Lol, so this cam is still better than 90% of cams made around the world (including all), it is good cam for certain purposes for the price even now, and someone must say he/she will puke of the output of that device. This is not pro by any means. It is really poor. Wonder if she calls other people like "worthless piece of ..." with her language. I´d not let her her hold ANY, let alone my camera :-)
And those guarding "pros" - you know how "pro drivers" drive their white company cars, don´t you?! :-D
neo_nights: Compared to Nikon's interview, I quite liked this one.Better than I expected.
First of all he seems to have a nice sense of humor (and I do not mean it ironically). Also when he says "maybe..." about mirrorless instead of "we are/will be considering that" is very meaningful coming from a Japanese executive.
But a bit full of himself stating that Canon's APS-C and FF sensors are the best out there.
Sensor is good. The rest of the circuity is F*kd :-)So he didn´t lie. I also like his "maybe". Sounds like "eventually" from Ancients form SG1 :-).
I can´t blame him as he cannot know many things. He´s not the one to answer some of questions, but damm, he can equivocate as an advocate :-D
DPR please in next interview, ask for some roadmap!
Zerg2905: Second beer goes to the one that can post a link with a valid software (RAW converter) able to open this 7D Mk II CR2 file: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/canon-7d-mark-ii/E7D2hSLI06400NR2D.CR2.HTM
I tried even more and my conclusion is: ISO 1600 and up, this cam rocks. Really the best one, Good job! For low ISOs, it´s the same "bad" as 70D VS D7100 or old FF cams. I´d like to see performance increase in the whole range. If I can get this sensor in EOS M3 for $499, I migt have a hit. Otherwise it´s not worth sensor vise. Of course "sports people" will appreciate AF capabilities much more.
sheckwel: I disagree is most comments, I think this camera has vast improvements over the original 7D, I didn't test and put my hands ON on the 7d II but am pretty sure it's speed, responsiveness , handling are going to be terrific, it;s aim to be an APS C size Pro camera (How some folks say why it's not full frame) It's never going to be full frame, it's aim to be for sports, actions, wildlife shooters who need more reach because of it's 1.6 crop sensor, it's AF is going to be outstanding, others folks are complaining about 10 FPS is low (you will not going to get $6799 camera like the 1D X specs on a $1799 camera) Thanks they didn't put smartphone features on the 7d like WIFI/touch, crappy swivel, theses features means less weather sealing and since the 7d II is going to be used for most actions/wildlife shooters, they are going to need a tough metal camera!If you really need 4K or you want to act like a Pro videographer go get the 1d C with only $15.000 or new 2014 smartphones :-)
And now the big question: Does Canon deliver any other type of body in this class and price? ummmm. Think hard! um.... NO :-D
IrfanView. Free and very small.
Wonder what does it take to make photos of DPR test scene. C´mon DPR, our heads will explode within 48 hours! Schnell! :-)
kimsch: A few high iso shots for those who cannot wait ;-)
It ain´t no FF, but it looks really good indeed.
Could this also be Canon way of their new sensors?
AlanG: Steve Ballmer edition.
Lol you got me :-D
crashpc: This is really sad and pathetic. I don´t even wish any problems to Nikon as competition. It is good competition, I am still looking for what they do as potential customer, but this is obviously not good way.
SergioSpain: 1) No, I don´t need to do updates to work safely 2) This happens because the system is open. It has nothing to do with functionality itself. Different situation, different aspect. When you open the box and plug it to power, it simply works like charm. Usually even when you bild your own from not really 100% compatible and tested parts. Still works great.
Am I not clear? Are you really asking? Yes! It might be small miracle, but one pays for it and expects it works. Other companies can do that, while it seems that Nikon´s daily bread is quirky stuff as others mentioned. Millions of computers and tablets are working out of box for fraction of money, so, what´s the problem?

brownie314: wow - exciting times for Canon. Another DOA product. Good work.
Yes I see. But it really isn´t duty of manufacturer to make you aware. Driving licences for life ran out of stock. I think that those cams only can be bad choice. Not really steal or rip off if you know what you´re doing. I still believe you about get what you pay for. MRSP might be too high, but street prices two months later will be okay. It´s cheep stuff and some people never have enaugh of it. You still get much greater controls, zoom and maybe features (okay, my two year old mobile phone has 10FPS burst mode), so I don´t understand this hate. It´s what it is. You have the responsibility to make good choice.
How about Sony Cyber..... :-)
How surprising is that when there is almost the same sensor mounted? Didn´t they buy it for zoom capabilities? Why then?
NDT0001: Man, whats canon doing releasing this stuff? Why don't they focus their efforts on producing products people want. In case no ones noticed they are getting creamed in the stills field by Fujifilm and Olympus , and creamed in the DSLR video field by Panasonic GH4, and Sigma now showing them how its done in high quality primes. Im very close to dumping my whole 5Dmk3 kit and 6 lenses for the above mentioned brands.
The same as EOS M, isn´t it? :-) They go from bottom. I hope we´ll see many more announcements coming from Canon.
abortabort: I don't get it. The SX400 is 'only' 30x with a tiny sensor. When you can get a much smaller 'pocketable' camera with more or less the same small sensor and zoom range, why would people buy this? I mean for the market that buys a super zoom like this, holiday snappers, would they really want a big chunker like this? Lens isn't faster, nor longer... Seems 'cheap' is the only thing potentially going for it, but then it is so cut price in so many other areas as well.
As this is MRSP, those cams will be cheaper. That´s the point. Also not everybody is happy with tiny body.
They do focus on products people want. They are market leaders so nobody wants their products? Eh, broken logic to say... They are so creamed that, oh well, I´d repeat myself. If they got really creamed in some aspect (GH4) it is not for the same price of other product capabilities and qualities. One niche feature is not going to move pretty anybody. That way they do good.
