Have you considered contents insurance? I have my equipment covered on this and it's also insured abroad - apart some places that I wouldn't go anyway.

Well it's not for me, I would have preferred more megapixels. As a stills shooter only, I don't seeing it bringing much to the table above the 1DX2 that I currently use.

I'm still not sure whether or not you received my message re Cyprus.

I have all the equipment mentioned by Neocacher apart from the 90D and I can tell you that it's just not a sensible thing to do.

Well you can't physically piggyback Canon convertors.
I'm not too sure about third party products but even if you could manage it, the hits to both IQ and af would completely rule it out for me.

So, incremental improvement (lol) It's good to see that the new improved A92 is now only four frames per second behind the three year old 1DX2.
They just added what it should have had to start with.

There's also the 400F4 DO mk2 which by all accounts is an impressive lens. I've never used one but I have held one that was attached to a 7D2 and weight wise it was reassuringly light.

60mp is way over the top as well. The camera may well prove to be good but essentially it's designed to trouser the gear heads spare cash.

Hi Mark. Has he possibly altered a scene mode without realising?
It's just possible that the camera has developed a fault. If it has, the good news is that a second hand Canon A410 can be purchased...
