Re: MY Attitude: Goodbye Canon

Well, crap, this is like being told there is no Santa Claus after having the fireplace expanded. I learned several months ago that postings with your name on it meant I would get some level headed rational advice about the proper care and feeding of the G1 and not a bunch of hysterical nonsense. Now I don't know what to think. I get frustrated with the G1 at times but the vast majority of the time it does a good job for me. Then again, I'm not a professional photographer and certainly not as picky as you should be. Let us know what camera you decide to get, then we'll all buy stock in that company, :).

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.
