I've used my 6D for many years even for sport, so I learned to live with a single af point. What I would do was to keep the subject in the center, then use back button focus and take photos, doing eventual cropping in post for composition. I've recently moved to the 5D4, and part of the process for me now goes through the af joystick. I use my thumb to move it around as required before shooting, which gives me the opportunity of getting a better framing and require less cropping. I'm having...

I have a question which is both shocking and scintillating. Prepare to be amazed. Well, not really. But I figured I might get a better response if I throw some hyperbole out there. Ahead of a coming trip, I've decided to (finally) upgrade from my rusty, trusty 5D. It's been a great body and I'm constantly amazed by how great of results I get from a 15 year old camera. I honestly think there is something special about that sensor. But, it's time. I'd like to get something with a newer sensor...

Hey guys, I've been stumped about this for a while now and am looking to the brilliant minds of the DPReview community. I'm trying to find if there's a way to still be able to use my iPhone's cell data while I'm connected to a Canon 6D's wifi. If I'm shooting remotely, I'll fire up the 6D's wifi, run the Camera Connect app and use it to shoot long exposures. I'm unable to browse safari or go on social media while I'm waiting, the only way to do so is to disconnect from my 6D. I'm also afraid...

My local camera shop has deals with a 6D and ether 70-200 L (non IS) for around $1400 or with a Canon 600EX-RT II SPEEDLITE for around $1500. Do you think those are good deals and which one will be better. I would perfectly want to add 70-200, but this one being non IS is concerning for me. I`ve also heard good things about the flash, but never tried this model. Right now i`m on the fence. I have my eye on the Sony A7 III , which is way to expensive in my country to be worth it, so I might...

My lens makes problematic clicking noise when changing aperture. It happens in video shooting mode, using M (manual exposure), and change the aperture from f/3.2 to f/2.8. I recorded a clip to show this issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6XZ000yTn8 I think we have another one hitting same issue: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/60823798 I already returned the lens, and received another brand new one today. Tested, still same issue. Also tried it on 6D and 6DmkII, same issue. Can...

Please bear with me, I am all new to this and near retirement age. I wanted to start photography and will be going to classes so I bought the following used gear (it came as a package) D90 with about 18,000 shuttle count NIKKOR 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 AF-S DX (was told it is a kit lens) NIKKOR 18-55mm DX VR (was told it is a kit lens from another camera) NIKKOR 55-200mm DX VR (was told it is a kit lens from another camera) NIKKOR 50mm 1.8D NIKKOR AF 28-80mm 3.5-5.6D NIKKOR AF 70-300mm 4-5.6G Paid...

Hey everyone! I'm a confused non-pro photographer with low budget ($1000) Here's my current gear. Canon t2i (550D): Im ok with 18mpx, but hate DRange on high ISO levels an those infamous 9 focus points. Ef-s kit 18-135 IS: very slow and soft i think. Sigma Art 24mm and Niffty Fifty II: They do their job on portraits. Love them. I'm looking for better dynamic range, better low light performance (iso 1600 looks like sh#t on t2i), sharpest picture and a possibility to shoot some wedings-social...

I've browsed the forum a few months back planning camera and lens combos for my first safari trip (to Kenya) in September this year. After reading through, I initially thought I had my heart sorted - but I have just borrowed a friend's Canon 500mm f/4L ii, and am being swayed once again after having had so much fun with it even in the city the past week (admittedly partly because of the novelty of having such a massive/expensive lens). I'm looking for some thoughts. I'm a complete amateur...

I use the 24-105L as my standard lens plus an extra 14mm for wide angle. At purchase of my 6D (four years) ago I considered the 17-40 f/4L as standard lens, but the rather poor quality of 17mm at full aperture (does it really deserve the red ring ?) did me decide to use what I have. Now I discovered Sigma has a nice 17-50mm f/2.8 lens which would be an ideal standard zoom lens for my 6d. I'd trade in somewhat less zoom at the tele end for a full stop brighter lens, but .... it is APS-C only...
