Re: MY Attitude: Goodbye Canon

Hi Kevin:

Sorry to hear about your experience. Check out my new gallery .

Anyway, if I were a professional photographer where quality is everything. I would spend $thousands to get a 4-6 megapixel SLR digitals. Most of the G1 users are non-professional so G1 is the best thing for under $1000. It pays back in short time for you after investing in it, right?

All other digitals under $1000 have this or that deficiency.

I do understand Canon's attitude. They still need to learn about high quality customer service.

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.
