EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D Classic Good Enough for Pros?

Now that the 7DII is out, the 7D will receive a silent firmware update, bricking it :)

Do you have a display calibration tool? Doing photo editing without one is pretty much pointless.

Why limit yourself with sRGB?

I would suspect that almost any current production monitor with an IPS panel will suit your needs when used with a calibrator.

I happen to like 16"10 over 16:9 for the extra pixels.

As far as 4k goes, there seems to be many gotchas with current tech. Seems like most (if not all) need 2 connections for the data over ~30hz. The Dell is the most promising, but also promises to be quite buggy.

The LG cinema display is getting good reviews and HP recently announced several 4k/5k displays. Both are probably over your budget.

I have a Dell u3014 and the price on those has come down. Yes, mine acts up once in a while, but not often. I have come close to getting a second.

Given your budget, I'd just get something in a size you want with an IPS panel and LED backlighting, and use the rest for a display calibrator. It will be a huge improvement over what you have now.

That "thunk" sound was the price dropping on the current model....

At ~$500 for camera and EVF, strong maybe.

At ~$800, no chance.

2015 or 2016?


The Canon 600EX-RT flashes come up quite often as refurbs at anywhere from ~$329 to near MSRP.

All you need is an alert set up at CPW.

For those that live in a part of the world with access to Canon refurb products, the price for OEM seems to be pretty competitive once you factor in the trigger cost.

Almost there, you forgot to mention the build in 1,4x converter :)

The built-in 1.4x was assumed, but you are right, I should have specified it...

Might as well add some IS too.

Given the info provided, you are lacking something in the 600mm range and something around 14mm.

Does that help?


I used to work with a Rolls Royce Aero engine designer, he said before CAD they wouldn't pre draw the pipework but give the roughed up engine to the senior fitters with instructions as to what went where, those fitters then worked out the best way to route all the pipework and their initial pipes were then taken off and drawn up and manufactured.

I always found that interesting.

I believe it, probably the fastest way to get to a solution with the least amount of waste and rework with the available technology.

What's even more amazing is that those engines were drawn by hand and calculations done with a slide rule...

120mm autofocus macro tilt-shift f/2 :)

When the 1DX came out, weren't the specs kind of poopooed... but then in use the opinion changed?

Same thing may happen here, and Canon has at least a month or two to tweak it.

I'm in no rush or need to buy one, but I'm sure it will be interesting.

I suspect this release can be likened to a beta test for whatever may follow the 1DsIII.

Maybe, if it is spectacular, and even then, still just maybe.

Honestly, I'd rather see it in a 1D form factor, but the 1D price point would be an issue. At that level, I'd have to look at the new Pentax.

A new Canon lens is more likely.

I'm still intrigued about the upcoming announcements though.

Time will tell.
