Software & Accessories / Re: Focal for Mac beta released Sept 14th

GREAT news!  I was holding off because of this (and the 60D isn't compatible, so I can only calibrate the 5DmkII)

This is an exciting development.  Up next: iphone-based calibration  ;D

It's nice on a personal level but it's just another piece of organizational data, much like most of the EXIF data.  If, at some point, you want to gather all shots from location X, you can do so over the years.

In the end, it doesn't have a direct commercial application that I can see, aside from if you need to tell someone where something was, you have to look it up on a map, as opposed to have it typed in already.

I am a Canon user and have been for the past 10 years.  I don't really want to switch to Nikon - I like the Canon form factor and am relatively happy with the kit I have.  That said - I do feel that Canon has been holding back features for 2-3 years and that Nikon has been offering more for the same or less money.

I am a long time reader here...  I just wanted to voice my opinion on the matter with a little humor...
Post some photos and share your experiences and knowledge.  I apologize for being rude, its just that a new announcement brings out the trolls in droves.  They post a couple of critical comments and we never hear from them again.

I'm with "IBTL"boy . . . I don't see any trolls here . . .

Incidentally, do you all know that we can sequentially read posts that you've added and see if, for example, Nikon is an addiction of choice?

(Yes, I've been playing a bit of Gimley myself lately; odd what one does with an infestation)

"Trolling"

As in for Trolls  ;D  Honestly, they released it to make everyone on the forum that already doesn't like Canon mad.

Seriously, the same fifteen people are beating the same drum on 8 different threads.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon Announces the Canon EOS 6D DSLR

Okay, so nonstop complaining aside, here's a thought:
Wouldn't it have made sense to release an "L" version of an STM lens with this?

Oh thank goodness we got some Nikon posts on the first page.  I guess that guy from SoHo was sleeping, but you guys got our back!

I'm gonna go sell all my gear and switch to Nikon now.

So has anyone CONFIRMED that there is no MFA or are we just playing chicken little?

I think it's time craig updates the main post with a BUSTED note.

Lots of people pointing out wifi isn't going to happen, GPS probably the same.  As I mentioned, SD makes NO sense placed between a 5D and 7D.

Most people are just jumping in new here to fan the Nikon fervor or bemoan some of the other made-up specs . . .

It's just another slow news day now that Apple doesn't have a top secret ipad fourteen to stir up BS about.

I'd be more interested in a firmer date than firm specs at this point, considering we'd know how reliable the spec lists are.

Honestly, I hope they include a pop-up flash like the 7D as well, but it wouldn't be a deal breaker.

They couldn't (well, wouldn't) make a xD series that's smaller than the 7D.

I'm not going to get too lathered up about any specs either until CR gives it a CR2 or CR3.  I highly doubt SD will happen since the 7D uses CF like the 5D . . . I think an articulating screen (which I like because I can protect the screen AND turn it off by manually flipping it inside) is as likely if SD makes it into the camera.

I'm gonna call this myth busted :D

If these are the same caliber as the 24-70, we may very well have an 'affordable' L alternative provider on our hands.

I've gotta start selling some equipment to get the wife off my back before the next big wave of purchases  ;D

But, the D600 is like a bazillion dollars more, and, like NIKON.

Cue the guy from that 80's song from old SoHo.

Wow, $2,100 and Nikon doesn't even give you a full metal body?  I hope Canon isn't so cheap with the magnesium alloy.  You can get the 7D for $1200 and the body is a tank.  Hopefully the 6D will be the same. :-\

7D, built like a tank, but rebel-like IQ.  Even 650D is better.  :(

As long as there are people who think a 4 year old 5D Mark II is just as good as a brand new D600, Canon has NOTHING to worry about...

But they do, actually their worry is that the 5d2 is just too good to make an easy profit with a "real" successor 6d - either it'll be too expensive to people will still get a 5d3 or 5d2 as long as possible, or it'll be too inexpensive cutting profits.

I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic . . . implying that those that look at actual images and performance are mindless automatons, unlike people that buy the newest thing with 3 more pixels :)

Okay, so where's that "it's gonna be $1500, canon's gonna poop their pants" guy now?

So, we've got a camera that's $300 more than and basically a 'single step up' from the 4 year old canon.  I'll pass.

Seriously, 6D could simply be what was posted: 7D AF, digic V+ FF and sell for $2500 without issue. 

Boy, I'm glad we were prepared with thread-upon-thread about how this camera was going to put Canon out of business  ::)

Enjoy your onion rind bokeh with the Tamron.

Well, the Canon mk2 has it too (but to a lesser extent), ye know? But don't let get facts in the way.


I think you're spot-on here; I think the *real* news is that the Tamron is so dang sharp.

Anyone with a hair of faith (maybe gullibility) could have believed the part about the Canon II being the sharpest, since that's pretty much what they said.  Yes, yes, we shouldn't blindly believe it, but now that we have confirmation, it's sort of obvious :)

Honestly, I think the Tamron is going to be an excellent candidate for the "only own one lens" crowd, even with it's price.
