It seems the 6D can be controlled by an Android or Iphone. That's pretty cool! People will make timelapps  : :P :P within the week. Remote LV anyone?

that can be done already, http://www.dslrbot.com/

I am currently using a 7d and my work now is almost entirely video based. Because of this I am interested in full frame and in a perfect world I would love the 5dmarkiii but the price tag means it's out of my reach for a while.
I wonder if this camera will offer me the things I need in the 5dmarkiii? Low light is a massive issue with my work and I know that the 5dmarkiii is near perfect at high iso. My 7d suffers badly from noise, even at mid iso levels.

I guess time will tell!

But then you need the transmitter? I was thinking with built in wi-fi it can be done directly. And you don't need line of sight.

Get a 5D2 for less than these 2 new FF cams.

Can I still buy new @ a bargain price?  Anyway, I'll patiently wait till we have some reviews.

As a Canon 7D owner who mostly shoots landscapes I have been holding out for a full frame camera for the last year.  This camera peaks my curiosity. I like the built in Wifi and GPS.  The most critical factor for me is the performance of the sensor.  If the DR is significantly improved then I will be very happy and will purchase as this allows me to keep my existing glass.  If, however, the DR still lags significantly behind the the new Nikon(s) then I'm going to wait to see what Canon's high megapixel camera will offer in terms of sensor performance. If neither camera impresses then Im going to switch to Nikon and either get the D600 (depending on how the sensor performs) or D800e.

if this product was released in isolation, I could be more exited about it. But let's face it, it is expensive since we have 5DmkIIs and even D700s out there which match or best this camera in many areas and can be had for far less money second hand. And compared to the D600 which throws
7D+ grade AF system
100 %VF
Dual SD slots
5.5 fps
4:2:2 HDMI out.
2016 px RGB meter
Higher resolution.

Then it makes you wonder if canon has goten over the hubris episode where it ignores competitor's line ups and counts on its customer-lock in to keep going.

At least it lowers the entry to the FF video crowd like nothing else does so its shortcomings as a photography tool won't matter to them. And I just admit, I didn't think this camera was real since it seemed too much of a reaction to a nikon rumor.

For a traveling Zeiss (and other manual/alt lens) shooter the 6D seems perfect, rugged enough but lighter and smaller than the 5D2/3.

It has interchangeable focusing screens, unlike the 5D3. Wifi/GPS I have no use for, but silent shooting mode is nice.

Also, getting robbed or smashing the camera to a rock somewhere will only hurt 60 % as much compared to the 5D3.

It will be interesting to see how the sensor performs, native iso 25600 sounds pretty good.

:)  I knew you'll say that.  I'm leaning now to D600 but I'm still crossing my fingers + toes that 6D sensor will be  better or at least perform somewhat close to D600.  I love Canon colors.  A lot of my friends are using Nikon but somehow they can't produce the colors of Canon.  A lot of them got D90 and D7000 but they still envy my pictures.  I'd hate to switch but as I said before, I'm at the crossroads.  Whatever I choose, I know I'll stick with it for a very long time.

Ah yes... Canon colors. Well, that's easy. Use the vivid setting on any other make of camera and there you are - Canon colors!

Oh and anyway - RAW format lets you fiddle with your colors as much as you like in post.

But the one thing canon has got going for it, its a pain to change. lenses are better and upgrading the body is simpler than changing systems. Also bodies are around what, 2-3 years? so even if it is not perfect some may still upgrade and have blinkers to the competition. It is more paramount for pros to have the best features as it could be the difference between being paid and not. But if we are talking amateurs just wanting to take pictures then not so much of an issue.


Lenses used to be better. Nowadays Nikon, Sigma and Tamron produce unquestionably good glass, especially for the amateur. And as an amateur, switching system is not that painful. My 2100$ are not going to a company which gives a camera that struggles against the 4 yo 1700$ 5D2.

Yes, this is still a popular misconception amongst Canon users - that Canon produces better glass than Nikon. The reality is different. Nikon lenses are every bit as good as Canon.
It may have been the case in 2004 when Nikon was still new on the DSLR market. But that was a long time ago.

Nope.  You can approximate but color gradations is still different.  A lot of Canon professionals will attest to that.  Vivid settings for landscape? Portrait settings, very different.  For landscape, you may argue that at vivid settings or more saturation/contrast/hue, you'll be able to approximate the colors for Canon and Nikon either way but for skin colors, I don't think so.

On a positive note, the presence of internal WiFi would probably compensate for the lack of an articulating screen. If Canon are smart, they would release a free software for PCs and mobile devices to enable full liveview control via a wireless connection.

Which is exactly what they have "done".  :)
