EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Cannot Keep Screwing It's Customers Over
« on: December 21, 2012, 04:05:30 PM »
I am the type of person who knows I am being ripped off when I buy a product on it's launch date.  I hate myself for paying the premium price but I do it anyways.  Some how that goes away once I am home, opening the box and holding the product in my hand.  I feel so excited and happy I don't care I was ripped off anymore.

I am sure there are many like me out there and Canon knows it.  So yes Canon will continue to screw people like me.  Ahhh, so this is what it feels like to be on the receiving end.  ;)

Canon, like most companies markup their prices for those who must have the latest gadget first.  After those people are ripped off the prices slowly start to come down and are aimed at the consumers waiting for a deal.

Cool image... He seems to be very intense... Too bad so dark out at that time or heavy shade, sunlight would have lit up his coloring really nice.  I do like his interesting pose!  Nice image Renegade!

Thanks.  I also liked the pose.  Unfortunately it was dark

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Do you miss APS-C?
« on: December 17, 2012, 11:14:49 PM »
At the moment no.  Now that winter is here there is very little wildlife in the form of birds to photograph.  I know in the spring and summer when all the birds return I will miss and want the reach.

Yeah, so far my biggest complaint is the Battery Nazi they programmed in to the firmware that says, "No Battery Status for YOU!" with a 3rd party battery.  Bastards.

lol  Oh man.  I guess that's Canon's way of saying don't even think about buying something that isn't Canon.  That sucks.

I am beginning to think I am the only one who got a flawless 6D.   At least have not come across any issues yet.  I have my fingers crossed.
Ditto.  So far.  Fingers Crossed.  I'll report any problems I have if you agree to do the same Renegade!  (After my 5D3 ordeal, it's nice to be on the fully functional side of the fence for a change.)

Welcome to the other side of the fence  :)  I hope I wont have to but I promise to report anything unusual with my 6D.

Mine's been great too.  Depending on what body the OP was coming from I can see his frustration.  If he was coming from a 7D, then it makes sense he's complaining about the AF.  If he was coming from a T2i or similar, the 6D, mine at least, smokes it for AF speed.

However, I put my 6D though a scenario I knew it would lose yesterday, tracking my dog running flat out towards me after a ball my friend had thrown.  My old 7D jumped at this opportunity nailing every shot, the 6D returned 1 of 6 shots tack sharp, 2 sort of acceptable, and 3 not at all acceptable.  This was using centre-point only.  Although I was able to shoot at 6,400 cleanly to stop motion, which I couldn't have done with the 7D.

The fact of the matter is, I knew going in that I'd lose AF ability with the 6D at the gain of better DOF control and low-light capability.  I also gained $500-800 by not going 5D3.  I don't often shoot high-speed action so it was a good tradeoff for me.  It is good to know the limitations though.

That's one thing I have not tested.  The high speed action shots.  I will have to try that out on some birds in flight and see what I come up with.  No doubt I will get mixed results like yourself and what I have heard from others online.
