So it's being referred to as the 1dx light. that's not surprising, they said the same thing with the 40d and 1dmk3, and i bet the same about others as well.
Not like i forgot, but watching this video reaffirmed to me the differences between pros and everyone else. Here Scott about losses it because he thought he lost his "lock" button. I have no idea what a lock button is,what it's for, do i even have one currently? i have no idea and i bet most of us don't either. But to Scott and guys who run like him, it's big. Then scott misspoke a few times and said something like 24mp. well, to him he probably doesn't really give a damn, as long as it's in the ballpark of what's the norm. But to some at home, that would be a pretty big thing, an extra 4million pixels? sweet!! That doesn't count for Jrista. He's on the hunt for a sign that canon is dumping money into their sensor tech, not really a few more MP. Same goes for RAW -vs- jpg. scott and his crew don't really care about RAW performance. You could squeeze out 2stops of DR/ ISO out of a RAW file and they won't care. they don't have time for that. Basically they want it to work as expected, no surprises, nail focus, have a long lasting battery and be dead reliable.
when these guys start really getting excited over it being such a great thing it is to have a 1.6 crop, my mind started to wander. really, ?! it's great! sure, if you say so.. care to swap me for your 1dx? And mom and dad don't HAVE to buy a 1dx to take photos of their kids playing sports? really? that's.....well,that's just retarded, and i'm not going to touch that one.
all that said, i've never heard of scott kelby before this but he seems like he's probably a good guy.
just a quick question, does the 7dmk2 have bright AF points or are we going to pretend that isn't a thing again?
one more, is anyone out there going to mention the insane awesomeness that they are claiming to do with indoor arena lighting? I'm at a loss for how little attention this is getting. it looks to be as cool as velcro laces!
