I dunno. What is a reasonable definition of a troll?

Im Not disputing this.  But to answer your question my definition would include all of the people who are rude and aggressive towards others, those who put down when they have nothing constructive to say or don't like an opinion that does not match their own.

I agree to a certain point Canon1, but the OP was definitely inappropriate with his ranting and bitching so he deserves some of it.

When you enter someone's home for the first time, don't come in bitching and complaining!!

You live here?   ;D

Wow.  The only thing worse than the OP's rant was the way he was treated.  Flat out insults directed towards him and even his photographs.

Well to be honest CR is not the most friendly photography forum on the Internets Tubes... especially for people just starting out in photography.

There is a lot of good information on CR, but there are some more prolific posters here that could use a human communication course (or ten).

Agree with both of you. There is definitely a herd mentality here that particularly feeds off of pointing out the (perceived) shortcomings of others. Lots of good info here if you can wade through the trash talk. I wish the mods would reel in those who constantly become aggressive and trashy here. Not ban them, just get the message through that this is supposed to be a constructive photography (canon or whatever) community first and foremost.

Good stuff. I think is prefer my wimberley. One head that does it all (when paired with a leveling base). Holds my big glass and smoothly pans and tilts... And is an exceptional pano rig. Especially when shooting two rows of images horizontally.

Now would be a good time for some high ISO 7d ii RAW files to play around with.  8)

I'm a wildlife photographer and shoot "wild" wildlife. No zoos or captive animals. I've spooked many animals with the should of the mirror slapping even on silent mode. I'd love a truly silent operating camera.... However I also would like an OVF.

There is still a shutter in many of the mirrorless cameras.  My Nex6 is louder than my 6D.  So you also need some type of fully electronic shutter to get silent shooting.

No kidding.  I assumed that there was not.  I have never looked seriously at a mirrorless system so don't know jack about it other than what I have read here and there.  My primary objection is the poor AF of canon...  I'm heavily invested in Canon Long Glass so not open to getting into another system.

This could be a pretty good forum if it weren't for the idiots. I don't find this funny. Anyone else?

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II: More High ISO Samples
« on: September 28, 2014, 01:33:45 PM »
I don't care how accurate the focus is if the RAW file is noisy at 1600 ISO and higher. Cleaning the noise will reduce the sharpness, so what good is it?

I disagree.  I'd rather have in focus shots with noise to deal with over out of focus shots that had nice clean shadows.  From a high ISO perspective, if this camera is what the 5D3 is to the 5D2, then I think it will be a substantial upgrade.  Luminance noise is far easier to clean up in post and for me the 5D3 produced usable images at higher ISO than it's predecessor.

EOS Bodies / Re: My theory for the tepid response
« on: September 28, 2014, 01:28:28 PM »
I'm waiting for the test images from DP Review.  I always compare the crop sensor images with my current main camera, the 5D3, using the DP Review image comparison widget.

Don't hold your breath.  It's been about 3 years since the 1DX was announced and they still have not taken test images for the widget or done a review on it.  The 7DIII might be available by the time they get around to it. 

Personally, I don't think that the response is all that tepid.  There are just a few individuals who go for every opportunity to bash this camera that they have never even seen yet.  I believe that those of us who are looking forward to this excellent camera (as a compliment to my FF 5D3 in my case) don't really care about arguing with those who have endless air for baseless complaining.  While they continue to wear out their keyboards about how the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, we will be in the field producing excellent quality images with the POS cameras we stupidly purchased.

These images have been floating around for almost 2 weeks now.  Add them to the pile of worthless jpgs that do very little to reveal what the actual IQ of this camera is at high ISO.  We won't be able to come to any substantive conclusions without RAW files.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Why haven't you left canon?
« on: September 26, 2014, 10:14:41 PM »
No reason to. I like the ergonomics of canon, the glass selection and the iq is spectacular. You can't tell what camera was used when viewing an image so why would I think that switching brands would make my photography any better. I just love getting out with my camera... It's the experiences that matter to me, and the satisfaction of bringing home quality images is icing on the cake.

Lenses / Re: Canon 600mm f/4L IS II USM Purchase

The only way to really save on these VII big whites are either refurb or used. It's unlikely that you will find a rebate or sale price in the near future. If you are in no rush at all for this lens... What compels you to "need" one?

If saving some money is a factor for you, you could by a VI lens for thousands less... And for the type of shooting you described doing... Would be more than capable.

Nothing to see here folks... no new news...
Not sure about that - I hadn't seen the mention of it having interchangeable viewfinder screens before this story.

Are you talking about the interchangeable focusing screen?  If so its been on canons website since the announcement.... http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eos_7d_mark_ii#Specifications
I hadn't taken the time to read through all the specs - it's not the most exciting activity...

True...  But dpreviews article isn't any more enlightening... Which was my point. Can't wait for some real reviews on this camera though. I suspect that the improvement in color noise will make for very useable images at higher ISO. Other 5d3 was a major improvement over the 5d2 in this respect.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: POLL: What's more important, gps or wifi?

I don't need either. In fact, I'd rather my camera not have GPS or wifi.
