yes or no..6d for video...
« on: March 02, 2013, 11:39:19 AM »
hi,

i am reading a lot of reviews for the 6d everything is fine only the moire; So i am a little bit
confused, currently using the t3i i am planning to switch for a ff body, specially also
for video..

yes the 5d mark III is the best solution but also the most expensive, how is the 6d compared to the 5d mark II?

or is the moire like the t3i on the 6d? i can buy the 6d with a good lens for the price of the 5d mark III body, also
there are good bargains for the 5d mark II...

thx

No, for video you want the 5D. There are numerous threads and examples of the moire issues with the 6D on this forum.

As Roger says, at the moment the 6D has quite a considerably downfall for use in Video with the Moire, and less functionality in controlling the audio settings

look at around 4minutes on this review

with various reviews of the 6D video stuff, I can only presume a lot of post-processing was done on this

If 6D not good, when 550D, 600D, 60D, 7D, 5D Mark II, etc... also not good, with which until now people creating nice and interesting stuff, and 6D have more advantage in video than any of those.

I believe there is an aftermarket in-the-camera-body filter available to improve video from the 6D.  If most of your work will be stills, this might be a viable and cost-effective option.

Canon isn't really the place to be if your are only going to use the DSLR for video.

Yep, especially since Black Magic just announced a micro 4/3 camera for $995, and they have their BMCC for $2995.

New update by Dave Dugdale:
 
Canon 6D vs Canon 5D Mark III Which One to Buy

I know the BMPCC is coming out but will it match Canon for that "feel" so many of us as well as the general public like?  I've been in various forums gathering opinions on the GH3 vs. 5D 3 and those who own both are pretty fair, but still many give it to Canon (although they wish it was as sharp as GH3)

Dave's video really made me think.  What would I really be missing as an amateur hobbyist from the 5D that I couldn't get in the 6D.  If I got the VAF filter and the 6D it'd still be like 800 less than the 5D 3.

Are there any truly compelling arguments to stay away from the 6D?

+1, unless you're talking about the C100/C300
5DIII/5DII/Bunch of L's and ZE's, currently rearranging.

No, not the 6D for video. Too much aliasing and moire. If it is going to be a Canon, then the 1DX is definitely the best and the 5D3 the next best. The others won't do much for you.

VAF filter for 365 is still 700 less than 5D with same video quality.

If it is budget problem, then 6D, except for the less pro control the 6d have as good or even better quality comparing to the 5d3. ( except the Moire problem)

The VAF filter blurs frame corners with short focal lenses...
