EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 70D features vs 60D
« on: July 22, 2013, 07:14:50 PM »
Did you try googling it? There are comparison videos and articles already although none have taken account the image quality, noise and dynamic range performance of the 70D as the tested models were pre-production.

-70D has a much superior AF system (at least on paper) with 19 all cross type AF ponts.
-The 70d shoots 7fps compared to the 5.3 fps of 60D.
- 70D has a touch screen
- 70D has wifi for photo transferring and remote stills shooting
- 70D has 98% viewfinder compared to the 96% viewfinder of the 60D
- 70D also has built in HDR mode and some creative filter things

Other than that, as you know the 70D has some cool video AF thing that really looks like it works well and has a new sensor. Sensor performance will come later as soon as reviewers get their hands on a production model.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: BMD 4K, EOS C100 or 5D3
« on: July 08, 2013, 02:36:37 PM »
Seems you need speed for shooting events. In that case I recommend the C100. Good image quality and great form factor. You can shoot log and the files are very manageable. I think you'll be happy.
If you were shooting both stills and video, the 5D 3 is the best option on the market hands down but this doesn't apply to you. The BMD 4k is fantastic but more suitable for narrative work where 4k is a better option for the larger screen and doing lots of post production where the extra latitude will come in handy.
So in conclusion go with the C100.

Edit: With the BMD you need accessories like SSDs, grips which add to the cost. The C100 is ready to go.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 70D Coming in July? [CR2]
« on: July 05, 2013, 04:11:28 AM »
Very informative group. :) My question here, other than from what I have seen the release of the 70D is in September and not this month, is whether it is all that much better that I would want to upgrade from the 60D? I was reading up at http://www.squidoo.com/canon-70d-camera-price-and-review and the only wow factor seems to be the autofocusing technology. If I am understanding correctly, the 70D is finally catching up with camcorders.

Is there anything other than this that should make me consider upgrading? Thanks in advance...

Cheers,

Nicholas


"I was reading up at." Yeah right. You only have one post here. It seems you came justs to plug in your squidoo link, which has been taken down anyway. Don't spam.

Awesome deal. Seems like a good pocket cam for the times you need to snap quickly and/or can't use both hands or a dslr is too cumbersome.

19 AF points and a D-pad. To whomever said it would need a joystick, sorry...told ya!   :P

Joystick will be in 7D II with 1D X or 5D III 61points AF system - 10fps ;D
Now, that was the worst thing to say. Everyone will wait for that camera and will not buy 70D at all  ;D  ;D  ;D

Not "everyone" has over $2000 to spend on cameras. And it most likely won't have the tilt screen which is a deal breaker.

While the specs are great and I'm loving the previews, I hate the press release. Nikon's D7100, a very comparable camera, is described as an "enthusiast camera" for "experienced shooters" so they can "capture their vision." Sounds good. Canon calls this an "aspiring enthusiast" camera. Not even an enthusiast but one who aspires to be one and is called a camera so people can "develop their skills." Really? Makes it sound like a toy for little kids. I know its not a big deal but I think they should've chosen better language.

Awesome. I just need to see if there any improvements to video besides the AF thing nobody cares about. And of course, I need to get some money!

Got the image in text translated to,

Hulgot squeeze ※ ^ \ image processing yield

° malgya
° White Balance
° Peokchyeo style
° East Lighting Optimizer
° Mayhem
° Sensitivity at 50
° hwaleong

NR
° 1 kkeumteun 6 records
° Color Space
° Full-length Under illumination hearing
° Songs calibration times
° chromatic aberration certificate.

I think I've found my new camera, since Mayhem is the one feature I've been waiting for.

" East Lighting Optimizer ": I can only assume that Canada, the United States and Europe will get the West Lighting Optimizer?

...I'm intrigued by the Peokchyeo style feature ... and a little relieved ... personally, I was getting a little tired of that Gangnam style stuff.

Finally ... songs calibration!  Yes!   I can load all my tunes into the camera!   Take that, Nikon!


I laughed a bit too much at that. Funny stuff man.

EOS Bodies / Re: Reminder: Canon EOS 70D Launch Tonight
« on: July 01, 2013, 08:20:22 PM »
This is damn expensive. Specs or close to D7100 which costs $1200. How long do you guys think it will take for the price to come down to $1100-$1300? And i think now we can safely assume the 7dII, if it is coming, will be over $2k, maybe even $2.5k.

Modify; i realize now that the price is with the lens. Body only may be around $1200-1300

EOS Bodies / Re: POLL: What will be the 70d's price tag?
« on: June 30, 2013, 12:46:39 AM »
I'm going to go out on a limb and say $999.99 US.... It's not a rebel, it's not a pro body.... think of it as a gateway drug....get people hooked on a good camera and then they buy the expensive stuff. There is a psychological barrier to $1000, it will be a hair under.
If Canon does that, everyone should be blown away. Coming out with a much better spec'd camera for $100 less than list of the 60D would be crazy.

$1299 list is my guess, with it being under $1000 in sales/selling kit lens deals by Christmas

60D also had tilt screen and there is no reason why it can't be both tilt and touch. As for the $1800 suggestion, that is ridiculous. As is the $900 suggestion. Seriously get a clue.

« on: June 28, 2013, 01:27:19 AM »
The specs look pretty good! I have been waiting for a while to upgrade my old Rebel. I want to see the improvements in sensor noise and dynamic range though. Also hoping for AFMA and dual SD slots but not holding my breath! I wish the video functionality is improved though. 1080p at 60p anyone? The Magic Lantern guys need to hack this and give us RAW 1080!!

Lenses / Re: Need advice buying a follow focus for my 60D
« on: June 10, 2013, 12:00:03 AM »
Hey man. Most people here are into stills and don't know too much about video so you should ask on other sites as well as this one.

I love shooting video and this is the one I would buy:
http://dfocussystem.com/dfocus-43

It isn't metal like the way more expensive ones but is well built and will serve you well. I currently use a jar opener like you have hahaha.
