Canon’s Photography in the Parks Program Equips Visitors with Free Camera and Camcorder Loans, Professional Photography Lessons and a Unique, Hands-On Experience to Create Lasting Memories
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., June 4, 2012 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is once again joining forces with several of the country’s acclaimed national parks to offer free photography workshops to visitors this summer. The Canon Photography in the Parks Program provides participants with free equipment loans and professional photography instruction as they take part in a guided walking photo tour. Following the tour, participants have the opportunity to print images for free and take home a CD of their image files. Visitors of all ages and experience levels are welcome to participate.
New to this year’s program are Canon video workshop sessions. Visitors can experience and learn about shooting video by using a Canon VIXIA camcorder or EOS digital SLR camera and participating in a hands-on videography demonstration with experts.
“Canon is incredibly excited to help people improve their photography skills and capture the beauty of our national parks through our Photography in the Parks Program,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. “Our nation’s magnificent and pristine national parks offer the quintessential location to help people improve their photography skills and inspire creativity. In doing so, Canon hopes to also help those who visit parks this summer create and preserve lasting memories and leverage their newfound skills throughout their lives, for all of their important moments.”
In addition, Canon is sponsoring the new National Geographic iPhone application, National Parks by National Geographic. Available as a free download from Apple’s App Store, the app provides users with park information and photo galleries, travel tips from National Geographic editors, and information about park events – including the Canon Photography in the Parks Program. The app also features photo tips to help users capture beautiful photography throughout their summer travels.
The Canon Photography in the Parks Program will take place at various dates through the summer at the following national parks:

  • Grand Canyon: May 31 – June 20
  • Zion: June 24 – July 9
  • Yosemite: July 13 – July 17
  • Yellowstone: July 23 – July 31
  • Grand Teton: August 1 – August 2
  • Rocky Mountain: August 5 – August 11
  • Acadia: August 18 – August 29

Amazon has a Canon EF 600mm f/4.0 L IS II USM Lens in stock.
Only 1 lens is available, the price is $13,999.95 (compare at $12,999.00) and the seller is Imaging World (I'm familiar with them, but have not personally bought from them).
I expect this lens to be very hard to find for a while - but you have to decide if you are willing to pay a premium to insure that you get one soon.
Update: Getting better - the Amazon price is now $13,599.00 plus $44.95 shipping via 17th Street Photo (reliable).
