I crop and level pretty regularly when shooting sports and action....you have to.

Fractions of a degree?  That sounds like OCD to me!  ;D

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

Does anyone know why the saturation goes away when I upload?  That file looks nothing like the one on my computer that I posted.

Bdun...I'm noticing it too.   It's pretty clear on my recent volleyball photo.  Saturation, sharpness, and general IQ are not as they are on my Macbook pro.

When you click on the image it does then bring up the full res image in a separate window, and when you do that you can easily compare to see the difference.   

I looked back at several posts...another very noticeable example would be Eldar's cat image a couple pages back....it's a fine image as viewed, but once you click on it and see the full res image it's dramatically better/different. (beautiful Eldar)

Again...not a big deal but something did change recently.    I liked it better before where you were able to see a higher resolution image versus having to click on it and bring up a separate window.   They probably changed it to make it faster to the load the whole page.

This is the first time I've noticed after uploading a picture that the IQ/resolution of the image as it's displayed in the post has been reduced.  The volleyball player, #5 should be sharp, but instead she's fuzzy.   If you click on the image then you get to see the full resolution, but it didn't used to be that way. (i don't think)

Did CR change something recently relating to how images are displayed?

Also, maybe this has something to do with the question Bdun recently?

Women's college volleyball action in the Big Ten vs ACC challenge.

Volleyball is fun to shoot...the women are so emotional after they've won a big point or game...as seen here in this image.

It's pretty obvious that the 7D2 is for fast action stills shooters first and foremost...not cinematographers.

With that said, this camera finally gives fast action still shooters the ability to capture video (that isn't constantly out of focus) using the dual pixel AF capabilities.   

This camera is great for sport/action photographers that want to add some quality video to their coverage of a game/event....and this is all it's supposed to be.   Go elsewhere if you're a dedicated video shooter.

And if they'd included, or especially added to the 3x digital video crop mode that's already in the 70D, it would have been even better for sports and wildlife videos.

The lack of it has me considering whether I want this camera for the speed and focusing or the 70D for its video features and WiFi (which I'd use for camera control).

3X crop mode would have been nice for sports..you're right.

EOS Bodies / Re: High ISO Samples from the Canon EOS 7D Mark II
« on: September 19, 2014, 08:55:03 AM »
While I don't particularly care for DXO in general, I do think their "sports low light high ISO" scores are useful.  I've always understood the scores to represent a point where DXO feels high ISO starts to degrade the image.

The first image shows the current best "low light high ISO" of all brands of CROP camera bodies.  The best crop score comes from the Nikon d3300 at a score of 1385 ISO.

The second image shows the best of the Canon FF - with the 1DX clearly coming out on top, roughly a full stop better than the best crop body.

It's pretty unlikely the 7D2 will score better than these other crop bodies, so "incredible high ISO RAW images" are probably unlikely, and FF is still king in this regard.

This picture really makes me wonder what he's thinking...

Shot over this past Labor Day at the Lake Clark National Park in Alaska. Great fun! The photos are not fully processed due to my laziness but nevertheless tell the story of an amazing camera and a 300mm f/2.8 lens with extenders from time to time.

Must have been fun to capture these images...nicely done!

If this rumor is true, it seems like a similar strategy to what Nikon did with their D3X six years ago.
