Re: Introduce yourself!

My name is Tony. I have been a Canon guy since I bought the 10D when it first came out. Since then, I have owned a 7D; a 5D i; 5D ii; 5Diii and currently own the iv. I teach composition; teach Photoshop; lead photo workshop trips and sell B2B: wall art and jumbo panos to buildings. My next big workshop trip is to North Dakota this fall.


I have a question on my 5Div. My cable remote stopped working two weeks ago. It works on another body but not the iv. The connection port is clean. Could some new camera setting have stopped it from functioning?

Introduce yourself!

Hi Everyone,


I am very new to this and also new to photography. My name is Sharin and am from Vanuatu! Smiley Happy I have just started doing photography this year but just doing basic stuff using Canon Rebel T5. However, in the last few months i was busy with work and didnt do much and just recently i thought to use the camera again but notice the images were blur and not focused at all. 


Can someone help? i don't know what to do.. all i did was clean the lenses haha.. 


Please help.

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hi Sharin,

My name is Liz, live on the west coast, and I am also fairly new to this, I've had my rebel SL1 for about a year now, and still learning.  IMHO, the FIRSt thing you should review (and review again and again) is your settings and the menu in the camera.  Check your focus settings and change it to one of the auto focus settings, see if that turns it back on..  Also, check your lens, be sure its also turned on.  If nothing  works, try re-setting it  to the factory re-set, it wont change your time/date or any of that.  Let us know if t hat works.  Best of luck, I hope that solves the issue.  Sometimes when there is low light, the AF doesnt work b/c it cant see what to focus on, so have to go to M.

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hi all.


I'm Maureen. A beginner in photography, so I need all the help I can get! hahahaha

I've got a Canon 1300D. I've done a basic photography course which has taught me to actually use the settings

on my camera, instead of AUTO. I'm enjoying it and would like to learn more so I'll be scouting this forum Smiley Happy 

Have a great day further.

Re: Introduce yourself!

I just posted a very long reply in a specific topic "Please make MP Navigator EX work with MX922", with many images to show that there is a very worthy replacement for the MP Navigator EX, and it works beautifully.


I just wanted to check it and edit it a bit and it seems to have disappeared. I am not going to post the whole thing again, I spent about an hour on it.


I am angry that my very long post explaining exactly what I did to get this seems to have disappeared. Below my name, New Contributor and Avatar image on the left is does say Posts: 2. But I cannot see my first post anymore. I am so angry about this. I thought this could really help a bunch of people.
