Now that is priceless.

'Common sense statement'......of course.....I should have known. The features assure better pictures. Yes....yes....of course. Man, your an advertiser's dream.

In truth, it is a non-sense statement.

Better focusing system > more pictures in focus > better pictures.
Anti flicker > less pictures with bad color casts > better pictures.

It's pretty much common sense unless you just want to make arguments justifying your choice in bodies.

"IQ" makes me think of the maximum potential with sensor and electronics doing a specific imaging task; not the success rate of nailing light cycling, exposure, or focus. Anyone who includes these things when talking about "camera IQ" is just muddying the waters, IMO. Any system can fall below its potential in creating an image, but it can never be better than its "IQ".

Disagree...Anything that allows the photographer to take better quality pictures (known as IQ!) is a plus. That includes all new and improved camera features which obviously contribute to IQ. Don't understand why this is so difficult to comprehend...-?

I see what you mean.

I seem to remember my 6D being marginally better than that.
Have you tried the Canon DPP noise reduction? it might help.

Help what?

I don't have trouble focusing on whatever I choose to and I don't have trouble with color cast.

If these things help you take better pictures then good on you. Whatever works for you.

So you think that a flippy screen and better AF system will improve IQ? For real?

Sometimes, getting new camera gear motivates you to get out and take more photographs... that in itself could make you a better photographer... if you learn as you go.

As I said before, I've very glad people are upgrading to the 6D 2.... I picked up a very lightly used 6D for a decent price. I'm content. ;)

I agree with this with one exception,

Any system can fall below its potential in creating an image, but it can never be better than its "IQ" without significant post processing.

There are techniques that can be used to improve the dynamic range of an image making a poor camera the equal to the best. There are techniques that can be employed such as median blending of an image stack which will render a near noiseless image, but all require significant post processing time and skills and do not represent the quality of the hardware. I want to know what the hardware is capable without trickery. That will tell me how much post processing effort I will have to allot after the image is taken.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Well, I thought DPP noise reduction might have been a clue.
Personally I didn't think the noise in your tiny image was that bad.

Really? Naw..just helps my sore back and elevates eye fatigue resulting in more keepers. Ultimately, isn't that the goal?

Obviously depends on how one defines Image Quality.

Well different people have different requirements in a body, and I find it hard to believe that you are obtaining a 100% hit rate on the BIF type shots in your gallery especially while using a 6D.
