    It gets better; they actually stopped supporting the 1V before they stopped selling the camera. Kind of makes me glad my little Elan II has no bells and whistles - although that data sync ability looks saaa-weeeet!

    Hope someone can hook you up with that cable, Abram. My curiosity would be be in hyperdrive also!

    Molli is exactly right about my sad little emoticon... And I bought the cable to mess around with trap focus and roll data - which, in writing about it, I haven't really done at all. I'll add that to the other 7,000 new year's resolutions pending...

    I don't understand this from Canon BTW. First they make a proprietary cable for their flagship camera- fair enough though slightly annoying and unnecessary. Then they discontinue that camera without keeping some stock of the accessoires? This is a professional camera, come on.

    Nikon did about the same thing for their F5 Photo secretary.

    I thought it was a typo with someone saying the cable was around $400.... Shockingly it wasn't! This sounds like The price hikes on the original FD to EOS adapter.

    I'm not going to shell out another $400 for a cable. Too bad there's no 3rd party option.
