Just had a very quick play with 10. Feels snappier than 9 for sure. I guess I'm in for at least this upgrade cycle.

+1 especially prime. viewpoint 1 is also better than the options available in 9, more accurate. Also the selective Tone seems to have a lot more latitude will have to test that more though,  and the final benefit I can perspective correct big stitches now.

For existing DxO Optics Pro 9 Standard users the upgrade to DxO OpticsPro Elite 10.0 + Dx0 ViewPoint 1.2.1 is £55 ($88)
or to DxO OpticsPro Elite 10.0 + Dx0 ViewPoint 2.51 is £80 ($141)

If 1.2.1 gives the same functionality as is in DxO Optics Pro 9 then sounds fair enough.

EOS Bodies / Re: DPR Adds Studio Samples for EOS 7D Mark II

Anyone know how DPR converted the RAWS? I assume latest DPP but without knowing for sure (and what settings were used) this all seems rather like the initial 5D3 threads, inaccurate.

A photo of my 7DmkII

What are the first settings you plan to change? I turned the "beep" off first then set it to shoot only RAW.

My first photo was of a white orchid against a cream background indoors. All settings were on auto, ISO came out at 6400, F5.6 1/400, while it is a shot my 5Dmk3 could take with acceptable noise the 7Dmk2 could not cut it. However this is not my camera for low light I just wanted to see how it coped.

Using a Komputer Bay CF 128GB 1066x UDMA7 card I shot 28 RAW pictures before the buffer hiccuped. The battery is now flat but I have a second charging, when that is done I will head out to take some action shots.

Arrrgghhh... I'm at work can't get on to flicker, thanks for posting though will enjoy tonight

Regards

Got mine already.....battery on charge.

Yes but it's pitch black in the UK and there are limits to the high ISO performance ;D

Moons out  :P

Just a thought, if your not going to be taking many (not your fav style) why not use your 40 pancake and stitch, you can get surprisingly good results and really good pano software is really cheap!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Vertical shooting focusing?
« on: October 26, 2014, 05:21:54 AM »
On both cameras?

Are you using different focus point options for horz and vert? My experience going from 500d to 7d is quite the opposite, way more keepers in vert than I was previously getting.

The new 100-400 ain't gonna come cheap!
You may want to consider the efs pancake as a body cap and great little street walkabout to save a little initially

Edit: I don't mean as a replacement for the 100-400 obviously!   ;D  ;D  ;D

Appologies if I'm not picking you up correctly here but when I plug my 7D into my PC (USB cable) it just appears in Explorer and I can copy files, no software installed. The only annoyance is that it's USB2.

Regards

Really? Nothing installed from the EOS Solutions disc? No Lightroom, Photoshop or any other cataloging type software?
I briefly had a Rebel years back, did not show in explorer without software, same with my current 6D.

I'm intrigued to learn that the 7D shows as a removable drive. Can you copy other, non-image files to the camera, use the camera like a very expensive thumb drive?
Canon, what's up with that? Some models do, others don't??

Not as a removable drive, as a folder, at work, can't remember the exact bit of the tree it's under. Will have a look tonight and post back better details. Windows 8.1 may have something to do with it.

Regards
