  • Replied in Nice Samples
    Hi Steen What you say is so true. Magnification from the glass can put it in a class of its own for the best IQ, when shooting objects that don't fill the frame. Also I would think that 6.5 for a ...
  • Replied in Nice Samples
    Thanks Mario for bringing  these samples over to the Canon forum. They are more impressive then I thought they could be. The 400ISO shot looks a little soft, but I am sure working with the jpg ...
  • The Jonestown reference needs further explaining as it is confusing to me. Unless you are referring to that you believe that no camera can ever surpass the SX50. Then the Jonestown reference does ...
  • I never found raw in these tiny sensors to be worth the time vs the slight benefits. I see it differently, the SX60 IQ was not an overall degradation. It is a different sensor with different ...
  • Replied in 2000 mm
    Good catch Jadranko Ken
  • Replied in 2000 mm
    I welcome the new 2000mm Nikon with open arms. I have no idea how it will perform once in the field, but competition is a good thing. The more super zooms on the market, the harder the engineers ...
  • Replied in A few ...
    I hear you about the rollercoaster weather. We just hit -13F last week in WI. Very nice shots. Your Pro1 is doing well, and that's a good thing. Newer is nice but not always needed. Nice ...
  • C1 is just a mode that stores your preconfigured settings. An example would be: I set my C1 mode with the settings that work best for BIF shooting. I wish I had a C2 and C3 like the new 7D II. :) Ken
  • Welcome Dave You will find most here helpful and cheerful. Being a 70D owner myself, you should be happy with your new camera. It matches up well with that 18-135 STM. The 70D excels in fast ...
  • Neither will tick all the boxes on your wish list. Ken
  • Replied in Perfect Camera ?
    You do realize, that you are asking for the perfect camera. Your wish list, is what millions of photographers have been after all their life. If you find it, let us know, I for one would be interested.
  • Replied in Check this Out.
    Hi Salak If you haven't already seen this, you should find this video helpful. Keep in mind, he made this video before the 7D II came out. I am locked in to Canon, but this video certainly raises ...
  • Nice shots mailman As an owner of a 100-400 classic, mine still has plenty of miles in it's future. It is good that Canon is moving on with the 7D II and the 100-400 II, which should be all around ...

    I hear you on the age thing, my modestly priced big kits are not getting any lighter. :) They still bring me enjoyment though, for now anyway. One day at a time. :) You spent some time using a 1DX ...
  • Hi Ed Great results and quick thinking. I just read your PP path for this wonderful shot. Very interesting and informative, not to mention very successful. Be careful... this bird thing can get ...
  • Hi Sarah Thanks for the reply and the nice remarks. I had the SX40 myself, and I liked it very much. I remember approaching the SX50's radical zoom lens with extreme skepticism. As it turns out, ...
  • Thanks ANAYV. Your kind reply is much appreciated. Yes the ISO1600 does surprise me to at times, but it can be a mixed bag of results. This is one of the better shots, not all turn out this nice. ...
  • Thanks for the nice reply. Your posts are always helpful and interesting. It is perfectly logical for SX50 owners to skip the SX60 version. All things considered Canon is just asking to much money ...
  • Thanks for the kind reply Jim. I wish I had taken more shots last fall to net some better keepers. As nice as the fall colors can be here in WI, it is a depressing time, knowing what is about to ...
  • Thank you so much Sueanne. With all the beautiful pictures you have posted over the years, your opinion means a lot. I always thought of you as the scenery wizard. You can find beauty the most ...
