EOS Bodies / Re: 6D MKII
« on: August 28, 2014, 12:17:39 AM »
It would be a much more attractive option if it had the joystick for focus point selection. I honestly like a lot of what the current 6D offers.

Personally, I'd say a joystick for 11 af points (10 non-crosspoint, one only crosspoint at f4+) is overkill - these few points are selected quickly with the multicontroller. Coming from the 60d, I feel very at home with the right-hand only layout of the 6d.

If you’re coming from a camera that has never had the joystick I could see the comfort in not having one. But for shooting canons for years that all had joysticks it’s extremely frustrating at times.

I have to be truly honest. I just got a 1DX about 6 months ago to replace my old beaten down 5dMK3 and I cannot honestly think of anything else I could want from a camera. It has great AF, great low light capabilities, excellent ISO quality. What else is there that you "HAVE" to have? To me nothing. I understand we will always want more in life but for me I have to say I am truly happy with my 1DX. Just my opinion of course, I know most feel differently.


Highly recommended on phottix odin.Avoid pockwizard flex tt5 at all cost.

Whats wrong with Flex TT5 and Flex Mini? I have ben using mine with my 5DMK3 with no issues at all, all the way up to 1/8000th. They work seamlessly at every event. They do take a bit of time to learn how to properly use them but once you do they are amazing. We shoot with a 600ex on camera and 3 430EXII's off camera all shooting e-ttl.

My 7D had a world of problems with my 50L and 70-200 2.8II I previously owned. I went crazy trying to figure out the issue. Ended up sending it to Canon a few times with all my lenses to get it sorted out. Good luck and hope it works out :)

My paint on my battery grip is wearing off on my 5DMK3  >:(

According to Canon (sent it in 2 weeks ago) its considered normal wear and tear and is not covered by warranty. Glad I pay $500.00 a year for tha CPS membership  :o

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Ideal choice for second body?
« on: October 06, 2012, 12:25:30 AM »
Hey everyone! I am on the hunt for a second body and I am unsure of what will be the best for the money. I currently shoot a 5DMK3 and have a 40D as a second/spare. I shoot weddings 99% of the time. Here are my options I am looking into:

Possibly a 60D since they are dirt cheap :-\

Im really leaning towards the 1DMKIII but I would like everyones input as well before making the decision. Thanks!

EOS Bodies / Re: POLL: With what features would you consider the 6d?

Another feature I would consider is it being available just as fast as the Nikon D600 is. My local shop already has them in stock.
