Canon Professional Services

I’m very pleased that Canon have renewed my Silver membership to their Professional Service, which offers an extensive after-sales support to professional photographers.  The service also offers exclusive free access to a range of benefits including support teams at many international and local events and  a priority maintenance and repair service and direct support from their professional representatives.

My digital shooting is exclusively with Canon bodies and lenses, I’ve used this brand for many years and find it very reliable, easy and intuitive to use and high quality.
