Animal Kingdom / Re: Owls and Swans in flight - 7D mk II

Manual Mode, but autofocus, right?  Which focus settings did you use, please?

I can't see how anyone could possibly criticise these terrific pictures, but let's wait and see what the pixel-peepers say.

EOS Bodies / Re: A Real EOS M Replacement Coming Soon? [CR1]
« on: November 17, 2014, 09:27:48 AM »
My preference is for an APS-C version of the Panasonic GX7, same form factor (slightly larger probably) but obviously with Canon's best APS-C parts (AF, sensor, etc.).  In other words an optimised-for-street, quick reflexes, rangefinder.  Would need to have Panny's faults eliminated (lack of mic input, lukewarm video performance, etc.).

Would prefer GPS and articulated screen, but tilting screen would be OK.  A decent wi-fi/app a necessity.  Pop-up flash would be nice, but not a deal-breaker.  Hot-shoe on top of a pop-up, anyone?  M lenses are OK as a starting point.

Whatever the naysayers may say about Canon products, they do a pretty good job at these promotional videos.

I've lost track - what does the upgraded C300 now have that the new C100 doesn't?  Or vice versa?

Can't remember if it was Patrick Lichfield or not, but someone used to blow a referee's whistle just before firing the shutter.  You probably wouldn't get away with it too often with the same group.

"You can pick an A7r up for as little as $1700 used, A7s' used for as little as $2000."

Ever wondered why these owners are selling?

Is that cello full-frame or crop-sensor?

Why don't you copy your post to ThinkTank for their recommendations?

I have a Benbo.............. and a Benro!

Both are fit for purpose, and I would buy again.  Ditto for my Manfrottos!

Does this mean a Mark II might be imminent?  Why did nobody tell us?

I'll wait for the MkIII.

I've run "carrying solutions" through my BS Reverse Demodulator, and it's come up with "bags".

Hope this helps.

I have various Manfrottos, even an original Benbo, but I'm glad I came across the Chinese Benro brand at the NEC a couple of years ago.  I now use one of their carbon fibre travel tripods almost exclusively.  It's light, sturdy enough, folds down small, and the price is right.  I'll bet they have a model that would meet your height requirements.

Will this feature be built-in to new C300's, or is it retrofit only?

Happy with my Benro head.  Although I haven't tried (or even seen) a Wimberley.
