I guess they are just call center people instead of technicians like some companies have.

Thank you for that perspective strange bunch of people not knowing how to treat a group of technically minded artists like ourselves.

Im going to drill down on this further.

The CPS people did not know what or how the AF, the limiters and the IS system did in the lens or how it affected it.

THey literally spoke as if they were dealing with Powershot people all day and this was CPS not canon general.


Your problem is cosmetic but still very real I would suggest anyone send stuff off to Video their GEAR first and take.... a pictures of it from all angles.

Start with an agent, drill down hard to a supervisor remember names and what was said be polite but they will try to lessen their responsibility.

My 70-200 mk2 had a slight hiccup at the 1.2 m - 2.5m AF , estimate was 250$ i was like really but the lens was 3 years old OK I guess, then I got a revised estimate 1275$ replacing everything except the glass i was like forget it the things is crispy just wanted it to be back to spec. I said return it don't do a thing. I get it back the day of a couples shoot pop it out of the box and guess what its literally has NO AF an its feels grindy and clicky when turning the Focus ring and at times the ring does not turn the  distance meter inside. They literally pulled apart i'm guessing and THREW it back together when i rejected the  REPLACE 4 parts.

I get a rude female agent blaming cause i rejected the service I'm like  lady I was working  at 95% capacity now its at barely 25%, missing focus not hunting not working, sounds like its been thrown back together.

I call back I get a agent that sat next to that one similar but less rude and neutral to my plight, i.e you broke my lens.

3rd i get the supervisor who says for 700$ they will return it to spec and 6 month warranty not bad but im still on the fence cause it was never this bad. This is CPS canada not usa.

let me know how it goes for you.

More than happy with usage, but for a bigger use than was intended for the photos is what this seems to HINT at.

Come shoot some photos of the event paid simple work.....oh yeah those photos now done we are going to use to promote our company and revamp our complete look. print them and make them part of 3 kinds of media.

this can and does happen, nothing was signed, im happy to work with folks no need to be all lawyerly just hope they realize what is law and id like to see or hear peoples ideas on CANADIAN law? :) thank you

Canon General / PHOTO RIGHTS IN CANADA (RECENT)
« on: June 19, 2013, 09:46:11 AM »
I get a message after a event shoot...

"Also, my understanding is that when we hire a photographer for an event, photo shoot etc. that we own the rights to the photos, as we may want to use them in promotional materials etc. "


I'm here in Canada let me know I thought we don't loose our rights unless we actively give them away. I thought in general its used in good faith and if they would want to go on long runs of print material or the image becomes Iconic for them maybe talk about rights/ a per usage cost.

thanks folks for wading in.
