Canon 7D II & 70D – Rumors

At last some updates for the Canon 7D, for me the 7D has been my favorite camera/DSLR period. Its simple enough that I can use it and complex enough that it can do so much. I especially love its video recording features and I hope they have upgraded it for this time around. There are two updates one is for the Canon 70D and the other is the 7D Mark II. I hope the changes for the 7D Mark II are so much that it makes it worth it for me to upgrade. I have had my camera since Dec of 2009 and I still think its fantastic, I just want more for the video features and I hope they deliver on it. For now these are just a few rumors, I’m hoping for more news soon, come on Canon make us happy.

Full Lensbaby Kit

LensBaby

I have about four to five lenses in my current kit and I use about two to three most of the time, and I have been reading about Lensbaby lenses for some time now, they are not as expensive but come out with some very trippy photographs, sort of like an insant Instagram filt built into a real DSLR camera. There are several Lenses to choose from and they range from $150 up to $450 depending on the effect that you are looking for, and now they have put together a kit of everything they have which seems extremely tempting. Even though the is on the high side I have always been tempted to try out one of their lenses and after watching the youtube video I might pick up a lens, but if you are looking for the whole kit this is the perfect package.

The Lensbaby Movie Maker’s Kit is designed for Canon DSLRs (like the 5D MKII, 60D, T2i, etc…) and Arri PL movie cameras, with an array of optic adapters that can create trippy-looking fisheye, wide angle and soft-focus effects, among others. The whole thing will cost you $2900, but it might help you further your craft.
