Please, not another "priced out of this universe" camera body!

It does look sweet though!

PowerShot / Re: Canon to Leave the Entry Level Point & Shoot Market?
« on: March 16, 2014, 01:14:55 PM »
I'm looking at my 2 PowerShot cameras - an old A720 and an A2200.  While all the specs would be/should be better on the A2200, the A720 has a superior lens package.  The A2200 blows it away otherwise.

A720 8mpix
5.8-34.8mm f/2.8-4.8  MACRO capable focus is 1mm or closer!

A2200 14 mpix
5.0-20.0mm f/2.8-5.9

Maybe if Canon had put more effort into lens technology in these low end cameras they would take better pictures than a cell phone?  I guess the point is moot now.  :-\

I would still rather use a point and shoot camera than a cell phone...  Only advantage the phone has is the post processing features...  which may indicate I took a bad picture to begin with.  LOL

Anyway, I hope Canon can catch up to the likes of Sony, Pentax and Olympus - and FAST!  Both Nikon and Canon have fallen behind in innovative features, and in some cases current technologies.

Come on Canon, I'm routing for you!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Not Coming? [CR1]

It seems like a high end APS-C camera would have a higher profit margin than a mid-low level one.  Similar to the automobile industry, the difference between a Cadillac and a Chevy is negligible when it comes to sourcing parts, but the profit on a Cadillac is higher, because your paying for "a Cadillac".

Other than a magnesium body, what are the REAL differences between a 70D and a 7D?  The menu system for sure, but that's easy to change...  The DIGIC processor...?

My point is, they have more in common than in difference.

I hope the single memory card slot is just a prototype version...  I was looking at the new Pentax K3, and it's as good as the 7D MkI with dual card slots.  I am glad Canon is putting GPS into the new 7D.  For photographing wildlife, it's a great to know where as well as when you took the shot of some critter.

As for the rest of the feature, it's a along time coming, and I hope Canon keeps the 7D on par with the 5D and 1D series in future versions.

On the surface, this subscription model Adobe is using looks like a flop.  Kelby was giving away a full year at Photoshop World, and now this incredible deal.  I guess if your making money at this, it's better than the box purchase.   Adobe need to market this model as a SERVICE, not a PRODUCT.   You rent a service, but you own a product. 

It almost seems like Adobe shot themselves in the foot when they released Lightroom.  It does everything Camera RAW does (with a better interface), and you don't have to buy Photoshop to get the Camera RAW updates.

Until I start making "boatloads" of cash from my photography (LMAO), I think I'll stick to the Lightroom/PS Elements lineup and save BIG!

I have been using these cards and getting them on sale in the $12+/- range.

Thanks again for another price tip.  You save me a lot of money between this deal and the Google NIK bundle.

damn, just realized that i used loctite on my camera plates. well, i'll probably never need to remove them anyway, but i bet they'll still come undone if needed. oh well. actually, by the time i'm ready to offload my 5d, the plate might be worth more than the camera. funny digital...

In the future... if you use the blue Loctite, this isn't a problem.  :(

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II Information [CR2]

I like the GPS spec.  There are too many Wi-Fi alternatives available for me to "need" it built into the camera.  GPS, on the other hand, is an expensive camera add-on.  Having it built into the camera seems to be more wallet friendly.

I am guessing it [GPS] can't be shoe horned into an SD card, otherwise Eye-Fi and others would have it available.

Speaking of which, I am trying out the app GPS4CAM until my dream of a GPS in every camera comes true.

It would be interesting to see other companies numbers or a breakdown on camera types overall...  P&S, DSLR, MFT, Mirror-less... etc.

This is some interesting new on two cameras that are years apart in construction.

Didn't the 7D share the same "chip" as the 60D and 350D?  ...or am I confusing the "chip" with the "sensor"?

These specs sound nice.  Very similar to the current 7D.  I look forward to seeing the specs for the 7D MkII.
I still prefer GPS over Wi-Fi, but beggars can't be choosers.  Maybe Eye-Fi will come out with a GPS in an SD Card some day.  :)

This is about as fast as the SL1 I played with at Sam's Club the other week.

Stunning improvement.

I expect this lens to perform flawlessly, and look forward to the images you may post from it.
