Things to Do while waiting for your new 5DmIII
« on: March 19, 2012, 02:45:08 PM »
As a public service to those who are constantly refreshing CanonRumors.com and other photo sites while waiting for your new 5DmIII to arrive, here is a list of things to do to stay productive....

1) Clean-up LR folders by removing old shots you'll never use.
2) Work on your Photography website.
3) Visit friends and family; annoy them by turning conversation into one about your new expensive camera.
4) Attempt to get anything done at your office.
5) Watch the Weather Channel for hours.

Your Turn -

6) Log onto CR Forums and bash the some of the 5DIII's features, or repeat the bashing put forth by others, and issue hollow threads to buy a D800...  ::)

8) Run through all of the menu options that  you have either turned on or off on your 5D2 and envision if you might do the same on the new 5D3 after reading through the 5D3 manual 2 or 3 times.

9)Talk to your wife for 5 minutes to show that you are "really interested" in her day

10) : save up money, so you may actually be able to buy it in a year or two.

I'm getting clear of all my earlier cam's footage and stills because I don't think I'm going to want to develop/edit any of it when I see what the 5D3 can do.

1. Reading the 5D III manual and clean my lenses. Just to get ready - we will go Big Bear Moutain in California to test out 5D III.

PS...I told my wife that I bought a camera but didn't tell the model(which she doesn't care)

as always she asked "how much?" >:(

I told her half of $3500 ::) Also, I told her I'm going to sell my 60D and use that money to pay for half of the half ::)

The wife approved ;D ;D ;D

NOW...I have to use my $1750 from my bonus bank to pay for other half

Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 16-35L f4 IS -- 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 200L f2 IS -- 400L f2.8 IS II

11.) Sell. Sell anything and everything not bolted down and that does not take a picture.  I'm listing my older 7D and 60D bodies on CL along with a 200 f2.8L lens... and camera bags.  Got too many of those darn bags that only take up room in the vault. ??? ;D
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.

The 5D3 is a nice camera, but while I wait for mine to arrive I plan to spend my time taking pictures with the cameras I have.

Your 7D and 60D bodies don't take pictures? What do you expect to get for them when you sell them?

14. figure out how you're finally going to fence all that Nikon gear you came across in that truck in Ireland. Use the proceeds to buy one 5D3, one 24-70 II, and a dinner at the Sizzler.
