Yes,
ANY help with Moire in video would be much appreciated. It is embarrassing :-[


This may help.  I doubt if it can come via software fix.

Atleast not yet, but I'm optimistic for a software/fw fix on the moire problem.

Interesting product but its expensive, that's 50mm 1.4 usm price. Besides aren't 6D's video just flatly considered crap by some standard? ???
Tsk! Come on son..

In theory f/8 AF capability should be easier to implement on the 6D center pt. than it is on the 5D3 & 1DX (longer linepair). Same with AI Servo AF point selected indicator, it should have been there from the get-go. How about uncompressed video out via HDMI, is that too much to ask for a $2K FF body? It's just disabled in the firmware anyway :P.
T3 is the bobn2 of Canon fanb0is.

<strong>Improvements coming?</strong><br />

We’re told that a firmware update for the EOS 6D will be coming in the May/June timeframe if things go to plan.</p>
<p>The biggest addition to the camera will be f/8 autofocus at the center point. The AI servo indicator <em>may</em> also be added.</p>
<p>The firmware will also include other bug fixes and tweaks.</p>

I don't have heard anything, and the 5d3 fw update indicates Canon will wait until the very last possible moment with something like this, *if* the 6d should get a fw refresh at all.

Personally I don't believe it, the 6d seems to be selling ok w/o f8 af, and anyone really believes the 6d will get the af servo indicator if the 5d3 hasn't got it? Yeah, right. For me, Canon should just fix the braindead fw crippling of the 6d like min. shutter speeds and the option to save the hdr source files...

+1 These are dumb "marketing" decisions, not engineering issues.

I think at some stage we will see an update for the 6D similar to the one the 7D got which not only fixed problems but added a whole host of new features....... how long this will take remains to be seen!!

But the 7d is the "top of the line" model, I cannot remember any minor model getting a real update with new features (anyone?), and the 6d is the budget ff model. Plus btw part of the "host of new features" on the 7d update were just backported from newer, but cheaper models like 60d - this is also not the case for the 6d. Imho if the 6d should get an update, then only due to a change in Canon corp policy...

I welcome any update for my camera, no matter how small.  I do get the feeling that there's more under the surface of the 6D than Canon is showing.  I love it, but there's always this feeling in the back of my mind that I got a gimped product.  I'm not really complaining though.  As long as it does everything I ask of it, I'm happy.  My next camera upgrade will definitely be something along the line of a 5DIV (unless a 6DII comes along that can see in the dark). ;D

HDR photos look best when I can't see them.

I am happy with the 6D as it is, I have found it to be superior to the 7D in picture quality and all round better than the 5D MkII. It may well be dumbed down so that people who pay extra for a Mk III certainly see some difference for the money.

The Wi-Fi functionality is also very useful an innovative, certainly was one of the factors I looked at when upgrading  from the 'top of the line' 7D.

It may be a budget FF but it is a Canon FF none the less and takes wonderful pictures and has low light perfomance yet to be equalled!!
