Hey guys,

Just got back from a gruelling 14hr wedding.

All i can say is wow... the 6DMKII handled flawlessly and the tilt screen came in handy in so many shots! The high ISO is incredible and the low light AF... put it this way both blow the doors off a 5DMKIII I don't think the AF missed once on the dance floor this evening.

Now I have got used to using the two dial AF point selection method I think its actually faster than using the joystick and really enjoyed using this technique.

Auto ISO was very intelligent and I love the focal length minimum shutter speed. Actually didn't realise the 7DMKII had it also so used it all day and honestly is one less thing to think about. Situations unfold at 100 million miles an hour and its so nice to know that you won't get caught out. Although it doesn't work so well with standard telephotos 24-70mm for example it will shoot in that range so you can't rely on it for freezing action. Had to watch that.

Will have a look at the images tomorrow.

Very very happy performed fantastically. Above and beyond what I expected.

The camera has been slated but dam did it perform well, the feel, weight and how responsive it is I really feel this is a big improvement on the 5DMKIII I got shots today which weren't possible to me with that camera and it has made my job a lot easier.

Loved it so much I'm pretty sure I shot over 2000 images with it and I took 3 cameras....

That's wonderful to hear but the proof is in the pudding, still to be eaten. ;)

Must say I'm not surprised.

I'm not the most qualified but I'll say it'll be wonderful, it just might not be the "best".  The question then becomes, are you a person that just have to have the best.  I shot lovely landscapes with the 6D, but maybe a DR expert would dispute it.  Who cares, everyone I show my photos to absolutely love them.  Isn't that what matters?  Of course if you're making money with the camera my perspective may not be totally correct. :)

Ok guys managed to get these uploaded to Flickr to share with you guys.

Experience was extremely positive, I don't think its playing overly well with my 24-70 F2.8 L MKI in terms of AF but all my other lenses I had no issue with at all 70-200mm F2.8 MKII and 16-35mm F2.8 MKII.

All i can say is wow... the 6DMKII handled flawlessly and the tilt screen came in handy in so many shots! The high ISO is incredible and the low light AF... put it this way both blow the doors off a 5DMKIII I don't think the AF missed once on the dance floor.

Although it doesn't work so well with standard telephotos 24-70mm for example it will shoot in that range so you can't rely on it for freezing action. Had to watch that and have now altered it to one stop. It would be nice if you could set minimums for lenses as three lenses I use the most is the trinity and obviously on the wide end if you let it shoot at a shutter speed matching focal length you get in trouble.

Very very happy performed fantastically. Above and beyond what I expected.

The camera has been slated but dam did it perform well, the feel, weight and how responsive it is I really feel this is a big improvement on the 5DMKIII I got shots which weren't possible to me with that camera and it has made my job a lot easier.

Helps to have a really awesome venue. Calthwaite Hall, Cumbria UK.

Here are some images

These two shot are so hard to shoot with the viewfinder, most brides can't really sit down when they have had their dress corseted so you have to get a really big chair or get them to sit by a window but this isn't always possible so using the tilt screen made this really easy, just touched the screen to focus and shoot. Just have to be careful as you don't have the three points of contact with the camera you have to make sure your shooting fast enough.

The shutter speeds are a little low in these shots but kept the ISO down. I would like preferred to be in the 1/60-80th as above now set this up a stop so at 24mm for example minimum will be 1/60th.

ISO 1600 looking really good

Cheeky 10,000 ISO at the end

Really pleased with the results. Hope you like them and they are helpful. These are full size and resoltion so have a look on Flickr to zoom around. No noise reduction added didn't think it needed it apart from the 10,000.

Cheers

Terrific pictures Tom,
glad the 6DII works so well for you  :) after your 5DIII was nicked :(

Did you take long to get used to using tilt-flip screen - being used to 5DIII / 7DII?

Thank you! I've had a 70D for about 2 years now it feels like a 70D with a FF sensor so not really it seems pretty natural to use the screen and comes more in handy in more situations than you would imagine!
