I know this is nuts, and I apologize in advance, but I love my 7d II. It murders all other APS-C 'sports' cameras, regardless of age,,, the tracking on the Sony, Nikon and Samsung competition don't even come close. High FPS and Megapixels don't mean a damn if 30% are out-of-focus.

osv: bug fixes for old cameras are front page content on dpr?

i guess that canon fixing problems must be, like, earth-shattering news ;-)

You need a hobby mate.

On article Sony a9 shooting experience (1185 comments in total)
In reply to:

Arastoo Vaziri: "the a9 is likely to be shot quite often at very high shutter speeds, and therefore, higher ISO values"
That's only the case if you shoot sports under very dim light. I am a Formula 1 fan - those are the fastest cars on the planet - and acquainted with photos by David Sutton, Schlegelmilch and the likes. The exposure values Sutton uses would leave most DPR readers scratching their heads in disbelief: shutter speed doesn't exceed 1/2000, ISO is never higher than ISO 200 and aperture values are kept in the f/5.6 surroundings. I remind you these are cars that can corner at speeds in excess of 150 km/h and reach top speeds nearing 340 km/h.
And those are professionals who have more years of experience than many of us have of existence on Earth. Yet we, strict amateurs, need 6-digit ISO values, 1/32000 shutter speeds and 20 fps. Oh well.

F1 cars aren't even remotely the fastest cars on the planet.

scokill: Looks terrible. This isn't going to attract sports shooters.

Did you bang your head on something? It looks fine for ISO 12,800

shigzeo: Really wish these third party 'native' lenses would incorporate native electronics to allow automatic stop down rather than forcing users to turn a 2017 camera into a 1960s SLR.

Don;t worry noob,, shoot enough,, you'll know instinctively,

panchorancho: Now this is what mirrorless is all about! Better than Sony's A9 which is a half-baked attempt at making a sports camera! Go Fuji!

The comically slow RAW buffer flush speed makes the A9 all but unusable to most sports shooters,,, not even a quarter baked.

On article Sony a9: Why being better might not be enough (765 comments in total)
In reply to:

John C Tharp: Can we get more clarification on limitations to adapting with the LA-EA3, specifically with the 300/2.8 and 500/4 lenses that are not replicated in E-mount?

The article states that subject tracking (Lock-on AF) is not available- what kind of tracking is available, if any, and will this be of any use to sports shooters wanting to use these lenses?

I get that Sony is pushing the speed aspect of the A9 to compare with pro cameras, but of what use is that to sport shooters using their longer lenses if the available functionality is so limited?

The chronically slow flushing of the buffer (during which the camera is unusable) is the Achilles heel,, a deal breaker for most sports photographers.

In reply to:

rialcnis: To whoever ridiculed me discussing the a9 a couple weeks ago, saying it didn't exist.....a big LOL.

Famous old koan, "If you see the horns of a bull, above a fence, there is a bull behind the fence."

A9 looks like a fine camera, but it is no 1-DX rival. It doesn't have the super teles' and the RAW buffer flush speed on the A9 is useless, bordering on comical.

In reply to:

henrikbengtsson: Voila! The app-concept for cameras is here. In the future, the default software offered will be basic with optional downloadable functionality ($$) for a custom setup.

It's a hardware upgrade, numbnuts. READ the article.

Ahh, thanks.

On article Light's L16 camera is in final stages of testing (301 comments in total)
In reply to:

PhotoCGI: They've got to be kidding.
Exciting concept and all but my questions as a potential consumer:
-Why pay $1700 for a product from a company without prior experience in the camera market?
-What are the chances something can go wrong with this device vs a tried and tested DSLR or MLC? --About 16 to 1 chances I'd say-
-What about image quality? Will these tiny plastic lenses really rival images produced with high quality optics and leading apsc or fullframe sensors?
-Why they don't dare to show a full size L16 gallery for us to see? If the product is so amazing as claimed, wouldn't it be the first thing to show?
-What if I want to use an ultra wide angle, a fisheye or extreme telezoom? Should I go and spend more money on another system camera because this device won't accept the lenses I want or need?
There will people interested, sure. Early adopters with money to burn. But at $1700 a piece, they are not going to sell well. Heck, not even at half that price.

If people like you were the leading innovators in our species, we'd all still be in a cave banging rocks together.

In reply to:

Chev Chelios: Is this lens really what EF-S system owners having been crying out for?

Canon had a 9 year head start on Fuji with their APS-C lens system. Fuji X now has 5 prime lenses which are 35mm or wider that have apertures of f2 or wider. Fuji also has an ultra wide 14mm f2.8.

Canon on the other hand STILL has no fast wide angle EF-S primes. If you want faster than f2.8 in a prime you need to pay much more to get the larger and bulkier L equivalent.

Stop whining

Lensmate: Good fun, but nothing new, as Banksy had been doing this sort of thing since the 90's.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banksy

OK,, I'll bite,,,, how is this even remotely like Banksy's use of stencils?,, which, incidentally, have been used since the stone age. Your boy Banksy might be an ace with the social commentary,, but he's not exactly breaking new ground with technique,, graffiti artists have been using stencils for 50+ years.
