Dear Canonisti, I am currently having a hefty love affair with Olympus' mirrorless M10. Nevertheless, I feel that under many circumstances my Canon gear gave me at least as nice color rendition. I mainly shot my 450D, 50D, and last 550D (T2i) in "standard" picture mode. Now I wonder: Will any modern Canon DSLR (or maybe even EOS-M) have more or less the same nice color rendition, or did things change over the years? Actually from time to time I check image galleries, e.g. here at dpreview;...
I currently shoot with a Canon 50D and am thinking about upgrading to the 80D, 6D or the 7D Mark II. Photography is a hobby for me and I shoot mostly my kids (cross country meets, mountain biking, portraits) and landscape. Any thoughts on whether or not upgrading from the 50D will provide me with enough benefit to warrant the cost of a new body, and if so, which DSLR do you all recommend. Thanks.

Hi! I am going to upgrade from 50D to 5D4. How huge jump in image quality will i get? :) (I know what i am getting, just asking for fun) 4k video sucks, yes, but 1080 is perfect or? Atleast if you arent professional or dont care that much about video? What microphone would you recommend for recording birds singing (not too expensive)? Is it good to buy 5D-model right when it is lauched? Or is there any benefit for waiting 0,5-1 year before buying (if there is some serious flaw or something...
I have bought a canon 70D last year and have been using it with the kit 18-135 STM and 50 1.8 STM. I get good stills with the prime lens but with the kit lens so so. I liked 70D for its video autofocus and silent recording. Recently, I bought sigma 17 50 2.8 and am not very happy with it. I want to sell it off and stick to primes for stills and kit lens for videos. To avoid lens changing on field I am thinking to go for a back up camera. And I also wanted to experience a FF camera. Now that...
Hello, today I took a lot of sightseeing photos, mostly snapshots with no artistic intent and I had with me both my new 80D and my older 50D. On reviewing them, i was shocked by the number of completely off focus shots I took with the 80D. As far as I can remember, these are mostly those with people off-center, where I mechanically did a focus lock (half-shutter) on the central af point, then recomposed. I am pretty sure, and exif confirms it, that I had set to one-shot focus, and they're...
Greetings need your expert opinion on taking photo in low light/indoor photography. i'm using Canon 50D, Canon 16-35mm f4 lens for indoor photo and i'm not happy with the results, don't know how to improve. Due to low light indoor, with flash (430II), i was able to get photo with manual setting of ISO 1600/3200, f13, 1/80, partial meter. i'm getting images with lots of noise (understand it is due to high ISO setting), but images are not clear and sharp... i was hoping to get good image...
Hi, I am a novice. I have not had a lot to do with cameras since developing film in a darkroom from an old pentax at high school .. quite a few years ago :) .. my question is I am interested in a Canon eos 50D with a Tamron 18-250mm lens. I have researched and then hit a wall when one site said they were completely incompatible :/ .. I am wanting to take photos of kids and plants/flowers. I would be very thankful of any advice. ps, I am able to purchase for $430 but not sure now if I should...
So, I thought I had a faulty card, as my EOS 50D kept saying 'card not formatted' whenever I tried to use it. Now that card does work, but using one of my cards (pretty sure it's another), I had the same error intermittently. Made me worried when I tried to extract images and it came up 'not formatted'!! Simply taking the card out and putting it back in fixed it. So anyway, what's the likely cause? Camera? Or could it just be that old CF cards are starting to fail?
