EOS Bodies / Re: A Big Megapixel Discussion
« on: June 11, 2013, 01:50:40 PM »
Or will the 5DIV be 45 MP

That's one possibility, that the 5D Mk IV is going to be the big MP camera, and eventually a future 6D Mk II will gain a better AF and more FPS...

I'm not sure what you are basing that on. This could very well be the 1D Xs.

Speculation. It's fun. Sure, it could be called 1D Xs. But again, I don't think so, especially if it's going to be a non-integrated grip body, which is my preferred option. In the other case, why not? But unlikely. Remember Canon introduced the "X" to represent the merging (crossing) of the 1D and 1Ds lines, and now what? Splitting in two the 1 series again and keeping the X, though both FF?

It's a flagship

Not necessarily. The 1D series will continue to be the flagship, I don't know how the big MP camera will be numbered, but most probably it won't be 1, IMO.

We’re told there is still discussion in regards to form factor of such a camera. There’s probably an even 50/50 split in preferences between an EOS-1Dx style body or a EOS 5D Mark III style body. I fall into the latter category, the smaller

Me too. Both for the big megapixel camera and for the 7D MkII.

Canon General / DP Review: no news? (at this post time)
« on: May 28, 2013, 01:51:27 PM »
May 23: 4 news.
May 24: 3 news.
May 25: 2 news.
May 27: only 1.
Today: no news? (at this post time)

I've noticed in the past, when news languish on DP Review (maybe) it's because the Staff is working hard on something really exciting. Do you folks ever had the same sensation or is it just me suffering for an acute attack of CRSAS (Canon Rumors Speculation Addiction Syndrome)?  :o

I'm wondering whether they're all too busy playing with some exciting new stuff... from Canon?  :P

(But maybe a flood of insignificant news is just around the corner)

Hi Paul, I've just switched my PC on at work and checked this thread for news... bad news, indeed.  :(  Sorry to hear this, tpatana, alexanderferdinand and optikus are right, CPS is the only route. Fingers crossed...

I hope it's not the 7d body!
I think it's neither your 7D nor the grip. But if you want to sleep peacefully tonight, why don't you insert whichever kind of fresh AA-sized batteries in your grip and try right now? Disposable alkalines don't last long, actually only a few minutes shooting LV, but are fine for just running a test.

nope, going to go into calumet tomorrow and hopefully try batts in alt body.

Let us know some news tomorrow... If something's broken let's hope it's the battery rather than the grip!

Really bothersome the adverts in the posts made in threads.

I don't see them, I use Firefox with Adblock Plus.  8)

EOS Bodies / Re: Digitalrev speculates on D7100 vs. 7D2
« on: May 27, 2013, 01:06:16 PM »
I still am firmly in the camp that the 7D2 is (a) absolutely going to be aimed at pros (for birders, sports guys, etc.) and (b) is absolutely going to cost more than the 6D.

I'm in your same camp!  ;)

But I don't understand why they name the Digic V, if the 7D2 is going to be a 2014 cam it'll have Digic VI for sure. And a crazy droolworthy 12-14 fps, hopefully  :P, for merely $ 2.5K  :o , take it or leave it! Or, take the 70D...

No idea, sorry, never came across such behavior. Just out of curiosity, a few questions:

1. Did you buy all your LP-E6 at the same time? I mean, are they all the same age?

2. Do you remember their "battery info" history? how many green/red bars and when? My ones, all bought at different times, went from 3 green bars to 2 green bars after about 1 1/2 years, then 1 red bar after 3 years. Now they're all 1 red bar, but still perform well. But I don't do video and don't use live view so much, live view and video stress them a lot more...

3. Did you ever run them empty? Or, do you often charge them when they are nearly empty (say, below 10%)?

Your post made me feel a bit anxious... LP-E6 were first introduced with the 5D2, it may be that in a few months we will begin to notice an hecatomb of them, who knows...

I don't have third party LP-E6 compatible batts because I prefer to use 6 AA Ni-MH Eneloop, a cheaper but valid alternative to compatible third party Li-ion batts, as an emergency power source since I already have lots of them for my Speedlites and I'm quite satisfied as far as performance is concerned.

EOS Bodies / Re: New AF Technology Coming in July? [CR1]
« on: May 25, 2013, 08:53:53 AM »
Mmmh... Could it be some video-related stuff? I'm leaning towards a new kind of contrast detect AF or something to replace (or byside) it, rather than something phase detect AF-related.

Forget all the high tech guff for a minute...go out and buy a 100D/SL1 slap on a shorty forty, walk down the city street and shoot, shoot, shoot. Go on you know you want too....it's called fellin gooooood! Don't be shy post them here.

Felling good: Felling things in an effective manner, as in chopping down trees...

I assume you meant feeling good?

I feel when better shooting my 300 2.8 with a 7D with BG, and a 2x TC...


Nevertheless, I assume you feel better when shooting with your 7D with BG and 300 2.8 with a 2x TC... or at least I hope you don't use a Nikon riflescope on your 7D gun when shooting your big whites... you must have bought a really bad copy, indeed!  ;)

BTW, I can't wait to realize how I feel shooting with the Fuji x-100s...


Lenses / Re: Do you wish your 70-200L were black?

Near-white concrete will also feel far hotter than grass. Try it - also guaranteed. The transfer of heat is far more complicated than just colour.

Hi all!

Grass is not the kind of "material" to take into account for such a comparison. Vegetables (and all living tissues) contain water and transpire, water evaporation abstracts heat and lowers the temperature.

Neuro's first post is spot on.

C'mon Canon, how long for the first sweating lens with built-in water tank to keep the temperature constantly low?  ;D  ;D  ;D

Canon General / Re: Announcement: Canon EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x
« on: May 14, 2013, 01:58:58 PM »
Admittedly I would never want to spend this much on a single lense or piece of camera equipment
I would, if I only could... but I can't, so it's not going to happen  :(

...why for the convenience of having a built-in extender someone would pay so much for a relatively slow lense.
I wouldn't call the 400 f/4 combo "relatively slow", even if it was referred to a prime lens; I'd love a 400 f/4 IS prime. Being a zoom, I'd rather say the 200-400 f/4 is pretty fast. Price will drop considerably in a couple of years, anyway.

Lenses / Re: Poll: Most Wanted New Lenses of 2013.
« on: May 06, 2013, 09:27:32 PM »
I voted for the 400mm F/4L IS USM. I have the excellent 70-300 L and would love a 400 f/4 which could be used with both the 1.4X and 2X TCs. I could sell it and go for the new 100-400 when it comes out, but the former option is much more attractive to me, though more expensive.

Other lenses I'd like: 14-24 (or 12-24, a patent exists!) and 50 f/1.4 IS

EOS Bodies / Re: No 7D Mark II in 2013? [CR2]
« on: May 06, 2013, 09:22:41 AM »
I am guessing that getting the new 18 micron process thang is not going as well as they would like... The 7D mk II will probably be the first to be released using the new process, somewhere around 24 MP with ISO up to 102,400... probably the new 3200 ISO will be as good as the old 400 ISO...

Well, let's hope it's the 70D that's going to sport the new tech sensor first. It seems conflicting rumors overlap regarding this matter, probably because different prototypes are being tested, but I'm hoping for something really exciting, as far as sensor tech is concerned, for the camera that should become the direct competitor of the Nikon D7100.
