Canon General / High ISO speed NR? (7D Mark II)
« Last post by Werz on November 28, 2014, 06:28:48 PM »
Hello!

I was wondering if anyone could explain how the "High ISO speed NR" works and what does it do? (I have a 7D Mark II). Does it apply NR only to some ISO?

Should I set this value to off? (I'm using "normal/standard" right now)

Does this affect JPG only or RAW as well?

Thank you!

Go to Canon Price Watch and set an alert for it.

You can set notifications directly through Canon as well, but for me they never seem to come in before the Canon Price Watch notifications.

Congratulations on receiving your new lens, I hope everything is ok with it! Mine is still backordered.

As far as couriers go... no excuse is good enough. Charge more for your services, hire better employees, operate more efficiently, or do something. My compassion for the delivery personnel does not supersede my expectation of the service I'm paying the company to do. With that being said, I don't think they have to do anything more than drop it at the door unless you have signature confirmation... never the less, I understand your frustration!

Excellent reference! I just moved to Stavanger this week and can't wait to start checking out the sights in this region.

Okay, I realize he's not "lazy" in that he delivers a ton of weight everyday (for pretty good money from what I've heard), but still, he's not "lazy" in the absolute form of "welfare queen lazy". But, as a musician and amateur photographer, I have seen a HELL of a lot of equipment damaged over the years from these guys carelessly and thoughtlessly throws this stuff around. The packages look like they dragged them behind the truck, not in them. They sure as heck wouldn't throw their own stuff around like that. And the sticker on the door when the door was open, that happens all the time here, too. And our UPS and Post Office places are minimum 40 minute round trip if there's no line at the counter when you get there. Even if I send my staff member to get it it's $20/hr plus lost productivity. So, yeah, I'd pay more for fragile delivery. Better packaging would help, too, although this package had an air pillow on 5 of the 6 sides. But, since the weight was on the side where the air pillow wasn't odds are higher it fell on the unprotected side. I'm just kinda pissed. If I keep this lens, I always will wonder if it's loosened or damaged. And it would have taken 15 seconds to open the damn door and deliver it inside.

When we're talking about a fragile $900 piece of glass? You bet your ass I'd pay more for red carpet delivery. And, BTW, the mail delivery box is 3 FEET FROM THE OPEN FRONT DOOR and I sat here inside on a beautiful fall day for 7 hours trying to prevent this very occurance.

It's not like I don't understand your pain, at least the failed delivery happens over here all the time. When I sit at home, waiting for the packet the guy just puts a sticker to the front door, claiming I wasn't there. And then I have to travel through the whole town to claim the package. After the weekend...

Doesn't whoever-you-ordered-from offer other delivery options? At least the online shops I have in mind usually have some kind of premium delivery, and more expensive might not only mean faster, but indeed better.

The point I am trying to make is that "lazy" isn't the right adjective to use for a packet delivery job. I imagine lots of other words can be though of for the company though. If the guy hasn't the time to go 3 feet further, he seems to be on a tight schedule indeed.

The card is formatted starting with the last image on the card. Check your files. The last image you shot with the 7D was probably 8340!
p.193 of the full manual: Set camera to Manual Reset mode. Shoot one image. Format card in camera. Then reset to Continuous Mode. You will be off by the number of shots you shot before you reset.

I do this dance every time I send my camera in for repairs or cleaning. They grab a card with an unknown file number and test fire my camera. When it returns, it looks like someone had shot 2,000 images.

BTW: Do the math. 8,341 images is holding down the shutter at 10 FPS for almost 14 minutes. Possible but not likely. If it really bothers you, download and run the latest shutter count. I think it now supports the 7D MkII.

Enjoy your new camera!

Sama's link is correct apart the "ftp" in the beginning, try this:
