EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 70D a New Benchmark in ISO Performance?
« on: July 03, 2013, 03:59:19 AM »
We couldn’t put a card in the camera because it is a pre-production unit. With that said, we were told to expect comparable ISO performance with the 7D and better color due to the new pixel structure.


quite a bummer, but I guess expectable?

There isn’t much in terms of controls here, but you should note that there is an AF assist beam, lens release, and the shutter button.

I stopped reading that "preview" when I saw that line. Lulz.  :P Obvious non Canon DSLR user 2 weeks ago...

The shots actually look better compared to the shots from previous Canon releases.  :D (Pretty ISO 100 Portrait model too ;) )

If that is actually the case the 70D is not a good choice of camera if you want the best from your expensive long primes/zooms.

Please read the specs list again.

Ignore that attention-starved guy and his click-bait video. And, oh, IBTL.  :P

It actually has 40.3 Million photodiodes to form that 20.2MP sensor.

R0x0rs: Dual-Pixel CMOS AF works for 80% of the sensor area up to f/11 & EV 0, AFMA, +/-5EV EC, ±3 AEB (2, 3, 5, 7 frames at 1/3 EV, 1/2 EV steps), stereo microphone onboard, EOS-1N level of weathersealing, Timelapse recording   (by USB cable and PC), 1/250 X-sync, fully articulated touchscreen LCD, dedicated focus area expansion button (although not programmable like the M.Fn button), wireless flash commander, fully-featured WiFi control implementation

Sux0rs: only 1 SD slot, only 98% 0.95x mag VF, only single-axis electronic level, no PC sync terminal, Rebel-class E3-type instead of N3-type remote terminal, no headphone jack, odd DOF preview button placement, JPEG-only HDR & Multi-Exposure, only 1 Custom dial setting, no AF point selection joystick

I'm waiting for the Nattering Nabobs of Negativism Band of Banding-Hunting Brothers to mention that it has obvious pattern banding at +10stops DEC & +1000 fill-light, as confirmed by Professor Professorson, PhD E.E., when pixel-voyeured at 800%...

Nice try, thanks for playing  :P. http://www.answers.com/topic/nattering-nabobs-of-negativism

Also, look up Agnew's & Safire's Wiki for your edification.  ;D

Does it have a headphone socket?

It doesn't appear to have one based on the pics I've seen, unfortunately. Also, the remote control terminal is the Rebel-class E3-type connector as opposed to the N3-type connector used by the higher-end bodies. Also, no PC sync terminal like the 60D & 6D  :-\.

Where I'm from, the market has spoken and the Σ 35/1.4 | Art, 18-35/1.8 | Art and 120-300/2.8 | Sport are all back-ordered with a few months-long waiting list, according to the authorized distro (and all 3 lenses are on my must-buy list). So my only other option is to buy it gray, which I'm reluctant to do. Even the USB Tuning Dock is not available currently.

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D Autofocus not impressive

So, to summarize this thread, the body that costs $1500 more (comparing launch MSRPs) has better AF, more features, and is an overall better camera. What a shocker!  :o

EOS Bodies / Re: POLL: What will be the 70d's price tag?
« on: June 30, 2013, 11:35:30 PM »
If they're as delusional as with the 6D MSRP (compared to the D600 specs), they'd price it the same as or even slightly higher than the D7100 MSRP (~$1300). If they want to be more competitive given its specs vs. D7100, it should be priced at or slightly lower than the 60D introductory MSRP (~$1100).

Well let's summarize the DPR forum troll-style complaints for this new body:

1. "only" 20MP, the D7100 w/ 24MP beats it! :P
2. "only" 1 card slot, and an SD slot at that, the D7100 has 2!
3. "only" 7FPS, it "won't replace my 7D"
4. only WiFi, no GPS onboard (despite D7100 not having both)
5. still appears to have an AA LPF on the sensor, the D7100 already doesn't have one!
6. no 100% VF coverage, the D7100 has it
7. "only" 19 AF pts. compared to 51 for the D7100, despite having more cross-type (19 vs. 15)
8. no f/8-capable AF center pt., unlike the D7100
9. prolly has no AFMA, dual-axis electronic level (maybe single-axis like the 6D/60D), crippled FW, etc.
10. and of course, for the band of 800% magnification pixel-peeping brothers, still has patterm banding and not as much DR as the Sony sensors, still no column-parallel ADC, yada-yada... :P

I really don’t want to oversell this new piece of technology – but I really can’t help but imagine a hundred ways it will affect the way filmmakers approach their shooting,  regardless of their budget,  in such a "game changing" way.    To be fair this new device won’t be as affordable as the Canon 5D MKII was

Something cutting-edge video DSLR feature package or new platform. Maybe a breakthrough in sensor design & ergonomics/usability as well.

Have the 6D AF bashers actually used the camera extensively? :P Otherwise it's more likely regurgitated talking points from the social media echo chamber that originated from the ID-10-T department.

From this scientific and repeatable test, it is blindingly evident that it has more consistent & precise AF than the D800, 5D2 & 7D:

I know we periodically purge old accounts as there are tens of thousands that get created during each contest, post once, and then never login again.

We'll also sometimes get a spammer that will create thousands of randomly named, or sequentially named accounts, and then abandon them once they realize they're useless since they can't post links until they've reached a certain post threshold.

Mark 5D Team III (if I'm remembering your old name right) and mreco99 don't show in the user list so they were deleted.

^^^None of those apply to me. My previous account was this: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=100

What do you mean "don't show in the user list so they were deleted"? Shouldn't that be the other way around? What are your criteria for deleting usernames? I definitely don't fall into the categories "CR Backup Admin" has mentioned. I can still search for my old posts. Yes, I'm the 100th person to register for this forum after the reformat. But I was already very active even before there was even a forum and we all just commented below the actual article. That is why I chose that username, it was an in-joke during those times before there was a forum (old-timers here would know the "joke" ;) ), same with my signature (another in-joke, used by another poster in an article comment thread then :P).
