    Though I think it should be noted that we've traded jello for cigarettes with the 7D.

    This is a compressed vimeo clip, just something to keep in mind. It was compressed to HDV. Just saying that because any serious conclusions and pixelpeeping are kind of useless if you're not looking at the original footage. Not saying highlights aren't clipped, but without native clips and even a look at settings you might be making some incorrect assumptions.

    It's there, but to such a small extent that I don't care about it. You can see a little in the roller coaster shot, and on the yellow fence near the end as the ride whirls past it (like we care). The only place where the CMOS was noticeable in a geek way was around 2:25 with the out-of focus blinking lights, a few of them lose the round shape because their frequency is close to that of the sensor scan. On the other hand I only noticed this by stepping through the individual frames, watching it in motion wasn't disturbing to me.

    I'm taking a flying lesson next week, so if Canon wants to send me an early model I'll be happy to photograph the propeller

    What a great piece... and no grading or additional lights used! Simply awesome. I'm assuming the 'punch' in the piece was due to dialed-up in-camera settings. Great stuff. Though I would really like to get my hands on some raw footage with 'flat' settings to play around with.

    ok here is what I mean when I say that I feel the 7d clips or overexposes quite easy
    look at these 3 pictures






    to me it feels that the cam did not provide any type of highlight protection, or rolloff, kinda what the knee function does on the panny cams, on my hpx or hmc
    I could see these shots clipping gradually, maybe I am wrong, maybe Barry can shine in on the subject and just tell me I am crazy and just put my crazy thoughts to rest, I have two d7's on pre-order by the way

    I understand we dont have a full quality original file, but these shots are obviously clipped

    I agree - classic small sensor stuff - the most important feature is how it transits to clipped

    Seeing white is fine, seeing flouro colours as you transition to white is bad news

    but..

    -The operator probably over exposed
    -Shooting midday is a nightmare on any digital device

    Still i think the framerate has it so still a good cam but not a keeper

    If the standard setting on the 7d is anything like the 5d, we really need to wait until someone calibrates one until we talk about highlight clipping. Picture Style editor is beautiful.
