EOS Bodies / Re: Where are you EOS 70D?

Well, there's a 6D and a smartphone running EOS remote... but it's unwieldy if you're holding both of them.
Yeah...not to mention you lose the 1000-shot battery life advantage of having a DSLR.

I wonder... you will be using your wifi, but on the other hand your screen and its illumination will be off instead of on. I wonder which uses more energy and which contributes more heat and electrical noise inside the camera?

I like the thought that the screen on my 60D keeps the display hardware outside the body when I'm doing long exposure astro photos.

And speaking of weather sealing... what about the microphone holes?

what about the main dial behind the shutter button!

If it’s (Edit: 7D2) got the new sensor tech I think it will and should be welcomed with open arms, prices change, new manufacturing processes are really pinning your colours to the mast.

1200D, 18mp + Digic 5 = same image quality as 650D maybe wifi for a bit of bling would I think be rather good to great for the base level DSLR offering.
As for AF points who knows what is going through their heads with that one but I’d guess 11 with one cross type. It should be 11 cross but they have screwed up so much higher up the food chain there’s no chance of that.
Whilst they lag behind on sensors they should be really pushing those other differentiators in a system like ergonomics and AF performance and yet these are the things they cripple or are at best inconsistent with in the upgrade paths

16 pages and counting…..Folks I here Spielberg is interested in the film rights (APS-C format of course) :P

ZIM…… He’s just a regular guy trying to do his best to destroy worlds, without the best of kit  :P


more like a loveable bug  ;D

Is Full Frame sharper than APS-C?


the only people who may know something are under NDA and test for canon.

and if the standard of testing is anything like the 5D3 then they will be testing the 7D2 at weddings :P

Maybe that's really the reason Canon screwed up and still cannot reproduce the problem - they see af assist as a tool for shooting in pitch black conditions as the 5d3 af should be able to copy with just "low light" on its own? And probably the focus lag in dim light wasn't seen as a problem since the condition was considered to be unlikely.

This sounds like a very plausible explanation to me, could even be described as a feature, but then why is it taking Canon so long to just say so?

A move to mirrorless with an EVF would end my use of the 7D line forever. A move to mirrorless with EVF's on all Canon cameras would end my use of Canon...forever.


Oh I am sure Canon has heard all this during that FD to EF switch...and they did it anyways.

Circa ~1987 Jrista's forerunners said... "If they make my current FD lenses obsolete with new EF mount bodies...I'll ..I'll... never forgive them... I will...I will... arhmmm... grunt... move to Nikon!!! *Huff* *Puff*... I mean it this time..."

Canon knows you will get over it... whimper a bit, lick your wounds, and buy the mirrorless line and what's more...praise the same thing you spited as the best thing ever in a year from the switch. :D

There is no shame in sucking it up and moving on. :D

Did someone say FD........ still sucking it up....... stil trying to move on........ damn you Canon damn you  ;D ;D

Any purchases or reviews yet??


that is no review... not yet.

it´s a preview.

True but you do seem to be able to compare target shots, looking forward to the full review though

Well just got my first book from Blurb and have to say am very pleased with it. Not perfect but any issues I can see I can account for by a mistake at my end. I did very little post processing but a lot of monitor calibration!

What lens are you using? I'd have thought Jupiter would be nothing more than a fuzzy little ball with anything less than a 4" reflector?

AF on Jupiter, seriously?  :o
