Yeah, 1D's have seals for moisture and dust intrusion prevention, for which you pay a good additional amount of money for the camera, 7D isn't so privileged.

Welcome back. How did your gear stand up to the dust?

once I got home I went to the camera store and had them take a look at the body and lenses, and to my surprise they said it looked good to go, no signs a thorough cleaning was needed. I did take as much care as possible when changing lenses and storage in a bag when not in use.

James,

I make photo books at Lulu.com It's really easy, even for a computer idiot like me. No need to have (or understand) any software. You just make it online using the templates that are right there on the Lulu website.

Here's a link:
http://www.lulu.com/cr​eate/books#photobook (external link)


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
