Good to know!  I had my first card failure(in at least a decade or so), earlier this month, so I am kind of jumpy on the cards thing right now.  Always bought Lexar and SanDisk, assuming I was safe.  Fortunately, the redundancy plan kicked in.

I could still live with one of each(CF/SD).  A CF failed for the first tyme in a decade, via a 7D.  Butt, the 5DIII/7D combo saved the day.  Fortunately, as an olde person, I retained good legal beagles, and am starting to get checkz from deadbeat clients for whom I did work in Y1 and Y2k.  Gotta see the specs, but my guess is that I am going to be spending money(olde $).

Same happened to me on Tuesday night using the same Lexar card as yours.  Fortunately, I was shooting with two cameras, and retained more than the 30 images I need for the event on camera 2.  This is my first Lexar failure ever from the days of my 40D to present.  A bigg thank you to the authors of all the "build in redundancy" advice I have read on Canon Rumors.

Well played, laddie!

Talk to the primary shooter, and tell him/her that you are going to quote: $10,000(to be split 50/50).  My guess, is that the problem goes away.  The lesson: You now understand the theory of weaseling, and will move forth with that intell in mind, next time you negotiate.

After reviewing the keepers from a Niagara Falls shoot with a 24-105, the distortion was enough to make me want to send the lens over the Falls in a barrel.  Both current 24-70s are very good, even in my hands.

Normally "mail-in" screams at me, "Run Away! Run Away!".  But, this year, I was successful twice almost  Once, hassle free with our Italian monopod friends, and once(plus 4 minutes) with the mighty Canon(rebate to show up in 3-4 weeks per the CS rep).  I suppose, I should not count my rebates before they hatch, but the Canon rep was very professional and forthcoming.  I had my "evil twin bark" at the ready on my iPad, but was happy that it was not needed.  I know it is rare, as a happy customer usually tells no one, but this encounter was truly hassle free.

Yesterday, I got a letter from Canon Rebates telling me that my "UPC" code for a recent lens purchase was invalid.  Today, I called and said: "Whattz up?".  The rep solved my issue in 4 minutes, and admitted that it was a problem on their end.  Well done, Canon!

Well played, Mr. Mackguyver!

Check out the autofocus spec on the Blackmagic Pocket cam.  I seem to recall reading somewhere that it was only "active" with 4/3's lenses.  For the price, it does sound like an intriguing small video cam.

Another positive vote for the SL1, especially for those days when you don't want/need to carry +/- a stone of stuff.

In a few years, we will be sayin: "If you remember 7Ds, you weren't really there!".
