Hi All,

It looks like both Canon and Nikon are bringing out new models that could appeal to birders!

First and just a rumour is that Canon might announce a replacement to their 7D (APS-C) which might have up to 10FPS, 20MP and a high ISO capability called the 7D Mark II?

Secondly Nikon has already announced a new D750 Full Frame camera which has 24MP and can shoot up to 100 frames at 6.5FPS. This is only the second camera on the market after the Pentax K3 that can shoot in light as dark as -3EV!

I reckon this new Nikon is going to be a really good camera for those that cannot afford to spend US$6000 on the D4s or Canon 1DX as the rumoured price will be around US$2000.

Cheers,
Gordon

The exciting news from Photokina is that both the Canon and Nikon cameras have now been announced!

The specifications on the Nikon make this a very interesting looking Full Frame camera for birders, take a look here at the product page on B&H Photo Video: [url=http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1082604-REG/nikon_d750_dslr_camera_with.html/BI/1342/KBID/1769/kw/NID75024120/DFF/d10-v2-t1-xNID75024120:1vxpo4ma]Nikon D750[/url:1vxpo4ma]

The new Canon EOS 7D mark II looks even more amazing with 65AF points, 10FPS, 20MP and a buffer up to 31 FPS using burst mode. The AF module in this camera has been updated to be slightly better than the one found in the 1DX in terms of low light shooting and can now handle down to -3EV to match the Pentax K3!
You can also join me drooling at the B&H Photo Video site looking at those specifications!

I believe there may be a super telephoto zoom lens announcement at the show but lets wait and see?

Some pretty exciting new products for birders! <!-- s:bouncy: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bouncy.gif" alt=":bouncy:" title="Enthusiastic" /><!-- s:bouncy: --> <!-- s:bouncy: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bouncy.gif" alt=":bouncy:" title="Enthusiastic" /><!-- s:bouncy: --> <!-- s:bouncy: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bouncy.gif" alt=":bouncy:" title="Enthusiastic" /><!-- s:bouncy: -->

Wow! <!-- s:shocking: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/shocking.gif" alt=":shocking:" title="Shocking" /><!-- s:shocking: -->

These cameras look amazing for the price!

I remember only a few years back you would have been paying a small fortune to have features like this!!

Have a look at the Canon 1DXii and 7Dmkii plus the Nikon D5 and D500, they're Full Frame and APSC versions from each manufacturer that will make bird photography a lot easier. Should add I mean birds moving around quickly in low light where you need good tracking AF.

A cheaper alternative in full frame is the Pentax K1 and the K3ii for APSC format...
