    Canon with its line of 1d Series cameras has made it a night mare for some photographers. with heavy and bulky batteries. Why canon???? You cant even find a decent after market charger for the np-e3 battery. you will have to pay from 350 and up or get a used one on e-bay. why not ad a hinged door like all the other cameras by canon. and then we can use AA's RAH RAH. all the pro sumer and film cameras have doors and battery grips or drives that work great.
    Wake up canon Give your customers what they need and stop penny pinching on batteries. Help the pros out they need a break.
    I will say you have excelent quality and I have traded in my 1d series for a better alternative. Charge more the bodies and lenses if you have to. Ths NP-E3 is a bad design. Or canon fix the handle on the batteries so they dont break

    Words of advice - use a *real* newsreader so your posts don't format
    like crap. And, it's "than" not then.

    His post formatted just fine on my newsreader........

    And you are wrong--"then" was appropriate where he used it--"than" would
    have been incorrect!

    You'd do well study grammar rather THAN show your butt....

    And you are wrong--"then" was appropriate where he used it (in the body of
    his post)--"than" would
    have been incorrect! THAN would have been correct in the subject--either way
    if you have to quibble over minor errors you don't belong posting in

  6. you only figured that out now? They've been that way for at least the last 5
    years. Why else do they bring a new model every year which is hardly more
    than a minor update to an existing model and expect everyone to pay full
    price for it?
    Most changes between the D30 and D60 for example would have been better
    handled as a firmware upgrade.

    Canon is a business, and it seems a very successful one. What everyone
    needs to think about is MBA class 1 on day 1.

    The tutor asks all his new students a simple question "what is the purpose
    of your business?"

    The guy from GM says "we make cars...."

    The guy from Dell says "we make PCs..."

    The tutor is about to give up in disgust when the guy from Canon answers
    "the purpose of our business is to make money". The right answer.

    As a customer all we can do is determine just how much a company makes from
    us and when. The simple truth when buying hi-tech products is that the
    next two generations are already in the late stages of development and what
    you buy will be replaced by a new product within months. So buy something
    that does the job you want it to do and a price you are prepared to pay and
    live with it.
    When friends ask me about what to buy in the computer or digital camera line
    I always yell them the same thing "only spend money you would happily put on
    a horse race to buy what you really need or want.. whatever you buy will be
    of zero monetary value inside a year"
