You forgot the part about installing 500MB updates to the Genuine Microsoft Shutter App (tm) after logging in...

This is going to appear as part of the new user interface on the 7D2.

It will greatly simplify taking pictures.

Turn on 7D2
wait 8 minutes for it to finish booting up
log in with user id
wait another minute
select camera app, click on "yes, I am sure that I wish to allow this program to make changes to camera"
wait for camera app to load
click on "use previous camera settings"
click on focus
click on shutter
click on "yes, I wish to store picture"
select directory
enter file name or click on default
click on "Yes, I wish to store (filename) in (directory)
enter administrator authorization password

and that's all!

Hehe, well said!

A lot of shots seem to have a bluish cast. i'm much more impressed with the output of the nikon 3200 which is > $200 cheaper than the SL1

Yeah, let's compare a handful of shots taking by iraikov and his girlfriend while they were walking around town learning the new camera, to a bunch of shots that Nikon France contracted with professionals to produce. No doubt culled from thousands that were taken and post-processed by folks who do that sort of thing for a living.

Thanks! Yes, EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II, forgot to mention that in my excitement :-) Next on the agenda is some photography at night or in difficult light conditions, I will share some high ISO shots and will play around with the noise reduction.

The shots look good, man. Did you use the kit lens? This crowd would like to see some ISO 800,1600,3200, and 6400 shots with out noise reduction if you get the chance.

Yes, indeed it was a bit hazy yesterday, and I should have mentioned that these photos were taken with the EF-S 18-55 kit lens (and auto white balance).

My impression is that the X7 auto white balance is more accurate than that of the 7D, particularly with artificial light, but I have not yet had the chance to take photos in difficult light conditions.

Looks like it was a cloudy day and the white balance was a bit off, but that's easily fixable.  I agree, I like those particular shots from the D3200 more, but only because they are better shots overall, not because of a massive difference in IQ.

Hello,

   I just bought the EOS Kiss X7 (Rebel SL1/100D) for my girlfriend, and today we took some photos with it for the first time. I have uploaded some samples here: https://picasaweb.google.com/112011848694712498567/TakingOutTheEOSX7ForTheFirstTime?authuser=0&feat=directlink.

Although I have an EOS 7D, I found the X7  to have extremely good ergonomics despite the much smaller size. The body is quite well made and just feels natural and comfortable. The touch screen interface is intuitive and everything makes sense if you have already used an EOS system. I must say I am really impressed with the capabilities of this little camera.

I have always imagined that Emil of Lönneberga lives in a house like this :-)
