EOS Bodies / Re: Is Canon now two generations behind Nikon?

Perhaps this "new technology" in 7D mk2 sensor can also mean different layout in sensor circuitry? Hopefully that would lead to lower noise.
I read somewhere that Canon sensor itself is not inferior to Sony offerings in sensitivity, but reading signals from sensor introduces significant noise, and that explained slightly higher noise in 7D compared to 60D with same sensor.

1)  Northrup's "sports test" was a joke.  Heck, even his wife (? I assume she is) called it a 'moving portrait'.  As I stated, a ~60% hit rate in that scenario is ridiculously low – something I'd expect even an entry-level dSLR to beat in that 'test'.  It's already been pointed out that he had a setting enabled which Canon warns against using with moving subject. 
That guy shamelessly admits inability to use proper settings on Canon, and sells it as a Canon fault.
If some of you are unaware, he also uses psychological salesman tricks. Entire video is made in a manner of shopping channel, like it's all scripted.
Guy has a role as knowlegeable expert.
Girl has a role of an observer waiting for answer, someone with whom viewer should identify. She gets convinced, that's that.
"How can you not agree with her you weirdo?"

1.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VR7Kjeq2aH4 with links to samples and additional info /main points. more accurate and flexible
What was that? Why did he waited with that comparison so long?
Why didn't he warned us about this Nikon being better back in 2012?
.... oh.

My idea for going FF is "only if I'll start earning money with it". Money, not pennies. ;)
Currently I have 60D.
I had EF-S 17-85, replaced with 15-85 as walkaround and gained significant IQ (especially with DLO in DPP)
Also had EF 28/1.8, but Sigma happened.
Two months with Sigma 18-35/1.8 now, and I can live peacefully without FF. ;)

"Fine detail"... Maybe it's 80 (or much more) mpix chip, with each pixel read from 4 pixels on chip? No need for AA then.

All "proofs" and "inconsistiencies" suggesting that Moon landing was fake, are forgery themselves.
Considering the forum, a "spotlight" theory and "astronauts weren't photogtaphers" should be especially easy to laugh at. ;)

I guess he wasn't taking enough pictures of her. Plain and simple.

Antireflection coatings between layers. Sounds nice.  ;D
I was kinda hoping for optical resonance layers technology.  :-X

You might start by explaining WHAT you mean by 'two stops of IQ advantage'.  Two stops more DR?  Two stops less noise?
Too late. You should have asked about 'ISO performance' ;)
A: Two stops less noise.

Aren't you triggering "troll alert"?

Quote from: neuroanatomist
As for sharpness, while it's true that a multilayer sensor wouldn't need the blurring caused by an AA filter to avoid color moiré, that blurring is predictable and thus highly correctable with sharpening in post, so the true gain in sharpness is minor at best.
Not true. "No AA" picture can still be corrected/sharpened better than picture "with AA". Multilayer without AA can be sharpened/"regenerated" even further.

Multilayer sensor technology alone should have two stops of IQ advantage over bayer matrix, plus additional sharpness without AA.

I don't understand this statement....are you saying that the extra two stops of exposure latitude will improve per pixel sharpness? I'm not sure I quite understand?
???
And I don't understand where did you get yours. Let's repeat: MULTI LAYER sensor.
Better sharpness will not come from better ISO performance. Sharpness and ISO performance will come together from multi-layer sensor. Do I have to explain HOW?

I suspect/hope for:
- 5 layer sensor with phase AF capability APS-C w/o AA filter
- 20-24 Mpix
- ca. 10 fps
- VF with >1 magnification, I doubt on hybrid/EVF
- VF AF somewhere between 70D and 5D3

Multilayer sensor technology alone should have two stops of IQ advantage over bayer matrix, plus additional sharpness without AA.
I guess I would be perfectly happy for quite some time with 70D clone featuring multi layer sensor.

I knew what to expect from this thread, but I also suffer this "I saw this 'How I Met Your Mother' episode" hysterical laughter syndrome right now.
"... It's a noble creature" folks :D
I doubt I'll able to say "sorry" :D

Canon General / Re: Why Scott Kelby Switched to Canon
« on: January 21, 2014, 03:15:24 PM »
I also bought Kelby books. Terrible waste of money and paper, that haunts and pains me for a few years already, every time I see trees :'(
Personally I'll try to keep out of my mind that switch.
Could you kindly guide me to a book that you've written on photographic excellence, so I can gain some valuable knowledge.
I could ask the same about books YOU wrote ;)
Anyway I prefer focus on subject, detailed inside-out explanations down to paradoxes that Michael Freeman delivers.

Lenses / Re: Gear Advice foe and awesome Greece trip
« on: August 01, 2013, 06:44:55 AM »
On last trip I got myself a shoulder spider rig intended for DLSR video shooting, but I used it as extra stabilisation for handheld shots when tripod was not an option. I set it up similar to rifle butt.
Downside is that I grabbed much more attention that tripod users.
