With the Canon 7D being discontinued and the imminent announcement of the 7Dii in the next few weeks, I thought I would share some initial thoughts as well as announce our plans for a Canon 7Dii Tutorial Training Video DVD. The Original 7D Crash Course is one of our very best sellers, so if you are planning on this camera, just know it is coming very soon, probably should finish around the end of September as we are still working on the Sony A7s DVD now.
- 10 FPS will probably require a new battery.
- 65 Focus Points all cross type sound phenomenal
- Headphone Jack is wayyyyyy past due
- 1080 60 fps is decent, but also way past due.
- I would love to know more about the sensor, what fine detail means, heck even what size it is. The Nikon D750 is full frame and it sounds like these two are going to be released around the same time.
- I also understand the body is completely metal and very strong, and weather sealed.
The fact that there is no touch screen, no wifi, no GPS, and especially no 4K is disappointing. Canon is going to lose videography customers in droves without the 4K option. Maybe they have plans for a firmware update, but until they address this, it is just crazy to me that they and Nikon would release new DSLRs without it. Panasonic is going to be raking in new sales with the GH4
Sam Byford is a reporter for The Verge and is currently working and living in Tokyo. He's a gadget enthusiast and a photographer. He poses an interesting question; with the undisputed greatness of the iPhone 5S camera, is it time to get rid of expensive high-end cameras? And/or is it worth it to fork over the money for a new DSLR?
He tested both cameras in varied light conditions. He used side-by-side comparison photos, using a slider to show the differences, to compare their performance. To check out what he learned and read some of his insights check out the article HERE.

A new trend hitting the wedding photography scene is dramatic and often comical wedding photos. Using a heavy amount of Photoshop the wedding parties are being inserted into crazy fantasy and sci-fi type situations. It's actually pretty cool.
One such photographer is Shane Elliott of Studio Louisville. He posed a group of groomsmen so he could later edit them into crazy scenarios such as riding the high seas and exploding concrete. It seems like a lot of fun and the pictures are great.

What would think is the most honest city in America? According to the study we're actually a very honest nation overall. 95% of people across the country chose to be honest and pay $1 for tea at a stand setup in hopes people would use the "honor system". But which city was 100% honest.....Honolulu Hawaii (for the second year in a row)!
With all the awful stuff we see in the news and the general feeling that people are progressively getting worse, it's nice to see statistics like this. You can check out the entire article on USA Today with a cool info graphic showing just how honest we are. :)
Nobumichi Asai and his CGI team transform a model's face with "electronic makeup" using real-time face tracking and projection mapping. It's incredibly interesting but at the same time somewhat unsettling. Nevertheless it's hard to take your eyes off it.
In America one of the biggest stigma's is living in a trailer park (also called a manufactured home community). We joke about it. We look down on it. We think we're better than it. At the end of the day they're just normal American's like anybody else trying to get by in life. They have interesting stories to tell. Photographer David Waldorf has invested time in their community, gained their trust, and offers us beautifully intimate portraits of their daily lives.
David is highly successful commercial photographer shooting everything from prints in magazines to celebrities. You can check out his portfolio here.
In this incredibly interesting video, that has gone viral across the internet, shows the powerful damage the sun can do. In the first sequence people are startled by the way their skin looks under UV light. The photographer Tom Leveritt then offers the subjects some sunscreen. The results are really fascinating. You might think twice about stepping out without it today. Check it out below.
