a wifi interface where the tablet IS the screen/buttons/dials of the camera body.
Looking at the Northlight website and going back quite a few months there seems to be a lot of "throw mud at the wall and see if it sticks" going on.Don't forget that northlight said that the release of the 7D2 was only a month or so away....... And announced that a year and a half ago..... With a spec list that was inferior to the 70D and no mention of DPAF. I don't believe anything they claim.
I'm sure replacements are in the works. When will we see them is the question...so in the meantime enjoy what you've got.
It is a very safe bet that Canon, Nikon, and Sony are spying on each other. Industrial espionage is a big thing.
And, Merlin is telling them what will be useful in 5 years as well as what the competition is planning. Or better yet, Tom Cruise is an agent of Canon (cue MI theme music), covertly breaking into both Sony & Nikon camps so that Canon can stay 2 steps ahead of the competition.
I'd argue with you about the amount of data to process being too much....I posted this in another 7D mk II thread but wanted to mention it here as well. I have decided that I would be willing to bet money (if I had any money) that this camera will have 30+ MP, and that, in Q1 of 2015, a camera will be released from Canon which will have 40-50 MP. Call me crazy.
It might go 23-24mp, anything higher in a APS-C would cause big technical issues trying to achieve a 10 fps speed. The amount of data to process is too much.
Since it will have likely have dual pixel technology, you could claim that its 50mp, but the dual pixel output is combined before saving to a memory card. There is a possibility that those dual pixels will do more than autofocus, like improving DR, but the specs will be in the low 20 mp range.
agreed... and it's a safe bet that the design teams are already over a year into the 7D3 and that the 5D5 and 1DX3 teams are already started... I can't see the project taking less than 5 years.In any event, I doubt very much if a name for the next 1 series body is set, and any specifications are merely paper goals.
Are you serious?
These cameras are planned out 3 to 4 (or more) years in advance. At this stage they'll testing and validating the design(s) of the hardware and software so that later this year they can issue instructions for manufacturing lines to start "printing" the cameras for sale next year.
Don, if you are referring to the 2nd photo, I believe that is a mandarin duck. They, like the wood duck you shot, are very beautiful. A put a few side view shots to help. I used to mix them up too! The 1st duck is a mandarin; the 2nd, a wood duck. Thanks for the kind word though.I had never heard of a meandering duck. It is magnificent!
Hey, that worked! Here a few of my bird portraits. Any constructive critique is welcome! Thanks for the time.The wood duck is SUPERB!!!! way more colourful than the ones around here.....
Agree with Neuro for the most part. If you are a competent photog who pushes the limits of your gear, reducing the limits of the gear will lead to better shots, less missed shots, more salvageable shots in poor light, etc.I can honestly say that I really didn't understand the limits of AF until I started to get into BIF pictures.... gear does matter!
But if you don't understand the basics, upgrading from a Rebel to a 5D3 won't do you much good. "I don't understand the autofocus points so I get a lot of blurry shots, but wow, look at that color..."
