I own a Canon EOS 70D and I truly love it, however and as my first DSLR, I am struggling with lenses.
I have the following lenses:
1) Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
2) Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
and I am happy about them but I am not ‘super satisfied’. Both almost take servers the same result with a plus for the 18-200mm when it comes to z...
Just came this week!!!!!
Please post your pictures in the medium size and it would be helpful if they were not over processed so that we can see what the lens is actually doing. Consider allowing the viewing of EXIF info on your original and lens tagging it with our standard tags.

I'm going an a southern Africa safari. I'll be in Victoria Falls at the Stanley and Livingstone Private Game Reserve (Zimbabwe), Chobe National Park (Botswana), and Lower Zambezi National Park (Zambia). This is not a "photo" expedition and I'm not a great photographer so I won't be bringing back lots of outstanding photos. But I'm good enough to get a few good photos.
Hi guys, this is a bit of an upgrade question.
I bought a 50mm f/1.8 two years ago, and still use it everyday almost. It stays mounted 75% of the time. Lately I have been wanting to upgrade this lens to the 1.4 counterpart.
I don't like the built quality, nor the loud buzz of the AF motor, and I find it a little slow to focus (compared to my USM lenses).I have looked at...
It is curious for me that new rebel series 750D/760D comes with optical low pass filter (OLPF) on image sensor, whereas other brands out there (DSLR or mirrorles) are decide to remove it from they sensor.
My understanding in absence of OLPF on camera sensor is about advance technology resulting to increase sharpness but prone to more moire. Please correct me if I'm goin...
I just got the new Canon 100-400 L IS USM 11 lens. I want to shoot Bald Eagles coming in for a "catch" of a fish. There are 3 IS settings. I understand the first is for a stationary subject. Could someone explain especially what #3 is for? Today is was using the #2 setting for IS - am wondering with a fast flying eagle, if I should have been using #3.
Thanks in adv...
Having difficulty sourcing 48mm drop in filters or gels to fit the drop in I have for my 500mm lens looking for 6-10 stop ND to take pics of the eclipse coming to the uk later this week - uk sourced only anyone got any ideas other than DIY - tried wex ebay LCE Jessops etc
My 50D has been giving me issues lately. The shutter button sticks and does not always respond when you press it down, the hand grip is falling off, and the shutter occasionally gets stuck. So I finally decided today it was time to say good bye to my old friend and buy a new 7D mark I. I had thought of sending the 50D in to get the shutter button fixed, but who knows when ...
I am using canon 60D and i have 4 lenses for that.
but it is not always possible to carry a camera bag and roam around.
So i am planning to have a pocket size cam also so that i can carry it and take pics on go but with good results.
So i see that canon S series is good..S95, S100, S110 and S120....may be some of them are discontinued by now..
but i want to...
I am going to be travelling extensively in Europe and North America over the next couple of years before my body packs up :(
I have everything I need by way of gear - far more than I do really - but then I am 65 and on an "indulge yourself spree" . . I am saying all this upfront so that we address the question that follows and spare me the wisecracks on how I do not need ...
NY Times photographer Vincent Laforet has some amazing nighttime photos taken above cities. Read the NY Times article but then make sure you look at his Storehouse page. He uses a Canon 1DX and a prototype Canon 5DS with attached gyroscopes.
There will be a solar eclipse in the morning of 20th March 2015 (about 90% in the North of England).
I have ordered some of this solar filter
to put between a step up ring and plain filter to put on my Canon 100-400L and Canon 7D as per an article I saw online.
I will not be looking through the vie...
I have the 7d2 and tamrons 24-70mm 2.8 + canon 50mm 1.4 and Im about to lose my mental health with this AFMA so I really need some advice here!
How did I AFMA?: Body on tripod, 2sec delay, 10 shots per set (first at around 2-3m and then at 5-6m), rotated focus ring in between shots (1st shot front 2nd back and so on...) Target chart on a table ( that's c...
I am just curious what the worst weather condition you have shot in? Also what is the best Canon for weather sealing? I really like Canon and would like to get something that can with stand the elements like the E-3 from Olympus. Any suggestions. The main weather i am going to want to be shooting in is Rain, and Humidity.
I am about to pick up a Canon EOS 6D, and was wondering how weather sealed it is. I have the sealed EF 17-40 with a filter to complete the sealing.
I'm guessing chance is involved, as one camera could go on and on and on in very harsh conditions, and another could fail after a light drizzle.
Thanks a lot in advance
Thinking of upgrading to this lens and wondering how good it is, my current lens is a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 XR Di II VC which i bought due to the great reviews, sad to say i must have got one of the dodgy models as it isn't living up to the reviews, just thought i'd get some more feedback before splashing the cash.
ps, i use a 60D
after my last topic, I decided to give it a go with these walk around lens, so I bought a used Tamron 18-270mm (non PZD)
I have used it for few minutes only, but I have noticed these issues listed below. Don't know if its common for super zooms or maybe its a faulty lens (hope not). I also have Canon 55-250 and have done some comparison with it
This isn't a really popular lens because most people in this range go for the 100-400 but I love it and I was hoping some other people in the group used it.
Camera: Canon EOS 30D
Exposure: 0.003 sec (1/400)
Focal Length: 300 mm
ISO Speed: 100

Landscape photographers - I usually respond to "I want to get better" threads with things like "take classes, use a tripod, study composition".
Here's a fantastic article on composition that should help give you some tips on how to better frame your shots: luminous-landscape.com/better-photographic-composition/ and you'll quickly realize that the improvements you get ...
I have seen recently nice examples of infrared pictures. There are good articles about it, but some questions remain:
1) Can every Canon DSLR (for instance my EOS 450D) be modified? Probably this depends on the sensor and the IR filter they have to remove.
2) If you have a modified camera, do you need an IR filter to block the visible part of the spectrum? The pictur...
