I use live view and the articulating screen on the T6s or M3 often for product photography, namely 3D printed objects, and for casual portraiture. I also use them for videos of items being 3D printed or for blog-style video, making the articulating screen much needed. I love my 7D2 which is primarily my wildlife rig for the FPS and AF speed, but miss the touchscreen when I try to use it for product-type shooting. I'm also invested in crop glass like my Sigma 50-100mm, so I really am not looking at FF. If it's not worth the upgrade maybe I'll just hang onto the T6s, ditch the M3 and EF-M lenses, and invest in glass.

Thanks,
Joe

I think for your situation you would greatly benefit from the DPAF live view autofocus. Even if you didn't go 80D and went 77D(to stay with the smaller form factor) to replace your t6s, the DPAF and the new 45pt AF would be an upgrade.


I'm planning on getting the 77D, though the tiny viewfinder may drive me nuts, when Canon puts it on their refurb page and posts it's first sale. My hope is around $650 in a year or so. It will be my travel camera. I've played with it at Best buy a couple of times and I just prefer it to the M5

Still learning the ins and outs of the 80D. Yesterday, I blew a ton of action eagle shots because I wasn't paying attention to shutter speed. Today, I came across this bad boy in Kincaid Park.

for your usage, the 80D would be better for product-type shooting.
Another would be to wait for 6D2 (coming soon July2017) and see if the articulating screen has touch screen....

Macro is quite a challenge for me, but I did wonder what these two bees were up to!

I've moved into the world of manual shooting and I blow a lot of shots trying to get aperture and shutter speed set quickly on action shots. I feel your pain. I just recently sold my 40D and picked up the 80D. So far I really like it!

As a fairly new wildlife shooter, when I take my 7D2 out for shooting BIF and other animals I take full advantage of the custom shooting modes, setting all with high enough shutter speed to stop action, then set C1 to full sunshine exposure, C2 to partly cloudy conditions, and C3 to full shade. That way as the lighting changes I can switch exposure quickly without dropping my shutter speed too low, and I can always perfect the exposure in post.

That's something else I'm attempting to learn to do, post process my pictures. I only have GIMP so I'm trying to learn how to adjust things using GIMP. All of my pictures that I post are unmodified except maybe cropping them.

I use GIMP for graphic editing but for post processing RAW files you really can't beat Adobe Lightroom. $10 a month was a tough pill to swallow for me at first, but now that I'm using it I'm glad I didn't keep struggling with RawTherapee, Zoner Photo Studio and other free or lower-cost options that don't do the job nearly as well. After spending thousands on camera gear it doesn't pay to pinch pennies on post processing. I just remind myself that the results are far more dramatic than a new lens or body.

$10 a month... Three fewer cups of coffee unless it's those fancy Starbucks kind then it's only two less cups a month.

None issue.

Get Lightroom CC.

I'll have to check out Adobe Lightroom and see how I like it and what I can do with it. Thanks for the advice.

I, too, didn't fancy paying a monthly fee, but I eventually paid the yearly price for the Lightroom, Adobe Bridge and Photoshop CC package, and forgot about the cash (until next year!). Because of our lousy UK exchange rate (Brexit, etc), the price has since gone up, but I don't regret it at all. Quite the opposite - it is money well spent. Here is an example of what Lightroom can do. Here are the original RAW and post-Lightroom versions of the bee photo I posted above. Lightroom is not that easy to learn, though. There are still aspects that I have a problem with. I'd recommend Scott Kelby's Lightroom book.

I have got to learn how to do that. I'll look for Scott Kelby's Lightroom book. I'm going to download the trials tonight and check them out and then probably will buy a year of the photos package which includes Lightroom and Photoshop CC.

Europe seems to have MUCH cooler trains than we do in the US at least here in Houston.

Another vote for LR cc. I cant see using anything else to process RAW. Once you get comfortable using it, can't be beat!
