For one thing, the 1D4 is more suitable for indoor sports where I could use the 10fps and shoot wider with a 70-200.  I don't pay as much attention to IQ as I do to my ability to capture properly framed moments and money shots.  I would typically shoot a 1D4/70-200 and a 7D2/24-70 for those.  For theater work, a 5D3/24-70f4 and 7D2/24-70f2.8 suits me well.

The people who should review cameras should be those whose needs fit the camera.  If the reviewer does what I want to do, then there is credibility there.  I'm not interested in making images Martinsen has posted on his portfolio blog so what he has to say means nothing to me.  The 7D2 is not for him.  I have the 5D3/1D4/7D2 combination and I use them according to my needs.  Each has their advantages and disadvantages and not one will do everything exceptionally.  Find something that suits your needs and produces the images you want and who cares what others say.  You are the best judge of the equipment.  Rather than reading a myriad of reviews, rent the camera for a few days and decide.

Try taking that battery our of the rotation. The flash is powered by all 4 batteries in series so the current drain should pass through all 4 batteries.  You can check each battery's voltage before putting them into a charger.  Got a voltmeter?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 6D & 1.4X -or- 7D Mk II?

I don't think he's saying that he's using the 85/50mm with a 1.4x but my guess is that you can use it if you put an extension tube in between the lens and extender

Wouldn't an extension tube prevent focusing at infinity?  Non-AF?

I would recommend the 6D over any crop camera for all pursuits except for tiny songbirds.

As an owner of numerous Canon crop cameras the last decade, the IQ IMHO lost something with the start of the 7D. The images just look "rough" compared to Canon's FF offerings. I have also experience increased focus inconsistency with the 1.6x high megapixel sensors.

The 300 prime is amazing on FF. Also, IMHO, using a 1.4x on 50 and 85mm primes is a waste of time, just crop. The 1.4 is brilliant on the 300/F4 on FF, though.

Wait, you can use 1.4X extenders on the 50mm and 85mm?  What's yoursecret?

I had to provide proof of liability insurance for my son's wedding reception venue and I was just requested to provide one for my daughter's

Most venues require liability insurance in case guests damage private property.  The wedding party provides that insurance.  You have to document the incident and the bridal party's insurance should cover damage done by an inebriated guest.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D Mark II with selector dial mod
« on: October 30, 2014, 07:37:04 PM »
I saw this on an auction while preparing to sell my 5D2.  Does Canon really do this mod?

"For sale used canon eos 5d mark II is in good perfect condition, selector dial lock modified
like the 5d mark III , by canon. "
