Frank,
You should have come to the Canon dinner. They handed out a beautiful sample book there. I'm sure they'd send you one if you asked.

You were also unfairly harsh about that press conference. They had the device there, they had samples to look at, and a number of product experts to talk to. The lighting in the room after the presentation was fine. I've been to bad press conferences but this wasn't one of them.

P.S. Note to the transcriber, it's "Canon" not "Cannon".
