Re: MY Attitude: Goodbye Canon

Some of the messages about wining and crying make me sick. What is so difficult to understand here. A man tries, puts out a lot of efforts in good faith, spends time emotions and money much more than any of the complainers on this thread and what does he get at the end of his road? Is it the fact that he is loved and appreciated by most that gets to you? Can’t figure out what makes you so angry or is it just jealousy? Did any of you have gone 0.1 the mileage he went with the g1? Why can’t you take his good advices together with his less than happy conclusions – is the truth so painful or is it just being so small...

Your a professional and complaining about the G1? Why don't you
just buy something else and stop crying! It makes me ill hearing
someone cry about a $700 Digital Camera and can't seem to get it to
work. Just go out and buy a professional camera goof ball.

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.
