Need new body help - I'm stuck on either a 70D or the 6D, which would you choose (knowing I shoot aircraft mainly).

Quite like the idea on the 6D FF, I know a guy who has one for airshows and loves it, but I'm swaying towards the 70D for the tilt screen (for my new pole) and the 1.3crop for airshows. Should go well with a 50-500?

Decisions. :confused:

Save some bucks and buy my 7D :D

do you think the screen will help when it's at the top of a pole? you might need another zoom lens to see it?

You can get very good remote screens to relay the image - also I wonder if the 6D wifi can be used as a remote trigger i.e using your phone/tablet as a viewer?

Can anyone recommend an SD card for the 5D3?

I have 3 good CF's but an SD would be good as my "photography only" laptop has an SD reader built in.

Unsure until I try, plus I don't have a smart phone/iPhone etc :oops:

I only use Sandisk cards in my cameras - I've found them to be 100% reliable - make sure you buy a fast one though!

I see, maybe someone can lend you a swivel screen camera to trial?! seems like a niche reason to choose a camera (thought the 70D does look very competent on paper!)

Could you not add some space around in PP - the bg colour would be fairly easy to clone into the extra space...then you could tilt it back to upright.

Hi Mike, thanks for that suggestion I will try it, although not entirely sure how to but I'll give it a go!

the 'other' one has done well on Flickr today, guess everyone loves a cute puppy!
here's a couple more.

Adrian - I like the horsey sunset shots a lot but really don't like the headcollar and lead rein - is there any way these horses can be shot without. The horses I did on the beach that time - we managed to remove headcollars and put a line around their necks very low down almost around their shoulders. Most horses won't run away from their owners.

Plus one for Sandisk I've got 4, 8 and 32 gig cards which I use and never had any problems apert for with the 32 gig which I use for motorsport etc and tend to fill it up because I can and it take a lot of iamges to fill it it :D.

Now that as stated before is one cute pup :D Looks like she has a nice disposition as well? Just wish on #1 you had not chopped off the rear paw(s)

The "mask" around the eyes would almost make me want to call Zorro.............or maybe the Scarlet Pimpernel :lol:


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p

I'd like a newer camera with better ISO performance and of course more MP, the screen I want for a number of reasons, the pole being one but also rigging cars too, though I haven't got everything I need as of yet. :)

Yep the EOS remote app for smartphones and tablets which works with the WiFi on both 6D and 70D give full live view remote control ISO, fstop shutter speed oh and trigger


Sometimes I take good photos other times !!!!

She's lovely, her name is Elsa. I wish I hadn't chopped off the paw as well but it was very tricky ;) using the 85mm lens in the studio is great but the downside is that I actually have to move around, and when you're already laying down, it's extremely tempting for a puppy to come and jump on your head - which she did several times :lol: so not moving is key.

:lol: yes, I knew from your first posted images that she was called Elsa...........but the mask just caught my eye this time.............so maybe Scarlet ~ no, Elsa is a lovely name.

As for your backstory about her behaviour well that conjures up such a delightful 'picture' of the studio session :D

@Crunchie, if you can't get friends to help is there a course you can go on, I know for weddings there are one day courses specifically to increase your portfolio.

Few horse shots from earlier in the week
