No kelvin WB on 6D! noooooOO!
« on: September 17, 2012, 02:01:20 PM »
At least according to B&H there is no kelvin WB. This is sad  for me since I always use kelvin for my productions.

Anybody have different information?

B&H is not the source of specifications, they copy what they think are the important specs from information Canon publishes.  Always refer to Cano for specsn before panicking.

I would assume it would have kelvin... it's been on practically every camera since the D30's and D60's...  I would wait until they pre-release the manual to confirm... 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

I believe now that it does have kelvin. The Canon page said it has "color temp" as a wb setting which i am assuming is kelvin.

Of course it does.  You already told us it does:

K = Kelvin, the SI base unit for temperature.

Whew!!!!

Scared me to death! You can't imagine how much time I put into getting my Kelvins just where they all need to be for shooting those polka-dotted possums. It's not as easy as you might think, nature lovers!
