no, of course not really...I would like to buy a new toy every

this whole forum has discussions revolving around an on going
process in digital development...we are just driving the machines
of these digital pioneers...and I'm loving my view on my machine
don't forget the effort it took to get us the machine
it's like we want it all with the push of ONE button, if your into
computers, since when was it that easy? The hardware is here, all
I'm saying is get your soul into the machine...figure out why it
does what it does and work it out...

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.

If it has to end then sell it by all means. A dun think a PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER like u knows how to work a TOY to wonders anyway.

I like the G1, better than my Canon IN somehow.

I shoot for leisure, and i think photography should be taken leisurely.

If g1 isn't good for u and all the rant about Canon not doing their firmware upgrades, I think u have found a perfectly legitimate excuse to dump the damn thing.

Did u even read the brochures before u buy it?

I dun complain about my grades when my teachers did not give me all the test questions (and answers) before hand. I studied for it. Study your G1.
