Re: MY Attitude: Goodbye Canon

Kevin, I wanted to add my thanks to the guidance you have provided G1 users through this forum and on your own excellent website. You have provided many useful tips to get the maximum out of the camera, especially with regard to flashes. In fact I bought the 550ex flash based on information you provided :-). It is disconcerting to when one of the professional photographers who is widely respected on this forum "hangs it up" on the same equipment we are using. I will definitely be interested on what you decide for your next purchase! Thanks again...

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.
