awsome,thanx for the info,so the 7d is quite abit older than the 6d and others with sd,i didnt know that cf was a faster format for read/write

The 6D is a full frame camera, the 7D is a smaller sensor like your 60D. That is the major reason for the price difference.


Cameras: 7D2, S100
Lenses: 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM, 18-135 STM, 24-70 f/4L IS USM, 50 f/1.4 USM,70-300L IS USM
Other Stuff: 430 EX II, Luma Labs Loop 3, CamRanger

ok so if the 6d was a crop and put side by side the specs on the 7d are much beter so is it fair to say with the 6d u are gaining full frame but lacking spec for spec of its brother the 7d.not to start a 6d 7d war but is it fair to say the 7d is on spec a better unit,i only ask as i may upgrade in the future and if i was to upgrade today it would be to one of those models.

Another difference is that the 7d is using dual processors and one specifically for focusing. The faster startup and cross type focus points make it better for quick sports focusing. 6d is better in my opinion with portraits. Both are awesome cameras but different strengths.

At the time the 7D came out, most SD cards simply could not be written to fast enough to dump 25MB RAW files out of the buffer fast enough to keep up with the 8fps on the camera.An SD card at the time woudl have taken way too long to clear the buffer to make 8fps really usable. Also, 30fps video requires a fast card as well.
Recently the SD cards have caught up in the speed area.

I was really skeptical about CF cards when I moved to the 7D from my rebel but now I have no desire to return. I like the size a lot better. It feels more solid and they are easier to keep track of. I put a CF reader into my desktop machine so I just pop the card out of the camera and into the computer. I have a USB reader for my laptop that works just fine.

OP, I don't know about others, but your use of texting makes it very difficult to read your original problem statement. The lack of capitals to begin a sentence, and no spacing before a new sentence also don't help.

Best reply the OP got in this thread. I gave up fully understanding the question in the original post.

Yeah, I gave up as well.

BTW - Gene, your rendition of the American National Anthem at Wembley on Sunday was dire.

I thought this was a photography forum not an English class.

It is a 'Forum' - a meeting or site for the communication of ideas and views. Note that word - 'communication'.

The reason there are 'rules' about written English is not just so that pedants can have fun correcting those who can't follow the rules. They've developed over the centuries as a way of making written communication easier to follow.

The use of proper sentences and capitalisation makes it a lot easier for the reader to follow what's being said. If the writer can't be bothered to make their written message easy to read then they shouldn't be surprised if readers can't be bothered to put extra effort into reading what they've writ.

Two of those who posted that they couldn't be bothered are two of the most knowledgeable and helpful members of this forum. Who knows how many others just gave up trying to interpret the posting without mentioning why.

But in the end it's up to the poster. They can put a little tiny bit of effort into posting something readable. Or they can accept the fact that some people won't be bothered, will ignore that post and, if they're like me, add the poster to their 'Ignore' list.

Exactly. And expecially for us who aren't native English speakers, it just makes it worse to follow. It's all about respect for others - express yourself in a reasonably proper way.

So yes, this is a photography forum, but it uses English as a communication channel. So let's go by the English class as good as we can, please. It's not too hard to capitalize the first letter in a sentence - most keyboards have two shift keys. And to make a space after period and comma - the space key is the biggest of them all.

Reason #1 for it is this ^^. This is a very international forum, and not all are equal in their comprehension of English. For those of us who are proficient in the language, it is our responsibility to make our posts as easy as possible to read and understand.

It also demonstrates that we actually attended class and paid attention to what was being taught. When I see this sort of texting shorthand, my first thought is that the person is simply too lazy to be bothered with using proper communication skills. :rolleyes:
