    A small, capable, conservative full-frame DSLR ideal for new buyers, December 7, 2012

    This review is from: Canon EOS 6D 20.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD (Body Only) (Electronics)

    This camera has top-tier image quality in a polished, compact package well-suited to travel. Those upgrading from a 5D II or 7D may prefer the sharp response and focusing performance of the 5D III. Buyers without an investment in the Canon system may find Nikon’s D600 a better value.

    I’ve finally had enough of a hands-on with this camera to draw some conclusions about it. My main body is a 5D II and I’ve owned or used almost all of Canon’s crop bodies.

    HANDLING AND NEW FEATURES:

    Build quality on first impression is similar to the 60D and 5D II. Solid enough, with a slightly narrower grip than most previous Canon bodies, those two inclusive, but still comfortable to my large hands. This body is petite for full-frame, about 10% smaller by volume than the 5D II and 15% under the 5D III. Weight is similarly svelte, below every 5D and the 7D, and about even with the 60D. The larger cameras will balance a bit better with heavy lenses; this 6D will be the preferable travel body by a small margin.

    New relative to the 5D II are improved weather sealing and a much-appreciated mode dial lock. It’s not clear how comprehensive the sealing is; I still wouldn’t take it in the rain, and very few non-L Canon lenses are weatherproof. The LCD screen has a fatter aspect ratio and somewhat better contrast. As seems to be the new Canon norm, the 6D has mushy buttons that activate at some indeterminate point.

    Novel, however, is the button layout. The top panel retains the 60D’s configuration of four buttons, each with one function. The 5D series, 7D, and prior XXD models have three buttons with two functions per. You lose direct adjustment of flash exposure compensation and white balance, but frankly, most people will find this simplified layout preferable. I still forget which dial controls which function on my 5D II. The rear panel looks superficially like the 60D with the same right-hand bias, though the functionality has been shifted around. A mitigating factor is that, as on the 7D, 60D, and subsequent bodies, you can bind custom functions to many buttons. I didn’t find it a major trial to adapt from the 5D II, but you’ll definitely want to spend a few days with it before you have to work under pressure. Rebel owners will find the adjustment more significant.

    This 6D has a single SD card slot. The 5D II uses CF, which is rapidly becoming the purview of only high-end bodies. CF is faster, harder to lose, and costs more. SD is fast enough for a body in this speed class. This is nonfactor unless you have a sizeable collection of the opposing format. The 5D III has a dual slot that can speed some workflows and provide media redundancy.

    Like all Canon full-frame DSLRs, this body doesn’t have a popup flash. I’m not lamenting the absence, it was a bone to casual shooters more than a serious tool. Max sync speed for most Canon bodies is around 1/200, so integrated flash only works for outdoor fill with narrow apertures. Indoors as a main light source, the tiny size and close proximity to the lens lead to red eyes and a flat, unflattering high-contrast look. A much preferable setup for any Canon DSLR pairs a 430EX or 580EX, ideally diffused or aimed to bounce off a nearby surface.

    Shutter lag now rivals the 5D III and 40D-7D, a few ticks quicker than the 5D II and any of the Rebels. Mirror blackout time is a more significant improvement, though still not quite level with the 5D III. The 5D II has a similar continuous-shooting rate and a more sluggish feel. Of greater interest: like the 5D III, the 6D now has a ‘silent’ shooting mode that lowers the volume and pitch of the mirror clunk by half. Every wedding I’ve ever shot would have benefited from that.

    The screen interface follows the mold of every Canon body since the 40D. It has a series of horizontal tabs with options. The major UI change is that instead of 9 tabs that also scroll vertically, you get 15 that don’t. The advantage is that you can rapidly wheel through tabs and see everything there is to see without scrolling; the disadvantage is that it looks intimidating and there are multiple tab groups of the same icon. The ‘Creative’ modes show every tab. Some are hidden in Program and Auto modes. We’ve come full-circle since the original 5D, which had a handful of tabs and piles of scrolling.

    A major new feature also common to the 5D III is a better implementation of Auto-ISO. It’s often the case in changing light where you want to shoot a lens wide open for subject isolation, but with a fixed or minimum shutter speed so you won’t risk motion or hand blur. On the 5D II, that was a no-go; Auto-ISO didn’t work in Manual mode, and the minimum shutter chosen in the other modes was too low. This camera will do Auto-ISO in M between any lower and upper bound you choose. Or you can set a minimum shutter for Av or P mode. Wonderful and overdue, this.

