Canon SL3 Warning - Canon Cripples Hotshoe!


This is unbelievable!



Just a heads up & word of warning, Canon has downgraded the hot shoe mount on the new SL3 so there no central pin! What this means is that nearly all non-Canon flash accessories will not work with this camera, you will have to buy a Canon flash or accessory! Unbelievable!

(And it turns out this is the second camera they have done this with, the first was the T7, 3000D or 4000D depending on where you buy it.)

If you are set on a Canon in this price range, get the M50, which has its center pin!

I have a free tutorial on the SL3 coming if you do end up getting it, but I would try to get something else if possible.
