    Fast Glass, re my noise comments. You'll noticed I didn't say the FF high MP cameras had a noise issue. I haven't got images (or the inclination) to check. But Canon definitely created a noise...

    I didn't vote, as I'm hardly shooting these days, but slclick's comment inspired me to write my own journey.

    I went from 15.1 MP (T1i), to 18 MP (7D), to 16.6 MP (1Ds mk II), to 20.2 MP (7D mk...

    First week goes to "First Light". Congrats Johnathan.

    Nice shot Brant, but the Jonathan's larger splash of color, reflection, and more varied and interesting framing puts him over the top.

    Even if not resolvable via a quick home fix, Canon will fix it out of warranty, it just won't be free. I think 10 years ago they had a minimum repair fee of $250. No idea what that fee is today,...

    Check your AF setup. I think Canon usually defaults to Servo bursts using Shutter Priority, then Focus Priority, so the first shot is taken when you press the shutter, focussed or not (okay for...

    A grab on market share during a rare Canon mount change, when pros might consider replacing a lot of glass with the new versions as they release, along with a body change. Smart move.

    I have no idea what the speed is on the Z9. When I mentioned the flash speed above, I meant historically for Canon it's been 180-250, with 250 on the higher end bodies, and I was also under the...

    That's similar to the max shutter rate when using a flash, so similar to full open/full closed shutter timing... but faster shutter speeds tend to start the closing cycle before the opening cycle is...

    Not just nature, but sports. For my uses, it was dog sports, trying to catch a dog just as it either leaps towards or crests a jump, exits a tunnel, etc.

    It's a good thing it has good high-ISO handling, because it seems Canon is really pushing slow glass in the RF mount. They've got 600 f/11, an 800 f/11, a 100-500L f/4.5-7.1, and now their 100-400...
