Congrats on the new camera Phil, I think it will be tough to outdo your excellent results with the 7D.

Have a great time shooting Duxford, I'm jealous. Enjoyed your catching the two Lancaster's together, don't know if we will ever see two flying together again.

Congratulations!

It is going to be so hard for me the next couple of months until Santa brings mine, watching everyone else get theirs.

Many thanks for your kind words

Yes seeing two Lanc in the air may be a once in a lifetime event.

Now about these rumours of a Mosquito coming over next year.......

Thanks, I will do my best to give of my best for the camera

Pixel Peepers, can go and take a run and a jump

Hoping to get out either Thursday or Friday, weather depending, so fingers crossed one day will be nice

I was hoping you could take a few underexposed pictures of your bookshelf and then push them 3-4 stops in processing, and then post a 100% crop of the darkened corner of the shelf. Just so that I can confirm I don't like the camera for taking pictures of my kids playing in the backyard :)...sorry...couldn't resist

Congrats on the new purchase. Good luck with Duxford. Look forward to your comments and feedback.

Lets see here... A wildlife preserve, and an upcoming air show, with a new 7D "MARK II".

Are you sure you didn't die and go to heaven?

I wish it was me.

Re: Woo Hoo, new toy time 7D2 arrived :)))

Hi Phil,

If you get a chance to play around with the live view and/or video shooting I'm keenly interested in:

1 shot to shot times and LCD blackout

2. continuous focus in live view

3. how convenient is it to select a focus point in live view

(I'd ask the usual stuff too but I'm pretty sure I know what I'm getting in those respects)

I eagerly await my 7DII in Toronto.

Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.

Congrats on the new camera. With 205 days 17 hours and some 30 odd minutes you should have plenty of time to have your settings down pat. Can't wait to see new Duxford photos as yours always rock. In the mean time, I hope you will share some bird pics. Have fun!

Was there an LPE-6N battery in the box?

Congratulations on being the first to post here with a new 7D2 and on getting it.  I'm sure you'll continue to take marvelous photographs.  I look forward to hearing your impressions.
