EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: EOS 7D mk2 or 5D mk3
« on: October 12, 2014, 06:19:44 PM »
I'm waiting for the 7Dll to be released and tested by consumers. I think 5DlV is in the near future. It may be the first
Full frame camera to get dual pixel AF like 70D and 7 Dll.

My 7D is still taking pics that blow me away. I feel I can post my regrets that the 7Dll doesn't have WiFi without someone lumping me in with Trolls. I can't say I won't upgrade,but will wait and see. The7Dll looks to be an amazing camera. I may end up with a bad case of camera envy!

I really think this and a swivel touch screen should be features of the 7Dll. I'm sticking with my 7D till one of us drops.

I use a canvas carrier that came with a portable lawn chair. It's not great but it works. It isn't padded so I am careful
Not to bang my tripod into things.

Kitties love to chase Lasers and String! 7Dll is released, YEAH!!!  I look forward to the reviews. I won't buy unless my 7D gets damaged. I guess if I wan't WiFi and swivel LCD I'll have to borrow my wife's 70D. I've been reading about the 7Dll since I got up. ( not counting the posts in the months before it's release) Now I can do something productive like go take pics of my cat.  ;D

No built in WiFi! Seems to be a big omission of me. The 7Dll should be as astounding a camera upgrade was the 7D was in 2009. Why put it in 70D and not 7Dll? No articulating screen! I'm glad I'm happy with my 7D. I will save money and keep honing my skills.

EOS Bodies / Re: Are you planning to purchase a 7D2
« on: August 27, 2014, 05:10:56 PM »
I use my pics from my 7D as my screen saver and am sometimes in awe at what I see. The camera takes amazing
Pics as long as there is sufficient light. If the camera won't take a pic because of low light, I use my 580EXll. I look
Forward to the 7Dll as it should better than the 7D. I won't be buying one.

Canon General / Re: A Rundown of EOS 7D Mark II Information
« on: August 16, 2014, 06:43:15 AM »
My 7D doesn't have WiFi. If you want to use an iPad to operate a camera that doesn't have WiFi buy a CamRanger or
one of the other devices that creates it's own WiFi Zone. I installed EOS Utility on my iPad Air and if I go into my wife's
70D's Menue and turn on WiFi shooting, then I can operate her 70D with my iPad. I feel Canon should include WiFi in
all of the new cameras. It's not a deal breaker for me. I am not ready to part with my 7D and upgrade yet. Maybe a FF
is my future camera. I look forward to new announcements. I just spent my 7Dll Money on my Car. I need it to go out
and about so I can take pics. ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D now marked as DISCONTINUED at Amazon
« on: July 28, 2014, 06:40:56 AM »
It's getting painful reading everyones post on the  continuous saga of the 7D Mark ll.'s release date. Relief Date for me.
I'm still enjoying my 7D. Did everyone else's suddenly die? Or explode? I'm going out and take some pics later today.
My wife will be using her 70D and me with my discontinued 7D. As long as i'm not discontinued, I'll be fine and so will
the pics from my 7D if I follow the rules of good photo shooting that I have learned since I bought my 40D in March 2008.

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II [CR1]
« on: July 13, 2014, 12:30:36 AM »
All Canon has to do is make this new 100-400 take sharper pics with improved coatings, better IS, faster focussing and zoom. They will sell a ton of these as the old 100-400 sells well as is. My 100-400 suits me just fine and is on my 7D  when I leave the house and I know BIF pics are on the menu.  ;D

CR3 makes this a real possibility. Better Dynamic Range and Dual pixel focus with swivel screen like the 70D makes
the 7D ll a possible purchase for me. I really am impressed with some of my pics taken with my 7D so will wait till
the reviewers declare the 7D ll a necessary upgrade. :)

Photography Technique / Re: Taking HDR shots
« on: June 30, 2014, 06:00:13 AM »
Leadfingers after you have your 3 exposures you can open them up in PS and Automate>Merge to HDR Pro. Try not to go to Extremes and over cook your images and you will avoid harsh results that some people like or that is the best they can do. I did one in PS CS 3 that turned out nice. I haven't tried Lightroom 5 or Elements 12 or CS 5 because I
don't do very many HDRs. If you have a program that can merge exposures then use it or treat each exposure as a new
layer and drag one on top of the other holding down the Shift Key to keep them aligned. Good Luck!
Try a web search "Merge to HDR" and you will have enough information to become an expert in HDR.

I didn't upgrade when PS CS6 was available. OOPS! I was able to buy Lightroom 5 and PS Elements 12. I used Elements 12 today to print a 4X6 print and I am quite happy with it. It cost me almost $250.00 to buy. I wonder how long at 9.99 I will break even. I can still use my PS CS 5 if need be. Worse scenario would be me using DPP to make a TIFF of my pics and use Elements to resize and print my pics. I will have to learn how to print using DPP then if I can't buy Elements or Lightroom, I won't care. ;D I figure it will take about 23 months to break even.

Get the 70D now and don't worry about the 7D ll when it comes out. In the spring of 2010 the 7D cost $2,200.00 Cdn
Body only. I bought mine late July 2012 just before the firmware 2.0 was released for $1,549.00 Cdn Body only. If you save money put it towards a 100-400 vs ll when it comes out. A guy I know has the 70D and 100-400 vs l and takes great pics of birds with this combo using a Better Beamer on his flash. The 7D ll may blow the 70D away when it comes out. But that's just another rumour. Buy the 70D now and you will know it pretty well before your trip.

Lenses / Re: What was your first L lens?
« on: June 07, 2014, 03:47:43 AM »
The 70-200 f4 IS USM and a 1.4 ll Extender came first and after buying a 2X ll Extender I researched and bought the 100-400 L. The 70-200 hasn't seen any use and the 100-400 is mounted on my 7D when we go out to shoot BIF. My wife wants to try the 70-200 on her 70D, so I'm sure she will use it a lot. Maybe not with an Extender. My next L might be one of the 16-35's depending on the reviews the new f4 gets and if I go FF.
