    Shutter issue??

    I needed a new shutter. Mt Spokane Photography, yes the problem was worse the higher the shutter speed. Just for reference, the new shutter with my 30% CPS discount cost me $290, without the discount and free shipping, it would have been about $420.

    Shutter issue??

    Notice the banding on the far left side of the frame. Does not happen on every shot. Does not happen on any horizontal shots. Shot with 1dx and 400mm f/2,8L III.

    EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III availability

    Amazingly, after being told by Canon just yesterday that they had no idea when it would be in stock, it showed up today at two retailers. Ordered.

    EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III availability

    I contacted Canon USA yesterday regarding the availability of this lens because it is nowhere to be found, it even notes backordered in the Canon store. I guess when they released it in December there must have been two of them???? Anyway, just FYI, they replied today indicating they have no...

    What’s next for the Canon EOS R system and the rest of the lineup?

    I think we will learn a lot more about a pro body after the 2020 Olympics. I have no plans to replace any bodies prior to then. I would like the new 400mm f2.8L III, but I don't even know what to do there. Will there be an R version of this lens in 2-3 years???? Who knows.

    Two Canon EOS R series bodies coming in 2019 [CR2]

    I know that I won't be upgrading any bodies or lenses for the next year or two until I have a clear vision of where Canon is headed.

    Stock Notice: Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III in stock at Adorama

    I’ll be curious to see the tests to determine if there is any difference in IQ. If not, I’ll be buying a V2 for $3K less. Not concerned with the weight as I’ll always be using it on a monopod or tripod.

    POLL? How many are preordering the EOS R?

    I’ll borrow one from CPS after they are released and try it out. The first one I actually buy though will need a dual card set-up, so the wait continues.

    Canon officially announces the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III & EF 600mm f/4L IS III. The worlds lightest lenses of their kind

    Looking forward to the arrival of the 400 and the subsequent reviews. I'm in the market for this lens. If the weight is the only major difference with little to no difference in IQ, I'll snag version II. I don't mind the weight. I hand hold my 300 2.8 shooting basketball and volleyball all...

    Time for a playful topic! What's in your two lens bag?

    Mine varies depending on what I'm shooting. With that said, the 70-200 2.8 is almost always one of the two in the bag going out the door.

    Whoop here it is ; ad600 PRO

    I just bought two of thee and they arrived today. These are the first moonlights I have owned, used 600ex-rt speed lights prior. I played around with these all afternoon and I can tell that I will really enjoy these, especially when strobing HS sports in gyms where I use the speedlights now...

    Here are the Results From Our Poll Regarding Camera Innovation Perception at Canon

    Sad, but true. I have been using Canon cameras exclusively since I picked up my first camera (AE-1) in 1979-80ish. i have been an ambassador for the brand, recommending them to many for years. However, of late, it is becoming harder and harder to do. They may be the top seller out there, but...

    "Sony A7R III is Pretty Much the New Canon 5D for Pros"

    Ive never even held a Sony in my hands, but I can tell from looking at it that it would not work for me ergonomically. I shoot lots of sports freelance for local newspapers and that tiny little body looks very uncomfortable. My 1dx is perfect, and I can't shoot my 5d3 or 7d mkII without the...

    Canon CPS

    I've been a Canon CPS member now for the last four years, with the two most recent years being a Platinum member. I am very pleased with the service and help I have received from the support staff and those who do the work on my cameras and lenses at the Newport News facility. I had a bit of...
