EOS Bodies / 6d, canon refurb issues, and AFMA results
« on: November 28, 2013, 11:11:44 AM »
I recently purchase a 6d from canon refurb sale. Tested it out, image quality sucked. AF was totally off, even after focal and hand AFMA. I compared shots taken from a bh demo unit, with no edited settings besides raw. Immediately noticeably better. I prepare a whole folder for canon repair to look at.

The choice was to send it back or have them fix it. I've need a replacement for my junked 7d I sold a while ago. I chose to fix it. Jus got it back, took some shots, then focal. Here are the results.

Minimal info on the repair sheet - AF adjustments.

These are twice as good as the blur city it was originally. But it doesn't look great, especially not full frame great. Admittedly, the pictures do look a lot better and it harder to argue it, but look at those results...like soft. To less soft. In comparison, before it went back the settings came back -9 -9 for this sharp copy of 24-105.

I will not an do not conduct image quality test after image processing, so no I won't be running them through lightroom or dpp to see how much better they can get. I expect good images out of camera.

Lastly, every image I work with is viewed at 100 percent and similar settings, so there is no deviation.

What do you guys think? More details to come.

Any new news on when a new canon body might appear..? I mean anything?

Im running my t2i into the ground...and the 72100 looks delish but im not switching. Love my t2i and dont want to see it lose its life before an new body - at nice high intro price becomes available.

(Cant believe the 60d and 7d are still on the market. Neither are options for me. 6d is the same.)

Was thinking ( lot) about a t4i, but the prices are a bit too high for my tastes. I may have to go this route as a holdover body, but im just not sure thats a wise decision.

What is a portrait shooter that cant afford a 5d3 to do?


:(

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Camon M (mini) prices

I wonder if anyone is asking canon why the Europeans get the speedlite in the box, while Americans have to shell out almost 200 bucks for it.

body w/22m+flash+extra battery= 1050.00 And wait, 200 bucks for an apapter...oh yes canon, thanks very much for that one.

I dont get it. Of course canon is overcharging on EVERYTHING these days, but 1050 for a an almost dslr is kina bongos. Especially considering that battery is only good for 250 shots. (<---- wtf? )

Dont get me wrong, i think the t4i sensor is there is great- we dont need no other tiny sensor cameras. M43 is holding that line.

I think there is a lot of good here..just wrapped up in sheer canon conservative stupidity.
