Lenses / Re: Do you keep all your boxes?
« on: September 22, 2014, 04:36:34 AM »
I like to know if you keep all your lens boxes? I can imagine that it's useful to keep the camera box , but do you keep all the other boxes too?
Keep in mind that I am a minimalist ;)

Meanwhile sports / wildlife photographers are quietly pre-ordering. If I was a sports photographer I'd be pretty excited to have the 7D II either as a back up or main camera.

Total agree.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7DII - Did you preorder?

I never preorder. Those who gets a boner for everything new, and have an abundance of money can take the penalty of the higher prices in the beginning. If I buy something I wait until the price level settles.

That would be the last wrench on the right anywhere most of the other parts of the quasi english speaking world :)

Only the yanks could break an entire language....


I have had good luck with GGS screen protectors.  Have it on my 5D2 and had it on my old Rebel.  This is the exact one I have:

No cracks, no issues, and no complaints.

+1 for GGS

Shares in the Japanese camera and office equipment maker Canon have fallen after the firm cut its earnings forecast for this financial year.

Its shares dropped as much as 14% on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.""

Says it all.

I'm not a chairman of the board of a major Japanese corporation, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last  night. That qualifies me as much as anyone else here to comment on this stuff.

Unless you are a significant stock-holder (like a pension / superannuation fund), or a senior executive of Canon, it would be hard to provide a qualified opinion of what the qualities of individuals in leadership roles of Canon should be.

I have posted before, that if you are unhappy with Canon's offerings, you should not whinge about them, rather, do not buy them.

Vote with you wallet! It's by far the most effective management and strategy tool in the market.

Just what I'm doing, Canon don't have an up to date semi-pro 1.6 crop camera so I'll stick with what I have. 
Canon needs a 7d MK II, not every one wants a full frame jobbie.

Cheers Mike

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D Firmware officially announced
« on: June 28, 2012, 08:21:57 AM »
while good news this is not good news for me.  I'm sitting on on my 50D waiting with money in the bank waiting for an upgrade to either the 60D or the 7D.  New firmware for the 7D means no replacement for the 7D.  So now I wait for a 60D replacement or perhaps a cheaper full frame.  I have money to burn here Canon, show me something I want

Same here, I have a 50D and am after a new 7D mkII or very similar. No way am I buying a 3 year old 7D

Over to you Canon.

Nikon manufacturer the lithography systems which Sony use to make there sensors. Does that mean Sony are more reliant on Nikon. Canon make there own lithography systems and sensors.
