"...After the first 12 months, we will automatically renew your contract based on the current price of the offering"
In Germany it's a little more expensive at 12,29 €/mth, limited to 12 months also.
A little more expensive? 12.29 is about $16.65 or 66% more expensive than the US version.
Yay for geographic price discrimination and that because you're not in the USA, you'll accept it and pay more.
Just say NO!
Until now I've laid of getting a better monitor for buying actual camera gear, but I've reached the point of annoyance with my cheap laptop screen (no icc profile, very limited color space) where I fear a purchase is inevitable. When processing slight color nuances of the autumn I'm not able to get satisfactory results, the wb (blue/orange) or tint (cyan/magenta) is always somewhat off w/o a proper color workflow.
I admit I didn't put much research into because the choices seem too confusing to me: What monitor type should I get for a working camera-screen icc workflow?
It would be great to hear some experiences or be pointed to some reviews - it must not be the pro lcd from your dreams which is outside my budget, I'd like to learn about the ~17"-19" "cheapest working solution". Thanks!
I've purchased three refurbished lenses. I am not a fanatic about calibration however, so I'm probably not the one to ask, but I've found them to be identical quality to lenses I've bought new.While its possible that new lenses are reboxed and sold, the quantity of lenses that are sold is very large, Canon might produce a million a year of some lens models. If even 1% of those are returned, that's 10,000 lenses.
I'm not sure, however, that this statement is correct: "Canon refurb stock to my knowledge is generally customer returns in the 30 day period or dealer demos."
I've always been curious as to where the stock really comes from, since I can't imagine that they can all come from customer and dealer returns. Especially because, during sales it's not uncommon for Canon to "restock" the store. How can you "restock" a store with returned items on such a consistent basis?
Now that CanonPriceWatch carries the number available in stock for each lens, I find this even more unlikely. For example, they currently show more than 500 40mm pancake lenses in stock. I seriously doubt that the majority of those lenses would be from customer returns. I strongly suspect that many of these lenses were never sold or spent any time out in the "wild."
I agree 100 percent with Winglet about lever locks over twist locks. If you do not know what this means, most Gitzos (and a few other brand models) use twist locks to release the leg sections for opening or closing. This means you twist a circular collar several times to open and again to lock. This is a major pain IMO and I do not understand how anyone puts up with them. A lot of pros and advanced photographers use Gitzo, so maybe I am just wierd about it, but it twist locks would drive me nuts. Definitely try before you buy.
Most Manfrotto (and a lot of other brand models) use a flip lock. Flip a lever once to open and again to close. So much faster and easier.
I switched from a Manfrotto aluminum to the same class of Manfrotto carbon fiber a couple years ago and it was one of the best photo purchases ever. Go carbon fiber if you can afford it. I use a Manfrotto ball head also - with their proprietary plates - and it is no issue for me. Unless you plan on sharing tripods with a group of people, why do you need a "universal" mounting plate??? (However, Arca Swiss is the industry standard so I am sure they are quite good and perhaps better than my Manfrotto head).
