I stumbled upon this and thought I would share.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Manual Mode Exposure Question...
« on: June 12, 2012, 02:50:35 PM »
I usually shoot in AP mode and set the ISO manually. During some of my daughters plays I have tried using manual with some success. I frequently use manual mode if I am going to have time to do a shoot, such as a portrait.

Reading on here I see that many say they use manual most of the time. For the ones who do this I am wondering how you go about getting the correct exposure in changing conditions. Such as a family event where some people are in the shade and others are inside or in direct sun. I can of course make it work, but doing so takes me 30 sec or so in some cases by which time the shot is no longer available. I always shoot in RAW so I guess I could just get close, but it seems like letting the camera set the exposure and then using EC when necessary is faster.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / DOF FF vs Crop...

The way I understand it FF gives you a smaller DOF at the same focal length. So if I zoom to 17mm on my crop body and to 28mm on my FF camera, giving them effectively the same field of view, the FF will have a shallower DOF?

EOS Bodies / 7D Sensor...

I have the 7D and really like the camera. I only wish it did better in low light. I feel like this model should perform better in IQ and low light performance compared to the rebels. Now I realize you get the magnesium body, higher fps and better focusing system. But it has always seemed a little wrong that the 7D and maybe the 60D weren't more of a step up from the rebels. Maybe one or both should have gotten a slightly bigger sensor.

Does anyone else agree?
