Congratulations on the keeper; your wife.
Oh and you'll love the camera, simply awesome! Get started reading about the functions and the manual on the Internet, lots of neato burrito stuff. :)
Advance reading of manual on the internet, Excellent idea!!  I'll have to do the same thing, my new 5D Mark III just shipped this morning!! My Christmas starts on Saturday!!   ;D

A nice LV bag will do nicely to compensate her gift.  :)  Take her someplace nice and give her an evening she'll never forget.  Don't forget to bring your camera.  It will be nice for some low-light pics with her.  :)  HOHOHO!

My wife got me one year. Bought me when of those lens cups. They even come in a canon box. Well sorta but for that first 8 seconds it really looks like a 24-105. I was clever but also kinda sad. Hah

Somehow I am feeling the urge to laugh and to cry at the same time.
What a dissonance...
i just read my post and it looks like i barely speak english. Thats what i get for using my phone when i first wake up. Yeah i was so disappointed. Not in my wife obviously she is amazing and very sneaky with her gift giving. I was just so sure for the first 8 seconds and then my spirit just dropped! ha i am still hoping to get her back this year!

As one grows up, the excitement of Christmas diminishes... you know what your getting (socks) and it's focus drifts away from the presents and more towards spending time with your family and friends...

But this year...  this year....  i can not wait for Christmas morning!!!!!  I feel like a 10 year old kid eagerly anticipating the nintendo shaped box under the tree... Why am i so excited this year?...  well let me tell you! While finding a hiding spot for my wifes present at home (macbook air), i was rummaging at the back of the guest room closet to see if there was space there, i found a 5d mkiii kit!!!! :D soooo....  it is there, 15ft from where i sleep....  and i can't touch it until the morning of the 25th! Hence the excitement... I just hope she charges the battery for me! :)

Anyway, this has no real relevance to anyone, but since i don't have many photo-buddies (recently moved to india) here so i needed to share...  now i need to act all nonchalant so my wife doesn't find out...

I hope you all have a great Christmas season and a happy new year...  :)


How do you know it's for you? Just saying ;-)

-> carefully open the box
-> take out the original camera

-> buy a disposable camera, and label it "5DMkIII" with a black marker
-> put it into the box and seal

now, when it comes to unwrapping, quickly(!) pull out the 5D to frame the expression of her face.
Great photography is all about being well prepared  ;)

My wife can't tell the 5DmkII from the 60D, and she's used the 60D on a trip  :o

Or you could go buy a battery. You need a spare anyway...

Btw, may be she bought herself the gift! ;)

Merry clickings!

After the tragedy in the US, I am refraining from using the word "shoot". Sad episode...

This is the absolutely BEST and MOST HILARIOUS post I've ever read on one of the photog fora...Merry Christmas, adhocphotographer...well as I said in the days before the 5D3s official announcement: "there is joy in the waiting..."  8) And be aware: The 5D3 is an awesome camera! Bought one in August, payed the premium but it was worth every swiss franc! Took some 2.4k photos to date.

good plan... on it! ;)
