Legal Advice and Maybe a Warning

I borrowed camera equipment via CPS (Canon Professional Services). Sent it back in the CPS box with their return label. It was never received. tracking information states the box is in the warehouse, but, there is no physical box. I sent it from the 23rd Street Fedex dropoff.
I contacted CPS and plead my case and sent them the tracking info, the receipt for the shipping. I thought it was agreed that I did everything asked of me.   I now receive a notice that legal action is being taken against me. Anyone with a legal understanding of my rights: what options if any do I have.
Please be warned, be extremely weary of Fedex employess enquiring about the contents of your shipped goods. Dont rent anything you are not capable of affording to pay outright. I honestly feel like my options are next to nothing and they are starting to turn the heat up. Im almost disgusted to use my Canon. Im very angry with myself and Im furious with Fedex and Canon.

The Next EOS M?

Canon Rumors


Canon’s next mirrorless?
Along with last week’s 7D spec list, we also received what is said to be the next EOS-M camera. A lot of people haven’t jumped on the EOS-M system yet, whether it’s the bad rap the AF gets, or the lack of lenses in the system, sales are quite weak for the little EOS camera. Most people seem to want something a little bit higher end, or at least be able to add accessories to improve the usability of the camera.


24mp APS-C Sensor
New generation AF system
Removable Electronic Viewfinder (Very high resolution)
Optional grip attachment
Slightly larger than the current EOS M
Introduced with 3 more lenses
$999 USD
Now, all of that sounds like pretty much everyones wish list, so take this CR1 rumor with a grain of salt. I will say that the next EOS M camera is definitely pointing to being higher end from other information we’ve received. An entry level EOS M system camera could be coming in early 2014 and sit in the sub $500 category.

Vincent Laforet is at it again

The angle of video of a Canon 600mm f4 EF Lens with a 2X converter on a RED Epic, is roughly one degree. (1 Degree, 45 arcminutes horizontally to be exact.)

The focal length in terms of 35mm is more than 3400mm – not too shabby when you consider this was shot at 4K, 120fps in full RAW on the Epic.

So who cares? Is this just a case of “just because you can…”

The yet to be released EF mount for the RED system fully supports IS, autofocus, digital aperture control, touch to focus, touch to rack focus and distance readout. All you need to convert your RED to EF is a Torx screwdriver.

Vincent shot this film at Mono Lake 45 minutes after sunset until it was dark. He used an ISO range of 800 to 2000.
