EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS & Others

what are 4 and 6, if 1 is already 300mm f4? I mean, all three numbers show 300mm f4, but why exactly?

A bit oftopic.. I'm not crazy about 7D2's flicker option as it, in my opinion, really delays the shutter release. And I shoot indoor sports 2-5 times a week. I missed the peak moment way too many times when I had flicker option enabled.

Technical Support / Canon LP-E6 and LP-E6N mix in BG
« on: February 02, 2015, 10:56:05 AM »

this may be a stupid question, but I'm seriously wondering.. can you put one LP-E6 and one LP-E6N into the battery grip? I don't want to potentionally destroy something.

EOS Bodies / Re: Speculate: How much noise improvement from 5D3 to 5D4?
« on: January 06, 2015, 09:15:34 AM »
I note that the 7D2 has about 1/3 stop noise improvement (via increased sensitivity) from the 7D
this statement is complete and utter bullcrap.

One thing missing is build.  Perhaps a drop test :)
i'm pretty sure the Canon 50mm 1.8 wouldnt do any better than Yongnuo since its built like sh*t as well.

to be honest, who the fcuk cares anymore. definitely not people, who shot sports, for which 7D2 is intended for.

i'm extremely happy with my 7D2 and i use it 80% for indoor sports, where crop doesn't shine due to high ISO - over 4000 up to 10.000, but it's still good, but speed and AF are just sick.

"OH WOE IS ME, some people will receive the 7D2 a few days earlier than me, OH MY GAWD. I will not be able to brag sooner than them and my cats will not have new pictures, have mercy!!"

really people? really? in Slovenia, we won't see the darn thing before mid of December.

EOS Bodies / Re: DPR Adds Studio Samples for EOS 7D Mark II

That's respectable from a 'look how close APS-C can get to FF these days!' perspective.
that respect was already earned by 70D 14 months ago.

juvenile video. A6000 and 11fps, ok. but doesn't have a state of the art AF to keep track of fast, erratic moving subjects like D4s and 1Dx have. not weather sealed, etc. and there are so many more reasons this video is just.. meh. especially the social media part and stealing thunder.. that part was just plain funny.

but as long as a6000 is enough for his needs, thats fine.

APS-C is never as sharp as FF, even at ISO100, no way you can expect they would be on equal terms at 800-3200, where noise is a lot more visible and apparent on APS-C than on FF. More noise, less sharpness and less contrast.

In other words.. JPEG just about the same as 70D from 100-6400, maybe 1/3 of an improvement, depends where on the picture you look. I was hoping they would improve noise reduction algorytm for JPEG.

images look strong at that High ISO because they were all shot in practically good light conditions. Same ISO in poorly lit gyms shooting fast moving subjects like f.e. basketball/handball sprinters.. that's another story.

and as it has been written in the comment section in that video.. it's more of a commercial to the 7D2 than a review.

extremely sloppy comparison.

edit: nevermind, my fault in my extremely sloppy reading

Is it just me or his Blog is a mess!? I like the info, but I have rarely seen a blog that is so uncomfortable to read...
I thought I was the only one. Agree, his blog is a freaking riot.

already 2 errors in the review.. 22MP and Dual Digic6+ (PLUS). No, it's a 20.2MP and it has Dual Digic6. Let's read onward..
