There's an important consideration to take into account as to whether one user says their printer clogs up more than another: ambient humidity - too much or too little. Not always the manufacturer at fault ...
In my case I had a 7600 that never coughed once in five years using it once, sometimes twice, a week and as Murphy's Law would have it I paid an extra 1000€ for an extended 3 year service warranty that I never had to use. Ho-hum.

m3: I took about 1.8 million shots on the 70-300L and it never hiccuped once. I use Nikon, Sony and Pentax gear too but you've got to hand it to Canon for robustness.
If this model follows suit (not expecting 'L' figures) it will suffice for almost all users.

@MasterWayne et al
Two 7D's which both had shutter mechanisms replaced; one twice. Two 7DMark2's, again with shutter mechanism replacement and one 80D.
Some days I was shooting between 7500 and 9000 pictures, single shot: every one a coconut as they used to say at the fun fair ...

sh10453: At first, from the name, I thought it was a silicon chip manufacturer for cell phones!

Regardless of the amount that a shrewd lawyer decided to go for (I'm thinking the woman most likely has no clue what a $Billion means), it's pretty basic that you obtain a release before you publish or sell pictures of individuals.

The photographer and the restaurant will learn a good lesson the hard way, no matter what the settlement will be.

The attack on the woman in these comments is probably unfair because this amount was most certainly decided by the lawyer. She probably thinks a Billion is something like half a million :-) .. After all, she is an average American voter. So what do you expect!!!

Thank you.

@sh10453
I've known many intelligent Americans and fully understand why they don't fall for this pantomime the powers that be call democracy.
Mine was a subtle dig at the fact that a billion is a million millions in proper English ...

Dear Mr. Counterfeiter,
Canon here, just so you know, you've made a boo boo where we have pointed it out with a little arrow for you. We thought we'd post it on the internet so you can all copy our lenses better next time.

The word is 'EXPLICIT'. All images are graphic.

n3eg: What we need is encryption built into memory cards. Heck, if they can put wifi in them little things, they can be self-encrypting. Don't make us pay for a few sloppy journalists who can't keep track of a 50 kg bag of DSLR junk.

I'm sure those "few sloppy journalists" would love to interview such an erudite ...

scottcraig: Undoubtably there are some genuine concerns for the safety of persons such as photojournalists who need to protect sensitive images. However one should consider the negative impact it can have which can include a significant price increase in camera models for average photographer or professional who has no need to encrypt their images via camera. Instead I would urge such persons/journalists to take the necessary measures to download and encrypt their sensitive data using the tools already available. To make such a request from camera manufacturers is in my opinion reflects an unwillingness to take full responsibility for securing their own data. What we need to understand here is any act to protect our privacy or that of the persons we work with cannot be dependent on any one piece of hardware or software but rather by engaging in sound practices ourselves and simple common sense.

Just saying.

"Just saying", but not really reading.
Try this bit again:
"On countless occasions, filmmakers and photojournalists have seen their footage seized by authoritarian governments or criminals all over the world. Because the contents of their cameras are not and cannot be encrypted, there is no way to protect any of the footage once it has been taken."

Helloooo? Anybody out there?
Number 7 is a VERTICAL image.

entoman: 7 - the drone shot, looks poorly executed. A shot at greater height, with a telephoto lens, would have compressed the perspective and eliminated the irritating "trees falling to the left" appearance. Just a thought.

It's a vertical shot

No. Elton John could be a good sport and REALLY support the arts by paying the bill himself. At this level he gets publicity from it automatically anyway. Win-win as they say in Chinese ...
