Got a new camera today

About time I got something within 5 years old. We replaced the 10D with a 7D, it showed up this afternoon. Gotta say, I'm impressed with it more and more every time I play with it. The focus is spot on and the ISO performance is incredible.


Well I'll leave you all with that. Just wanted to share

I almost "upgraded" to a 7D from my d3100 (nikon ). But then thought, i already have a handfull of nikon lenses, not many, i could have started over but still, decided to stay with nikon and go with a d7000. Besides, my dad wanted a camera, so i figured giving him my d3100 would allow him to buy good glass that i can borrow later, it's my long term investment if i stick with nikon lol. Also, the 7D is a Canon....ewwwwwwwww....

The new autofocus system is mind blowing. I'm so used to pushing a button, selecting a point, and focusing. I'm still new to this fancy AF system, any tips? This is much more complicated

And yes, I took some photos around the house last night at ISO 2000 to try out the high ISO performance. The files are still cleaner than ISO 400 on the 10D.

Lol everyone says high iso's are gimmiky, but it is nice to take pictures at higher isos with cheaper lenses and still get a "decent" picture. Ive bumped up to 1600 iso for taking paintball pics just to keep the shutterspeed somewhere useable for fast shots. Specially since my only 75-200 is only decently useable at f7 or so.

And on the auto focus, the d7000 had a bit like that where it tries to select the subject it thinks you're pointing at, i couldnt turn that option off fast enough, i love my single point focus, no suprizes.

Also i'm not sure if its the same between nikon and canon but there was an AF-? option where it automatically focuses all the time, even when your finger is off the button. ? means i dont know what letter it is lol.

Continuous autofocus? It's called AI Servo on Canons. Yes, I use that quite a bit for sports.

"zones" are a new feature that I'm getting the hang of. I can really see these coming in handy for sports or fast-moving subjects.

Though i thought continous autofocus was when you had to hold the shutter button halfway down and it automatically continously focused.

Pfff, ISO 2000 isn't high ISO these days. Have to be above 12,800 to call it that
