Photographing the Danube Delta with Canon 7D

A couple of month ago I have done a short field test of the new Canon EOS 7D. A lot of water has flowed down the Danube since than and I had some more quality time with my camera. 

There are some things I'm not happy with:

1. Focus is too sensitive and will not lock as well as my 1D Mark II

2. NO ISO bracketing mode

3. There is no way you can limit the Auto ISO and as a result the camera will shoot at ISO 3200 most of the time… shame 

4. Image quality is not always good.

 

Some things that I like:

1. Zone focusing works great with flying things in clear background

2. Movie mode is great

3. Battery life with the grip

4. Crop factor for tele lens

But enough with the talking lets let the images speak for themselves…

    O incantare acest colaj!
    Posturi deosebite,dinamice,momente speciale, bine puse in lumina,rafinat compuse si puse in pagina,felicitari!
    Chiar acum plec spre balta unde ma voi intalni cu un prieten care are 7D;sper sa mai gasesc ceva pasari si sa prind si …pelicanul (am fost sunata dimineata de acolo ca in zona a aparut un pelican-balta este in Ialomita!).
    Diferenta ptr mine este mare,eu acum avand un 400D +100-400L:);am sa revin luni cu noile impresii despre 7D la care ma gandesc serios ca fiind inlocuitorul obositului meu 400:)

  2. Superb photos Danny boy. I felt transported back to your world. Many thanks it was a delight. Images of Dragonflies exceptional!  Keep it up. Paul.

    "3. There is no way you can limit the Auto ISO and as a result the camera will shoot at ISO 3200 most of the time… shame "
    din cate stiu nu poti seta nici timpul maxim de expunere. parca de la 5D2 incoace il ia in functie de focala. autoiso de pe camerele Canon e doar o specificatie pe hartie. eu plang de vreo cativa ani dupa autoiso de la nikon care acum 2 ani avea pe camerele dslr low end posibilitatea de a seta timpul maxim de expunere si iso maxim.
    intrebare: autoiso se incrementeaza in pasi de 1/3 sau 1 stop ? (la nikon e setabil)
    p.s.   imaginea cu cardul in rasarit si cele in ploaie sunt favoritele mele

  7. Faine pozele, Dane! Sper sa ne vedem cand mai vii pe Transfagarasan…

    revin ca au aparut stiri noi.
    cica la noul Canon 60D se poate pune limita superioara la autoISO.  mai lipseste un exposure compensation in modul M sa il faca folosibil. aproape ca mi-ar veni sa rad daca nu as fi utilizator de canon.

    intre timp am mai aflat ca ISO bracketing l-au scos incepand de la 1D mark III ca cica nu este folosit . scrie in 1D m3 whitepaper la pagina 36:

    Salut Eliz … e grele astea cu Canon… ce sa mai zic. Eu cred ca ma intorc la vechiul meu 1D ca 7D imi face zile fripte. Salutare.

  10. Eliz Anghel says:

    tot e bine ca ti-ai pastrat si 1D-ul, macar ai la ce sa te intorci.

  11. Daniel says:

    Da pai am trecut la 1D din nou… E un pic ciudat mai ales la selectia punctelor de focus… fara joystick e nasol. Ecranul e alta chestie… diferenta de la cer la pamant. Plec in Elvetia peste o saptamana sa il duc la reparat…. o-m vedea.

  12. Eliz Anghel says:

    nici nu stiam ca 1Dm2 nu are joystick, ecranul stiam ca e mic cam ca la toate aparatele din anii aceia.
    exista ceva serviceuri canon si prin apropiere  http://www.crisprofessionalservices.ro/ sau http://camerakft.hu/ pt cei din vest. eu mi-am reparat un Canon 100-400mm in Ungaria si nu am nimic de reprosat.

  13. Daniel says:

    Dap… no joystick.. no fun. De reparat le repar in Elvetia de obicei pentru ca aia sunt neam de ceasornicari iar noi suntem mioritici deci neam de ciobani ๐Ÿ™‚ … vorba tatalui meu – “As interzice romanilor sa mai construiasca ceva mecanic in urmatorii 100 ani”. Plec pe data de 4 Feb in Elvetia si voi duce cu mine la reparat: 7D, Canon 70-200mm f4 IS L, Sigma 180mm Macro… sa vedem cat o sa coste
