  1. God bless Nikon! I could not be happier and happier I never turned to
    Canon :))) MS is buggyland ...

    Canon cameras with blue crash screens ... go figure!

  2. For maximum efficiency in running the dual Digic III processor engine Canon
    has elected to use Embedded Win32. This is really exciting and
    groundbreaking news that will surely have even more Nikon users jump ship
    and come over to the Canon camp. This is going to be one sweet camera!

    Hi, I hope you can help!

    I just bought a Canon 33D. Wow! What a camera. But, I hooked it up to
    my PC to download the photos. It looks like a pesky virus called
    "TonyPolsonParisMatch50Week" got into the camera. The salesman said to
    get anti-virus software too, but I thought he was trying to sell me
    something I don't need. Now the shutter won't release unless I prove to
    the camera that I'm not taking shots for something called the "Shoe-in"
    or something like that. What the hell is that all about? Anyway, how
    do I get rid of this virus? It's a real pain in the ass and the shutter
    always goes off whenever a train goes by. Those photos look like utter
    shite as you can see here:

    So now your camera can show you the "blue screen of death" and get a virus
    and infect your other WiFi Canon$ as well? If THAT is a selling point for
    you, have at it! BTW, how much of your memory card will be taken up with
    antivirus software and firewall software?

    This must be an early April's fool joke. Everyone knows that Windows takes
    too much CPU horsepower to work in a camera. You will get less than the old
    36 shots, then the batteries would be dead long before you ever saw the
