Don't worry,I'll be moderate in taking pictures...! Sometimes my fiancee steal my camera and start taking pictures like a maniac (more than I!).

I'll buy a cf when needed,aaaaand...yes, one more cf is the right suggestion..!


Eddie,


Will check for you (most stuff I get my info from is in Japanese...) but will see if I can find something usefull in English...
Sorry for maybe making you feel a bit worried, but the world is ignoring what is going on here, and that is sad!

Anyways, you won't die of eating one or two things contaminated, it just boils down to not eating bad stuff for two weeks in a row!

In regards to your stay here: do not shop at 'Bicamera and / or Yodobashi' cause they have this totally weird points system but forget to mention that thise points are actually extra money YOU payed on top of the normal price which they ever so genorously give you back during your next transaction... Pay a visit to MAPCAMERA, in Shinjuku, where they charge you normal prices for things new and where they have MILLIONS of SECONDHAND bargains, enough stuff to seduce you to part with your money and ruin your honeymoon (angry spouce  ;)

Anyway, if you would like any other input (about photography) I would be happy to assist you!

Ok, thanks in advice!

About shop advice: thanks a lot!!! I think I am going to buy all here in my town and nothing in Japan... I think! :D

Did anyone know were can I RENT some lenses in Japan or Hawaii...? Is it possible for tourists from other countries?

UPDATE:
Do I need to bring the bill from the shop where I bought my camera to demonstrate that it's mine?

Hello CanonRumors!

I have booked my honeymoon from 20th sept 14 to 15th oct 14: first week Tokyo, second week Takayama, Nara, Osaka and Kyoto. Then we travel back to Honolulu and Maui.

Any advice while travelling by plane? I know that in US border I have to charge all my batteries (laptop, camera, tablet etc) in order to demonstrate it's not a "black device"... anything else? Any documentation or declaration before checkin?

Thanks a lot!

(I'll bring a 7d + 2 batteries and charger, 4 CF, 15-85 and 70-200)

anyone have a working link to info on this? I have searched canons site, their estore site, google, and no mention of a "canon club canada" or a "canada eos club canon" anywhere, some google results but they dont lead to the same page on the canon site that the google excerpt is from.

Infact it seems to be removed..... Booh!

Anyway, Crumpler answered me: the strap is definitely out of production and not  even remotely in stock. Exist only one  that is smaller and with a smaller logo...

If you want to buy one of my canvas/fabric 1D X bags let me know. Though I do not have the Canon black box it came in as I threw that away.

As for what I got with the 1D X club (which I still do not fully understand) it was a very limited miniature camera (not 1D X) which is why it has pride of place on my desk at work. I am not willing to sell that (unless we are talking good money) as I quite like it, and I know that very few people have it. BTW I kept the black box for that, and it comes in its own case too.

I have other stuff too if you are interested, including a 4GB 1D X usb stick/thing.

*PM!*

I sow the mignature of 1D-X...cool!

Regarding the RED EOS Crumpler strap, I am at the point that it was produced for a limited time in 2011 *only* for the Canon Club Canada. Now out of production, treated like a relic on Ebay by the Enthusiasts... what a pity!

Canon, if you hear me....why won't you adopt this kind of camera straps like optional straps for the camera..?!
 ;D ;D ;D

That's right.  You must live in Canada.  To join CPS USA, you must be in USA.  Canon is divided up into different business units around the world that are separate financially and each has its own rules and requirements.

Right.... Becouse of I am italian and there is no "Canon Club Italia" -or something better than only an unofficial forum- I can't get this kind of specific advatages. I am not interested in the camera strap only!
Hope to find something on ebay....

Seriously?!! I am definitely going to start going through all the freebies I get from Canon now.
Yes, I swear!
The bid ended at 3:00AM, I woke up at 2:45 and it was at 40$. Ended at 108$.

What did you get with 1D-X Club?

I hope I'll get a 1D-X in my future... out of budget for me now!

And the answer is..........nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnope. I am not from Canada and they won't ship the "product" out of Canada.
I see it on ebay and it was sold for 108$ 2 days ago with a big rush for the offers.....................................

Trying to contact Crumpler: no answers for now.

It's a shame because it is a nice product, probably a bit too showy.

Assuming that any of your answers are correct and appreciated, can I have the simple one to my question: is that strap the one you get with the subscription to Canon EOS Canada or not?

Thanks!

Yes, I read down the pace bit I am noto shure that is the same strap.

I know what I am doing, anyway!

So, do I get that canon strap?
Thanks

Just read further down the page.  Its a lot easier than having to get posts from people with absolutely no idea of what you are asking.

As I expected  ;D

I was just wandering if the "strap" they send you was this one....





Hi Eddie.
No idea but my guess, a load of stuff you haven't already got because you don't need it, or stuff you already have so you don't need it.  ;D
Value does not have a price, it is subjective at best! Should have said cost? Considerably less than the membership fee!  ::)

Cheers Graham.

Dear all of you,
does anyone of you joined the Canon Club Canada?

As I can see on the page, they will send you a "welcome kit".... can't figure what is inside it... anyone??

Thanks
