Hi all.  I am an amature when it comes to photography, and admittedly am punching above my wight and knowledge, using a canon 6D that was gifted to me.  For the first 6 months I was stunned and impressed by the shots that I was able to take, but something has gone wrong and I have no idea where to even start looking for what the problem might be.  I am using a sigma 30mm 1.4 (and have been using this all along) and now I am having issues with focus and soft blurry photos. I take a lot of...

So we are in the shadow of incoming announcements and people are yelling 6D2 and 5D4 and Im thinking, I can JUST afford a 5D3. Lately in my area, there has been a big sale for cameras and the 6D has dropped from $2k Australian dollars to $1700 and the 5D3 has dropped under $3000 when its normally a $3600 camera. I have been slowly saving for a 5D4 and will be in the market for my first FF DSLR in 2017 around the same time as this post - Call me crazy, but should I just get the 5D3 or 6D now...

During the first week of July I did 3 dates on the Vans Warped Tour and on the second day I noticed there was a random piece of light that were showing up randomly on pictures. It dosent show up in live view, and depending on the incoming light sometimes its not there. Also this is showing up on all my lenses (24-70, 70-200, ect) I tried searching the google to see if this was a sensor problem or not but couldn't find anything. Anyone know what this could be?

Hello my friends :) Since about 15+ years I am in the Canon camp. Currently in use is a 5D2, 6D, some L zooms and fast Sigma primes. I am not planning to give up on those. Many years back, I used to shoot film on my dad's old Contax RTS with a Zeiss 50/1.4 lens. I found it with a bit of practice really easy to nail manually the focus, even outside the micro-prism, just on the screen surface. The focus was clearly visible. Unfortunately this "easy" manual focusing changed completely with...

Hello, I'm sorry to start with yet another question about 80d vs 6d but... here I go. I want to upgrade my 550d (that I need to fix since I kinda broke it...) and I'm looking mainly for IQ and sharpness/focus. I read many threads/reviews about the 80d, 6d and 7d mk II but there's one thing I haven't found that much and is related to the sharpness/focus of an image. I know the 80d is a more versatile camera, but based on the image comparisons I found, the 6d always have the sharpest images...

Fear not, I've already used the Search function xD I currently own a Canon 6D with a decent set of lenses, and a SX50 bridge camera to drop in my backpack for cycling trips, quick hikes etc. etc. What I noticed is that my life would be much, much easier if I could add something "in between" the full frame and the bridge camera. A system that I could carry with me during multi-day trips, offering a useful focal range and general good all around performance. Last year I already owned the old...

Hey all, Long time no post for me. Getting acclimated to my 6D still and wanted to run some questions by you all. I've been reading about how life changing back-button focus is, so I figure I may as well give it a try. I've read so much about it my head feels like it's going to explode. The question(s) I have are. 1. So if I focus, using bbf (press AF-ON once/twice to lock), on a subject in the middle of the frame on my center point, I can then move myself so that the subject is in either 1/3...

The question “How do I convert SNR differences between cameras from db to f/stops?” has been asked and answered all over the internet, but I find no resolution between 3 dB and 6 dB. For example: From the following post (http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/39692269) Conversion of SNR dB figures to stops: Question: Iliah Borg wrote: My conversion is: stops = log[base 2] (10 ^ (dB/10) ) Roughly 6dB is 1 stop in photography. ND 0.3 is 1 stop. Is this the same dB measure? Answer: From what I have...

I really need to add a certain type of gear to my current collection. What I'm looking for is: a) Weatherproof body and lenses. I don't need to go diving, but gear needs to be 100% reliable under rain, random splashes from rivers/sea water and that sort of stuff. b) Portability is a must because this kit needs to fit in a small backpack used for hiking and cycling (100+kms).  c) I need the kit to allow me to shoot "a bit of everything". This means that I don't need it to be the ultimate...
