Congrats on the upgrade!
I shoot in Manual mode 90+% of the time and because the 6d is so great at higher ISO's I generally use Auto ISO most of the time.

^ Whats' hard about exposure compensation with the 6D? Q menu and turn the wheel... I don't know anything about the T2i or T4i, but the 6D implementation isn't much different from my 7D.

I think the T4i had a dedicated button. And sometimes I may be using the menu for something else. It really isn't too much different, it's just messing with my flow a bit so far.

I'm not sure if you know, but if shooting in one of the priority modes the back dial adjusts exposure compensation.

LOL, just grabbed my camera to try that out. I'm an idiot. This will help out a lot, thanks!

Hey Guys. First post in the 6D thread. I upgraded to the 6D from the T4i and I am very pleased with the 6D so far.

With my T2i and T4i I tended to shoot in aperture priority, with manual iso. When I wanted to correct or play with exposure I got in a habit of using exposure compensation. With the configuration on the 6D it is less convenient to use exposure compensation. I'm thinking of just moving to full manual now while I'm first learning the camera. With the T4i I had become quick at getting the settings I wanted, but I have been slowed after the switch.

Anyway, just wondering how you guys shoot with the 6D, and any thoughts about the layout of the camera and what you like/dislike.

Not sure why you think that, it's extremely easy with the 6D, don't even need to push a button...

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.
