Before I send or drive to Canon repair center to get an estimate does anyone have an idea what the costs of repair may total. I only use this lens on my 40D that has been converted to shoot IR and was thinking it might be better to chuck the lens and replace to with the Canon 10-18mm for about $279. None of the  glass appears to be damaged but the lens separated into two pieces which disconnected the two electronic ribbons. The damage to the front where the lens hit the ground is only...

Hi, I have an M10 that I picked up for a song and I love using as a daily camera instead of my 40D (I think its still a great camera, but weights over a million tonnes).  I also have a Speedlight 580EXii that I can use with the M10 using an optical trigger, but I was wondering if anyone had found any other way of triggering an external flash that may be a bit more reliable? Thanks folks.

I've recently went to caving, and I got myself and the camera a bit muddy. When I got the camera clean at home, I found the ' main dial' (The scroll pointed on the picture) isn't scrolling properly. Normally when you scroll it, it will make a nice ticking noise. However after caving, when I scroll it kind of just scroll smoothly without the ticking noise, and when it's smooth when you scroll it,  the shutter speed doesn't change. Note that: when I'm holding the camera, if I scroll it to the...

I'm wondering if the replacement shutter for the 20D/30D is an improved design. Or is it the same as the original??? I have both the 40D & 20D, but would be happy to get my 20D working again.

I have an Eos 40d that returns Err99 when the shutter is activated. First guess would be avshutter problem, but the shutter opens and closes correctly in clean mode or in live view.  I can even take photos in live view mode where the shutter is kept open.   Photos store and recall properly so it's not a CF problem.  Not a lens problem either.  Any ideas?  Thanks Mark

Just upgraded from 40D to 80D so it's been a while since I had to go through all the camera settings and I'm sure the 80D has some new ones. Any recommendations on some of the basic or more advanced setup?

I've used a couple of different angle finders on the 10D, 20D, 40D and the 5Dmk2 without any issues. Now I have a 5D mark 4 and neither finder fits. I no longer have any of the adapters that must have come with the finders - probably bought the finders used. Never worried about it as they always fit, but it seems the 5Dmk4 has a bit wider view finder than previous finders. On the net I came across a Canon angle finder C that only has the Ec-C adapter and not the Ed-C one. I am wondering if...

My family and I will be going to Hawaii. My wife will be taking her 7D Mark II with a telephoto lens for birding and I will be taking a camera for general photography (landscapes, family, etc.) I know of many spots where I want shots on the beach and several locations where I will be wading out in the ocean with the camera to get a landscape shot looking back at the shore. I was planning on taking my 6D with the 24-105 and 17-40 lens. I am wondering however with salt water and sand if it is...

Hi guys, Just noticed a sudden issue with my Canon 40D. This hideous shadow appearing in the top right of every image. Have shot with different lenses, different apertures, turned all custom functions on and off, am NOT using flash. I'm guessing it's a mechanical shutter issue or perhaps the mirror isn't getting fully out of the way in time? The shutter mechanism was replaced a few years ago but I guess it's getting old again.
