DPP, for example, has an almost miraculous ability to "add DR" in the shadows compared to Lr; Optics Pro is good too, albeit not as good as it could be in reaching into just the shadows.

That's really interesting Keith, I've recently moved from DPP to Optics Pro mainly for Prime which I think is fantastic but I didn't realise I may be losing out on pulling shadows. Admitedly the only time I can think of wanting to pull shadows recently was about a 1-1/2 stops (oops my bad!) so I'm not sure if any differences would show at that? Must give it a try.

7Dii - same sensor/IQ as 70D but with eye control af, slight up in fps all else as 7D

How would that be received?

Doesn't sound like a shop, surely the shop would try it and even the most inept shop assistant would notice an SD card rattling around a CF slot!  :o

Love these photos, thanks for posting.
Also really like your b&w processing, really tight and crisp (not sure if I'm expressing that correctly photographically!)

Wait so...... In order to transfer files from your camera to your computer by WiFi you need an external site to be up and running??? You sure, sounds bezarro, Adobe would be proud  ;D

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx
« on: August 02, 2014, 06:12:06 AM »
Guys, and almost all of us are guys, lets not get precious about this, there are a lot of mediocre images here, not least the hundreds of illustrative images I have put up. There are also some very very good images, though they are in the minority.

But Dave is really missing the point, this is not, predominantly, an image centric forum, it is a gear centric forum where most people come to see and talk gear and are photography geeks who enjoy the equipment as much as the image making, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that as far as I am concerned. If you want more stunning images than you can believe go to 500px, or Flickr.

There are some standouts here though, Jrista's astro photography is very good, Kieth Reeder gets the best I have ever seen out of the 7D at over 800iso, Sporgon has an amazing and never ending array of technically perfect and  atmospheric English landscapes, florianbieler.de shoots very high quality environmental portrait sets. We have some high quality well heeled shooters too, Gary Samples and his eagles, wolves, etc and eml58 with his safaris and Indonesian portraits to count just six off the top of my head, high quality image makers here (and please don't get offended if I missed you, there are many more than six!).

But, the truth is if you want gear talk and opinions, if you want baseless rumours, if you want to see Neuro demolish the latest incarnation of Mikael, and if you want illustrative images, diagrams, links and advice then this is THE Canon place to be.

+100 nailed it, CR in a nutshell

EOS Bodies / Re: High Megapixel EOS on the Way as Mentioned by Canon

Because, there are survey results 4-5% of customers who bought the kit lens is that it does not use only kit lens.


Would indeed be interesting to see an accurate translation of this. Do 5% never buy another lens? If so that is an amazing stst

I could believe that easily 4-5% never buy another lens.  I know people with DSLRs that bought a kit and are just fine with their kit zoom.  They take pictures only once in a while such as on a trip or at some big event.  It just depends on how much they get into photography.

wouldn't the is does NOT only use the kit lens, imply the opposite though?
I also find this confusing, but read somewhere (trying to find the source) that 80-90% of DSLR owners (that would be Rebels & their Nikon ilk) never remove their kit lens.  Alan's math makes sense in that regard, plus, not every SLR or DSLR owner throws away their body after two years.  People have bought my old bodies, and I bet many of them still own them.

yeah I guess that could be

Nope you were right the first time it does imply the opposite, 95% do buy an additional lens. Doubt that would include second hand but may include third party. Maybe they are all 50 1.8s and 40 stm's  ;D
It's an interesting little snippet, probably nothing more than some simplistic maths division by marketing but if it is a properly researched stat it is very impressive

EOS Bodies / Re: Eos7D mk2, How EXCITED will you be if . . .?
« on: July 16, 2014, 05:26:34 PM »

Annnnnnd, here's a poll on LCD screen preferences I ginned up:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TK65Z2Y

I'd appreciate everyone's thoughts.  It's a classic example of an engineer channeling his inner marketing guy, but please, indulge me.  I am truly curious.

Sorry to take the question outside of CR, but I wanted follow up questions that the CR Forum poll doodad will not allow.

- A


My answers didn't appear in the results, a well that's marketing for you  ::)

I dunno. I've read the subsequent DPAF patents, and there isn't anything remotely revolutionary in there. Mostly just using different sized photodiodes for the AF part, and a means of increasing sensitivity for AF without reducing IQ. If that's all Canon's got for the 7D II, they are going to take a HUGE reputation hit...and they HAVE to know that... (If they don't, then they've totally lost touch with their customer base, and I am seriously hoping that's not the case.)

Are you suggesting that the people here are representative of Canon's customer base?  I see lots of clamoring for better IQ on forums but until the 70D, the 7D remained a strong seller.  I'd bet a 7DII with 41ish AF points and 10 fps, and a 24 MP DPAF sensor similar in IQ to the 70D, would sell quite well.

I think that's going to turn out to be pretty accurate as it's going to get reamed in these forums for that but a 7D as is with those additional specs is actually going to be a superb camera, as a nice to have I would like to see touch screen, not swivelly tilty thing though. Well that's what I'm expecting anyway.
