I wonder if I calculate the magnification right. Now I'm taking 71% of the total sensor surface. If I try to take 71% of each side of the sensor and then calculate the surface I end up with a tad smaller rectangle.

Ok I found a flaw. I assumed my Dell U2410 had 72 dpi, which I guess is from the old analog days, but it actually has 94 dpi. But I'm still not sure if the calculations are correct at all. Anyone?

edit:
update result pic with dpi

There you go. If anyone can tell me these calculations are correct I could make a public tool out of this.

Hi,

I am trying to make a little tool for myself to compare viewfinder sizes. I do get some results but the rectangles seem to be a bit small I think. Probably interpreting some values wrong. Can someone please have a look?

The colors in red are the 6D's sensor size, magnification, viewfinder coverage and aspect ratio respectively.

magni = ((35,8 mm * 23,9 mm) = 855,62 mm2) * .71x = 607,4902 mm2
surface = (magni * 97%) = 589,265494 mm2
edge = sqrt(surface) = 24,274791327630398396804364790437 mm) * 2 = 48,549582655260796793608729580875 mm
aspec_part = edge / (3 + 2) = 9,7099165310521593587217459161749 mm
width = aspec_part * 3 = 29,129749593156478076165237748525 mm
height = aspec_part * 2 = 19,41983306210431871744349183235 mm
width_px =(width * 0,0393700787) = 1,1468405339938635232734500043636 inch * 72 dpi = 83px
height_px = (height * 0,0393700787) = 0,76456035599590901551563333624242 inch * 72 dpi = 55px

Below are the results I get.

Thanks,
Ron

Does Auto ISO work in manual mode? My 500D is stuck on ISO400 in manual and Auto ISO.

Sorry for being unclear. By "wheel" I actually meant the D pad. And currently I change AF point using the top right button and then turning the wheel behind shutter just like you said.

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?

Thx

Thank you very much for your initial thoughts. I was kind of waiting for this information. I am in the same boat as you were, I have a 500D and use it for travel/nature. I went to a local photo store and held one in my hands. It feels absolutely amazing and the large viewfinder is a great improvement.

Thanks for answering my questions about focus, ISO and operation! I think I'm going to buy myself a nice Christmas present this year. ;D

If you lookup the EOS Remote app in the Play Store it says:

(W)? Wifi only version?