    6D vs 5D Mark III and Nikon D600, October 28, 2012

    This review is from: Canon EOS 6D 20.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD (Body Only) (Electronics)

    Just received a 6D as a backup to my 5D Mark III. I am not going to bore you with the specifications that you can Google to find. I know most of you are reading this because you are getting into an entry level full frame camera or go straight to pro. Among your choices are Canon 6D, 5D Mark III and Nikon D600 which I will cover here. As for the D800, you can find lots of reviews online which I won’t get into here. This review will be a side by side comparison of the actual photos.

    ISO noise comparison
    After spending the night taking several comparison photos at ISO 3200 F4 1/125, 6400 F4 1/500, 12800 F4 1/250 and 25600 F4 1/1000, here is my conclusion. Photoshop enlarged at 350% shows the 6D has about a one stop advantage over the 5D Mark III and 1-1/2 stop over the Nikon D600. That did not come as a surprise since the 6D has the lowest resolution among the 3 DSLR.

    Update 12/7/2012: When these photos were reviewed in raw, I discovered the 6D filter setting is different, making it looked like it had lower noise. The 6D and 5D Mark III are in fact only about half stop better in ISO performance when compared in raw and one stop better than the Nikon D600.

    Auto Focus
    5D Mark III is the fastest, then D600 then 6D. There are all very close and hard to tell even when they are in dark condition. All 3 shows remarkable speed handling focus. 6D occasionally will hunt for split seconds. D600 and 5D both have no hesitation locking in especially the 5D. To test how fast each focuses, I listened to the motor sound of the lens until it stopped.

    Auto White Balance
    5D Mark III and 6D both have excellent auto white balance and the color under different lighting condition showed the true color. Nikon D600 however has a greenish or yellowish tone depending on the Kelvin, turning a red rose into orange under fluorescent light. This can be corrected of course under Lightroom but quite difficult adjust on the camera.

    View Finder
    5D Mark III has similar view finder as the 6D and both are brighter than the D600. This makes it a lot easier to focus especially in poor light. This is a big deal for my aging eyes and the brighter view finder is truly helpful on the Canon. I believe this is due to larger mirrors used in the Canons. The 6D does not have the 100% view but since I am not a pro, it really does not bother me.

    Weight
    The 6D is the lightest of the 3 cameras but the 6D does not feel cheap in the hands. There is lots of advange of being light especially I am going to use it on an Octocopter for aerial videos and photos.

    Edge sharpness
    6D clearly leads here. May be Canon has improved the image processing firmware here. 5D is not too far from the 6D but beats the D600.

    Resolution
    There is not much of a difference in the mega pixel of these camera, at least not enough to tell the difference even on a 24 inch monitor.

    Video
    Updates 2/24/2013
    I have compared all 3 cameras extensively in video. Most of my videos were aerial shots from a Turbo Ace X88 octocopter under some air turbulence. So it will be a good test on their performance. First, I found there is no difference on the rolling shutter between the 3 cameras. The DSLR all still suffer this problem and this is where some of the cinema cameras such as the Red Scarlet/Epic shine. As for the moire and aliasing the Mark III is the clear winner. I barely notice any moire and aliasing on the roof tops and power lines. If you are going to do video on a more professional level which I am not, you should stick with the Mark III unless you invest on a Red or something surprisingly affordable like the Black Magic. As for the dynamic range, the D600 excels among the 3 cameras but by a narrow margin. The D600 has about 11.5 stops and the Mark III/6D are at 11 stops. The Red scarlet/Black Magic has 14 stops and shoots in 4K/2K which makes it more ideal than any DSLR for video. My only problem shooting video with the Red is flight time as it weights about 10 pounds with the gears. If my Octocopter struggles to keep it in the air, imaging what it is going to do to your arms. Now I am waiting on the new Turbo Ace CineWing 8 octocopter which will carries up to 25 pounds of payload with longer flight time, according to the specs so to speak. I should be able to achief 10-15 minutes flight time with Mark III and about half that for the Red Scarlet/Epic. It is exciting how these multi rotor copters give me room to creat and allow me to view the world in a different perspective. I will keep you updated on the aerial photo/cinematography technology with some breath taking aerial photos/video.

