  • Yeah the new features of the camera App are very tempting. The only thing missing now is a Raw mode, at least in buffer mode where a user can tweak images settings before committing to JPEG.
  • I'm going to hold because even if everything is fine the release of a newer version is already imminent. Apple already stated that HealthKit has bugs and need another iOS revision. I'm sure there ...
  • With due respect to Mr Westfall but he needs to be informed that MOV and MP4 are not CODECs. Those are Media Container Files.
    As far as I know the 7DII has not choice the CODEC as he implies, It...

  • Created discussions Hold back upgrading to iOS 8.
    If you have an iPhone4S, iPad Mini, iPad2 or iPod Touch 5G, you might consider holding back on installing iOS8. According to ARS Technica's test it will downgrade the performance and some features ...
  • Apple still have another event for iPad, iPod and TV in October. They might announce a photo-centric iOS device there but I doubt it. All they need to do is to put a good sensor and lens on a iPod...

  • Smaller buffer, longer battery life. 12MP still give you plenty of resolution to crop from. Also you can freeze motion easier by choosing faster shutter speeds.

  • Yes in the end we judge a camera on how it satisfy our specific shooting needs.
    But still, no matter what you shoot, the sensor seems to be the weakest link here. Small pixels on a cropped...

  • No, they just have to join the personal mobile computer which happens to have a phone.
    Ironically, these days people are texting more than placing phone calls.
    I'm surprised it has taken this long.

  • Those might look like gimmicks to you, but are actually useful features for others.
    A professional camera like the 7DII has to be flexible and versatile enough to make the work of...

  • The future of Photography seems to be on the hands of Electronics Giants like Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, Apple, etc.
    Right move from Panasonic.
    I hope Apple do something similar since I'm in the iOS...

  • I am talking about Canon choosing to stuff 20MP in a crop sensor.
    That is overkill and detrimental for an action camera in buffer capacity and image quality.
    I would have put a 12MP sensor instead.

  • For a camera that is supposed to remain relevant for the next 5 years this is disappointing.

    I was expecting:

    -Much better image quality either by using larger pixels or a more revolutionary...

  • For video it still skip pixels which makes it prone to moire, no articulating LCD, small pixels stuffed in a cropped sensor and wow Canon finally have the audacity to incorporate an...

  • Not with that mediocre mega small pixels stuffed sensor. Check the Sony A7S, 12MP on a FF sensor, that is what I call a serious tool for uncompromising image quality.

  • I am referring to the Sensor. And in that regard the A7S will do much better (less noise) in high shutter speed situations, freezing motion under available light.

  • This new 7D II is still skipping pixels for video read-out which translate in noise and moire. And talking about noise 20mp for this sensor size is a really bad compromise for somebody serious...

  • Wow, I had my expectations low with Canon and was patient thinking they were working hard in fresh and innovative products. But this is disappointing I think is reasonable to say Canon golden days...

  • The results are bellow expectations because the XAVC Codec implementation in this camera is still discarding Chroma information, just like H.264. It is 4:2:0 instead of 4:2:2.
    That, and the tiny...

  • Wow Full sensor readout for video!
    Sony does it again! They are making the most interesting cameras these days
    Very likely I ll switch fron Canon to Sony in the near feature.
    Sony if u r...
