You have battery covers for 12 year old batteries that are long gone?...I have not saved the covers from all those dozens of batteries I've owned...Curious, why do you not keep the battery covers? Don't you use them to indicate charged or discharged and of course for protection?
Just got mine today.. Rochester NY. They had shipped it out late Wednesday night I guessActually, you do not need a receipt if you register it. It was a gift and grandma did not put the receipt in the package. Canon will cover it, since its a USA model, and it was registered.
Mine did come with warranty card and I registered it with Canon USA. They are US models which is nice.
Wow the thing knows how to focus in low light.. Lot to learn though. I think there are more menu screens then its max iso
It doesn't mean you are under Canon 1yr warranty, unless you can show the sale receipt from an authorizeed dealer - in this case BigValue is not.
Enjoy your new toy
I have Canon batteries going back to the D30 that are 12 years old. I have not saved the covers from all those dozens of batteries I've owned, but the recent ones from the last 4 years are all the same yellow color. The older batteries might have had a different color cover, I know that the shell color of the BP-511 batteries changed several years ago.Canon has changed packaging as well as whats printed on the batteryabout once a year. Three of my four are slightly different, each is a different age. The new batteries I bought form Adorama and Amazon (not a third party) have the correct hologram. The other two came with my 5D MK II and later 7D.
The original 5D Battery says made in Japan, then I have a made in China, and one that is part Japanese and part Chinese. One has a date on it, but the others are older and do not.
Do they all have the same colour plastic covers?
Resurrecting this a bit....I just got my 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, and WOW...it is heavy.
I'm thinking a long day at a fest (and we have tons of them down here in New Orleans) I would think a good monopod would be good to have when lugging this lens and my 5D3 around all day.
Any other recommendations? I have a manfroto tripod and the quick release plate for that...would anyone recommend a good manfroto monopod model, that might work with the same plate system?
Thanks in advance,
Yeah make sure you mount that 70-200 on the tripod and not the body, you dont want all that weight pulling on the mount.
