I too think the new canon 16-35 f4 is has better image quality compared to the older version. But this depends for what you are using it, if you really need that extra stop of light.

The Canon 60D is compatible with both EF and EF-S lenses as it is an APS-C size crop sensor. A standard EF teleconverter will mount on a Canon 60D without a problem. I'm not sure that they are made, but if you were to find an EF-S specific teleconverter that would be an issue if you tried to mount it on a full frame camera such as the EOS 3. In your ...

M4/3 kit lenses aren't expensive. Once you look at "specialized" lenses, then it becomes more expensive, but it is my experience that M4/3 lenses can be affordable. Like others said, the EF-S 50mm 1.8, and also Nikkor 50mm 1.8D are "anomalies". I have managed to collect some micro four thirds lenses, in addition to the body, and it did not end costing me ...

The biggest differences between the two lenses can be seen at 200mm and f/2.8, but that is where many of us use a 70-200 f/2.8 the most. If you ever plan on using a 2x extender with your 70-200 f/2.8, the difference between the two lenses at 400mm are remarkable. In the end, everyone has to decide for themselves what the relationship is between "close ...

Both of the answers to your questions are outlined in the manual as Andy Blankertz noted. Manuals typically aren't very good at telling you what you can't do, but they are usually good at telling you what functionality was built. In this case, you have to deduce the fact that you can't do exactly what you want with an all in one button, but instead you have ...

Did you see the following review on the Amazon page for the product you linked to? As noted by other people who have bought this adapter, there are issues with its ability to securely mount the Pentax lens. After doing some cross-referencing with similar adapters, it is obvious that the retaining spring is on wrong! Someone had one job to do…. Spring ...

The "For Canon" is a pretty big hint, narrowing things down significantly. Since it's clearly not the current "EOS" mount, the obvious guess is that it's the previous manual-focus Canon mount, called "FD". Your image is kind of blurry, but a quick Google search or a look at a guide like this one on Keh.com (thanks @Blrfl) will confirm this — it's Canon FD. ...

I had this problem and solved it. What I did is: turn and loose the lens protection piece which was locked somehow or by someone. The problem was solved 'accidentally'..

Well, obviously, the simplest (but most expensive) path would be to get Profoto Air Syncs and hook them up as receivers to your 600EX-RTs, but that's a lot of expense to have manual-only triggers for your 600EX-RTs. However, your best bet is to sandwich a Yongnuo YN-622C (TTL radio trigger with a full TTL passthrough hotshoe) between the camera and the ...

The only thing that I can think of that would work (with manual control of the 600EXs power levels) would be the Cactus V6 trigger system. (Gadget Infinity is the retail arm of the company that makes it, in case you're wondering where the link is going.) Anything you can use to get a "dumb" trigger signal to the transmitting V6 unit will do, which would ...

Rent the 6D. Do your night shooting with the 500D and the 6D. Compare the results. This will give you an idea if the 6D is what you are looking for. A hypothetical 6D2 doesn't take any pictures right now. It will probably take better pictures than the 6D1 though, but so will the 6D3, 6D4 and 6D12. Only a direct comparison will tell you if buying a 6D is ...

There were rumors last year about a hypothetical 6DmkII due to the 6D being labelled as discontinued -- which turns out was not so true. Nothing confirmed AFAIK. What I would do is try to defer the decision until when you feel you absolutely need a new camera (old one dies out, imminent trip/wedding/shooting opportunity requiring a better body, etc.) Not ...

The purpose of A-DEP is explained in the manual (page 101): Objects in the foreground and background will be in focus automatically. All the AF points will function to detect the subject, and the aperture required to attain the necessary depth of field will be set automatically. Or in other words, it's useful when you don't know what aperture to set in ...

Canon's office in Chennai and Bangalore (India) does repair XT. Last year March 2014, I got mine done (not same nature of repair)

They won't fit directly on the mount, but you can find adapters for the Canon FD mount for all the mirrorless camera mounts, including EOS M. I'd actually suggest looking at some of the other mirrorless mounts, such as Sony NEX, Fuji X, or micro four-thirds, considering that the EOS M2/M3 and the EOS M ultrawide zoom are only sold in Asia, so the upgrade ...

Not directly, no. But you can buy an adapter that lets you use FD lenses. The adapters are rather cheap and available in most online shops. (amazon, ebay, ...) I don't own one so I don't feel like linking to a particular product. Search for "EOS-M to FD adapter".

It is not possible with your 600D. You have to use additional post-processing software like Photoshop, Gimp or something else. Please see here: http://support-au.canon.com.au/contents/AU/EN/8201440300.html and here: Can one create multiple exposure images with a Canon DSLR?

You probably have a ground loop. Theory is available here. However, this question is off-topic here... Try Googling... To test this: power off and disconnect the adapter, then take an Ohm-meter and measure the resistance from the powering (input) pins to the powered (output) pins. If you don't see it being open (resistance in the hundreds of mega-Ohm range ...

A friend of mine has a similar effect with the nifty fifty (50mm 1.8). The Lens works only on some cameras. He had to exchange the lens and now heb has an exemplar which works on all tested cameras. So suppose you have also to exchange your lens or bring it to a Canon support.

A cheap laser pointer that had tips that make a pretty pattern rather than a dot would present a target to focus on in a similar way to the assist lamp, for about a buck. You need to control it manually though. Hack the switch to make a momentary button in a convenient location as you hold the camera, and mount the laser to a "shoe" plate (or scrap of thin ...

The lens your are using and how clean it is are heavily contributing, but the basic answer is how wide open you are shooting, the increased angle is allowing heavy light scatter present in the shooting environment to blur highlights.

The first shot is front focussed and looks like it was shot wide open, so a lot of the main part of the image is out of focus, which can result in glowy halos around highlights. However the effect is more extreme than I would expect, so my guess is the front element is dirty/greasy. It also looks quite a bit like spherical aberration to me which would ...

What I see seems to be excessive color saturation. If you are you using the Landscape Picture Style, it increases saturation; see http://www.digital-slr-guide.com/canon-60d-guide.html and http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/2940244. You can use an image processing tool, such as Adobe Photoshop or the free IrfaView, to adjust saturation, providing the JPEG ...

Canon and Eastman Kodak worked together to build the famous 1D what no one seems to understand in my reading the responses is that the 1D sensor is a (CCD) sensor unique to this last partnership with Kodak. The CCD is a higher quality and expensive sensor and is approximately equal to 10 MP at 4.5 MP as to resolving power. The CCD is used by NASA and for ...

Arbitrary Release Time Lag is a new feature that Canon introduced to minimize camera shake due to mirror movement in a DSLR. In the past, savvy users have used the 2-second self-timer with mirror lockup enabled or similar techniques to achieve sharp results. The new feature gives a bit more flexibility with varying delays(1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, or 2 second). ...
