    Gracias por la clarividencia del artículo, muy interesante. No entiendo como CANON nos suprime el sincro X de toda la vida, una vez más. Me acuerdo que mi primera réflex fue una Canon Ftb de los años 70 del siglo pasado, y bien que lo tenía. La Canon T90 tampoco lo tenía, INCREIBLE – me lo tuvieron que poner-. Y ya bien entrados en el siglo XXI, veo con tristeza la Canon 6D2. Seguimos en la misma línea anti sentido común. Como es posible???.

    Thanks for the clairvoyance of the article, very interesting. I do not understand how CANON suppresses the synchrox of our whole life, once again. I remember that my first SLR was a Canon Ftb from the 70’s of the last century, and well I had it. The Canon T90 did not have it either, incredible – they had to put it on. And well into the 21st century, I see with sadness the Canon 6D2. We follow the same line of common sense. How is it possible???.
