Thanks!. In winter, when the climate is much more pleasant and the trees has less foiliage thus easier to see the animals

jokes aside, the rangers doesn't allow one to stay too long , probably because of the spotlights more so than the flash...

whether DXO and the D810 is flawed or not...I sure wish Canon brought out something with those megapixel numbers....

EOS Bodies / Re: Eos7D mk2, How EXCITED will you be if . . .?

Disclaimer:  I'm not trying poke fun at Ivan's original thread so much as build some excitement around a release.  Mondays need positive thoughts because they are, in fact, Mondays.

No sweat, this is all fun and games anyway. But it would be great if anyone senior at Canon actually read this stuff! Personally I am erring on the side of caution to avoid disappointment! :)

Bigger sensor
24mp
less shadow noise
Joystick
WIFI
GPS
3.2 inch touchscreen LCD or bigger
Heck while were at it electronic viewfinder...Canon has to get in the game at some stage!
2 axis spirit level
100% viewfinder
radio control for speedlights
Intervalometer
MF aids like zebra stripes etc

EOS Bodies / Re: Which is better for high ISO, 6D or 5D Mk III?
« on: July 08, 2014, 03:19:09 AM »
I also (only) have the Eos6D and I have regularly shot images at iso 25000 and printed them large. What I have found is that different software gives diffirent results. At the moment I am experimenting with Nik, Topaz, DXO and LR. They all work well in reducing noise and some images work better with some software than  others. Personally I think that perhaps the difference between these cameras at the limit might just be too small to make a real difference and maybe software is a less expensive alternative...

Even though I am not really in the market for a new 7Dmk2 I would be very disappointed if it doesn't have new and improved sensor technology because it would mean that there is a very good chance that there also will be nothing new on the horizon for FF either.

I desperately want a FF 36mp+ sensor body
plus an Eos M mk3 with an electronic viewfinder (build in or otherwise) and at least 70D comparable live view AF!

Is this just tooo much to ask for? Really?? :)

It's probably not the camera for me, so I'd be more surprised than disappointed. IMO the long delay on the 7DII must relate to the sensor; everything else is in place.

So if the sensor doesn't offer some significant advance over the 70D s new tech of duel 'pixel' I'd be surprised. I still wonder if Canon would have the b***s to make it a high speed, low light king of around 16 mp. Leave the really high mp to the amateur lines and really kick out some FF challenging IQ from the crop sensor.

No I actually dont think they do have the b.lls for something like that. If anything the past has shown us that they are arch conservative...their one highlight might have been the leap from 12 to 22 mp with the 5D2..since then they have not ventured into any unfamiliar territory... which has not been a bad thing from their financial point of view but a bit of a let  down for camera enthusiasts...think Fuji X100s, Sony Rx100mk3, Olympus OMD, Nikon DF, Sony A7R...the list goes on and on. But if you look at their financials they do seem to still be profitable in the face of dwindling camera sales....

But will the 'something new' translate into something with much better image quality?

EOS Bodies / Eos7D mk2, How disappointed will you be if . . .?
« on: July 07, 2014, 10:20:43 AM »
it has the same sensor as the Eos70D but with just more bells & whistles?

I have a sneaky feeling that maybe its going to be the same image quality as the 70D just more robust, full frame viewfinder, gazillion frames per second, wifi, gps and class leading video...So just how disappointed will you be if that is the case?

Lets face it the Sony sensors are pretty good, if not class leading, probably as good as it's going to get at the moment, so just why will Canon have such better sensor technology as Sony's? Nothing in the recent history of Canon sensor technology suggests otherwise...

If, and its a big if, they bring out a ID mkIV size sensor it will be great, but maybe its also an indication that they just could not squeeze out anymore image quality with their R&D at present....which begs the question then why they don't just buy Sony sensors? Would anybody mind a Sony sensors in  Eos bodies?
