Still finding my way around the 6D but here's a bit of a pommy whinge to follow :-)

Just had 3 days in the mountains/rain forest. The first day was ruined by two guided tours of Chinese people who's Australian Chinese speaking guides thought it essential to stereotype their clients by speaking as loudly as possible without actually shouting. God knows what they managed to show their clients as I saw nothing despite putting plenty of distance between us and moving off the track into the undergrowth. Anyways, now I've got got that off my chest!vmad

I decided to opt for the 6D due to it's amazing low light focusing ability (I wasn't disappointed) and abandoned the reach of the 7Dmkll and convertor because invariably, I am on top of a bird anyway before I know it's there in the rain forest as most of them I've encountered rely on their camo and you only see them if they move...............2nd disaster was that no way could I get the 6D to high sync with my 580EXll despite trying it in all "user" modes manual, AV, Sp. There's not much on google other than to say that you simply have to put the flash in high sync mode and the camera settings are up to you but all I got at high shutter speeds was a blank screen despite the flash firing. I must be missing something? Anyways, the cameras fastest shutter speed of 180 when in AV resulted in ghosting so the flash was dumped.
If you've got this far :lol: then the previous aside, I'm over the moon that I got four firsts and found another Alberts Lyrebird pair and that despite my poor PP skills, high iso and slow shutter, the fact that these birds are new to me means I'm calling 'em keepers and you'll have to put up with them. First up is Albert with more to follow once I get round to PP. They might look bright but I can asure you, it's bloody dark in there!

Also posted on the 100-400 mkll thread if you want to see the exif

Seen any carpet snakes in there, or is it still a bit cool for them? Far more dangerous than bears, wolves etc. :) Actually I'm usually more concerned about an ambush from a Giant Stinging Tree...

I cannot get my 6D to HSS, either. 70D works great just by setting flash to HSS.

Had been having trouble with HSS, also. Just found solution. MENU, 2nd from left (2dots), external speed lite control, flash function settings and turn on HSS. Works great with my Sunpak flash! Hope this helps.

You know the pictures on this thread just keep getting better. I have a 6D and I've had it for a while now and I posted lots of pictures on this thread.

I also shoot with a crop frame for wildlife but I also now have a 5D Mark 4. As much as I like my new 5D I don't think I will sell my 6D because I like it too much. It's really a great camera for its price point and as somebody said in the previous post it can do a lot if you work with it and figure out its limits.

Thanks, but I've tried that. According to one bit of research that I found via google, when you do that, HSS icon similar to that shown on the flash, should show up in your viewfinder but all I get is the normal flash icon -?

Quite happy that I managed to get focus past the branch

Lamington National Park Qld, Australia
Of the many small birds calling in this forest, this is one of the most common and is often seen along the tracks. It is sometimes confused with the also common white-browed scrubwren, which has lighter markings around the yellow eye and throat and a white line under the eye. The call of the yellow-throated scrubwren varies from a high pitched melodious whistle to harsh, scalding contact and alarm calls. They are also accomplished mimics of other birds. Their easily identified hanging domed nests, when no longer in use, are often taken over by large-billed scrubwrens.
