New Canon Comes To Visit - And Will Return
We directed a number of customers over to the bright red Canon corner and the ladies took the device through its paces. One chap was terrifically impressed with the new ability of the camera to nail accurate focus - the dual nature of the AF on each pixel really does show. Another went out into the street and stopped cars with the high-speed drive.
I was impressed with the feel of the grip - that is small beans to some people but you'd be surprised how it makes a difference if you are going to use a camera for an extended period of time. Get it right and you get better shots near the end of the engagement - you are not as tired. Mind you, after some shoots I look forward to getting tired and emotional...
One chap deliberately tried ( gasp, shock, horror ) non-Canon lenses on the body and found they worked all the systems. How he sorted that one out with the Canon rep I have no idea but it all seemed amicable.
The ladies and the camera are coming back this Friday - that's tomorrow between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM. Do come and try the camera and their patience. You will be rewarded.
