Software & Accessories / Re: Small Bag Recommendation?

If you're looking for a shoulder bag that is not too expensive and more importantly, doesn't look like a camera bag, I recommend this.

The Rally 4 and 6 are also different sizes available.

I personally use this ThinkTank bag.

If you want something really sexy but that's way expensive, at least for me, check out the Ona's Brixton Bag.

My body is ready.

I think the new A7s will be very handy for lowlight shooting. Can't wait until the Mark ii/A8s since it'll probably have a good AF system unlike the A7s.

Take that new Tamron superzoom that was announced and a fast prime for lowlight.

Yeah what are you on about headphones? Haven't heard anything about that.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Speculation [CR1]

Here's my guess:
9.3 fps (2 more than 70D, 3 less than 1DX)
28MP with equal or slight bump in high iso performance
Better weather sealing
4k video @24 fps, 120fps 1080 video slo-mo
$2100 starting price, falling to $1950 within 6 months.
dual digic 5 and digic 4 processor
cf and sd card slot, though sd card limits higher functionality
dual pixel AF version of the 1D4
Headphone jack
wifi and gps

Sounds more like a wishlist than an actual guess of what Canon might do but I hope you're right. My wish list is pretty similar.

Not bad but that is 60 jpegs. What about RAW? I am assuming the 7D will have a much better buffer.
Also, the AF points cover less than half the frame, which is stupid and useless.

Other specs are impressive but will never buy that.

I think a touch screen should be included. It may not be effective for those not wanting to take their camera away from the viewfinder but for video shooters who are using live view it is probably a nice tool.

Also a touch screen is incredibly useful for playing back images and video. Just like a smartphone, one can just swipe between photos and videos and pinch to zoom in on a location instead of using that cumbersome magnifying glass button.

Here is my guess/wishlist

price: $2000 body only
10fps with about a 40-50 raw frame buffer
5d3 AF system
full weather sealing
dual pixel AF system from 70D
new sensor different from 70D (one stop better noise performance and one stop better DR)
possibly 4k video and 1080p/60p? One can hope.

I really do think this will get a newer sensor than the 70D (which was just a modified version of the old sensor) because the 7D is very important for Canon and the product cycle is very long so a new sensor ensures the camera will remain competitive 3-4 years from now. The 80D or whatever its called will get the 7D's sensor and then the Rebels and others will get them after.

Anyone agree?

This is funny. A lot of people would get a sh*t load of cr*p & only a few would rather focus on quality. Quality over quantity any day!


5D3 x2
35 mm prime
85 mm prime

That's about it and pretty much 10k spent and a perfect set acquired for general shooting.

Translation: My opinion is right. Your opinion is wrong!

Canon is doomed.

5D iii - $3000
Tamron 24-70 f2.8 - $1300
Tamron 70-200 vc - $1500
Tamron 150-600 - $1100
Sigma 35 1.4 - $900
Tokina 16-28 f2.8 - $700
Tamron 90mm macro f2.8 - $750
Use the rest for ND filters, CF cards and batteries.

ITT: Canon fanboys threatened by Sigma and prematurely attacking Sigma's lenses. How pathetic.

Yes, but you can use pretty much any lens ever made on that camera with adapters so your point is invalid neuroanatomist.

And you can't judge the image quality without seeing it so I suggest you wait until you start Sony bashing like all the fanboys on this site.
