- Can others edit my Photos
- Photos NOT OK to edit
can you post the uncrop version?
Also, am I accurate in saying that a 15x20 photo zoomed 100%, would be equal to looking at a 30x40 print? ( I guess now that I stopped to look at it like that, it doesn't worry me so much haha ) Since this doesn't even have any type of processing applied.
I noticed it as well with my 7D, and it's always bothered me. As long as I don't crop down or look at it too close it's been okay; the prints turn out well and the reduced sizes I use for online display look fine, but still...
I just sort of accepted it as part of this particular camera's IQ, and as long as the prints and screen work turn out okay, haven't made a big deal of it. During editing though, it's really made me grind my teeth and cringe at times. And it's really brought to mind all the conversations I've read about the 7D packing all those pixels into a crop factor sensor, and how that doesn't quite work out well on paper, and maybe not as great as we'd like in real life either.
Again, I mostly shrugged it off and learned to live with it.
But then a few days ago, I got my full frame 5DMKII, and I'm absolutely STUNNED at the difference in quality. Had I known then what I see first hand now between the two cameras, I'd have skipped right past the 7D, honestly. The images from the 5DMKII make the 7D's look downright ugly, IMHO.
There are still some things I like about the 7D that I wish I had on the 5DMKII, but when it comes to this particular category, IQ, I'm now quite dissappointed in the 7D. At first I figured I'd keep it as a backup camera body but now I've begun to consider selling it and the 40D that's also just sitting now, as well as the couple of S lenses I have, in order to help pay for a backup 5DMKII instead.
Just one shooter's opinion, but there it is.
