[Official] OCN Camera Thread - Page 867

post #8661 of 29548
I use the (traditional) neck strap when I shoot. If I sling it over my shoulder like that, the camera sits just below on my bottom rib. I wouldn't walk around all day like that, but if I need to bend over, or do some local chores, or move around a bit, it doesn't feel awkward at all. So having it just above the hip should be fine.

Hell, sometimes when I need the camera to stay close to my body, I even shoot from that position. Having a short strap helps to add a little stability to my stance. You can push against it, instead of trying to hold the camera still.

Granted that's not to say having it even lower wouldn't be better.

I've got a question...about how long does Canon keep each camera in it's lineup before its replaced?

Completely conjectural and drawing off of past trends, but the Rebel xxxDs look like a year, xxDs to be a year and a half, xDs to be two years, 1d/s to be a year and a half to two years.

Sounds like the 5Dii is due to be replaced quite soon then.

I dunno, I'm really thinking about canceling the order for it and going back to the 7D. The AF system and FPS just wipes the floor with the 5Dii, and by the time the 5Diii (or whatever it's called) comes out the camera won't have depreciated as much. And since the D700 is basically a 5Dii that trades video for better AF, it wouldn't surprise me if the next 5D is basically just a full frame 7D so that they can one-up Nikon with it.

Canon wouldn't do that with the next 5D since it would effect 1Ds sales.

I'd wait for the 5D refresh to come out, in all honesty. The 5D Mk II is a fantastic camera, but it's still a $2k+ investment, and seeing as how the Mk II is nearing the lifespan of the Mk I, I'd wait. Besides, as you've said the 7D is still a fantastic camera and there's no real need to upgrade right now.

@Marin: Personally, I don't think it'd matter as much. It didn't stop Canon with the t2i though. It did compete heavily with the 50D when released.

The 5D series so far hasn't had a high-end AF system, so I wouldn't be surprised if the successor is the same. They might add a few more selectable AF points and maybe go to all cross-type, but I doubt it will be as good as even the 7D.

It all depends on what you will shoot. I had the 7D and it's AF system is pretty darn good, but at the end of the day, I wasn't blown away by its high ISO performance (hell, even low ISO had some noise), not to mention a problem with maze patterns in RAW shots.

Have you received the 5DII yet? If not, you should at least give it a shot. That sensor is just amazing.

This is true, unless they update that one too. That one's even older.

Yeah. I really want full frame, shooting is so much easier with it IMO. But it just doesn't make sense to get it right now.

And if the 7D has depreciated a lot by the time the 5Dii refresh comes out, I could always just keep it as a second body.

Even if it did depreciate, I'd assume it'd still go somewhere close to $1000, or at least in the upper hundreds. It's not close to where it would be new, but it's still a very significant chunk of money (and enough for an L-lens).
