Canon DSLRs

by len089 / April 2, 2006 7:12 AM PDT

Am wondering if anyone knows if Canon makes any DSLRs that will accept my older SLR non-auto/electronic focus lenses? Which models if any are they? I want to upgrade but lenses can get expensive and my old ones a prefectly fine.

Thanks for answering my question. Unfortunately, all my lenses are not EOS mount. They are the older bayonet mount. That's bad news for me.

you must have the old Canon FD lenses, instead of Canon EF or EF-S lenses. Therefore, those old lenses won't work on new Canon DSLR. It's time to switch to the newer EF lense model or other lense brands, such as Sigma, Tamron, or Tokina that are compatible to Canon DSLR. Good luck.

The DSLR market is wide open to you. Maybe you could get some money for them on e-bay. The only camera maker that doesn't change mounts with the seasons is Nikon. Besides, the new Canon lenses are pretty good if you get the right one and now they have IS for the right price.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
