Thanks for the feedback, Cid. Which browser are you using? In general, apart some glitches when I launched the site, I did not receive complains about the speed. Looking forward to hearing from others!  ;)

(way) too much js; 1+ sec load times for some

there's also a lot of other calls going on in the back-end that could be avoided; what kind of service do you have installed?

TAXES

Yep, the Union of Soviet Socialist Connecticut just implemented this as well.

We have house taxes, car taxes, internet sales tax, but can we have an education system with direction? Nope.

Surprised it took CR so long to post this, it was there a while . . . glad it's sold out; explaining the difference with my current gear to my wife is a killer.

Canon General / Re: So what have we bought this Black... Er, Weekend?
« on: December 01, 2013, 09:00:51 AM »
Someone hacked a local business and compromised both of our credit cards, so they are cancelled.  I'm buying things the old fashioned way with cash. 
 
I am meeting a guy this morning to buy a Lee Big Stopper after he got two by ordering from different places and waiting for months.

Apparently 'tis the season for CC fraud.

My debit card got compromised in the last 8 hours.  Fortunately, the purchases were so uncharacteristic that they called me right away.  And sent a text. And called the other phone. And an e-mail. At least they're on top of things ;D

Sounds like my wife when I accidentally blow by a cop.  :-\

To be fair, my magic rangefinder WAS glowing blue, so I saw it coming.

Add Amazon to that list.  Back when I first bought my 60D, they randomly slapped a signature requirement on it. What the Heck?

Did I have to sign for the same-priced bathtub I ordered? No.  How about the pricey lens I bought? Nope.

These places all get weird and random once and a while.

Anyone know what the CLP price is on the refurbed mark 3 now?

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Deal: Canon EF-S 10-22 $529 at B&H Photo
« on: November 21, 2013, 01:54:11 PM »
Wow…that's a good price!



I guess I should apologize to all those people I told that the good EF-S lenses (17-55, 10-22, 15-85) hold their value well. I paid $720 for mine in January 2010, sold it after getting the 16-35 II ~10 months later, along with the EW83E lens hood, for $700 - a loss of $50 which isn't bad for what was effectively a long-term rental.


Yea, still been meaning to list this and my other two EF-S lenses. D'oh.

Why would this annoy you? I just grin and say "beginner's luck".  ;D

Better yet, I'm using primes half the time and you should see people's eyes glaze over as they try to talk gear with me and I try to sell them on giving up zooms.   ::)

--------------------

Want to know my pet peeve? People asking to see the shot (like my wife).

Listen, I know if I got it or not, what is a 3" screen going to tell you?

EOS Bodies / Re: Is Canon about to pull the plug on the 60D?
« on: November 18, 2013, 01:51:31 PM »
Yes, Canon has likely ended production of the 60D if it's in short supply in Asia, given the age of the camera. Plenty available on this side of the pond if you want one but I would just buy the 70D instead.
+1

They're so cheap used here, I decided to keep mine on hand since my wife clings to the little picture things like a life-raft when borrowing my camera.

If she used the 7D, her head would assplode.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS Rebel SL1/Kiss X7 in White
« on: November 14, 2013, 04:16:30 PM »
That's the nicest looking Canon body I've seen in a long time, & that white 40mm is giving me serious lens envy.

See, that's what I don't get . . . I think it looks fine; I wouldn't mind a 5Dmk3 in that color . . . maybe even prefer it (as long as it's the same build quality)

Okay, I'll ask:
Why are cameras black, anyhow?

Lenses / Re: Same ole, same ole' Filters vs no filters...
« on: November 14, 2013, 01:19:43 PM »
I feel like we have this filter debate about once a month and it goes around in circles with no conclusion. Ever.

Not quite monthly, but it seems that way.  Hell, at least it's been more civilized and productive than the last three Canon announcement threads.
