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.

I'm currently a Lumix G7 user, and I normally wouldn't give into gear acquisition syndrome in this way, but... Let's face it, the battery life on the G7 is kinda...mediocre (especially compared to the "big Canons" I've used in the past - EOS 40D, etc.)...and while it's not a big deal on most vacations to just bring more batteries, I'm going on a trip later this year where I will likely be 10 or so days without regular access to mains power.  Most days while shooting on vacation, I go through...

Hi everyone. First time poster, long time random creeper (reader). Sorry in advance for the long post. I am considering the investment of a new camera, but I would like to get some opinions on the options I am considering. Most of my photography is landscape oriented and normally around backpacking/long hikes with some wildlife and portrait mixed in around the people I'm with. I would like to take some pictures in low light, but it isn't a must have. I have a p&s that I can use for video, but...

My old JJC WR-100 radio remote doesn't seem to work with 7DmkII. Works fine with older 40D... I'd like to be able to control the camera remotely, but not via IR. Any suggestions, more modern solutions perhaps? Chinese brands welcome :)

Hi all, I've been looking at improving the overall quality and sharpness of my images. Because of that, earlier this year I invested in a Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8 L IS II, which I am very satisfied with. This lens already gave me a major improvement on quality compared to my previous setup (Canon EOS 60D + Canon EF 28-300 f/3.5-5.6 L IS USM) Now that I am settled with a great lens, I am looking to improve image quality from the camera's side. I have always used cameras with crop sensors (10D >...

A friend has asked me what has happened to this picture taken on a Canon 40D. It has part of the lower grassy area missing and instead has some parts of 2 other pictures covering the missing area. I have had it myself in the past but don't know how to explain what has happened. Any ideas?
