You've had two wives and two teenage daughters? Your profile says you're 18. Born July 14th, 1995.

He's also said he shot thousands of rolls of film and has a username of CollegeKid. I'm sure he's not lying about any of it. I mean he could have had the first kid at age 6, why do you have to be so judgmental about it? :lol:

Oh, looks like he got banned for something.

I think people are getting the hopes up a little, the possible model on test in Brazil, going by Canons current body realise policy will be the 7DW , a white version of the current 7D that reduces heat gain when used in bright, direct sunlight. :)

:lol::lol:

No. Those photographers will be payed to test the cameras and Canon hopes they will be providing their marketing material for the new cameras.

How stupid would a manufacturer have to be to not take advantage of the free publicity that the World Cup brings? Come to think about it, Canon must sell a ton of DSLR's for the World Cup alone.

FYI, the photographers are not paid by Canon to test the cameras. The cameras are loaned to them during the event and they provide feedback back to Canon. If there is an issue, they'll let Canon know so they can fix the issue. The cameras are also pre-production models so its near complete.

Just take a look at the Olympics. Canon was there and had hundreds of gear available for photographers to be loaned. I'm sure the same will be for the World Cup. This is also a way to get real world test and heavily tested. No way would Canon or any company let people use gear that is not fully functional at a big event. Since the gear will be pre-production, all the major kinks have been ironed out and its just testing to see if there are any minor issues.

Sometimes I think the mods start threads like this just to thin the herd.

The Olympics gear was to be loaned as backups to CPS members. No prototypes.

These are pre-production prototype models. I don't believe Canon would just give it to anyone to shoot at the World Cup. My guess is they are payed for their time and asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Otherwise, the photographer could be wasting a lot of their money making time testing a camera. And, it's a good way to put teeth in a ND agreement.

Who was the photographer who switched from Nikon to Canon after Canon sponsored his program and lent him a camera? Sponsorships are a way of paying photographers as well.

Petapixal says the 7D mark 2 release will be in Sept. in Germany at a big foto show.


A photograph is worth a thousand words, but Photoshop can produce a thousand lies. Photo editing allowed. I need all the help I can get.

if the camera is there for testing you will not see a 7Dmk 2 in 7Dmk 2 skin. It will be disguised or not badged.

I I personally don't even see a market for a 7d2 these days, or any crop sensor geared towards pros. Unless Canon can take a page out of the Pentax K-3's book their prosumer crop line will soon be dead.

Considering the short life of the 1d4 and the fact they don't sell well at $2000, you may well be right...

I think the lack of pixel density is what killed the 1d4. When the 5DII has the same pixel density, it's hard to make a soild case for a reach based camera.

Maybe. And I'm happy with my 7d, but it has the IQ of a rebel, so I'd prefer a camera with less pixels and better IQ, than more pixels but a quality forcing me to downsize most of the photos! That said, many people will just look at the megapixels when they buy.

Actually, the Rebels have the IQ of a 7D (the 7D was first with this sensor). ;)
