Dear Santa: Canon 7D

Dear Santa,

I’ve been a good boy this year, I’d like to think.  I’ve been a most kind, patient, and loving father.

And I’m concerned that December 25th is a very very busy day for you.  So I’ll make you a deal: Come that night for my daughter, but stop here later this month for me.  Because, like I said before, I’m a deserving kinda guy.  I’ve been good, and isn’t that all that counts?

My daughter deserves to have her memories protected. Videos, pictures, etc. should only be of the highest quality.  Even if they happen in a relatively dark room, they ought to be stored for eternity in a format that allows for low noise, frozen action, and instant video.

My daughter needs her father to have a new Canon 7D, announced today from those wonderful people in Japan.

Honestly, I ask this not for myself, but for her.  Think of the children.

Dual DIGIC processors, 8 frames per second, high ISO shooting, three different HD video modes. . .  It’s a crop format sensor, so all my lenses will work on it. It’s a work of art as much as it is the ultimate picture-taking machine.  It’s the kind of camera that Scott Bourne might have not switched to Nikon for a year and a half back.  But that’s water under the bridge now.

Today, I ask you for this:

Canon 7D

Granted, it’s $1900 or so. I should probably spend that money on a new computer.  But look at that thing!  Isn’t it gorgeous?

Just drop it off as soon as you can, and you can skip my present in December.  Thanks!

Your fan,


P.S.  Failing that, I’ll take a winning lottery ticket or a rich patron of the photographic arts.  Either way, get back to me, OK?
