Good job, but I find most of these photos bit too tight.

EOS Bodies / Re: Can Canon deliver a FF sensor that is class leading?

I am sure it can. And I hope it does soon.

Nice work Yorgasor

OK I give up! - "Why isn't Canon working on DSLRs with higher dynamic range"??????
Am I missing something? I have yet to have problems  with the Dynamic range capabilities of any Canon DSLR that I have owned.
Am I just exposing properly?
You are simply just shooting scenes that don't have a lot of DR and avoiding all the ones that do.

I've shot many scenes where the 11-12 stops of DR my Canon sensor could capture was insufficient.  However, for the vast majority of those scenes, the 13-14 stops of DR from a SoNikon sensor would also have been insufficient.

Yes. In extreme situations no camera can provide details both in shadows and highlights. And I like this fact: It helps me create contrast vs muddy photos.

I wonder what many would say if Canon did launch a 32+ MP camera. I am sure the 32+ MP camera would be ok then because Canon would do it. In my mind it is a matter of time….

Canon as market leader don’t need an excuse to not bring a 36 mp camera to the market.

Canon sells the most camera, thus Canon makes the best cameras. How about: the majority of people live in cities where they breathe polluted air, thus air-pollution is good for us?

Or did you mean Canon is the market-leader through technological superiority? Sorry to burst that bubble, but even Olympus makes better mirrorless cameras than Canon.

My guess is they thought they wouldn’t make enough profit with a 30+ mp FF camera on top of the 1DX, 1DC, 5DIII and 6D. High mp 135 format cameras are a niche market (landscape, advertising, architecture) with competition from Nikon, Sony and from the medium format manufacturers.

And yet Canon still makes tilt & shift lenses even though the application these lenses are design for, is, according to you, a niche market. And on the flipside, Canon makes a 600mm lens, which is also a niche product. Sorry, but that argument of "niche products" never floated.

Canon has been market leader for 11 years in a row, so they know they can rely on their market research people.

Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!! Then why are sales figures down? And please don't blame the "global recession", 'cause a really decent marketing dept. would still be able to increase sales by tapping into new markets ... using niche products.

It is amazing how many people believe in this crap. :)

Somebody give our favorite guru Neuro some cough syrup. He seems to be suffering.

Thank you all for your insightful comments.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 7d2 IQ thoughts.
« on: May 26, 2014, 05:31:39 AM »
Most of you have been using Canon for long and have been following its progress.

I realize 7d2 it will be fast, responsive etc etc. but do you think the IQ will be noticeably better than Canon's latest 70D say at ISO 1200?

I am wondering when (and if ever) the latest crop cameras will be able to compare with 5d2. Is 6 years enough for technology to reach a point where new crop camera's catch up to full frame?

I would be very happy if the new 7D2 quality would be close to 5d2. Wondering if that is too much to hope for considering the frame size difference?

If you are the type of guy who always shoots in good light, or always uses a tripod, you do not need to upgrade.

If I recall, the main selling point of the 7D when it was released was it's superior redesigned AF system and FPS over the XXD. Here was a solution to those in the prosumer segment that couldn't afford a 1D series to afford a better AF system and were complaining about the old 9 point AF system. It was definitely a more action/sports/wildlife kinda camera. Right now, I would say Canon's AF offerings are on-par - so really is a 7d mark II even needed?

My question is what "big" photography related improvements could they do to an already fine piece of equipment

I don't want to sound cynical, but I hope the 7DII isn't just a 70D with the 'top end' ergonomics, just as the xxD line had up until the 60 and 70D combined a rebel interface with the larger body.

A little faster, gain a proper rear wheel + joystick, maybe lose the pop up flash.....

I identify with your fears.

Super super
