there is no contrast to the subject.

Did you not read my previous posts...?
When the center point cant grab focus for that reason, and I try and switch to the outer points, its a hit or miss if they will grab focus..even in areas with enough contrast to do so. I can switch cameras on the tripod mind you, put the same lens on, and the 7d doesn't have the issue...so no..its not technique either...
I have read of others having the same issue as well, so I'm not alone.
Issue with Camera....thought about that...Canon says no...lens has been checked to...
Thankfully most of the time, I can get away with using only the center point...but still

They can't hit everyone's expectations every time.

You're right, they cant, and I don't expect them to. My issue has always been that the 6d AF was purposely crippled even compared to an older camera...so it's not like the technology was too new to put it in the camera. Somebody made the conscious decision at Canon to do it. Heck, if Canon had just put in the same outer points as the older 7d, I seriously don't think there would be many that have an issue with AF at all...

Yes I know, some still would...but that's life

Hey Canon you listening...!

Well, we totally agree on that point. Canon spent money developing a new, lesser AF system specifically for the 6D. I do like that it can AF at -3EV. A 70D/7D-like system that worked at -3EV would have been better on this camera. (Then what excuse would I have to buy the 1DIV? FPS, I suppose.)

I hope they are... or the 6D2 will fail.

Lol the T4i, which has all cross type points, was released the same year as the 6D.

Yup....this is why the 6D was never on my radar. The difference with the 5DII is that it was the best the technology could deliver at the time so we sort of accepted the shortcomings. The expectations are, and should be, different now.

I "almost" can't believe we are discussing whether or not we need af or if the af on the 6d is crippled.

Still love my 6D... it does 90% of what I need and when it's not the best tool I switch to the 7D2.

One body to rule them all is a myth, unless you have the coin for a 1Dx2 and even then I'm sure you'll find some people that are not even satisfied.


EXACTLY what I do... It's a great combo..

Sometimes I sort of wish they would slow down their iterations a little and put a bit more (even if that more is just more progress in terms of sensor tech) into each one, probably not good for sales though.

If they do go for the andoid OS that should be really interesting. With the work the people at ML do who knows what crazy stuff we'd see. If it is an android OS hoepfully they can bump up the processing power a bit (brb running starwalk/stellarium/in​stagram/pokemon go). What about a sim card slot for mobile data? Ok too far? They do like to pack gadgets into some of these models. Touch screen?

I wonder if they will stay with the SD slot or move to 1 or 2 microSD slots.

Android is a non starter.

I'm almost positive I'll regret asking, but:

What is Android OS?

Why does it matter in a camera?

What runs Canon cameras now?

Google developed Android as an operating system for phones and tablets. They license it (very close to free, if not in fact totally free) to phone manufacturers to run their devices. Google benefits by being able to sell advertising and collect user data.

Canon has developed their own proprietary operating system (OS) that runs the internal workings of the processors, buffer and removable storage, as well as the user interface you see when you press the menu button.

Android does a fine job for what it is, but its popularity also makes it a target for hackers. It is a fairly common occourance to see a rogue app descovered to be sending data back to some foreign operatives.

If Canon were to use Android to run its cameras they would have to completely reengineer the software. And for what benefit? I don't get that rumor at all.

The OS in Sony cameras is Android based. They have some apps you can add to the camera and a lot of them are really good. I.e. the smooth reflections app emulates long exposures and eliminates the need for ND filters.

Realistic improvements/upgrades IMO will be


Tilting LCD screen (70D)
Slightly higher resolution (24-28 MP)
Increased AF points
Dual Pixel AF technology
Anti Flicker

Gold Canon Box
