That's what Tunefink says to Buck & I. I know, I know. "We Canon Guys" are a different lot. I cannot disagree..."BUT"...just in case this may pose as "new news" to some of you, let me explain.
I got the call from my photo shop 2 days ago. (Yes: We "Canon Guys" have our very own camera shop). After being on the waiting list (with a sizable deposit) for over 90 days, my new camera had arrived. I was "told" (grain of salt) by my salesman that this is the first one in Florida. I have no idea of knowing if this is even remotely close to the truth, but I brought this bad boy home today!
It is so new that I had to buy a lens adapter to fit my "L" series lenses to this body. In the future this new concept will have a small, expensive set of lenses, model specific to this body. At any rate: Canon's new "EOS R" is the 1st, full frame> digital> mirrorless DSLR! It's quite a bit lighter than my Canon EOS 5, MK. II yet has less distortion ratio, probably because of the mirrorless feature.
I'll take it for a test drive in a day or so and let you know my opinions about it but I think it will work quite well.
...to be continued...
Capt. Chris

By the way, "expensive" is a relative term. My meaning of that word is: A crap-lot load of money for a workin' redneck like me! Some of our expert (European, for instance) photographers that post on this forum have gear that costs more than my truck!
...Just sayin...Capt. Chris
PS: I wish some of you would re-post your set-ups with an explanation for members who are trying to accomplish what you "good guys" take for granted.
Thanks, Capt. Chris

Snake,
I was referring to some of our European forum members (They know who they are) who do this photography professionally. "They" spend serious $$$ on equipment. My rig is going to pan out at about $6,000.00. Some of the afore-mentioned guys pay that (or more) for just one of their lenses!!
Best, Capt. Chris

Rocky,

Is yours a single stroke or a double-stroke?

Mine's a double-stroke.

I think Buck "might mean" (although it's hard to try & figure out what Buck means) does the film-advance winder require on full stroke or a 2nd.
Best, Capt. Chris
