Ordered mine 3/6 body only from B&H... so i will likely not even be in the 2nd shipment i guess? =-(  808###

Ordered mine on the 6th as well but canceled and got one from a local store instead.  Thought I'd be in the third wave, but also thought that I might be getting it by the end of this coming week. Hope yours gets shipped out soon.  B&H will be closed from Apr 3-9 for Passover.  I would hope that they would really make an effort to get everyone's orders out by then.  The only hang up would be if they didn't have the inventory-which I would think they should have given the column of business they do.

I saw that. I really hope they will be able to get it out before then. Thanks! I just like the fact that I don't have to pay 7.75% tax in CA. So i hope it's worth the wait. Got some jobs coming up that it would be extremely useful on compared to my 60d for lowlight wedding videography...

Thanks guys. We shoot every wedding together and we use my 60d and t2i , his 7d and 5d mkii. I own the canon 24mm f/1.4 ii. 85mm f/1.2 ii. 50mm f/1.8 ii. 2x 70-200mm is f/2.8. Tokina 11-16 f/2.8. And bower 14mm f/2.8. And my 5d mkiii preorder on the way!  ;D we shoot all the same scene settings white balance.. Everything. Lenses are always fast and often wide open. Soooo I say he's crazy too. Thanks for the input! He's been trying to get me to sell my t2i and invest in a 7d. Or sell both cameras and get a 5d mkii. Always told him I'd wait for 5dmkiii and would probably never get a 7d unless I needed it for photography which i currently don't. So I guess it's smart to keep my 2 crop bodies since they are equal to 7d for video. And especially since I'm getting the mkiii. Thanks again!

Personally, with the shallow depth of field nature of dslrs in video, i wouldn't trust autofocus to get the focus just right and always prefer to pull focus myself. Especially with the high density and sharp displays on the 60d t2i and t3i. much nicer to pull focus on than 5dmkii and 7d.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Difference between 60d and 7d video quality
« on: March 20, 2012, 02:58:13 AM »
I shoot many wedding every year and my friend told me he likes the video footage from his 7d vs my 60d. He said the image has more depth and a more natural feeling where the 60d has a more flat feel to it. I disagree but I am wonder if anyone else shares his opinion. Are there differences in the sensor that would give the 7d a more natural feeling to its video footage?
