What is this red dot next to the viewfinder and live view button on the Canon EOS Rebel T6 (1300D)? A red dot is a common symbol for the record function, and as on other EOS bodies that button serves the dual purpose of starting Live View mode and starting and stopping movie recording. The icon on the button itself is the Live View icon, and I think the ...

With some image stabiliser lenses this is normal. Just like when you hold the trigger half pressed, the IS keeps running. If the IS motors are audible, the noise will come from the lens continuously.

Focal lengths I prefer using lenses in the Normal range of 35-50mm (35mm film equivalent) for newborn sessions as I shoot most of them on site and often in cramped settings. I queried the past year of newborn shoots and had the following distribution of lenses to images on a full frame camera: It's worth noting that for portraits many people will stay ...

The whole point of Tv mode is that you don't adjust the aperture; the camera meters the scene and calculates the aperture based on the selected shutter speed and ISO setting. If you want to adjust the aperture, use Av or M mode. You might also need a tripod if your shutter speed is consequently too slow to hand-hold. As to the "milky water", I think what ...

The Canon Err 99 is essentially their version of the Blue Screen of Death and simply rebooting may not fix it, but simply cleaning the contacts and rebooting is pretty much all you can do. It's their "unknown cause" error. To quote from the Canon Europe website description of the 99 error code: This is a general error that can occur because of several ...

I would start by using a different memory card.

The diagonal of the 70D 22.5x15mm sensor is 27.04mm. The diagonal of the 700D 22.3x14.9mm sensor is 26.82mm. That's a difference of less than 1%. The smallest APS-C sensor Canon has released is 22.2x14.7mm (EOS 1100D/Rebel T3). The largest is 22.7x15.1mm. This sensor first appeared in the 10D which was introduced before the EF-S lens system. EF-S lenses ...

Canon will almost certainly always have a version of Digital Photo Professional to include with their cameras. Apple may not always support Aperture. (Yeah, I know. Hindsight's always 20/20)

If you buy a $1,200 lens expecting it to instantly improve your photographs by a factor of six over your $200 kit lens you're going to be severely disappointed every time. It is the photographer that takes pictures, not lenses. A better lens will only allow a photographer to take a better picture if the photographer's experience and skill level can take ...

You want the option with more strobes. For portraiture you can get away with one strobe. Maybe with a reflector for fill. But you are limited in what you can do with such a setup. If you want a white background for example, things can get complicated with no dedicated light for that. You could get a cheap speedlight for such occasions, but if mixing systems ...

The SX40 uses a rechargeable built-in date/time battery. They are supposed to keep working for about 7 years, but it appears yours has died a little early. It is not user replaceable. You will need to continue setting the date each time you remove the main battery, or you could have Canon replace the date/time battery. Canon SX40 User Manual

Both are good cameras and both brands have good image quality and lenses. Also i would really really suggest going to flickr and using their camera finder. It allows you to find images taken with specific cameras ( Camera Finder ). If you saw better image quality from a canon it could have been a difference in the lense. Also you can use this to find which ...

The 70D is the previous model in Canon's "prosumer" line. The current model is the 80D. The current prices on Amazon for a new 70D and 80D with 18-135mm lens are only about $150 apart ($1200 vs. $1350). If that difference isn't a big problem, I'd opt for the newer 80D -- the extra money is a good investment in a camera with somewhat better features and (more ...

For the price it's probably not worth getting fixed. They would probably replace the usb port. Which if your lucky they'll only charge 50 or 60 bucks. Then they'll check the screen and you'll be looking at more towards the 100 to 150 dollar range ( on the low end ) if the screen is bad. So at that point your better off with a new one. If you have any ...

it produces a continuous noise Even in direct contact with my ear, I could not hear any such noise on my unit. Visit a camera repair store familiar with Canon (preferably CPS) and let them have a look. not sure if it's coming from the body or the lens, though I suspect it's the lense You can activate LiveView without a lens attached if you have ...

None. 200 mm is not enough for wildlife. Get the 100-400. If you insist on 70-200, the IS mk II is the best. The f/4 version is much lighter, cheaper and optically also very good, but wild animals are often best photographed around dusk and dawn and in otherwise bad light. So the 1 stop loss may cost you on sharpness and shadow detail. Yes, the 100-400 is ...

The occasion for this purchase is a trip I'll soon take to shoot wildlife... Unless you plan on shooting exactly the same wildlife in exactly the same way when you get back home, I'd actually say that renting a Great White L for the trip makes more sense than purchasing one. What you shoot at home and what you shoot on vacation can differ drastically. ...

I can guess at two things that might be causing you to see less IQ with the new lens. 1) The widest aperture on your kit lens was 3.5, and you are not quite used to shooting at 2.8. The wider 2.8 aperture will definitely give you a "softer" look with the narrower depth of field. 2) The kit lens had IS and the new 24-70 MkII does not. Without seeing some ...

No, you can't. To quote from v5.0 of The Other YN-622C User Guide II, page 20: The Canon YN-622C is NOT compatible with the Nikon YN-622N. The camera codes are not the same. This actually makes sense when you consider the completely different pin/contact arrangement on the hotshoe and the inevitable differences in signal protocols. The only way I ...

I have used camera info v1.2 writen by Magic_h200. The utility is great to retrieve some info. The more interesting was the shutter count. My utility is based on, with a access to edit owner, artist and copyright text. You can also synchronise the date/time of the canera within the local time on pc. I am Mourad Mkhakh the author of this tool. This is the new ...
