I traded the 7D2 and some other dust-gathering gear on a 1DX2 (got it for $900). I was going to get a refurbished 6D as my second body, but my wife insisted I get the 5D4. Who was I to argue? I haven't felt the need for a crop body, but my wife has me covered there if necessary.

You got a 1dx2 for $900? or it only cost you that much after trading the other stuff in?

Jake, you sure that's not the rubber cover for the external power cord notch, right where the tip of your little finger would be holding the grip?

This!

Trouble in Paradise:

Last night on my way home I saw a Harrier hunting over a field off in the distance towards the setting sun. I took the Tacoma off road in hopes of getting a shot, but the harrier had other plans.

During this attempt at extreme long range shooting (I had the 100-400mm, no t-con) two odd things happened.

1st was Computer related:
The camera froze up on me twice. No matter what I pressed it woudl not re-focus or re-meter. At one pint the LCD on top said shutter speed was 1/2000, while at the exact same time the display in the eye peice viewfinder said 1/160 (1/160 was close to the shots I had been taking prior top the lock up) Truly weird. I did not have to turn power off and on to get it "unlocked" instead I switched from AV to M and back to AV.

2nd is physical construction oddity:
As I was shooting, I became aware that a piece of my brand new camera was flopping around lose. I though at first that the rubber grip had just randomly started to peal off, but under closer inspection, it had nothing to do with pealing at all. The move of the battery door further towards center vs. 7D2/5D3 has resulted in no room for the housing to actually wrap fully around the battery opening. A small section of what should be magnesium frame, is now nothing at all, open space. This space is filled by a piece of the rubber grip, supported by only 3 sides of metal frame. The 4th side of rubber is exposed, and easily pried out of place, leaving the battery chamber open to the elements.

I'd love to show you a photo of the weirdness with the rubber grip/battery door, but here at the University of RI wifi is a hot or miss sort of thing (mostly miss) so I can't get the images from the phone to drive...

would like to see pictures of this!

$900 after the trade-ins.


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

I went to a TV shop and they had some 4K playing as a demo.... this might sound silly... but it seemed almost too hi def...sorta more hi def than we actually see. I'm not sure how to explain it. After the ohhs and ahhs I thought I don't think I really want that. Especially for the money.

I agree... but in a few years it will be the norm. I thought the same thing when 1080P came out.

You do realize 1080p started very early 90s... did not really come into play until 2000 and still took till 2005 before it really started to become where 4K is now. It'll take us till 2025 to have half the america population to convert to 4K meaning still another half will have not done so.

We are here now but it will still be a decade before it becomes the norm.

Plenty of time for canon to release another couple 5D generations lol

I'd like to try out the video and see how real world performs.

Am I to take it that a 120MBs CF card is not high speed enough for the 21 shot buffer? 17 seems to be the limit with my cards.

All depends on wrote speed. Not read speed.

Yikes Jake! Any possibility of the body being hit to cause this?

Nope.

I think that's exactly what it is. Is it on other bodies? I've never noticed, but then, if ti's there, it's never come lose on my other bodies.

On every camera I've owned from T2i on up.

Is it just me or does the entire forum see a bit quiet recently?

Seems normal to me. But a lot of it depends on which threads you're following. Of course it's always entirely possible everything that could be said has been said? ;-)a

If you still use the 7D2 for some things, then maybe you haven't "switched"; you've simply expanded. ...

... I don't see myself as ever "switching" or "going full frame" until a FF camera does every single thing better than the best crop camera available.


Nethawked wrote in post #18142805 (external link)
Bingo, we have a winner. Different tools, different purposes. It would never have occurred to me to replace the 7D2 that I use for wildlife and some macros with the 5D4, just as I would never take the 7D2 into a dark theater. Nor would I attempt to duplicate the crop factor of a photo from an APS-C sensor with extenders, TCs and crops. I'm grateful to have both, and that's where my story ends.

I have been shooting crop bodies since before Canon made a full frame and never stopped, and expect that I will continue to do so. If the "One Camera to Rule them all" could exist, then I might be happy with one sensor size, but i can't imagine that camera can possibly exist.

Different tools indeed.


That said, I have to disagree at the same time to part of what Nethawked appears to imply. It appears that the discussion took as out of one self imposed box and put us in another.

A body like the 5D4, or the 5D3 before it, and to a lesser extent 7D2 and 1Dx for that matter, all of these bodies are blurring the lines that were far more solid a few years back.

1Dx and 5D3 turned the Canon world on it's head regarding that fact that it's TWO best action oriented camera were for some time, these two full frame offerings.

Today, you can go either way. One absolutely WOULD use a 1Dx2 for wildlife, despite the fact that it's also Canon's BEST body for shooting in dark environments, and pulling shadows. It's Full Frame, but it's the best action camera Canon has. And I can tall you that I absolutely will be using 5D4 for wildlife, it has better AF than the 7D2, and if I do my part, I will get better image quality and more detail.

I think that finding out how a 5D4 image compares to a 7D2 image when distances are at the outside edge of comfort is a perfectly valid discussion, as the 5D4 will be used for those long shots. Heck,, it would be even if it did not have better AF than the 7D2 or the superior implementation of t-cons, just as many used the 5D3 for such work.
