Thanks Richard, That's more or less the way I have been looking at things. Have my name down for a 7d 'B Class' with Calumet which is basically a demonstration model used by sales staff for demonstrations but is then refurbished and guaranteed by Canon.
Mike and Oisin.
I shoot with two DSLR cameras and have always shot with different models of Canon cameras. I used a 30D and a 40D, then upgraded to a 7D and still used my 7D. I finally bit the bullet regarding the 7D and purchased a second model of that camera. For the first time I am shooting with two identical cameras which makes things a lot more simple; both use the same batteries etc....
I decided to get the second 7D (both were purchased as Canon refurbished units and thus were less expensive) because the way that Canon is evolving towards video capabilities, I fully expect the 7D II or what ever it is called to be a better video camera at the expense of still capabilities.
So while others are waiting for the 7D II to come along, I am happily shooting with my 7D cameras. The nice thing is that, contrary to some opinions, a camera doesn't cease functioning as soon as a new model is introduced. Even if the 7D II is the best thing since sliced bread, the 7D will still be a darn good camera.
I've been waiting on a 7d as well. Could buy now but would be gutted if the 7d mark 2 is announced for release in 2014. Frustrated!
Welcome to the group, SC. I love the article and it comes to my mind often when reading these camera blogs... and I smile every time.
I just joined the group, and after reading the 'Hammer blog' and being a genuine carpenters son, I found the article hilarious. I've printed it out to show him next visit. He'll probably need medical help from the stitches caused from the oncoming laughs he'll have reading it.
Great carpenter analogy thanks for posting, I've shared with some friends and they enjoyed it too!
BTW: I actually bought a custom hammer... I developed a "trigger finger" due to a lot of hammering while doing some roofing. The hammer has a tuning fork inside the handle which absorbs the vibration of driving in the nails. It works great!
GREAT SHOT ASHTON!
Hammer Blog was funny! Thanks for posting it.
"Banger: A real carpenter could have done that with rusty wire and a rock. It’s not about the equipment, it’s about the carpenter." LOL!
Here, Richard.. check this out! Hammer Blog
