    60D vs 7DM2

    Thank you.. Foolishly worried about losing something in the transition, but always excited about something gained. Canon should upgrade their menu system. Should not have to have a six week course just to navigate. Focus modes and adjustments were difficult. SD/CF (Cards) should be easier. the...

    Air Brakes.

    DarkShadow, There are a lot of ways to capture: Help me understand how you got here: Shutter speed: Lens: Aperture: Camera: ISO: Time of day: A picture speaks 1,000 words. One shot in 10,000. Perhaps one shot in a Million. Is there a way for us to view the metadata? In reality, is there a way...

    60D vs 7DM2

    I was asked by Photoflyer to comment on my new Canon 7DM2, verses my now defunct Canon 60D. I only used the 60D for three weeks before it would not turn on one morning. Sadly it had been sitting in a closet for years. Ordered a refurb 7DM2 from Canon last week to replace it. Three Examples...

    Longer Lens or Crop Sensor

    Hmm.. Perhaps I should give you some examples, but my 60D overall took noticeably better pictures. I am hoping this is just a learning curve kind of difference, but I've felt a bit disappointed.. I might load a few examples in another thread and let you decide. Different day, different...

    Longer Lens or Crop Sensor

    Joe, Now that totally makes sense! Well worded, focused and seems to be the best way to view this subject. I agree that the most cost effective and sensible answer to the OP's question would be to get a modern cropped camera with a high quality lens. In my case this meant ordering the 7DM2 with...

    Longer Lens or Crop Sensor

    I agree with you. Although the total light gathered by a full frame sensor is quite a bit more than the light gathered by a cropped sensor. I do now agree with you that the aperture is the same F-Stop and does not change or close when you put it on a Cropped sensor camera.. Point well made.

    Longer Lens or Crop Sensor

    BrentC, You said: F-stop on crop or FF is the exact same. The DoF may be different at same f-stop but f2.8 on a crop lets in the same light as f2.8 on FF. And larger DoF does not mean image quality will suffer. Did you not watch the video above titled: "Crop Factor, Why you multiply the...

    Longer Lens or Crop Sensor

    Yes. Reach ( as defined) is independent of Depth of field. And I agree with this definition. This is a worthwhile discussion and helps us understand the complexity of the differences between full frame and cropped. The F-stop being just one of the variables.

    Longer Lens or Crop Sensor

    Real world... Put a 300mm lens on your 24mp crop sensor body -- and have the reach -- to achieve a picture like having a 450mm on your full frame 36mp camera. But not quite the same f-stop and not the same DOF... if you compare this to a 24mp full frame your resolution will suffer...

    Longer Lens or Crop Sensor

    A light hearted perspective, not to be taken seriously. "Reach is real": Perhaps this statement is nothing more than a two dimensional misdirection, same as our flat earth is a two dimensional misdirection. (being a reflection of our ignorance both are a challenge to our perceived reality)...

    Four Hawks:

    Can you help me identify? Yes, they are not in focus, heavily cropped and are hawks, but not sure of their identity. Used an old canon XS to capture. Could the last one be an Osprey?
