Nice specs! It is nice to have the faster shutter speeds for when one may need it. With those shutter speeds a whole new world opens up to freezing motion… Well done.

i will have to add that exception to my sorting/pruning of photos routine: note to self do not delete weasel on woodpecker photos, even if oof and blurry.

hahahaha

What is more unusual, pairing a weasel with a woodpecker or a 70D with an ef 300mm 2.8?  Hmmm... ::)

:) :)

Canon General / Re: Do More Mega Pixels translate in a richer photo?

Short answer: No

I started with a Canon 10D at 6MP and was astounded art the quality it could yield given certain subjects and good technique.
I now use 5Dmk3s and while they have a lot of resolution, that resolution is apparent only when I use the best technique and is more apparent on some subjects more than others.
The reality of high res cameras is that the majority of situations we find ourselves  are less than optimal thus giving us files that are large without the detail we hoped would be there.
In studio and on location under tightly controlled conditions I can see good results but if I am shooting handheld there is no advantage over my 10D.

Most of my work is handheld. Tele lenses, 800 odd ISO, f5.6, 1/500. I will not see ANY improvement? :( And why is this so? My first camera was 5d2. Now I am using 5d3 and 1dc - they all have similar mpixs. I do not have any experience with significant higher or lower mpixs. So do explain your theory. Pls.

Communications research....

First major project that I worked on was Telidon. http://www.friendsofcrc.ca/Projects/Telidon/Telidon.html

The project predated the internet and influenced many aspects of it's design, including the concepts of HTML and the idea that you could connect from anywhere. In 1986, when the internet was officially created, we were part of it.... and here is a picture from 1986.... the first cat picture posted on the internet!

The DR seems fine.

I had one of the original canon 1d cameras. The 1d mark 2 was just released. I HAD to have one. Think of the improvement from 4 megapixels to 8. I ordered one and did this little test:
(I shoot baseball).
I stood behind home plate with a 400mm f2.8 lens and shot the pitcher warming up with the original 1d
Then I switched bodies to the mark 2.
Shot the same pitcher from the same spot.

I could not wait to see the images. Imagine the increased detail! Everything would be twice as good!

When I got home, I opened both images in two different windows and zoomed in on the pitchers belt buckle.
And looked and looked. Side by side.
While you would pick the mark 2 as better, you had to REALLY study them to see any difference at all.
It was extremely close. BARELY different.
I wound up returning the camera.
If I couldn't see any difference with a casual glance, it wasn't much of an improvement.

You write with passion…
Am hoping the comparison between 21 mp and 50 mp will be clear on a casual glance. But lets see...

I wonder if that is enough to lead to a pink 5DIV? 

Yeah, because Diane Arbus, Joyce Tenneson, Mary Ellen Mark, Margaret Bourke Wright, Rineke Dijkstra, etc., etc., picked their cameras for its color.

Let's cut the stupid, sexist comments.

Its just a joke.

I am actually a full time self employed photographer, which means I spend about one day a week actually taking photos.

The best reply EVER!

I work as cinematographer in movies. When free I take photos avidly - almost always carry a camera with me. So am lucky enough to work with gear almost throughout. :)
