It's bad enough trying to pick the best shot out of a 12 FPS burst.  I think I would go blind trying to best shot from a 1ms burst capture with this thing ;)

I know the feeling  ;D

Sometimes, the best thing to say is not to say anything. Captured this homeless man sleeping in the alley during 2014-Aug-9, Breast Cancer Walk in Long Beach, California. The temp was in mid 80F. He had sweatshirt and blanket on.

400mm f2.8 IS II + 2x TC III

I like your series. Nicely done Dylan.

Well done Dylan, lovely shots. 800mm mmmmmmmm

In BIF world, longer is better ;)

Sharpness improved when step down to f6.3ish in Ai servo. Might not be as sharp as 300 + 2x TC at wide open, however, I'm gaining 2..0...0....mm in focal lenght. LOVING IT ;D

 How many photos do you need !!"
She loves to post when I'm around  ;)
Dylan,
Absolutely fantastic! Nice work. :)
Thanks

EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: Dual Pixel Phase Detect AF While in AI Servo

It may even be able to AF based on shape and colour of object, which would be very cool if it can be made to work reliably!
I believe such a thing already exists in the 1D X as well as many higher end Nikon bodies. They use the metering sensor to provide that info. Bit disappointed to see this got cut out when they made the 5D3. Really hope it makes the 7D2.

Yes, something like this does exist for the 1DX. I'm just wondering if this patent possibly represents a new way of implementing this by using the image sensor.  The 7D II, being designed as a wildlife/action camera would be a very logical product for such a technological innovation. :D
It calls EOS iTR AF. I have this feature turned off when shooting bird in flight. It works well on kids with colorful clothes.

My 200-400 1.4x is on the way. I will get it Thursday.  :D
Congrats, but get going to the gym !
I am currently in Etosha National Park and I am lugging the 200-400 on my 1Dx and its not easy to carry !
Oh and get the Canon 52mm Drop in CPL for it, works like a charm !

Would love to see some photos

JPEG will be just fine  ;D

I'm expecting something like this.  Canon wants to improve the tracking ability of the dual pixel technology to make it suitable for professional level autofocus.  I expect some solution to be in all future CanonDSLR's.

And maybe take one more step toward pro-level mirrorless.


Makes that FF mirrorless with native pancake prime lenses, I can smell the trouble  ;)

Perhaps if they targeted a mirrorless toward enthusiast buyers with a full sized body, it would sell.  In a early interview, Canon stated or hinted that the M was targeted at women buyers in Japan.  That demographic is apparently a big miss in USA and Europe.  It sells in Asia.

I'd certainly welcome the demise of that flapping mirror.
Sounds like they need to run new mirrorless campaign. This might help reversing that philosophy. And I HOPE&WISH for same type camera body that he's holding  ;)

That would be nice, but after getting bit with mirrorless technology 3 times, Canon is pretty shy.  The Fiasco with the "M" cost them a bundle.  Its nothing to do with the camera, just that the  buyers that it targeted wanted nothing to do with it.  They dumped them for a big loss.
I got smarter through my own mistakes.
