I don't see why they wouldn't. Anytime I've taken something to Canon, I've walked it into Canon Irvine. The receptionists seemed to be trained, and will attempt to troubleshoot the problem with you, before filling out the paperwork for repair.

I was told by customer support that the Newport News location was the only one that did not accept drop offs. Figures, considering that's the one 30 minutes from me.

forgot my iphone down at the park. Now that it's 2a.m. I'm not going to send a ring and a note since it looks like it's at the house of someone I trust (just down the road). I think I left it on their stage/the sound system.

So nice being able to track the phone when you lose it. It's gotten it back to me twice now when random people find it.

I went to chicago in January while they were having a blizzard(or atleast what i would call a blizzard as a Virginian). While walking into the hotel one night i dropped my iphone into a pile of ~12" of snow. didn't realize for like 3 hours.

used find my iphone and surprisingly the phone still worked and i used my ipad to pretty much map me to exactly where it was.

So random question- anyone have any resources for shooting events/weddings? whether its technique/set-up stuff, or more professional-type "dos and donts" type of stuff.

some family of mine runs a wedding planning business for the Pakistani/Indian community here, so its relatively easy money if i wanted to shoot those.

there's a ton of barrel distortion. I didn't realize there was so much on a 24mm.

24mm on full frame distorts like a mofo, I love it.

.

at about 24 on FF is where you start seeing distortion especially the mustache kind. You can see it at 35mm on FF too. By 50 it's almost gone and 85 there's usually no distortion. Then when you get above 85 you start getting the background barrel distortion look (compression from DOF)
