EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7D Vs. Canon 70D
« on: January 14, 2014, 04:37:30 PM »
Hullo Hjalmarg1, seems there are a lot of people asking the same question as you are.  I have quite extensively compared the ergonomics and performance of the two cameras, 7D and 70D, on my website.  Here is the link

In summary, the 7D has a bigger body, more robust, with more external controls and a slight speed advantage.  The 70D has an image quality advantage, in good light and especially at higher iso settings, perhaps a slight AF improvement, a definite AF improvement in Live View and video in a much smaller package.
Hope that helps

In most disciplines the 70D is better than the 7D.
If you do shoot in extreme situations the 70D will be the "better 7D"

Mr. AE1Pguy is right too, if he prefers the 6D. In speedy situations the 70D is better and has more AF points... But the Eos 6D-IQ ist far better than the 70Ds - especially in low light situations.

(My personal opinion)

Meh.  :-\

But its ok if its a full frame rebel.  ;D

a full frame rebel? Yessss, Sir! A 6DII would be great....
More AF points and a a little bit faster AF-performance would be great!

... Why the hell 7D mark ii should have more megapixel than 1Dx? :o

Maybe, ´cause most other equal cameras have more than 20MP....?

Software & Accessories / Re: Best Headlamp I've Found
« on: January 14, 2014, 10:10:17 AM »
My children use Mammut X-950 Sun headlamps when they go paragliding or basejumping. Very strong and it is rechargeable. We use the Petzl Ultra rush at the mountain-rescue.
Both models are ultrastrong.

I was allowed to shoot with the Alpha 7 and 7R last weekend. Impressive Camera with an great IQ. I just got the 28-70 kit lens to shoot with. Bust the pictures are really impressive!
As we did this in an guided workshop it will take some days to get my pics to post here.
But if Sony will release some better lenses, this Camera will be a hit!

My personal impressions: Really superb IQ. We shot e.g. dancing childrean without flashlight at high Iso. And I found no noise! Great colours, really sharp. Superfast AF, even at low light. The Cam is not the fastest at continuous shooting, I think about 3-4 pics a second. But, most of them are super sharp.
A tricky situation will be to change the lens, ´cause of the uncovered sensor. This might be an problem if you are outside...
But simply the best IQ I have seen in the last month. Much better than my 7D and better than my 6D.

Canon will do hard to meet the IQ at this range of price (1400€ body)

If Sony releases some more lenses, a definitive competitor to the Canon and Nikon DSLRs.

EOS Bodies / Re: Will Canon Answer the D4s? [CR2]
« on: January 09, 2014, 06:02:21 PM »
but seriously: I read, that Canon has ordered a lot of new BIG boxes, where their Cams are stored inside.
Worlds favourite sports event appears in 2014 too...
So those of you, that are in hope that there will be an announcement in spring might be not wrong...
Chances are high that we will see something new. But if it will be a gamechanger? Let us see...

The D7100 will be to be beaten in IQ....

<p>... are coming in 2014. Along with a host of Cinema EOS products in April.</p>

that's the only part of the article I fully believe.  :P

Not in April.... NOW!


Btw: Canon still has no competitor to the D800E. The 1D line is twice the price of the D800.  Maybe Canon will be able meet our wishes in 2014 (high MP Cam @ moederate costs, 7DII,...)

Corrected Posting:

BTW: Nikon still has no competitor to the 5DIII. The D4 line is twice the price of the 5DIII.  Maybe Nikon will be able to meet its customers wishes in 2014 (high ISO, Low-Noise Camera at fair price, D400...)

The point is, just because Nikon offers slightly different specs, it doesn't make it better. I much prefer what Canon did with the 5DIII to what Nikon did with the D800 and judging by the comparative sales figures, it seems like the market agrees.

As for this new Nikon, I'm trying to figure out what's so different. Meet the new Nikon, same as the old Nikon? And, if high megapixels are so wonderful, why doesn't Nikon put a high megapixel sensor in its flagship?

Sorry, I meant that Canon has no big MP Camera and some friends of mine, working for an big Canon supplying company, told me, that Canon will release an big MP Cam - but in the price-region of the 1DX.
Some Nikonians say, that Nikon is developing an gamechanging high-end model... Maybe this is true. Maybe not. We will know in some years.

Fact is, that every company found its niche, where an special Camera-model is better then the competitors.

So no mention of release date.  What good is this information other than to stifle sales of the D4?

It's a lot of information. "No new sensor", is the first thing I read in the announcement. Nothing about "high res".
So it will be the same old 16MP D4 sensor , probably in the "improved" Df version. No increase in fps. Slightly tweaked AF algortihms (no new AF module). Slightly improved new "X peed" chip. Somewhat better video. Maybe, just maybe WiFi built in. Yawn.  :P

Instead of a kick-butt D4x based on the 36MP D800/E sensor plus revolutionary new dual-pixel AF.  ;D
WiFi, NFC, GPS and radio wireless flash commander built-in. Along with 2 matching radio-controlled CLS/iTTL speedlites and transceivers for existing older speedlites, instead of continued stone-age optical triggering. ;D

found @ dpreview: "Nikon has announced it is working on the D4S which, like the D4, it describes as an 'HD-SLR.' Details are extremely slight, with the company promising a new image-processing engine and improved autofocus performance."


Btw: Canon still has no competitor to the D800E. The 1D line is twice the price of the D800.  Maybe Canon will be able meet our wishes in 2014 (high MP Cam @ moederate costs, 7DII,...)

The Nikon D3300 is another competitor. What will Canon do?

Lighting / Advice needed: Mobile Flashlight device
« on: December 21, 2013, 04:51:13 AM »
Dear community, I need your help:

I am looking for an well built mobile flashlight device set (Bouncer,beautydish,... - as much options as possible) that can be adapted to an Canon EX550 or 580 flash. I own a mobile flash-powered softbox, but more is needed. The adapters should be robust.
My youngest son needs it for school´s art class.

Much Thanks

Software & Accessories / Backpack for snowwalking & ski tours
« on: December 01, 2013, 02:38:41 PM »
I bought an new photobackpack for wintersport (skiing, snowwalking). Camera access  from the back and from the side, about 36l volume. But the quality of this US backpack was not good. The zippers got stuck and the whole frame bent under the weight, so I felt every lens through the unpadded backpart. 1 time returned, the new one was worser then the first one...

So I am looking for an backpack again.
It should have back and side access,  comfortable to carry, About 40-45l volume, enough room for 1 probody and an 70-200L lens, 2 lenses in the size of the 24-70 2.8, 1-2 smaller ones.
Tripod, flash, filters. No laptop. And enough room for clothes and food.

Does anybody know such an backpack?
If no one knows an alternative backpack, I would think of buying an F-stop Tilopa.

Much thanks

meet the new Nikon Df ... erm the Nikon DOA :-)

Steampunkt design without any functional advantage. Still need both hands to operate it. And best of all: no video, no video! AND expensive as hell. Conclusion? It won't sell. hehehe!

D800 is currently at 2000 Euros - including 20% VAT [Germany] :-)

Wait a little bit, claiming to have no video... Maybe there will be an extraordinary IQ. Then everyone will buy it. Even if Nikon sells it at 4000$....
Or: This is a new trend. One body for video, one for stills... So Nikon will earn a lot mor money. (Ts,ts,ts... Canon - You are to late! Normally Canon optimizes the profit, not Nikon.)

In the end of the 70ies, I bought a AE-1. It became a good a friend of mine and I took it with me on each of my flight.
This would be an good "retro".....

I took the picture frome the www)
