Did this video help you?

Zamani Feelings: Thanks Tony, love how informative and knowledgable you are about the technical side of these things. I posted a question concerning the crop factor that I wanted your opinion on. As you know Nikon offers an in camera crop mode in their full frame cameras. I wanted to know if using this crop mode automatically changes the f-stop and depth of field in the same way that shooting with a crop sensor Canon camera would be? In other words, if Im shooting with a 200mm f2 on a D800 and switch to DX mode, does that still give me an F2 or would I have to multiple that by the crop factor ?

Stefan Husa: Tony, I couldn't find a review of the Canon eos 1dx, any thoughts of this camera for a professional wildlife photography quality? I'm thinking of purchasing a quality dslr camera, I'm going to need it for biology studies and why not combine my studies with my hobby. So do you think the 1dx is the best camera for wildlife photography or do you recommend something else?

Zamani Feelings: Tony, any thoughts on the common complaints concerning the 7d's images being soft in camera?

Strengthoftenmen: Tony. Thank you. I am now the proud owner of a used 7D from ebay and a 400mm f/5.6. Some of the wildlife images I've taken already with this camera and lens have been brilliant. Once again. Thank you :)

Ryan McG: will you review the pentax k-3 ever, or do you in your book ?

randomrazr: torn between a nikon d610 or a canon 70D

Jeff Masotti: Good review bought my GF your book she loves it and watches your videos all the time she's a beginner and says your explain things better than most photographers on YouTube. 

Grudge Runs: Dont know if any body has commented and said this but there is audio levels on the 70D.

Danny Diet: What camera and lens do you suggest for shooting my son taking tennis lessons? Ty

bigtalo26: My new teacher!! Thank you...

Bungle2010: Tony, you can get the audio levels to come up on the 70D during video recording by pressing the "Info" button.

Scott R: I bought the cheapest sony SLT model, A58 specifically for video and I am REALLY impressed by it. It does away with one of the problems you experienced with the 70D, which was not being able to hold it to your eye during video. With the EVF, you can use it to your eye while capturing video, which gives you another point of stability too. The autofocus system is also SUPERB. Built-in stabilization (camera, not lens) is also really nice and functions beautifully for video as well as photos. The A58 is no match for my D7100 in terms of photography though. The low light performance is barely adequate on the A58 and you lose 1/3rd of a stop of light due to the translucent mirror. However, in bright, daylight situations, I haven't had any problems at all with it for either photography or videography. It's useless at night though, for video and even somewhat for photography, because you can't really see anything through the EVF or LCD, it just becomes horribly pixelated and nasty, so I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who shoots in darker conditions (I'd hate to use it for weddings, I think). It does have this auto twilight feature that takes insanely clean photographs at 6400 ISO...I'm talking better than my D7100, but it doesn't work at all on moving subjects. What it does is it takes 4 or 5 pictures, averages the noise out of them and presents you with a single picture and I was frankly a bit stunned by the quality, considering how hideous it looks at 6400 WITHOUT using that feature. That being said, I don't think the quality is equivalent to the 70D, as it only offers 24p at 24mbps, long GOP recording, or 28mbps at 60i (ew). The new A77 II has an even better focusing system though, 79 AF points which cover a large part of the screen, so you might want to give it a try for tracking birds. It also has a new way of focusing, it allows you to pick a point, but then it will also use the points around that chosen one to follow the focus. Gary Fong has a demo of it on his youtube page and it looks really impressive. It works beautifully for soccer photos and video. He told it to track his daughter's face and even though his son was moving back and forth in the frame, in front of her, it never lost focus on her face until she turned around, but when she turned facing the camera, it started tracking her again, it was really amazing. That may be precisely what you're looking for in terms of your daughter's soccer photography/videography since it can learn and track individual faces (not sure how accurate it would be during sporting events, but it might be worth a try if you can get your hands on the new A77 II when it comes out in the US on the 20th). 

roskildelaca: I like this guy. He's cool.

PIXYBASHER: Superb video as per usual. Thank you.

