Canon General / Canon USA shop direct and canon loyalty program help
« on: September 12, 2012, 09:36:50 AM »
Does anyone know if you pay taxes and shipping from canon shop direct? I live in Minnesota. Another question is how do I qualify for canon loyalty program or take advantage of it? Ive never really used the canon USA site much and I'm pretty lost on the page. Thank you!

So the rebate is 200 off the 2999 msrp? Bah that's lame but whatever I guess it's an ok deal still.

I've been on the fence about buying a 5d2 kit and watching the prices but I just checked tonight and it's up 100 dollars matching my local vendors and last week everyone online had it for 2699. Does this mean something new might show up or stock is dwindling down and so price goes up? It's starting to not seem like a good deal to me anymore.

How do you take that photo? Flash and what camera settings? I really like the photo.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Too good to be true?
« on: September 08, 2012, 12:50:29 AM »
Hey everyone, came across this ad on craigslist tonight and thought is this too good to be true?
http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/pho/3232109329.html
I have a very good condition canon 50d with a grip and this guy is open to trading for one according to his ad. Provided its not a scam and the camera works would it be dumb to pass on this trade?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Anyone buy a new 5D3 on eBay?
« on: September 06, 2012, 12:09:38 PM »
Well thanks for the input. I don't see beach camera having any deals currently. And I'm waiting for a craigslist deal to happen and if it goes as planned I will buy the 5d3 on eBay and see what happens. I don't think it will bother me to have a new 5d3 that used to be a kit so long as the camera is actually new.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Anyone buy a new 5D3 on eBay?
« on: September 06, 2012, 10:39:56 AM »
I was looking for 5D3's at google shopping and found
http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewitem?itemId=150890960084&index=1&nav=SEARCH&nid=44815022475
It states it's a kit that had the lens removed, so is this a good deal and will I still have a warranty? eBay always makes me somewhat nervous but 400 bucks less is a good deal. So please anyone who has bought a new camera from eBay and maybe even from this store tell me is it safe?

EOS Bodies / Re: Announcements Before Photokina

We should be getting leaks in two or three days, as more and more people become aware of the details.  It is true that new lens announcements are kept quiter than announcements for bodies, just not as many leaks.

I want the leaks now! I'm so on the fence about a 5d3 or 5d2! Give me something new canon please!

I think one thing people are forgetting is that for a year after a body is released, its price is very high...like, 50% higher than they sell for right now. Do you really believe the new 7D is going to be worth $17-1800+ for the body when the current one can be had for $1100?

so you prefer not to have any new stuff... i see.   ;D

i have 2000 euro waiting for a new backup FF body.
no way i buy another 5D MK2 and the 5D MK3 is to expensiv for a backup body.

So you too wanted something better than the 5D2 but cheaper than a 5D3?

If a new full frame isn't a very good possibility of being announced then I suppose a 5D2 is in my near future. I was kinda hoping a new EOS body would show and perhaps drop the prices a bit on 5d3 and 5d2.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Is digital still that new of a technology?
« on: August 29, 2012, 11:28:54 AM »
So it sounds like its a bit of marketing, price and technology. I will sit and wait another 12 years and see what cameras become and how outdated even a 5D3 would be considered. Was the EOS 1V rather expensive for its day? 12 years ago I was young and had a 2 megapixel Olympus that I thought was the best camera ever, I didn't know anything about film.

Ok Im quite confused, I know digital is the new thing and film is kind of almost vintage, but seriously why couldnt they just turn this camera digital?
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/194453-USA/Canon_2043A005_EOS_1V_Camera_Body.html
I get the convenience of digital but this 1V film camera sure seems like one hell of a camera! Maybe I am too young and naive about film vs digital or however you want to call it. So is it really just a convenience factor that determines the price and features of the current SLRs because 1V has 45 point AF and can do 10FPS what the hell mr 5D2 or even 5D3 for that matter! I would trade the 5D3's 61 point AF and 6fps for the 1V's 45 point and 10fps, how cool would that be? Or is it more like how long did it take to get where the 1V is vs how long will it take for digital to catch up? I guess its only been 7 years since the 5Dc was announced I suppose its time to look up how long canon had been making auto-focus film cameras!
