Ha that was easy - it wasn't shot with a 7D Mk.II  :D
Nothing is wrong with it. It is the photog who has a twisted mind and force people to turn their head in order to watch it. It took half a second for my dog to realize it, while I was still thinking about CA and vignetting.  :-[

I'm surprised to see so many suggesting a battery grip. I've always thought they looked too bulky, plus most of my work is in landscape mode, but I'll have to try one sometime!

I'll check out the other products that have been suggested.

Thanks everyone,

A grip on a 1 series is rock solid, but on a 7D, I'd pass.  You do not hold a camera with heavy lens by the body / grip combination, you put a hand under the lens to support it.
 
I've had a lot of grips, and took them all off. 
 
Unless you have a specific need such as portrait orientation or extended battery life where you can't easily change a battery, I'd pass.

You know, I think Mt Spokane has a point.  I'm sitting here looking at no less than 4 grips in a pile waiting to be sold.  I simply never use them anymore.  No offense but I almost feel like they are newbie-bait.  I purchased and used them for a while when I first got back into photography and purchased them with each new body.  The last two never left the box.

So I would definitely wait on the grip and perhaps also evaluate how you hold your cameras with heavy lenses.

Also, skip the silicone skins and such.  They just get in the way and if you leave them on, dirt/sand/dust, etc gets in between the camera and the skin and will wear/scratch the body worse than if you had nothing on it at all.  Total waste of money!

LCD protection?  Sure, why not?  It's not expensive and doesn't hurt functionality, etc.

I've had several Lenscoats (they're neoprene I think, not silicone) and found them to be very useful for keeping white lenses clean, including on African safari. I've never noticed any scratching from dust/dirt being caught underneath but I think an occasional inspection and removal would prevent any lasting damage.

So you have a new toy.
So you can post images in all the 7D MkII threads.

I doubt the 1.6 crop factor will actually amount to any more actual image resolution over a cropped 1DX file in real world shooting anyway, so in truth, unless you need another camera, the answer to your question must be no.

got mine today but not via B&H had too got too south NJ Edison to Beach Camera Warehouse and got mine dindt want pay 2100 for kit with 135 stm lens but hey i got the camera just dont wnat the lens i want the 55-250 stm lens

im still getting used too NO TOUCH SCREEN and no SCN option on the mode dial it goin hard shooting a fashion shows and etc but i will learn

Excuse me. Aren't you the guy ranting against all of us who pre-ordered the 7DII as being fake photographers and fad followers? And now you're upset because the 7DII doesn't have SCN option. This is too funny.

Not me

You were the guy whining about, "fake photogs and tourist and casuals" placing preorders which would delay "real shooters" from getting a 7DII.  I wouldn't think a 'real shooter' would need to rely on Canon to choose the appropriate settings for a given scene so the user just selects the head icon for portraits, the little running guy icon for action, the mountain icon for landscapes, etc.  Rather, a 'real shooter' should be able to choose the desired settings based on knowledge and skill. 

My advice, don't worry about the lack of SCN modes, or unfamiliar settings like M or Av – just set it to the green square mode and you should be fine.  Better yet, set it to P mode...that stands for Professional, just like Missy the MWAC says.  ::)

Wrong guy

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Would you buy a 7d mk ii if you own a 1DX
« Last post by kyle86 on Today at 01:10:28 AM »
Hi :)

Apart from the 1.6 crop factor is there any other reason to buy a Canon 7d mk ii if you already had a 1DX ?

Thanks :)

I preordered the 7D2 and the grip for it several weeks ago on B&H. Their site says the grip is not expected until mid November. I'm worrying that the grip may delay the shipment of my camera body. Does anyone know their policy on that? I emailed them to ask, but just curious if anyone else knows or has had experience with something like this? Will they ship the camera separate, or wait till the grip comes?

I am really excited, this camera is going to kick arse

If you absolutely need to protect your camera from scratches, use the best quality gaffer's tape you can find, and replace it periodically.
Of course, only if you absolutely need to.
