That was an interesting exercise, focusing on only three freatures!

Only looking at the list presented I whittled it down to this list (in order)

Better low light ISO performance
Upgraded auto-focus system
Reduced horizontal/vertical noise banding
Faster flash sync speed
Bigger image buffer
Faster FPS
Faster SD card reader
Better dynamic range

The second and third changed but my thinking was what's the point of better low light performance if you can't focus on anything!
What was interesting for me was how better DR got pushed down the list. Al those other things for me are just more important.
I'd liked to have seen 7D2 weather sealing but I would expect it to get that.

Oh and the one thing I don't want to see, 40MP !! that is just a whole other camera.

How do I work out how many minutes of video I can get into 1 GB of SD card space?


Depends on resolution and/or framerate.
I believe 1080/24p is 12 min (plus/minus a few seconds) for 4Gb.
So about 3 min. per Gb.

Here is a t3i manual (go to page 151):

Cheers! But i was meaning for 4k off a 1" sensor

Is it as simple as 3mins x 0.27 ?   (1080/4000)

Excellent news, same as many others not a camera for me but this is going to be very interesting!
I'm assuming that this is not going to be the 5DIV though! that I think would be really bad news.

I could actually answer yes to three of those options

is it sad that I enjoy reading manuals!!!

I used to have the full set of every AutoCAD manual, the hardback period was gorgeous  :)

love this artists work he stands on the shoulders of giants

and he provided proof if proof was needed that nikon cameras have so much dr that they can pull the moon in front of clouds

I mean what's not to Lik  ;)

+ 1 for this excellent little combo! always thought it would make a great street package


Nice image...
Would be impossible with my 7D.

You could do it with MagicLantern's DualISO feature.

I think you could do it with a G7X.

in fact the only word you may have missed is 'easily'

just looks like an HDR image to me  :-\

However i agree with the Rob i think that sun is a distraction to the image. The black and white looks much better, highpass and slight sepia tone. I always feel that i can get away with much more noise in a black and white photo and it still looks correct.

+1 on that. That's how I was going to go but discovered my version of Dx0 Pro doesn't allow me to process from that camera :(

PS do love the idea of this being a monthly thing!

Canon General / Re: Canon U.S.A. Prices going down?

This implies a 40% drop in Canon prices over the same period. Will this be a bonanza for U.S. Canon shooters? I hope so!

I'm guessing that would mean in UK a 40% rise in prices!  :o  ;D

For my personal taste, the images on the left are better in color, contrast and has more organic grains.


That's two for the left

My dear Mom's best friends
Singer, The best sewing machine in this world.

I remember this type of Singer sewing machine from my distant childhood. Good memories.

Yes, the whole top hinged up I remember all the coloured bobbins were kept inside the wooden base, memories indeed.

Edit: meant to say nice photos surapon, isn't it great when a picture can evoke a memory, emotion or even a smell. Thanks for posting  :)
