Please register in NR & SR and let the trolling begins :)))

Otherwise the ranking should not be always considered as a good sign for good product: IMO in this ranking example Canon had a better model and features bundle segmentation as well as better communication to the customers.

EOS Bodies / Re: New Sensor Tech in EOS 7D Mark II [CR2]

I think CR guy knows more than he's reporting. C'mon Craig, tell us something more!

His name is Craig !?! ;D ;D ;D

 ;D  ;D  ;D

"... an image sensor including pixels each having a pair of photoelectric conversion units (photodiodes) capable of outputting the pair of image signals obtained by independently receiving a pair of light beams...

Btw, the word 'photodiode' is not even mentioned in the patent. So, you basically forged this quote.

The patent talks about sub-pixels, not photodiodes.
Your entire stance is based on forged/misinterpreted information.

Pspehaps the whole mistery behind "subpixel" can be easily explained: subpixel = photodiode + microlense ;)

As for 7dm2 iso range of 100-12800 I now remember DPAF.  More circuits around the photodiodes for improved DPAF would explain low isk digits :(

300nm wafer!? Jrista you are quite optmistic really.

As for 180 process - most probably YES. 1Dx after all is using it already.
QE is my dream.... in time of development of 70 andeven some 80% QE CMOS it is about time to make some advancments... But I am sceptical about it.

Tablet writing sucks!

This is one area where Sony and others who actually make some of these components have a leg up on their competition as they can sync up development & production timelines more easily.
Agree! All-in-house production is good for hiding emerging new technology. The downside however is also obvious.

I will try the SD 2 CF adapter with wi fi SD card and will post here.

But I might try also:


Any cheaper alternative suggestion is welcomed

 ;D ;D ;D ;D

I dare NOT declare it as impossible... but not quite possible otherwise it would almost cannibalize 1D x class.

Unless 1Dx Becomes 1D"y" or "z" and becomes CANON's first medium format digital SLR.

Which also is possible anytime soon.... according to my own believes. Anyways, IMO not gonna happen this year or even next.

CR so far has guessed or even predicted what would come next. I admit the Dual AF was a well hidden secret for just before the 70D premiere.  But still I don't believe that anyone would be able so well to hide for so long such a huge change as a major shift in the DSLR class market shift (leaving 7Dm2 out of the APS-C class).

So far my own CANON resources have on several occasions declared long before the premiere of 5Dm3 stated that 7D is planned by CANON to be the TOP APS-C DSLR.

Now the DUAL DiGiC processors ONLY confirm that... although the narrow native ISO of 100-12800 of the brand new 7Dm2 in the year where we already there is 400k is somewhat hard to explain.

Who knows. IMO 10 FPS and 12800 in a 2014 model is stupid or simply NOT true.

3) But the 1Dx has two slots, and that's a selling point, so I'll make one of the 5D slots slow
Actually this IS a viable reason.

In addition they need to ensure the way for 5Dmk4. It is always nice to have another novelty in next gen model.

Canon are well known for modestly implementing new techs. They are never in a hurry. They do it their own in-house speed.

for i in *.cr2; do mv jpegs/${i%.cr2}.jpg .;done

(It's been too long since I've used Windows to know offhand how to do it there, but I'm sure it could be done.)...
A GIMP user?

I save jpegs to SD and RAW to CF.  Since both are 64GB, I seldom have to erase the SD card because jpeg files are much smaller.
Is SD so inferior in comparison to CF?

Actually, since I am missing SD slot I was planing on buying this SD to CF adapter:

EOS Bodies / Re: Is Canon now two generations behind Nikon?
« on: August 29, 2014, 02:22:46 PM »
ee the next generation sensors or similiar. Although I have to admit that the Dual AF is quite a tech already.

....In my family, you can find the D810, D800 (both my husband), 5DIII (my son), 6D &7 D (myself), and A7r (my daughter).
Quite the family you know ;-)

Please explain, my English is not very good.
My husband is an Nikon fetishist, my daughter´s boyfriend works for Sony.... And MY father bought Canon. I took my first shot with an F-1, back in 1973 at an age of 9. My father gave me all his lenses and cameras, so I stayed with Canon.

Deine Familie ist etwas ungewoenlich. Das gefealt mir. :-)

You all are photographers?

Because forums like this one need people like you that have a quite close experience with different DSLR brands.

You from all users here have a broader look on different systems with different people. Especially if they are family members.

