EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: I checked my 7D today and I found something strange... it still works!« on: September 24, 2014, 06:13:45 PM »
Everyone (including myself) seems to be searching the internet for reviews on the new 7D2. It looks like an impressive camera, kind of like how the 7D looked impressive back in 2009 when it was first introduced.
Well, I find myself wanting a new 7D2, but... my now 3 year old 7D still works perfectly and still takes amazing photos... What's my point?
My point is, I will probably upgrade to the 7D2 eventually, but not today. I love my 7D and it still does today what it has always done for me, take fantastic photos. It's still lighting fast and I love the image quality, even at high ISO's. No it's not a low light camera and it was never designed to be, but with a little post-processing images even taken at ISO 3200 are very nice, especially when they are of a hummingbird's wings frozen in time...
I am forcing myself to remember that it is the photographer that makes the photo, not his or her equipment. Yes tools give a workman more options BUT any camera in the hands of a skilled workman (or woman) is an amazing thing. You can capture a moment in time and share it with your friends, family and even make a living doing so.
I love my 7D. I don't see me getting rid of it anytime soon.
As there has been a lot of discussion in the past two weeks about bashing the marvellous 7DII and everybody who wrote something not positive, was called a troll, I wonder, why no one called the owner of this thread a troll?
My 7D still works fine too. It will work fine, until the 5DIV will appear on the horizon
