EOS Bodies / Re: Are you planning to purchase a 7D2
« on: August 27, 2014, 01:21:32 PM »

I assume you are including me in the "FF snobs" comment? If so why, what do you know about my needs, current gear and the 7D MkII that I don't?

Oh I own a 1D too.

No, but you did.  But you made me read your post.  You say you have no interest in a "performance" crop body but you still own a 1D?  Incidentally, the 7D and the 1Ds Mk III were aimed at different segments.  While the 7D is better for some, the 1Ds III is better for others.  I've seen 7Ds on the sports sidelines and no 1Ds IIIs.   It's the reverse in the studio.  I have FF, APS-H, and APS-C bodies that I use in different situations.  The 1Dx would replace all 3  but at twice the cost. I don't know your needs but you don't know everyone else's either.

Wow, FF snobs abound......everyone knows the 1D Marks I-IV are crop bodies, right?

Actually if it has 10fps, usable ISO to 6400, 45AF points, dual CF and SD cards, and dual pixel AF, it will be better than the 1D Mark IV.  Now, it depends on price compared to the 1D Mark IV.  If the new body is close to those specs, I'm going to replace my 5D Mark II, 1D Mark III, and 70D with the new body, a 1D Mark IV, and a 6D.  Or sell every one of them and add $2000 to buy a 1Dx.

I had two 7D's, 5 40D's, along with other APS-C cameras.  Even the entry level FF bodies have better IQ and are cheaper, In fact, I picked up a old 5D classic for $350 last weekend, and its better as well.

Better than what?

I will buy two 1D Mark IVs or a 1Dx if their prices drop.  The used 1D Mark IV prices seem to have dropped $1000 in the last 6 months in anticipation of the new body's release.

Sounds like this camera should be priced around $2499 not $3499

Just had an MP-E 65mm Macro 1x-5x lens for a week through CPS so I added it and my adapter to my EOS-M.  Handheld and just for fun.....I should have figured out a way to turn off the darn AF since it kept using the AF assist for an MF lens.  The shutter delay was painful so I shot the rest of the time with my 5D2

Do test shots with a friend or two.  Pick a time when the lighting is to your advantage.  Practice staging your shot with the equipment you have.

Shoot them in front of the arch and frame the arch around their heads as much as you can.  Use a small aperture to bring the arch and tracks into view.  Illuminate the couple since they will be backlit.  I'd use a 50 or 35 lens with a FF camera, 24 or 35 with a crop body.

EOS Bodies / 1D Mark IV Prices Dropping?
« on: July 01, 2014, 07:46:24 PM »
It looks like prices are starting to dip and sales of 1D Mark IVs are slowing in anticipation of a new body.  It looks like Canon is blowing out 7D refurbs too.

If Canon bring back the APS-H, It must be in the niche market and meet the following requirement.
1. Smaller than the 6D for portability
2. Same pixel density(or even smaller) than the 1Dx for low light/high ISO performance.
3. Very fast FPS for sports photographer due to lower MP.
4. At least half of the price of 1Dx
Question is at this day of age, how many photographer can live with a 10 to 12 mp camera as a general purpose camera?

Why does it have to be smaller than the 6D when you're going to be hanging big whites off it?
I think a 7D size 24+MP APS-H body would be attractive since the 1D4 is 16MP and $3500 complements the current line alongside the 5D3

Look how many 1D4s are used by sports pros.  Many would prefer to not change their shooting styles by going from a APS-H to FF or APS-C.  Sports shooters are the most visible of Canon's IRL ads.  Studio shots are usually closed to casual observers but everyone sees the sports shooters on the sidelines.

Can we have a discussion without the childish name calling? Austin, I would love to add you to my list of Richard Craniums but I don't have one.  You are entitled to your opinion as are all of us here.

24-70 with the 6D.  Bring your tripod and shoot nightscapes and the blue hour after your kids have gone to be.  Hawaii gives you both ocean sunsets and sunrises!
