Still finding out new things about the 7D2. It has an IR receiver and the shutter can be triggered by a smartphone with an IR transmitter. A small thing but something else the 40D didn't have. (The Rebel XT had an IR receiver but smart phones had not been invented yet.)

Thanks for sharing. Going to try some of those setting to see if they work for me.

Not a great photo but here's one from today, in very nasty weather. American Wigeon is a rarity in Japan.

I hope Adobe update Lightroom quickly, I processed this in DPP as a jpeg and then in Photoshop. Haven't done that route for a long long time. Everything I do seems to look either oversharpened or undersharpened.

A lot of new stuff in the camera's menu to get used to for those of us upgrading from the original 7D.

No, that just means the index finger dial is shutter and the rear dial is apterture adjustment, just as you would expect on a dual wheel Canon. You could reverse them if you wanted to or assign a couple of another adjustments to the rear dial, but I am not sure why you would.

I do it to make sure the top index finger dial controls the Aperture in both the Av mode as well as Manual mode.

The other thing I do is set the lock switch to lock the multi-controller (joystick) to prevent accidental AF point changes. I don't have issues with the quick control dial getting moved and a 1/3 stop change in aperture isn't going to usually be a big deal, but AF points getting bumped can be :)

Yep it can be useful for that.

I just leave mine in M and use Auto ISO 99% of the time. When combined with the correct metering method and/or now being able set exp comp for Auto ISO, I don't find any value in P/Tv/Av.

Beautiful capture!

Great shot!
What is the effective extra reach that you get from 7D2 for small birds faraway, compared to the same shot using 5D3? I am assuming that 5D3 would allow a bit more cropping without compromising picture quality.

Doing the math, the 7DII puts about twice as many pixels on target per square mm than the 5DIII. 5DIII is 25600 pixels per square mm and the 7DII is about 53300 for the same area. How that translates into reach advantage is more difficult to assess because optically there is no reach advantage. You just have more pixels on the target to play with.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Great shot! - Have you considered stopping down a little to control the CA and bring the whole bird into focus (looking at the lower right)?

I keep trying to get good captures of the hawks in my neighborhood, I got a couple of sweet ones one day with the 70D, but just a quick snap with the 7D2.

Time to update your sigs some of you :)

BTW, I don't put my gear list in my sig to brag, I put it in there as a point of reference so when people are reading what I'm posting they know my experience with the gear I have listed - basically they can tell if I am making stuff up or probably know what I am talking about (maybe..).

This is one of the few chickadee shots I've see where the eye can be seen. Excellent!
