EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 70D & EOS 7D Mark II Speculation [CR1]

and keep an eye on this also and what canon has to counter this one

New/updated Nikon D600 specifications:

24.7MP full frame sensor
Weight: 760g (850g with battery and memory cards), the D800 weights 900g
3.2" LCD with 921K dot with ambient sensor control
HDMI output
Video compression: H264/MPEG-4
Full HD with 30p, 25p, 24p, HD with 60p, 50p, 30p, 25p
Viewfinder coverage: 100% for FX , 97% for Dx
The Nikon D600 will have built-in AF motor
The body most probably will be weather sealed
The D600 may not have built-in GPS as initially reported
ISO range: 100-6400 (with Lo-1 ISO 50 and Hi-2 ISO 25,600)
39 AF points (with an option of 11 AF points), 9 cross-type AF points
AF face detection
Exposure compensation: ±5 EV (same as the D800)
The D600 will probably use the EN-EL15 rechargeable Li-ion battery

The price of the D600 is rumored to be very low - maybe as low as $1500

to me 5d2 in a lil bit pimped body n price in sub $2000 would make it hell of a re-birth ...


Hmmm, i believe that Nikon will use an already existing (exactly the same D3X ) sensor due to the  final product price tag. If the rumors are correct a $1500-1800 is a very low price for a FF camera with those specs.

In my opinion investing in a new sensor for a quite low price camera is unlikely. More reasonable is to use an already researched  and tested ( cheap to produce due to the already existing instruments) sensor.

interesting move from Canon...they will move 70D little bit UP in the line and 7Dmk2 even more up closer and closer to the 1D4.

So essentially it will be the 5d2?  I'm not sure why they don't just drop the price of the 5d2.

Maybe a 5D2 with 7D AF. i will definitely buy one for $2000-2200.

The only thing they must do is to implement the 7D AF in the current 5D2 and change the name( say 6D, 3D) .

3 pages already and no one says there will be no 7D2 (like in many, many other posts).... what happened with the ''conspiracy theory''???

Back to the topic...

I strongly wish to remain at 18MP; regarding AF i want a 1D4 AF system, more than the ''reduced'' 61 AF points of 1Dx and 5D3....

regarding the price .... hmmm, certainly wil be over $2000

215
Given that Canon's next xxxD camera will likely have 24MP, it should be capable of answering the challenge posed by this Nikon camera.

...and very likely that Canon will ''miss the train'' if they continue to be late with the new rebel announcement.....

216
I would have been happier with 2 billion pixels and better DR.  >:(

Maybe Nikon will be interested...  ;D ;D

217
I currently use a HP workstation ( desktop) quad core processor,  8GB ram and Nvidia Quadro graphics attached to a pretty good monitor. Personally i don't like laptops for editing photos.

218
Same problem you would have with a entry level FF body. Nowadays you can buy a 5D2 body for about 1700€, but the AF alone keeps me (and many others, I guess) from buying it.
So true... And the 5D3's price keeps me from buying that one ^^
A "5D2" with a 'simple' 19 point AF like 7D, for a <2200 price would have my interest :)

I will definitely buy a 5Dmk2 (With the same specs, IQ and performance) but with 7D AF system.... i believe $2500 will be a fair price..... And for extra $1000 (5Dmk3) you will get better AF, faster shooting and better low light performance. sounds very plausible for a budget FF camera; don;t mention that canon have to change only the AF system ... not to redesign a new body to compete with nikon budget FF (if will be one).


219
More realistic will be a 7D mk2 with a APS-H sensor and 20-24 MP ( to compete with Nikon budget ff body and preserve the wildlife capabilities and extra reach reputation of the actual 7D).... move a little bit up the new 70D to compete with Nikon d300S replacement.

An APS-H 7D is a nice idea, but the big problem is that it would lack wide-angle coverage (21mm equivalent with a 16-35 and no EF-S). Manufacturing an APS-H body to compete directly with a Nikon FF body would likely lose Canon a lot of market share for this very reason.

Recent 5D mk II customers no doubt include lots of landscape/nature/architecture photographers who want full frame coverage and good IQ at a reasonable price but don't really mind the 5D II's ancient AF system. There's no reason why they would buy a 1.3x crop and lose critically important wide-angle coverage, so the new Nikon FF would be the logical upgrade path for them.

The last 7D MkII rumor on the front page of this website was that there will be no 7D Mk II.... so...

I will give you a very simple example:  one car manufacturer make a car that is predicted to sell in say... 200.000 exemplars... huge success ..... and they sell 600.000... they will interrupt the current model and they will not came out with a new generation?????

Same with 7D HUGE success ..... is not logical to interrupt the model. Maybe will be FF maybe APS-H or APS-C but 7Dmk2 will be released.

220
I can't see Canon being THAT cheap on the body, handicapping AF, lowering FPS, reducing weather sealing yes but lower quality than the 60D seems unlikely to me given the target audience.

Ultimately, Canon will be as cheap or not as the buyers dictate it - and just now, ff has the "pro" marketing sticker on it, and Canon will exploit this with a price premium as long as they can get away with it. Thus, I do see a ff high mp body next to or above the 5d3, a 5d2 successor at ~2000$, but imho a real ff entry level body is years away.

Canon's hand maybe somewhat forced by the competision in this case if Nikon does come up with a rumoured $1500 FF body.

If Nikon will come with an  $2000 ff body than maybe the new D400 will be moved one step down ( like 60D was)....

2012 will be a very interesting year.....

I suggest 100mm f/2.8 , very good IQ.

EOS Bodies / Re: New Extensive Firmware for the Canon EOS 7D? [CR1]
« on: April 21, 2012, 02:40:00 AM »
I have made a simple test using PS:

a JPG picture at 1920/1080 have 432 KB , 1280/720  have 272 KB , 640/480 124 KB.

So... the 7D dual digic 4 processors have the power to prosses 120 fps or more at 640/480 resolution.

I believe the capabilities of shooting slow motion video will move many Rebel and 60D users to the 7D. don't mention that will be a  new feature in DSLR world.

I just bought a 7D (1 week ago) impressive performance.... very fast AF and good IQ ( i shoot mostly with 100mm f/2.8 for stills and 17-40 f/4 L for video.

My images are NOT mushy or blurry; they are very sharp (specialy with the 100mm and +7 at microadjustment settings)

Regarding the new Firmware dear ''fairy'':

1. manual control over sound
2. same
3. same
4. more than 4GB filming limit
5. MAYBE 120 fps in 640/480 format video (just for fun).

224
5D3 was/is the perfect tool, but $ 3800 (where i live) is a high price for me at this time.

And the 5d3 really presents a challenge to the Canon aps-c line: the 7d is really a super rebel now as it only qualifies as poor man's 5d3 with built-in 1.6x tc. I wonder if Canon has something in the queue to re-establish a top aps-c model again.

In my opinion 60D is the super rebel. 7D is the wildlife, traveler photographer cheaper alternative ( to the 1D3, 1D4 back in 2009). Regarding the 1.6 crop frame.... in may ocasion this feature is a biiig + .

225
I had the same dilemma 7D vs 5D2. I chose 7D despite the fact that 5D2 have better IQ. the much better AF, weather sealling and 8fps made the difference. for what i do 7D IQ is pretty good (commercial use). 5D3 was/is the perfect tool, but $ 3800 (where i live) is a high price for me at this time.
