Seriously getting more and more annoyed with my new 70D

Im still struggling with the ergonomics compared to my old 20D, even with the battery grip fitted (I know that it will feel more natural as time goes on)

WiFi is a pain to set up


But even more annoyingly, I have just discovered that my sigma EF-500 DG Super flashgun doest work with it either, now this gun has done sterling service for over 12 years on both a 300D and a 20D without as much as a hiccup

Im not a happy camper -?-?

Yeah I never use the wifi, forgot it had it :-P
I imagine you would prefer the 50D egonomics and it would likely play nicer with your flash. I had it - it is a workhorse body.

I graduated from 600d which i only had a short time, so the 70D was a revelation to me. I can only begin to imagine your frustration. Wifi isn't easy, but I love using it with my smart phone for long exposures ..... find it wonderful for bulb. Perhaps Canon can look at improving the interface for wifi?

trying to add Flickr image on tablet ...... not too sure about this.
Old Russian Manual lens on the 70D. I find focus difficult but LOVE the bokeh

Bees.

Started seeing a few now there is a hint of warmth as the sun grows stronger and brighter.

Here are a couple of mason bees, one of which will perish before too long as the mites have already taken a hold, the other will be OK for now at least...

Last two are nice busy bumbles amongst the apple blossom.

Here's why I am OVER THE MOON with my new 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM. This is one of my first efforts, taken from my back garden. Bit of a crop.

Following on from earlier bee photos, here is a worker bee from a later visit to the garden, followed by 4 images of the wonderful female walnut orb spider residing on the bird table, taken after midnight! The spider work is actually individual images, not cropped, where I just kept inching the Venus lens closer and closer until I eventually got so near that it became intrusive enough to spook her, and she scooted up under the roof area of the bird table and out of sight...
