:lol:

The comparison was so terrible I had to grab a screenshot of it.

Look at the camera dial. I mean wonderful, no noise. But no dial too! :lol:

I don't think I'll be paying too much attention to Northrup in the future. This was like amateur-hour review, and as an amateur, I can even recognize that it was terrible. :lol:

ISO 20000 RAW with slight noise reduction.

Love the skin tones this produces even more than the previous model.

Well, sounds like it will take a longer time for me to pull out the camera with the mindshift.

Thank you for your information :-)

I didn't say that. To clarify, Osprey and Gossamer Gear and other non-camera-dedicated hiking bags with camera inserts put into them to repurpose them as camera bags take longer to access. The Mindshiftgear Rotation (Horizon, Trail, etc) are faster than anything out there if you're using the rotating portion. The Fstop Gear bags are mostly backpanel access and require you take off the bag and put it down, making it slower than the Mindshiftgear Rotation, the same speed as the Backlight 26, and faster than the non-camera-dedicated hiking bags.

Most reviews on Youtube can shove it. Nothing like trying, owning and using the camera IRL.

This is my first one series so I have spent the last few days with the camera in my hands for hours memorizing where all the buttons are and setting up all the options.

I have two nit picks with the camera so far:
1) the FEC button is in the completely wrong spot on camera left - should be on the right side - switching with EC or WB
2) bigger beef is that while the AF points are in red (fantastic), in in viewer display items (WB, drive mode, metering mode, etc) are not light up, unlike with the 5DSR, so if you are in a dark room you cannot see properly to change them - this seems like a huge oversight - or I'm missing something

1-series cameras are evolutionary - the FEC control has been like that forever (introduced I think on the EOS-1N), the target market demands familiarity more than anything - hence why it has never changed.

There is a light on the shoulder of the camera so you can see the settings on the main LCD in dark conditions.

only problem I have with the 135L is over use. I love the look and Im too cheap to pop for the 200L

Its one of my favorite lens to use when I have enough room

Well, this just proves that skill > gear. Even with 14fps, my timing still sucked and haven't captured the moment when the ball connects with the bat. I suck. :lol:
