EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS M Vanishes from Canon USA Web Site

40mm pancake is a great lens. I'm sure Canon shooters won't mind adding few more to their kit. UWA pancake - like 19mm would be awesome.

Same here. I have a laptop in the kitchen. Everytime the microwave is on, wireless internet be off.

I have latest Cisco router with 802.11n as neuro mentioned, but not sure the specs on my laptop. It's an old laptop.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: should I buy a 7D now for Cad $690
« on: May 26, 2014, 01:29:28 AM »
40D is a solid camera. It was my 1st DSLR. You won't see much dif. in IQ. Huge improvement will be AF system. If you not shoot anything fast, I say stay with 40d and save up money for full frame(6D, 5D III etc...). 40D Vs 6D or 5D III, IQ will be day and night dif.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Cps gave me a 1dx and falling in love
« on: May 26, 2014, 01:23:36 AM »
I wish the next 1d body will have an option to order with no built in grip
It's the single deal breaker for me I don't want a house brick these days but I want the performance

Must say that I would never want the 1D X without its built in grip. It makes the whole camera more solid, balances it all out, helps when changing axis, feels good in the hand and means you have one less thing to worry about when packing for an important job - because what can come off, can also be forgotten.

+1 with expatinasia. I tried the 1D X + 70-200 f2.8 IS II at local today, the balance is much-much better over 5D III.

832
For the lenses, I would buy exact of what I have, plus decent UWA zoom(16-35 f4 IS looks very promise)

Bodies? must be FF with 5D III features, at least. Maybe 1DX. Oh well, bodies come and go.

Wish list....Canon FF mirrorless, so I don't have to add Sony/Zeiss stuff to my gear.

sony a7 or a7r with fe 35mm or 55mm.

Or

Add 40mm pancake to your 5d iii. I found this combo easy to carry around.  I have two young kids myself.

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

And for anyone that's interested in how you get these Low to the Water Shots.

While I was capturing the Images my Guide/Driver shot this, from the vehicle, where anyone that's smart would be.

Not shot with a 1Dx, but it was a Canon.

Wow....elm, did you lost your 200-400?  ;D  The hippo seems to be in close distance in 2nd photo.

great shots edward, keep'm coming!

eldar...nice shot of the amur leopard...we have two here at our local zoo....beautiful creatures.

girls softball w/ the 70-200 2.8

i usually try to overexpose by a 1/3 when i'm trying to get faces under helmets, but sometimes i unfortunately blow out areas of the image with that technique.

1D X is designed to capture photos like these. Awesome Northstar

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx
« on: May 24, 2014, 11:07:01 PM »
I wish I could say I met this one out in the wild, but ... I´m afraid not. This is an Amur Leopard, 30-40 remain in the wild and about 120 are in various parks around the world. This one was shot during a Photography Master Class in The Ark of the North (Nordens Ark) in Sweden.

200-400 f4L IS 1.4x at 250mm
1/125s, f5.0, ISO2500

Awesome shot Eldar

interested to see what 7D II has to offer..... ::)

I think it is G.A.S.  :P

What about the 1DX?
A dream no?
And the 16-35 f/4 IS?
choices choices choices...... 8)

Just for the record, I DO NOT have G.A.S....... ;D   I talked myself out of 600mm: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=19923.120

1D X would be a dream camera for many us(including myself). If I can talk myself into selling A7r + FE 55mm, then 1D X is within reach..... ::)

Regardless how fast 7D II might be, I highly doubt I would add crop sensor to my kit. Anyways, still want to see the specs
Well, there is no such thing as : "I DO NOT have G.A.S". It is "I DO NOT have G.A.S NOW!"  ;D

LOL.......... ;D

Some of you know me better than I know myself  ;)

Dylan, get a 1DX and you won't regret it! 

I tried talking myself out of buying a 1DX for about 6 months, but I finally bought a 1DX about a month ago, and I'm loving it!

Yeah, the 1DX is big and heavy, but it's like driving a Porsche...there is no substitute! Plus, the files are so much easier to work with in Lightroom...I don't see the banding/color noise in the shadows, like I do with my 5dMkIII.

Thanks Gino for the encouragement.

I'll keep an eye on 1D X special sale from now on. If the price is right, I guess anything can happen ;)

Wonder...what is the lowest price on 1D X, US model?

Animal Kingdom / Re: Your best animal shots!

Turtles aren't a subject I seek out, but I'd like to play - the first two and the last are Suwanee Cooters  - Suwannee (river) as in the song, and cooter as in the American slang for a woman's well, you know.  Odd name for sure.  I haven't been able to identify the other turtle:

Canon General / Re: Let's confess our disgusting perversions
« on: May 23, 2014, 04:52:47 PM »
0. I'm sure these are disgusting perversions for many, but I don't agree with you ;D
1. I like some Sigma lenses better, than equivalent Canon ones.
2. My camera is worth more than all my lenses combined at the moment.
3. I never use UV filters.
4. I prefer 50/1.8II on FF over 35L on a Rebel.
5. I always use LiveView for landscapes.
6. I crop a lot.
7. I only use center point for focusing.
8. For me, photography is a "capture-the-moment technology", not art.

#2 - As long as you enjoy the IQ, there is nothing wrong with that

#7 - Dam 6D  :P

#8 - same here. there is no rule of third in my photos. I don't use DOF button before pushing shutter. I like to shoot wide open, unless, I really want to have background included. These are just tools to capture what I want and when I want to  ;)
