Spend $6800 on a camera. Power it with a knock-off that may not be manufactured with proper QC, may lack safety circuitry, etc., to save perhaps $50, less than 1% of the cost of the camera. Yeah, that makes sense...
Sony is a great company, but they should stick to TV's and making movies like Skyfall.
Aperture 1.2 @ISO 100 and sunlight anyone?
Assuming Sunny 16, 1.2 and ISO 100 should result in a shutter speed of 1/16000, if my calculations aren't completely off-base. And that's just a rule of thumb, it could be brighter.
QuoteTop shutter and sync speeds are the same. No one uses 1/4,000, much less 1/8,000, so the 5D Mark III having 1/8,000 makes no difference in actual shooting.
My fear with digital is longevity. I've communicated with several restorers, archivists, etc. who universally say the only genuinely reliable long-term storage medium we have is paper. All digital storage formats degrade far more quickly than paper.
Comments like this make me wonder if I would spend so much money on a 6D. I have a 550D (T2i) right now and I really want to go fullframe. I can't justify it to spend more than 2000 euro on a body though. So the 5D3 is out. Switching to the D600 is an option, but I don't want to sell all my Canon gear. So I was at least hoping that the center point was great and the other points were decent. But since they're crap, I'm really having second thoughts...
I feel you Mandy, thanks to bring back a bit of financial reality here. It's mainly about boys crying about their (expensive) toys. Well I agree sometimes I cry a bit as well, but thank you to remind us we should be happy to have a camera and to be able to actually make some pictures.
On the other hand, you must understand; this person has realized too late that the trendy colors for safaris changed from white/red to black/gold this year. And as you know a gentleman can not afford such an error of taste
