    Portrait lense help

    Yep, no rules, and a 50mm on an APS-C body is fine and makes for a very good starting point.

    "Panasonic G series" Owners Thread

    I know it's early, but have a cup of coffee and a fag and chill out eh, Cagey :LOL::LOL::LOL: I was simply trying to be more specific about my ask, because woof woof's original response before he edited it missed the point. Of course you can't guarantee that dust can't get in between the...

    "Panasonic G series" Owners Thread

    @woof woof: you edited your previous post after I replied to it to include 'If it's not clean try again?', that's why I asked what you were talking about. Your last is predicated on the conclusion that I've only cleaned it once. I haven't, I've cleaned it a number of times, so it's not me...

    "Panasonic G series" Owners Thread

    What should be ok? My point is I've done the wet clean, but there's still a lot of dust. The gap between the filter and the sensor looks like at least a millimetre, which means that a lot of dust could collect in there which can't be reached. Has anyone felt the need to send the camera off to a...

    "Panasonic G series" Owners Thread

    Has anyone here attempted a wet sensor clean with their G-series camera? I ask because I noticed quite a few specks of dust/dirt on my GX7's sensor when viewing at f/22, so I purchased some suitable swabs and solution and got cleaning. However, despite approaching the job methodically...

    You can use the Q button with the multi function toggle and the main dial to change the drive and AF modes.

    Peak Design Everyday Sling 10L

    Yeah PD are good, although a bit overpriced, especially their bags. Shouldn't this be in the Talk Equipment section?

    Question regarding using battery grips with sling straps, and also grip resale values.

    I recommend getting a 3rd party grip: essentially the same build quality as the OEM grip but much less expensive. The residual value of a grip is going to be dictated by the popularity/availability of the body it's specifically designed for.

    Question regarding using battery grips with sling straps, and also grip resale values.

    Yep, if screwed in tightly and correctly, the grip is strong enough to hold your camera/lens with one end of your Slide attached to it. But why use the tripod connector when there should be a tether slot on the underside of the grip to which you can attach a Peak Design anchor anyway?

    5Dmk3 back dial not working - how to reset exp comp?

    I've had a look and although you can reassign the quick control (back) dial's function in M mode, in the semi-automatic modes, where adjusting exposure compensation comes into play, the main (front) dial always controls the primary input, and the back dial provides the compensation adjustment...

    5Dmk3 back dial not working - how to reset exp comp?

    Why would you not be able to set up your own custom settings again? If doing a factory reset fixes the problem then a voila. If it doesn't, you've lost nothing, your back to square one.

    Canon 5D Mark 3

    Perhaps because it came out six years ago and was superseded by the Mk IV in 2016? Nothing to get alarmed about. They don't keep punting out previous models forever. And if I were you I'd purchase one used: plenty about and much better vfm.

    Motion blur background?

    With no disrespect to the OP, it is after all a beginner's level question (I discern that from the way he asks if such a shot - even one featuring a car - can only be acheived in post), and I think the OP would be hard pressed to provide an example picture of a runner who's body is entirely...

    Upgrading from a 13" to a 15" MBP for Lightroom?

    Very weird, Cobby old chap. And, btw, it's 'bear with me', not 'bare with me'... unless you're getting undressed and wanted us to do the same ;)

    Samsung’s Galaxy S9 is the way to wean yourself off of DSLRs

    You'll only match the FF look on a phone if you stick an FF sensor in it, then a lens large enough to do it justice on that. That's physics, innit.

    Canon ef 17-40 f4L or 24-70f4L Advice/Opinions Please

    I'm going to suggest the 24-105 also: such a versatile lens, even if not the fastest zoom available (f-stop wise). If I really need a wide aperture I'lI use a prime. But for general stuff it's hard to beat.

    Canon 70-200 f4 L & f4 L IS

    The old one has 16 elements, the IS one has 20 elements = different design.

    Canon 70-200 f4 L & f4 L IS

    Yep, the IS version is optically better. The non-IS version came out in 1999, the IS in 2006: they don't simply bolt an image stabiliser onto an already existing lens, the newer version will be a revised design optically. I had the IS version for a while before trading up to the 2.8 II version...

    Upgrading from a 13" to a 15" MBP for Lightroom?

    I've been using a 24" Dell Ultrasharp with a 1920×1200 res screen and there's no way the pixels are too big. It has a wide enough colour gamut to deliver 96% AdobeRGB, and works really well with my 15" MBP. Am thinking when it comes to upgrading my MBP I'll get a 13" one and a second Dell...

    Best rechargeables for Speedlites ?

    Thanks for the offer but I'm interested to find out if there are any good quality charges on the market, conditioning the batteries as you previously mentioned. I've had duracell own brand chargers in the past that charge batteries in twos and warm up and don't seem that great to me, so if...
