Bummer, you're going to have to advertise the camera and lens as an 8+ on the buy & sell and disclose the teeth marks!

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

if 70d is indeed gaining "everything" from 7d except fps, size, weight (basically body) it might be the one for me. Especially interested in the viewfinder and AF.

Didn't the rumor the other day suggest that the 7D2 would be closer to 11 or 12 FPS?  Which leaves room for a 70D with new Sensor, Digic 5 1 or 2 of them with 8FPS still  and 19pt AF.   For those who want it there is still an upgrade of 4 FPS and a heck of a lot of AF points.

Is Auto Focus micro adjust something most people seem to need?   Could this explain why my Nifty Fifty on my 450D sometimes seems just a little bit off?

We should do a lottery - my bet it'll be the same 18mp sensor, and this would be no reason to cheer. When they introduce new tech, it'll in more expensive bodies, and then they'll at least do 19-20mp just for marketing reasons.

I agree 1000% this year they offer the cross type auto focus with Digic 5 as an improvement in a few months when 7D2 is announced with new sensor etc etc making it king of the APC hill they can then trickle down that sensor in another year or so like they did with T3i ETC.....    call the T4i this current generation of apc-s sensor's swan song.

I'm sorry but I've never seen an explanation of the benefit of Cross Type AF points could someone quickly explain?

Software & Accessories / Photoshop CS6 Beta?
« on: May 17, 2012, 09:47:23 AM »
I am currently using CS6 Beta and was trying to figure 2 things,

I am trying to use Iris blur and notice that several different filters and features in the the light grey that can not be clicked on and I'm wondering if I just have the wrong tool selected?

second is if one day it will just stop working?  With the release of the final version.  I have older photoshop elements software and would like to keep using CS6,  do I need to disable it from reaching the internet somehow so it can't be locked down remotely if adobe even does that?  I Had thought it will only work for 60 days but mine seems to still be going.

Sounds like an amazing camera, I for sure am interested, also curious to see how the rest of the line up below the Mk2 changes.  I'd guess a year after its release my a 70D with the same sensor and 6FPS

EOS Bodies / For those interested in 7D2

It seems that in most of these thread's about new body's everyone will be happy if the price goes up 1000 dollars over current 7D body's pricing.  I personally am a hobby shooter with about 4 weddings lined up as the 2nd shooter this summer.   The thought of spending close to or more than 2g's for a camera is my max budget.   That being said I wanted to know what people do for money that makes a 2500 dollar pro-sumer body a good deal?

115
I have to disagree with many on this forum everyone seems to think that everything is going up market that prices have to rise with new features.   I couldn't disagree more.  The 7D being pro-sumer right now and being the next camera I want to buy I could never imagine spending more than 1900 with that being list price.    Even after reading on here that it will have a new generation of sensor some keep saying the 650D will have the same one.  This from my understanding will not be true and it makes a lot of sense.   For example

Release Order
650D with old 18mp sensor but other upgrades like old 7D AF
Mirorless
7D2 with New sensor dual digic 5 and better AF lets it then stand out above the rest of the lineup and allows a year or longer before the new fancy sensor gets passed down to the rebels.
Big Mega Pixel FF

Back to my original soap box, I don't know what everyone here does for a living but if you move the 7D2 up in price 2000+ then its no longer a consumer camera.

After the last year, nothing Canon may do will surprise me.


I have no interest in a full-frame body. Like I've said before, I'd rather have a top end mid-size car than a stripped-down full-sized version. If I'm honest with myself

You make a great point and that's the direction that I'll probably go in as well, I'd rather have all the bells and whistles in a crop sensor than in a camera thats just like my 450D but with a better sensor. 

If you merged today's 60D and 7D this is roughly the specs you would get if you met in the middle of the two which I could see happening if they bring an entry full frame in at 1800 or so. 

98% View finder
20MP
7FPS
New AF hopefully like 27pt
Composite body with weather proofing
No LCD on top
ISO 100-12800 expandable to 18000 sweet spot hopefully up through 6000
Dual Digic 5





117
This is perfect  I will be replacing my 450D with this new 70D or maybe the entry level Full Frame.  Time to save some pennies.

Taken with 450D and kit lens, just ND on a few on in JPG mode using a WB cap. 





This shot taken with hand me down 70-200 EF lens from non digital canon.

Marketing-wise, it would be clever to reserve the xd name for full frame "I've got money and want to show it" bodies, along with red ring lenses - so xxd and xxx is for cheapos. And they certainly won't put the exact 7d af on xxxd bodies - Ken Rockwell would write it doesn't work right out of the box because there are so many options. But I think that more af fields might appear in the xxd line because that's what's the main problem with tracking on the 60d.

If the 7D2 never happens and mirrorless takes place basically of the XXXd entry line then the there is no harm is putting more AF points in all the camera's as long as its less than the 5D3.  I'm no math wiz but 19pts seems alot less than 63 in the high end camera's and is a good selling point over the competition or may still only have 10 pts or something.

I'm new to these forums, but what is wrong with the current T3i sensor? What could they do to make it better in the T4i? I just bought a T3i and was curious what issues people are aware of...

I have a 450D but my understanding is that it's a 3? Year or older sensor it's starting to be surpassed by competitors and I think 800 is like make ISO for clean images.
