Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Hand on SONY RX 1.............AMAZING
« on: December 19, 2012, 02:32:10 PM »
I was playing with Sony RX 1 yesterday at local camera store….all I can say is WOW.

The IQ is amazing - normal light, low light, super low light no problem. At higher ISO 6400ish the images look REALLY-REALLY good. It looks cleaner than my 5D III @ f2.8 lens

AF speed is quite fast. I didn’t have any problem focus in low light. The lens feel solid. You touch it, you know its high quality lens. 

The chassis is very well made. It feels very solid. This is no plastic stuff…

To me, this Sony RX 1 has great potentials for many uses. The only thing that pulling me back from buying is fixed lens, but I still can see myself travel with this camera very well

I thought I would share.

did you check the price? all I can say is WOW  ;) .

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 6D Raw Sample Images With Comparison To 5D2 And 5D3

You can download the raw files at the link.  It's three scenes, I setup my tripod with the 70-200mm on it and just switched the bodies so it was the same scene with the three cameras.  From ISO 800 up to the highest for each camera going in 1 stop increments.  Don't have the jpegs up yet.

So what do you think?

What problem does it cause?   Does it affect anything?

When you are using that focus point and when it lights up, it partially masks that area of your framing. It is nothing more than a visual annoyance but it is annoying and shouldn't be there.

I certainly didn't expect a new FF camera to have this type of bleeding issue. My old rebels and 60D never had this issue.

Thanks for confirming georgeones!

I wonder if others have the same issue? If so, then this could be due to a design flaw and I'm not sure how Canon can fix it without replacing some hardware.

I hardly ever use that point... but bleeding is a defect  :(

Here is how it looks like. I was able to capture it via the viewfinder using my phone. Note the area above the top focus point:

EOS Bodies / 6D Top Focus Point Light Bleeding Issue

Hi all 6D owners,

I just noticed that when the top focus point is lit, there is some very noticeable light bleeding around that focus point.  I wonder if any of your 6D has the same issue.

I have some questions.

The sample images Canon released don't look exactly sharp, I don't know if it's due to the lack of sharpening or if it's just me, but can anybody comment on that or perhaps post a full-res jpg?

Any noticeable improvements in Dynamic Range?

Can you still change the AF point using the top right button like I can on my 500D, or do you have to use the wheel?


Sharpness: Don't expect 6D to be any sharper.  your glass is the only determining factor. but you do get AF micro adjustment which I don't need for my copy of 24-70L Mark I.

DR: Again don't expect a big jump in this either. I am not sure if I noticed any difference in DR for the high ISO shots I have taken so far.  There is however the in-camera HDR feature which I'd like to try soon. But I will need to mount it on the tripod first.

The reasons for me to upgrade are:
- Getting the "proper" focal length perspective (24mm on FF is much wider than on cropped sensor and I can be much more creative with my 24-70L now)
- High ISO performance (much much better than cropped, some people say it's even better than 5D3)
- Auto ISO with minimum shutter speed (fixed presets only though)
- Shallower DOF
- Low light AF (takes about a second in really dim situation, seems reliable so far)
- I can use a 50mm like a 50mm now

To me, those are the only reasons that matter to me. Overall, I am quite happy with it as I always shoot indoor without flash and I need a minimum of 1/80 or 1/125 shutter speed.

I just upgraded from a 60D which I had used heavily for 2 years (non-professional).  I'd happy to answer any questions you may have.
