I am still waiting for mine(damn christmas can be frustrating ), but I would like to see a collection of images(just to confirm in my mind I have made the right call ). So go!!!!
Nice. Glad yours arrived and yes. Santa came and went and left his booty
Well. I finally got the R6 and had a very short window to have a play. Not a lot in our wildlife refuge but got a few shots to test the performance. First shot is a Bennets wallaby at long distance. Settings were ISO4000, f 6.3, 1/400sec at 600mm. Cropped to 3753x2111 for a grand total of 7.92mp.
Second shot is a female wren. Settings were ISO 1600, f6.3, 1/2500 at 600mm. Cropped to 2707x1805 for a total of 4.88mp.
Third shot is the same Wren. Settings were ISO 5000, f6.3, 1/2500 at 600mm. Cropped to 4706x2717 for a total of 11.07mp.
Overall despite the high ISO and deep cropping I am VERY happy with the sensor performance. Absolutely outstanding View attachment 194793 View attachment 194794 View attachment 194796
Whilst I appreciate this is a humorous comment, and I like it, I do think it illustrates a relevant point. People are relying on eye AF to the point that they are ignoring or forgetting how to control their AF to do what they want.Gorgeous!
So if eye AF doesn't work, what did you use on this? You'd think an animal cloaked in a focus chart would be a piece of cake for AF
Very true. When it does work (which is a LOT of the time) it is absolutely astounding. But when it doesnt (and we have to accept it will never be perfect all the time) we do need to know bow to achieve the desired results in other waysWhilst I appreciate this is a humorous comment, and I like it, I do think it illustrates a relevant point. People are relying on eye AF to the point that they are ignoring or forgetting how to control their AF to do what they want.
As you say focusing on a mobile AF chart should be simplicity itself, and it is, however relying on a single method to achieve that when nature has spent millions of years developing camouflage to mess with it seems strange. AF is like AE, the camera maker can't hope to know what I am trying to do and the more I push myself and my images the more often the camera can't keep up and I have to take control. Yet more and more often we see comments like 'the eye AF failed', of course it did, it will get better and better but it is just another tool in the toolbox, don't rely on it to the exclusion of everything else...
