6D Sample Images / Re: Anything shot with a 6D
« on: Today at 03:50:51 AM »
My travel companions: 6D + 24-105mm F4L and 50mm F1.8II.

If I was starting out and I could only choose the 5DIII or 750...   I'd be picking the 5D

For me, KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) is important and I don't care about video, so I'll actively avoid tiltable/rotatable LCDs..  just too vulnerable.

I'm sure there's just as many others that want this, but not me...  I wonder what the pros think on this count?

I quite agree on some points but non-fixed LCD isn't actually useless for photography.  Rather it is a useful tool that can be used depending on situations. E.g., landscapes, selfies  ;D, astrophotography.

I hope it's cheaper than the 14mm.  Crossing fingers...  ;D

EOS-M / Re: Anything new on EOS-M3? How it may compare to A6000?

True or fake... that is the question.....

Wow! +1, I hope it's true.

I really love my G11.  Together with an underwater housing, I can take it almost anywhere without fear.

Man Overboard


I love this shot! Well done.
Thanks!

I don't know how but I want to photograph the plankton in the evening.  The water is lit with something like small fireflies.  I wish I can go back.  For other pics taken from this place, you can visit my flickr account.  Thanks!

It is Bioluminescent bacteria.

It could be but most links if you google it will tell you that its bioluminescent phytoplankton.  Going strictly by their definition, a phytoplankton is considered a plant while bacteria is well, a bacteria.  :)  Anyway, I hope to take their pictures once I returned.  I just don't know if my 6D will be able to do it even with its high ISO capability.

The Lone Isle



My goodness, that is one spectacular hunk of rock. Looks like it's about to tip over. Where was this image taken?

This is in Krabi Thailand but more specifically around that area.  I've taken this while island-hopping.  You can also reach this area via Phuket.  This area is stunning not only in the morning but at night.  I don't know how but I want to photograph the plankton in the evening.  The water is lit with something like small fireflies.  I wish I can go back.  For other pics taken from this place, you can visit my flickr account.  Thanks!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 6D True High ISO King?

some 5D guys are extremely insecure and condescending, hating the 6D just like some die hard D8xx fans hate the Sony A7R or D610.
but it all depends on what you shoot or what how much weight you like to carry with you regardless or tiny bit of  AF feature set difference between the 2 in question here.
but one thing I am sure about is the 6D's center point AF is quite much better than any AF point of the 61pts of the 5D Af sensor or D810 sensor.
I tried many times in lowlight and nothing with the mirror beat the 6D in the area of lowlight AF.
The GH4 and the A7s are better than the 6D in this specific area, but none of Nikon Canon with mirror beats it.
Oh and also for long exposure thermal noise, the 6D is about 34 percent better than the 5D3 , you can see it in all sensor tests including Roger's.

Some guys just really don't want to admit 6D's sensor IQ superiority in low-light.  Well, if it's AF that's more important to them and what defines "HIGH ISO KING", then so be it.  We can't argue on something where our definition differs. 

It really hurts when you invested some more $$$ just to find out that it's not superior in everything to something that's significantly cheaper.  ;)

Correct, but the 6D also suffers from that 'disease' as the outer AF points of even the T5i are better than those of the 6D.

I'm a center-point / MF user so this doesn't bother me.  For some, the center point is enough but that's not saying that the outer points doesn't work.

Until then, comment likes "6D center AF point works better than 5D III in low light" is just an imagination.

Even though I'm rather critical with the 6d and Canon marketing, they do say that the 5d3 works up to -2lv, the 6d at half this light. I really doubt there is absolutely nothing to it, the question is if it's really a full stop, how slow the cameras are to af at min. light and how often these situations occur.

I was reminded of an argument not a long time ago that some people can't accept that a lower-priced camera can have a better sensor than its significantly more expensive sibling (in the *same generation).  ::)

Nothing unusual about that, it's the complete package that counts, and of course Canon (and every other manufacturer) will take great care that more money means better overall performance. If you have special needs you can sidestep this system (like landscape with the 6d), but you cannot really escape the logic.

Last not least, if you don't want to read anything about 5d3 vs. 6d don't look at a "6D True High ISO King" thread :-p

I think you are oversimplifying things "you can sidestep this system (like landscape with the 6d), but you cannot really escape the logic".  Is it logical to just take a camera based on your needs?  Again, if you think 6D isn't the "best" for you then why choose it?  You should have bought 5D3 where you are better served.  You said "it's the complete package that counts".  Now, that's not being logical.  That's a statement that is too subjective.  My point is, everybody has a need that is better served by something else as you yourself mentioned.  Choosing a system based on your need, now that is what we can call logical.  The point is, for those guys who doesn't need the best AF but needs the cleanest high ISO IQ, then 6D is really the King.  Of course, it might be a different case for you so 6D might not be the King for you.  Isn't that logical?  Are we escaping the logic in any way?  ::)

Here we go again... 5D3 vs 6D.  I was reminded of an argument not a long time ago that some people can't accept that a lower-priced camera can have a better sensor than its significantly more expensive sibling (in the *same generation).   ::)

Lenses / Re: A New Pancake Lens? [CR1]
« on: August 23, 2014, 12:34:13 PM »
I would love to have 20mm pancake on FF

and an 85 (even a 70 will do).  Just imagine a 20/40/85 pancake combo....  It'll be awesome with my 6D.

I wonder how good will be a Canon 6D with dual ISO.   ;)

PowerShot / Re: Canon Announces the PowerShot SX520 HS & SX400 HS

Don't worry, they'll come soon enough.  If you can't wait, feel free to switch to Nikon.  You might want to try 6D first for the meantime.  It's not as high-DR/MP as the D810 but it's the best Canon can offer if you're looking for IQ/MP.

I think I said I own a 1DX. Why would I want to downgrade? You may love the 6D, but it's already out of date.

My 1DX is very, very close to being out of date for the simple reason of Canon wishing to sustain their professional channels. This is their prerogative.

They could have a new high MP unit in the channels NOW. They could have an innovative mirrorless body in the channels NOW.

Instead, they announced new PowerShots? A lame cloud storage system? A partnership with MS? A new iteration of DPP?

You may be happy with these new announcements, and that is your right.

I am not.

For the record, 6D, 5D3 and 1DX isn't out of date.  Your skills will determine mostly if something is out of date or not.  And photography is not all about MP nor AF nor DR.  If you want the latest tech, maybe you should wait till photokina.  Who knows, Canon might make you happy, finally...
