    The features are quite good. I'm liking the 61 AF and the increased ISO levels. At the end of the day, it all comes down to the lens you use. You can't really take good photos or good video if you're using an average lens.

    You're right. Its essentially the best of both worlds when it comes to the 5D Mk. II and the 7D.

    Hmm...

    OK, mine would be a 4K camera (pretty much 4x the resolution as HD, similar to the Red Epic).

    It would take Canon mount lenses and have a built-in ND filter system.

    It would have excellent low light sensitivity (like the 5DmkIII).

    Instead of memory cards, its primary way of storing things would be a SSD drive (with additional memory card slot for photos) and no file length limitations.

    The video would be full spec 4:2:2 instead of Canon's 4:2:0 colourspace.

    Frame rates would go up to 120fps at full 4K size and 480fps at SD widescreen just so you can do ultra slow motion footage, although at the expense of resolution - gotta be realistic here, getting a 4K or even a HD camera to do 480fps is pretty insane.

    It would have a shotgun condenser mic as standard but also accept stereo XLR jacks. It would have headphones out and professional audio metering.

    It would come with a mounting kit to allow it to either function as a still camera without all of the brackets and fit comfortably into your hand, or as part of the kit with industry standard rail mounts that connect into tripods, shoulder mount kits, dollies, etc.

    It would come with an extended battery by default but also have an option for power to be fed in from an external battery pack.

    It would have full 1080p HDMI output with automatic downscaling for 2K/4K resolution, and upscaling for 720p/SD footage. The HDMI out would be full 4:2:2.

    Ultimately I'd see it similar to a 5DmkIII on its own, but snapping into a larger, more video camera like assembly that adds things like the extended battery, SSD, XLR inputs, etc. hooked into the main body via a multi-in connector, and this extra assembly would have all of the rail mounts, etc. That way you have the best of both worlds - a great ergonomic still camera, and a professional grade video camera.

    And most of all, I would like this for under $10,000.

    .... I'm dreamin' ;)

    There are other archive databases you can use to store and display your images online. I use Flickr and have no issues with it. Bare in mind, you will need to pay a yearly fee (roughly $30 US) to use the servers of whoever you choose. Every database will have different fees with more or the same options.

    If you already have a preexisting blog, you can have a Flickr feed which automatically uploads the images to your site without you having to do it. Think of it as an image version of an RSS feed.

    I'm unfamiliar with the other online databases, but perhaps try Tumblr. Using these databases are a lot cheaper than creating a website from scratch, paying hosting fees, buying a domain etc.

    We actually had no lighting tech for either show, so that was a little frustrating. But at least we had a foldback tech for Melbourne - Sydney, we had the one guy and major onstage tech dramas 10 minutes before we went on (faulty wiring in one of the venue's stage boxes it seems) so that was interesting to say the least.

    The joys of being in a band. haha

    You guys did really well in Melbourne. The crowd seemed very pleased to see LORD back after the ridiculous hiatus/break. Its been way to long. Hopefully will see more of LORD in Melbourne soon.

    It will be good to photograph you gents in Europe. I'm looking forward to that.

    Elements is meant to be a bit more user friendly than other versions of Photoshop, isn't it?

    It's a little "dumbed down" compared to the full version, but that doesn't mean it's not an extremely powerful tool. If you're new to digital manipulation, it's a great entry level product to get started and since it's based on the full version, it's a great introduction if you want to progress to using all of the pro features.
