Hi there,

I feel it's a waste of money upgrading from one Canon rebel to the next rebel or even a 60D to the 70D.
I suggest that you upgrade only to a larger sensor body.
It is just a waste of money to buy another camera having the same size sensor IMO.

Upgrade your glass instead.

"Upgrading" means switching to a higher grade. 60D and 70D are in the same grade, so it won't be an upgrade, only an update. Neither sensor size nor price define camera grade, it's about the whole package.

1DX should be a decent replacement ;)

This was recently shot on a 6d :( I'm pretty sure it's a memory card failure but still :P First time this has happened so I'm trying not to have a panic attack    :-[

Did you try re-copying this image from your card? It is very likely that the data was corrupted during the transfer.

I'd rather shoot mRAW/sRAW than a JPEG.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Cards for 6D

Any decent UHS-1 SDXC card should be fine and I think that 64GB cards are the sweet spot in price/capacity these days, so it's around $50 (40-60).

I'm using Transcend USB 3.0 reader and it gives me all the speeds they claim on each card (like ~80MB/s UHS-1). It is cheap, small and it works. If someone is interested, model number TS-RDF8K

1st. Win7 has a silly way to calculate file transferring speed. It shows the progress of data migration to memory buffer instead of the final destination.
2nd. This bug is very obvious with larger files when the source drive has faster copying speed than writing speed of the destination drive, it hangs at 99% (or before finishing each file in a sequence) while waiting for data to finish writing from memory buffer.
Have a look at the other USB devices you have connected; My cellphone for instance causes some screwiness when I have it plugged in.

Some USB devices do not "play nice" with others, you better not use them simultaneously, specially on the same USB hub.

4th. Try copying to a different hard drive (not sure about 11-12MB/s, but if the one you are using is near full it's writing speed may drop below 30MB/s) or using a different USB 3.0 reader.

Good news. I'd like it to be the second generation of Sigma's wide Macro lenses (24/1.8Macro, 28/1.8Macro).
