  • How do you know 18mp is not enough for a big brand? Do you shoot for them as a professional? I was actually chatting to someone who does just that a couple of months back. He had recently shot two ...
  • Not suggesting they wouldn’t use new gear, just that they are wary of it hence having familiar and trusted kit with them. This is especially true with some brands who tend to change ergonomics, ...
  • You cannot read too much into that. There will be a limited number of R3s available, and they will all be still  at risk of bugs etc. There is also a learning curve with new bodies, especially ...
  • There is a big difference in throughput of a camera, and output file size. Yes, shooting at he rates you mention will send data through the camera at a similar rate. However, it is not all about ...
  • Again, it is about using the right tool for the job. Fast action court side you ideally want a fast and reliable camera, one reliable in all ways and also able to take abuse. That is what the 1D ...
  • Totally disagree. The D5, 1DX3 etc have been the main stay of many pro sports togs, same for the older models in their respective ranges. From magazine covers and centre spreads, to massive ...
  • Totally agree on the Canon macro gear, it really is superb. As for the D500, paired with that lovely 500PF lens it is a wonderful tool. AF wise I did find times when the D500 would not be as good ...
  • No, you are better off getting closer. Lugging a bigger lens around is rarely the answer in this kind of scenario. It is especially true in the warmer months where the shot is ruined by ...
  • Check safety shift settings. That is probably enabled.
  • I would guess he has worn it out rather than it be limiting. Many 7D2 users are in the same boat, myself included. Hopefully mine will hang on a bit longer and that Canon will have a suitable crop ...
  • Replied in Canon R7
    From the various threads, as well as people I talk to in the field, quite a few. We would all like it to be cheaper, but people really are clamouring for a camera like this.
  • Replied in Canon R7
    I would say it would be more than just the sensor size differential. If the R7 was 32mp for example, then compared to the R5 that pixel density is quite significant. The extra pixels require ales ...
  • Replied in Canon R7
    It is not just about the price of the body. If Canon releases an R7 with similar specs bar 8K to the R5, then I am happy to pay close to R5 money. Why? Well the cost is not just in the body, but ...
  • In some cases it is snobbery. Some just don’t believe anything less than FF is capable enough for them. In the early days of digital there was a noticeable difference in quality, but these days it ...

    To be honest, the whole system is not for me.
  • Replied in Canon R7
    The M system lacks in too many ways. Sadly the lens system has been weak with only 8 lenses. It still sells well apparently, but only in the US and Japan. That is not unusual, many products that ...
  • Replied in Canon R7
    You are completely missing the point, the price differential is in the overall system, not just the body.  Take an R5 with a 600mm for instance, you will also have to add the cost of a tripod as ...
  • Replied in Canon R7
    The 7D2 was never small. It is not about weight of the body, but of the system. It is about getting pixels on subject and with the 7D2 we can walk around with a 100-400 instead of say a 600mm. ...
  • Replied in Canon R7
    That’ll be me for two then.
  • Ouch. Only thing I can think of to try is pulling the battery overnight. If that fails there are tools that will do a factory reset via usb
