No, no, the poll is serious! The recent APS-H sensor remarks are the joke, excuse us who make fun and then people can't tell what's serious and what isn't

Canon can't change the image sensor format of a new 7D from APS-C to APS-H or FF and still maintain the product title "7D". If anything the 7D name would be eliminated and a new name will be used.
I had been thinking about upgrading to a 5D mkIII from my 550D but it's a little out of my price range even body only. So I figured I'd look at the 7D as a few of my colleagues have it and love it. I can get it for £870 delivered body only, however just a couple of things from me pushing the "checkout" button on the site.
I do a lot of night time, night time HDR, panoramic photography and just wondered if the 7D would be up to the job for this. I often do long exposures, in a few shots i've done 20-30 minute exposures on a beach at night and while the 550D was good it wasn't quite perfect, so I wouldn't want to upgrade and lose that performance i have currently.
The one area where I know it will help is my sports photography. I shoot most sports, football, rugby, golf, motor racing, aqua sports (kite surfing, jet skiing, motor boat races)..So I'm 100% it will fulfill it's purpose on that front.
Was just wondering about the low light. These are my 3 main lenses...
Sigma 10-20mm f3.5
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0 L
Canon EF 70-200mm F/4.0 L IS
Anyone using a 7D who maybe can advise?
$635 is not bad at all. You can still buy them new at $1699, so $1k less is just fine. Look for a seller who has low useage/low shutter count, and a return policy.
Thanks so much @bdunbar79 & @tron for your assistance. Is 182 rolls of film a lot for a 1V? They want $500.00 for it, and it doesn't come with the PB-E2 Booster. So it's not considered the HS.
Ever since it was released, the 5D3 appears to have received more criticism than praise. Canon in this case did make many people feel betrayed by cutting corners on a number of things, the SD card being one of them. This is not the first time they did this (remembering the AF on 5D2) and they will continue doing this. So are many other companies. Unless someone does it differently, by including all the best features on a second of the line product, we will have to accept the reality. I just hope Canon would not quickly abandon the 5D3 within a couple of years or so.
You can't please everyone, there will always be critics. I don't know if I'd call it betrayed, what were people expecting? You only can put so many features on a 2nd tier camera, you have to draw the line somewhere. That's why there's the 1 series and the 5 series.
Betrayed - by putting the twin cards of the top of the range 1D4 in the 5DIII
Some people's expections are so unrealistic
Wait, all the 1DX owners will be betrayed too by the 5DIII stealing the AF system.
my shots are underexposed with the lens cap onDon't turn the LCD light on when you are taking pictures of your lens cap then
Set Safety Shift - Enable, ISO
Av = 6.3
ISO = Auto
Enable Shutter speed range,
Worked fantastic. Wish the 5D III had this feature. Thanks for the great tip.
The 1D4 is a great camera that has many advanced features that are not obvious from the spec sheet. Until you start shooting with one the gap between a 1 series and the rest is not obvious that difference is very significant.
Other features worth exploring is the constant AF and setting the low speed continuous to 6fps (or whatever suits you). I find I get more keepers this way - but I am shooting slower, more predictable animals.
Yeah, the 50L is definitely worth the money if you can afford it, I have no bad feelings about buying this lens, it's definitely the most used lens I have too, among quite a few nice ones. I still hope they release a new version soon that has a slightly different design. But, I must say, shooting with it on the 5D3 is far different (better) than shooting with it on the 5D2. But, I never had too many problems with the 5D2 either. It's a very dreamy lens, that the other Canon 50s cannot compare to really. It's sharp, plenty sharp enough at f/8, but you don't really buy this sort of f/1.2 lens to judge it at f/8, as it is, it's fine enough there. It's still the best at f/1.2 to f/2.2 or so. And that's like where I shoot with this lens about 99% of the time.
likely to generate long threads full of flames, trolls, and endless - and pointless - discussion and churn.
