Wow, comparing this to the 5D2 is an insult to common sense. I wonder how much they paid him?

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

Canon made a big splash by making the 5DII better than it's price(even the 1Ds III couldn't shoot video like the ol' 5D2).  But Canon probably felt that it hurt sales of the flagship in the long run.
 
It's very possible that they try to play the same trick with the 7DII(as they did for the 5D2).  I think it will be the new "best value" model.  And I think the WOW factor will be bigger than it was for the 5D3.

Some of this corroborates what we've heard before. For example, this does have new video features.  "stills burst". If it is like the v1, than that could mean 30fps of 4K, 14bit raw.

The "stills burst mode" is the most interesting thing here for me. The only question is how long the burst lasts.

The Nikon V1($300) can shoot 4K raw for a second, which makes for some pretty awesome video clips. If they could extend it to 10 seconds (on 7D2), it would be sic.

And some of the posters are giving excellent feedback on the camera itself, but I'm looking at the camera AND what you'll be using it for (which is arguably more important).  You're not doing occasional studio shoots, you're doing real estate videos, which means you'll be shooting a lot and very frequently.  Battery life would also be a big issue in your case, since the internal battery lasts maybe an hour.  Also consider that you won't be shooting real estate videos in 2.5K RAW, it's just going to slow you down way too much, so try and take that spec out of the equation and look at it as just 1080p ProRes.

It won't slow you down too much if you have the hardware to handle it. The hardware is not cheap, but neither is the c100.  But if you try to cheap out on the hardware, RAW will make your workflow miserable if not impossible. 

Why are you not not considering the 5D3? I feel like the only reason i would get a c100 is if i was going to do documentary stuff where i needed to handle tons of footage, run and gun,  and not have to worry too much about low light performance.

In All-I the compression is done in each frame is restricted to that one frame. In IPB, the compression is done across frames, by taking advantage of parts of the image that do not change from frame to frame.

I think the only real advantage is that you can cut to whatever frame you want with All-I. With IPB, since any given frame might be reliant on information in a previous frame, you are somewhat restricted in this capacity. However since you are being less restrictive on the compression algorithm (with IPB), you might get more detail and less macro blocking.

Does this make sense?

I think IPB should be the default choice.

I bought  a T4i, for my girlfriend and she loves it but says it is too big. So yes there is a market, I think it will be a success and I don't like mirrorless cameras so I find this is a fantastic move by Canon. Gee people complaining about too much choice, really don't get it.

I thought that's what the EOS-M was for. Or Nikon 1.

What the F is the difference supposed to be between this and the t5i? Am i missing something?

if you have no use for video, go with a used 1ds mkiii.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7d2 Video specification speculation

I would guess that the 7D2 video performance will be limited by the same overheating problems that limit all DSLRs.  DSLRs are camera that are designed to take photographs, but happen to have some ability to make video.  The video performance has to be limited to prevent the sensor and electronics from overheating and failing prematurely.

I don't think sensor heat has anything to do with it. You don't need to expose the sensor more times, you just need to throw away less data.

I believe that it must have something to do with it. The 1DC has a heat spreader around the sensor to keep it cool. The Sony SLT cameras are known to overheat while shooting 1080p60 video. They don't actually overheat, but first display a warning, then shut down before any damage can occur. Even my RX100 will shut down if I shoot 1080p60 long enough at a high ISO. I'd imagine the thermal output increases as the sensor size increases. The GoPro Hero and most handheld video cameras have tiny sensors.

Of course higher frame rates will put more heat on the sensor. What i am saying is, a far greater increase in video image quality can be achieved by throwing away less information from the sensor than adding more exposures(6op does have it's uses, but for many people it offers no useful advantage). 

It's time Canon took the handcuffs off it's dslrs.

I don't see a pun in the title.

I think he meant alliteration.

Whatever the specs are, we can pretty much guarantee that specs will be totally nerfed compared to what the processors are capable of.

I hoping for a 7DC that give me RAW, but i doubts that's coming anytime in the near future.

I think the c100 could make your life a lot easier, but if you are really looking the biggest jump in IQ over your existing setup, i'd say the clear winner is BMC.

The pains of working with RAW are real, but being able to make the image look exactly like you want it too, without worrying about losing detail or banding, is a huge advantage.

But think about it this way,  even if you had to buy a brand new workstation to handle raw....

$3000 BMC + $3000 workstation< c100

Street & City / Re: Jon Rafman's work: Unedited or not?
« on: February 24, 2013, 09:10:12 PM »
Does Jon claim that his work hasn't been adjusted in post?  I don't know of any serious photographer (editorial, commercial or otherwise) that doesn't adjust his or her work in post. I do know of a few who pretend they don't, and do.

The point is it's not really his work in the first place, it's purportedly what he's "collected" off google maps.  I think that editing the colors, and then sticking the map controls back in is a bit of a fib.
