No The 600D uses the built in pop-up flash for the focus assist light, the pop-up flash pops up too close the the external flash if one is connected - there are many external flashes and accessories that would be hit by the popup flash if it tried to open when they are connected. So, as a safeguard the camera will not open the popup flash if there is ...

There have been a lot of technological advances in the past eight years, the most visible of which will be noise performance in low light, overall speed, and convenience features like live view with a large rear LCD. It sounds like you are not really taking advantage of your DSLR in more ways than just not using advanced features – you're only using the kit ...

Canon 6D's RAW files are somewhere in 23 to 28 MB range (24-26 on average), depending on what settings (particularly ISO) you have and what theme you photograph. Note: The size variance is due of Canon's CR2 has loseless compression inside as well as some JPG thumbnails/previews of the actual RAW data and also because, as I said, some settings (for example ...

My personal druthers would be to keep the XT, buy a nice fast prime for portrait shots, and learn to use the camera. But. As a new parent, this is probably more trouble/time/effort/money than you want to spend. Particularly in light of the fact that you never really got to know your XT well enough to a) buy other lenses for it, or b) get better results from ...

Yes you can. Refer pg 305 of the standard English manual. Custom function C.Fn I-5 'Number of bracketed shots' 0: 3 shots (default) 1: 2 shots 2: 5 shots 3: 7 shots FYI: C.Fn I-4 lets you change the sequence of brackets shots - this could be useful when creating HDR shots as the order of the photos is from lowest to highest exposure value. 0: 0 - + ...

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, ...

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 ...

Unfortunately it is not possible to increase the magnification to more than 10x with the official firmware of the Canon 6D. The only possible are actually 1x, 5x and 10x. I'm not even sure if it is possible to create a firmware capable of magnifying it even further. Looking at the resources at Magic Lantern here and here (an unofficial firmware for the ...

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 ...

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, ...

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:

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 ...

Set your desired shutter speed and aperture. Meter off the skin tones. Adjust ISO until the meter shows one stop of over exposure. Shoot.

It is a 2x teleconverter. For all practical purposes, 2x teleconverters are not very useful on slow zoom lenses because it simply costs too much light - two full stops. The Canon 55-200 f/4-5.6 with a 2x teleconverter will become a 110-400 f/8-11. Keeping the shutter speeds reasonable on such a long and slow lens will not be easy. Autofocus will struggle, ...

Rokinon/Samyang lenses will work on your Canon body, but for a given value of "works". It will mount, you can focus it, you can set the aperture, you will have accurate stop-down metering, and you can take an image with it. But you cannot autofocus. You cannot have wide-open metering. You cannot shoot in modes other than M or Av, because the camera cannot ...
