Immature Rufous Hummingbird from Monday.
Additionally, he adds in that the 1Dx and 5D3 would have never AF'd in a particular situation that the 6D did. He also makes the accusation that we've never shot with the 6D so how can we comment?
1. The 1Dx and 5D3 would have easily AF'd in that case, so that point right there is simply objectively WRONG.
2. He hasn't shot with the 1Dx or 5D3, yet makes the above comment. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
Is he for real? There's NO WAY any sane person could both make the arguments he's making and simultaneously believe in those arguments.
The AF system of the 1Dx is best = $6799
The AF system of the 5D3 is second best = $3399
The AF system of the 6D is the "least good" out of all 3 = $2000 ish
ken rockwell says the 6d af is better than the 5diii which is too complicated. the 6d af doesn't get in the way, it just works baby!
the focus plane is the same in every picture at F 1,4
show proof that I am wrong, the AF measurement angle accuracy in Canons AF is F-2,8
I know Im right
it will be interesting!!!!
Its not really comparing apples with oranges because the Eg-S allows you to see in the viewfinder more accurate DOF - even when autofocusing - than the 5D3's stock screen which is not user replaceable. 5D3's fixed focus screen only shows about f/2.8 DOF while the Eg-S on the 6D will come close to the DOF of f/1.2.
So, the fact that the 6D allows the user to swap to Eg-S means that what you see in the viewfinder when both AF *and* MF will more accurately represent the end product. If you do choose to MF to that end product, it is worlds easier on the 6D using Eg-S vs the 5D3's fixed screen.
Yes, the 5D3 will likely allow to set up your shots faster, but that does not make the 6D AF useless.
I feel like the back button focusing isn't as reliable -or maybe I'm doing it wrong. Are you supposed to be holding the backbutton(what I've been doing) or just press it once? I'm shooting in AI Servo.
The lateral points are vertical line sensors, meaning they detect horizontal lines
I thought you were discussing side AF points. Those eyes look pretty centered in the FOV to me, unless this is heavily cropped...which I doubt.
I don't know of anyone who wanted a 5D3 at 6D prices. Rather, I suspect there are plenty who would pay $4500 for a 5D3.
the 5diii was a very small improvement (leaving AF aside) over the 5dii.
This is CR forum at its best. I'm learning slot from this thread being a light beginner also.
I agree. So here is my first example:
I know the composition is awful and the background is fussy (but the subject is somewhat dear to me). I used the 24-70mm in Av mode (with the Camera set to keep the shutter between 1/60 and 1/200) and had the flash in simple ETTL mode, mounted on the camera and pointed straight ahead - i.e. in simple mode! I'm pretty happy with the result - it has had no post-processing beyond that which Aperture does on import.
Excellent, you are not being pushed into running and stumbling before you are happy walking :-) , as I said earlier camera in Av and flash in ETTL really is how this stuff is best used initially.
If you look here:
it looks like this lens is sharpest around 5.6. I wouldn't go above F8 unless you really needed the additional DOF.
My 135L is sharpest at F5.0 as per Focal Pro. Is your lens AFMA'd to the body?
For fun you could always try walking up the sync speed too - it is a function of the camera max sync which was talked about earlier along with the trigger max sync. The worst thing that can happen is you will start to see the banding of the shutter creep into the shot - from there back it off a 1/3 of a stop or so.
I've never had any issues at 1/200s with the 5DIII, so that could help, too.
Otherwise more distant future.....I think it maybe a mix of how the Lytro can focus
