  • Created discussion thread Price drop at B&H
    Sorry if I missed this being posted but as I mentioned the wife and I had a tax refund so I had put the camera and viewfinder and an extra Canon battery in my cart at B&H where I am a registered ...
  • This is one of the things I especially like about this forum, friendly helpful advice. I didn't get that on the forum for the 7D MkII! Some of the folks there get up on the wrong side of the bed!
  • I guess I should have explained in my first post that I already own the M and all 4 EOS-M lenses, the Canon lens adapter and the flash.  This morning I saw B&H has one kit that just has the body ...
  • I know I am a bit behind the curve but we got some unexpected money from the IRS via our tax wiz accountant. So I am looking at the M3 finally. There are some good deals on Ebay for new ones, $599 ...
  • Great pictures as usual, Marco. Looks like your wife is doing well health wise, best wishes for tht both of you in this new year!
  • Replied in Ken Rockwell
    I've always found him very opinionated and he tends to loves anything Nikon and treat other brands as second tier or worse.  Yet he posts really good shots of all angles of the product, be it a ...
  • Created discussion thread A touch of Sicily for dinner.
    Wednesday night I meet up with my wife in Galveston where she is working an ongoing  project for Marathon Oil and we have a weekly dinner date. Tonight was a nice little Sicilian style place. It's ...
  • Replied in 11-22 lens
    Jesus that's like complaining about the lens caps having to be removed. It is a superwide zoom in a small package and the twisted lock position is better for storing it in a compact space.
  • Created discussion thread Galveston's old Broadway Cemetery
    I  had a few hours to kill until my wife finished with clients and we could go to our hotel so I stopped at the old Broadway Cemetery. I like cemeteries, reading the headstones and the sad statues ...
  • Created discussion thread A little trip to San Antonio
    We live in Houston and my wife had business in San Antonio and invited me to go along for the 3 day trip. I took one of my DSLR bodies and a few lenses but in the end it stayed in our hotel room, ...
  • Created discussion thread My daughter's wedding, loved using my M
    This past weekend I attended my daughter's wedding which was an outdoor affair at Kitsap Memorial State Park on the Kitsap peninsula west of Seattle. The weather really cooperated as it rained the ...
  • I seemed to have missed how to go between cards if you want to review or delete images. I currently use both cards and sometimes record different parts of an assignment to different cards.
  • Created discussion thread Using my M while doing car repairs
    I'm in the process of putting new valve cover gaskets on my Land Rover Discovery which involves disconnecting a lot of vacuum lines, electrical connections ans wires as well as removing parts of ...
  • Created discussion thread Funny but the M menus have me spoiled!
    Over the summer I have been using my M for lots of the typical family stuff, kids in the pool, birthday parties and nights out on the town with my wife. So tonight I wanted to shoot my grandson's ...
  • Created discussion thread Birthday dinner for my wife
    She had to go down to Galveston for business this past week so I came along, her birthday was Monday and although she had to work all day we celebrated with a nice dinner out. She is hard to buy ...
  • I hadn't been following things in this forum for a few days and noticed 2 mails in my inbox this morning from CanonPriceWatch stating the M3 was now available in the USA for $679 from B&H and ...
  • Thanks to all for the replies. I was just wondering if there were any special precaustions. I am well aware of the usual dust removal remedies although I usually send in my DSLRs to Canon once a ...
  • I got mine back in the spring via Canon Price Watch for $1499. It was from a store in Canada but has the north America warranty. I've taken some really good shots with it and have really enjoyed ...
  • Wow, that is a lot of shots! But when a camera shoots at up to 10 fps the shots rack up pretty fast. When I got mine earlier this year I was mainly shooting teen sports, mostly my grandkids who ...
  • Created discussion thread dust on my sensor
    I have started to notice a few flecks of dust on my sensor, mostly when there is a flat blue or solid color sky. I always try to change lenses quickly and as much out of windy outdoor situations ...
