Hi All I've just ordered a refurb 5D3 from Canon and am looking to sell my 7D with < 18K actuations. What do you think is a fair asking price? It's only body with the battery grip, both of which I got from Amazon in April of 2011. Here are a couple of pictures of it taken with an iPhone. Thanks!

Hello everybody, I'm seeking advice about the choice of a powerful graphics card for my planned new laptop which I will use for RAW image processing. For last 5 years I've been using a high-end 17" laptop HP EliteBook 8760w built around the then-state-of-the-art 2nd generation Intel i7 quad-core 2760QM CPU. It performed reasonably well and I was pretty much satisfied with it. As it got quite old by now, I am planning a replacement. For several reasons I intend to go on with a large high-end...

Well I am possibly one more refugee arriving at Fuji's door. I shoot landscape, abstract and will likely get into street and portraiture too. I am considering the switch o reduce the weight in my camera bag and I am fed up with Canon's "laggard with a premium price" position in the market  I am interested to hear from other Canon defectors to Fuji upon their experiences. Specifically about; How is Lightroom coping with Fuji X-trans RAW files in comparison to Canon Raw files? - I have read...

I had just set up for an outdoor event with speedlite (580ex ii) for fill light in Av mode when the camera became totally unresponsive. It was showing 1/8000 of a second for the shutter speed and there was nothing I could do to change it. It was taking an image but they were of course underexposed. The iso was already at 100. Tried different apertures, changed the lens, took the flash off, pulled the battery out, tried a different battery, tried different modes to no avail. Actually, it...

I'm going to Machu Picchu in a couple weeks with my wife and kids, and I'm trying to figure out what gear to take. Ideally, I'd like to take 1 body and max 2 lenses to keep weight down. Here are the options I'm considering 1) 5DIII, 17-40 and 70-300 (heaviest, great IQ, wide range)2) 5DIII, 24-105L (easiest, medium weight, great IQ, limited range)3) SL1, 10-18, 55-250 (lightest, good IQ, wide range) What do you think? Here is the gear I own: 5D III17-40L24-105L70-300L SL1EF-S 10-18mmEF-S...

I've been shooting portrait images for several years but I still have troubles with DOF and focusing. On camera's LCD, they look ok and fine but after I transfer to LR5, some of them are out of focus or mis-focused. I have no idea why.  This is how I focus. I just focus on person's eye with mid spot or move the spot to set the composition. First method might be bad especially with 1.4 lenses. However, with second method, I still get mis-focused images a lot. I used 5d mark 3, D750, and other...

Love the 5DIII, to people who have upgraded (I'd use it mainly for photo, some video along with my sony), would the 5DIV benefit me in terms of speed, MP, and AF? I'm tempted to upgrade, but not sure at the moment. --Been doing photography for 20+ years now.

I'm a sports photographer, mostly football with some basketball.  I'm currently using a 5D Mark III but want to get a faster camera for action shots.  I'm hesitant to spend the $5k for a 1DX.  What would you guys recommend as the next best thing to 1DX?  Thanks in advance.

I think I have decided to finally jump into full frame with a 5d mk3. How much longer is it expected to be available now that the mk4 is out? Also is it likely the price will drop even more before it is discontinued or has it already bottomed out? Thanks.
