    Video Stabilization with a DSLR

    I'm wondering what the best way to get stable videos would be, outside of using my tripod. There are times when taking and setting up a tripod isn't very practical. I shoot short clips of vacation activities and outdoor shots most of the time. I don't have Image Stabilization on my 16-35mm...

    Raspberry Pi Camera Attachment... GPS?

    http://davidhunt.ie/?p=2641 This is a very cool implementation of a Raspberry Pi into a Battery Grip. It basically puts a Linux computer right on the camera with a connection through the USB port. Since I would like to get to the point where I can add GPS coordinates into my photos as I...

    Shutter doesn't sound good and stays open too long - 50D

    I have a 50D camera that is about 3 years old that we abuse pretty good. But recently it takes photos at 1/400 or 1/800th yet they are very washed out. (Good photos and bad photos have the same EXIF data) If you listen to the shutter it doesn't sound like the normal click. Now, we are using...

    Has anyone every had any problems with the customs people either going to or coming back from a country with thousands of dollars worth of camera gear? Do I need a document saying that I have purchased this gear and will bring back the same gear? Have you ever run into an airline that doesn't...

    Help me justify the 17mm TS-E

    I have been reading the reviews, and know that this lens can do things my 16-35mm can't. But, what type of pictures besides buildings and cities can I expect to take with this? I will admit that I like the results from this lens that other people have produced...

    Color temp of pictures using flash

    I am trying to practice using my flash some more. I use manual settings, and the exposure meter seems to be pretty worthless when using a flash. I might be able to post some pictures if it helps, but what is happening is that if I have a quick shutter speed, the pictures show up white. If I...

    85mm f/1.8 or 300mm f/4 for baby photos

    I'm not the best photographer of people, and have never taken pictures of babies before. But my sister is going to have twins in the next 2 weeks, and I would like to take some good photos with the 5Dm2. Preferably without my 580 flash... I won't have very much time to take the pictures, and...

    Astrophotography telescope 'lens'?

    Over the last two nights I have been using my 5Dm2 with a 300 f/4 with a 2x & 1.4x stacked teleconverters to get it to 840mm, and it took some great pictures of the Moon, although I think another 2x would be good for the Moon (~2000mm to get it full frame). At 840mm, I could see Jupiter and 4...

    What gear and lenses should I get next?

    I currently have a 5Dm2, and a 16-35mm, 85 f/1.8, and a 300mm f/4 lens. I am trying to write this post to keep my thoughts straight, but any suggestions would be good. Or maybe Santa is real and this is my Christmas list. I am probably going to get a WFT grip, and the GPS adapter to geotag my...

    Is a new WFT-E4 IIa being developed?

    Or does anyone know what is going on with this? Most places on-line are 'out of stock', Adorama looks like they might have some, but is a new version coming out? Maybe with GPS built-in???
