EOS Bodies / Re: 7D Mark II Video Tested By Gizmodo
« on: September 18, 2014, 05:42:59 PM »
What exactly are we supposed to see here?  Or want to see?  They all seem pretty identical, the only clue telling otherwise is the slight changes in perspective when switching out cameras.  Is there something missing that a "videographer's camera" would have?

+1. I must be dumb...but I don't get it either :/

How about a return to the APS-H size sensor for the 7D Mk II ?

Canon General / Re: Off Brand: Nikon Announces the D4S

;D  ;D  ;D The only comparison that would be hard for me is Warner Bros vs Disney (Looney Tunes vs. Mickey, Donald, etc) ;D  ;D  ;D
Why so hard? Mickey is better/smarter then Donald ;D ;D ;D
They are both Disney so no comparison! The comparison I mentioned was Warner Bros vs Disney!

Well, Bugs Bunny is clearly smarter than Mickey Mouse...

Maybe, but Mickey does it with Minnie...Grrrrr  ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Not Coming? [CR1]
« on: December 14, 2013, 01:00:45 PM »
Probably has more to do with the Canon 6d reaching the 1500.00 dollar price mark (and sometimes lower).  If the 7d mark ii comes in over that it, it becomes maybe a niche commodity that doesn't sell all that well.  I think the market looks at full frame as the complete item.  The biggest reason for crop was affordability and if it loses that it could be phased out.

My taughts exactly. I beleive that both Nikon (D400) and Canon (7DMk ii) are realising that these models wouldn't sell as much anymore as they could have 3/4 years ago.

I agree with you Rowbear!  Very nicely done and the boat/boater definitely adds to it and gives it a story... I like it a lot! 

Good to see the lowly 7D's are still out there shining and excelling in areas that some say they aren't even made for... Very nice and welcome to the forum!  :D

Btw, you seem to have a couple dust specs toward the top right in the sky field...  ;)

Thanks Ken.  :)

Eeeekk, I have to get it cleaned... again :o

I took this one a while back. I rushed when I saw this gentlemen go by. I think it adds value to the image.

Pardon my ignorance, but is Canon simply playing it safe compared to what ML is doing here, as these acks seem to push the limits of the sensors closer to the edge of reliability ?

For example, I know that the engine in my car (any car for that matter) could produce a lot more power, but for reliability reasons, Toyota is lowering its output to make the engine easier on gas, smoother, etc ?

Lenses / Re: LensRentals.com Tests the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x
« on: June 06, 2013, 05:58:02 PM »
This new zoom lens sure is impressive. What is also impressive is how good the "old" 400 f/5.6 is, especially for the price, but then again, those of us who own it knew that already  ;)

EOS-M / Re: EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Announcement Soon? [CR2]
« on: June 03, 2013, 04:30:19 PM »
I have a M and it's bloody marvellous !  With the 22mm pancake, it's light for hill walking, pictures from it are great, it looks like a cheap compact to a hit and run thief...   And importantly, gets the important capture of your life when the FF + f2.8 is just too heavy or big or expensive looking to carry along.

Canon General / Re: Camera bags inside Versailles
« on: June 01, 2013, 09:45:39 PM »
I didn't go to Versaille, but I did go to the Louvre on my visit to Paris last September, and it was very crowded, as I presume Versaille will be. I agree with mwh1964 about enjoying the sights instead, buying postcards, or using a pocket camera/iphone ( I used my S90). I know its tempting to try and get awesome shots, but its too crowded to allow for that, so its best to leave the heavy gear behind and enjoy the time with your family ;)

Bonus info: My favorite spot to photograph Paris from above (way above) is from the top of La Tour Montparnasse (Tripods are allowed) Best view of Paris. They have designed the roof top as a platform for viewing Paris 360 degree, with protective glass protecting you from the wind, but with openings just for us photogs :) A super quick elevator will take you up. If you've been to the Empire State or Top of the Rock roof tops, its that quick. Make sure to go for the sunset light.

I like your first shot. I visit that spot often in the summer and have talked to this artist many times. He's very interesting.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Transition from Nikon to Canon
« on: February 22, 2013, 08:33:31 AM »
Got to agree that there is no reason to switch systems. Although I prefer the look of Canon files, that's just an opinion and it's personal with no relevance to anyone else. Nikon makes excellent cameras and any of the newest ones will be magnificent. If you want to spend some money on gear, get a camera that matches up with your lenses. This Nikon vs Canon thing is just foolish. If you're not getting good pictures with the camera brand you have, the problem is not the camera.

I had the 50/1.8 and I rather have the 40/2.8 due to the optical quality.

Same here, the 'lil 40 is much better in every way.
