This is a gag post, right? I went to CR and the Onion site breaks out.

Just don't believe it. If they are looking at MF now they're about twenty five years too late.
My thoughts exactly.
Developing a medium format camera today is way more complicated than it was in the film days and the market is much smaller and shrinking all the time. If Canon and Nikon were uninterested in medium format when it was actually a viable market, why would they invest in it now?
On another thread, I posted a reference to an estimate from Leica that the worldwide market for medium format is only 6,000 units annually. Hasselblad has a grand total of 180 employees according to their own website, not exactly a huge operation.
There are other markets that are far more promising.
I'll go out on the proverbial limb here and recommend the Panasonic Lumix FZ200 bridge camera, which I own. It has an equivalent 25-600/2.8 constant aperture zoom and provides plenty of IQ for situations like this. And ... no one would ever think you were a "professional" with this camera!
See if he has any beachfront property in MemphisI enjoy both zooms and primes. But to say an improved 100-400 will make the 400 prime effectively replaced, well there are many prime tele shooters (BIRDERS!) who will have a field day with that comment. I think they both have their place.Rent them both
Now, which will I get?
That my friend is the real conundrum.
I tried but Roger said he didn't have any Unicorns farting rainbows.
I tried a few resources yesterday and I couldn't find a program or website that would give me the sitter count on a 7d. I have used astro jargon before, but alas, not compatible with the 7d.I have Macs at home, and this one worked fine for my 7D:
Anyone want to point me in the right direction?
Canon Shutter Actuation App for Mac
Plenty of others out there if you Google for "Canon EOS Shutter Count".
Thanks. I'll give it a look when I get home. I only have Windows, but hopefully I'll find something
I suppose my thing is pronouns; They're such simple things that I can't understand why people get them wrong - that drives me crazy!
I read one quote someone made on YouTube that I agreed with. The groom should have leaned into the priests ear and said something like "I'm paying the photographers much like I'm paying you, please continue. And..if you do walk out, I'll sue your ass off, now, please get back to marrying us..."
You, I read the USC article. The Toms Hardware writer made subtle modifications and left out relevant facts to make it fit his views.I'd like to point out that UCSD is the public University of California-San Diego while USC is the private University of Southern California located in Los Angeles.
The image had nothing to do with any cell phone.
USC Science did not fail, and if the OP had read the USC article first, he should have spotted the alteration of the USC paper. Its not fair to blame USC for a article written by someone else that is misquoted and omits crucial information. The blame falls on Toms Hardware and their employment of a incompetent writer who set out to prove a point.
Wouldn't the "feature" that the OP is asking for defeat the purpose of Manual mode? Why not set the ISO himself, bumping it up or down to obtain the level of exposure according to taste.He is probably shooting in changing light conditions (bird flying). Probably more or less against the light so he wants M with Auto ISO and EC to be applied on top of that. Cant be done on a 5D3. You can do exposure bracketing but no EC
