EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D Classic Good Enough for Pros?
« on: February 20, 2015, 12:09:31 AM »
may be it is just me, but i do like forcing myself to use old gears to capture images since i believe that i can later move much faster with new high end gears if i am able to manage myself to deliver images with old gears without any problems

note:  well, i did mess up my daughter birthday at one time during first year of photography, but i have not giving up using old gear to capture images...

below is an image captured in quite a low light condition with canon 30d and 430ex ii.  it was my wife birthday... lol...  yep, i got stared at when loading this set on my car  :P

...As some have suggested, when shooting fast moving objects, it's mostly about tracking ability than the number of AF points. Assuming I try to get the moving subject as close to the center as possible, how's the tracking ability of the 7D compared to the 5D Mark III?


i have both cameras, and i personally do not think that 7d can match 5d mark iii on moving subject, and i think many other thinks the same way.  however, i set my canon 7d focus track sensitivity to:

    "-1 from mid point for ai servo (just my personal way of shooting)..."

Good idea ishdakuteb.  Here are some of my photos shot with the 7D - I didn't have it that long, but I think these shots show that it can produce good work, even with challenging subjects like wildlife and macro:


glad that you still like your canon 7d as i (also love canon 30d beside my 5d mark iii) and others do.  i love your first image...

do pros care much about equipments? somewhat but probably not whole lot...  emily soto still use her 7d to deliver her images, zhang jingna proved and used her canon 350d to deliver outstanding quality of images, see link below...

but do pros need new high end cameras, i think the answer is yes... it is probably all about business...

i am NOT a pros, i am more like a HOBBYIST; who like to learn more and more, daily.  i care more about learning techniques, so i have learn a lot from number of people in this forum and other pros (absolutely at no cost... lol... that is my wife's rule when letting me learning photography.)

however, if i can deliver these following examples with canon 7d, i bet you that there are number of pros still can... (note:  those noise are mine...  ;))


1. I'm actually Rock Kenwell in disguise ;)
2. A full size 7D2 sensor isn't going to win over landscape photographers that have left Canon for Nikon/Sony.

1. I do believe that he does deliver better images than yours...
2. Not sure about others, but I am sure that you can not win over my landscape images even when i am using my old camera and i have just recently started shooting landscape...

if you think that is untrue, prove me wrong...

PLM? What is this?

it is parabolic light modification

EOS Bodies / Re: Sony to capture all the non-Canon sensor sales

My interpretation of this is: Nikon users should be very grateful to Canon for not buying APS-C/FF sensors to Canon. If Canon bought Sony sensors too, Sony could charge whatever they wanted for their sensors!!!

This dirty trick is not new at all, especially in Asia, but works all the time if not paying attention...  But, for now, Sony would not do this until they ensure that all camera companies completely shut-downed/closed their sensor manufactures...

There are many more than Sony, there are Toshiba, Samsung, Panasonic , Renesas, Aptina, Omnivision to mention a few, so don't worry

Number of these listed manufactures has been acquired by Sony.  Thus, if companies keep switching their sensor selection from manufacture to manufactures, what happen to Sony, spend more money and buy them all? LOL...  (Just a thought to deal with dirty business)

This rumor:
caught my eye for a couple of reasons:
* better IQ than the current A7 series sensor (!)
* completely new cameras designed to compete with the 5D3 - including AF capability

*IF* Sony can deliver that, then where is Canon going to be left standing considering that its sensor is seriously lagging? Especially in performance below ISO 800. Sony have also licked shadow noise and suffer no banding.

here are some of my recent shots with canon 5d mark iii and canon 7d while practicing landscape photography (first time ever), buy your new sony and shoot something that compete with my images (note:  this time, i listen to one of a member that i should not challenge you with my canon 30d due to unfairness....) lol

or you really want to compete with 7d? 4th and 5th images...

note:  all images were shooting with iso 100 (f/22 on full frame and f/16 on crop... i know it pass the limit of diffraction on both, but who care...)

What you've said here is that Michael Reimann is owned by Seth Resnick. Is that what you wanted to say?

I said exactly what I wanted to say. Note the spacing for paragraphs.


luminous-landscape is NOT owned by seth resnick, instead it is owned by michael reimann according to my understanding... but who care...
