Learning my way round my new 6D. Played with driving it from my phone - for a scary self portrait see

The wireless control is pretty basic but works well enough. Strikes me that it opens up all sorts of opportunities for programmers to create things like an Intervalometer app.

I see that intervalometers are already available: but I guess as software it'd be one less thing to carry, as long as you have your phone with you.

What other possibilities are there?
  • Crazy slow but steady change in zoom for weird fireworks type shots?
  • Photo stacking at multiple focus distances?
    (Yes the stacking would be done in post processing)
  • Other?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Having fun with 6D from 1000D
« on: January 28, 2013, 02:15:23 AM »
Bought myself a mid-life crisis 6D & 24-105 lens having had a 1000D for 4 years. Having fun exploring. Exciting and also - wow - lots more options to think about when composing & shooting.

Having spent the money I'm sure I'm noticing the difference in quality. I can't afford not to  ;)

Here's me experimenting with AEB (and then combined in Photomatix / Lightroom). (And yes, I know I could AEB with 1000D, but it's easier with 6D as you hold your finger on the shutter and it stops automatically after the 3 shots.) I hadn't thought of AEB on a moving subject before, but why not?

Anyone else tried new things after a massive camera body upgrade and care to share?

Technical Support / Camera & lens bundle - do Canon tune them?

New to posting.

I'm looking forward to a new Canon 6D with 24 - 105 lens 'bundle'. Just wondering, should I assume I'll need to AFMA this combination or will Canon have done this already given the two are in the same box?

(I rather suspect I will need to check the focus, but just want to be sure.)