Avinash Balakrishnan: This is one of your finest videos ! :) I have just one doubt though, Will I be getting the same amount of shots on Sandisk extreme pro (95MBps) and on Sandisk Extreme (45MBps) , and just that the former would clear the buffer faster before firing the next series of shots ? Sometimes, I just might go for the komputer bay card you recomended, but there are reviews reporting, it failed/stopped working after sometime....

Oliver Leu: Hi Tony, thank you very much for delivering that high quality info. I have some issues according focus accuracy with the 700d and my question is: Would it be worth to upgrade to a 70d - specially for moving objects. The goal is to get Tack Sharp images as much as possible, what isn't the case at the moment with the 700d.

That Canon Guy: 7D and 1D X and i really love both cameras !

Nicholas Buenk: Interesting. Could you perhaps do a video on 5D Mark III with a 2x Extender verses a 7D? I am interested to see the image quality of full frame + Extender verses the image quality of a crop camera. I'm estimating it should be about the same seeing as you lose full frames nose advantage due to the 2 stops lower aperture and you also lose full frames sharpness advantage, but it would be nice to see it tested.

Billy Silver: Why are you wearing that in your studio? You are hardly going to catch anything! Great comparison.

Evan Basson: Great Review,Sound and solid advice..thank you so much

atul jain: have u ever tried any fluid head for 500 mm plus 7d...not talking/asking about gimbal..

Marcos Perboni: Por favor onde está o reviw do seu livro?

RANAGRAFICA MEDIARANAFILM: good

Peter Aitken: This is a great review, thanks for it. I may have missed it but did you test and try out the wifi feature on the 70D. I have had a little play with it and using it for remote shooting but I really loved it to see my pictures on a different screen straight away. Not ideal for rapid shooting but I thought it was an interesting addition.

fadi zain: YOU'RE SOOOOOOOO BORING 

Phương Lan Camera - Hạ Long: Hello everyone 

Allan jere: thanks Tony for your reply... since my question I have purchase both your book and (my first dslr)70D in October, i loved the 18-55mmSTM that I traded it in for an 18-135mm STM, brilliant video. I have actually found myself enjoying photography more and doing a lot of night shots always in raw... and mostly in manual. I am now thinking of a competitive full frame addition, I am drawn to the 5D3...

Daniel Martin: Would love to see the Pentax K-3 in this review, Great job btw!

Talli Jamir: Amazing lesson for people like me i just love everything about you said of course i still don,t know what i will buy but for now i,m extremely satisfied with your teaching. 

Mitchell Moss: they still only resolve about 1/3rd of the 20 megapixels thanks to bayer interpolation

Geoff Maxwell: Tony: When you talk about buffering your bursts to your memory card, are you RAW only? or RAW+jpg? I shoot RAW + lowest quality JPG. If I had the CF take care of the RAW, would my jpg to SD on my 5D3 result in reduced buffer? I shoot JPG for easy sharing for family/friends who want to see them all and don't have Lightroom. Cheers.

Cihan Boztarla: Its great comparison video thanks for making it so clear. I got 70D primarily for video capabilities. I will spend my time %70 for video and %30 for sport photos. I want to get a telephoto lens for shooting videos and sport photos and was checking Tamron 70-200 by your recommendation. I want to get IS since I am going to shoot videos as well but wanted to ask if that lens is good enough for shooting videos. I heard 18.135 kit lens is great but I may need little bit more zoom so looking for some alternatives. both videos and stills will be shot in daylight. +Tony Northrup 

ashfaque a: which one is better nikon d7100 or canon 70d

Vladimir Byazrov: Great review. Thank you!

Alex Toty: 7 D .

darkcashyz: 70D does have an on-screen audio monitor feature even when shooting.

Ben Gomes Photography: u seem to like to overexpose ur video lol

Thomas Herriman: Great review! I'm no pro and probably out of my league posting my comments below, but.. If I melt what I know with what I take from your review, here is what I get: 70D vs 7D -1 fps (rated) + 2 million pixels View finder level Touch screen Articulating view screen. Less expensive memory (at same capacity and speed) and greater availability. WIFI Comparing the 5D Mk III is okay, but I find it unfair or at the least, incomplete. What happens if you compare detail and noise at the same crop factors? I suspect that if you crop the Mk III equally, then you'd find the 7's to be equal or better. I recently read something that agrees with what I think about the APC vs. Full Frame: if you want more in your frame, then step back or use a wider lens. Why push the frame to the edges of the sensor only to crop it later? I would be interested in seeing a low light comparison as the Mk III seems to be the standard among Canon shooters and has even converted several Nikon night shooters. I have been drooling over it since it was released, but from what I am experiencing with my new 70D... well I need to see the difference in results to be fair. I find the touch screen and menus to be very easy to use and intuitively designed. The only time I get confused is in the wifi setup because they didn't layer it exactly the same as the others. A note about the wifi bonus: I have used 2 apps to control my 70D and it is a JOY to not have that cord or a limited distance FOV remote control. It is also a wonderful advantage to be able to review the images on my phone (or tablet if I had one) immediately even while the next frame is being captured. I was able to walk 60 feet away and still have full control. The apps provide an enormous range of control and flexibility over the camera without ever having to touch it. I can set up my camera where I want it, take a seat on a bench or in a camping chair and start shooting. I can even manually focus without touching the lens! Tom

ayee cnt: perfect video cheers

Dennis Morgan: Great video! Didn't think I'd watch it all but it was very interesting and thorough. New subscriber.

Pierre Augustin: Blablabla and zzzzzzz... --"

Rene Stanneveld: Must be me but my 70d has nice db meters while i make video. Can even adjust them.

Nazareth434: I don't understand how when comparing 5d3 to 70d how the 70d can 'have more detail' yet be quite a bit mushier looking- it looked to me like the 5d had sharper lines, deeper depth to the crinkles in the orange fabric of the bear whereas the 7-0d lost the depth because of the mushiness? I shoot a 7D and a 1DX and my 7D shots just look like much- almost like a watercolor- something I've always hated about the 7d- the photos are ok before cropping, but any cropping really mushes the photo with the 7d it seems to me- and anything above 400 iso really begins to much the photos too it seems- my 1DX can really crank the iso and retain a lot of detail it seems? And why do you wear camo? I can't see you I n the video- I hear the voice, but it appears to be coming from the camera o n the tripod- can't see you- wave a flag or something to let people know where you are I n the video I agree- touch screen isn't very intuitive or comfortable- I shoot through the viewfinder and it seemsm uch easier ot me- but I do like liveview when camera is on tripod and I'm setting up a landscape shot- I would have loved an articulating screen though which my 7d lacks when shooting down really low- too awkward trying to get yourself low enough to see the live view screen- articulating screen would have been VERY welcome- not sure why more camera manufacturers don't offer this- maybe because of the possibility of busting it off accidently?

Guy Appino: Cranking out a 40min video isn't easy and requires hours upon hours of work! Deepest appreciation for all the time, effort, and straightforward feedback in a clear and articulate manner regarding the evaluation of these 3 cameras and stringing it all together. It goes a long way into helping me make a educated informed decision! Thank you.

ooDriveoo: lol, I have to admit I was a bit frustrated to see the face of the speaker so long at the beginning (I wanted to see more camera action demonstrations), but there is something about his articulation and body language that makes the video bearable. Interesting views, Here are a couple of remarks about the 70D: 1- Contrary to what you said in the video (27:20), you can actually display the audio level bars when you set the audio audio level adjust feature to manual. I believe it should be possible to display it as well in auto audio level but I would have to check. 2- I have found that the best way to do hand-held video, while taking advantage of the tap-focus through the touchscreen (without feeling like you have motor-skill issues), is to hold with your left hand the flipped-out touchscreen. In this way, you can focus with your left-hand thumb while holding the lens with the right hand (extra possibility of manual zoom). 

tietanus: i've watched this for forty minutes and i'm not even into camera's 

InfinityNERDS: I found the camera, thought it was your arm for half the video.

Greg R: nice video! I was surprised to be still watching it 35min later especially with that shirt/hat combo :P and yeah, I actually bought a used 7D yesterday on eBay, for $750. should work well with the 300/4L IS, but I might start looking at even longer lenses. too bad that past 400mm the price goes through the roof.
