This is my first foray into digital photography. I started years ago with an AE1 and then in the mid 90s bought a elan IIe. Both excellent cameras, but try to find a place to process the film...assuming you can find film worth crap to shoot.
Ok, so the 6D arrived about three hours ago. My immediate reaction:
Feels great in the hand, far more solid than the Elan IIe.
Uses my canon L lenses, but I knew that
The first few photos I've taken look pretty good given I had it on fully auto everything.
No film. Instant gratification
Holy crap is this thing complicated. They have to give you a DVD with the manual because apparently they'd have to kill an entire forest to print everything.
Apparently unlike the elan, this doesn't use your eyeball to select the desired AF sensor. Serious disappointment, I LOVED that feature
I was surprised the camera came without a card....but perhaps expecting a card is like expecting a film camera to come with film...
I'm off to the farmer's market to shoot some stuff, but it is clear that I have a LOT to learn.
