EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7D Mark II Owners first thoughts

If you don't want to be rude - don't make this kind of statement -- because when you do, you're rude, whether you "want to be" or not.   He explained the shots, read it before you point fingers.
I admit i didn't read the previous page, as I was just fast scrolling through pages for any pictures. Ok, he explained the situation, but feels more like he was seeking excuses in "only shot in JPEG", which is just.. silly.

But this is a discussion thread, where discussion over pictures takes place. Discussion can have positive and negative comments/critics. I posted a negative one (which apparently is forbidden), as that said pictures looks like it was taken with a phone - again, as i mentioned in my previous post, it probably has to do with HEAVY CROPPING, although there was no mention on how much he cropped.

i dont want to be rude, but the above picture looks like s.hit. either it was high iso and extremely cropped, or you don't know how to properly use your equipment.

"OH WOE IS ME, some people will receive the 7D2 a few days earlier than me, OH MY GAWD. I will not be able to brag sooner than them and my cats will not have new pictures, have mercy!!"

really people? really? in Slovenia, we won't see the darn thing before mid of December.

That's respectable from a 'look how close APS-C can get to FF these days!' perspective.
that respect was already earned by 70D 14 months ago.

juvenile video. A6000 and 11fps, ok. but doesn't have a state of the art AF to keep track of fast, erratic moving subjects like D4s and 1Dx have. not weather sealed, etc. and there are so many more reasons this video is just.. meh. especially the social media part and stealing thunder.. that part was just plain funny.

but as long as a6000 is enough for his needs, thats fine.

APS-C is never as sharp as FF, even at ISO100, no way you can expect they would be on equal terms at 800-3200, where noise is a lot more visible and apparent on APS-C than on FF. More noise, less sharpness and less contrast.

In other words.. JPEG just about the same as 70D from 100-6400, maybe 1/3 of an improvement, depends where on the picture you look. I was hoping they would improve noise reduction algorytm for JPEG.

images look strong at that High ISO because they were all shot in practically good light conditions. Same ISO in poorly lit gyms shooting fast moving subjects like f.e. basketball/handball sprinters.. that's another story.

and as it has been written in the comment section in that video.. it's more of a commercial to the 7D2 than a review.

extremely sloppy comparison.

edit: nevermind, my fault in my extremely sloppy reading

Is it just me or his Blog is a mess!? I like the info, but I have rarely seen a blog that is so uncomfortable to read...
I thought I was the only one. Agree, his blog is a freaking riot.

already 2 errors in the review.. 22MP and Dual Digic6+ (PLUS). No, it's a 20.2MP and it has Dual Digic6. Let's read onward..

2016 would be the year of 80D, if we look at the previous xxD release cycles.
Hopefully the Rebels start getting more than 9 AF points around that time.
yes, 11 point AF from the 6D!

EOS Bodies / Re: No EOS-1D X Replacement in 2014 [CR2]
« on: September 29, 2014, 09:35:06 AM »
But when?

I'm mostly curious about the 5D replacement.  Spring or not?
Not spring. Canon has to milk buyers with the 7D2 for a year or so. If they released 5D4 with 7D2's AF feature in spring (5 months after 7D2 got released (not introduced)), who would buy the 7D2, if the 5D4 offers same or even tweaked AF with slightly lower frame, but better IQ?

I find it strange they haven't introduced a new rebel yet. It's been 18 months now.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II: More High ISO Samples
« on: September 28, 2014, 03:30:56 AM »
until i see indoor action (sport) images in poorly lit gymnasiums, i will not call 7DII to be an improvement in High ISO department over the 70D. daily high ISO shots don't show nothing, neither do well lit structures at night.
