On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (1872 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rawmeister: Whoopdy do. A 70D on steroids.
I don't see how image quality will be better than that from a 70D.
They could not come up with a 24 MP sensor for this?
If your not a sports photographer, why not just keep your 70D or 7D and buy better glass instead. Geez - it's a no brainer.

They market the 18-135 with this sensor? What is the world coming too exactly?

Whoa man! Panic in needle park, already? lol

It's a fine camera, lots of folks will get years of good use from it. Did you not notice any of the upgrades?

peevee1: "the new 10-30mm lens is equipped with a unique power drive zoom dial that allows for simple and smooth zoom capability, ideal for capturing sharp and steady HD video."

What is so unique about it, Olympus 12-50 did the same 2 years ago, and Panasonic 14-42PZ was very similar even a few months before. Since then Sony E 16-50 and Olympus 14-42EZ work the same way.

But that supertele opens new grounds and finally makes Nikon 1 system worthwhile for birders etc.

Good for birders if it really does deliver. Would love to give it a test drive! The better resolution at higher ISO's of the small sensors makes it all look good, non?

What's not to like? Looks like a big, good step forward and will be buying in and send my (fabulous) 30D to backup.

Seriously!

In reply to:

harrisoncac: A good review on a bad lens.

Obviously, Olympus is trying to say this is a body cap, not the other way around.

An expensive body cap.

Nonsense. It's a tool for the photographer who knows how to use it. And after reviewing the image gallery I'd say it's a darn good choice for many situations.

This is a very good image and reminds me that the eye and brain behind the camera are the most important 'tools' when composing photographs. Obviously the potential of this nifty, inexpensive lens is huge IMHO! Good on Olympus for thinking beyond what's supposed to be 'normal' when designing lenses.

I like it. Not an Instagrammer myself, I may yet give it a shot when I get the new device.

On Just Posted: Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 review article (187 comments in total)

I currently have an LX-2 and think it is absolutely fabulous at ISO 200 or 100; preferably the latter. For what I shoot (mostly landscapes and nature scenes) the LX-7 looks to be my future.

Looks like a beauty!

My only wish is that the touch screen would swivel and move as on the 650D.

Looks good to me. Like others have noted: it would be fantastic to have an f2 as the maximum aperture.

Pricey but I'd sure like to give one a test drive!

On Canon EOS 5D Mark III preview (901 comments in total)

Looks like a beauty to me. Pixel shmixel! Who cares if Nikon has 32mp camera vs. the 22mp in the MkIII? It just doesn't matter. It's the eye-brain connection that will usually determine if you're getting good stuff from the camera and lens you are using.

On Canon ventures back in the water with the rugged D20 article (48 comments in total)
In reply to:

Photographist: All my friends who are photographers an myself
are considering that Canon has made this D20
with a design that is non-ergonomic and... ridiculous.

Please see my new subject on the Forum,
called "Canon Powershot D20 - Ridiculous Design",
where I placed two pictures
showing the result of our quick "redesign".

What do you think of that ?

Best regards.

Have you held it in you hand?

Didn't think so.

On Canon ventures back in the water with the rugged D20 article (48 comments in total)

I would love to give this camera a test drive. So what if it's only an f3.9? You can have your ISO at 400 and produce amazingly quality images all day long: the Digic processor is that good. As well, the ability to take HD qualitiy videos entices me. I have a slightly dated 30D and it rocks. but I do need a compact for watery situations.

I had a good old Oympus clamshell film camera that bit the green wiener when we got soaked while kayaking off Vancouver Island a few yeats back. But having a handy and compact camera to take for the rough stuff is very attractive to me.
