I'm pretty sure the shutter rating is 100,000, but it's good to know they're capable of much more than that. I like mine for indoor event and low light stuff. If it had f8 AF capability, I wouldn't have bought the 5D MkIII. And I agree, it does balance nicer than the 5D MkIII.

ahh yes you are correct, 100k! : ) just updated the text

as of this writing the 6D is currently at 273,492 shutter cycles and still shooting (batter tests)

Well there's really no way to spot the shadow noise at the sizes TS posted.

I don't recover shadows typically. No HDR or photoshop manipulation, just optics.

I occasionally do auto-level (command U in lightroom) and it does, on occasion, increase shadow detail very slightly but I tend to reduce it back to default.

well, you're assuming he's doing heavy shadow recovery. If you havent noticed, a lot of his shots are during the best time of shooting, and light is fairly even at those times, so shadow recovery is not needed.

Shadow recovery might be more helpful with harsh shadows, but TS probably wants the best images, and has patience for it. Just a wild guess ;)

You made a great video review. The 6D is a great camera owning one myself. Its pretty close to my 1DX in image quality.

I want to thank you for putting this together; I have been postulating back and forth on my next body purchase and you have pushed me another step closer to making it the 6D.

Great write-up; beautiful photo's.

Thanks for the great review and insight on how to handle one of our most adamant 6D contrarians.

Great movie, great review. Music was annoying though so I didn't finish the movie.

EDIT: but I downloaded the pdf instead. :)

I've owned the 6D for a year now also, so I knew this already :P Great video. If only I had 1/10 of your skill. Only been shooting for 2 years, so I gotta get a bit more practice. I bet those LEE filters kick butt.

The Wifi is really handy if you want to quickly upload SOOC images to social media. Facebook destroys image quality anyway, so SOOC jpegs are fine. I agree that the EOS app is underwhelming. I think having the ability to transfer RAW or video files would vastly improve it. My main limitations are the glass I use, not the camera. Having a 2.8 70-200 or the 135 f/2 would allow me to shoot with much lower ISO. Thankfully, ISO 16000 shots of the stage are pretty decent for web use. The IQ in this camera blow away the 7D. The 6D shines at car shows or scifi/anime conventions, not so much at the local quidditch match. One year later, I'm very happy.

my absolute favorite thing in this thread is that someone brought up how Nikon can push shadows better than canon.

it's like, the best contribution imaginable.

oh, you took nice shots, well it could be better if you had a nikon, cause you can push those shadows! :rolleyes::rolleyes:

nice review!

I guess it doesn't really matter which brand you use. I tried to do some landscape with filters and failed miserably :p I totally was out at the wrong time of day.
