My Question: Would it worth the money to buy the 6D? Is the 6D faster than the 60D?

Given the basic level of research you did before asking, no, it's probably not "worth it" for you. If you're rather short on money, an "upgrade" should be driven by a very pressing need to improve in certain photography aspects. Since the video of the 6d is horrible, that leaves stills - what are the situations/settings your 60d fails, what are your lenses?

Horrible?  Are we talking moire, fps options... I think horrible might be overstating it a bit.

227
When I owned my 60d I would shoot using the center af point and the servo mode... if you plan on doing that with the 6d, it should be fine.  But you lose 2 fps & you also lose the perceived reach of the crop sensor. 

I think the 6d is a very good upgrade from the 60d, but it all depends on how you use it.

228
While I'm asking dumb questions... why aren't we just using hdr multiple exposures to capture some of our missing dynamic range... sure if the subject is moving... but it was a living room.

229
I could take a picture of my ass with the A7 and there'd be "X" amount of dynamic range.

I could take a picture of a smiling baby with my 60D...not as much.

Which would you rather BEHOLD?

IT'S NOT ABOUT THE DAMN DATA!

It all depends on whose ass...

The conclusion of this particular subject is that the A7R files handles shadow recovery better than the 5D3 files at the ISO used. This is a fact, not a theory, no matter what the subject or conditions.

Sure.  We've all known that for quite a while...years, in fact.  So of course, jrista's conclusion was utterly banal.  If you're a fan of entirely predictable 'experiments' perhaps you'd like to drop an object – tennis ball, apple, your camera – from a couple of meters above the ground, and verify the existence of gravity.  Be sure to start a new forum topic to educate all of us on your findings.

Yeah, but how do you explain a feather not falling straight down, but seemingly soaring above the clouds.

What was the dynamic range of film?  I'm curious if digital has surpassed film in that regard.

I'm eligible to sell in that section, but I didn't sell anything during the beta. 

I though I got a message that the beta was ending soon, but I'm not sure exactly when the end date is.

Where are you keeping the Irish whiskey?  Good Lord... you can't traverse the countryside without some medicinal libations.

Sl1 and the m are light weight .  If you feel the need for a backup with you, I'd suggest one of those.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: My new toy, Best of monopod in my Idea.

Video.  I have the fluid head but I haven't used it yet.  I'm fond of it... but I WANTED to love it... I think longer feet without the ball would make me happy, but I did use the ball to get the shaft perpendicular to the ground, so I'm complaining for very little reason.

I picked up a manfrotto with the feet... the 5d mkiii plus a lens unstable if the monopod is extended... but if I keep the neck strap around my neck... I minimize the risk of it falling due to being unbalanced. 

I tightened the ball and it isn't bad, but I feel as though I am lubing it up on the ball to keep it firm, but smooth.

It is heavy... but nothing a trip  or two to three gym can't solve.


Do you have the one i have, or the video version with the semi pivoting feet?  Mines pretty stable as long as it's in controlled environments...  and that's with my 5d3 and 24-105...  When using the 70-200, i have the collar so it's more balanced

Quick question... more of a subjective question... but the first two photos.... I look at them and think... could use a touch more contrast.  Is it a matter of personal preference, or did you have a specific vision... maybe because it was cloudy you wanted the scene to reflect that?

Back at the Track.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Posting about sensors and DR!
« on: September 29, 2014, 03:23:20 PM »
Here's my stance on the whole dr issue.  I'm not a good enough photographer to where I notice and consequently would miss the mysterious dynamic range.  When I shoot with a Canon xs, I managed some good did.  Ditto with the 60d and now my 5d mkiii.  I've even managed some really nice shots with an old xti that I have to my daughter. 

So the shots are out there... it's my job to find them... and gear plays a part... but not so much that I blame my gear over my personal ineptitude... but that's just me.  I don't miss this emperor's clothes... not because I am part of the blind masses, but rather because I'm looking at the peasant girl with the big cans wondering if she will let me paint her with light.

Lenses / Re: 50mm f/1.4 Canon vs. Sigma
« on: September 28, 2014, 02:39:11 PM »
We are talking about the original sigma, not the art, right. Dogs your body have auto focus micro adjust?

I never shot the Canon 50 below f2.8, so I'm a marginal resource l at best... but the old Sigma would be poor with afma because the lens needed more than 20 units of afma...

The art has problems with peripheral auto focus points... and the Canon is soft wide open.  So it's a give and take.

The 85mm might just be a good match with your body... manufacturing tolerances...

I have 2... I wouldn't mind 3... after all is said and done... maybe I'll wind up with 5.
