For some reason the text was not saved on the first post. Going in I will say I take extremely good care of my stuff. When I first got the 60D and the older 70-300 back in 2011 the images were very good. As as time went on by 2015 the images degraded badly. I reached out to the forums without any success. I stopped taking photos and gave up on the hobby. Later on I purchased the 80D with the newer 70-300 and tried swapping the pieces around with the 60D and the 80D with the newer lens were...

I have my Metz 45 CT-5 with original rechargeable NiCad battery Pack for years. It is an oldie unit but great without problems. I do not use this flash any more until I get my new Canon 80D (without PC connection). So, I bought a special cable (CM-1), Quantum Turbo SC and Neewer PT-16GY Transmitter/Receiver to make it work with my Canon 80D. But, when I use the rechargeable NiCad battery Pack to power Metz, the MDS works & the compact data display (Aperture, Distance and ASA) if the dial is...

Hi there. I am looking for suggestions on a camera + lens. Overwhelmed by the number of considerations and in need of some guidance as I have very minimal experience with photography. This camera will be used for photographing floral arrangements for a florists website.Budget for the camera + lens is around $1500 - $2000. A few recommendations that have been given to me so far are Canon EOS 80D or the Cannon EOS RP. I appreciate any advice in making this purchase, things to look for, things...

Do you have any similar experiences? Am I doing something wrong? I am new to the R5. The Kenko Teleplus HD C-AF 2X DGX worked with the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM on the EOS 80D, but I am having difficulty getting it to work with on the R5. It seems to work if I turn off the image stabilization switch on the lens. The Kenko has soft image quality, so maybe I should stop trying to use it? The Kenko Teleplus HD C-AF 2X DGX works fine with th EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM on the R5 but...

Soo I was wondering which is better the canon 80d or the sl3...I cant afford a 90d and like the bigger body style of the 80d over the sl3 but the sl3 appears better on paper and is newer. I was wondering if anyone here could lead me in the right direction.

I have asked every which way I could, "why does my camera (80D, 70-300 II) take such crappy images of birds". Anything over 50 feet away is garbage, it's the same problem I had with the 60D and the older 70-300. Many people had great suggestions, the best was to get a longer and better lens. The problem with that is, I already spent $2500.00 for this set up thinking it would work and it does not and will not ever work. It's not me or my level of experience, I have finally come to realize it's...

No matter what I do, the last 500 photos I have taken, In fact 90% of all the photos I have taken, are unusable due to very soft, blurry looking images.  If I am farther than 25-50 feet, forget it. Even when the focus point is right on, no improvement.  Granted, the subject never fills the whole frame, but I do see things that are in focus near the subject. Here is a perfect example of a image (full size) that should be perfect: and yet the bird is out of focus or soft: I know I have asked...

Apologies, I'm just getting started in the Sigma world with an SD14. The manual mentions getting a diopter eyepiece if the built in adjustment isn't enough. Given that I use a -3 on my Canon 80d and should probably find a -4, I'm assuming I'll need a relatively similar range for the SD14 as well. But I can't find them? There's probably something obvious I'm missing; I see posts about some Olympus eyecups being compatible?

Is it time to just throw in the towel? Been doing this a long time but looking back, ever since autofocus and digital started, the results keep getting worse, HUH?  No matter what I do and believe me, I have done and tried everything to make this gear work, more than I care to remember. The results are not and never have been what I expect them to be. Using a like new Canon 80D, Canon 70-300mm II (always at 300). The results are so poor that the keeper rate is zero to nothing, wait zero is...

canon 80D, canon 70-300 II (at 300). I realize they are noisy but I needed the f-stop for depth and shutter to freeze (at least on the BIF). Focus point is right on target. These are the best out of 100, actual size raw converted to jpg without any noise reduction etc.
