EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Shutter count on a new 6D
« on: February 10, 2013, 09:03:09 AM »
The default setting is to continue the numbering from the last camera that the card was used in. If you had another canon camera before your 6D, it's just continuing that numbering scheme.

I don't now this is possible ... But will check and revert soonest.

YIKES! ... A kick in the teeth. You were absolutely correct.

This card was initially used in the 5D3 and then moved on to the Sony RX-100. When the 6D arrived I presumed that it would have an SD card in the box and was shocked that Canon didn't include any as a freebie! Anyhow, the card in the RX-100 was moved to the 6D.

All the more surprising is the fact that the last RX-100 file on the card is DSC00137.ARW. The 6D picked up from where the RX-100 left off :o ... The next file on the card is IMG_0138.CR2.

Guess what ... the 6D is saving the files in the same folder as the RX-100 - the 101MSDCF folder on the card ignoring the Canon folder ... I can't understand what the hell is going on but as least this solves the mystery! :)

wow interesting info, and a little wierd at the same time! could understand it if the card was last in another Canon camera but taking the count from a completely different one is strange.

I'd still be surprised if any camera comes off the production line without QA doing some basic tests like does the shutter work  :o

Thank you for the review Dustin I'm struggling to disagree with any of that and to quote Tara I too "have been over thinking which body to purchase."

Anyone familiar with this set of comparisons? I’m looking at differences between the 5D3 and 6D and would like to know if these pics are valid i.e. not processed in some way or fixed to benefit one over the other.

Lenses / Re: Canon FD to EF
« on: February 05, 2013, 05:46:46 PM »
I read about the theLensdoctor.co,uk - but have anyone here tried him, and most important - does it work?

I have that converter and have used it with 24, 35, 50, 100, 200 FD lenses. All focus to infinity.
Would not use any of them wider than 5.6 except the 200 which is fine at 2.8
No idea what a Iscorama Anamorph 1.5x is so don't know if that's important

well.... just parsing through what we know and what we do not know - the encouraging part is that Canon has, in a sponsored forum, acknowledged the issue and committed to address it with a firmware fix.  timing wasn't discussed nor committed to, but this is significant progress.  For Canon to publically state their recognition of this issue, and their approach to make it better, is extraordinary. 

So to say if one is encouraged or optimistic I would say yes there is sufficient evidence to be so.  April is just around the corner, so the next step will be validation and field reaction.  then we will know whether or not to remain optimistic or not!

I agree, it also strikes me as quite a shift in corporate attitude towards customer engagement. In this day and age I don't think 'extraordinary' is too strong a word.

Maybe the guy is all purple about it and just wants rid of  ;D

MPN 5260B020

Can these be checked out by Canon support?

It does sound like bait and switch though

6D Sample Images / Re: for those who snub the 6D AF...
« on: February 01, 2013, 05:33:26 PM »
There is so much hair splitting here.  I don't get it, the shot is absolutely not in focus.  It looks like its not to blame on the camera, but the aircraft window it was shot out of.  I have shot gazillions of pictures out of aircraft windows, that's usually what you get when you hold the camera at an angle to the aircraft window and near the edge of it.  I'm not sure why the original poster tried to prove camera auto focus accuracy with it (don't care what camera it was taken with), or why others are arguing for or against.  This picture proves nothing regarding camera auto focus...

(Neat shot though!)

oh boy that is so +1

EOS Bodies / Re: Expected reception of the 7DII / 70D
« on: January 31, 2013, 04:38:01 PM »
The same way people have received the majority of Canon's offerings in the past year.  People will read the specs and:

•First, scream and cry about the lack of megapixels and dynamic range.
•Then, complain about how it's far too expensive and that Sony and Nikon have xxx for $xxx less.
•Flood of posts from people complaining about how Canon is neglecting their customers because they personally wanted a 5D4 or 1DX2 instead of a 7D2.
•Then talk about all the stuff that they hope Canon addresses in a future firmware update.
•Then get antsy about pre-orders and shipping and create threads asking if anyone has gotten theirs in yet.
•Then when it takes a while, we'll get a flood of "I'm switching to Nikon" threat posts and demands that Canon fix their production lines (regardless of natural disasters).

Then when it finally comes out people will talk about how awesome it is and how much they love it, and how they never doubted Canon for a minute.

While your at it could you tell me the lotto numbers for this weekend cos that looks pretty spot on to me  ::)

I think the 'Return to Shareholders' graph is the important one  ;D

Hi Jens,

You do realise that there is a price to be paid for all this advice, when you get back you’ll have to show us all some photos!  ;D

As for your original IQ test I think you just took two cars put them both into first gear and drove them both down a straight road. Ok maybe not the best analogy I’ll probably get burned for that  :P

I don’t have either of these camera’s but I do know which one I’d rather have on a trip like that, 5D3 hands down
1. Weather sealing
2. High iso performance for real fast shutter speeds (doesn’t sound like you’ll be taking a tri-pod) mono-pod?
3. AF for animal action
4. FPS as above

When you are using the above that’s when the 5D3’s IQ shows

You might also want to have a quick read of this
