    Canon 7DMKII batteries

    Is your grip a genuine Canon or an aftermarket? as some are known to have battery drain issues. I managed to take over 2600 shots at Flying Legends using 1 original Canon battery & 1 ExPro which still had 50% left - (not using grip) The reason I asked is that I have just bought a Canon BG-E16...

    D3300 with Sigma DG 120-400

    I can only suggest that you do contact them and tell them that your lens is one listed in the recall and see what they have to say.

    Photo editing hardware.

    That's how I had my iMac setup pretty easy to do and makes quite a difference to overall system speed. Gone back to a Windows PC now though as I like tinkering too much.

    Canon 7D upgrade... £500 - £600 budget

    80D v 7D MKii

    I've had both, as Geoff said above 80d is better for low light but 7D II has much better auto focus and feels much better to use imo. If buying new it might be worth waiting to see what Canon release later in the year as its rumoured that a 80d/7D II replacement is on the cards which may have a...

    The swivel and touch screen was very nice. Hopefully the 7d mkiii will have these features.

    Canon EOS 80d Owners Thread

    I had an 80d for a couple of years but upgraded to a 7D mkii for the 2018 airshow season and I get on much better with this, I find it easier to handle being larger than the 80d and my keeper rate has increased, the autofocus just seems to stay locked on better with the 7d mkii.

    Another vote for MPB.com

    I sold my 80d body to MPB and described it as excellent, they sent me an email stating they had upgraded the condition to mint so I got an extra £25 which was most welcome. :cool:

    Cokin Z-Pro Grad ND kit - identical kits, slightly different branding, wildly different price!

    I bought a 100mm filter holder from ebay, decent quality and works well with my Lee Super Stopper. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-High-Quality-Filter-Holder-for-100mm-wide-Lee-filter-system/132774716380?hash=item1ee9fd63dc:g:YEIAAOSwiIxaGYWy

    Cokin Pro Z Filters

    Just looking into the Cokin Z series myself and will probably end up getting a set of the ND's and the ND Grads to try as I am going to North Yorkshire in Sept and want to experiment with filters. If I get on ok I may well invest in a set of Lee's.

    Canon EOS 80d Owners Thread

    AI Focus will automatically change the focusing system between One Shot and AI Servo but this is not as good as selecting the correct focus system yourself, so if you're shooting a static subject choose One Shot and if your subject is moving choose AI Servo.
