Until I just watched a show report, I hadn't figured that Canon had designed the 6D around wireless shooting control from smart phones and tablets. Conceivably, one could shoot a RAW + JPEG and remotely record each shot every 3 seconds. Nice! Have no idea on range though.

Whilst I wouldn't avoid a camera body that had those features (in fact I'd be quite happy to have them - not that I'd use it much) I just wish they'd concentrate on the important stuff... you know, like good controls (the 7D joystick that's missing), decent AF, sensor quality, and possibly a built-in flash to trigger an external unit (it's a budget camera - therefore you may not want to spend cash on lots of external flashes).

Instead, they seem to be concentrating on the "look at me" features for the hipster Apple crowd. No offence to the hipster Apple crowd...


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

I think i'd even play around with the wifi feature :D (i would not pay extra to get it on 3d II or so) but it being build it it opens some cool possibilities. Leave it hooked up on a tripod at home or somewhere, VPN to network and take shots from anywhere!

any new developments on the iso capabilities?
as good as the mkiii? There are some sample images now so just wondering if I should buy a mkii instead for astrophotography. Opinions?

interesting review

Indeed, I wonder how the outer AF points did/do though. This actually gets me somewhat interested in the body.
