Im reaching out to anyone who may have ideas or solutions regarding to sudden onset issues with a 40D that had been out of use for a while. First issue once fired up, the top controls wheel slipped rather than engaged gears necessary for controls. Then the auto-flash wouldn't opened the hood on demand. I had to shoot in Auto mode . Occasionally the wheel would engage for one stop and now its locked on ISO 800!  Today I tried to import images to my MAC running Safari OS X E - besides four...

Hello! NOTE: I am a hobbyist photographer. I like street, holiday, and family photos. I'm not looking to shoot 90 frames per second, nor am I looking to photograph a colony of ants from 1000 paces. I'm your every day kinda photo guy. I am currently running a Canon 40D (yes I know, very old), and am looking to upgrade it for something better. I'm not looking to spend more than a couple of hundred £/$. Prior to going digital, for years I used a 35mm Pentax MX film camera with a 50mm lens - I...

Hello all,Back in the hobby after 7 years and have a question or 50.  But lets start with my burning issue.  Looking at the 7D MII as a replacement for my 40D:-( which seems to have been hit by an EMP).  However the inability to link spot metering to the focus point seems insane - I mean what's the point if you can't link to your FP?How does the spot metering work then? I don't really want a D500 but I almost always use spot on wildlife and sports and can't imagine life without it?Thanks for...

Hello everyone.  Daughter (15) getting the photography bug and wanted to surprise her with some gear of her own.  Currently she shoots with my 40d.  I have the following lenses: Canon 85mm 1.8 Canon 70-200 2.8 IS Canon 28-135mm (kit lens) Rokinon 8mm FishEye Thought a good addition for her to use would be the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 lens. Also considered picking her up a couple of prime lenses for same price (EF-S 24mm f/2.8 & the EF 50mm f/1.8) but I'm leaning toward the 10-18mm. Any...

My Canon EF 200/2.8 USM is around 10 years old and recently started overexposing images. After running the same shot through all the f-stops it is clear that the camera exposes correctly at f2.8 and increasingly overexposes the higher the f-stop with f8 already being severely overexposed.  I am also getting occasionally error messages regarding the contacts of the lens but the contacts are clean and not damaged. I have the same issues with this lens on my Canon 80D and older 40D. All my other...

I want to upgrade my 40D, what is my best option for less than $1,000?  I really like the 40D but want something with more pixels for larger, crisper prints.

Hey folks!So im looking to upgrade my 40D to the 6D as i do a lot of concert photography, but i also do a lot of model photography on the side. Can anyone tell me if i can use HSS on the 6d with a Canon 580EXII flash used off camera, housed within a softbox and wirelessly triggered? I only ask as I would like to have the freedom of being able to shoot at faster shutter speeds and not rely on stopping down my aperture to darken the image, which in turn means i lose the ability to through the...

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...
