    Canon EOS RP body price confirmed at $1299 USD, and we’re very happy about it

    As a fence sitter on the R series, I like the pricing at intro. My grandson may be inheriting an M6 sooner than I would have anticipated. The M6 served me well as a "toe in the water" for mirrorless. Unfortunately, Canon did not factor in the size of my hands, and my need to wear transition...

    Apology to all forum members.

    He/She who is easily offended shall cast the 1st stone(1s), and might be better off as a pedestrian on the Information SuperHighway(ISH). I learn, at least something, everyday from this forum.

    Canon Has 93 Reasons You Shouldn't Settle for Smartphone Photos

    iPhone 8 is an improvement & can be fired from my Apple Watch which helps hand held/marginally steadied. M6 and 5D IV can both connect to, and be triggered by the iPhone 8 when mounted, steadied, or hand held. For the internet, everything seems to be a go, but if you want to snap something...

    Fantastic Deals this Year: Thoughts, Opinions, Confessions

    Took a decent Turkey Day deal on a M6w/long lens, and got a deeply discounted EF-EOS M Adapter as my added bonus just in case. So far, M6 seems like it will make a great light travel camera, as I age and get more lazy. 8)

    Which software for video editing?

    Adobe Premiere Elements is OK for quick small projects Reasonably easy to learn, & a decent support forum for typical questions, plus the price doesn't break the bank. I'm a MAC person, but my expectations for the Windows version would be the same. HD speed & capacity, and memory size are...

    Is There a Definitive 85 to Get?

    With my marginal talent, and aging hands, I like the sound of the 1.4 IS. Hopefully, it is also "easy to dance to".

    How happy are you with your 5D Mark IV?

    Very trustworthy all around performer from the beach to fireworks. Touch screen is very handy for certain shots. I can carry it all day. unlike the brick which is now restricted to half days due to my agin carcass. :)

    Lightroom 7 rumor

    No real problems with the subscription model(plus Canon software), not overly expensive, works well enough in my agin neanderthal hands. However, I think Apple might have missed the Ark, with Aperture. Full Disclosure: "I learned it first".

    New DSLR Series Coming in 2018? [CR1]

    Interesting! Refreshing lenses this year, next year maybe bodies, eh? "M16" would imply AF w/alacrity & FPS w/celerity, but mostly I would like to see some sort of card standard before ponying up the $ for new bodies. I don't care what it is, but would like some sort of standard as my...

    What is your Canon wish list ?

    M6 is starting to sound interesting, along with the new 85L IS. Looks like the grandchildren will inherit a S95 and a SL1, both still working well, but the test is what happens when in the hands of 5-9 year oldes. :)

    Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM Coming April 5, 2017 [CR3]

    EF 50 1.2 L - rather buy older or newer copy of this lens?

    No issues with my (+/- 2103) 1.2. However, the new 35L is much easier for making those last second, adaptations to get the shot.
