Hi everybody!

I have noticed that more image samples have been released.
I have been following the 6d for a long time as I'm thinking seriously about getting one (jumping from a T1i will be a big change :D)

What do you think about these pics?

As ever it's the RAW's we need to see  but I do like the flower (3200) and the bike (12800) although wrong lens choice for the flower shot I'd have thought but anyway not seeing any nasty colour blotches starting in the dark areas at 12800 very usable, wish they had done that one at 25600 though.

Some RAW shots from 6D and an updated DPP raw converter.  :)


Absolutely, no decision from me until April/May

Canon General / A bit worse for wear

Hi all,
Does anyone know how to repair/disguise brassing on a F1n? (actually on a AE-FN finder)
I’m also wondering if there would be anywhere (UK) that could put a new finish on it cheaper than just getting a ‘new’ clean one.

This is NOT for selling on!

Any help/suggestions most appreciated.

with the new lens series from sigma you don´t need canon for that.
you can do it yourself.

Which means you don't need to have a camera with AFMA or software like FoCal??

OK I read more than 150 words. Interesting article and it looks pretty too, I agree Dustin, Zeiss like.

Really looking forward to learning more about the focus/update software that accompanies this (and all new?) lens and of course more sample pictures

How does this fit in with AFMA?

"This lens kicks butt, takes names, and basically posterizes the manufacturers who make the cameras this lens will fit on."

Ah! at last a lens review I can understand, no techno bollocks just straight to the point ;D ;D

EF 35 f/2 IS

Well that's a first, two images from Canon I really like!!  ;D

That's making me think 6D + 35mm could be a really good low light/street setup

Sorry about the acronym Rusty, normally I hate them ‘cos I don’t know what half of them mean myself  ;D

I have to admit when I wrote that I was kind of angry/frustrated and was thinking it might just flush someone out into saying what actually goes on. One reflection that’s silly and never going to happen.

The reason for the frustration is simply that I have for some time been planning on getting a 5D3 next April/May time it simply ticks all the boxes for me and one of the first and important uses will be a wedding evening reception. Exactly the sort of event I thought this camera was built to excel at. Ah well at least time is still on my side, there may be a fix and I can just use what I’ve got now anyway if needs be.

Louis - why not start a thread on the new Canon forum, you may get a bigger ball rolling there? I’m not a pro so don’t have any weigh or real reason to complain that’s business related.

I hope I’m right in thinking that issues big enough to be affecting business raised by pros are addressed by Canon as a priority!

There is no way low light AF assist focus accuracy wouldn’t be part of a new camera’s field UAT

I’d love to see the paperwork from the in field testers of this camera.

were/did they
a) completely incompetent
b) yes men
c) report accurately basic issues and were ignored

I wonder if some of them frequent this web site but can’t say anything  :-X

AdamJ - best laugh today thanks for that (I work with doctors and surgeons)

I have used HDEW and while they may import from HK or wherever you have no risk of import duty ( as they are UK based ) and they bolt on a three year warranty.  It may not be a full Canon warranty but I have had cause to rely on it with an earlier purchase and the camera was repaired quickly, no quibbles and well by what looks to be a reputable repair shop in Glasgow.  So only one experience but one satisfied customer here ( £2000 for a 5D III not too bad )

Hi Chasn

I'd be interested to know the name of that repair shop?
If you don't want to broadcast it please PM me

Regards
hello, 

I am  interested in learning this information too since I bought my 5D3 from HDEW.


Was it A J J________
in Hope St

 


That's actually what I was wondering too
