EOS Bodies / And for some relief from all those megapixels
« on: January 31, 2015, 07:19:26 AM »
I found this great video showing how the rolling shutter on the EOS 7d (and presumably all other Canon DSL models)

Fascinating....

It also shows just how robust the 7d actually is. I say to my friends that one of the reasons for owning Canon equipment is just how tough it is. Everything about these bodies makes them real users' machines - big positive buttons, solid build quality.... I also have an Olympus EM-10 which I acquired the other day. Now it takes great pictures but its toy-like build quality instantly puts me off using it except in good weather no-drop situations. Has anyone seen that video that that Kai guy (DigitalRev) did where he tries to destroy a 7d? I do feel tempted to go to the dark side sometimes for that high DR, but I love my Canon equipment too much for now. The 50mp jobs that are coming out do interest me but there's no way I could afford to get one for a long time, and given the need to upgrade my lenses while I'm at it.