It's one thing to have a NIKON friend that you see 3-4 times a month and quite the opposite to have SONY, NIKON, CANON under the same roof.... literally.

Put another way, it took Nikon two generations to come up with a camera that approaches the 5DIII in overall utility...and I bet the 5DIII outsells the D810 just as it did the D800/E.

Same thing one step up – it took Nikon until the D4s to approach the 1D X.

That said I really hope that we will see the next generation sensors or similiar. Although I have to admit that the Dual AF is quite a tech already.

....In my family, you can find the D810, D800 (both my husband), 5DIII (my son), 6D &7 D (myself), and A7r (my daughter).

.....Nikon or Canon are very similar to a religion.  You believe it or you don't.  ....

My religion is called Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 APO-Distagon

No, no, it IS the 7D2. It's now official!


Nailed it!!!
Must check out the Canon Rumors source they quote, sounds like those guys are on the ball

if the rumour is repeated enough, it becomes confirmation of the rumour....

IMO you have no idea how much it is repeated already. That much that they can put it into the constitution already

EOS Bodies / Re: 1Dx mark II or 7D mark II

Sorry about your premature post problem...

I don't think the picture points to much at all, but it's more robust than most of the stuff that Craig and myself get sent ;-)


Actually if I had nailed it down with some bizarre new button I would have posted right away.

But since failed to find on the first game any huge-easy-to-distinct-from-half-a-soccer-field modification on any body presented there, I am afraid I had no other option except to prematurely post it just to express my disbelief what a joke of a picture NL has posted.

IMO anyone would share my opinion that for a rumor site NL is quite respectable. But this last picture that was posted is shared all over th3 intern3t. And it is quite, quite away from even logical explanation to '"you know this rain-coated camera could be the new 7D M2 that everyone KNOWS that it will be on the WC 2014.... or maybe it is not."

Even worse: CR reposts it.

EOS Bodies / 1Dx mark II or 7D mark II
« on: July 04, 2014, 04:28:25 PM »
I was going to wait until the end of the World Cup. Wanted to check the last games. Both semi- and finals.  But that stupid NL article made me post it prematurely:

If I had a prototype I would NEVER put it under a stupid WHITE raincoat next to... none

NL  had to get some more visitors and ergo more referral links.... So why not speculate on an easily to spot white spot... And check how convinient to put it just the rumored combination for the Photokina....

Am I the only one that believes that the 1Dx mark II or whatever it will be called can be already in the wild? And for the sake Never ever put it under white so eye-candy coat...

ON the other hand prototypes are known to be lacking a brand/vendor plate.

This is the very first game of the World Cup 2014. This frame is available on the HD game version.

Feel free to speculate ;-)

EOS Bodies / 7D Mark II: Could it be with a FOVEON?
« on: June 26, 2014, 07:29:48 PM »
Based on  that I really begin to wonder if under new sensor the talk is actually about FOVEON....

Guys, why did you forgot the stress and endurance tests? I am talking about the EOS pro equipment.

They must have:
- components tests (remember the 100k shutter guarantee? That means at least 120k successful on some 98% of all tested ones).
- weather & environment tests...
- Body and main circuits imperfections (remember the stupid 5Dm3 light leaks).

When are all those tests taking place?

EOS Bodies / World Cup HD stills for test bodies?
« on: June 12, 2014, 05:12:08 PM »
Hi everyone,

is there anyone recording the World Cup in HD? I am seeing tons of players' closeups. There are many Canon bodies (hard to miss with the white lenses and logo).

I bet at least one of those bodies are the next 1Dx. For 5/7Ds it would be hard to see, but who knows...  ::)

EOS Bodies / Re: Can Canon deliver a FF sensor that is class leading?
« on: June 05, 2014, 10:48:54 AM »
Your confusing amplifier with ADC. The amplifiers are per-pixel in a CMOS sensor, but the ADC is a separate unit. CCD sensors push everything off-die, including the amplifier.
Yes, indeed! You are right.

?..Testing anything but the 'entire chain' would have no real-world utility (except fueling speculation about what might or might not be possible at some unspecified future time).
I agree. Testing without pushing to the limits is no testing. By definition the CMOS includes the ADC. No matter on or off die. And usually there are more than one on the chain serial-wise. Additionally the dark current is important too.

Have you ever tried to shoot video with the 550d? AFAIK its CMOS gets heated, which makes me believe that there still must be some kind of  ADC to each pixel.
