It seems the 6D can be controlled by an Android or Iphone. That's pretty cool! People will make timelapps  : :P :P within the week. Remote LV anyone?

that can be done already, http://www.dslrbot.com/

But then you need the transmitter? I was thinking with built in wi-fi it can be done directly. And you don't need line of sight.

Anybody know if the wireless can trigger the RT600? (I guess if it that were the case, the press release would say about it.)

Not without the st-e3 I guess.

The 6d will be able to focus in -3 ev so in that regard, it's even better than the 1d X.

Sure - *if* you happen to shoot in the dark and *if* you don't have a flash with af assist light (or the distance is too far) and *if* your lens is still able to provide an acceptable shutter speed - that might exclude the kit f4 lens.

The question is how *precise* the af will be at all and at esp. at low light, otherwise it's useless. We'll have to wait until January to find out... to me, the 6d sounds more like a "high iq tourist camera" than d600 competition.

Are you saying you already have forgotten just how much the 1d X has been put down by people who shoot all grey subjects in pitch black of how bad the lowlight af is? Also the same with the very long thread about 5d3 and weddings? Lol.

Oh well, I really don't care if *everybody*  has decided this camera sucks after seeing a first speclist, I just think it's wrong. Everybody thrashed the 1d X for having only 18mp, it has better DR, noticeably! Way less noise, even at lower iso's, sharper and more fine detail than the 5d3 and it isn't exactly the only time this has happened. The 24-70 was thrashed because of the price, but hey people who hav. ACTUALLY used seems to think, hm it's expensive but it is the sharpest zoom ever made...

Maybe it's wise to wait to thrash a camera until after something other than a speclist is provided? The 6d will be able to focus in -3 ev so in that regard, it's even better than the 1d X.

If you buy a new camera as soon as it is available are you really seriously thinking THAT would be the price for the next three years??

No I don't care!

Lenses / Re: 24-70 vs 24-70 II Outdoors Test! WHOOAAA!!!b
« on: September 16, 2012, 05:26:08 AM »
Landscapes are one thing, but how is the af for fast close up stuff? I actually find the old 24-70 to have very good af. Is the new one like the 70-200 that doesn't rotate but jumps to focus?
As I said, I am not a landscape photographer. I just did this comparison because people asked for it.
I used it for the first time in the studio today. It was perfect. Didn't miss one photo. Great and fast.
I was having a lot of out of focus pictures with my new 1D X and the old lens. Problems I never had with the 1D Mark IV. I thought I had a defective camera or that it wasn't good enough. Turns out it was the Old lens that couldn't keep up with the speed of the new AF system...
I will be selling the old baby right away. If anybody is interested, let me know before I throw it on eBay.  ;)

Thanks, but in studio is hardly fast action now is it?

I find it very strange your old 24-70 was worse on the 1d X than on the 1d4 though af-wise. I have had all sorts of lenses and with better bodies they have always been better, at least with AF. The worst AF-lens of all (at least speed) the 85 L II is twice as fast on the 1d X than it was on the 5d3 for example, I can use it for moving subjects now.

And when you said in studio, where you still in One Shot mode?

BTW, checked your website, and you have some seriously good skills, cudos! Oh, and pretty models as well ::)

Lighting / Re: Direct Flash - How to make it useful?
« on: September 16, 2012, 04:36:13 AM »
Has someone even mentioned GELS here? I find that color balance often is the giveaway when using direct flash. You can get away with flat light and harsh shadows more than a dark yellow background. And as pointed out by others, balancing your flash with ambient is key. Have the same light and same focal for a subject shot with flash with background 2 stops under and then two stops over makes for two VERY different pictures.

FoCal for me also. Now with Mac beta release out. Not for mountain lion.

The beta doesn't run on Mountain Lion?

Something about a driver from Canon being released in October I think. I swapped to Lion from snow leopard, but it never worked with my hardware so I'm still running SL.

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 50 F1.2L And EF 35 F1.4L Sharpest Settings
« on: September 15, 2012, 01:59:51 AM »
At 1.2 the depth of field on the 50mm L at close distances is about 4 millimeters. If you or the subject moves the slightest bit, it will not be in focus where you intended.

I usually compensate by shooting at F2 or 2.8 and find it very sharp at those f stops.

Ai Servo on the 1d x takes care of that.

Will the 5d miii do the same in Ai servo?

For a portrait with small movement I say they're very similar yes. If you work with the 85 L the difference in response is much better on the 1d x. But with the 1d will also track the eyeball of å running 3 year old at f1.2.
