Wifi would increase price for mom and dad shooters

And they're going to put Sports Shooters out of business! I mean, my gosh. Now not only can they take equally good pictures, but they can get them online faster than the pros too!

:rolleyes:

thats not what GPS is for.

GPS in cameras is used to geotagging for camera to keep track where pictures were taken, this way you can display them on a map.

I knew that :rolleyes:I assume you were being helpful. just for the record though, I have over 30 years experience working in the technical side of TV Broadcasts, so perhaps I am not a typical woman in that sense and hence am reasonably comfortable with tech. Thanks anyway

As long as you are happy. :rolleyes:

Dog forbid you'd switch it off and the rest of us can actually put it to use.

I would hope you'd will be very happy with it. Me, not so much :D

I did post I was happy with the 7DII's general spec, because I was fed up with all the 'slagging off' about it's specs that I have read on POTN over the last couple of weeks. Just wanted to show that some of us think Canon got it spot on (assuming the sensor is a decent improvement :D)

Seems like there are a few Nikon folks a bit jealous of the 7dii. This goes to say that the grass is alway greener on the other side.

Reading this is hilarious. They should get together with a bunch of people from here and organise some sort of swap meet.

At first blush I'd rather keep my 7d and supplement it with the 6d. Wifi is a feature that I would like to use and I am disappointed they left it off the II. I admit there are a lot of great features but for what I shoot I'm not convinced it is worth the upgrade. I think it is best to step back and wait for the real world reviews before I'll make total condemnation... ;)


I upgraded to the 6D from the 7D a few months ago, I do not think I would change the decision if I was making it today. I do like the look of all those AF points though...

the reasons why I think this are the following

1. focus points so many anyone can hit a barn with a baseball
2. anti flickering light mode is useful for pros but most mom and dads shoot on really crappy light fields
3. reach (I may be wrong on this) since most wont buy or have a 2k lens this increases their reach Pros too but most of them have reach
4. f4-5.6 kit lenses (I got rid of mine) with better low light parents can buy a camera for less than good glass
5. Dual Pixel CMOS AF is the same as 70D? more for vid IMHO
6. 10 fps=wear out the shutter faster this is over kill IMHO Pros may shoot that many mom and dad will wear it out hence back to shop sooner
7. Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors help the EOS 7D Mark II capture up to 1090 JPEG/LARGE,
31 RAW, and 19 RAW+JPEG shots* in a single burst for detailed action photography.
They also enable the camera’s powerful image processing on-the-fly:
lens aberration, variances in peripheral illumination, and image distortion
can all be corrected in real time. We do this in PP so this is for those who dont PP their own (but I can see it as useful for both pros and mom and dad
8. people can sell their 7d for 600 and pick this up for 1100 and or use canon loyalty program

until I see real world IQ then Ill see
I will say this the 70d is prob more of a vid camera and the 7d2 is prob more of a shooter camera

mom and dad can put it on program and shoot away
it has a lotta auto features that will help them shoot

I may be wrong on a lot of this so fire away

Who's gonna figure out if the 7D II has the same issues with blurred images as the 70D?

205 AF points. This is a gimmick.

That's because it's mirrorless and they are image sensor based. Didn't one of sony's recent cameras claim 109 AF points?

Really a shame that Canon didn't have beta testers ready with photo examples of the high ISO and low light abilities ready at the launch. If they could give evidence that supported the low light usage claims many many more preorders would be placed. Mine for sure! I am struggling as I want to place the order right now but really the primary feature to me is the high ISO and low light focus performance so need some evidence of it.

yep
I don't use it with my 70D

new lenses from canon too

EF-S 24 F2.8 STM
EF 24-105mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM
EF 400mm F4 DO IS II USM

So the new 24-105 isn't an L lens? Isn't that odd?

Eh,

Does "mom & dad" really need a 7D2 with a kit lens?

Very best,

i don't think mom and dad shooting with a slower kit lens like a 55-250STM would notice any difference between using the 70D or a 7DII

yeah, maybe if they hold down the burst they'd get an extra 3pics per second...but that doesn't necessarily always mean better pics...it could just be more of the same pics...

I reckon it was about time for the MK II. I am looking forward to seeing hot it stacks up.
I love my 7D but have a spare 7D that would make an excellent trade in for the new MKII.
