so ive been looking into gitzo model because i want to invest one now that can last me forever instead of going for a cheap one over and over.  I plan to do a lot of video and ill like the tripod to turn for some good shots ( i assume the ball head does this?). also ill be taking some still images for my instagram page which would mainly be of portrait shots or street photography/nature. I do plan to use all kind of lenses (50-70 f2.8, 70-120 zoom lens, etc) What model would be the best...

Hi there, I just opened my menu and noticed the AF Tab and the last two tabs have disappeared. I've had this camera for a couple of years and have never encountered this. Does anyone know if I could have pushed something to make tabs disappear? And/ or any ideas to remedy the situation would be so appreciated.

I moved to full frame (Canon 5D3) 5 years ago and was very pleased with the results compared to APS-C.  I have two photography styles, on one hand I do travel photography and on the other hand I shoot my kids. I've recently come into some money and wanted to treat myself.  I'm looking at either Sony's A7RIII, or the Fuji GFX 50S.  The Sony looks like it will excel at everything and I will probably get more "keepers" from it, but I'm drawn to the outstanding images from the Fuji. I love the...

Hello all, I am more than happy with my recently bought Canon 85 1.2 L USM. It works very well with my Canon 6D center focus point. It usually misses focus, however, with all other focus points (which are not cross-type). Has anyone tried this lens with the 6D mark II? Any comments regarding the usability of 85 1.2 with 5d Mark III vs 6D would be more than welcome, too! Thanks a lot!

I may be going mad but on my 5DIV I am sure I had the exposure meter vertically set in the viewfinder. It is that way in my 7DII and 1DXII but for some reason it is now appearing at the bottom like the old 5DIII. Is this an option that I have mistakenly unset or is it something that you can't do in the 5DIV and I have just got myself confused with the different cameras I have. If you can set it and anyone knows I have been through the menus and googled it but can't find the setting if it...

I'm using Fuji x-Pro2 which is said to have PDAF, I also checked my friend's E-M1 ii which also has PDAF, however none of these two mirrorless cameras focus faster than my father's 5D iii, which is a few years older than any of the mirroless. So my question is: 1. Are PDAF on different cameras all the same (not considering other factors like processor speed, etc)? 2. Given the fact that different cameras with PDAF focuses differently, what're the other factors that affect AF speed of...

Hello all. I am desperate for help here, but please be patient with this semi- computer and semi-camera savvy amateur photographer. I have a less than year old 5d mark iii. I have a Sandisk 64GB Extreme Pro CF card and a Sandisk 64GB Extreme Pro SDXC card mounted in it. I format both cards before starting to use them, and every time I remove the cards and transfer the images to my computer. I shoot in RAW and jPEG. That said...what happened yesterday has me perplexed and a little...

Hi guys So i used to shoot a lot of pics and occasional video, but ive become rusty, and so ive pulled out my trusty 550d to try and upskill a bit. I've been trying to shoot with my 550D and shoulder spider rig and it's just not fit for purpose for me. My key complaint about the 550d video is the truly horrifying aliasing and compression artifacts all over the video. I mean the image stabilization being non existent is not my favourite either, and focusing on the fly ruins a shot. Now, in an...

OK, after my summer holiday I decided it was time for a camera upgrade. So I said I will wait a bit to see what other new camera are going to be available this fall, because the 6D was a big disapoinment. At my local store here in Canada the 5D mark IV is 4300$ CA, the Nikon D850 is also 4300$, the Nikon D810 is 3400$, and the brand new Sony a7R III is 3999$. Now I’m totally lost in choises. Guys please tell me one single good reason I should pay 300$ more for a Canon 5D IV to ramain a Canon...

Hello everybody, I am currently shooting with the 5Diii and 85L, 135L and 70-200L.  I have been shooting with Canon for the past 10 years starting from the original 5D and have never had to send in for calibration or played with the microfocus adjustment.  However, I recently started shooting with the Sony A7R2 and I do notice the pictures in portraits being sharper, but the colors are not quite what I am getting from Canon.  Part could be the AA filter or lack of, but would sending to CPS...
