Canon General / Re: Photographer Petitions Canon for Left Handed Camera
« on: January 28, 2015, 01:30:54 PM »
Being left handed doesn't mean you can't learn.  By golf and bat swing are both right handed, because that's the way I was taught.  My camera shooting is "righty" as well, but everything else, I do left handed.  I am probably one of the few lefties that does not write "up-side-down".  I still can't figure that one out... 

I learned, I adapted, and I overcame.

Somehow, I get the feeling this product was created just to see if it could be done.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 6D Mark II to Move Upmarket? [CR1]

Wasn't there just an article posted on how Canon was disappointed with sales of the 6D?   So...  to combat this, they RAISE the price?  Is this a marketing "reverse psychology" play?

Looks like Matt Granger answered the metering question.  Similar to the 1DX...  hubba-hubba!

Something I have not heard much about is the focusing system/choices carried over from the 7D mkI version.  Has it remained the same?  It was rather sophisticated already, but I'm curious if Canon adapted/integrated anything from the 1D or 5D series.

This is a great price as well.

I thought Canon was getting out of the "point and shoot" camera business?  Is this camera more a "dive and shoot" type?

I find it hard to believe that everyone there is a professional.  No hobbyist shooters, schmucks with iPhones, Canon SX50's?  Who was the guy that took the shot at the last Olympics of all the photographers pointed toward the sports action?  We need a shot from "THAT GUY"!

Just Say'in..

With all the long lens cameras covering the World Cup, I find it hard to believe there isn't even an incidental shot of the 7D Mk.II - that is if it's even there?

The mention that this will be positioned as a Professional APS-C camera is what I hoped for.  I think the Pentax K-3 fits this niche as well.  If the price is attainable, I look forward to replacing my aged XS.

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!
