I took the camera out today, waved it around and it did some nice things :)

These are great, Kev. They really show off the capabilities of both you and the camera. I could never have hand-held at 1/50 with the combo! Happy memories too for you and Jake.

Having seen some of your work Annie, methinks you undersell yourself. Of course you could, don't forget, this is an image stabilised lens you are talking about which I have found in the past is very helpful indeed at times.

Thanks, but like Chris Says, Annie, don't undersell yourself. IS has a lot going for it and the 100-400 in particular has amazing IS. I've actually had acceptable shots at 400mm at 15th sec with that lens

Wonderful European car show at the beach in Jupiter, Florida every year to benefit local wildlife sanctuary. Hundreds and hundreds of vintage and newer Euro cars. Great stuff.

Well, thanks guys, maybe I'll go out and try it! (Not at the shinty, though.) Watch this space :lol:

Had a spot of bother involving a heavy tea mug and my 6D - just don't ask! I had managed to smash the LCD in the top cover and damage the control buttons, the rest of the camera was ok. Having been a former precision electronics engineer, I decided to get a new part and fix it myself. Parts suitably acquired, camera stripped down, and parts replaced. Camera is now back and working again.

For those interested, the "weather sealing" is virtually non-existent on the 6D, and there are several places where water can easily ingress IMHO. I thought I'd been reasonably careful with mine, and had always wiped off any rain splashes, but I found evidence around the seams between panels of water ingress. It hadn't caused any damage as it had not reached any electronic parts, but a cautionary tale for those taking the camera out in rain or snow.

The worst areas I found were around the lens mount and the lens lock button, followed by the baseplate and then the joint behind the viewfinder eye cup. All cleaned up ok, but again beware, these are clearly vulnerable areas. No pics to show of the water marks alas, but you won't be too surprised to hear my key interest was getting the camera back together before I lost one of the many many screws, of which few are the same size!

Sorry, images not taken with a 6D, but they are pics OF a 6D :lol:

Thanks for the heads-up and happy to learn from your mishap! I take mine out in all weathers but will be more careful in the future. Would you mind pouring a mug of tea over a 5D4 so you can report on it too? :-P

Kudos to you for taking the whole thing apart and reassembling.

No 5D4 alas Annie, but if I did, perhaps a tumbler of whiskey might be a more appropriate drinking vessel to drop on it :-P As you live in Scotland I think you know what I meant by 'rain splashes', like we also get down here in the south-west where I live... Those really wet splashes that soak you to the skin in a few minutes flat.

On a more serious note, my discoveries won't stop me going out with the 6D in the rain (or with other cameras I own) as I enjoy capturing the heavy winter storms down here, but I will take more care to ensure I dry the areas where water can accumulate unnoticed in a seam, at the base of the lens mount, or behind an eye cup.

Important note to everyone. If you ever get water or damp inside the camera and it starts to misbehave in any way, take the battery out IMMEDIATELY. It's generally not the water itself that causes the damage to electronics (it's not good for camera/lens mechanics though), it's leaving the electronics powered in the presence of water that causes severe problems. The OFF switch on a Canon camera does not remove power from the camera electronics totally, only removing the battery does that!

For anyone thinking of dismantling and repairing their own camera like I did, it's not something to be embarked upon lightly. If you have any doubts whatsoever, just don't do it. I used to service broadcast video gear, so I have years of experience with very intricate precision electronic equipment, and access to the right tools. It's not too difficult per see, but you must be very meticulous, keep copious notes as you go, and never rush or try to force anything that won't budge as it will end in tears and a large invoice for replacements.

I think you mean whisky :). Adding the 'e' means it doesn't originate in Scotland.
