not good. I want to replace the 2 focusing screens in the viewfinder. I know the one lower screen is the EF-A focusing screen but I am unsure what the upper screen with the 9 point focusing points is called. Any help in...

Hi, I'm new here and in photographing in general. I have found the wonderful (and relatively cheap) world of adapted lenses and gathered some of them. A while ago I bought Vivitar Macro Focusing 28-200mm f3.5-5.3 (the information I found on the web says it was made by Kobori). It has Pentax mount, P/K-A R-P/K, and I attached it to my Canon 50D with PK-EOS adapter. The problem is I can't focus it in any distance and however I try to get focused image, not even in macro mode, It's so blurry and...

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...
