Yes, with the 6D you can focus from the phone via wifi, change ISO, aperture, shutter, and take a photo! Full remote control ability at your service.

Anyone who wants to be able to control their camera wirelessly, use a much larger and better screen for instantly viewing images and controlling the camera etc...

People with a smartphone/tablet who want to take selfportraits or group portraits with them in it. Or people who shoot at unconvenient angles (e.g. macro shooters)...

Well Canon for being able to charge for it and no doubt using the 6D as a test bed for development of future modules.

I have a friend who is dying to get his hands on a 6D because the Wifi feature will allow him to transfer his work to a laptop wirelessly. He also shoots wildlife so I expect remotely controlling his camera would be a benefit.

Think I'll pass for now. The 5D3 is still the fairest prince on the basis that the 1Dx is king.

Exactly. To illustrate one example, if you do this (see image below) a lot, which I do - that's me doing it right there - you won't have to anymore. As long as you have a little tripod, of course, which I did that day but not in that shot.

i got the 5D3!

i must say, i'm liking the new options: setting a minimum and maximum auto ISO, setting minimum shutter speed, etc.

if canon had put these options on firmware for the 5D2, i might not have upgraded :D

-0-

after we got the camera last night, the wife said, if you sell your 1Ds2 and 600D ... you can get a 6D.
my eyes went wide and she said, wasn't that what you were thinking? (it wasn't) but i said yes anyway :D

i think she was not as happy with the 5D3 because i showed her the wifi-6D video :D

I had/have a 5D3 in my shopping cart on Amazon as we speak ($2999). I want to buy it so bad, but I would sell my 7D and 5D2 to fund it. Leaving me with a XSi as my only backup body :confused:. Just wondering if its worth it or not........

i used to have a 7D, and i still have a 5D2.

if you normally bring two bodies (like me), that would be a hard decision.
but if you only bring one body most of the time, i would say it's worth it.

the shutter of the 5D3 sounds closer to the 7D too :)

save a bit, sell the 7D then keep both 5D2 and 5D3 :D

This is a good comparison is you're looking for some more opinions:

I went to Ken's website once and it was the biggest piece of $##@$ I've ever seen. He's just trying to make money off of people more than giving out good advice.

Lol I am definitely selling the 7D in the next month or so. I usually only take one body with me (unless I shoot a wedding of course).

Ahhhhhh ill probably wind up saving for a few months and getting the 5D3, but its so enticing right now.

I have to ask, did you actually have higher expectations going into it than what you got out of it? It's KR for Pete's sake.

I'm not sure how much you read, but he states very clearly that the website is mostly a joke.
