    Filters are like a tinted glass. I could live on a beach and take photos then impress the lumpen. Christ, what a waste.

    Can't think why I would waste my time replying to someone like you except to expose you for the ignoramus that you are. You make your comments without knowing anything about me, my abilities or my camera. I work as a portrait photographer, not taking sunsets, I have 5 SLR camera's and the only one I have a problem with is the Canon 7D. It might just be I picked up a dud.

    I love my 7D, learned to take pictures to extreme (low light nightphotogs, fast moving formula 1 cars, etc)
    Upgraded to the mkIII but still remain loyal to my 7D. 😀

    Thank you Subzero, this was touted to be the low light speciality camera. Most cheapo camera's will work in bright sunlight.
    Around 1000 pictures were taken over a few days (Portraits) half with Nikon and the other half was meant to be with the Canon. The Canon pictures progressively went brown. It is highly likely the camera has a fault.
    Sorry you do not know what blurry-grainy pictures look like, I have plenty here to show you.

    What do you mean the camera produces blurry and grainy images?

    Set your shutter speed to 1200, ISO to 100, file size to SRAW, go out on a nice sunny day and take a photo of the anything. If your gear is in working order then there is no explanation as to why the 7D wont produce a razor sharp quality image with correct colours.

    Nikon's produces fake pastel colours that look rubbish.

    For the record and the detractors out there, I set my Canon 7D and my Nikon D7000 side by side set up on "Manual" with the same external flashes and photographing the same group of 100 people in a darkish hall.
    For the same picture exposure:- Nikon ISO 200, shutter 1/100, F4.2, with a 18-105 lens. Canon 7D ISO 250, Shutter 1/100, F4.5. with a 18-135 lens. The canon required slightly more light, with a bigger ISO, produced the less sharp pictures particularly around the edges.

    Yes this is the trend subzero, I have found this camera unusable so I am the problem.
    The Nikon D7000 is an awful camera to use with an instruction book 340 pages long, however it is consistent and reliable.
    If it is so good why does it produce blurry grainy pictures? No answers?
    You know nothing about my abilities.
    Your own statements don't ring true.
    I would sell this camera on Ebay but don't want to lose my good rating by selling a lemon.

    …. Ok Allen Smith, clearly you have no idea about how to use a camera in a low light situation. I own a Canon 7D and from my experiences it is an exceptional tool for use in all situations, especially seeing as I push my camera to its limits photographing motorsport, portraiture, night club/event, on camera flash off camera flash shoots. Not to mention the auto focusing system is utterly exceptional. Clearly you're a case of all the gear and no idea.

    Thank you Eugene for your condescending and patronising comments when you know nothing of my abilities or work routine. This comes from a person that photographs sunsets just like every other amateur photographer.
    Do you have an association with Canon cameras?
    The 7D is a beautiful Camera to use unlike the Nikon D7000. The Nikon produces beautiful consistent pictures.
    Much has been written about the blurry grainy pictures, as a self professed expert perhaps you could come up with some answers.

    What a joke photographing sunrises, how original. As for Canon I regretfully bought a 7D which I describe a a beautiful camera with lousy pictures. Most are blurry and grainy and it hates low light. Don't take a portrait without a flash, you will end up with a brown person. Not me, the Sony and Nikon have no such problems. Big waste of money.

    Hey there, it looks like the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM to us. Cheers: canon.com.au/For-You/Camera-Lenses/EF300mm-f28L-IS-II-USM-Lens

    Wow, there's some jealous people beating their egotistical chests on here huh? Unlike you "pros", I have absolutely no idea about f stops, grads, different angles etc.. which makes this vid perfect for the amateur. Why dont you take your sunny dispositions to the advanced classes?

    @thegorn Thanks for your comment. This video was part of our EOS Photo 5 competition encouraging would-be contestants to challenge themselves in their photography. We did not want to stifle creativity by giving a "tutorial" per se, but angled this video more on inspiring people to explore photography for themselves.

    Thanks again for your comment. Hope you enjoy our other videos.

    Cheers,
    The Canon team

    Google: b&h photo video

    And click on the underwater equipment tab. They have many professional underwater housings for 7D. Lights, filters too.

    Sorry Canon but you've failed and wasted 5 minutes of my life. Dictionary definition "a tutorial seeks to teach by example…" To teach by example would be to have "Euge" down on the beach actually shooting.

    Instead you've created a polished, sanitised and dumbed-down production of someone in a studio giving obvious "tips" with no real insight. Use a grad? Duh! Large F to get everything in focus? Duh! Try diff angles? Duh!

    It was a thinly-disguised cross-promo of the guy's website wasn't it?
