6d beats 5d3 for long exposure +high ISO shooting
« on: July 20, 2013, 11:17:33 AM »
A highly specific kind of shooting, to be sure. Someone will no doubt have fun with the lens-cap-on part. But nevertheless, the difference is very noticable. Here is an interesting quick view:

Thanks for the link. Personally, I've made images of the nightsky with both cameras and to me, the difference is negligible. OTOH, my 6D showed up more hot pixels than the 5D3 for the same exposures.
Light is language!

My calculus was that this camera does all I wanted in a FF camera (portraits, candids, low light, light sports).  I plan to get 7d2 for sports.  The extra reach of a crop will work well for me as a non professional sports photog.

Interesting article.  And there is nothing silly about doing this type of test with the lens cap on.  I don't think it should be done any other way.
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

Intriguing. It does look convincing.
