dual digic 4s vs single digic 5
« on: May 01, 2013, 12:13:01 AM »
is the digic 5 a better performer than dual digic 4s? Considering selling my 7D while it still has value and picking up a 70D, when it comes out of course. I'm interested in how the two compare specifically in processing power for different features in magic lantern.

I'm sure I wont see a difference when running stock firmware, but will i see a difference when running ML?

Doesn't matter as much since the 70d isn't out, we can't be sure of what it will or won't do.  There will be a space for the 70d and there will be a 7d2 based on rumors.  Depending on what you use it for, it may work out for you - but personally I sold my 7D and my EF-S lens to feed my 5d mk3 fund.

Good call - I just sold my 7D - after getting my 5D MkIII, and having a 5D MkII as well, the 7D saw almost no action.  And yes, I primarily shoot wildlife, so even the crop wasn't enough.  The files are just so much better from the FF sensors, and the 5D MkIII AF and image quality is amazing!

I just borrowed a 1DX and will sell my 1D M4 (1.3 crop) to get this great camera.  There is always something better out there.

BRING IT ON

I'm not doing video yet, but from a photographer's perspective, what processing power does - it processes faster. That's why I don't think you'll notice the difference in this aspect. Though I believe other features (or lack of them) is something you should look at  ;)
