Gorgeous shot, you got the settings on it? I cannot see them.

Also did you fire a flash at it? Kind of looks like it.

Thank you for the kind words :)

Flash did not fire - here are the rest of the details -
Manual Mode
f/5.6
1/60
ISO 200

And just looked through your flickr - you have some great stuff in there!

Nicely done, I would not normally push the 7d beyond iso1600, so this is a good shot.

Nice clean shot for ISO 3200.

Thanks, I was very pleased with how the shots turned out today. Was worried about pushing out to 3200, but was not allowed to use the flash so I had to take the risk.

Ian.

Can someone please share the link (or send via PM) that has the recommended settings that are ideal? I'm looking for the best deal on a 7D and will probably purchase one by the end of the week. Thanks for sharing. The above photo is awesome!

There is no such thing as an "ideal" way to have your function settings adjusted, nor any real "recommended" settings that are "ideal" - it there were, there would be no purpose in having all the flexibility the camera offers.

Someone posted a link to one person's way of having his camera set up in response to your question, but it was apparently for his type of shooting (I think for "birding") - But no two people shoot exactly alike - having a style means you should know what settings will be most useful for you. Not yet having developed a style of your own means you should just experiment with as many settings as you can - it can't be something you will be able to determine either based on the recommendations of one other person or even on your own without giving it some time. Expecting to get the camera in the mail and getting every setting to be "ideal" for you is unrealistic - (especially if you have to ask).

The post someone put a link to for example...the "My Menu" for that person makes NO SENSE AT ALL to me - why would anyone need to have "enable live view" on that menu when there is a dedicated switch that turns it on and off and has to be used anyway? Same with having "Format" on that screen - I format my CF cards after I upload the contents every time - but it's certainly NOT something I would ever be in such a rush to do that I'd need it on the "my menu" home menu - nor do I think anyone would (same with "enable live view - it's just redundant"). I have (for example) "mirror lockup" and "AEB" because they are features I use and buried in the menus - and when I use them I am likely to want fast access to them (even "mirror lockup" is something that I really don't need that fast access to - it's not something I am likely to find myself needing suddenly or unexpectedly....it's just there because I had extra room and had everything else I do need fast access to already on that menu. I could change it to flash compensation, but I can access that using the top LCD so that too would be kind of redundant. - Besides other than using a single flash for outdoor fill light I generally use three or more Speedlites, so I HAVE to set up the ratios and groups using the full flash menu - using FEC alone isn't enough (and as I said, can be done easily and quickly using the top LCD control).

I could go on, but every function setting gives you choices that are right or wrong (or less right or less wrong) for each person or each style or each subject or day or mood, etc.

Find what works for you - if that's too much work or too complicated to work your way through, then really it would make more sense for you to either leave everything at the factory default settings (some of which make no sense - but might not matter to you at first) - or maybe you'd be better off using a camera with less flexibility. It's all these settings that make the camera attractive to some people and to others are referred to as a "steep learning curve"...it's NOT a "steep learning curve" - not the advanced focus system, not any part of it - for those who understand the advantages and disadvantages of a particular focus setting, it makes perfect sense and is very intuitive. To those who need to develop their skills, it may take patience and (apparently) some frustration.

It isn't the right camera for everyone. There is a reason that Canon makes other cameras with less flexibility in settings - they even know that there are a lot of people who want to buy higher end cameras, but are not really going to use the features so they include automatic settings - the 7D has three auto settings - "basic green box" - "creative green box" and the "P" setting - which I believe override all of the special functions....and are ideal for 99% of camera owners.

The 7D does NOT have the "pre programmed" modes that the Rebels have (and I believe ..not completely sure...that the 60D also has)...settings where you can place the camera in "sports mode" or "portrait mode", or "night mode" "beach mode", "sunset".... (etc.).

Anyone who buys a camera like the 7D SHOULD know how to control their settings, but many (maybe most) don't - so Canon compromises and gives the three auto modes ("P" mode giving some degree of control)...

It does have three custom positions where you can set the camera to use three different "recipes" of custom functions. Really that should be enough for anyone - but if there were a single "ideal" recipe, there would be no need for the three custom positions - let alone all the fn menu choices.

Use the camera and be patient - read the owner's manual - get a book like Magic Lantern or any of a number of books specific to the 7D and LEARN what the custom functions do and LEARN why there are choices.

If you want an "ideal" way to set up your camera and you expect to get a difinitive answer, you will be very disappointed - There are way too many possible combinations and it's not unlikely that you can ask 100 different people and get 100 different answers. I don't know how many possible combinations of settings there are, but I'd bet that it's far more than 100...

It's a matter of preference, and completely subjective....there just isn't an objective way to decide "what's best" - or "ideal" - your question has no "right" answer....

Best of luck, have patience and enjoy the camera.

Peace,
D.


Wow, what a nice picture! You must have a really great camera!
