The actual status of my 6D: It returned yestreday after almost 2 weeks. Camera works now basically. Changed the card-slot-board (if I have translated this right). But now, the main front wheel does not work. Sent it back again.... More to come

Argh, that's a good reason to have a backup camera. But on the bright side: They can hardly charge you again after sending back this camera as "repaired", so imho whatever should be the issue with the wheel should be on them.

The first repair was on warranty (free). As I told the service center, that it returned with an issue, they told me to send it to them again for free (an parcel service fetched the parcel)

I am very sorry, that I wrote not the exact process in my postings. I have removed the battery afterwards. I did everything that was written down in the manual.

I´ve tried to access the camera via USB, but it did not work.
One things I have recognised when I prepaired it for UPS: The batteries do get very warm.

The camera is now on the way to Canon

Much thanks for all replies!!!!!! I will write it in this forum, which error has occured.

Have you tried starting up the camera in a different mode? (e.g change from Av to C1).

This might help: http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/unbricking

thanks, does not work too. Tried it in every other mode.

It'd have to be a really awesome camera to make me spend more monies from my mk3. I mean no hold outs from canon. Built in RT, swappable focus screens, 4k video, new AF and metering from 7d2, DPAF, touch-screen,  all at the same mk3 release price of $3499.

+100 if 3499.... But I do more believe in 4500-5000

Thanks fot the tipps.

Question: At Sony rumors forum they wrote, that the next lenses for the coming high MP Sony body will have to move upwards in the resolution.
Do the existing Canon lenses have this higher resolution, or is the posting rubbish?

A big jump from 22 to 53MP. 4-5 fps are ok if landscape or studio orientated.
But which price will we have to pay for it?
I read an fb posting, that it will be between the 5DIII & 1DX. Nearer to the 1DX. I hope this was an "troll" posting.
But Canon will we proud of having the chance to milk us as much as they can ....

But - if payable - great news.

Much thanks!

I tried your tipps, but it did not work. Still the white point on the lower edge for one second. Fully charged battery, everything removed, fresh formatted card,....
And there was no moisture....

I phoned with the Canon support (2 min before closing), and the employee told me to send it to the German Canon service departement. He thinks the main processor is broken - maybe as an result of the fw-upgrade (then there will be NO warranty).  :-[

I need some help, please:
As I read, there is an new 6D-firmware. I tried to get it on my 6D. There was the success-message after updating. I took 2 shots after updating. But after restarting (switch off and on again), the 6D stays black.
No reaction after starting on the display, no reaction if I press any button.
I tried to downgrade to the 1.1.4 firmware, but nothing happened.
There is just an small white dot for one second on the lower left display

Is there anything I can do to get this problem fixed? Or do I have to send it to CPS?

Thanks

I am sorry, my posting was not clear:
I meant, that Canon should meet the 39 point AF-System and the 24MP... (an the better low iso performance  :P)
I did not mean  the touchscreen (I just cited the title of the Dpreview article).

But on the other hand, 200$ more is not an small plus on the price. So I can understand, that Nikonians claim of a to small plus on features/specifications on this new camera...



@ Marsu: Sonikon empire .....  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Where are the XXD Cams that meets these (AF, MP,...) specifications? Is there an 80D in the near future planned????

The 5500 moved up in the price (+200$!!). Let us see, if the + is worth the money

EOS Bodies / Re: High Megapixel Camera Coming in 2015 [CR3]

More megapixels is only part of the problem.

Better megapixels is the more significant problem that Canon faces.

If it simple scales up any of its current APS-C sensors to full frame then it won't address the megapixel quality problem.

On the other hand if it gets a 46MP sensor from Sony, well, all bets are off....

Sir, I do not think, that Conon will release an "bad-sensored" camerabody. Maybe the IQ is not the the IQ you get from the Nikon D800E or Sony A7 36MP.  I hope -  it will be on an equal level like the IQ of todays Canon products.
Just think of, what will happen to Canon if this Camera is rubbish? They will never release an under-average product.
Maybe it took so long to developa an good high MP sensor.
