EOS Bodies / Re: *UPDATE* A Bit of EOS 70D Info [CR1-CR2]
« on: April 16, 2013, 03:12:54 PM »

Nikon only has second class citizens when it comes to their customer service ;)
Better specs don't equal respect, they are trying to compete.

About the only thing stoping many people from switching is Nikons abysmal service recornd in the USA. At one time Nikon had a good reputation ... but NOT anymore.

BTW Nikon has had better focusing and metering for a long time, I've never understood Canon's lack of competitivness in this area. I guess focusing and metering aren't at the head of the list for Canon users ;)

As for the rest of your specs...well, they're meaningless.

This is a typical fanboy response.

When a Canon has better specs, it wins hands down.
But if a Nikon has better specs, then this is irrelevant in the 'real world'.

FYI, this is not how things work with buyers.
Buyers look at the price and the specs and then ponder if the camera offers good value.

The D7100 offers exceptional value.
If Canon doesn't match that, then they'd better offer the 70D for cheap.

Why do you hate Canon so much :) :) :)

Nice to see someone else who lives in the real world :) :) :)

You're the one obsessing over the number of points in the autofocus system.

All I've been writing about is the actual performance of the autofocus system.

No, I've been obsessing about the better autofocus of lower-end Nikons vs the lack-luster performance of lower-end Canon models.

Have a nice day :) :) :)

So why not pay your money (or not) and take your choice, instead of constantly proclaiming Nikon's superiority and more consumer friendly business ethic to the rest of us?


My problem is with Canon's dis-respect of the vast majority of their customers. If it wasn't for xxxD an xxD sales there would be no R&D money to support xD development.

Why would I pay the same price as a Nikon D7100, for a camera with fewer features ??? Will the 70D have 51 point autofocus ??? Will the 70D shutter be tested 150,000 cycles ??? Will the 70D have a 2,016 pixel RGB 3D Matrix Metering System ??? Will the 70D have dual SDXC slots ???

Shutter lifecycle is irrelevant ...

Dual memory card slots are irrelevant  ...

As for the rest of your specs...well, they're meaningless. What matters is the actual real-world autofocus and metering performance, ...


So you think that 61 point autofocus is important on a 1Dx, but irrelavant on a 70D ??? The nice thing about Nikon is that they treat all their customers with respect. Nikon has no second class citizens when it come to autofocus and metering.

In a marketing driven world, having lesser specifications won't win the sales war.

...  It sucks having too much Canon glass to affordably switch camps. #firstworldproblems

Why do you have too much Canon glass ??? I'm always amazed at all the people who own lenses that they don't use very often.

Sell them!!. People always say that lenses are a good investment, so you may even make a little money :)

Isn't there somewhere on the 'net that isn't pimping the over-hyped Black Magic :(

Oh Wow, another gimmick for the talantless, aka a Magic Bullet.

Using this device will require two well trained people. Does the low-budget film-maker have the money to hire these operators ??? Or the time for yourself and a friend to become proficient ???

EOS Bodies / Re: Future of APS-C Given 6D Pricing
« on: March 27, 2013, 10:11:05 AM »
For most people Full Frame makes no sense. But a lot of Very Serious Photo Enthusiasts think they need Full Frame. And CaNiSony marketing wants you to buy FF.

Do you shoot landscape and print really, really HUGE ??? Then you need something like a Nikon D800E. At 13x19 even a pro-pixl-peeper will have a hard time telling what camera was used (M4/3, APS-C or FF).

But people have the right to buy what they want and not what they need.

Lenses / Re: Prime vs zoom
« on: March 27, 2013, 09:44:16 AM »
Ninety-five % of the time I'm shooting with an 85mm f/1.8. The other five % with a 90mm f/2.8 TS-E. No zoomz needed.

No regrets ever. My iPod Touch 4G has a .7Mp camera and shoots 720P video. Both the photos and the video are good enough to post to the web :) It takes dy-no-mite cat videos ;)

For me to even look at a 70D, it needs a Sony Quality sensor. I'd prefer an EVF over an optical viewfinder. It also needs Panasonic GH3 quality WiFi. Nikon focusing and Matrix Metering would also be great ;)  (that ain't never gonna happen).

I've never been a lens collector, if i don't use a lens at least once a week, I don't own it. Makes more sense to me to rent lenses I seldom use. So, for me, changing camera brands is no BFD :) Canon, I'm waiting to be impressed, but I doubt that I will :(

I love paranoia!! Everything is a disaster just waiting to happen. The internet is great for passing along dis-information and fueling paranoia ... gota love the 'net.

!. Photo Journalists use their smart-phones, not public WiFi, to do their up-loading. Not a problem for a pro. If your not a pro I'm sure your milage does vary :)

2. My GoPro Hero3 has a name (to control multiple cameras) and is password protected. WOW, such Hi-Tech in a $400.00 camera.
