Canon General / Re: POLL: Satisfaction Level With Canon products.
« on: July 19, 2013, 09:50:13 AM »
I am very pleased and pretty close to being a fanboy but am actively resisting it.  Since my wallet limits what I can get I have lust in my heart for some lenses but accept my equipment for the limits my wallet puts on my purchases.  I think their QC is good by my experience I do know of companies that are much worse.

Once you change the options under the Process tab, the contextual menu choice will use those options.

Ps. Don't get too used to using the Process tab.  If you do, you'll have to unlearn that behavior at some point in the near future, assuming you keep current on upgrades.  Just sayin'.

Are you an alpha tester?  Nice info to know BTW.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 70D a New Benchmark in ISO Performance?

I'm waiting for the Nattering Nabobs of Negativism Band of Banding-Hunting Brothers to mention that it has obvious pattern banding at +10stops DEC & +1000 fill-light, as confirmed by Professor Professorson, PhD E.E., when pixel-voyeured at 800%...

Lovely assessment.

Well, that ought to DRum up some DRead from the DRoll DRones who DRool over DR, and DRag many a forum thread down the DReary path of DRivel, DRaining into puddles of DRoss.

;D 8)

Very well put.

My only question here is not about the 70D itself, but about the (possible) 7Dii.
Not much room left between the 70D and the 6D/5Diii for the 7Dii ... unless the 7Dii would be something like a cropped 5Diii (around the same price as well though)

Excellent points!

The only way I can see a 7DII in Canon's future is if it is targeted more at pros than consumers.
This means a sensor optimized for high ISO (rather than more megapixels), really fast fame rate (10 fps?), better AF system (more than 19 AF points), etc..

Such a camera will surely be expensive, as it won't be targeted as consumers anymore.
A $2000 price tag won't surprise me one bit.

I'm thinking the 7DII might be an APS-C 1DX.

Definitely high ISO, lower MP.

Awesome shot, hope you can recover the images.

I usually say thank you and have a little chat if they are so inclined.  Very rare on the chat though.

I recall a similar thread a few years back. Went nowhere.

If a camera is in development or testing, they aren't going to slap a strap on it that broadcasts the model number.

It's a slow day at Rumor Central. Can't blame CR Guy for throwing a little chum into the waters to see if he can stir up some page views. But, no reason to swallow this one. Move along. Nothing to see here.

On the other hand – anybody recognize the other camera in his hand.

Thanks Officer Clancy, I will move along. ;D

Not a bad price

Site Information / Re: banning people for nothing at canon rumors
« on: June 13, 2013, 04:00:19 PM »
I work as a mod on another site and we have an option to soft delete posts.  It is up to the site owner to decide how much of a forum program is used. 

There are normally steps to be taken before a member is suspended/banned, again the owner decides how that works and how it is implemented.  It is kept private for obvious reasons I hope.

To the OP I suggest treading lightly on this subject.

EOS Bodies / Re: A Big Megapixel Discussion

I'm satisfied with 22mp. Large enough to print big, Small enough to save some space.

Unfortunately the market place is in the driver's seat here and this camera is most likely geared for the landscape crowd.

You will have a nice 22MP camera or maybe slightly more when the 5DIV comes out.

Practiced BIF again this afternoon. From advice I've received here, my capture/keeper rate is getter better. 7D, 70-200L f/2.8ii @ 125mm, 1/1250sec, f/5.6, handheld.
Wow!  Like night and day from just a few weeks back!  Great job Serendipity!  These images stand out!  Now to find this bird a nice lake background!  Keep up the great work and congratulations! :)

Bump your shutter speed to 1/2000 or 1/2500 and you should get even more keepers.

Thanks. I'll give it a try when the light is good. I don't like going over ISO 800 on my 7D.

I have used 1600 and even 3200 on mine.  Very usable shots.  Just make sure you ETTR.
