    Bought a new camera! Canon 80D

    This was not about GAS, rather a well thought out decision. The T2i has been a great camera, but I've outgrown it. Just not fast enough for wildlife photography. Might be eating Ramen for a while, but didn't want to settle and pine for better right away. There's always going to be better...

    Canon 80D vs Canon 7D Mark 2

    Hello, I need some help deciding between the Canon 80D and 7D Mark 2. I've been doing a lot of research and talked to a Canon representative, but I'm essentially treading water on the decision. I plan to do most photography dealing with waterfowl on water and in flight, and retriever breeds...

    80D focus problems???

    G'day guys! As the title says.. am I having focus issues with my 80D? Recently I purchased a canon 80d and sigma 18-35mm as my upgrade coming from a 700d. First thing I noticed was back focusing (further than intended focus point) using the sigma lens, minor at 35mm but ridiculous at 18mm. I...

    New lens dilemma

    I am trying to decide what should be my next lens. I'm between the Canon 10-18 STM and the Canon 55-250 STM. I know they are very different, but i'm trying to decide which one would be more useful for travel. I currently have a 80D, 18-135, and 50 f/1.4. Which one should I get first or just be...

    Shooting the Stars

    I've been practicing shooting the stars, but they don't turn out as good as I wish they would. Any tips on how to do better long exposures? I shoot on a crop sensor if that has any impact on my results. I would eventually like to do time lapses of the galaxy.

    70-300 or 70-200L?

    I am debating whether to buy the soon to be released Canon 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM, or the Canon 70-200 mm f/4L USM. They are nearly the same price and I am torn. I am in need of a new telephoto lens. Currently there is little information on the 70-300, but the specifications seem promising...
