I'll try again tonight with pictures of Jupiter..... I'll use the 60D with a telescope for the lens and the GoPro again... but to get closer with the GoPro I'll stand on a ladder...... that should work :)

Of course it'll work.  If it helps, you can use Eric Carle's Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me as an instruction manual.

A great photo can be taken with any camera, but it does not follow that every great photo can be taken with any camera.

Great, I'll certainly quote that when I meet the "a really good photog doesn't need expensive equipment" mob again, some are out to get me because sometimes even I with my midrange 60d+70-300L seem to look like a rich snob :-) ... well, unless you look at my clothes after crawling through the woods for half a day.

It's still not working.... these are previous photos of the moon.... one with a 60D, the other with an iPad. What should I be doing to get the iPad photo as good as the 60D photo. Since camera does not matter, I must be doing something wrong, but I can't figure it out.... I tried to get closer to the moon, but I can only reach so high...

Obviously, the second photo is a close up of the bright spots in the first photo. The iPad is too close.

I love the second one, pure abstract art. Outstanding!

A great shot is a great shot. Weither its from an a1400 or a 1Dx. It's more convienent to get the shot with a 1Dx but If you got it with a a1400, both would be great shots. That's the principle and has nothing to do with equipment.

A great photo is a great photo. It's irrelevant what equipment was used.

Basic failure of logic.  A great photo can be taken with any camera, but it does not follow that every great photo can be taken with any camera.

No one is contesting the former, the latter assumption is where you're incorrect.

This is a rare opportunity to prove that Neuro is wrong....

Let us examine the red squirrel, which will run away if you get too close. Since equipment has nothing to do with how great your shot is, I chose a GoPro and a 60D with a 400mm lens. My goal is to take a picture of a red squirrel for my community newspaper... Both pictures were taken a few minutes ago from the same location.

Picture 1 is the GoPro, Picture 2 is the crop of the squirrel on the GoPro, Picture 3 is the 60D, Picture 4 is the crop  of the 60D. I think we can all agree that there is no difference in quality between the GoPro squirrel crop and the 60D squirrel crop, and I think we can all agree that even if I had a 1DX and a 600F4 lens that the image would still be comparable to the GoPro. Sorry Neuro, there is no noticeable difference between images from the two cameras...

Haha, love that second image man! Superior quality in every respect, no doubt about it!  ;D

One of the things that I really wish to see is the integration of tablets/smartphones and the camera over a wifi link. Use the tablet as a remote shutter release... as an intervalometer... focusing aid.... lots of possibilities.

Set yourself up for bird pictures by placing the camera near a feeder or perch, go far enough away as to not scare birds away, and live-view/click....

It is *here* and the 7d2 will certainly sell, but this forum is hardly any representation of Canon's market. Imho if the 70d gets roughly the 7d1 specs there are not that many people left who really need something "better", of course except higher iso capability...

... so it might come down to safari & wildlife shooters, other are probably better served with a 70d or 6d.

Can't you do that with the 6D?
There's not much range on the little canon remote, plus you have to be in front of the camera. It's nice to stay hidden, 30 or 40 feet away, and be able to see what the lens sees.... You should be able to do anything over wireless that you can do tethered, plus using the tablet to do intervals, trigger on sound, changes in exposure, movement......
