EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Not Coming? [CR1]
« on: December 15, 2013, 05:17:20 AM »
Back in February of this year I read an interview that was going around and came to the conclusion that as there was to be a 70D from Canon eventually but no 7Dll. The future of the semi pro camera would be FF. I believe that is still so.

IT might cost more than $1.500.00 but it will still be FF. I don't think Canon would want to sell a camera that would kill 5D mark lll sales.

Lenses / Re: The 100-400 or the 70-200 f2.8 II+2x Mark III for wildlife

I am beginning to think the 2X extender is a thing to be used if it means getting a pic or not. The 1.4 dose not degrade
the pic where the 2X can. I think when the 100-400 is upgraded it will sell better than vs 1 which sells quite well now.
I will probably upgrade to vs ll when it won't cost me too much to trade in my lens for the new one.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon EOS 7D Firmware 2.0.5 Now Available

Thanks FEBS and Reinzphotosfor info about CamRanger. I found info and a price on the web. I will do some more research before I buy. Thank you to DFM about the firmware update messing with Magic Lantern.
Seems like a bad idea for Canon to muck up such a popular program that helps Canon Cameras for free.

I updated to 2.0.3 when it became available. I didn't notice any change, this time I'm going to wait for a while. I thought about getting wifi to control my 7D with an iPad. That would be a reason to buy a Wifi Transmitter and an iPad for myself if I could control the 7D using an iPad if Canon had a program that would work and allow me to do this.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Deal: EOS 70D Body $949 at B&H Photo

Is it worth missing out to save another $100.00? I buy as low as I possibly can. Eventually it's lower after going up from
what I paid. I just say those pics that I took cost me X number of dollars. They are always worth it to me. If I get a huge amount of enjoyment out of the pics that I took, then priceless! Go for it and don't look back.  ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: The Unthinkable: Swapped out 5D3 for 6D
« on: December 04, 2013, 02:37:14 AM »
Up until I finished reading all the responses to your change, I would have thought it was unthinkable and not a good choice. I'm sure you may never look back and regret your decision especially since you now have cash in your camera account for the 5D IV or 7D II. Whatever it is you will be ready. You will advance your skills with the 6D and take some really nice pics in the mean time. Who knows - Maybe the replacement for the 1DX? Keep saving. LOL

EOS Bodies / Re: Black Friday Special: Refurb 7D or 70D NEW
« on: December 01, 2013, 04:06:52 AM »
I wish I had a 5D III. I liked my 40D. My only complaint was I had to sharpen my pics a lot more than I thought was needed. I started getting Error 99 after each shot. I got a message on the LCD telling me to turn off the camera and remove and replace the battery. After much research I decided to put my money towards a 7D in August 2012 when the vs 2 firmware was announced. The 7D was such a step up from the 40D that I started to think my 40D was faulty right out of the box. Smart Sharpening in PS before printing my pics gave me the sharp results I was looking for. I do that to pics from the 7D too, but it is better than the 40D. I would like a 5D III but will have to wait till my 7D dies. We bought my wife a 70D and I think it's a good camera to buy if your upgrading from a Rebel (XXXD) I don't know if the 70D can shoot in AI Servo as well as the 7D or 5D III. My wife is happy to shoot jpegs. I will keep quiet until she starts having problems before I get her to shoot raw. Instead of getting the refurbished 7D get the 70D for your wife or daughter and use it as a second camera with your 5DIII when you need the extra 1.6 reach. Good Luck!

Lenses / Re: looking for feedback on choosing a 70-200 for weddings.
« on: November 28, 2013, 05:20:02 AM »
I have the 70-200 f4 IS USM lens and can safely say to buy the newer 70-200 2.8 IS USM vs II lens. I think everyone responding to your post recommends that lens for weddings. I did a google "The Canon Wedding Lens" because I read somewhere that vs I was called the Wedding Lens. Maybe it was vs I, but vs II blows it out of the water, from what I've read. I want this vs II lens but can't talk the wife into it as I have the f4 lens. I may get the 16-35 2.8 someday. GoodLuck on your decision.

Is this announcement to be repeated over and over like the 7D ll? I'm very interested in both, but can't buy either of them. :(

Here we go again, another 7Dll announcement. I hope it has better ISO 3200 quality performance than the 7D. I was
disappointed with the results from this past weekend. Overcast lighting performance was not as good as the sunny days of
Summer. I will be interested in reading about it but might not be able to buy it as I may spend my money on software.
I need a PS replacement and noise reduction software.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II Spec List Surfaces [CR1]
« on: October 28, 2013, 05:19:31 PM »
I agree with Marsu42. Interesting spec list. There will be a Parade of posts and speculation until Canon makes an announcement which causes a flurry of rants about not enough specs to please the critical few who won't be buying a new camera till H freezes over or their wants are nearly met as these people are never satisfied. I hope the 7D ll is much better than the 70D which is a wonderful camera that my wife loves to use.

Lenses / Re: Old lenses - really so bad?
« on: October 24, 2013, 02:04:00 AM »
Maybe you need a new shop to buy equipment from. The only reason to upgrade lenses is they don't work anymore. I
read that my 7D needs good glass. My 17-85 works fine on the 7D and I don't consider it good glass compared to other
lenses Canon makes. I won't be replacing it as it seems to have improved on the 7D compared to the 40D it came with ;D

I have the 70-200 f4 IS USM lens and used it with the 1.4 Extender vs ll all the time. I used the 2X vs ll and found the  pics to be a bit soft. I could usually sharpen enough in PS and get good prints. Using a tripod and live view worked better but was not as easy as I would have liked. I bought the 100-400 and am extremely happy with the pics I am getting with it on my 7D. I recommend getting the 7D or 70D and the 100-400 zoom. You could then take 2 cameras and use whatever lenses give you the results you are looking for. If you go with the 70-200 and 1.4 Extender you could crop your
pics and get larger images of your subjects. I would try this before you buy a new lens as you may find this gives you the results you are after.

Congrats on the new lens! Don't buy anything that's just for the T3i. Make it something that can be used on your upgraded camera body. Save until you can buy a 5D lll or the next generation 5D. This way you will be shooting professional pics for your paid gigs. You will own quite a few bodies and lenses in your lifetime. I hope you make tons of
money and it becomes a career for you or a very lucrative hobby.

I shoot the best framing I can get in Camera then crop in PS if needed. I will use any means at my disposal to get the printed pic that I want or if I can't then I won't print that pic and will move on to other photos.
I cropped many pics to get what I wanted. Then I bought the lenses that would let me crop in camera the 100L Macro and 100-400L zoom. I still crop. I might own the longest lens Canon makes someday and still find I crop with pics from that lens.  ;D
