We all remember the nonsense about "hot spots" and all with the 5d2 when shooting with lens cap still on.

So, before we can truly judge the 7d's capabilities, we had better all be shooting with the lens cap still on. Maybe we should even post our examples.

Plenty of 7D black frame RAW file sensor analysis over on the dpreview site.

This thread wasn't meant to be a serious one. I was mocking the idiotic notion of worrying about what a photo looks like when taken with the lens cap still on.

Hey, it's no joke! Some of us (do not include me, please!) think of this as art! :rolleyes: (I too am NOT being serious!) :lol:

My keeper rate might go up dramatically if I shot more with the lens cap on!;)


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

Clearly a macro lens is the right choice since the lens cap is so close...

I have found that shooting with the lens cap on works best when you remove the CF card first! It's a fool proof way of not being called "dumb"!  :p :lol: :lol: :lol:

Oh, and when people look at you funny ... just tell them you were testing the flash! :lol:
