Wait it out a bit. Canon is about to release their version of the mirrorless interchangeable lens system.
From Steve's Digicams:
Canon has finally announced their first mirror-less and interchangeable-lens camera, the EOS M.
Arguably designed for novice users looking to upgrade the quality of their photos while keeping the smaller form of a point-and-shoot, the Canon EOS M has been modeled around a new “EF-M” lens mount. Two EF-M lenses will be available at the launch of the new camera. They include the EF-M 22 mm “pancake-style” f/2 STM lens and the EF-M 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. Canon also plans to bundle the pancake lens with the camera later this year.
Using an APS-C-sized, 18-megapixel CMOS sensor, the EOS M is sure to produce some excellent image quality. It also includes a full HD, 1080p movie mode with manual exposure control and manual audio level adjustment, as well as continuous auto-focus and tracking of subjects in motion. Recording in the MPEG-4 AVC H.264 video format, the EOS M can record in 1080p up to 30fps, 720p up to 60 fps and standard definition as well. The camera also comes with a built-in stereo microphone as well as a video snapshot mode.
On the back of camera, Canon has included a 3.0-inch touch screen LCD that offers the ability to “pinch-to-zoom” for resizing photos, as well as swiping to navigate through a batch of recent photographs or videos. When the camera is in operation, the user can simply tap the screen to engage face detection and subject tracking. The Clear View LCD monitor also utilizes a smudge-resistant coating in order to cut down on fingerprints during operation.
Canon EOS M features:
- 18-megapixel APS-C-sized CMOS image sensor
- DIGIC 5 Image Processor
- New Canon EF-M lens mount system
- Compatible with all EF lensed thanks to an optional EF-EOS M Mount adapter
- ISO 100-6400 (expandable to 12800 in H mode) for video recording, ISO 100-12800 (expandable to 25600 in H mode) for still image shooting from bright to dim light
- Multi-shot Noise Reduction to improve photo detail at high ISO speeds.
- Full HD Movie mode: 1080p video at 30p (29.97), 24p (23.976) and 25p, 720p HD video at 60p (59.94) or 50p and Standard Definition video at 30p (29.97) or 25p
- Manual exposure control
- Multiple resolution frame rates
- Built-in stereo microphone
- Manual audio level adjustment
- Video Snapshot mode with touch-screen editing
- 3.0-inch, 1,040,000 dot, touch screen LCD monitor.
- Scene Intelligent Auto mode, Handheld Night Scene mode and HDR Backlight Control mode.
- Compatible with SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards, as well as Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) cards.
- Compatible with Canon’s GPS Receiver GP-E2 and all Canon Speedlite accessories.
The Canon EOS M is expected to be released during October 2012 and bundled with the EF-M 22 mm f/2 STM kit lens for a price of $799.99. While the camera will be available in black at most major retailers, a white version will be sold exclusively through Canon’s official site.
Ready to step it up, beginning shooters? This is the camera system for you. I would even try it myself, but I can't use a camera that doesn't have a viewfinder to look through. Just too creepy... though it would serve well as strictly a video camera. My Mark III looking through a huge prism 'L' lens is not the best for video as it doesn't continually autofocus. The video quality is probably superior to this little thing, but you have to manually engage autofocus by depressing the shutter halfway down every time you change the focal distance. Yes, the Mark III was made to take photos. It just happens to have an hd camera in it. But then again, I have seen professional film-makers use the EOS 5D class to film their movies... probably using special lenses better suited for video, though.
Happy shooting! Love, Jin.

LA marijuana Dispensary Ban Approved By Council, Expected To Go Into Effect In 30 Days
Ha ha ha! Now we're going back to drug-dealer days! No. I'm not gonna take my usual "ridicule everything" approach.
Though the ban won't effect places like PO, and us small medical residential growers can keep doing what we've been doing, how about these people? From the article:
The LA City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to ban all dispensaries, although patients and caretakers still can grow marijuana at home. When the vote was tallied after a full day of deliberation and public comment, a few members of the public stood up and shouted angrily at the city council, as police stood protectively in front of members.
But opponents of the ban said growing marijuana at home is not feasible for most patients, who will be forced to turn to the illegal market. A representative of the United Food and Commercial Workers, which now includes dispensary workers, said that setting up a bare-minimum, one-light "grow tent" at home costs more than $5,000.
A filmmaker said he suffers from depression and anxiety, and needs medical marijuana "to keep me from losing my mind on every little detail of the day." Another medical marijuana patient came close to tears, saying, "You really don’t understand what it's like to be in our shoes… What it's like for us every morning to wake up and… plan your day over your pain issues."
A man with cerebral palsy said he cannot physically grow marijuana. "Please do not ban the only medication that lets me live comfortably," he said.
Really sucks for the people who can't grow because of their medical condition.

We need to start a medical pharma company! Then we can be legit when they change this all to big pharma.
I need to take a break from smoking pot.
Well I'll tell you what, Kiddies. I haven't had three completely sober days in the past three and a half years. I know, I know. So now I'm at the point where I just need to remember what it's like to not be high.
Wish me luck.
