It all depends on which lens is mounted on the camera. If you have an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM stepping motor lens the front element neither rotates nor moves in and out as it is focusing because it has internal focusing. Many other lenses, such as the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II, do not feature internal focusing and so the front element rotates and ...

Shutter lag of the XTi Measurements by Luk at doc-diy.net show this camera has an average* 116mS lag without mirror lockup, and a 66mS lag with mirror lockup. Fast pinewood derby cars travel about 10 feet per second (3 m/s), leading to a 7-14" (18-36cm) travel time before the image is captured. While the camera would never be used for judging, this is long ...

You should also be able to see this same scale in the viewfinder. What that scale represents, in part, depends on what shooting mode your camera is in. If you are in an automated mode (Av/Tv/P/Auto, the scene modes, etc), then it acts as an exposure compensation scale. It is marked off in exposure values (EV), or stops. Dialing it to the + side of the ...

Given that everything's on manual, that you're firing the flash at full power (1/1), and that you think waiting one second between shots is sufficient, I'm going to take an educated guess and say that your problem is that you're not waiting for the flash to fully recycle before you take a shot and/or you've got the power level on the flash set too high. It ...

All that information and more is already saved in the EXIF data attached to each image. Any good photo editor will show it to you.


2

Yes. The EMF chip, when correctly positioned and glued to an adapter ring will perform autofocus confirmation and communicate EXIF lens information (focal length, max. aperture, and even the aperture setting used--if you follow the correct steps while shooting) on a digital Canon EOS body (I've used them on an XT, 50D, and 5DMkII). The adapter ring and the ...

The Yongnuo YN600EX-RT is pretty much a clone of the Canon 600EX-RT and can be used as either master or slave in combination with it.

If you have Magic Lantern installed you can check the shutter count on your 60D. All you need to do is install Magic Lantern on your EOS, press MENU and then DISP. The shutter count will appear at the bottom of the screen. Another way to find the shutter count on many EOS models, including the 60D, is to use EOSInfo. You can download it from the developer's ...

By buying from another country, you are effectively buying on the gray market (related: Is there a drawback in buying an imported (gray market) lens?). You will find it difficult to make use of a warranty or in some cases, even authorized repair shops will be hesitant to touch it. You are also going to pay... what appears to be $27 for shopping in this ...

If you are talking about the 6D, it has built-in Wi-Fi and Canon has free tethering software for both computers and mobile devices. http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/standard_display/cameraconnect_app_features http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/standard_display/EOS_app http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/standard_display/eos_utility These are ...

I have a couple of Eye-Fi's....Pumped 10,000+ pics through the main one (jpg/RAW/video), with nary a burp, from a Fuji HS-10. Never done it to an iPad though...just directly to the main PC or laptop.


1

What you are looking for is called tethered shooting. With a laptop or a USB OTG enabled Android device, you need nothing more than a USB cable and some (free) software. E.g. Canon's EOS utility, or Lightroom, on the computer. With the iPad, you are out of luck in this regard, AFAIK, apart from your mentioned EyeFi solution.

The reviews of the one LP-E6 solar charger that I could find online were poor. Perhaps a better approach would be either: Bring extra batteries, available for ~US$15. Eight or ten LP-E6's would still weigh less than a solar charger. According to DPReview of a Canon EOS 6D, that should be good for ~8,000 - 10,000 photos (though I don't know how long a ...

I'm a little confused by your question. Wireless 2nd-curtain sync is not possible with Canon OEM gear; but is possible with Yongnuo flashes and radio triggers with a Canon body. If you use Yongnuo TTL/HSS-capable flashes and triggers, then you can do wireless 2nd-curtain sync. If you use Canon's RT or optical slaving gear, you can't.


1

Depends on what method of slaving we're talking about and your definition of reliable. If you mean as a dumb optical slave, where the main flash burst from the 600EX-RT can trigger the flash, then all of the YN flashes have "dumb" slave modes on them. If you mean as a wireless eTTL near-infrared optical slave, then any of the Yongnuo flashes with EX in the ...

There is a way to connect the camera to a wall plug: the Canon ACK-DC40 AC adapter kit. The Canon USA website lists it as being compatible with the Powershot S120.

If this is like every other Canon camera, Av exposes for ambient, and uses the Flash for fill. P assumes the foreground is the subject, so it exposes for that. For your Av photo, the camera found the subject very dark, so pushed to get as much light as possible, However, the fill flash was close to the subject, so it is over exposed. You can see that the ...

If you look towards the front element it will say STM:


1

f/4.5 - f/6.3 is only the wide open aperture. It varies from f/4.5 at 50mm to f/6.3 at 500mm. You can select f/8 or f/11 or f/22 anytime you want at any focal length. At 50mm you can select f/4.5 but if you zoom to 500mm, the aperture will automatically jump to f/6.3 No you can't hurt the lens by selecting f/22. It is designed to operate that way.

You can check if the image files are present on the card by going to: My Computer, Your Card Name, DCIM You should now be able to see one or more folders. All the photos you have taken should be stored in these folders. From here you can select all the images and drag and drop them into your computer. As said above some of your images may be in RAW format ...

It is a simple fact that Canon cameras with Magic Lantern installed have a slower start-up time. There is nothing you can do to improve the start-up time.


1

The STM version is better because it has faster, smoother AF, and the front element does not rotate. The optics are also improved which gives you better image quality. The STM focus ring is active during Auto Focus and you can small manual adjustments to focus. This is called Full Time Manual Focus. The STM version also has a much nicer EW-63C lens hood. ...
