Greetings,,, Sorry if I have missed this in this long thread, but has there been any mention of a time frame for availablity? I see Adorama and B&H offering pre-orders, just wondering how much longer we will hae to wait?
Stated arrival is November 17th
When was the last time that we had two sensors having the exact same MP resolution but were "different " ?
I'm afraid it looks like the 7D II will have the 70D sensor . The 70D sensor is pretty good though, its just that we are expecting two sensor revolutions in two years ..which is incredibly rare.
Agreed. I know everyone (including me) hopes that the 7DX will have some jaw-dropping sensor tech, but the 7D and 60D shared the same 18MP sensor. The differentiation that justified the price difference was AF system, FPS, buffer depth, weather sealing and build quality.
Why should we expect the next generation of each camera to have a different relationship to one another? It would be unusual for Canon to make a "successor" to the 7D that was positioned differently in the market. Not saying it can't happen -- just saying it seems most likely that the positioning of the two products in relation to one another continues.
The 7DX uses the same sensor as the 70D and continues the differentiation with beefy AF system, FPS, buffer depth and even more solid build. Seems predictable to me. Of course, it's the predictability that gets so many shorts in a twist on this forum...
Only a little. The 7DII sensor is quite good, I'm rarely limited by low-ISO DR, and Canon could potentially use the same sensor and still improve IQ by improving off-sensor electronics and/or using some tricks associated with the dual pixel architecture of that sensor.
I got a second one last year $79 after the $300 rebate and free 13x19 paper. I mainly got it for the ink as I already have a Pro-100 that I am using. I might get another (3rd) Pro-100 for again, just the ink and paper. What to do with the two spare machines?
It does print very well and the glossy on the Pro Platinum paper is the best I have ever seen. I was lucky to pick up a 8 free packs of Pro Platinum 8.5x11 size when purchasing one pack direct from Canon last year too. Not sure why they had the fire sale on the paper. But I have more paper than ink at this point. :-)
They'll give printers away to sell ink.
Can't remember the last time (or ever) they sold large format printers for super low prices. I'd say that your argument is invalid.
The fact that they've not done it before with this format printer hardly makes the observation invalid. Printer companies have frequently given printers away counting on future ink sales where margins are huge.
Anyway, I just ordered one through B&H, essentially the same deal. The $300 rebate is not precisely "cash back." You get a $300 valued American Express card to use -- apparently no way to get cash per se.
The B&H guy told me best results have been reported with the Pro Platinum paper.
Under whats included on Adorama and B&H, it says "Introductory Ink Cartridges" and on Amazon is says "Setup Ink Tanks", so are you getting your monies worth for these cartridges?
... I don't think these documents should be released, its a dangerous game and I don't think CR has the money or the power to fight a big corporation like Canon ... but be my guest and prove me wrong.I'm with you - it is a risky endeavour to release NDA'd or internal documents.
Technically there should be a legal issue only for the person that sends/steals them. If you have no agreement with Canon, you're not a Canon employee, etc.. There should be no obligation for you to keep them secret. Unless Canon publicly disclaims their genuineness and sues you for diffamation.
