lol I love you man! You remember all of my postYes, the 5DII really is a much better camera than the 7D. I think mine is absolutely fantastic. Added to the low noise performance, it's much easier to get creative depth of field effects, due to the shallower DOF afforded by the full frame sensor.
However, if you change from the 7D you have to realise that the 5DII won't make you look any more manly - since the body size is exactly the same. I really think you should skip the 5DII and go straight or the 1D Mk IV. This is a more substantial camera with a better viewfinder and even faster continuous shooting ability. Just imagine how heads will turn if you rattle off 10 frames per second!
Is of course not missing??It seems there is a light shining from the direction of the camera in the second (ISO 6400) image, thus it seems brighter.
Btw, as the 5D Mark II shoots 21MP pictures, and the one you showed is only 0.7MP, the noise is of course not missing.
The 1D Mk IV isn't full frame.I really think you should skip the 5DII and go straight or the 1D Mk IV. This is a more substantial camera with a better viewfinder and even faster continuous shooting ability. Just imagine how heads will turn if you rattle off 10 frames per second!
A quality tripod is always going to be the best accessory for that sort of shot - shoot at ISO 100 with as deep a field as you desire.My 7D couldn't do that, not without a damn fast lens anyway... and then the depth of field would be ****ed, as that picture looks as good as it does because of the deep focus.
Eh. The 1D Mark IV seems heavily overrated in the high ISO department to me. The D3s crushes it, despite both being rated at 102,000.Did I say it was?
OP was looking for a camera which did better low light and looked more manly. 1D Mk IV is better at both of those than the 5D II.
