EOS Bodies / Re: Where is the Canon EOS 6D Mark II?
« Last post by Sharlin on Today at 03:59:36 PM »
When there are many AF points, they become quite close to each other, lacking physical space for "cross type" in all of them.


Yeah, that's the geometry argument I alluded to. In the sensor photo it can be seen quite clearly why the leftmost and righmost columns of the peripheral groups only have horizontal-sensitive coverage. But see the 7D2 sensor layout which is a bit different:

In case anyone is interested, here is my latest contact issue with Canon.  I got an acknowledgement but no comment so far.  Previously, they have been responsive on issues.  My hope is that others will be motivated to try to get Canon to respond to issues.  If we don't try, what's the point in grumbling?! ;)

I have another issue I believe is quite important to a fair number of 1DX2 users.  We know the processing speed is very high and therefore it should be quite possible to implement the following.

When a burst is taken, say 4 shots, the last shot displays without any operator input.  Fine, but if you try to move back to the preceding 3 shots you have to first activate the shutter and then press view.  An irritant and time waster in the moment of action.  Furthermore, I have the multifunction-2 button programmed for magnify so I can instantly view with right hand only, my focus accuracy.  My left hand is holding a long heavy lens.

So the sequence is: fire the burst of 4 shots, hit M-fn 2 for magnify and roll the Quick Control dial wheel to view the previous 3 shots after viewing the first but NO, I have to first activate the shutter and then again hit the M-fn 2 button to see the previous 3.  This is very irritating and to my way of thinking unnecessary given the processing speed of the camera, would you not agree?

Please, please request a firmware update to correct this.  Thanks.

We've installed a rating system for posts.  This system lets administrators spot any abuse, which was the issue we had years ago with the SMF ratings.

At the bottom far right corner are two difficult to see buttons.  A thumbs up like button and a thumbs down icon.  They are difficult to see, so I'm looking for some easier to spot ones.  You will see them if I'm successful.

Great shots!

Were this the same air planes that hit the cable cam last Friday at the S:t Moritz alpine world ski championships (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ws0vxsu608Q)?

It was worth it. No one got hurt and the display and recording were breath-taking!

Lenses never match the theological MTF charts

I need him to check my typing, a spell checker doesn't catch these errors. ;)

With Canon rumored to make the body smaller and also add the VA Flip screen. Wonder if it may actually become a poly body like the 80D to further seperate it from the 5D line. I highly doubt it, but who knows.

It seems like a reasonable thing to do, the 6D shell is already half metal, half plastic. For most people the only difference between a mag alloy and polycarbonate body is the mental image. OTOH if they do move the 6D2 upmarket then maybe not after all.
