    And I thought that I had too many cameras! I am not in the same league as you, Craig. But, whatever makes you happy.

    A little Canon stuff

    Buy a couple more at that price, and throw them in your camera. At least one will be close to hand.


    I thought I had too many. So long as you are happy with your collection, or is it a work in progress and it kind of grows from time to time?

    I am in the same boat but can not afford to buy the lens that suit the camera but find using old film lenses and a adapter a way around the problem

    My latest purchase was 5 Practica cameras from Vinnies, 4 Nova1s, 2 working and 2 needing to refurbished and the 5th is a later model that needs a clip on the battery cover. This later modes is a different mount than the earlier models and I have to research the lenses that fit it or if there is a adapter available. These German cameras are built like a brick dunny and take M42 mount lenses. One of my photography student is trying one out at the moment.

    Gary, on my 60D there is a 2 second delay in the Drive Mode settings, I am finding I am using this more on the 60D for slow shutter use than the remote recently, I don't have to search for the remote in my bag but I still use in on my other cameras.
    I also use Yongnuo wireless Flash transmitters and receivers, they can be used as a remote control. These little transmitters, made in China, are cheap but work quite well in both roles.

    A lot of the cameras I get are in need of maintenance and repair, I was a Mechanical Fitter by trade and do not have a lady of the house to curtail my interest and spending.
