This is the plan I have and a few friends that only shoot for hobby.
Gold Membership offers the seasoned imaging professional support for virtually every technical and creative issue that may arise. Whether you require live 24/7 emergency phone support, expedited repair and loaner coverage, on-site support at select events and shows, or the opportunity to evaluate the latest professional equipment, CPS Gold has you covered. Please see below for full details.Membership is available to individuals (self-employed or employed with a professional imaging company) who play a direct role in the creation of moving or still images on a full-time basis.
Applicants must meet Canon equipment requirements to enroll. The fee for CPS Gold membership is $100 annually.
Yes, but it IS supposed to be for professionals only. They may be more lax about checking professional credentials in the US than they are here in the UK, but you would still need to meet the minimum equipment requirements.
For an amateur to get in over here, they would have to make some false statements and come up with proof they are in business (website, business stationery etc) as well as having the qualifying equipment (here I think you need 2 pro bodies and 3 pro lenses, unless it has changed).
For somebody with just one body, a 60D like the OP, this is not a practical way to go to get your camera cleaned.
