EOS Bodies - For Stills / Question about our new 7D please
« on: December 15, 2014, 05:37:58 PM »
We just got our 7D MkII's and on the box it says under the bold Mark II
(which is under the EOS 7D part), EOS 7D MARK II (G). Does anyone know what the (G) means? We live in the US and bought them brand new from BestBuy's website. Thanks!

We went to a Civil War site last weekend that sat adjacent to a swamp and by the time we got 20 feet from the truck, we were bombarded by gnats to the head, so we're wondering if anybody has any tried and true product(s) to deter such critters. I will not use spray at all. I did buy Coghlan's "no see-um" head net, but it was too small. We're also wondering about being able to see properly through any such products to actually get any decent shots.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks - the two E's.

Is the tripod collar removeable on the big white telephoto lenses? Thank you.

That is a great side by side photo comparison of your 1Dx and your 7D with battery grip attached on your TDP & Flikr pages. I don't think I've ever seen the 2 together like that and it's an interesting glimpse for those of us 7D owners who (a. can't afford a 1Dx & b. don't have a camera store nearby to check the beast out). I just keep looking at the two for differences knowing how much the 7D weighs and feels, etc. I bet the 1Dx is quite a handful. That's pretty cool, thanx.

Lenses / Renting EF 500mm f4L IS MkII for birthday vacation
« on: October 24, 2012, 03:11:32 PM »
For my 50th birthday, my wife(and business partner) is taking us to the Southwest US to play and shoot photos. She rented us a couple 500mm MkII's for the trip. As you know from my collection at the bottom of my profile, we shoot with good old 300mm f4L IS's and the 500's are gonna be a giant and exciting leap forward for us. Can you offer any advice for us? We've got insurance, durable tripods etc. but more like field advice. We're wildlife shooters and any hints or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanx everyone. 

EOS Bodies / 7D Firmware update - any news there?
« on: June 27, 2012, 11:14:27 AM »
Many of us are still patiently awaiting the much anticipated new 7D firmware update that was posted here a few weeks ago. Any news of this actually happening anyone? Thank you.

EOS Bodies / New Firmware for MkIII [CR2]
« on: May 29, 2012, 11:29:36 AM »
Any mention of a new firmware update for the 7D? That rumour was thrown out a few weeks back and no word since. Just wondering if it's gonna happen or not. Thanx.

EOS Bodies / 7D firmware update - wow, could it be?
« on: April 21, 2012, 10:31:37 PM »
7D owners, does that post make you anxious or what? Imagine a fix to the ISO noise issues, autofocus issues and whatever other issues we've been having being implemented into the 7D. Man, then it would be an awesome body, wouldn't it?
Waiting here at the edge of our seats for the release........ :)

EOS Bodies / Canon's 'number' for specifying high ISO
« on: February 20, 2012, 08:41:22 PM »
Does anyone know what Canon's specific number is as far as their consideration of what high ISO is? This is conjunction with the 7D's 'high ISO noise reduction' option in C.Fn II-02 and I wonder if they, as a company, have a specific number at which they consider high ISO.
Thanx everyone.

Site Information / How to update our profile
« on: January 29, 2012, 08:51:59 PM »
We're new to the forum and have a question. How do we add our equipment to our profile? At the bottom of everyone's posts, I see that their equipment is listed. I don't see how to add this info under Profile.

Thanx everyone.  :)
