EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II in Q2? [CR1]
« on: January 31, 2014, 09:44:28 AM »
So it won't work with existing CF cards, might as well throw all of my existing CF cards in the garbage if they change it.
I'm selling my collection of thirteen CF cards of 2GB or larger. Sold three and and pre-sold five. The rest I need to look for as they are scattered in the house.

Original plan was to replace them with four 64GB or 128GB cards. I hate keeping track of so many loose items that I do not end up using. Why four CF cards? That makes it one body to one card.

Reading up on Sandisk, Lexar & Canon's involvement with CFast (and further readings on XQD) got me thinking that 2014 could be the year that we will see EOS bodies with SATA-based CFast card slots.

Too many eggs in a single basket? That has been the argument since over a decade ago. Never had a memory card go bad on me but misplacing them is always a problem.

This is another useless CR1 7D2 thread to add to the already existing ones...

I wasn't thinking quite that harshly but I was thinking along the same lines. Nothing new people, just another "look 7D2" moment lol
Not everyone visit CR every day folks. ;) A reminder is always welcome. It got me to check on the shutter life of my 4 bodies.

What I want to know is what memory cards will it be using. Will Canon still stick to UDMA 7 CF (167MB/s) or switch to UHS-II SDXC (312MB/s) or CFast 2.0 (600MB/s).

It has been more than 53 months since the 7D was announced to the public.

Brown-throated Sunbird (Anthreptes malacensis) by alabang, on Flickr

The Grey-throated Sunbird (Anthreptes griseigularis) is a species of  bird in the Nectariniidae family. It is found in a wide range of  semi-open wooded habitats in the northern and eastern part of the  Philippines. It is often considered a subspecies of the Brown-throated  Sunbird, but the two differ consistently in measurements and plumage,  and there is no evidence of intergradation between them.[1] It has not  been rated by BirdLife International (and consequently IUCN), but is  generally common and therefore unlikely to be threatened.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Best Nikon DF Review! By Fstoppers.

I agree.  It needs to cost $600-700, and have built-in Facebook connectivity and an Instagram filter, it'd be a hit.

If Canon came out with an equivalent to the Df based on the 5D3 or 1DX then I'd definitely be picking one up. ;)

Female Pied Bush Chat (Saxicola caprata) by alabang, on Flickr

The Pied Bush Chat (Saxicola caprata) is a small passerine bird found  ranging from West and Central Asia to South and Southeast Asia. About  sixteen subspecies are recognized through its wide range with many  island forms. It is a familiar bird of countryside and open scrub or  grassland where it is found perched at the top of short thorn trees or  other shrubs, looking out for insect prey. They pick up insects mainly  from the ground, and were, like other chats, placed in the thrush family  Turdidae, but are now considered as Old World flycatchers.

They nest in cavities in stone walls or in holes in an embankment,  lining the nest with grass and animal hair. The males are black with  white shoulder and vent patches whose extent varies among populations.  Females are predominantly brownish while juveniles are speckled.

EOS Bodies / Re: will there ever be CFast in DSLRs?
« on: January 16, 2014, 01:24:17 PM »
I think that the real limit is the glass. People talk about the good old days, but the reality is that the quality and resolution of lenses now exceeds what was around in the good old days of film. As a group we like to fixate over the image sensor and we forget that a camera is a system, the image quality is a combination of sensor, lens, focusing system, image stability, AA filters, image processing, and speed.

+100 ;)

I think "ever" is probably the wrong word here.  Look at Nikon's XQD format - many people (me included) had never heard of the thing before Nikon surprised us, so if we're discussing whether CFast will ever show up in a camera, then yes, it definitely will.  Whether it appears because video needs a higher write speed, or because Canon makes a camera that can shoot 10fps continuously... who knows?  But I'd be willing to bet that the next Cinema EOS cameras and probably Canon's next flagship dSLRs will have CFast capability built in.  If there's anywhere Canon should try CFast first, the professional video department would be a safe bet.  Dolina also points out that ARRI backs CFast, which makes the idea that Canon would debut CFast in a video a oriented or video-dedicated device more plausible, as the pro video community would already be prepared to use CFast in their workflow.

Here is last year's press release on sandisk arri and canon supporting cfast standard.

http://www.sandisk.com/about-sandisk/press-room/press-releases/2013/sandisk-launches-world’s-first-cfast-20-memory-card/

Lexar joins the cfast platform this year with their 3333x cfast card.

http://petapixel.com/2014/01/07/lexar-announces-cfast-2-0-card-claims-worlds-fastest-memory-card-title/

I think even transcend made a commitment as well.

Nikon's backing XQD and Canon and ARRI are backing CFast.

I see the transition to start this year with the 1-Series bodies. My guess would be it would be a CFast & CF slots like how Nikon did it with their D4's XQD and CF slots.
