ajamess: Touchscreen, eh? I don't know how the entrenched photography community will react, but seems like a pretty cool addition when they are offering phase detect AF in Live View.
I've been a Canon SLR user for many years, all the way back to when the EOS came out. I can't believe Canon has just bought out a new Video/SLR camera with the 7D's 19 point auto focus array. It sounds like most features a geared towards using live view instead of the view finder. If Canon wants to release a new Video Camera, I can't understand why they didn't put it in a vidoe camera body, is this to get round import duty or something? I currently have the 7D and 5D3. I really hope the replacement 7D2 doesn't have the stupid touch screen and live view only features. Dual Digit 5+ and the 5D3's focus system would be perfect though, with the APSC sensor.
This lens is excellent news. I bought the Camera for my girlfriend who loves the small size, this lens will be perfect for our Safari next year in Kenya.
Vitruvius: I do not own any high end camera so I am actually surprised that this has not been available till now. I remember using this on my EOS 600 film camera in 1988. I was not able to print the 9 pictures seperately after using the ME funcion :-) Still, I don't see why you wouldn't just do this in PS later with more control. I can't imagine doing this on the little screen on the back of a camera. Obviously the camera has the processing power so why not add the feature for those that want it I guess.
I wonder, if the camera was tripod mounted, and if so, why is the text on the horse blurred? Image Stabilizer shift between frames? Would this be better without IS on?
Hi, Wow Canon EOS 600! That brings back memories of the old film days. I did try the multi exposure a few times but only 2 or 3 images on top of each other. I remember winning a competition with an image of a wine glass with an attractive eye superimposed on the bowl of the glass. I had an EOS RT at the same time, I used to keep colour film in one body and Black and White in the other.Regards,Marin,
