i honestly thought it was going to be a 9D. They still had odd numbers left before needing to break into the even numbers.

LOL! I know what you mean. Just add it to the list...:rolleyes: Camera isn't even out yet and people are wondering "should I get a 5d2 or a 6d" or "Opinion: is the 6d the right body for me" and "The 6d AF sucks!" :lol:

You gotta admit, new camera/lens news livens the boards up...even if it is a bit redundant... ;)

I believe the 6D is targeted at Rebel or 60D users. It's the only logical explantion for using SD cards.

The reason the 6D uses sd cards is simply because it doesn't need the extra speed of the CF cards (slower frame rate) and they're cheaper, so why not...

the replacement for the 5Dmk2 is the 5Dmk3, hence why it it's called a mk3.

the 6D doesn't replace the 7D either, if it did then it would be called 7Dmk2.

the 6D is a new camera not replacing anything, which includes the 5Dmk2. it's semi pro and aimed at a type of photographer. You can tell it's semi pro because the model dial hasn't got the auto zone. aka it doesn't have a landscape option. The type of memory doesn't effect the type of camera or who uses it. if it does then the 5dmk3 wouldn't have a SD slot.

the 6D at this stage is specs on a piece of paper. nothing more. you can't judge a camera on that.

and if your a good photographer then it doesn't matter if the camera is budget/semi pro or pro, any camera will do.

As someone who's seriously looking to buying the 6D (at least once serious reviews are in and the price started going down a bit), I'm quite happy that it uses SD, not because it saves me the money to upgrade my memory cards, but because both my MacBook Pro and the iMac I just bought have the native capability to read SD cards. No need to use cumbersome external CF readers, especially when I'm using my laptop away from home.

Maybe they should have called it the 8D. ;)


Can't do that. That's the model designation for my french horn. And it is definitely pro!!

So wait, the 6D isn't also going to be a french horn? I'm going to start another thread to complain about it111! :D

As a long time T1i user I recognize that the 6D is clearly intended to draw me into the FF world. The smaller body size is a huge reason I prefer to stick to crops. But I'm still not convinced I'd be getting much more here than what I already have, certainly not $2k worth. So I wait for the next announcement and carry on taking pictures I enjoy with my outdated tech.

Well there is a 6D. It's an older model - pretty outdated. Then there is a 9D, 10D, & 11D. So Canon needs to find a new naming convention or make the horn world really mad.

Why's that? Bent pins are a real problem with CF cards, and I'm sure Canon Repair has the data to back it up.

UHS-1 can write up to 45MB/S, which is faster than many CF cards.

There are SDXC cards that are 95mb/s...

The world is going SD. It's just a matter of time before all are assimilated. CFs time has come and gone. There are a few dinosaurs still around but they will soon die off.

C100 uses SD
C300 uses CF
C500 uses CF
1D C uses CF

I don't think CF cards are going to die all that soon...

Yeah, but it only writes at a max of 90Mb/s:p:lol: Which is the same as their comparable (model name, not price) CF card. The question is, how many SD cards would I lose? I'm constantly finding SD cards in random places around the house. They're so tiny they just disappear, and don't get me started on microSD:mad: . Meanwhile I have never lost a CF card, and I've never bent a pin.:D I'll likely be a CF card holdout for a while longer. :o:D

yeah lets not get into the microSD cards...I always find the adapters to SD but never the microSD...

If someone already has CF cards I would say stick with them but maybe every now and then when you see a good deal on an SDXC card like when I purchased my 64Gb for $50 a while ago it wouldnt hurt to pick one up...just in case..

- As most have already figured out, the 6D is not intended to be a replacement for the 5DII. While the 5DII can be looked at as a "pro" level camera, that is not the intention of the 6D. It is a "pro-sumer" camera intended to be in line with the 7D. That doesn't mean "equal to". Where the 7D's target is sports, the 6D's target is portraits and landscapes. Build-quality, size, etc. wise, though, they are supposed to be very similar. In other words, if you are mainly into sports, go for the 7D, if you are mainly into portraits and studio go for the 6D, but if you want something that will excel at both, you're going to have to fork out the cash for the 5DIII, or have the benefits of both a crop and a full frame by buying a 6D and a 7D.

In what way does a 7D not excel in the studio when paired with the right glass?

In what way (other than, perhaps, group portraits which require isolation and relatively wide angles or large distances all at the same time) does the 7D not excel at portraits?

???

While the full frame sensor will get you marginally better IQ, the 7D has the advantage of not requiring recomposition prior to taking the shot, which means you can keep it in servo mode and nail the focus to whatever part of your subject you want. That seems like a definite advantage for portrait shooting to me, at least when compared with the 6D (the 5D3 doesn't have this problem -- it definitely excels at portraits).

That said, the 6D will perform really nicely for those things, and should be a better tool than the 7D for group portraits.

You need to explain that because I don't understand what you are suggesting. Shooting studio in AI Servo? Why? Don't bother to compose the picture? Whats that all about
