The First Canon EOS 6D Video Footage
« on: November 28, 2012, 11:11:21 AM »
From a Preproduction Camera
The first video footage from Johnnie Behiri from the soon to be available worldwide Canon EOS 6D. It’s noted that this is from a preproduction camera and improvements may be seen with the released camera.

Strengths and weaknesses noticed by Mr Behiri.

  • Camera strengths:
  • Full frame sensor
  • Clean high ISO in video mode (1250 is very mush usable).
  • Manual audio adjusting
  • PAL/NTSC

Camera weakness:

  • Severe moire
  • Soft image
  • No headphone socket
  • No audio through HDMI while recording (for monitoring audio on new EVF’s)
  • No clean HDMI output
Checkout the footage yourself and see what you think.

severe moire AND a soft image; that's quite the lovely combo. Usually you accept one in exchange for not getting the other

Watching the video full screen is does not seem HD sharp is this the high ISO, poor lens, bad conversion to web video or is it really just this soft?

Regardless what Dpreview said about the 6D high ISO Vs 5D III, I don't believe 6D will perform better than 5D III in high or low ISO. I'm talking about IQ of course.

Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 16-35L f4 IS -- 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 200L f2 IS -- 400L f2.8 IS II

Canon says, "BUY A 5DIII for video!"

That about sums it up perfectly.  There is no reason for the 6D video quality to be any worse than the 5D3 (very similar sensor, same processor, encoding, etc), but then there would be no reason to buy a 5D3 over the 6D for video shooting.   Hence the lack of auto monitoring, and possibly a lesser moire reduction/sharpening algorithm.

I'm a stills shooter, so I don't care much, but if I did video I think the Blackmagic Cinema Camera is by far the best "low cost" option on the market.

I'd rather eat some of the chocolates that were shown in the sample video than own the 6D.

Mmmm...chocolate.

I don't shoot much video, but I definitely saw lots of moire. I hesitate to say it's worse than my 5d2, but it's still very bad. Didn't seem particularly great quality to me. The 35mm T/1.5 Samyang/Rokinon/Bower lens is more interesting to me, although I'd get the standard photo version since I rarely shoot any video.

which ever ways you translated.....the IQ of 6D will not out perform 5D III. Don't expect too much from entry level model.

Am no fan of video, so I don't care, but there do seem to a lot of variables possibly not controlled by the test, so... this may be better than we think it is... Not time to dump our canons overboard yet... We must hold true!!! :)


What is truth?
