EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 6D Firmware by June? [CR1]

In theory f/8 AF capability should be easier to implement on the 6D center pt. than it is on the 5D3 & 1DX (longer linepair). Same with AI Servo AF point selected indicator, it should have been there from the get-go. How about uncompressed video out via HDMI, is that too much to ask for a $2K FF body? It's just disabled in the firmware anyway :P.

If Canon wants the next 7D to focus as fast as 1-series bodies, they only have 2 choices: use an integrated grip body to accommodate the higher-voltage 1D-series batteries or develop a smaller version of that higher-voltage battery that can fit in the handgrip of a 7D body (lesser capacity obviously).

To those who still have not figured out why 1D-series bodies AF faster than lesser bodies even with the same lens, here's a simple yet clear comparo between a 1D2 body and a 5D using the same lens (85L with lenscap on, measuring how fast the lens spins from MFD to infinity):

Of course, only Canon knows if it's just firmware, AF CPU, higher lens driving voltage, or a combination of all 3 that is responsible for the performance delta.

All the samples are now out!

Image 4=ISO 6400 (61-sec. Bulb exposure, why include that pic???, horrible blotchy color noise in the shadows)
Image 7= ISO 1600 (soft overall, light BG flatters noise performance)
Image 8= ISO 800 (doesn't look that sharp for the top-of-the-line macro lens, no visible noise, as expected)

Conclusion: Image 5 model is still cute & hot  ;)

It's coming. They felt that the 2007 50MP APS-H sensor is too little, so they made a 120MP version in 2010:

Same time as the crApple fanb0is stop buying their yearly incremental upgrades.  :P

7D AF & tweaked 5D2 sensor are too obvious for Canon, they had to bend over backwards to make yet another FF & AF sensor.  ::)

There's only one "feature" that Canon can add that would make more people buy the 6D: MSRP at $1499.  8)

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D Sync speed only 1/180s?
« on: September 18, 2012, 01:06:43 PM »
Also strange is that even the top-of-the-line Canon FFs can't do 1/300 X-Sync like the 1D3/1D4 APS-H, only 1/250, but the top-end Nikon FFs since the D3 can do it. So that fact belies the Canon apologist's excuse that the bigger travel distance for the shutter blades due to the larger FF sensor is the reason for the slower X-Sync.

Pentax already beat the 6D by a week or so:

Pentax K-5 II AF:

11 point SAFOX X autofocus system

New, highly advanced and accurate 11 point SAFOX X autofocus system offers the widest EV focus range in its class and is ideal for focusing in low conditions, as low as -3EV.

Type: SAFOX X TTL phase-difference 11 point (9 cross) wide autofocus system with light wavelength sensor
Focus modes: AF Single (w focus lock, focus/shutter priority selectable), AF Continuous (w focus/FPS priority selectable), Manual
Focus point adjustment: Auto 11 Point, Auto 5 Point, User-Selectable, Center
AF assist: Yes, via dedicated LED AF assist lamp

Also, Canon never mentioned how responsive and accurate the AF would be at -3EV light levels. They only said it would focus. What if it takes 1 minute of half-pressing the shutter release button to get there?   :P

EOS Bodies / Re: At what price point will you consider buying the Canon 6D?
« on: September 18, 2012, 12:33:49 PM »
As the so-called "entry-level" FF it should have the entry-level price to match the cut-down specs. It would be the breakthrough product of the year if it had an introductory price south of US$1499. The FF Insurgent/Mutineer/Insurrectionist/Guerrilla that brought 35mm FF digital to The Great Unwashed/Lumpen Proletariat SD card bearers.  :P

That Japanese exec who rationalized the recycling of the 5D1 AF sensor for the 5D2 should have been fired a long time ago. Also hire a better product marketer. Chuckie boy should have pushed the conservative Japanese Canon execs more so they would take more risks.

Won't be buying a crop DSLR anymore, the writing is on the wall for APS-C DSLRs and EF-S lenses. Next round of entry-level FF would prolly be around $1500 (6D should have been at this price point and it would have reduced the whining by 90%). APS-C sensors would be relegated to the MILC, Rebel and xxD line. Most probably one of the APS-C lines would even disappear.

It's odd that it does not use CF cards. My 50D used CF cards.  For a pro that point is hard to overlook.

CF is obsolete.

I keep reading this misinformation. "SD cards are cheap, if you can afford to get the body, surely you can buy a few new memory cards." The problem with that is you lose the interoperability with your existing cards. CF cards would always be faster and have more capacity than SD cards due to the bigger real estate and built-in memory controller. Any advances in memory density that manufacturers can apply to SD cards can also be made to CF cards, the physically bigger area would ensure that it would always have bigger maximum capacity than SD cards. And people keep talking as if most potential upgraders to the 6D were using cameras with SD slots. The Rebel 300D, 350D and 400D all use CF cards. At the very least Canon should have made dual CF & SD slots for a $2000 camera.  ::)

Well, I can say that Image 5 (Portrait at ISO 200) is a definite win. I rate it at 10/10.  ;)

if you rate that portrait at 10/10 how you rate this one (made with Nikon D600):

12 out of ten????

from the first samples available ( Canon 6D and Nikon D600 ) Nikon CLEARLY wins.

I am a Canon fun and use Canon gear from many years... but i must admit... in this  days Nikon is better.

Heck, no! I was rating the subjects, not the pictures :P. The Canon gal is definitely prettier , that's why I rated her a 10. The Nikon girl is kinda pedestrian-looking, maybe just a 7. :P

Hahaha.  ;D

And, oh, in before the lock! :P

Winning!  ;D

The 6D has no built-in flash. I prefer my compact old 220EX for family photos; it is superior to the new 270EX II sold today.

The 6D is the world's best DSLR.

It's a huge improvement over the 5D Mark II due to the improvements from automatic color fringe correction, and the greatly improved power, depth-of-field and playback controls.

If you shoot Canon, you deserve one of these. If you've read this far, you know you want one, and if you wait two years, you'll still want one. Get one today, and you'll have all these years to enjoy it. The 5D series has been on a three-year product cycle, so I don't expect the Canon 5D Mark IV until 2016.
