Canon EOS M Camera kit for sale: Great gift idea!

A year ago I purchased the new Canon EOS M and love the quality and power of the camera in a smaller form factor.

It has the processing power of a full size 50d and the more recent processor and speed.

BUT half the size, cost and weight!

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eos_m_ef_m_22mm_stm_kit

The package includes:

  • Canon EOS M with 22mm 1:2 lens (you can almost shoot in the dark!)
  • Canon EF 18-55 lens
  • Canon Speedlite 90x
  • Canon EOS M adaptor mount: If you have EF-S Canon lens you can put them on this camera! I’ve seen a 400mm lens on a EOS-M!!
  • Memory card
  • Lowepro sling camera bag

I paid over $1500 for everything last year and current prices are around half that or $750.

I’d like to sell the entire kit for $600, see the details and current prices below:

EOSM-package

 

Contact Bob Randklev at 319-533-6927 or email Bob@LifeIsTooBusy.com with any questions or to meet and see the package.

PS: I will post on Craigslist next week but I first wanted the club members to have an opportunity first!

Duck Duck Goose photo shoot 2013 – Cancelled

An update from Bill:

 

“I just returned from Cedar Lake this morning to check the conditions.

The City has closed off the back side of the lake at the bridges on both ends, so there is no access to the West side of the lake.

l don’t know when the trail will open so I would have to say the Club shoot will have to be canceled until further notice.

Look closer at these photos, amazing talent

Meet Michael Paul Smith.

For over 25 years, he has been creating an imaginary world called “Elgin Park,” filled with scaled models of old cars.

They are 1/24th the size to be exact.

He chooses appropriate surroundings for these models, and then uses his camera to capture the most realistic shot possible.

The kind of shot that you have no idea is within a tiny world.

Here’s the best part: he does it all with a $200 point and shoot camera.

Dive into his world below.

Maybe this could be an idea for an upcoming photo shoot or winter project?
