FWIW, if anyone is like me and wants a 30 day return policy instead of 7 days (adorama), ..........


The Adorama returns policy is actually: 14 days (7 days for video, audio, and digital equipment), for a money back refund, or exchange - added to which, we do not charge a restocking fee.

Sincerely

thanks for clearing that up

It looks like you might have to pay some royalites if you wanna sell the videos made by 5d II (but let's wait before some lawyer reads it for us :D).

I'm confused,  Helen.  Is the 5D II not considered "digital equipment" then?  If not, then what is "digital equipment"?

FWIW 30 days return policy at OneCall is still much better.

Cameras are definately on 14 day return (with no re-stocking fee); digital  equipment really refers to video/editing equipment.

aahhh... nice! ....
<- off to check out  kurt's his facebook profile.

I emailed the store I bought from again and they (as well as every other store in norway) pushed the arrival date to the 10th, some stores later than that like the 29th or into January :(

it is not looking good to get it by the 13th!

Hi Cof,

 I read the thread, thanks so much for posting. I don't know if it is anything to worry about. From what I understand part of the limit is only to clips running over 12 minutes. So apart from a Hitchcock movie called " The Rope " I don't think anyone runs a 12 minute continuos clip for stock or anything for that matter except maybe time lapse.
 By the way check out " The Rope " if you like Hitchcock. He ran full ten minute reels without editing and to change rolls the camera would pan behind a sofa or something and go to dark then he would start the next reel and bring it back into the light from the same location, pretty cool.
 Just to be sure I have a call into CPS " Canon Professional Services " and I am waiting on a call back.

Best,
AVAVA

Yeah I've seen that movie, I'm a fan of Hitchcock (love the old movies, they all had quite long scenes without cuts, some find it boring though :D).

I think that only viewing might be limited, though I'm not 100% sure. Please share the canon's respone when you get it.

I am glad I am not in this nervous queue for the first shipments :) If things will go well I'll buy my 5d Mk II somewhere in March-April after the first rush fill be over; and hopefully after possible initial issues will be fixed and firmware updated...

 Just my opinion but with the world economy we are going to face over the coming year or longer I would not invest in new gear unless it will help directly your sales. Stuff it in your mattress for now till the economy stabilizes a bit.

You definitely have a valid point, but I want the MkII because I want to get into stock video.

 Hi RmR,
 
 I think that growth and diversity in your companies product is a good investment. Buying something so you can expand your company in new directions can be a great choice. Also good for the brain to have some fresh food like motion to keep it strong and happy.

Best,
AVAVA

I'm considering cancelling my preorder of the 5dII due to the black spot issue. I might just have to get a 50d for XMAS and wait a few years before upgrading. I would just have to avoid buying any ef-s lenses (I'm currently shooting with a 300d and need the upgrade badly). Anyone else on the fence on this?

Why not get an old 5D?  They are going cheap now and I think the image quality is superior to the 50D.  I am going to wait and see if the 5D MKII comes down in price next year but I am happy to stick with my 5D.

is that black spot issue phenomenal? according to what I read on some other sites just some (few) users experienced that and it may be resulting from several variables (camera malfunction,post process etc)but for the time being it too early to tell if  it is a general problem. since not so many 5d m2 users out there to figure out how common that problem might be.
anyway I am so desperate to replace my old DSLR as it is on it's last legs and I will be getting 5d m2 as soon as I can ,despite the risks of being an early adopter.

somebody seems to have found a solution for the black dot issue.I still hope that is not a general problem or will be fixed by canon completely .

eta:sorry I just read further comments saying the problem was not completely gone.

Thanks CofkoCof for posting this.now we know they  admit the problem and working on it. I hope it'll be sorted out soon otherwise it'd be really big disappointment after all waiting and high expectations. Fingers crossed  ;)
