EOS Bodies / Canon Canada 7D Mark II Presale Promotion
« on: September 16, 2014, 04:09:01 PM »
Seems like a good deal. Buy a 7D II within the presale time for $1,799 CDN and then get an EF 24-70 f/4.0 IS L for $399 CDN plus a waterproof jacket, trinket, and a Canon smartphone/tablet skin.

Technical Support / OMG Cookie Hell on Canon Rumors
« on: June 12, 2014, 03:58:23 PM »
So I decided to disable cookies in my browser and prompt me to when third parties want to install cookies. Just so I can see how various websites want to infiltrate my computer. Wow, CanonRumors is one of the worst. Try it sometimes. Cookies Cookies everywhere.

EOS-M / EOS-M Annoyances
« on: July 26, 2013, 01:41:48 PM »
So I threw my new M in my pocket to walk around. Then I noticed something growing in my pocket (no not that) and it was getting warm. I take out the camera and it was on. So it turns out it is fairly easy to hit the on/off button in my pocket. I also noticed that when off the Play button activates the lens in and out one time. So that button is annoying too.

I don't know if I will be able to pocket this thing.

EOS-M / BH Photo EOS M Kit
« on: July 25, 2013, 11:29:26 AM »
Nice surprise. My $299 BH special came in..... but it is the 22 STM AND the 90EX flash kit. Thanks BH. I don't think I would have bot the flash separately but I may try it out and worst case sell it.

Third Party Manufacturers / Samsung 3D still and video camera

I guess naming anything Canon 3D without actual 3D pictures would be very confusing.

Couldn't help but pick up one as a second body. Here in Canada they are now $1,699. I see the US price is around $1,899.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D battery overvoltage
« on: August 03, 2012, 06:05:10 PM »
Since the 1 series cameras have their battery voltage at 11.1 and the 5 series at 7.2, has anyone been crazy enough to say rewire a 5D grip to alter the batteries in series and overvolt the camera for faster framerates?

Lenses / Lens AF Calibration Question
« on: March 26, 2012, 05:28:59 PM »
Normally when I buy a lens I test for AF focus myself and not surprizingly, I find that in all cases the AF is off at least a bit and sometimes quite a bit more (as in the case of a recent purchase of a 100 L macro). Normally I dont use MF adjustment and send it in to Canon for free calibration - thinking that the lens is at fault not the body. In all cases it comes back with near perfect focus on my 5d Mark II body - so I know at least my current body is not the problem. I know some of you may suggest sending lens and body in for calibration, but I would have thought that might not be the best idea in case Canon just uses the MF adjustment instead of adjusting the lens itself. In that case a second body purchase could introduce AF problems again.
