    There is no conversion for full frame digital cameras (such as D600, 700 or 800 in the case of Nikon). For cameras with sensors smaller than 35mm you have the crop factor - basically a number you can...

    Tripod tips

    Hi all,

    I find myself in a need of a new tripod - one that would be sturdy enough to hold my 5D Mk2 but light enough at the same time for me to carry it around - so I was wondering if anyone would...

    Shooting against white (or any other) background is more of a technical issue of lighting the object and getting the contrast and everything else right, and I don't think you will find any camera...

    Fisheye for EOS 5D MK2

    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering, which fisheye lenses people tend to use with FF cameras? I'm not feeling prepared to spend $1,500 for the Canon EF 8-15 f/4L as I'm not entirely sure how much use...

    Opteka Fisheye

    Hi,

    for some time I've been pondering over buying a fisheye lens, but I'm far from sure I'd use it enough to justify the 1000+ I'd have to pay for instance for the EF 8-15 L fisheye.
    And just...

    I'm afraid, broadly speaking, the larger the camera, the better the photos - at least on the very basic level of DSLRs being usually larger than ultrazooms and those being larger than compacts. And...

    Thanks for the answers guys. TheWengler, I've forgotten to say that, the filter is for a FF camera, so no crop factor there.
