Sorry, I can't help with your question.
But have a question for you of my own. I am curious how you had a Canon refurb sent to a Canadian address. I was always under the impression that the refurbs were only available to US credit cards and US shipping addresses.
This is true. I got it off a member here. He bought it when Canon had it on the 20% off sale, but he didn't want it, so he sold it on here (to me) without ever opening the package.
I'm sure he made a few bucks, but I got it for exactly as much as Canon has it on their site (plus, the seller included the shipping)...and Canon is constantly sold out. So, I think both the seller and I are very happy
haha thanks, but like I said in my original post, I'm aware of EOSCount. I really don't want to bother my dad with this this much, he's already doing a lot for me (shipped my 1D3 when I sold it, dealt with customs for the 5D2, going to be testing it for me, and dealing with getting it to my friends, etc...). I'm just hoping to use a test shot I'm getting him to take to make sure the camera works as a basis for a shutter count...though I can't remember such a thing existing...
And thanks for the input on your count! I'd be stoked if mine was in the dozens or few hundreds! Basically, if all works out I'll be getting a brand new 5D2 at used market prices
