Hi, I currently own the 600d and have had had it for 5 years now. I am passionate about wildlife but earn some bits from event / wildlife photography. So would need it for both. Waited for the 6D Mark ii for eons. Now my question is, should I invest in the 6D Mk ii or you suggest I take some other route. I currently own an 18-135 kit, 24mm pan cake, 50 mm 1.8, and a sigma 150-600 contemporary. Thank you.

Hello, I currently use a Canon Rebel t3i. I own two kit lenses that came with the camera along with a Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 and a Canon 50mm f/1.4. I prefer my nifty fifty over the Tamron as it doesn't seem to be as sharp. Anyway, I'm looking to upgrade. I originally considered an upgrade to the Canon 6D as it's not as expensive as the 5DMK3. Some have suggested just keeping my t3i and getting myself a better lens. Not sure what I should do. There's a considerable difference between my t3i and...

Hi, I have a Canon 600D and recently purchased a Canon 100mm L lens. Next week I will be going to Borneo and to several rainforests and wanted to use it for some macro photography. I'm quite new to all this; I have read quite a few conflicting opinions as to whether a ring light is required? I will be mainly shooting on land and in daylight (but might try some night time photography - of course cannot if I don't have a flash!). Firstly, is a flash required and if so, would you recommend the...

Hi. I'm looking to upgrade from my current camera to either a Sony A7S or A7ii. I'll be doing both (semi) professional photography and a lot of video work. The A7ii looks like it takes fantastic video, but I know the A7S has it beat. What's keeping me from the A7S is that it takes lower resolution photos, and I'm not sure I'm ok with that trade-off. Here's what I think will help decide though: I'm upgrading from a Canon 600D. Either one of these cameras is going to be a big upgrade. So I...

A while back I bought a cheap Altura flash (AP-UNV-1 - highly rated on Amazon) mainly to use as a slave.  In practice, I have found it almost useless for that purpose.  It simply will not fire unless the camera's flash is pointing directly at the sensor.  I've used every setting possible, on both a Canon T3i and Sony a6000.  I used to use slaves back in the film days that were very reliable.  Is this typical, is it defective, or am I doing something wrong?

My T3i is now telling me my sd card is write-protected.  I've read all about this online and tried all the tricks (pushing the card in and out quickly a bunch of times, compressed air, manually actuating the write-protection switch with a toothpick, etc).  Can't seem to get it to work.  The card is fine; tested in another camera. This started after I had a hard time getting a card into my camera.  It wasn't sliding in easily so I removed it to find that part of the card lock mechanism was...

Hello, recently I have been thinking about upgrading my lenses for my indoor video shooting. I almost all the time use Canon EF 50mm in my studio (green screen etc.). But the problem comes when I shoot in other indoor environments with limited light and space.  I shoot with Canon 600D and I also have Canon EF 18-135mm. But I will need some wider angle lens that is relatively bright and sharp. Main use should be in real estate environments video filming, where I am not always sure about the...

I bought a used Canon EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 for my Rebel T3i.  https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/products/details/lenses/ef/standard-zoom/ef-s-17-55mm-f-2-8-is-usm It was listed as very good condition for $450 vs $800 new It arrived with a scratch on the perimeter of the lens and I was pretty disappointed. I did contact the seller who agreed to take another $100 off which is why I am even considering keeping it My question is am I crazy to consider keeping it? Is it possible...

Hello all, I've run into an issue with my Canon Rebel T3i where there are line patterns forming on specific textures and patterns in my videos. The problem seems to occur when the camera is completely focused on a pattern, such as this blazer: Note that the blazer is a solid color with no pattern, yet the camera inserts the pattern you see here. I've tried switching lenses and the problem remains, so it must be the camera? I've also tried deinterlacing, with no luck. Anyone have any...

Hi, Next month, I will be going to Borneo (I'm super excited!) and I will be bringing my 50mm prime and 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS with my 600D. But I realise to make the 'most' of this trip, it is probably the time for me to invest in a macro and a telephoto lens. I have looked around a lot and the huge amounts of information on the internet / forums is just a little too overwhelming for me! I currently am thinking: Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM or Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS II USM...
