I run a food tour company and we do lots of food shots, naturally, as well as some video and some standard tourism things, like inside and outside of temples here in Thailand. The long and the short of it is our old camera has seen better days and we want to replace it. Many have suggested mirrorless and the thing which is important for us is the ability to shoot in low light, as many food shots are indoors and even the lume cubes cannot remove all shadows etc I have shortlisted 3 choices and...

Have the 16/2,8 for my R6 and haven’t had too much chance to use it yet but we’re planning  to travel in the fall. For landscape and maybe Astrophotography nightscapes, what would each level of price up get me, ie to 14-35 to 15-35. I realize wider aperture & zoom, but what else? How much IQ boost etc?

Good morning. I'm selling my Leica M9 and 50 lens to buy an AF camera. IQ is everything, I love the Fuji colours and images from the 100s are amazing but I'm wondering if it's too much as a take everywhere camera with 50 equivalent lens. Maybe I should be more realistic and look at a Canon R6 or 5. I'm not a professional photographer but it's my passion and I'd like to take some courses to improve my skill, people and street are my interest. Thanks in advance for any advice.

My X Pro 2 hasn’t been touched since I got my R6. My first impulse was to hold onto it. However, I could turn it into a lens for the R6. I’m really kinda torn. so your anecdotal answers to this personal question? *I’d keep my X pro 1 and most of my glass for the X mount for sentimental reasons.

Hello Forum, Longtime forum reader person here. I've learned lots of good info here. Thank you! I'm going to ask one of the most dumb basic questions (apologies): So...I have an EOS R and an EOS 5DS. Since I bought the EOS R, my wife and I did a big life move thing from UK to Costa Rica. The only relevance for this post, is that, for whatever reasons, I been taking less and less pics the last 3 years. Certainly the EOS R has not been camera that I've enjoyed picking up and using......as...

After having the common setup of having face tracking &regular af set to the two bbf buttons, last night I returned to having half press shutter for regular and the DOF preview button on the front to face tracking. Did this so I could use joystick to switch between faces. Any drawbacks to this arrangement?

Now that I've upgraded to my R6 and solved all my issues from the RP (crippled silent shutter mode, better economics, FPS, battery, etc) I'm finally able to spend money just on lenses without regret. I'm very happy with my 24-240 for most shots, but need something better for portrait work. I'm currently using my 35mm and find it decent, but not exactly what I want as I'm a bit too close to the subjects, and if I fill the frame the edges get a little stretched. It's not the most flattering. I...

My daughter has an R6 and I got to play around with it last evening for a short time. She showed me several images on the LCD that were taken of the same subject, in the same light, at the same moment, and at the exact same settings, yet they appear with different exposures.  Frankly, I didn't have an answer for her. I suggested the RAW might all appear identical, but time constraints won't allow that inspection for a bit.  What is my old brain missing on this?  Thanks in advance for your...

Is it possible to switch on crop mode x1.6 with RF lens in 120fps? animal eye af tracking and digital stab works in 120fps? any restrictions for wildlife video 120fps?

I’d like to get a new tripod to replace our really cheap aluminum Su pack from 2004. I like the look of the peak design one but wonder how well it functions (reviews seem to show it as better for Astro than I expected.). I’m open to any brand but don’t want to spend more than $600-$700 and of course less is better as long as it functions. I want the head to be Arca Swiss.
