Canon Rebel T4i Camera
Is every camera bag you own labeled with your name, address and phone number? If not, go label it right now.
 
Upon arriving at our rental house in Maui, Hawaii, after being up/traveling for nearly 24 hours, my daughter asked me if I had her camera - a Rebel T4i. With a sinking feeling, I replied that I did not.
 
My mind immediately began plotting the course of action that was to be taken - after I had some sleep. We had been in four airports and on three planes that day. Locating the camera appeared to be a huge challenge - if not an impossibility.
 
I woke up the next morning to a voice mail from Janet at the United ticket counter in the Vancouver International Airport. The camera had been left on a plane and went at least one stop beyond our time on that particular aircraft. Janet knew how to reach me because: I had a business card in the camera case.
 
While it may seem normal to have a business card in a travel camera case, the particular case my daughter was using was the tiny Lowepro Rezo TLZ-20 Case. Cases this size are seldom tagged, but as proven on my last trip, they should be.
 
If you were to lose your camera and the case you are carrying it in, would someone know how to get in touch with you? This does not apply only to airline travel. A lost camera could happen at a restaurant, hotel, wedding, park ... or anywhere.
 
This story *should* have a happy ending. An intern apparently dropped the ball on shipping the camera back, but that issue appears to have been resolved and the camera is in route. And fortunately, I had an EOS M packed to HI - it became my daughter's camera for the trip.
 
 
Following is a relevant (and entertaining) infographic Mike shared with us:

From Canon Professional Network:
 
"Canon Ambassador Jeff Ascough has been photographing weddings in his distinctive, award-winning, documentary style with the EOS 5D Mark III DSLR and the EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens: you can find out his opinions about working with the new standard zoom lens in an exclusive CPN interview.
 
The EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens is a smaller, lighter, more optically sophisticated and durable incarnation of a zoom lens that was already much favoured by photojournalists, portrait, landscape and wedding photographers."

SIGMA 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM, SIGMA USB DOCK Release Postponed
 
Thank you for your patronage.
 
The "SIGMA USB DOCK" and "SIGMA 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM" lens were expected to be released in March 2013 for Canon. Because of a delay in the procurement of [manufacturing] parts, the release date has been postponed.
 
For now, the revised release date has not been determined. Please check our website for future updates on these products.
 
We apologize for the inconvenience.
 
B&H has the Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Lens (Canon/Nikon) available for preorder.

Canon EOS Rebel T5i
Here is a list of changes/upgrades in the Rebel T5i from the Rebel T4i:

  • New Finish
  • 360° Rotation Mode Dial
  • Larger and Raised Icons on the Mode Dial
  • Addition of Scene Mode to the Mode Dial
  • Digital Zoom during Movie Recording
  • Real-time preview of creative filters in Live View
  • New 18-55mm STM Kit Lens
Canon informed me that the entire imaging pipeline is the same. Same AF system as well.
 
While I would of course rather have the newer model, the above-listed additional benefits will set you back, at announcement time, an additional $100.00 USD for the body-only and $250.00 USD for the 18-55mm lens kit (with the $150 instant rebate in effect).
 
Am I missing something? Or should the T5i perhaps be better-named the T4iN?
 
Is anyone going to pay the price for these minor T5i upgrades?
 
Is a full T5i review worth the significant time and cost required to create?
 
Let me know what you think over at our Facebook page.
