EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 70d for stills - IQ Improvement ?
« on: July 02, 2013, 06:56:12 PM »
There are no images yet from a production camera, but you can be pretty certain that ordinary images will be the same.
The advanced features are the upgrade points.  Better autofocus,  much faster liveview focus, wifi, touch screen, and the much faster and more powerful Digic 5+ processor.  It also takes SDXC UHS-1 cards which write at twice the speed.  This is a sore point with the slow cards.
Unless these features are more important to you than the $$$, invest the savings in a 60D and put it into a good lens.
Still, with no AFMA, I'll be passing it up.

In Canon's official announcement they state it has AFMA.

Use the software that came with the camera (canon EOS utility) and use a mini usb to the camera and a normal usb back to laptop.  That will allow you to do remote (still wired) camera shooting using your laptop.  I use it for image playback when messing around with a photobooth.

The tokina 11-16 is also a very nice lens on crop (as well as their 16-28 on full).  Its also build like a tank.

I use the L358 with the pocket wizard adapter.  I find it extremely use full for light set ups.  I also use it for when wedding ceremonies end up with the bride and groom in shadows under a tree and the rest of the ceremony under full sun.  Its very useful when scouting locations with mixed lighting and/or low light and can quickly jot those numbers down instead of getting lots of gear out.

I second the idea of maybe looking at the 60d if you don't worry as much about the weather sealing (even though I accidentally left the 60d outside in a light rain on a time lapse and it survived).  I feel the actual image quality difference is negligible between that and the 7d (especially at higher ISO).  I've used mine for paid shoots and adding a grip gives it a nice feel regardless of the plastic change from 50d.  I feel like too many people dump on the 60D but I feel like its a nice option.  Of course if price wasn't an option I would have chosen the 7d straight out due to the additional features but at the time the 600 dollar difference made the decision easier.
