Very nice picture, Woodwideweb.
A great short 1080p film.  That shows exactly nothing about the quality of the C700 camera itself.

What about the post gave you the idea that it was supposed to show anything whatsoever about the quality of the C700, the C300 II, or the GoPro cameras used to shoot the production?  Or did you just feel like making a snarky comment?

I got the idea this post might have been about the quality of this new Canon camera, as we are on a Canon equipment website, and the title read "Spectacular Canon Cinema EOS C700 Production".  What we saw was spectacular content, but not a spectacular camera performance, as it could have been produced with a dozen other cameras and looked the same.

So you read the title as, "Spectacular Canon Cinema EOS C700 used in Production for SWISS Int. Airlines."  Got it.

I figured it was better to read the title as written, along with the content:

There are a few things in this world I wish I had the skills to accomplish, and this sort of cinematography is definitely one of them. After watching the production 10 or so times, I figured we’d share it.

The LAUSCHSICHT team sent us their latest project shot on Canon’s latest Cinema EOS camera, the C700. Along with the C700, a Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark II (and a few GoPro’s) were used to make this spectacular air show production  for SWISS Int. Airlines.

I find this lens to be very versatile, especially useful if you only have the opportunity to take the one lens (such as a day out with the family).  This was taken in the Butterfly house at the National Botanical Garden of Wales, Canon 6D, Handheld.
...my d800s still deliver so well that the minuscule improvements are not worth the bother.  Same with the crop bodies with the exception of the new D500 beast.  But if you have a 7100 or 7200... few need what the 500 adds.  Even the d5x00 bodies are extremely capable if you don't need weather-sealing or really high frame rates.

There seems to be a constant stream of Canon upgraders in good volumes, hoping to get better gear, improve their skills, maybe discover they want even better gear, keep buying the same brand...

So, in essence, you're saying that Canon offers improvements that are sufficiently impactful to tempt users to upgrade, while Nikon offers only minor improvements that aren't that very attractive to users. 

Smart Canon.

Neuro, that's a great example of quoting out of context by using selective quoting to try to depict the opposite of the original statement.
Did you get practice in this skill by working for politicians or big-pharma?.. ;)

No, I didn't depict the opposite at all.  I'm a scientist, and I'm used to distilling away rhetoric and opinion to reveal the underlying data.  I just reduced your statements to the essentials.  But since I know some people lack the necessary metacognitive ability to separate themselves from their biases, I'll rephrase your statements in accordance with your biases:

Nikon makes superawesomefantastic dSLRs that are so amazingly incredibly stellar, that are packed with so many wonderfully astounding features, that have such superlatively stunning performance, and that use such futuristically advanced cutting edge technology that when they release an updated model, they're only able to make very small improvements.  So, once you make the brilliantly intelligent decision to buy a Nikon dSLR, you never need to buy another one. Therefore, Nikon users don't upgrade and Nikon sells fewer dSLRs.

Canon makes poor, sub-par, really abysmally terrible dSLRs that are so stinkily crappy they can barely take a decent picture.  Once you make the idiotically foolish decision to buy one, you are locked into a viscous cycle and forced to frequently buy new iterations of Canon dSLRs in the vain hope that doing so will give you a little bit better performance and make your pictures ever so slightly less sucky.  Therefore, Canon users upgrade all the time and Canon sells more dSLRs.

Smart Canon.

This is the second unofficial pricedrop on a Canon kit in the last week and just like the previous EOS 6D discount, it probably won’t last long. This time it’s the Canon EOS 80D w/18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM for $1168, this currently retails for $1499 at other authorized dealers.

This is sold through Amazon, not a third party retailer. Act fast if you’ve been on the fence.

Were this the same air planes that hit the cable cam last Friday at the S:t Moritz alpine world ski championships (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ws0vxsu608Q)?

It was still the Patrouille Suisse, but not on the Northrop F-5 used in the promotional video, they were flying another type of plane (Pilatus PC-7), used for training.

finally a topic I can chime in: the swiss airforce has three display teams:
patrouille suisse on f-5
pc-7 team
super puma display

the guys that hit one of the cable was flying for the pc-7 team. so while they all know each other well, the teams are seperate and use different aircrafts. the patrouille suisse trains with f-5, it would make no sense to train with the pc-7.

happy to answer any questions that might arise.

Not so nice now, but wait a few more months, the scenery will be much better.  Taste good, too!
Nice one of a photo, colors and background.

Very nice to get context on where your photo originate from, Dien.  As sometimes happens my "notify" hasn't been notifying and so I was out of the loop for a while.  Here is a raspberry waiting to be unlocked from the rigor mortise of winter.
