You are aware this site is called canon RUMORS yes?
70D... hmmm... let me think about this for 0.1 seconds. It doesn't exist, it may actually not ever exist. Sure canon will likely bring something new to the market by christmas (but wait, that could be next year for all we know), but does one want to wait that long? I wouldn't, I'd go insane.
Im glad I jumped ship and have a 7D and not waiting on nikon's replacement for the d300s! - Waiting?... .... Still waiting...
Its not worth it, just get something.
Just a point of curiosity.
Why does anyone think Canon will create a new camera and call it a 70D?
Frankly, I'm bewildered by non-stop talk of a 70D camera. Where did this idea originate? Has there been some credible leak or a well-sourced rumor? Or is it all pure fantasy?
At this point, I leaning toward believing a 1DX may enter the realm of reality. But something called a 70D?
I think it is because of the 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, and the 60D. A 70D does seem very likely but not absolutely guaranteed occurance.
Nice production, but the clip of the beach looked out of focus. I viewed it a second time, and perhaps it was just a extreme shallow depth of field. I thought it detracted somewhat from the whole, but overall, a impressive piece.
If you don't want to wait 6 months or however long then go 7D if both are a possibility I wouldn't even waste my time with a 60D. Also Canon Loyalty program charges about 1000 for a 7D body if they are in stock.
Don't make decisions based on rumors, if you need a camera now get whatever suits your needs the best (and is readily available). No one can tell you when we'll see a 70D for sure, but if I had to guess I'd say September (Photokina).
Excellent video, really well shot, just one teeny tiny constructive suggestion for the opening sequence from about 12 to 15 seconds timeline - the 'wipe' transitions detract from the rest of the video where your straight cuts work really well, best to use cross dissolves instead (or fade to black). I personally know 2 TV professionals, one an editor for current affairs at a national broadcaster, and the other is an Executive Series Producer on a fashion program, both say never ever use wipes if it can be helped (they scream hey I've discovered a new video effect in my editing software), unless it is for dramatic effect e.g. a radial wipe to suggest the passage of time etc.
Numerous training tutorials (Lynda.com for instance, I've watched most of their tutorials on After Effects & Premiere Pro) say the same; stick with straight cuts and then cross-dissolves for sequence changes (exterior to interior or wide to close-up). Those early wipes detract from the overall production, especially when you watch on a 40-inch 1080p monitor, they make the viewer feel dizzy.
Otherwise, well done for a top notch job, really impressive.
Cgdillan - sure always open to constructive criticism. Can you be more specific though? I don't see any over or underexposure areas and subject lighting looks OK on this end. The skin tone of the male subject is a bit more pink than average but that's how he appears in real life. Note his girlfriend's skin tone, quite different and both within the same pic. Also, the pic is in fact on flickr, known for slight destruction of the photos..will await your comments though .
Here's another graduation shot (after party at a neighbor's house) with the 5D Mark III and the Canon 1.4 50mm.

Note: Once you click the photo, the distortion in Chelsea's hair is gone.
A last minute video shot for Trinity Home and Investment
I too would like to add my praise for this...VERY well done!!
May I ask what lenses you were using? I've seen you post what glides, lights..etc...but am curious as to what lenses you used with this shot.
I would be interested in trying something like this in my area of the US too...
Thank you very much =-) It's always encouraging to hear good things about your work.
5D mkIII with Bower 14mm f/2.8:
- basic pans
5D mkIII with 24-105mm f/4L: - somewhere between 35 and 50mm
- Host Shots
My partner was on the konova slider with 60D and tokina 11-16mm f/2.8
we also had a 2nd angle of the host that was the 60D and Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 OS for a tight shot but decided it didn't fit.
Post processed in premiere pro cs6 (to test it out and see how it works vs fcp x) and graded in MB Looks
Thank you for the reply.
I'm new to the DSLR game myself, just got a 5D3. I'm looking to get some wide angle lenses. I'm still trying to figure out how to rate, or discern what non canon lenses are good to get.
I'd not heard of the Bower till you mentioned it, looked it up on amazon.com, but not much info there and no ratings.
How would you rate this lens on the Canon? Will it auto focus or strictly manual? The price certainly is right!! How would this rank vs the canon 14mm do you think?
Again, thank you for the replies and info!!
