I got a Canon wireless remote. From what I see, the only way it works with the mirror lockup is to flip up the mirror, wait 2 seconds, and take picture (or wait 10 seconds?). Maybe I need to dig more deeply into my manual, but that seems to be the only way. With my 30D and a wired remote, I pressed once to flip up the mirror, and once again to fire shutter whenever I wanted. I was wondering whether it works the same way with a wired release, or will I be able to flip the mirror and wait as...

I recently was given an old (excellent condition) 30D, Shutter count < 10,000. My wife has her RX-10 and I have a X-Pro 1. My question is would it be wise to buy a Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens for such and old camera (ie. would I still still get decent images)? At approx. $800.00 not sure if good investment. Appreciate your comments. Thanks Mac

I went to my first class on Marco. Photography. The instructor talked about the wonders of the eye-FI. I have a Canon EOS 30D. I got an extreme CF Adapter and Eye-FI Connect/X-2 4 GB+Wi-Fi  SD HC 6. The Eye-FI works on my Olympus Stylus Tough, so I know The Eye-fi  works. But on my Canon EOS 30 D I get this error message Err CF. Is it the adapter? Please help. Do I need a different CF Adapter or do I need firmware or Is this camera not able to work with the adapter? Thank you Toothmom

I am curious if anybody else has noticed slow sequential shots ( 2~3 seconds ) with the Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V. We are routinely missing the "good shot" because the camera is not ready to take the next shot. Changing the drive mode to continuous shooting is not practical because then it rapid-fires and then the GUI displays a shot selection process -- so once again, the camera is not ready for the next shot. Yes, I am running a pro (Extreme Speed) memory card. My very old Canon 30D is much...

Good Day Photo Friends. I have recently acquired a taste for repairing Broken Canon Digital SLR cameras. It started with my wife purchasing a 30D body (Used) maybe 2 years ago as a spare. Worked for a wedding and the files went corrupt and Camera would no longer write to the CF Card. I noticed the files were the same size but of different file extension, i changed them back one by one and all was fine but the 30D still didn't work. No pins were bent on the CF reader so i logically chose the...

Just bought a new 70D body.  My Sigma 105-500 telephoto will not keep an AF lock on subjects; it constantly "hunts" back and forth, in and out of focus, while shooting.  I have tried AI Servo, One Shot, and AI Focus to no avail.  I've played with the focus points, OS on and off, tripod and hand held.  The lens worked flawlessly with the 30D body, so I am at a lost.  Any suggestions? 70D works great with Tamron 18-270 and other lenses.

hello peopleI'm not sure if the question has been answered before - a research brought up several similar topics, but I couldn't find the answer to my question. So, here it is: I have a 6D, a 580exII and a set of three very cheap strobes, brandless.Back to the days of 30D and 5D, life was easy: I used to plug one end of this cable into the sync port of the strobe, the other end (the female) into the 30D/5D, and just fired the flash.I tried today with the 30D, and it still works.The problem...

""The Canon T1i has the simplified AE Lock button, which unbundles the AF Lock feature from the old button on the older EOS cameras like the 20D and 30D. Marked with an asterisk (*) symbol, the AE Lock button simply holds the exposure at one setting while you recompose the image. It's very useful when spot metering, but also when dealing with subjects where you want to draw your exposure from one place, while autofocusing on another. Pressing the button with the pop-up flash activated or with...

I am going on a last minute remote shoot and gear I'm taking is 7D, 50D, 70-200 F4, Tam 200-500 f5-6.3. Question is my Tam is more power hungry than the Canon 70-200 , but the 7D focuses faster. I have two battery packs and a remote charger for my 50D. Only one with my 7D. Simply, should I ..... 1) Go with 7D and 70-200 less power consumption2) Go with 7D and Tam 200-500. Picture quality seems better with this combo than on the 50D and the 50D 70-200 combo does well, but not as quick focusing...
