I own a 7D2 and a 5Ds that I use for shooting (among other things) karate events at the dojo that I attend.It's awful mixed lighting with fluorescent tubes. I shoot at fast shutter speeds (i.e. 1/1000). Previously, I owned a 5D3 and I got terrible color shifting with white balance in the frame!With the 7D2 and the 5Ds, Canon implemented a flicker reduction setting that actually works. http://www.the-digital-picture.com/News/News-Post.aspx?News=13866Now the white balance between frames can...

Hey guys, I've been trying to figure out what is best for me to do in regards of start charging for my photography for some time now but I can't wrap my head around it that easy as we are talking about big bucks and what I am after here is to spend my budget the most wisely way I possibly can and not waste it on the urge of just buying something expensive as I know this is not how it's done. In my case, I own a Canon 600D with a 50mm and 10-22mm for the past 5 years now. I've been shooting...

5DS R has the same focusing system. Only 1 fps lower than 5D mk iii. Is their any reason to choose 5D mk iii over 5DS R.  Even for wildlife 5DS R seems to be good option for its great resolution. Even the noise performance is good in reviews.

I've not been shooting soccer for a few years, actually not shooting much at all.  My daughter, now 16, asked if we'd take some shots at her games this weekend. So, we unpacked and charged the camera, brought the trusty 100-200 2.8 zoom with the 1.4 adaptor.  Of course we brought the trusty monopod. Thats about what went right...lol. Guess I'd forgotten the correct autofocus settings, including which focal points to activate, which mode to use, whether we should use al focus or al...

I've never done this before. So looking for expiriance. Did those who bought a kit lens - say with the 5D3 - and sold the lens "as new" think it was worth the fuss instead of just buying the camera body?

Hi folks, I just lost the top cap of the mode dial of my 5DIII (the rounded plate containing the P, Tv, Av, M, etc. labels). No big deal, but it's slightly annoying when switching between modes, and more importantly it's possible entry point for dust and water. I contacted the authorized Canon repair shop. The cap is available as standalone spare part but it costs whooping 50 EUR (!!!). I simply find it bizarre to pay such an amount for a plain piece of metal (plastic?). Can anybody suggest...

Hi guys, I am posting this in open talk because I don't think this is a beginner question, so I hope it's allowed to post my question here, otherwise please move it to the right subforum. In 2 weeks I'll be shooting a electronic music festival for the first time. I have a decent amount of photography experience, but I’ve never done festivals or DJ’s before. I own a 550D with some average lenses. So I decided to hire a good camera (Canon 5D Mark III) and some lenses. I could use some advice....

I have the Canon EOS 5D Mark 111, just purchased with two lenses - at the moment though the only lense that has been delivered is the 100MM, waiting for the standard lense to be sent separately. I am a complete novice with this type of camera, my previous camera was the Panasonic Lumix FZ38. It was fine for me for about 5 years but then I yearned for something better, so the deed was done. I have charged up the battery, set the date and time, fitted the 100MM lens, but I have a thought that...

Here is an interesting situation We have two 5D3 that we use in our studio. Love them. Tried to use one for night photography using a Saetchi corded release and their timer. Worked great in one camera, didn't work at all in the other. Tried again, reset all setting in both camera bodies and releases. Tried with same lens, Canon 17-40. Agaon, worked great in one camera, nothing in the other. No bent pins or dirt... Both bodies have the latest firmware. Ideas? Thanks, --Nick

I set my 5D Mk3 camera to shoot exposure bracketing( 0, +2, -2) then take the shots. No problem. Then I attached my canon 430EX speedlite to do the same bracketed shooting sequence with fill flash. When I turn on the speedlite it cancels the exposure bracketing on the camera. No explanation offered in the 5D Mk 3 manual or Speedlite manual. Any suggestions or solutions? Thanks.
