I'm literally pulled over other side of the road making this post. I haven't had time to check this info out. Have at her.
Isn't USB internet great? The iPad would have actually been handy right now. :)
If canon can do a 7D 18MP at 12800, then i hope they now choose to do a 15MP 60d at 25600.
@stuart: you are not far from a good guess…;-)time will tell…with the advantage, that the 25k pictures maybe get as usable as the 12k of the 7D due to less MP crammed on a crop sensor…I was bad in physics…therefore I cannot give an empirical proof to that. my two cents dream only
You know all these people buying “the latest and greatest” cameras just set it on P-rofessional mode anyway.
Skilled photographers shoot manual, spot meter, use FEL, and select white balance based on conditions.
All the fancy auto algorithms prevent them from getting what they want and introduce unpredictability to the final product.
I heard (wish) it’s the 6D. A 7D with an improved 5D (12MP) sensor. Come on Canon give me what I want.
Hell freezes over first I’m affraid.
Just like all the frustrated wedding photographers here, I was not asked by Canon when they were creating the 7D. I wonder who they have asked?
I’d love to watch Koogle swallow his own words right now.
And i’m so tattled.
