This 6d's review is the world's best review ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D max shutter speed, 1/4000 or 8000 ???
« on: September 17, 2012, 01:13:45 PM »
It's 1/4000 for sure, I have checked Canon China, Canon Japan and Canon US all of them say 1/4000.
BTW, I love golf gti ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D Sensor... why?
« on: September 17, 2012, 01:07:44 PM »
5D II had 12,000 and 25,000 for the H1 H2 while 6D has 51,000 and 102,000 for H1 H2.  Perhaps it's a trimmed down 5D III....not a trimmed down 5D II.  Or just all new.  Not that I know jack about creating sensors.
The main reason of this because 6d has the latest digic 5+ processor.

According to Canon USA the image format of 6D is 35.8mm x 23.9mm, 5D2 is 36mm x 24mm.
I guess Canon just trim down the 5D2's sensor a bit. Maybe the AF is also modified from the 9 point AF in the 5D2. In this way, Canon is able to use these 4 years old parts to create a new body, reduce the overstocked 5D2 sensors and AF module and cut the cost a lot. Three birds with one stone.

Nope. I did some quick calculations and the number of total pixels on this sensor is less than the number of effective pixels on a trimmed-down 5d2 sensor, so the pixel pitch is definitely different.

Besides, modifying a stock of existing components is, even if it's possible (and I really doubt that it is in this case), hardly cost-efficient. It's just plain easier to produce a new piece from scratch.
I did my calculation as well, but I think canon also used other techniques (something difficuilt for consumers to find out) to achieve this. I don't think canon is that stupid to let us discover this just by any simple calculation.
All of these are just my speculation though.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: EOS 6D sample images and video here

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):

http://chsvimg.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d600/img/sample01/img_02_l.jpg

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.

Wow, the portrait shot from D600 is way sharper than 6D's.

The wording might be an unlucky one. It might as well mean that the center point is a higher precision cross-type, and that there are more cross-types among the other 10 points.
I really don't think it is just unlucky wording. Several sources have already confirmed that it has only 1 cross type point, and many Canon related web forums are in flames a.t.m.

Regarding 6D vs D600:

It looks like Nikon has put things where they count - AF, sensor, etc. - while Canon has none of that, but went for the 'ooh, shiny!' factor with WiFi, GPS and (?) touchscreen - advertising points that shop assistants can use to attract those who know little about cameras.

The D600 looks like a camera One could consider if they really didn't need need the 36MP or fully-fledged AF of the D800. The 6D looks like something almost designed to disappoint the buyer into splashing out for a 5D3 six months later...
No touchscreen

« on: September 17, 2012, 07:04:21 AM »
Anyway, 11 cross-type points well spread and the AF performance could have been questionable in comparison with D600's 39 points (9 cross-type); 10 linear + 1 cross type for a +2000$ camera in 2012 is what it is: insulting.

That's crazy.  Wonder if there is a catch, i.e. grey market, etc?
Almost thought about picking up a second 5D III at that price..
It's from Adorama mate, if you heard of B&H, they both are very large Canon USA Authorised Dealers. So not grey!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 6D Specs Leaked?
« on: September 15, 2012, 12:55:42 PM »
Digicame-info just updated the specs:

Viewfinder coverage:97%, Magnification:0.71X
Size: 144.5x110.5x71.2mm(not 114.5, my mistake)
Af: A new strong low light detection model

5D2 has a 98% viewfinder coverage, D600 is 100%
A new released Pentax k-5 II claimed their 11 point AF detection range is from -3EV, so Canon has a similar one??
