Camera Upgrade help ...

Hi guys (& ladies) I currently have a 7D & a 1D4,...im thinking about upgrading the 7D as Im not happy witht he noise & the hit & miss AF.
I shoot Aussie Rules Footbal mostly daytime here but winter days offer low light so AF is a bit of luck...I also shoot Wakeboarding, Warbirds & Motorsport/ Ski Racing Boats ,MotoX & Freestyle MotoX..
The thing I find galling is the inconsistancy of the 7D AF & the 7D IQ especially the noise, when PPing the 7D images I find them less tolerant of PP work,...It does have a

I have a 5D3 and have just done the latest Firmware upgrade that gives autofocus to F8 (but only with centre spot). I had been considering a 1Dx but it doesn't have F8 capability. At Shuttleworth at the weekend I did find the buffer filled unexpectedly (first time ever) but I had it recording to an SD card rather than the CF (I still haven't quite sorted out all the card options, I wanted it to record stills to CF and video to SD but got it the wrong way round!) I don't think you'll regret a 5D3 - I have a 7D as my back up but almost never use it.

Canon will have to call it a bug of some kind eventually because everyone I know with a 5D3 complains about how badly SD drags it down.

Stick with CF and you'll be much happier.

@ AL: I think I gave you my $0.02 on POTN...

Thanks Dan, Steve, Jay (I think you've done made something of yourself for sure!), Mark (and that's an excellent shot for TOPP 3700), Jim, Brian, Curtis, David, Jo, and Al.

Now on to Anatomy and Physiology I and its lab, Intro to Health Care Delivery, and then some classes for me, B&W Photography and Darkroom, Yoga, and Tai Chi for the summer session. Anatomy and Physiology II and Microbiology and their labs for Fall semester along with Computer Photography.

Jeff, wow on the Solar Impulse. reminds me of Close Encounters Hope you get to see it leave.

@Al: I miss my old 5D3. And I own a 1DX.

Does that answer your question?

1DX will AF at f/8 also with the latest firmware. I'd go 5DmkIII. The AF is amazing. Best of any camera I have used. I would never even consider a 1dMkIII. The AF on that camera is just no good, and 10mp is no good either.

Thanks, Jeff, Niall, Jay Steve & Tim...

Out of all I think Tim probable shoots closest to my kind of images,...with Motorsport....
I just shoot with less skill...
Thinking about keeping the 1D$ & getting a 5D3,....7D might become Long range . good light camera/Backup....
Seems the 7D is like the 100-400 , OK in good light.....but not quite there...

Thanks guys..

That sound like a good plan, Al. You've already got the 1D4, right?

I love the expression on the boy, looks like he is waiting for someone to make up their mind. I still have a picture of me in my pedal car. Wish I still had that car, make a nice down payment on one of today's cars.

I agree with Tim, the X is most probably the finest action related pro frame in existence, even with it's warts. I've not shot with a 5D III so it could well be in the running, Zim would certainly be the default opinion if I were trying to make a decision.

Normally I have four bodies of the same model, currently I have two X's and two D800's. Don't believe I'll do anything until a next-gen is released from one or both of them. The company that does that will have a big influence on whether I remain an equal opportunity shooter, or go 100% in any one direction.

Had lunch with "The Great Dobransky" a little while ago. We lamented the development of DBI, and revisited the old days. Ruminated on what a matched set of squeak marks would look like on the main thoroughfare in the middle of it.

Interesting, this is the identical exposure set up, but is a more perfect exposure for the existing light so no sliders required. No banding............... (and so sharp you can practically read the highway signs down the tollway!)
