Welcome aboard!

If those are vintage flashes, make sure the voltage is OK for the new DSLRs.

And a welcome from another northerner - this one in Norway.

As hobbies go photography doesn't have to be that expensive. It can be, certainly, but shopping wisely can keep the cost quite reasonable.

I thought at first that you were located somewhere near the Nunavut !
Nonetheless, Calgary can be weird with its ever-changing weather and, like the legend says: "If you don't like the weather in Calgary, wait a few minutes and it'll change ! "
I used to live there for a while and my daughter is presently working in Calgary.

I much prefer Nova Scotia ... except for its terrible winters!

Cheers and enjoy the forum.
