Because of the 60Da's modification to increase IR sensitivity for astrophotography, if you plan on using the camera for regular visible-light photography, you probably should get an IR cut filter, otherwise you may experience color shifts when the sensor gathers both visible and non-visible light together (magenta cast with synthetic fabrics, and foliage ...

If you're just starting out and asking basic gear questions, you should probably be most concerned with practice time and gaining basic technique and understanding of exposure and post-processing. :D The problem now may be your gear, but your biggest problem is lack of enough experience/knowledge to determine if your problem is the gear (and what gear, ...

Is it wise? Well, probably the wise thing to do is to sell all of your electronics, camera gear included, and live a quiet life of mediation and peace. Or, is it a smart investment? Again, neither of these options is really the best. Better to sell it all and pick up a nice low-overhead index fund. But, photography is an art. Art is not wise (even if it ...

The support for the Canon 7D's RAW files was incorporated in Camera Raw 5.6 and the latest version of Camera Raw supported by Photoshop CS2 is 3.7 so there are no support for the .cr2 files created by the 7D in CS2. Unfortunately there is no way of opening these files in such an old version of Photoshop (unless there's a strange hack that I don't know of) ...

Generally, you should upgrade / add equipment to address specific limitations with your current equipment. There is nothing particularly bad about your current kit, and without knowing what you want to do, it's hard to make specific recommendations. Do you have a good tripod and flash? If not, those will make a much bigger difference than a better camera or ...

I would strongly recommend refraining from buying a different DSLR body if you already have one unless you have a specific reason, such as one of the following: Higher shutter speed Higher ISO options (better low light support) Switching sensor size (i.e. cropped sensor to full frame) Desire a new feature that is unavailable with your current body (like ...

I would suggest Canon Speedlite 320EX. It is relative cheap and matches price class of your camera body. It is also less powerful than 600EX, but in studio it does not matter so much. If you need powerful flash anyway, then Metz offers a wide choice for far less prices than Canon, but be advised that build quality is considerably lower as well.

This is called Photojojo lens mount, and you can find the product on this link.

I have owned the first 16-35 f2,8, the successor 16-35 f2.8 II and the 17-40 f4, and now the 16-35 f4. The new lens is much better in the corners and is really sharp overall. I sold the earlier wide angle zooms and even a 14mm f2.8 prime because the edges were unusable even stopped down. I had to crop frequently to eliminate the smeared parts. I finally ...

Two main possibilities, the AF system in the camera for identifying proper focus may be shot or the AF motor in the lens may be shot. If you have more than one lens, switch lenses and see if you still have a problem. If multiple lenses can't focus, the problem is probably in your camera, possibly the AF sensor is not functioning. If only the one lens ...

This is the difference between CDAF with integrated PDAF hybrid pixels vs full PDAF. When using live view, the camera's imaging sensor is exposed and it tries to focus by using a combination of hunting for focus and checking the image contrast mixed with some hybrid pixels that contain limited phase detect focus capability. Generally speaking, CDAF should ...

Yes, the Canon 430EX II is fully compatible with the Canon EOS 6D and should be able to do all of the functions for which it is designed. If you are having problems using your 430EX II with your EOS 6D, here are a few things you should check: Batteries Be sure the batteries for both the flash and the camera are properly charged. Connection Be sure the ...

Press the "Drive" button next to your camera's top display (between the AF and ISO buttons), and scroll through until you get the same icon as the 2 second timer but without the number 2 next to it. That's the 10 second timer. Here's the icon from the 60D user manual:

ShutterCount for Mac. It is certified to work with the Canon 6D. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/shuttercount/id720123827?mt=12 Dave

It probably isn't as big of a deal to switch as you think. It is fairly common when switching systems to sell off the old system and re-buy lenses in the new system. You do take a hit when off-loading the old lenses for the old system, but it still lets you get back up and running on the new system pretty quickly. It isn't trivial, but it also isn't too ...

Since you are totally a beginner I think you may consider buying yourself some books or just make a research for more information about basic photography just for a good start. After gaining some experience as a result of a solid foundation, you could upgrade and add some good lenses to your kid. I believe that you do not need another camera body or lenses, ...

You'll notice that after 10ft on the focus scale there is an 8 on its side. That's the symbol for infinity, the lens is designed to focus that far, if yours doesn't it may be damaged.

The optimum ISO is whatever ISO you need for the exposure you want. ISO adjustments on a digital camera simply boost the sensitivity of the sensor, either causing some forms of noise to be amplified as well or causing a reduction in dynamic range. If you were to under-expose an image and gain it up later, you still get the same noise amplification, but you ...
