I have just received my new 5D Mark IV. I have barely had time to take it out of the box, let alone "mess" around with it. Hopefully this weekend that will change. All that being said, does any have any recommendations / experience with learning videos such as these (not recommending this, they were the result of a little looking around and research): https://www.creativelive.com/courses/canon-eos-5d-mark-iv-fast-start-john-greengo https://kelbyone.com/course/lbecker_canon_5dmarkiv/ I bought...

I ordered today the 5d Mark IV. I am coming from 5d Mark II and while my Mark II takes good pics I am looking forward to the new experience. To that end I am now reading about the new lenses, really versions II and III of existing lenses that I own. Some reviewers and readers have said the new versions are designed to get better resolution from the bigger sensors of the new cameras such as my 5d Mark IV and the older versions have just about reached their limits and unable to resolve as well...
I bought a 1DX Mark II at the end of December and only took pictures once with it until this past weekend when I used it to shoot a CrossFit competition. Friday night I fully charged the battery and only got 400 pics before the battery died. Fortunately I had my Canon 5D Mark II with me, so I shifted to that. Saturday night I fully charged both the 1DX & 5D batteries and Sunday morning before leaving, I double checked my gear--the 1DX Mark II battery was down to only 37%, so I charged it...
Hi folks, I'm itching to update my 5D mark II and I've been checking out a7rii. One problem I noticed at the store yesterday was that the post-exposure image in the viewfinder (image review?) lagged for a moment, preventing continuous viewing in the finder. I figure there must be a way to stop this in the menu, but the sales guy at the store (who shoots with a Sony 7s) couldn't figure it out. Can you enlighten me? While I have you, my reluctance to go with the a7rii is the ergonomics. Maybe...
Ahoy-hoy, I previously shot stills/video as an amateur/semi-pro on a 550D but switched to M43 (Oly E-PL5) when I stopped working, mainly for size/weight. However, while it outstrips the 550D for IQ and functionality, the Oly is too fiddly and small. Not only that, I've only got legacy Helios/Canon F glass with MF. The whole thing is a royal pain, despite the pleasing pics it produces. I'm considering returning to DSLR for the form factor but, despite using a 17-55 F2.8 USM IS and renting a...
Hello all, I have 5dM2. Recently a black triangle appeared in left corner on all the photos. I tried to take a photo without a lens. and the triangle was still there. photo added. My question is, does someone saw something like this? and what can be the reason for this? Image attached. (taken without the lens) look at the left upper side. when there is a lens, the triangle is black. Thank you for your help. (taken without the lens) look at the left upper side.

I'm shooting with 5D2 from a helicopter in arid country, which means early/late or dusty/hazy, and the low contrast is playing havoc with the AF. I'm employing two strategies, but there's certainly room for improvement, and I would appreciate advice: 1. Setting the camera to AF one shot and wide pattern to try to pick up contrast in the subject. This is producing a lot of missed focus (but better than centre point, which is totally hopeless). And many that are sharp in the focus area, but the...

Hello, I need some advice and opinions. I have been doing my research on cameras since I am looking to upgrade to a full frame. I currently have the 70D but don't like the crop sensor on it. My main uses are for occasional portraits, travel/photo journalism, landscape photography, and video. I am on a budget and can only spend $1000-1500 on a new camera. I am seeing the 5D mkii on ebay for less than $1000 and I am currently looking at a listing of the camera body + 24-105mm F4L for about...
Dear Sir or Madam, I am studying the RAW files of your comparison tool to see if and at what cost I 'd maybe be able to get any decent ISO improvement over my current EOS 5D2. Important to note about the hi ISO performance is also, that a noisy 50MP image can in total contain more information as a clean 12MP image, if the noisy 50 MP image can be downscaled to an even cleaner 12MP file too. Actually. I am not looking for low noise only, but mainly for "high sensor information", what I 'd...
