    We were wrong, all of your Canon mirrorless dreams are likely coming true soon

    I have 3 Cameras, one with DPAF, which is nearly all I could could want in a DSLR vs. Video Cam. I have 8 lenses, ALL EF mount, albeit ef or ef-s. I have zero issues with a mirror, nor have I since 1974 when I bought my first Canon camera. I do not see why this whole "rush" to mirrorless even...

    ef 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II with eos 80D: Issues?

I got the camera Oct 11, 2016, and the lens May 19, 2017. My biggest issue on lost shots has been my knowledge...

    Thank You Mt. Spokane, your response came as I entered mine. I do not wish to toss these, but if needed, sobeit. I do have a volt/amp meter, I use it to read my car battery haha.

    Can I use all my old Sunpak 522 Flashes with Canon EOS

    Can I use all my old Sunpak 522 Flashes with Canon EOS

    Back in the 70s and 80s, my father and I used to listen to the police scanner, chase everything nearby, shoot it and sell it to the newspapers. I had Canon AE-1's, AE-1 Programs, A-1's and he was a medium to large format guy. Over time I had acquired 3 Sunpak 522's with all the TTL adapters...