    A Worthy Upgrade for a Canon Rebel User, December 31, 2012

    Canon 6d Review

    I’ve now been using my 6d for a bit over a week and feel that I’ve handled it enough to write a comprehensive review. First, let me tell you that I upgraded from a Rebel T2i, which I absolutely loved. I’m by no means a pro, and I don’t typically get paid for my work; but I would classify myself as a photo enthusiast. I travel a lot and size and weight were factors in my decision to go with the 6d. I also like to shoot with available light, which is why I wanted to go full frame for the high ISO performance. For some reason it says I purchased the body only, but I actually bought the kit.

    Let me address some of the “cons” that people are complaining about right out of the gate. I’m going to assume that most people considering the 6d are like me – looking to upgrade from a nice point and shoot style camera or a Rebel series or other APS-C style DSLR. Nearly everything that people are stating are “cons” I never had on my Rebel in the first place, so I don’t miss these features. The AF system has gotten a lot of attention, but on my Rebel, I used the center point 90% of the time for focusing. The center point on the 6d is just amazing. It focuses in an almost completely dark room. Certainly it will be able to focus for any situation when you are going to shoot hand held. I will take the simplified control of 11 AF points and an absolutely fantastic center focus point over 61 points (caveat: I don’t shoot sports or other fast moving objects so I wouldn’t really benefit from the addition points for tracking a moving subject).

    I rarely, if ever, shoot video so not having a headphone jack doesn’t bother me in the slightest. Also, not having a built in flash is no big deal to me either. I’m going to assume that people looking at this price range for a camera have an external flash and understand the limitations of a built in flash. I never used the one on my Rebel anyway. Finally, not having two SD card slots doesn’t seem like a big loss to me. While I think the redundancy of two slots might be nice, I’ve never had an SD card fail on me and perpetually back up my images anyway.

    24-105mm f/4 Kit Lens:
    Honestly this was probably what was holding me back the most about going full frame. I previously have been using the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS and I have to say that better than 90% of my pictures taken with my T2i were shot using this lens. While the 17-55 doesn’t have a red ring or L in its name, it defiantly can run with the L glass. I worried that going from a relatively fast 2.8 (EF-S lenses do not fit on the 6d) to an f/4 would be limiting, but I also didn’t want to give up IS and the 24-70mm was out of my price range anyway. Let me say that given the higher ISO performance, I don’t really miss the stop I lost going to an f/4 lens. I actually like having a bit more reach with the 24-105. I would defiantly have kept my 17-55 f/2.8 if I could have, but I also don’t feel limited by the 24-105 f/4. In the future I plan to get the 16-35 f/2.8 for use alongside the 25-105 f/4. So in summary, if you are like me and hesitating about giving up your 17-55mm f/2.8 for the 24-105 f/4, don’t worry – the kit lens is fantastic and you won’t regret going full frame for a second.

    ISO Performance:
    Let me sum it up in one word: amazing. I hate noisy pictures and I’d hesitate to shoot much above ISO 400 with my T2i. I have no problem shooting at 3200-6400 with the 6d. I took some shots basically in the dark at 25,600 and they were defiantly usable. Low light performance is just amazing. I can’t comment on how it compares to other full frame cameras, but I do know there is just no comparison between APS-C sensors and this one.

    Auto ISO on this camera is awesome. I never used Auto ISO on my T2i (as I said above I hate noisy images and didn’t like the camera constantly trying to push up the ISO). The Auto ISO on this camera lets you set a minimum shutter speed (great for people, like myself, who rarely use a tripod). It brings the shutter down to (near) the minimum, and then starts to the boost the ISO. Additionally (like most SLR’s) you can set the maximum and minimum Auto ISO speeds.

    Autofocus:
    I touched on this above, but for its limitations, I actually like the AF system. I shoot mostly still subjects in available light and absolutely love the center AF point and its ability to focus in near dark conditions. AF is fast and of the few hundred pictures I’ve taken so far, hasn’t missed yet. I like the simplicity of the 11-point AF system. I find the 61-point system hard to navigate. Coming from a Rebel, the AF system is very similar so there was really no learning curve when going to the 6d.

    Design & Button Layout:
    The 6d is surprisingly small and light. It’s honestly not much bigger than my T2i, and only slightly heavier. It defiantly doesn’t feel cheap though. It…
