MY Attitude: Goodbye Canon

I am personally sick and tired of dealing with the G1 being out of focus; of the G1 refusing to cooperate with standard gear or even Canon's own gear; and of Canon's almost Microsoft-like attitude against its customers (akin to the attitude of cigarette makers, who view their customers as property). I've worked quite a lot with the camera. I am a professional shooter and cinematographer and I know what I'm doing. I've used Canon gear since the mechanical F-1. I made web sites and solicited help, spoke to Canon techs on numerous occasions all over America, and really believed that it was just a matter of me learning to use the camera adroitly that would make it as capable as, say, and Argus C-3. But it's not. The G1 is so full of bugs and dead-ended broken features that my patience with it is really at an end. Watch for mine (along with a 550EX and a wireless controller) on Ebay or in the Honolulu newspapers soon. I'm buying something else.
