Had my 6D for approx 2 days before I went to Finland to the Taiga forest on the Russian border in July- the high ISO is great on the 6D. I started off with the 7D on my 100-400 but switched to the 6D to give it a try out. These are all with the 6D + 100-400L

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7D II or 6D
« on: September 15, 2014, 05:16:13 PM »
I have recently upgraded from a 5D to a 6D - I was going to wait for the 7DII but required hi iso for a bear watching trip in Finland. I used the 6D all the time instead of my 7D. Wow was blown away by the high ISO and IQ. I will probably get a 7DII eventually but the full frame 6D is amazing. The image quality is tip top did some photos of my brother in laws wedding with it again cannot fault it. Im keeping my 7D for now.

I would get a 6D and use it as a companion for your other camera.

Software & Accessories / Re: Any NAS Experts? quick question

Hi work in storage myself, and have had many NAS boxes.

I currently have a Readynas Pro 6 bay box.

The easiest way to send traffic to and from your NAS over the ethernet cable is to setup private ethernet network that has a different IP range so static to the WIFI on your router.

Get a router with gigabit ports and obviously your laptop and NAS have gigabit ports as well. Setup a private network say laptop is and NAS box is , setup a subnet of

I am assuming you are a windows user, so I would edit your host file in the windows\system32\drivers\etc folder and put in the name of the NAS box and its IP address. That way the laptop will know straight away where to look for the NAS box. This is due to your router using DHCP and normally the ip range is 192.168.x.x

This way all your internet traffic will go through wifi and you will have a private network through to you NAS box which also isolates it so you must remember your IP address range.

I have used this option in the past and has worked quite well

Have you considered a 5D Classic?

Its full frame like the 6D solid build. I had the 40D, best camera I have had, I traded to a 5Dc as the  images off it are excellent and you can pick those up for a low price as well.

It allows you to install it on 2 machines. There are other free software plugins on their site as well.

cheers guys


Got sent this by one of my friends it looks great for free

works with all adobe lightroom, photoshop, photoshop elements and apple apperture or standalone

cant pass this up for free ;D



Software & Accessories / JPEG repair software Recommendations

Hi All,

Have a family member who I reminded to backup their photos on their laptop and 3 days later their 10 year old soon decided to use the system recovery tool on their laptop. They managed to swith it off before it kicked in however I got the hard drive and ran the kingston drive recovery software to recover all the files so currently I have 130,000+ jpegs a mixture of internet cache and photos taken with different cameras etc.

Anyway my question is does anyone know of any decent jpeg repair software as quite a few of the jpegs have the right thumbnails but are showing up as corrupted when opened. Its a long shot but its of them and their family over the last 10 years and I think they have learned their lesson the hard way

thanks in advance

I have 7d as main body and got a 5d for landscapes and backup body. Nothing wrong with it. If you have full frame lenses its a good thing to have if you have mainly EF-S crop lenses then you are limited in its use.

For that money its worth a gamble.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Buying from overseas: An experience.

Just got a sigma 18-50  f2.8-4 for use with my t2i (550d) for when girlfriends son wants to use it, as  cheapest in uk was £165 I got it for £110 delivered from Digital Rev. This was delivered by courier but I picked up from Royal Mail collection office - no duty paid at all by myself. They also supply a supposed 12 month local warranty which I hope I never have to use.

Im off to the states and thought about buying a 6D from over there, but from Dig rev its £1159 its crazy that in UK i will pay over £1500 for a 6D, I could get a 6D and 24-105 for not much more.

looking at the price of the 70D £1059 for a body in the UK and $1199 in the USA a saving of around £250 on the uk price. Assuming  you go to US on holiday.

I don think buying from over seas hurts the main camera dealers but the big online retailers such as amazon.

still alive
