Hi, I've had a Pansonic G5 for a good while now, just with the kit lens and the cheap-ish Pansonic 25mm f/1.7. I've been getting really into photography, and I really think it's time for a body and lens upgrade (I've beaten the devil out of it). My budget is ~$2000, and I'm coming to the hard decision of sticking with Micro 4/3 or going for something like the Canon 6D with the 24-70 f/4. The advantages of full frame seem good but I'm not too sure that image quality is impacted too hard on 4/3...

I shall be testing my equipment next Friday using a square 90cm softbox with the strobe. Time of the photoshoot shall be appx an hour before golden hour and sunset on a sandy beach So my questions are: Should I use the softbox or maybe use the strobe with the diffuser ? If using the softbox do I need to remove the diffuser from the...

Hi. I read this forum a lot, first post... I shoot with a 7d mkii and completely love it. I'm not a pro and can't justify a FF body (the 6D doesn't do it for me at all). I'm increasingly interested in street photography, which usually uses a 35mm. There's a very specific feel I'm looking for, and I really want that 35mm look. Wide, but still normal. My main lens is the Canon 28mm f1.8, lovely for people, but the space is just a little flat. I shot with the Rokinon 16mm f2.0, wonderful but ......

Hi, and sorry if this has been covered before but I'd like some advice if someone else have had the same issue... Recently my one and a half year old 6D packed up and started behaving very oddly! I took it to my local service guy who told me that the PCB (?) board (i.e. not the main one, but the one on the base of the camera) has experienced a corrosion on the connectors. He attributed this to moisture having gotten into the camera - probably via the battery compartment. It'll cost me a...

Hi guys, Do any of you have experience with a screw on fish eye? I am looking for something simple, I do not want to buy a new fisheye lens. I want to know will the fisheye open up the wide angle anymore than the lens that it is put on? For example, if I have a 16-35mm lens will screwing on a fish eye make it a bit wider or am I limited to original lens? If someone has one, which one would you recommend? And how do you feel about the quality of the photos after using it? Here's the reason why...

I currently use a Canon 6D and almost exclusively use the Canon 16-35 f4 L is for my landscape work. I've just stated printing on canvas at up to 72" x 36" and while I'm very happy with the results I am wondering if the resolution of a D800 would be better. The 16-35 is a peach of lens so what would the Nikon equivalent be in terms of quality?

I always use DSS to stack frames for an astrophoto and post process the result (Autosave.tif) with Photoshop. But recently I discovered that Photoshop (CS6 or CC 2.017), called PSD hereafter, is also able to stack CR2 frames. In some cases (e.g. when using a short 85mm tele) the stack from PSD is even better than from DSS. See attached 100% crops of the Crux constellation taken from 26 frames of 30 sec each with the Canon 6d + 85mm f/1.8 squeezed to f/2.5. The center of the full image is...

I put the Sigma 50-100 f/1.8, a lens made for crop sensors, on a 70D, a crop sensor camera and zoom to exactly 85mm to take a pic. I then decide to shoot the same exact shot from the same exact position. Except this time, I use a 6D, a full frame camera with an 85mm prime lens to it and take the picture. Will the 2 images have the same field of view?

Am I the only photographer who finds the process of connecting the 6D to their cell phone an enormous hassle?  I don't need to do it that often, so each time I try to, the process is so frustrating that I end up just saying, "$*^# it!"  The Canon app for the iPhone is no help since it gives instructions for screens that don't appear on my 6D when I try to follow the app. There's got to be an easier way for a photographer to use remote viewing and camera control.  Anybody know what it...

Hi, new 6D owner here. I saw a video on youtube where the camera is in manual mode and the LCD monitor mirrors the LCD top panel. That is, the top wheel changes the shutter speed on the monitor, and the back wheel changes the aperture on the monitor. When I try this, I can only select one function at a time on the monitor (aperture, say), and both wheels change the aperture. I could then select shutter speed, and both wheels would change shutter speed. Does anyone know how to set up the...
