EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 70D Announced
« on: July 02, 2013, 01:51:07 AM »
Impressive specs list at a fair price $1190... Finally Canon realize they have a strong competitor ( Nikon) and starting to give more technology at fair prices.

Definitely is room for 7Dmk2.

The specs of the 70D from my point of view bring into question the possibility that 7Dmk2 to be APS-H, thought as a real backup camera for 1Dx, and priced somewhere at $2500.

What about Canon 8D?

http://www.fotoplus.su/catalog/photo/canon/5542/

As the 70D along with 8D was present on this site hours before the 70D specs leaked, I wouldn't be suprised if 8D also gets announced, and 7D2 will be a whole different body with different sensor.

What if 70D is like 60D in quality and AFMA, and 8D is like a more robust 7D, and 7D2 is something even better next year, even with a new and bigger sensor.


Too many DSLR's body's ... If Canon will introduce a new body/camera category in the current range almost certainly will be a Big megapixel monster for studio and fashion use, not another pro-summer body.

The 70D clearly pack some features, a real upgrade for the 60D.

Looking at the body type,construction and features 70D will not be the king of APS-C.

I believe 7Dmk2 will have THE SAME 20.2 MP sensor but with some extra features like fps , AF, body construction , dual card slots, etc.

In my opinion 70D nice features and specs are a normal/expected response to the competition.

So the 70D is a good step ahead.... autofocus with 19 cross points and 5Xfaster live view.... a bump up in ISO and # of pixels... WiFi..... This makes the 7D a very lame duck... perhaps even a dead duck...

This can only mean only one of two things.... that the 7D line is to be discontinued, or that the 7D2 will be a SIGNIFICANT step up over the 7D... I'm hoping for the latter!

BIG +1

You have spared me to write exact the words quoted above.

Am I missing something or the Fuji X100S Image quality is on pair with full frame cameras regarding high ISO performance, despite the fact that is using an APS-C sensor.....

This camera is really that good?.... in real life situations?

there are only two possibilities here:

1. a Photoshoped strap ...resulting in a clever joke.

2. Canon intentionally leaked the photo ( see 5D3 photo leaks... the body turned out exactly as in the leaked pictures)

Nobody wears a camera strap out in the public saying:...Hey! I test the newest Canon DSLR prototype.

P.S. Eventually Canon must come with a serious competitor to Nikon D800 regarding studio work.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS not good for NASA?
« on: May 07, 2013, 04:03:18 PM »
It's not a secret that NASA uses Nikon cameras and lenses (http://www.nikon.com/news/2009/1221_NASA-D3S_01.htm) after using Hasselblad cameras during the Apollo mission.
Could we reveal the reason?


very, very simple reason:

Hassy has a bigger camera body ( more easy to manipulate the settings in a space suit)

Nikon sensors have better DR than Canon.... and in space this performance is crucial.

Yes it must be the DR. NASA has been awaiting that for years up until last year when Nikon introduced the D800...

Do you believe yourself what you're writing?


You.... again  :-\

They use MF because they destroy anything 35mm can offer for what they do. Period.

Sync speeds, leaf shutters, massive sensor size, exceptional glass, and a sense of seriousness for client PR.

I find it amusing when some compared high MP 35mm to MF, its no comparison at all.

:)) you are so funny..... really,really.... the things that are important to me:

1. DR ( and yes those 3 extra stops make the difference)
2. Resolution. In what i do (commercial,product) size matters ( like in other cases  :P )

let me put it this way.... why the top Pro photographers shoot only with Hassyes and MF cameras ???  8) 8)

Emphasis on your words 'IN WHAT I DO'. That doesn't encompass everbody. I don't see many pros using MF and Hasselblad at sports events. Correct tools for the job etc.
I completely agree, I asked what kind of work he or she is doing, but no response. Art photography? Well I don't know man. Is it really those extra stops of DR that make him lose customers?

The answer is in the first post ... and here marked with blue  ;)

In what i do ( commercial,product and fashion, NOT Weddings and sports) the best camera is a MF camera ( but at the moment i don't afford to spend over 20k on such gear). The reason i thinking to switch on Nikon is that the D800 is way better than 5D3 ( in photography area mentioned above). I don't need fast fps , high ISO performance ( and yes, 5D is Better than D800 over ISO 6400, but i very rarely go above ISO 400).

PS.Hobby Shooter.....  try to be little more informed before making a statement, and definitely more civilized in your posts.

Hey folks,
I'been waiting so long fot the 70d.... now it's again some more weeks away-at least. :-(

Looks like I'm finally going to switch to Nikon after 8 YEARS Canon... and now i'm wondering who else?
Anyone else out there who takes the consequences of the missing features or am i the only one?



Just wondering....

I agree with you.... i am with Canon for 12 YEARS ;). with the exception of 1DX Nikon is better (overall). i will wait to see the new 7D2.... after that i will make the final decision: stay with Canon or switch to Nikon.
65% of my total income is made out of photography... I can not afford to think sentimental when is my future involved.
Really? I mean really really? Check out dritcastle's quote below and take a moment to think about it.

I am only an amateur, but with you being the experienced pro, I really wonder what kind of pictures you take. There are often golf analogies on this forum, good for me as I am a golfer myself. The gear is one thing, technique is the most important thing whatever it comes to. Tiger Woods is the best golfer who has ever lived on the planet and I can assure you he would still be winning tournaments with just about any clubs in the bag.

On this forum we have experienced pros like PWP and some other guys that still shoot Canon even though they apparently suck. Please tell me you compare yourself to them and that your skills are so much greater than theirs and that your results depend so much on that extra little DR (or whatever) you can get out of the gear. If not, then take some time to sit down and think about what you're trying to accomplish and why you (apparently) are not.

I agree that CR is an amazing photo community. But as with all spec-centric forums, people tend to overemphasize the importance of the latest/greatest gear. All the latest Canon and Nikon DSLRs are amazing. People fretting over "Canon vs. Nikon" are splitting hairs. Both brands are amazing. It's great to hear about the relative strengths and weaknesses, but those marginal differences rarely hold back good photographers.

Seems like the XXD line is back on track.
At $1199 i believe the XXD line will stay where is now. on those specs nothing about body construction and AF. I believe 70D will be slightly bigger but will have the same construction as the current 60D.
