EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Body upgrade - Florida trip
« on: July 01, 2013, 03:49:12 AM »
I dont have either camera, 7D or 6D (I use a 550D), but I do read a lot about gear, so I think I can comment here. Especially on the autofocus part, because from people that actually use it, they say that as long as they use the center point, the camera is actually very very capable AF wise. Fast and accurate.
If I was in your shoes, I´d go 6D, no hesitation.  :)

EOS Bodies / Re: Any news on the SL1 sensor?
« on: May 13, 2013, 01:50:44 AM »
So, it seems then that the only improvement, if any, over the good old 18mp sensor is down to processing power.
The SL1 is not for me anyway, but I did hope it would give us a taste of the new generation of Canon sensors.
Well well, my 550D still soldiers on bravely :)

I hope Sigma comes with a TS - lens in their Art series.

EOS Bodies / Any news on the SL1 sensor?
« on: May 05, 2013, 03:42:53 AM »
The rumors says the 70D and the SL1 are going to have the same sensor, I´m quite interested in how the sensor performs. The SL1 is already out there, but I have yet to find any sensor/camera reviews testing for high ISO, DR etc.
Anyone knows?

If/when Sigma updates their 50 1.4 into the Art line, they should make it a f/1.2 just to annoy Canon. Would be awesome!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D MK3 or 6D Replacements... when?

It is said that the Canon big MP camera is to be announced this year. I bet it is gonna be very pricy, and since you are happy with you 7D for now, I´d continue to save up money, so you´d have the cash when they release the camera.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: DxOMark trashes the Leica M9 sensor

now where did i put that bag of salt...  ;)

+100 c;

I've never even cared for DxO marks tbh, and dont get why anyone does, photographys an art, not a game of top trumps >.>

I might be wrong here, but isn´t the DxO marks´s test results only a "side effect" from the making of their RAW - converter, Capture One? Studying the behavior of lenses and cameras/sensors they can implement corrections in the raw converter and so on. This study of lenses and sensors also gives a score, the DxO mark score we all argue about.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Information [CR1]

Integrated grip and a high-density AF sensor?  Very, very interested.  Throw in noticeably better high ISO performance than the current 7D and I'm sold...

I hope this will come through. If so, Canon takes the 7D to a truly professional level, way beyond the old 7D. I like that, and an integrated grip on an APS-C camera is new. Canon need to get back to be innovators, not followers as they have been for a little while.

EOS Bodies / Re: Bodies and cell towers?
« on: February 26, 2013, 01:46:02 PM »
I put my camera (550D) in the X-ray machine at work the other day, and gave it a really really good dose of radiation. No harm at all to the camera. I don´t think a cell tower should do any harm at all.

Tried to clean the contacts on the lens and body? Perhaps just some dirt on the contacts.

Oh well... my rebel still works perfectly. ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: Where are you EOS 70D?
« on: January 27, 2013, 03:44:29 AM »
Ahh. You are right!

It is kind of annoying when accounts are telling engineers what they can and can not do. As I stated in another thread, the 6D is not for me (even though I might end up with one in a year or two due to $$, only a hobbyist here...). So, why dont I like the 6D, even though it probably is a great camera! Because it is not as good as it could be. I dont even think the 5D3 is as good as it could be. It is specced to fit a place in the marked, and priced to make the absolute most money. Perhaps the dSLR segment need more competition, as there are only two real competitors, Canon and Nikon.

Imho it's a disgrace Canon cut the swivel screen from the 6d, I doubt there is any other reason than to protect the 5d3 - after all, a swivel screen is very nice for video and that's supposed to be the 5d3's strength. Of course wifi isn't a real replacement.

Yesterday I shot macro near the ground in the snow, I couldn't have done that with the 6d - I'm happy to lie flat in the mud to get good shots, but not in the freezing snow for an extended time :-(

The 5D3 does not have an articulated screen. 60D does.

EOS Bodies / Re: Are you really serious about 6D?
« on: January 14, 2013, 06:09:17 AM »
Please help me understand why people are excited about 6D? I cannot be excited about 97% VF, 1 x-pt AF, crippled 6D with wifi and facebook buttons. I will stick to a 5-year-old beloved 5D Mark II which is identical in IQ to Canon's newest sensors. Canon, you are not getting a dime of my money on your recent cameras. I have diversified my lenses so am not hostage to inferior sensors anymore.

I am not excited about the 6D, even though I might end up buying one in a year or so. Depending on what´s avaliable. How come I´m not excited? Well, I dont think they built the camera to be as good as it could be. As a tool, reviews on its own it is probably very ver capable. Looking at it compared to other cameras, not much so. It cost a shedload of money, and still my Rebel has a faster flash sync speed. Also, the VF is not 100%. Outside the 5D2 (discontinued) is it the only dSLR without 100%? And the shutter, with maximum speed of 1/4000. Why? They already have the shutter in 5D3, why not use this? It has a silent mode, like 6D, and can do 1/8000. Using this in another camera model would only make it cheaper (bigger production numbers).
Inferior autofocus, poor weather sealing, all is OK. If we need better here we got the 5D3. The VF and sync speed is to me clearly made to make it worse, to make it fit in a gap in the market, instead of making the camera as good as it can be.
I dont know... because from what I see, the 6D performs great, with IQ second to none. And that quite annoys me, because if I bought it now it would be a great companion, but back in my head I´d always hear the voice saying it could have, and should have, been a little bit better specced.
The top models should distance themselves from the cheap models by way way better specs, not by making the cheaper models deliberately worse. (does that make sense?)
Anyway, as a hobbyist, I might end up with the 6D some day, due to not wanting to spend endless amount of money on a camera body. Walking straight in to Canons trap :)
Oh, BTW, I do love my Rebel!
