    Quick opinions on the EOS3..?

    Hi

    I'm looking at the EOS3 as my return to film camera, just looking for some quick opinions on it..? Am I able to still use it with a sync chord or IR trigger with my studio flashes?

    thanks!

    The EOS3 is a great camera, I have several of my friends that use it for a back up to their 1Vs cameras, quite a capible camera, and yes, there is the ability to use with your IR and Studio gear, you may have to by some different accesories to work with this specific camera, but I am sure you would be happy with it, and no, I don't shoot Canon, I have used Minolta for my whole photographic career.

    I don't really know more than that, but I do know that it has a good rep and the folks I know who have one like it a lot.

    If I was to go out and get a new EOS body the EOS3 would be on the top of my list. The features and the quality is about the best you will get in that price range.

    Okay, I'll have to say that I found the EOS 3 to be a total battery hog. I think I only had it for maybe 4 months and paid more for batteries to put in it than I did film.

    Nice piece of equipment, but do yourself a favor, buy a Nikon F100!

    Cheers
