Here is a link to his video. I have not seen this yet so I have no idea what it really says just what I read on his blog. His blog seems to state he is overall impressed but that he has some issues.

Too bad it was all JPG, but with the improved JPG engine and much better auto-ISO performance, this may be the camera where you don't need to shoot only raw. Just keep the raw in case something goes wrong, otherwise just use the JPG right out of the camera, even at ISO 16000. That would be more exciting to me for sports.

Like the fact that the rating button can be the lock button, have to see if my 5D3 has that...

the full jpgs are quite soft and noise reduction pretty aggressive.

Obviously good enough for his clients... whether wedding, or sports. The 6D and 5D3 also have very heavy handed NR in-camera with the JPGs, that is nothing really new.

We are his clients. The Kelby empire is built on selling books and training to photographers and he does it better than anyone. By his own admission, he is also paid by Canon so I am less swayed by his opinion of the camera.

So people will pay for his material and training, but his opinions on the new camera matter little? That seems odd. He also isn't just a Canon talking head, he is more than vocal about issues with Canon, he strikes me as somebody that just wants the best hardware for what he shoots, if that means switching brands, like he has in the past. Again, we now have 3 big wigs in the marketplace, whether they are subsidized by Canon or not, that like the camera. That means more than comments, concerns or doubts raised by individuals that have zero intent on buying the 7D2. ;)

Next video/blog will be Arthur's input for birding.

The 7D2 will be as big a seller as the 7D, if not more so. It has the Nikon folks considering switching. It will deliver the goods just fine, just as the 7D did before it. :)

Your opinions on gear matter a lot more to me if you aren't getting paid by the company to endorse it. I felt like his video about switching rang as very hollow and corporate rather than real and genuine.

And no, just because someone is really good at teaching Photoshop doesn't mean you should take all their gear advice, especially when they are paid by the company they are promoting.

Sales numbers don't mean a ton to me. Canon sells a lot more rebels than they do 1DXs but it doesn't mean the rebel is better.

Anyone switching systems over a consumer camera or prosumer camera is an idiot.

well, kelby seemed pretty upfront about the camera. What I got from the video is that the camera is a budget friendly sports camera/backup pro body. It's not meant to replace a 1Dx, though the video is kind of a huge sales pitch, he actually gets to some flaws of the camera, which makes it somewhat realistic of a review. However, Kelby does a good job of avoiding direct comparisons to other brands when asked about it, and he does a good job at deflecting those questions :p

At least he's not Zach Arias, who is a total shill through and through ;)

I think we all agree about that. And it is smart to have something in that niche.

i like alot of what scott kelby has to say about his gear and his switch over to canon,the 7d-2 looks good,what seems odd is they removed the meta data and he's good at deflecting the questions or its just to soon about this camera !

I feel the enthusiasm not very genuine. Smooth talking discussion with entertainment factor.

I dont find rattling 10fps impressive unless spray and pray is your methods. Perhaps kelby should hold a Sony A77mk2 crop body rattling 12fps LOL!! Slap on a sony 70-400 long telephoto lens and be shocked how razor sharp that variable aperture lens is....

Regardless what we say the 7dmk2 will sell like mad.......how else can we keep up with the Joneses on the POTN :)
