  • I'm guessing you try to keep your ISO at 800 or less is because of noise?  I posted in another thread about acceptable noise vs ISO for the 7D2 in another forum and I'm surprised on your results ...
  • Replied in 7Dii vs 80d
    I'm in the same boat wrt camera selection.  First, you use multi AF points for landscapes?  I started out with manual focus so I move around a single focus point wrt f stop until I get the DOF I ...
  • Replied in Humming birds
    How on earth did you freeze the wing beat at 1/125 s?  Did you pick the frame in the video where the wing is at the bottom of the stroke?
  • Replied in Humming birds
    Very nice shots everyone.  You put my hummers to shame.
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    I might have misspoke again.  I do know Canon's website no longer offers the 7D2 non-wifi model anymore.  Last year, Adorama, an authorized Canon dealer, had both;  the Non-wifi was approx. $1000 ...
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    Thanks, it gives me something to think about.
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    Canon put out a lot of various cameras since I got my T2i and I couldn't keep up with the incremental changes. Not to mention the cost of jumping on the band wagon and upgrading every model ...
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    Let clarify again, I misspoke about the 12K ISO and no noise.  I grabbed a value out of the air.  What I do remember is how insanely high he could go wrt ISO with the 5DIV before noticing any noise. ...
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    Not a problem, I'm still here.  I have been quietly watching and hopefully learning a little bit.  I welcome all responses concerning the subject.  My original post may have been a little too ...
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    Thanks, those shots really were what I was looking for. They show how much finer grain they have than the T2i as someone said earlier. I could see how they would clean up (as someone said earlier) ...
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    Thanks, I have been in the single point rut for a while.  Trying to shoot geese and hawks right now.  I've been horribly off center.  The background is either sky or distant tree line, so I'll try ...
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    Off topic question:  do you single point focus or all of the focus points when tracking birds?  Part of my problem when trying single point, is I'm rarely centered. I'm out in the Fall/Winter too ...
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    Thanks, I didn't see that.  I thought you were comparing it to the 80D.
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    Thanks.  Would you be able to superimpose T2i data onto the graph?
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    Nice shot.  Looks pretty clean at ISO 1600
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    My memory is probably not accurate on the ISO I stated, but the low light shots he took at increasingly higher ISOs was impressive.  I couldn't see any noise on the LCD screen even when cropped. My ...
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    I guess I didn't explain accurately enough.  Yes I meant the non-wifi models are discontinued as you said.  Just won't use wifi and I'd rather put that extra $400 toward a new lens.
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    A friend of mine has a 5Div and the ISO capabilities are insane.  He's taken shots well above 12k and no noise. I too have taken shots at deer in very low light at ISO 1600 and they are very ...
  • Replied in 7Dii Noise
    I looked to try and find a photo as an example, but I must have thrown the out.  All were in low light and some were attempts at BIF.  Had to go up to ISO1600 and the noise was real bad.  Some of ...
  • Created discussion thread 7Dii Noise
    I've gotten tired of waiting for the 7Diii so I'm considering upgrading to a 7Dii.  Currently I've a generation's old T2i coupled with a 400mm f5.6L.  It doesn't do too bad in light, but if it's ...
