EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 6D launch and effect on 5D MkII & MKIII

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the advantages of built in wifi for videographers. We fly a 60D on a crane sometimes and being able to see what I'm recording wirelessly on any of my pocketable screens, or even a tablet will be ground breaking for that kind of work. Or how about those shots where the camera is hidden? I've done a shot with a dslr that was inside a fridge and though its a rare shot, the convenience of less takes is always welcome. Directing via cell phone? Man... I'm betting anything the magic lantern guys are already thinking of ways to play with the wifi function.

It would have been great for videographers only wifi doesn't work in video mode.!!
maybe ML will fix this in the near future

I'm pretty sure that they will have 2 versions on the camera in countries that the wireless spectrums used are not a) available or b) legal for consumer product use.  I think the same has been talked about already for the rt-600 flash.

This is what we think in Europe too, especial the others not me! ;) I hope the 6Dn will come to us and you too, because i donĀ“t ned gps and wlan and dont want to pay for that.  :-\

I don't care about GPS but after hearing of the use of Android/iPhone as a remote trigger/viewer I have changed my mind about wifi.  I could live without it but I am happy to see that Canon is accepting established versatile technology as an accessory

except when recording movies then wifi is disabled????? >:(

The two things that the 6D is lacking that I think are important to a amateur/prosumer photographer are a second memory card slot and a pop-up flash.  I just purchased a Nikon D600 for my father, rather than the 6D, because the D600 had the second memory card slot and a pop-up flash.

I could care less about WiFi and GPS....and video for that matter!  I think Canon should have designed this camera geared toward purely still photography, and left out the video, which would have kept down the retail price and Canon might have been able to price it around $1,500.  The Nikon D700 doesn't have video, and look at how many still love that camera!

I am fascinated as to why people feel a second card slot is worth a dime, I have had one for years and rarely use it, even then it is only for an Eye-Fi, something I could easily live without. Why do people value a second card slot so highly?

for example:
dual slots can be used as a raid setup so writing the same to both cards , that way you don't have to pull all your hair out of your head when a card goes corrupt  :o
or shoot jpg on one and raw on the other so on events you can ofload the jpg's quickly and keep the raws as backup

Don't you know:
  • Nikonrumors: Website where people whine about Nikon and threaten to switch to Canon
  • Canonrumors: Website where people whine about Canon and threaten to switch to Nikon

 :) ::) one could be tempted to start a competition about who's crying on a higher level...

Canon whiners whine faster and even about the most obscure lit isues.
Nikon whiners whine about a more broader range of isues.

could it be that the yellowish cam has the WB SHIFT enabeled?

eos utility can probably be downloaded via a torrentsite.

Just to be clear are both camera's running the same settings&picturestyle and is the high light tone optimiser off etc...
And when you try the auto white balance is the efect the same?

wohoooo ;D 8) :P

That is why "most" shoot raw. so they can adjust everything in post.
Same is true for video if raw is a option then there is no need for cinestyles.

for video geting the picture right is even more inportant than shooting JPG because of the video codec compression.
compare a jpg at 7MB/picture with video 5MB/sec

If they had to criple the body this much (5,6 crosstype,  only sd  ,97% viewfinder..etc)
Then the sensor probably would have been the succesor to the 18Mpx 1dx sensor they had to drop due to resent HiGH Mpx and dynamic range competition.
This would mean that this little camera could have the potentional to make briliant pictures/movies. in the later case you have to manual focus anyway  ;)

You better get the vest+support arm with the glidecam +1500,-euro if you want to take shots longer than 30sec.

With your budget a decent camcorder is out of the question.
I would wait if the 7dmarkII is anounched or the "budget fullframe" they will likely offer the best and newest features for a around 2000,- priceticket.

I'm hoping for 24Mp aps-h so the aps-c sensor will revert to the xxd,xxxd,xxxxd series
The 1D-cinema uses aps-h crop for 4k video so the 7DII could be the baby cinema without the 4k.

In many ways the 7d was the more video orientated camera than the 5dII was.

canon just released a new 18Mp aps-c sensor with Phase AF on chip, wouldn't it be more logic if they used that chip in all the new aps-c camera's. just as they did with the original 7d 18Mp sensor.

If they had the aps-c 24Mp Phase AF on chip ready why not use it in the 650d?


Did you try removing the battery from camera as they mentioned in instructions

removing the battery helped my burstrate!

My understanding was that the limitation is on the file size, not the total length of the recording. In other words, when the time hits 29:59, the camera will open a new file and keep on recording into the new file without interruption. If you record a 90 minute play, you hit 'Record' once at the beginning, stop at the end, and you have three files with no gaps.

That is wrong.
the 29:59 limit is because of a EU tax limit
Because of the FAT32 formating system of the camera files are limited to 4GB files
depending on the data rate of your codec the 5dmarkIII will now produce multiple 4GB files untill it reaches the 29:59 limit.

on the 7D a 4GB file results in about 12minutes files
