Canon General / Travel charger for Canon LP-E4N battery
« on: March 30, 2014, 04:42:13 PM »
The Canon LC-E4N battery charger that comes as standard equipment with the 1D-X is rather large and difficult to pack for long trips.  Has anyone found a smaller alternative that works safely with LP-E4N batteries?

Canon General / In need of a "walk around" camera
« on: March 06, 2014, 12:38:24 PM »
My wife and I travel on a regular basis and, of course, photography is an important part of our excursions.  At this time I am using a 1D-X, which I absolutely love, but there are times when the weight, appearance and size of this camera make it impractical and/or unsafe to carry.  For those reasons I am looking for another camera or body that would be more practical to take when the 1D-X would not be appropriate.

Image quality is a major consideration.

I sure would appreciate some suggestions on what might be an acceptable addition to my travel equipment.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / New owner's manual
« on: November 05, 2013, 10:01:38 PM »
There have been a number of enhancements made to the 1D-X via firmware updates since I purchased my camera.  At some point it would be nice to have an updated printed copy of the owner's manual that includes these improvements.

Is it possible to order a new and updated manual from Canon?

Software & Accessories / Delkin memory cards
« on: August 29, 2012, 12:04:57 PM »
Are Delkin memory cards the only UDMA 7 CF's manufactured in the USA?  They are certainly more expensive than SanDisk and Lexar (especially if one or the other is on sale).  Just wondering if they are worth the price difference?

B&H quotes the price of a Delkin 32 GB UDMA 7 1000X at $199.99.  A comparable Lexar is on sale for $132.24.

EOS Bodies / 1D X custom WB question
« on: August 13, 2012, 09:44:09 PM »
Once a custom white balance setting has been recorded is there a way to delete it?  I realize it is possible to record a new setting over the old one but I was wondering about clearing the setting all together.

Thanks for the help.

EOS Bodies / What happens to the olympic equipment
« on: August 02, 2012, 12:12:40 PM »
I was amazed at the picture of all the cameras and lens Canon has available for photographers at the Olympics.  Just wondering what will be done with all that nice equipment when the Games are over?  Will it be refurbished and sold as such?

Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Battery Charger LC-E4N for 1D X
« on: July 22, 2012, 02:49:57 PM »
The LC-E4N battery charger for the new 1D X is quite large and requires a separate power cord.  It will charge two LP-E4N batteries at one time as well as measure the battery performance (although the camera will do this as well).

While the LC-E4N works very well and is a nice unit I am concerned about the size of the charger.  As mentioned, this boy is rather large and will be difficult to pack in carry on luggage for air travel.  Sure do wish Canon would offer a "travel model" charger for the 1D X for one battery at a time that would plug directly into an electrical socket without the having to use a power cord (like the charger for a 5D II.

EOS Bodies / 1D X arriving at smaller dealers?
« on: July 05, 2012, 08:18:34 PM »
Anyone received or heard information about any cameras being sent to smaller dealers?  So far the only thing I have seen posted is about shipments from the very large dealers like B&H, Amazon and Adorama.
