learningcameras.com ... who's learning here? the reviewer or the audience?yes, they are only subjective. biased by subjective impressions and interrests.
Jokes apart, the sensor is the same 18mp that is available pretty much across the board for all Canon crop bodies so theoretically at least, there should not be any difference in the sensor performance.
I'm not too sure the tests are entirely scientific so I'd take this guy's advice with a rather bigger pinch of salt.
This camera is not meant to be in the same categories as the 7D and 60D...can't compare it as such.Yes, but there has to be an reason to buy this body. And if there is an little difference in money between the 60D 650D... and the 100D, but an big difference in the IQ, I doubt this model will be an cash cow for Canon.
Note, I would recommend against using/taking a DSLR because you will want to have it attached to various buckles, etc, so that in the event that you slip, tip, etc, that the camera doesn't end up in a ravine. And similarly, you don't want it on a long lead where it will swing and smash into the side of the mountain.
My mountain kit is a 70-200 on a 7D, and a 24-105 on a 5D mkII (formerly 5D mk I... I like the 7D better, but canon does not make a 16-85 f2.5....)
I keep the one in a Toploader, and the other on my side on an r-strap. If it gets dicey, it can go in my backpack. This combo would work pretty well for most Kilimanjaro stuff, from what I have read of the routes; they're not too technical... This combo might be a bit heavy for Kili, but with proper acclimitization, not too bad. Comparatively, Kilimanjaro is not too high... You should be fine with a light SLR, if you are in good shape. A lot of people hump an SLR up Everest (check the blogs...)!!!
Are you backpacking/tru-hiking or rock climbing? If you are, why not spend your budget on making your other gear ultra-light (tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, etc.) That's what I did and got an F-stop Tilopa bag to put everything. I have the medium ICU and it fits 5DmkIII, 16-35mm, 24-70mm, 70-300L, Lee filters, additional 3 LP-E6 batteries plus charger, intervalometer. The pack is 48-liter and I can bring enough gear and supplies for a 5 day traverse. My base weight is around 17lbs.I own the Satori exp. With the mediom and large icu. But I use an Deuter hiking backpack aircontact pro 75. It is the best solution for this trip, as our guide tells us. I have to carry a lot of equipment, including medical equipment too. So the space for my camera equipment ist not big. A cam with one lens willl be maximum.
I'll be somewhat disappointed if the 7DII isn't available in 2013, but if a 100-400 II is available in 2013, it makes the decision easier on which to buy when!
Although, I did find a use case this weekend for a second body with a shorter lens. Actually, it wasn't so much the focal length as the minimum focus distance. Had a couple of tree frogs right alongside the trail. I wanted to get closer, but couldn't!
Canon clawed their way to the top over about 30-40 years. They weren't always the leader they are today. They did so by running a smart business. Sales figures would indicate they still know what they are doing. Do people buy other brands? Of course they do. It's not in our best interests for any company to have a monopoly share of the market. Every time Nikon introduces a new product, I'm very happy because it means Canon must compete.
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.
Okay, repeat after me: This is NOT a cloud application. This is Not a cloud application.
From Adobe's website: "And, as always, your applications live on your desktop, not in a browser and not in the cloud."
It is just a confusingly-named marketing scheme.
The problem I have, regardless of whether the software resides in the cloud, on your desktop or on Pandora, is a requirement for an internet connection so that every time you start the application a license check is performed. That would cause a great deal of heartburn on my part.
It is not going to be that restrictive. The licensing server will either need to be connected to once ever 30 days or every 99 days. I have heard both numbers from adobe representative, so I am not sure which is true. My guess would be 30 days though.
The Wall Street Journal is stating that Adobe is abandoning the packaged software model in favor of Creative Cloud, and plans no further release of Creative Suit after the current 6.0.If I'm not wrong its been a year since they started Adobe Creative Cloud, but it is still not available in my region http://www.adobe.com/mena_en/products/creativecloud.html?promoid=JFQGY
...I have learned that the limiting factor is me, not the camera sensor...
So true. So easy to get caught up in the "Bigger is Better," "Newer is Better," "More Expensive is Better" mindset. Especially when you take part in a forum where there is always someone who has a bigger, newer, more expensive toy.
We throw numbers around here like they mean nothing and tend to forget that for most people, spending $1,000 on a camera is one huge investment, not to mention $2,000 to $3,500.
So true. Thanks for that reminder.
I am new to DSLR's and will be traveling to Europe for a little over a month (leaving June 10th). I am pretty set on the XXD line, but would be interested in other suggestions. I was rather hopeful of the April 23rd announcement date, but now that has come and gone and no 70D. So do you guys 1) think the 70d bill be released before I leave? Or 2) think I should go for the 60D, or another suggestion.
Where do you go to? City-travelling? Nature-travelling? shooting Landscape ?
How much do you want to spent for the equipment? Wahts the limit?
I will be doing a lot of city-travelling and landscapes.
