Pls advice, I need it. Thx!!

EOS Bodies / Re: Will the next xD cameras do 4k?
« on: February 12, 2014, 12:34:33 PM »
And 4K is not new.... GoPro has had it for a year now..... It was inevitable that someone would come out with it in a DSLR or a mirrorless camera, Panasonic just happens to be the first. Others will follow. Today it is a niche, tomorrow it will be a standard feature.
We need to stop using the GoPro example - at only 15fps, it's still not viable video. 

Yes, it's inevitable for 4K video to show up in something, just like it's inevitable that Canon, Nikon, etc. will keep raising the megapixel count in their cameras.  However, Canon has a habit of reserving better video features for higher-end cameras to avoid cannibalizing their own products, e.g. the 1DC having clean HDMI, but not the 1DX.  Certain other companies (I'm looking at you, Nikon) have nothing to cannibalize and might beat Canon to the 4K-in-a-DSLR milestone, just like they technically beat Canon to clean HDMI out with the D800 vs. the 5D3, and Canon had to play catch-up.

I went to one of my son's soccer games and forgot to turn mirror lock off.  I was getting mad wondering why my slow camera had gotten a lot slower.   :-[

I've also done the lens cap thing, but my favorite is when there is a lot of action at an event and I forget to look at the meter in the view finder.  I get wrapped up in what's going on that I forget to look at what my camera is telling me before I click away.  I've had many shots that look like a nuclear bomb is going off next to the person I'm taking a picture of.   :D

and that's one more reason I'm not a professional photog.

You would be amazed at the number of times 'professionals' forget to check meter, shutter speed, ISO before taking a photo.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D vs. 70D: Which has better image quality?
« on: February 07, 2014, 11:31:02 AM »
But the question of this thread is about IQ, not AF.

Accurate focus is critical for image quality.

I was waiting for this comment from you Neuro. :) Both cameras do not interest me but I scrolled through the thread just to find this comment from you.

Very good!
I am also looking forward to a higher resolution body, even though I am not very tempted by the 800.

I have practiced my focusing skills through the viewfinder for a while now and from f2 I get an acceptable amount of keepers. Wider than that is a bit of a gamble. I am tempted to install the EcS focusing screen in my 1DX and see how that works.

I've ordered the Ec-A screen so we can swap experiences later.

The screen does not help at all. At least not to me... So miss the older split screen types. My XE2 has FANTASTIC manual focus aids...

You look cool indeed....

I do wonder, without much knowledge of the assignment you were on, if you really needed so much gear. I am sure it slows you down and for sure prevents you from getting quick low angles where you need to be on your elbows or knees.

Mega pixels counts will increase over time. Even if it is small amounts.

My take on menu systems is that it does not matter. It is all about getting used to. People use different phones, cameras, computer operating systems etc and get used to the menu with use and a study of the manual.

Onces they are used to it they get by just fine. But when they change device they have to re-learn and feel that the earlier system was easier until they time they learn the new system and are comfortable again.

I bought it because:
I got it for $1000 cheaper. PLUS  1Battery 2 128gb CF cards and an onboard monitor thrown in for free!!
I also got a confirmed 40 days rental Feb end onwards. Will also eventually sell my 1dx. These factors made it possible for me.

I am shooting a feature in Italy Feb end onwards on Alexia as DOP. The 1dC will work as my second camera. Works well for me as I will use (and get rental) on my Zeiss 15, 35 and 135.
