Are any parts interchangeable between the Canon 30D and 40D? The shutter speed wheel is toast on my 40D and was hoping I could use the one from my 30D.  (or conversely, if anyone is interested in both I could be convinced to discuss that too. I just picked up a very nice used 80D with only 11k clicks.) I was just thinking the 40D could be a nice back up body. I have a lot fond memories from 10 years ago and beyond when my wife and shot weddings; she with her Medium Format and I with the...

Hey everyone, first post! I'm a beginner photographer looking to shoot some of my friends' high school hockey games in the next few weeks. Playing hockey myself, I know how awesome getting epic pictures after your game makes you feel! I need help with my camera settings, if possible. I'm not using the best of the best equipment or anything (I got what I could find for cheap, I'm a broke college student lol), so I'm not expecting NHL photographer quality or anything.  I'm working with a Canon...

I recently upgraded from a 20D to a 90D. I'm still learning how to use the camera and all of the new features. I was shooting or of my office window at a bird in a nearby tree. The images seem to be affected by what looks like motion blur. I was using a tripod, but didn't have the ball had tightly locked down. I was using a 400mm f5.6L with the lens tripod collar attached to the tripod. I was experimenting with live view versus viewfinder and a bunch of other parameters. All of the images...

My son-in-law has an EOS 20D with the original EF 75-300mm zoom. Will this lens work on his daughter's Rebel SL2?  Autofocus and exposure? I cannot find this info anywhere probably because the camera/lens combination is so out-of-date.  I have tried to convince him to get an 80D or 90D and the latest version of the lens...but noooo!

I've been using Canon gear for a long time. I still have my original EOS 1 film body. My first and only digital body is a 20D. I've built up a nice collection of EF mount lenses including many L series and some EF-S lenses esp. at very short focal length for the 20D's APS-C smaller sensor. I'm looking to upgrade my digital body, with the primary considerations being on image quality and video capability. I'm looking to spend $1,000 or less on the body. I'm currently think about either an 80D...

I've had a 7D for a while and getting back into using it.  I came to it from EOS 5 then 20D then 7D.  I bought it new with a 15-85 EFS which is OK for most of what I do but not wide enough for some stuff and too short for others.  I recently sold my 20-35 EF as it was gathering dust since getting the 20D and replaced it with a 10-18 EFS which gets me back a useful wide angle. I did have a 70-210 EF 3.5/4.5 which I loved for portraits and general family photos with nice background blur. ...

Throughout the years, I was a Canon man, going from 10D to 20D, 40D, 5D Mark II, and the 1D Mark IV.  I sold most of my gear a few years ago when I slowly but surely started falling in love with Fuji cameras.  I started with the X-Pro2, X-T2, X-T3, and now I have a GFX 50R which is really awesome.  I still have some of my Canon L lenses and I am often torn about selling them for some reason.  Have any of you GFX users held on to your "old" Canon/Nikon equipment?

Hi, EOS70D with my beloved Speedlite 580ex (not ex ii) on top used since days I had 20D and now 3 yrs or so with 70D. My workhorse flashgun.  never had an issue. I have taken many shots with it so I do know how it works. It always works straight from batteries in, onto hotshoe and turn on. First shot on a shoot and its totally overexposed lets say 7 stops ! almost white. I manage to get it behaving yet dont know how, and then a bit later same problem. After more on and off moments success...

I'm trying to get back into digital photography after being away a long time. I have an old 20d that I want to upgrade from but I'm debating staying with the canon system or moving to another brand. I have a couple of lenses 17-40 1.4 and also a 50mm 1.8 prime. I'm not quite sure what I want to shoot yet, (maybe portraits?) but I do want 4k video - i'm hearing canon isn't quite up to par here and Sony is better? There are rumors of a 90D but also these mirrorless cameras. Can someone fill in...
