EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 70D Coming in July? [CR2]

…….. and the 6D, spoilt for choice!

I really don’t think the 70D will have the new sensor the 7D2 is the logical first show. I’d assume the big MP camera would be the second. Watch out for a new mode dial though…… yummy

Fantastic lens but the cost is a lot. USA £7800, UK£ 12000. Over a third more expensive. Ouch!

See it from the bright side, you can do a weekend trip to New York, live in a swanky hotel and eat nice and on the Saturday pick a lens up from an actual shop stocking it while still saving money overall.

That price differnetial isn't the fault of Canon....they base price to the dealers is pretty much the same. It's juat a bit of blatent profiteering from the UK vendors who are selling at full RRP and think they will sell every copy they can get their grubby hands on.
At the current price differential, get a standby flight to the US and go and get one Stateside. It'll cost you time and energy, but will yeild a serious price saving.

and good luck with customs on the way back  ;D

sorry off topic but as an aside is it correct that unlike bodies lens warrenties are world wide? I seem to remember reading that somewhere but It may have been on the back of a bottle of red  ::)

Photoshop Elements does not meet the requirements of the large group of amateur photographers who have graduated from point and shoots and only use RAW files.  PSE is more for JPG users.

How'd you work that one out? I only shoot RAW and happily use Elements

It's great that Elements works for you.  My point is that Adobe clearly aims at the family photographer producing JPGs.  The almost complete lack of 16 bit support (why bother when JPGs are 8 bit), ACR with many features disabled, restrictions on curves and adjustment layers, etc, etc, and the whole template scheme for thngs such as greeting cards and albums support the conclusion about its intended market.  Once again, it's great that it works for you and maybe you're better off than the rest of us who have become used to making extensive use of these features.

In response to other postings regarding Scott Kelby's Q&A - Scott says that at some point in the future if you don't like an increase in price you can simply stop paying.  This is utter nonsense since you then lose access to your data!

Now imagine if you are renting Lightroom and then stop paying.  Now you are completely locked out of all adjustments that you have made while paying over perhaps years.  Scary stuff.


Please don't think I'm in agreement with Adobe on this I'm not I really hope they get burnt.

Your right I don’t (think) I have the need to work in 16bit. I enjoy prints, maybe I'm missing a trick and should be working 16bit?
LR4 isn’t CC and used by many pros I assume that does allow you to work in 16bit?

As for the advanced manipulation tools, for photographers? maybe some of those amateur photographers who have graduated from point and shoots should go back and hone their photopgaphic skills rather than their PS skills or maybe that's me just being a synical old git, anyway that’s another debate not for this thread!  ;D

The Grebe f***s of cos it won’t be seen dead being photographed with anything less than a 14DR that shall not be named so neither of you get the pic, but thankfully being a cleaver Grebe it phones the coastguard to alert them to the guy wading in 10ft of water….. would sir like a life jacket.
I love this site so many egos, pass me another roll of panf and some colouring pens.

A swap to this model of using Adope CS6 will cause some problems for big organisations that have to secure their datas .
The head of the IT department in the organisation where I work, is in doubt whether the state bureaus is allowing to open the firewall/safety-solutions to use this cloud based software. It is to risky. They are in fear to get hacked.
And we own really a lot of CS6 licences.


xps this is the aspect that most interests me I'd be really interested to hear what your company does about that or indeed what Adobe's (or your suppliers) response is.

With all the paranoia around regarding authorities and public photography I can see many places treating this as a ‘spy’ cam and reacting accordingly, fascinated to see how this technology progresses.

Congrats, this looks like a cracking little camera to me especially with a 40mm pancake, would love them to come out with a 28 or 30 and a 60 at 40ish prices, would be a great little system.

For all the criticism Canon have taken recently I really think they’ve got it right with this one. For me it has the feel of when the OM1 was released.

You may want to consider Raynox DCR-150, cheep as chips (I got the 250 just for fun and would be too much macro for what you want) it’s a simple clip-on that would seem ideal in a wedding environment for just one shot, no messing about, very quick to use. Not sure if it’s up to pro requirements but I think it’s surprisingly good for the price.

Errrr...... 'Save As' ;D
