im gold and havent seen anything yet...

Does the US CPS programme require proof that you are working as a full time professional photog? Just wondering, because here in Hong Kong they ask for that in addition to you owning the required equipment.

No. Here you just list your equipment and if your "score" is high enough, they'll happily take your money and send you a pin.

i thought it said you need to confirm you are a working photographer...

Technically, you need to meet pro criteria to get into CPS. However, if you have the points needed, and you claim that you're a working photographer, they will as someone else said, "take your money".

Does one have to annually qualify based on the cps points out I can enter ask my equipment once and upgrade next year?

You renew annually...CPS maintains a log of your equipment/points based on your equipment registration/serial numbers.

you should get the cf card wallet with gold membership.....mine came out of the blue yesterday....the calendar\appt books are the best that were discontinued this year ......gotta have somehing logged in writing for business proof of use.......those were the most complete calendar books i've ever seen.........mind-numbing derelect to dis-continue those..i use water\impact\dust proof holders to carry cards in

Damn....just bought one on FM because the price was cheaper than what the wallet sells for retail. Guess if mine comes the wife reaps the spoils of my impatience again....

Bummer, I just let my Gold membership expire! This is something I might have actually used.

Thanks - but do I need to enter new equipment to qualify for the level each time? Or the previous purchases remain valid and I just pay the annual fee?

I'm platinum, nothing yet.


I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."

The registered equipment, as long as it still qualifies, is sufficient....no need to keep adding new stuff if the existing equipment qualifies. The only thing you have to keep an eye on is if the equipment is older and CPS drops it from the approved list.

Got mine on Friday. Gold level. Much more useful than a paper based calendar.
Thanks Canon!

I'm so glad there actually are people who use those things. One came in a ThinkTank bag. Never touched it.

Received one from Art Morris, a hard delkin "safe" for cf cards. I threw it in the garbage.

Not trying to rain on your parade, I promise. But with the newer cameras (and the older 1 series) holding 2 cards, and using 32 gb in each one, I never, ever need to carry an extra card with me. I can shoot over 2000 shots on 2 cards on either my 1Dx or 5D3.

Well, I don't like having my eggs in baskets that large - I use 16gb cards and several 8GB cards.

Go out into the woods for a week or a trip with no laptop or other means of offloading your shots and you'll think differently. I also like to keep track of which cards are which, which a wallet helps.
