Here's a new set of 7D2 samples posted at DP Review:

Thanks RLPhoto & privatebydesign for posting the definitions and commentary.Hyper sync - long duration flash over the entire curtain movementAgree on all counts, I'd just point out the often overlooked problem with flash duration and power output for "True high sync speeds", at this point in time full power flash pulses are not that fast, the Einstein for instance, which is often used as a perfect example of short flash duration, has a full power discharge duration of 1/588 of a second, and when we are opening up our lenses for narrow dof and balancing ambient and flash that full power can easily be used.
True high sync speeds - standard sync method but @ above 1/250th. (Which is still the best and most efficient but expensive.)
HSS - pulsed flash over the duration of the curtain movement.
We really need to stop calling lights with long durations and tuned to cover the time the shutter blades are exposing the sensor HSS, the two work in a fundamentally different way, long duration is not HSS, and both cost a massive amount of power.Hah! Interesting point. HSS...strictly technically no but practically yes. What is it that defines "true HSS"?
I read Syl Arena's Speedliter's Handbook recently and he says, I believe, that he has 12 speedlites, and his mentor Joe Mcnally, has 17. You get when you need, I don't think there is such a thing as too many...Can you imagine the attention to detail required setting up 12 let alone 17 Speedlights? And the lack of flexibility? For certain projects you'd certainly get a unique look.
The Anti-Flicker mode will be a game changer for lots of photographers, not least corporate shooters who spend a lot of time in fluoro lit office locations....This camera is a sports/bif dream if you ask me....A "game changer" for bif and wildlife? - I've taken tens of thousands of shots with my 7D and NONE of them were under fluorescent lights.
And the anti-flickering mode for fluorecent light? Are you kidding me? That is a game changer...
Not quite with you there Keith...where's the troll?What an odd thread. Anyway...
Trolls gonna troll, to use an apposite Americanism...
The reason that Canon users use Canon needs no explanation: we use it because it does the job, and does it fantastically well.
The 5D3 specs make it a highly useful and relevant tool for wedding and event photographers, no question. Obviously the feature set makes it useful and relevant for all sorts of other photographers as well. I saw Unfocused's post, in the context of this thread being a comment that wedding and event photographers probably don't need more megapixels, indeed, more megapixels may be more of a hindrance than a help especially when you're potentially shooting thousands of frames per event/function. That's a lot of data to manage.The 5D III was targeted to wedding and event photographersSeriously? I'm neither and it's worked out well for me so far.
Is that from official marketing materials/press releases, or your opinion?
I'm genuinely asking.
no ODS?Where did you read that?
The 24-70mm MKI is also a good design with its reverse zoom, more protection better hood...
