  3. So why do i need gps in my camera? Even wifi or nfc make more sense.. 

  4. I think that most of your comments crap. If you want to record buy video camera. The camera should be need primarily to make a good photo. Fuji hah. Sony is good but not as Canon. Check out who has the highest sales. See other tests. I have a feeling that you get paid to speak ill of EOS cameras. Fuji hahah. What is it?

  5. I love Canon. Eos 7D  MARK II briliant

  6. Kudos to Mark Horsburgh, I just got my 7D Mark II and I need to schedule time to visit action events and places similar to where he visited. Great Video! 

  7. What camera bag u use??

  8. I am primarily interested in still photography. I currently own 2 canon 40d's and have a fair amount of money tied up in Canon lenses. I'm not a Canon fanboy, but I am excited about buying the 7D MKII, because "high" iso has been a real limitation for me with low light shooting, for which birds seem to just love showing up. I don't have a problem with people who have different needs or wants griping about certain missing features. It is extremely important that self-interest be communicated to the manufacturer of any product, so that the desires of individuals, however many or few they be, are heard by the company. That is how they learn what those who spend their hard-earned money want. In other words it gives a warning to them that some of their base users might just jump ship if they don't get their collective act together and push themselves to the top of the curve on product development and delivery in every aspect possible. While it is absolutely true that it's a big financial hit for a heavily invested Canon user to move to a different manufacturer, it is an equally big hit to Canon to lose a user who will potentially continue to spend significant money on another company's products. It does cut both ways, even if it is a much more personal hit to us financially. That said, not being a videographer, I'd rather have a system tailored to still photography, so that the cost of video features don't increase the price of the camera.

    I think what we have here is a camera that is pretty clearly designed for sports and wildlife photography dabbling in video to an extent that is just tantalizing enough to generate some righteous backlash among those who have a wider repertoire than myself. I see no reason to revile those for whom this is a pleasant upgrade, or those who point out features that they feel should have been included. It would be nice to know how much it would realistically cost for the features to be added, but I've yet to see any estimates of any sort. If there are any engineers out there, please chime in. And whether you are a Canon user or not, best of luck in getting what you want in your equipment. Keep speaking up for your self-interest, because it gives them a chance to address concerns before you move to another company's product, and that's how the market works best. For some that boat has already sailed; for the rest, I guess we'll see.

  9. Why do you want more focusing points? Have you used a 6d? I have owned one and it's a very fine camera. Again I would urge people to stop getting hung up on specs, its becoming ridiculous. I bet half these people don't actually take pictures. If you want more focus points, more robust etc then buy a 5d mk3 ! If you can't afford it then you obviously don't need it.

    The 7d is crop version of 1d which does not have 4k either.
    Your more likely to see 4 k in the 1d series before any prosumer crop body from canon.
    Because I believe quite rightfully they see it as a bit gimmicky and panders only to the spec list readers. I bet most of the negative comments are spies from competing companies.
    

  10. Yeah…think i'll wait for 5D4.

  11. I'm quite happy with my 70d, but the 7d MK II is a disappointment. If you're a sports photographer, then it's a decent camera. For everything else, there are so much better cameras in that price range. It's sad how Canon holds back the features of their own cameras (as ML proves) just so they don't rival their higher camera lines. They don't seem to realize that people are fed up with their artificial limitations and just switch to another camera manufacturer. Does Canon really think anyone is going to buy a EOS-1D C for 12 grands just to get c-log? For 12 grands, you can buy a Black Magic Cinema Camera (4k, RAW) and still have 9 grands left for a DSLR and lots of good glass….

  12. Never seen canon market a crop frame camera to be used as a professional tool before. Any opinions?

  13. I appreciate the video, hope to see more!

  14. I find this camera fascinating and disappointing at the same time. As a Pentax user I drool over the advanced AF, especially AF.C. At the same time Canon's still subpar sensors and poor dynamic range, even in the latest models, still make me laugh.

    Why can Canon not just start using the latest excellent Sony sensors featured in the Pentax K3 and Nikon D7100 – it would be the complete package.

  15. Cool vid when is it on sale !!

  16. Got mine will be using in anger this weekend so watch out form some sample images of UK Huskie racing.

  17. WHY cant I find anyone testing the action shots of the 7DM2 hmmmm . Canon lovers are hiding this from us!! I want to see how it keeps up with someone running.
