With 70D or D600 you wouldn't have any cash for lens left, and without proper lens you can't make good use of them. Decide on lens first and then best body you can afford with spare cash. Flash with ability to be bounced off the ceiling (if ceilings are white-ish) would probably be the best way to improve photos in your situation. Learning to use flash ...

My SLRs were $140 to replace the shutter mechanism. I don't think what's behind the shutter (D or film) would matter. For some reason both of my EOS bodies failed around the same time. Certainly not the kind of usage like journalists, and film used much less exposures. So I don't think it was shutter count at all. Probably physical age (10 years in ...

According to Nikon USA, it is just a power supply and does not charge the battery. Q: Will this also charge the camera batteries or is it just a power supply? A: It's just a power supply. See Q&A at the bottom of this page. http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Product-Archive/Power-Adapters/EH-5a-AC-Adapter.html

Camera manufacturers, more than anyone else, does have the best "know-how" on where to place, what. Every single control or surface on the camera, just like its feature set, has been carefully studied and modified, over the years, to assure giving its user the best experience with the product, taking into consideration other factors, such as logical ...

Funny that a non photographer is asking for a camera in a specific price range. I understand that they need to shoot the models inside the art gallery. It is a diferent scenario of a runway and it is a diferent from shooting just the models. 1) If you need to shoot both at the same time, you need to be flexible, so you need a zoom lens, so the one included ...

At that price range, and without any other specific instructions, it is almost certain that the students will be expected to have the kit lens (18-55mm or 18-[something slightly longer]) that often comes with a new crop-sensor (APS-C or DX) camera. Apart from the slightly inconvenient fact that Nikon users will have a slight advantage over Canon users in the ...

in your case i would buy a entry-level DSLR-body like a Nikon D3300 and a 50mm f1.8 prime lense. This lense is made for such scenarios and you can achieve very sharp and high quality images and you have enough money left to care about studio lightning :)

The Cowboy studio trigger is a manual-only trigger. If you turn the transmitter over and look at the foot it only has a single pin--this is the "sync" or "fire!" signal pin, and is compatible across all brands of cameras/flashes (except for the older Sony gear that uses the proprietary Minolta hotshoe). However. The menu communication with a flash is done ...

It's likely that there is either a sensor problem, or the mechanism does have dust in it somewhere which is causing resistance. This is something you already know. None of those are things you can either check for or repair yourself without a suitable dust-free workspace and the appropriate knowledge - attempting to do so will most likely make things ...

A little history might give some perspective, sorry if I'm repeating what everyone already knows. Historically SLR's (and especially miniature format SLRs -- i.e. 35mm) became popular because other camera designs available at the time couldn't offer a wide variety of lenses that could be easily used off tripod. With view cameras (think of Ansel Adams), the ...

As a rule of thumb, if the lens comes with a tripod ring, you hold the lens with a camera attached rather than the typical holding the camera with the lens attached. If you have a heavy lens and try to hold it up with the camera it could put extra stress on the mount.

There are some techical situations where I prefer to use the viewfinder on a DSLR, for example with to much light arround me... It is hard to see the viewfinder in some light conditions, for example with the sun on a beach. A more specific technical situation is speed of response. You are seeing the moment as it is happening. A blink of your subject, a ...

What's the point of a DSLR? To take pictures. A DSLR is just one type of camera. Like all other cameras, a DSLR is just a tool. Many photos can be taken with pretty much any camera. Others, though, might require specialized abilities that are offered in only certain types of cameras. In some cases the size, weight, and complexity of some DSLRs allow ...
