Have you seen this video yet? B)

I think I can hear GB's CC scream from here... :lol: :lol:

Or will that be MM? Or Al, or you? :P Or you prefer the D800? (2x as many MP!)

Refer to grip comment earlier.

Besides, there's a landscape lens and new phono cart well ahead on my lust list. Mind you, they are as equally realistic at the moment as Hayley Atwell, who also appears on said lust list...

Nah, as I said, only (and I mean ONLY) if Tattslotto is good to me. (Apropos of nothing, just got my ticket in this weekend's $22M draw. ;) )

But, it is good to read what the 1DX has as a subset of the new stuff will be in the 5D3. E.G. the electronic level from the 7D is in the 1DX.

Karvan version in Spirited has been spending far too much time in the gym.

was just having a look at full HD camcorders (mostly for home videos of my daughter) and remembered that the 7D does this as well, so possibly a case there for an upgrade of my old 350D.

Al, how have you found the 7D for video? Have heard the PQ is very good, but the audio can be a bit hit and miss?

So why was there a split in the 1D line to have the MkIV and the 1Ds?

And does it seem odd that in the 1D-X they are only using an 18MP sensor instead of something with a higher pixel count - even 21MP or maybe 24MP?

I know pixel count isn't everything, but for the flagship product, you usually get some good specs.

I think it's about the quality of those Megapickles and the much higher 'native' ISO that results......

Well the AF and AE system seems to be the best yet from Canon... Considering a dedicated DigicV processor is being used for the AE system, don't think this has been done before?

I'm guessing the downgrade to 18MP is to increase the FPS speed?

Which also has an added benefit of bumping up ISO to even higher levels? I actually wonder how that works, can you actually see anything in the VF?

Instead of chasing megapixels, they are now going after mega ISOs? :P

As for the split, one model is full frame the other has a crop factor of 1.3(?).

Oooh!

I just assumed they were both FF being 1D and all.

Some of those mega ISO numbers seem ridiculous. How they do it without introducing noise is beyond me?

This event happens tomorrow!

I'm thinking it's got more to do with cinema rather than still photography...???

I think it's actually more about the pre-leaked 1D-X......
