EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II Test Camera [CR1]

This does sound as the 70D to me... then I would be happy.

Plus 1 too...   The 7DII needs to be more than this, fine with resolution stated, fine also with wifi and gps built in (easy extra sales point = higher price = higher profit margin = keep selling cameras) the AF needs to be top notch for crop at 40+ points, otherwise, the real game changer can only by the performance of the sensor which in my opinion, needs to outperform the lesser crop models, not recycle the same tech.

7DII having more pro features. ?

Such as ?

Software & Accessories / Re: B&W vs Dorr ND1000 Colour Cast

Used my Dorr ND1000 filter today, the results in the camera were most definately neutral heading towards a cold colour cast - very pleased with the outcome, also used my B&W ND1000 and that still gives a warm brown cast.

Dorr filter is 82mm on my 16-35mm, B&W filter is 72mm on my 135mm L so like for like isn't quite possible, but will post the difference as soon as I've got them developed in Lightroom.

If budget is a problem, why not consider the 135mm f2 or 200mm f2.8 primes - not as flexible, but I used to get good crops from my 135L on my old 450D - it's easy to say 70-200 f2.8 IS when it's not your own cash - search around for a local specialist photography shop too, most sell second hand and the 135/200mm primes do sometimes come up for sale.

Where's the problem here - new small camera to extend the popularity of the EOS brand - ideal for parents to buy their kids, ideal for people with small hands, ideal as a starter camera to tie new buyers into the EOS system.

It will create more profit for Canon to keep the shareholders happy and reinvest in development - a win-win situation in my book.

Software & Accessories / B&W vs Dorr ND1000 Colour Cast
« on: March 18, 2013, 05:22:48 PM »
Had a 72mm B&W ND1000 filter for a long while now, well from when they where the only ND1000 filters available in the UK.  I've always found it gave a brown colour cast on my 450D, but not yet tried it on my 6D, so can't say if the same is true there.  I've now a requirement for an 82mm ND1000 filter, so thought I'd give a Dorr one a try, I've ordered, it's in the post, but out of interest, has anyone used a Dorr ND1000 filter, what's the colour cast on Canon sensors and also, does colour cast vary from sensor to sensor within a camera range ?

LP-12 battery ?  Same as EOS-M

Mirrorless maybe ?

Exactly my point - the flip side is that I could just buy another crop camera and add a 18-200

To be fair, it's not always about getting the best possible photo - sometimes you need the flexibility of superzooms and are happy to put up with their short comings.

Full frame super zooms are a rare beast - it's odd that the only L option is the silly sized 28-300mm which isn't really a walk around lens - only alternatives are older stuff like the 28-135 mm which isn't really a wide a range as what's offered on the EF-S range, where you get the 18-135 and 18-200 (which is like having 29-216 & 29-320mm in your hands)

I'd say that there is a market now with the entry level 6D for a range of L superzooms, giving for example a 20-135mm, 24-200mm (black) and continue the 28-300mm product, probably all retaining a variable f stop, with prices at say £600-800 range for the two newer models, maybe with last gen IS ?

Canon M100 perhaps ?  A mirrorless DSLR wannabe ?   Circa £800 ?

Could I ask what software you used ?

...also, given the fabulous results, any chance of a quick tutorial ?

Canon General / Re: Which eye do you shoot with?
« on: March 13, 2013, 05:54:53 PM »
I'm practically blind in my right eye, so need to use my left eye which makes using the buttons, wheels and such on the back of the camera a pain and my nose is always banged up against the back of the camera - left dominant camera would be a godsend for me ! 

Although, I am right handed !

Lenses / Re: DPReview: Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II Review
« on: March 12, 2013, 07:35:50 AM »
I just have this feeling that after getting the 24-70 II, I really won't use the 24-105L at all...and if that's going to be the case, why not get the new zoom that much sooner?

I'm sat here at the moment just thinking about the 24-70mm 2.8 II - I've still to sell my 10-22mm which was replaced by the 16-35mm on the 6D, I'm not using the 70-300mm since I bought the 135mm - cropping into a shot taken on the 135mm really is better than anything taken on the 70-300mm (non L) and then pondering about would I really use my 50mm 1.4mm if I got the 24-70 ?  Probably less, if at all... 

Need to stop looking at these threads, ou guys are costing me serious money ;-)

Do you have two 5DIII's and a 7D ?  Or one of each ?

I found the 135L a tad too long on crop for indoors hall/church work, but epic on my 6D - so perhaps a 24-70 2.8 on the 5DIII and a 85mm (either) on the 7D to give you a "crop" 135mm

Off topic and not often mentioned, but my 135L was great on my crop 450D at air shows.
