R Johns: It seems like a fine camera. However...
I just want to ask Canon why they made it so you could wirelessly Live View and adjust Exposure from a smartphone on the 70D, but the 7D MKII you cannot...
Given the 7D MKII already has a fixed LCD, this seems like a MAJOR ball was dropped... lol
wifi on 6D and 70D connected to iPad, loosing distance and you have to reconnect it AGAIN and AGAIN, that's sucks !
If you ever use WFT (WIreless FIle Transmitter) on 1D mark IV, it never happens, just click sent and it will auto reconnect
So, wifi on 6D and 70D is sucks !
wifi features on 6D and 70D is a piece of junk !
If you ever use WFT, YOU WILL KNOW IT
I disagree for using camera tripod mount on any modifications
but we should look more into the thing first
Been using Metz 43AF,Thing is small but deadly accurateYou can't compare Metz to Canon flash piece of junk
You'll know when you use it,Only thing is, Metz draw lots of power
This 64AF will kill 600EX easily if we talk about quality of lights
this what I've dreamed about flash,but drone will not work, you will need something like anti gravity thing,flying blade is dangerous, you can not move easily between people
also mechanism to come back home to your backpack and secondary unitwill replace its position while the other one is charging automatically
I will change my flash system when this new flash system comes out
own a second camera will cost you C.O.A and new license for new O.S.
therefore, make a new connectivity between cameras will also cost you network license for each user I.D.
and other anti virus company will sell a lot more anti virus for EOS cameras
I can't imagine the power drained by laptop and heat problems
to all saying about this good and bla bla bla ...
think about simple problems, battery drain and heat transfer inside backpack,compare to it's practical side, not worthed
also USB mounting and put it in the backpack,is it stable connection for the USB ? risk from being hit or wreck ?
you need a better solution to do that, something like wireless post to communicate the link
creative? Yesusable and workable ? NOsmart innovation ? It's kinda stupid
Bruce Crossan: So when do we get cameras with a built in 4G SIM Card? Or a camera with no rear screen - just a device to attach the camera to a smartphone where the screen would normally go. . . of any size or operating system, with an App that replaces all the functions of a rear screen?
the brand that you mentioned,they only made a TOY, not a camera
do the Times people use it on their work ?
tongki: I like the idea of incoming 1D mark IV replacement,another APS-H for this new EF 16-35mm f/4Lwith more reliable wifi, something like WFT built in because wifi on 6D and 70D is a crap and totally useless (you know if you use WFT earlier)touchscreen, dual SD card and very fast live view and video AF
Thanks for the offer, Richard,I missed my 1D mark IV and had to admit 70D performs better in some wayyour price for $3,200 think too high,I sold mine around $2,000 several months ago
I take yours for $1,000 cause it is imported and some customs

Miguel Rodríguez: When is canon going back to the game? Gents I am a frustrated canon user... What happen with this guys just announcing boring orControversial or overlapping products? Many of my colleagues a switching to Nikon and I think I will eventually do it as well.
Canon can innovate with something like wireless LCD detachable with control
thanks me for the idea when it happen
tongki: I keep 17-40mm for extra 5mm reachand don't need stupid IS
if you can not handheld your camera in wide angle,then hire a photographer that can do it
rrcad, do u know how fast a moment that you can't even think about moving your feet to get that 5 mm more reach
especially if you use 24-70mm on FF,16 x2 = 32mm ... +3mm = 35mm24 x2 = 48mm ... + 22mm = 70mm
17 x2 = 34mm ... + 6mm = 40mm
see the difference ?
I would prefer using other way than IS to solve problems,because IS is something that you can not control of
I keep 17-40mm for extra 5mm reachand don't need stupid IS
Michael B 66: 1) This was very informative. I thought about building a power supply with a lead battery and a DC-DC converter but - despite it will supply a 600D for 30 hours it is heavy.Have not known that these battery packs come now with a 9V (and 12V) supply plug.
2) external power supply for the 40D is rated @ 8.4 volts. I would try to reduce the voltage to 8.3 volts with a DC-DC converter - I am not shure that the dummy battery has some regulator. Applying 12V will perhaps destroy the camera, a DC-DC regulator is a good "protective circuit".
LOL, lead acid?heavy and needs to drain totally before recharging
thats is not solution, that's new problems,especially the DC to DC converter
people nowadays using lithium ion or LiFe,lightweight, huge capacity, fast drain for hungry powered devicesproblem is, aviation regulation limits to some capacity
iAPX: I found it funny this little body with all this equipment around. Seems I am trolling when laughing about a little mirrorless body needing to be put on a tripod just to take a good picture without motion blurr, especially with one the rare good lens sony offers for it!
Now for video, it's laughable too, with a 12MP resolution (I still use my D300s but who will buy a mirrorless body with 12MP in 2014 to do photography?!?), and none of the advantages you will find on BlackMagic gears.
Still photography? nopeMovie shooting? nopeLauging? ah yeeessss
been using sony piece of junk A900,can not go higher than iso 1000, slow AF, stupid AWB,clumsy flash mount
going back to sony with nice Zeiss lenses again ?
Wolfgang Fieger: Once more for better understanding: we photographers are not interested in movie making! If we would be interested in movie making we would be movie makers, not photographers. Please recognize the art of photography as a totally different form of art as movie making is. These two forms of art have less in common than painting and sculptury. The only connecting part is the fact, that both arts involve lenses as tools of their craftmanship.
that would be easier using a monopod and tilt lcd screen,rather than setup mini jib
Photomonkey: A good update to a fine camera. Not everything that everyone wanted but good nonetheless.
This may be Nikon's last top end DSLR. We may see a move to mirrorless (donning flame suit) for the next generation.Buy your piece of history today.
people who gets D4 or 1DX actually looking for responsiveness,and that means everything,I don't think mirrorless can perform at this side
if only D4S comes out with dual SD card slot,I will forget 1DX and all Canon system and flash that I owned
LukeDuciel: Honestly, I do not really feel D3S and D4 is that better than D3.
D3 was a really good camera and Nikon has not delivered anything significant since then.
(D800 is rather a sensor miracle than the body itself. and for that, Sony is probably the one who owns the credit).
I don't know a camera were made to be thrown or fall and when survived judge how good a camera not from the camera performance
Hossein Zaka: Hello Pentax(or Ricoh ) Co.
Why you don’t improve low light capability or color depth or Dynamic range in this 24Mpix sensor!? I though you known that I don’t need 24Mpix or more and 16or12Mpix enough for me. Because I don’t want to print on a billboard or other big walls, and I don’t have giant disk and space to archive that.I just want to rock with my APS-C sensor and have better low light capability or Dynamic range than K5II/K5IIs or D7100/D7000
I think this time DPR dont give you more than a Silver Award! Regars
you can always use Small or Medium size JPEG to do that
I am doing it on the past with Sony A900 that made 25MB each JPEG !
