The DPP that came with my 5d3 installed fine and works. I have not tried remote, as I never use that. I'm on Lion and current as of yesterday.
Definition of frustration: My camera got delivered today. To my friends house, 3500 miles away.
I have to wait a week and a half to pick it up. YUCK.
Just a heads up MasterCard, Visa, and AMEX from the major Cdn banks all charge 2.5% to the best of my knowledge.
Because of that and not wanting to give 2.5% to the credit card companies for nothing when I travel to the U.S. and more importantly when I spend fair amounts of money at B&H, I got a U.S. Dollar Bank of Montreal MasterCard.
It costs $25/year, however, when you spend over $1000/yr on it, they waive the fee, as in it's free.
Since last summer I've placed all of my B&H orders using the card and I don't pay any credit card fees on the USD transactions. All I have to do is pay off my U.S. Dollar MasterCard when the bill comes with U.S. funds. I don't have an account with BMO so I withdraw the U.S. funds from my U.S. account at my bank in the form of a draft and pay then my M/C with it.
I have a BMO U$D card too and U$D account but it still costs money to change money unless you trade in the millions. 2.5-2.9% is pretty standard.
On a CDN 5D3 note, I just went on lunch and picked one up in a kit, I bought the extended 4yr warranty 'cause he knocked $80 off of it and I had him throw in an extra battery. I was not sure if I was going to jump in yet but I did. It might be a slight upgrade from my 40D
Enjoy! An extra battery is a good idea. As my first DSLR that does video, I can only assume the video is a battery drainer.
Camera arrives, open box and start shooting. Hopefully the battery is not completely empty - otherwise, will have another couple beers until battery is ready.
Probably not an issue; lithium-ion batteries are usually shipped with 25-40% life as storing them like that over prolonged periods (such as from manufacture -> sitting on store shelf -> purchase) is the best for their long-term survival. Have fun!
Mine came about 20% charged... which I then promptly worked down to zero... haha
Mine came with 50000% charge on it and I spent about 7.5 hours shooting 6 FPS burst the whole time without running out and there was no noise even at 1,048,576 ISO, then I woke up from the dream and realized I need that $3500 to finish college.
Probably because so many people ordered from the states and saved a lot of money. People not willing to do that will have no problem getting one from a Canadian retailer I suspect.
Wow Camera Canada really is on the ball with this.
Camera Canada has filled all their preorders and have cameras in stock.
The ef 35/2.0 on a crop has a FOV of a 56.7mm lens*, but a perspective of a 35 wide angle lens. Hence the want for an efs-prime.
*1.62 crop factor
Maybe it's not a big enough of a market for Canon to make it profitable. It'd be easier for Sigma and other 3rd party manufacturers because they have lower costs than Canon and they have a potentially larger base (Canon + Nikon crop users).
