I'm sure this has been said a million times before but I'm glad they are providing a cheaper entry-level camera. Looking forward to all the new technology but the 5d3 is just too expensive (at least because this is just a hobby)

Na, this isn't going to get good until DxO comes out with their review showing that the 6D has better DR and noise profile than the MkIII. :) That's when you break out the popcorn. :):)

That is exactly what I posted here and over at naturescapes when the 6D was announced. LOL as I need some new entertainment in my life.

Now some one need to start another thread:
"So who bought a 6D?" Guess it well past the time.

That 100K ISO Jocau's picture is very impressive. I am sold.

That high ISO pic looks pretty impressive, but I think more information is needed as to whether this was RAW output or simply a better NR algorithm. Actually I expect the 6D to have excellent high ISO performance, but what will make or break this camera is ... AUTOFOCUS !!! I have yet to see an in depth review of the AF.

Seriously doubt this is a big issue. It has one cross type so people in the market for one know the limitation. Not the end of the world... and -4ev focusing will make up for it's deficiencies

Looking at the pic I'm suspecting that no NR was applied. Look at the detail, it's still there.

Biggest thing for me the 5D2 brought over the 5DC was liveview and the extra pixels. Liveview for landscape photography is fantastic.

I'm afraid that's the one thing I'll miss having in a 5D. I went a long time without using Live View on my XS. When I started, I discovered that it is really, really nice. Especially compared to the tiny viewfinder of the XS.

First of all. The pic isn't mine. I found it on the canonrumors forum and it's just a comparison crop of the shots on the dpreview website.

Also one of the dpreview staff members told this about the 6D pictures:

These are out-of-camera JPEGs at default settings, with no additional processing. This means Long exposure NR is OFF, and High ISO Speed NR is set to 'Standard'. The EOS 6D's JPEG output, unsurprisingly, looks very much like the 5D Mark III's, with the same noise reduction effects on low-contrast detail such as foliage, even at low ISOs.

Which is logical since there are no RAW convertors out yet for the 6D.

Does the 6D have a different RAW format compared to existing models, or am I misunderstanding your comment?


-- I have emerged from a time capsule, 35mm film camera in hand, and accept it is high time to go digital

Each raw file is unique to the camera itself. The photo processing developers need to write the converter specific to the new camera.
