    Happy days playing with your new toys chaps, sounds like it’ll take a time to get familiar enough with it for operating it to become intuitive.

    Never used a card reader, for my cameras I either link wirelessly to the iPad or by cable to the Mac, both schemes work well for me but it may well be different for the new cards in this model. Definitely don’t print out any manuals, electronic manuals are far more convenient for me (and I haven’t the space to store printed ones)

    Colin, does not look like they were giving an extra card away just the Canon offer of Reader and Card. (Just looked on website).

    The dealer was Castle Cameras.

    My understanding is that a card and reader were from Canon and an extra card from the dealer.

    Hmmm ............ something not quite right there. The one in the box was from Canon, second one should have been from the dealer.
    Agree one in box is from Canon.
    What dealer was it and are ALL dealers doing the extra card ? I know WEX and Park are.

    Oooh ........... that is rather a lot. I'll speak nicely to Mrs C and see if she'll print it out at work - in colour.

    not sure why you need a card reader....isn’t USBC direct faster?
    Not sure Brian, I have always used a card reader. I have something in my dim and distant pass that says you should always use a card reader, so the computer can "Pull" the images from the card, rather than without, where the camera "Pushes" the images to the computer. This is the first time I have ever used a cable to connect to the computer and both the cable and previous use of the card reader are pretty quick.

    I think I just like the comfort factor of a card reader, as I have always used one.

    Well done Peter and happy new toy.

    In many respects storm Dennis has helped me, in that, I can take the time to set things up properly and even double check my settings and options.

    I did have a problem uploading images though, as I have only ever used a card reader. I connected the cable and the computer and camera wouldn't/couldn't talk to each other, so I tried to get them to communicate through Bluetooth and that didn't work either. I then tried another tack and downloaded the latest version of Canon EOS Utility and that worked up to a point - I could see Jpeg files, but not RAW files. I then downloaded the very latest version of Canon's DPP and hey presto, I can view and process RAW files.

    There seems to be a bit more dialling in on this beastie, but a couple of stormy days should take care of that. It looks like I get a break in the weather on Monday and I look forward to using it in anger!
