Are you ready for the Canon 5D firmware upgrade?

Well, I know that I am not! I was supposed to have everything ready yesterday in preparation for a model shoot next weekend but it was a complete failure.

First, I wanted to buy a second battery so I would not have to stop shooting after 1-2 hours. Well, it seems like these over priced biohazard things are still hard to find! They are not available in the two Montreal biggest stores nor in the catalog. So unless they receive a miraculous shipment by the end of the week, I will have to be careful with my power usage (read: shoot for about 30 minutes max).

The next item I really wanted to play with was the new and also overpriced Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L. It was supposed to be available by the end of May. Guess what? It is not yet available. Even if it was, the stores where I usually rent my lenses said they wont carry it. They consider it to be too specialized. What about online lenses rental? LensLender does not have it either in their catalog. As far as I know, the goal of rentals is to have access to gear that you would not normal buy, not to rent basic kit stuff!

Seems like I wont have any new toys to play with when the firmware is updated. At least, I can say that I have tried!

By the way, the DLSR Remote review will be posted tonight. So far I like it, stay tuned for the details!
