I would love a white SL1.  I'm really happy with mine.  It pretty much replaced my M.  Too late now though, not going to buy another body just for a different color.  Besides, if it is UK only, then oh well...

EOS Bodies / Re: UPDATE: EOS M2 Not Coming to North America

I gave the M a shot.  It's a great little camera.  I got frustrated when they announced that the wide angle zoom wasn't coming to the US, nor any other stuff.  I used EF-M lenses with the adapter.  In the end I bought the SL1 when Amazon had it on sale for $350.  Absolutely love that thing.  Small, no adapter or new lenses needed, image quality and AF are better than the M.  Yeah, it's not as small, but it does the job. Heck, you even have back button focusing.

Interesting about the new lens patents.  I bought the EOS M pretty much hoping for the wide angle zoom.  Apparently Canon wasn't interested in selling it to us.  Rumors say the EOS M2 won't be sold here either.  I doubt this new super zoom will make it to the US.  I just bought a SL1 and will be selling my EOS M with kit lens and adapter.  Yeah, I'll miss its size and uniqueness, but at least with the SL1 I can use all the lenses I already have without adapter and performance should be a little better.

I like how the front looks, but the back looks like a microwave...

Lenses / Re: UV Filter damage limitation on 16-35II

Never dropped a lens while changing it.  I'll take the risk.  I don't use filters but do religiously use lens shades.  Bashed quite a few lenses around and the lens shades always saved the day.  By there's no need to argue, we do what we feel is best...

try facebook  ::)

I would like to, as most of the people I want to share pics with are on it, but the quality is horrible.  They turn your JPG's into mush...

And speaking of, Amazon just sent me an email.  Their deal of the day includes Transcend memory cards.  Not sure if that is your thing:

You can also go to www.camelcamelcamel.com and see the price history of all items on Amazon and also set price alerts for Amazon price changes.  Comes in pretty handy.

If anything, in the last two weeks card prices seems to have gone up a bit.  My guess is also that you will see some deals around Thanksgiving and Xmas as usual, but who knows...

So excited, I get to basically pay at least $10 a month to adobe for the rest of my life. No thanks...

PowerShot / Re: Canon Announces the Facebook PowerShot N
« on: August 25, 2013, 10:25:11 PM »
How well has the Powershot N (non Facebook) been selling?  I thought that this model might have a chance just because it's different, maybe some younger kids who like photography might pick it up. But to be honest, the kids love their phones too much, this probably won't have a chance.

I don't understand why Canon doesn't develop a top quality camera module which they can sell to phone manufacturers.  Imagine a iPhone 6 or Samsung S5 with a 15MP Digic6 Canon top quality camera module. Now that might get me to buy a specific phone...

Still waiting for the 11-22, yawn...

Order it from Canada.

No thanks, if Canon won't support their own product lines, I'm not going to give them any more money for it.  I love the M, but I'll switch over to the SL1 and use all my EF-S lenses if they are not fully behind the M.  Or maybe get something completely different.

Gosh, if I changed companies every time a claim for any of my stuff was denied.......

In his defense... about 10 years ago I had a crappy 1.3 megapixel Olympus that I maybe paid $100 for.  Probably less... but still.  And at one point the camera's usb port konks out and I contact Olympus for warranty work.  I explain that I purchased it within a year and I registered it online.  They said that they need the original warranty otherwise they can't do anything for me.  That was the last Olympus product I ever bought and if they actually were good and made cutting edge gear right now, I wouldn't touch it. 

Having said that, now that things are purchased online, it makes it so much easier to keep the receipt.

Agree with what you said, but if I already have a system like Canon which I know how to use as a tool, and a claim for a point and shoot gets denied, I'm not going to change my whole system around because of that.  If he only had one other Canon, I can see that, but not a whole system. And like others said, it's not his camera, so he can't be sure it wasn't accidentally banged around and damaged.  It would have been nice of Canon to say how they found out the camera was damaged, but again, to switch systems because of someone else's point and shoot, nah...

Gosh, if I changed companies every time a claim for any of my stuff was denied.......

The whole thing doesn't make a lot of sense.  Why buy an old generation camera when the 6D really does deliver better pictures.  Also, why buy a 10-22 to match with full frame which has to be converted to fit, and then you still can't go below 13 or 14mm without getting mirror damage and getting blacked out corners.  You could get a 17-40L for similar price and get about the same performance on full frame.  To each their own of course, but I sure don't understand it.
