I think the Olympics will be good indicator. If sideline has mode D5 bodies than 1DX2, I believe D5 AF is better.

Of course there's plenty other reasons to decide which body to use, but for sports AF is important af.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS Rebel SL2 Coming for CP+ [CR1]
« Last post by Nininini on Today at 05:07:41 PM »
I agree, I just want a good small DSLR with OVF.

An SL2+

Around $600

Everything from the SL1, but with
-pentaprism
-minimum shutter speed
-better AF
-weather sealing (come on, those silly rubber rings can't cost much)
-60FPS HD video
-3x lossless zoom for video like the 760D and 70D
-better handling
-small screen on top like the 760D


basically, I want the 70D in SL1 size lol
You won't get a pentaprism in a $600 dollar camera.
And while the silly rubber rings don't cost much, the grooves they fit in do add costs.

Uh, both are wrong. The Pentax k50 has both weather sealing and a pentaprism, and you can find it for $250.

Both these things cost nothing to implement, I have tons of old cameras with pentaprism.

It's just Canon trying to protect their own higher-end camera, of which I'm frankly getting a bit tired.

Crop users are still stuck at 30 FPS HD video, meanwhile sony is releasing crop cameras with 4k video and 120FPS HD video with large EVF viewfinders.

I sure am holding off buying Canon lenses to see where this is going, I'm not going to buy any more Canon lenses until I know what Canon will do in the future. They are quickly falling behind in terms of video and specs.

The SL1 and 1200D hasn't been updated in years, and the 760D is extremely costly for what it is, very outdated specs, 30FPS video, pentamirror, no minimum shutter, no weather sealing, no custom white balance.

Like I said, the SL2 better feature 60FPS HD video or this will be my last canon, I'm not going to keep buying gear with super outdated specs.

Having a bit of trouble with one of my 100-400mm IIs. It gives much sharper images using silent shutter on the 7DII, I found out this morning. This nuthatch I took this afternoon using the silent shutter mode.
I find the camera does not vibrate as much when you use the silent shutter mode, I use it as my default. I'm guessing here, but I think it is because it moves the mirror slower....

Is it possible that there was a tiny bit of moisture on the rubber and it froze to the metal, ripping when you dismounted the lens?

Nice picture, Alan.



Less vibration with the silent shutter?

Zeidora, that's excellent relative to my somewhat basic flash use, and much appreciated.  Mind you I can't quite picture myself in the scenario that was painted in this thread.

If I understand this correctly because the flash itself uses a type of averaging based on the three points you've mentioned, the choice of compensation necessarily must be based strictly on ones mental perception of the objects that are around, how distant, large, and what shade they are.  Now if more than one flash is used things would change considerably, I suspect?  How about bounce?

rishi_sanyal, it may not "feel" good but this little tempest in a tea pot probably will make you a slightly better reviewer when it's all said and done.  Emotions cloud logic for all of us! ;)

The main thing is that you can look in the mirror privately and say I do the best I can.  Really that's all that matters.  Keep up the good work and improve where feasible. :)

I agree with this. Thanks for your perspective. :)
