here are some from Oman, the first one showing the old commercial district of Muscat.

Rather than disseminating useless marketing fluff, Canon should give us the raw data, so we can see whether their claim is substantiated or not.They could publish a costed BOM for each of their cameras too, that would be nice.
Someone should make WiFi batteries for it....
I have not yet ever needed more than the two batteries I have, but it has been very close on one or two occasions. The ability to recharge them using some form of magic like WiFi would be amazing!
Not exactly what I meant. I meant that instead of using the Canon Wifi adapter or wifi memory cards, one can insert a battery with built in wifi instead. That way we don't have to add the bulk of the transmitter.
Ah ok. Sorry, I misunderstood. Your idea is a very good one, I have no idea whether it is technically possible, or not, but it sounds good.
I would still like Canon to find a way for me to charge my batteries when I am on a pitch or wherever. Maybe a solar charger or something else. I know I could leave the charger and battery plugged into an outlet in the media centre or such like, but quite a few things go walkabout when you do that! It is only really for all day events, but still. I guess I could just buy a third battery.
Here is Rosette nebula, in the constellation Monoceros (Unicorn), just to the east of Orion. Integration of 30x210s ISO 800 light frames, 30x darks, 30x flats, and 100x bias. Total exposure time 1h 45m.
I wanted at least twice the light frames, and it seems I could probably do much better with 60x480s ISO 400, rather than ISO 800. Next time I get the chance, which may be tonight, I'm going to give it another go, and see if I can get more dim nebulosity in the periphery.
The camera will have dual memory card slots, CF and SD. Retaining CF is a big deal and will make a lot of people happy.
How likely is this to actually happen? The 1D and 5D lines are the only ones to have dual card slots. Even the 6D uses just SD cards, which I can't stand due to how slow and flimsy they are.
I've got a 7D and 50D, and will probably replace the 50D with a 7D2 when it arrives. I'm also getting tight on CF card space, and would like to buy a new 32GB CF card before a trip in a few weeks... but not if it'll be obsolete with the new 7D2. I was really hoping we'd have a more concrete announcement by now.
Given than the 6D now uses SD cards, how likely is it that the 7D2 will use CF cards? Will they abandon the 7D1 users and cater to those upgrading from consumer bodies by using SD cards? I'm sure speed is also a consideration, since that will be a big selling point of the 7D2 over the 70D or 6D.
I see it took 4 tries to get it ready for the masses, v2.0, 2.01, 2.02, & now v2.03!
If noise from the 7D is limitting you, then now is the time to go full frame. I though the 7D was the greatest camera made...then dove I into the full frame pool with a 5D3. Now my poor 7D is neglected. The 6D is quite tempting, but I shoot sports and wanted the focussing benefits of the 5D3. Your wildlife adventures may dictate which of the two will meet your needs.
As for lenses, I bought my 5D3 with the 24-105. I don't understand all the written abuse this lens gets, my copy seems quite sharp and I love it's versatility - in both focal length and IS. However, my most used lens is the 70-200 2.8 Mk II -- which I highly recommend.
With full frame, you get less noise, sharper images (with quality lenses), and deeper color latitude. (My 5D3 produces sharper images with my 70-200 than my 7D does.) Given your current lenses, I would suggest full frame before another lens. It's really hard to appreciate the IQ benefits of full frame until you get one. You may look differently at lens options after buying a FF body.
If you do stick with crop bodies, then definately go fo the 17-55 2.8.
I think my point was that if everyone does the "not getting it until there is sufficient content" bit, there is unlikely to be a large uptake of the technology to capture, process and especially broadcast the medium.
I personally have no intention of being an early adopter, possibly not even on the crest of the wave adopter.
Not sure my eyes are HD compatible even with glasses on, let alone 4k!
IF Canon wants to stay in business with me, they better think about what I want and how they keep ME happy.
If Canon was a car company and only listened to you I'm sure this is what we would be inflicted with...
Thank god they know how to make cameras to suit the majority and run a business successfully.
