Not per se, but announcing it on CR means you probably are........
Here is one of mine. Nothing spectacular (except that I myself am amazed at the richness of it, given that the lightconditions were un-ideal and very high contrast). I stack them in Merge to HDR Pro.. in Photoshop CS 6. Taking the pictures and stacking them is fine, my problem is what to do in the window that pop's up. Do any of you have any good links to tutorials for this tool in CS 6?

Love this Lens
More and more users keep reporting how much they enjoy and are satisfied by the 6D.
It just goes to show how an excellent camera cannot be seen beyond its specs by the spec sheet nazis who wanted to leave Canon as soon as it was announced.
I've had no issues with my 6D AF in real life. On the internet, I've found that it can't even capture pyramids in focus, and forget about getting a clean shot of a bride walking down the aisle.
According to the manual, the M Raw uses 11M pixels, so what I should have probably asked is if this is equivalent to a full RAW file shot with an 11m camera? I had a 5D, which was only 12M, and it still took beautiful photos, but it sounds like there is some degradation of the data to get the 20M pixel photo down to 11. Which probably doesn't make it worth it. Thanks for the help everyone.
What's 'wrong' is Canon's explanation of M RAW. It doesn't have 'all the advantages' of RAW because the data aren't raw. A RAW file is just that - the actual pixel luminance values with the color assignment from the CFA. The M RAW file is de-mosaiced and color interpolated (and 1/4 of the pixels are double-interpolated - their color value is interpolated from their already-interpolated neighbors).
Good question because why using an inferior raw file?
The purpose of getting the most of a picture is lost!
Some good explanations from Canon:
Hope it helps,
All is not in vain
If nothing else this thread has made me want to come over and see a couple of Western Grebes perform their mating dance.
Trouble is I don't intend to swim one handed whilst holding the camera up above the water, and I can't afford a 600mm lens
What to do ?
