    My new twitter friend @Photo_John just wrapped up a weekend with the 7D, he's been putting up various pictures on his site for a few days now.

    He posted this up about 20 minutes ago

    Canon 7D Image Samples

    From the site:

    Ah So Excited!

    I really can't wait for this camera. I'm a filmmaker and I recently got into photography, this will be my first DSLR (Don't worry I've used several before, but this will be MINE). The stills seem to be pretty competent and the video is just incredible. If anyone is interested in the video (Though photogs seem to be very upset about this new video SLR movement for whatever reason) you can check out these videos by THE Philip Bloom. He got a test unit and he's been killing himself to get test footage up for those interested. Why are you photogs so angry about this new functionality? Just curious.

    Finally, some good videos made on it! I saw a few that were basically just put it on a tripod in front of your house and shoot a car going by (booooring!). Looks dang good, dang very good. I have no idea why there is a slight uprising about DSLR's doing video. I think it's a welcome addition, it's not like it's hurting the quality of the photography at all.

    some argue that the time and resources spent on developing video features could have been better spent on further improving photography-centered features, or that the costs of including video in the camera could be substituted with lower priced models or better features in a given camera range (i.e. 100% viewfinder, better weather sealing, etc).

    The 7D has a 100% viewfinder and it's weather sealed, so they actually threw that in there as well. (Link) Among many more very new features. So, I understand the argument, but this camera seems to stare that argument right back in the face.

    And, seeing as Canon already makes HD Cameras, I don't think implementing the feature was really that major of a development process, that is, if the Digic processor runs the same programming language as the Video Digic processors. And it would make sense that they do... I think :)

    First, it hardly costs Canon anything to implement the video. Second, they couldn't have gone any lower due to the xxD series. Third, video is going to be here from now on in every single dSLR (from Canon at least) so guys, live with it :rolleyes:

    Took a look at the photos... EXTREMELY aggressive noise reduction at around ISO 1600 and up... look at the text of the open book and compare it to the ISO 100... it's somewhat of a useless comparison until we can see the RAW

    Yeah, apparently the 5DmII does that to its JPEGs as well. I'm very keen to see some raw files from a 7D. I'd also like to see what DxO makes of its sensor. The time is coming for me to upgrade my camera. Alas, my trusty little XSi can't deliver all that I need at this point.

    Are there any photogs interested in this camera?

    The sports and nature photogs will be all over it. Crop sensor with lots of MP for even more cropping and a high frame rate. It should be a great camera for these markets.

    Which is why nobody (except maybe Ken Rockwell) still shoots only JPEG. ;)

    Still trying to track down a date when DxO will support Snow Leopard, let alone the 7D with the new 15-85mm.

    if no one were interested, no one would be talking about it.


    Stephen Eastwood has some samples up, converted from RAW. ideal situation since he was using lights, but infinitely more useful than camera Jpegs: http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?thread_id=497296

    Huh?
    Plenty of people shoot jpg, because many of them know when to use it and when not to. If you need to shoot a long sequence of photos, for instance, you may be better off shooting jpg as the buffer gets filled a lot more quickly if you shoot RAW.

    Don't hold your breath. My experience with the current state of DxO and their product has been one of a company with little interest in the Mac platform beyond expanding their saleable market, and a questionable sense of direction in their own product's functionality and design. Mac development trails PC development in both time and quality fairly significantly last I saw.


    All the best,

    It was a joke. The smilie with the "wink" was supposed to denote that...

    I thought the wink was directed at Ken Rockwell …*

    I would be, except that my 40D produces images that are perfectly fine. The only thing that the 7D would do for me would be give me more megapixels to crop out my mistakes; imagine using only 1/4 of the frame and still having a file of over 4mp!

    The photos look pretty good up to 1600; I would want to see anything over that coming from my own experiments before I would say they were good or not.

    I think Ken actually has some pretty valid points for a lot of photographers. I shoot raw sometimes but quite often I shoot JPG and let the camera to the processing. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to process a bunch of pictures.

    The reason i asked that question was because I have seen a lot of photographers that are just like "eh" to the camera, but a lot of video/film guys like myself are going ape **** over it. I think the camera just passes at 3200, but best quality def stops at 1600 yeah.

    I agree. 3200 looks quite usable. Most importantly for me, it looks about like ISO 800 on my XSi. Pretty incredible, given the pixel density.

    I think it's fair to say that the 7D will see the same kind of demand as the 5DmII. It will probably be a very hot item for the next year, complete with supply shortages.

    Ugh I hope my money hurries up and comes in cause I don't want to have to struggle looking around for the camera for ages.

    If that were the case, I would've put a PayPal "Donate" button on the bottom of my post with some crybaby whining pity-party about needing help to support the size of my growing family (as if that somehow was anyone else's fault) and then linked that page to one with a gratuitous pic of me holding some monster expensive Nikon birder glass that I just happened to own.

    ;) <--- Note: "Wink" smilie attached!

    Yeah, he does. Problem is to sort out the good advice from the bad. I don't find him as bad as others portray him, though, and his general advice to stop worrying about technology and starting to take pictures hits home, too. People start nitpicking about details and some are wrong or at least need to be qualified.

    and since it's new photographers who read his site (and take it seriously) the most, that makes it completely pointless. he doesn't have much of anything to say, and what there is is buried 6ft deep in crap. just go somewhere else.
