Thanks JasonC007, I guess I should just go and pick one up at the store and decide from there.

I'm really excited about the video AF. This looks like a great technology for folks who want to use a DSLR for photography but still take the occasional casual video of the kids playing and such. It has proven too difficult with past bodies that are essentially MF only. Hard to do with shallow DOF. I really want one of these to complement my 5D3. Checked out a few videos on Youtube today and it really looks impressive for what I have in mind.

Ranger 'I will shoot at 15 seconds ISO 3200 tonight and upload the raw after" thanks for doing this,
Shinksma ' However, it was really noisy after the export, so I exported in original size, then resized in GIMP like normal - looks a whole lot better that way. Weird.' That is a very important observation.

hello people wrote in post #16252329 (external link)
There's no way in hell I would upgrade from my 60D to the 70D...why should I? Why would I? My 60D takes friggin' awesome pictures.

I mean if you're a collector or a hoarder by all means hoard.

If you must have the newest by all means sell your old one to fund for the flashier one.

They all take great photos in the right hands

Am I right or am I right?

Yeah

Well, since you quoted me first.... Yea, you are correct! I love the photos from my 40D, and just got my 70D this morning! My 10D before the 40D took great photos too. so you can see I don't need the newest model every time one is released... I'm every 3rd model release, so my next will most likely what ever comes after the 90D.

I feel it takes me a while to get to know each model and be able to use it to my best potential. I know almost every function and adjustment without ever thinking about it after a few months of shooting, then enjoy the relationship for 5-6 six years until enough changes and/or improvements are made to warrent a purchase.

Hmm it was four years ago, and I'd only owned the camera for a day or so, so I really can't remember. Would DPP be able to drag that info out from the exif?

Tried that but no joy, might work for you if you have the original file from the camera

Mine came today, going out this weekend to have a proper go with it. Was pleasantly surprised that the MFA is settable at both ends of the zoom like the 5D3...

Just a couple of very quick shots in the half hour i had in the fading light..

The SL1 has auto focus with STM lenses, and works quite well.

I've been using the 6D and the MP65 but today I got a couple shots off with the 70D and the Sigma 150mm Macro...you'd think the Sigma 150 would be easier than the MP65, maybe its just a matter of familiarity but I've much to learn with the 150 too. After this round I know this Canon body has plenty of potential and that the limitations will be my skills.

New 70D owners...

Which AF selection area are y'all using most of the time?

  • Single Point AF (Manual selection)
  • Zone AF (Manual zone selection)
  • 19-point automatic selection AF

Single manual for me, I never let the camera decide where I wanna focus, but then I do a lot of macro.....

Big snail, well, reasonable sized one, slimeing toward me on a house brick in the garden. Really a choice of getting plenty of the head in focus or keep it more creative. Me being me, I usually opt for the more distinctive option. Softbox on the flashgun, live view. Touch shutter mode.

Aye.

One eye or two?
