EOS Bodies / Re: High Megapixel Camera Coming in 2015 [CR3]
« on: December 17, 2014, 01:27:26 PM »
Well for me... I have an SL1 on my belt, a 7D2 for sports/wildlife/BIF and a 5D3 for landscapes/portraits/low light and everything else.... not clear to me why I would buy a 50MP camera (just landscapes???)

Some of my buddies that shoot the Nikon have complained about their 36MP camera in that their Computer bogs down with so much info (think Raw file size) ... almost all have had to then go out and buy bigger/faster computers for PP and storage!  Something else to consider! :P

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7d mk2 seems very soft?
« on: November 06, 2014, 06:51:50 PM »
I've got the original 7D and the 5DIII.  I hated the 7D after I got the 5D, it was way soft.  But I played around with the in camera settings and found that the 7D wasn't sharpening as much as the 5D when shooting jpegs (which I do exclusively; I know, I know, but that's how I roll).

I liked the 7D quite a bit better after upping the sharpening.

Hey....Luckydude
                                  .... exactly what did you do to the settings to up the sharpening????
Thanks.

Another issue.... many of the early supplies were "kits only".... so a lot of us have to wait for the "bodies only" boxes to arrive. My supplier, "Samy's"/California, USA have the kits now, but no "body only" boxes. Hopefully they will get a body only box in quickly or break up a kit for me either tomorrow or Saturday. :'(

Fantastic! Now I hope my local store, Samy's get their share. I am number 3 on their list! :) :) :)

I pre-ordered and they said 27 Nov as the release date... That's Thanksgiving Day in USA. Preordered from a local camera store (Samy's) to keep some of $$$ in town lest we lose that like we did the Big Box Bookstores!

Harv....

Consider buying a cheap desktop to install your 7DII s/w and other non-Vista compatible programs on. Not sure where you are, but, here in the states you can get a Windows 8 Machine ...desktop... plus extra RAM and a decent HD for well under $600-700 USD... this is just the unit/mouse/keyboard. Very small footprint... keep your old machine & monitor (buy a switch to go back and forth between new/old computer and the monitor) and migrate over your Programs to the new machine over the course of several/many months... a little at a time. If nothing else, you'll be establishing another backup path and have something in case your old machine really craps out or if your new machine develops a problem.

Go back and forth between machines using USB keys and/or emailing yourself  ;)

Regarding a good copy of a lens. How do you know how good or bad your lens is unless you had a good lens to compare it to sitting right next to it? Do full service camera stores have the capability to test and adjust a lens? How do you know it isn't the camera?

EOS Bodies / Re: No EOS-1D X Replacement in 2014 [CR2]

Not spring. Canon has to milk buyers with the 7D2 for a year or so. If they released 5D4 with 7D2's AF feature in spring (5 months after 7D2 got released (not introduced)), who would buy the 7D2, if the 5D4 offers same or even tweaked AF with slightly lower frame, but better IQ?

I find it strange they haven't introduced a new rebel yet. It's been 18 months now.

I disagree with you on this point.

Those looking only for one camera, namely a 7D2, are not the target market for a 5D4. One is 2x the price of the other. However, those dropping 3600 for a 5D4 can also afford the 1800 for a 7D2. Also, they are two totally different formats/tools (crop&speed vs. full-frame&sensitivity). The extra reach of crop, vs. the creative capabilities of full-frame are huge factors to many pro buyers that cannot be ignored; saying it is just speed vs. slightly better IQ is an oversimplification of what the two bodies offer.

In short, the 7D2 won't effect sales of a 5D4. Buyers on a budget looking for one camera will get a 7D2. Pros with the budget for a 5D4 will either get only a 5D4, or both a 5D4 and a 7D2. They are a dangerous (ie, perfect) pairing.
