I shot a wedding on Sunday, used two rented 6D's for the indoor stuff (bride didn't want flash during the ceremony and the venue was DARK), but used my 5D's for outdoor portraits. This was taken just after they had their first look. I had less than 30 mins to knock out couples portraits and bridals and very limited on locations. Here's one I really liked. 5D + 135L

Hey, why 5d not 6d? I'm really on edge to sell my 5dc and get new 6d (or used 5d3)... so this get me curious. Regards.

I personally feel that 5Dc is not worth selling, this camera is stellar performer even today and can do the job pretty well, at least as backup.

I use 5D mk III along with 1ds mk II and 5Dc and for my personal projects i use 5Dc pretty exclusively. 6D is on otherhand great for video and liveview is great addition if you need only one primary camera.

Mostly to save card space and batteries for peace of mind. Plus I know I love the colors out of the 5D and didn't want to try to figure out any changes in post work of the 6D (faster post process for me). In the end, I had plenty of battery and memory to spare. I could have used the 6D's for all of it, but wanted to break up the images over 5 cards in case anything failed along the way. I was shooting solo, so everything had to work and I had backups for everything. 4 bodies and 4 lenses (although I was only using two of each at a time), 5 cards, two extra batteries per camera.

Here's the gear I used during different parts of the day.

Getting ready photos:
6D + 35 f2
6D + 85 f1.8

First look and portraits outdoor:
5D + 24-105L
5D + 135L

Ceremony:
6D + 24-105L
6D + 85 f1.8

Reception:
6D + 24-105L + flash

As far as the 6D vs 5D, I like the 6D's snappy feeling compared to the 5Dc. To me, it almost feels like a 7D and 5D mated and had a baby. Grip feels similar to the 7D, AF is faster than the 5D (but not the 7D). Shutter sounds the same as the 7D. Loved the Auto ISO feature where you could set a min shutter speed. That would have saved my bacon in situations before.

I could have used the 5D for the reception, but not sure if the AF would have been able to see in such low light. My settings were around 1/15, f4, 400 ISO + flash.

If I get another wedding soon, I will have to decide if I want to sell my beloved 5D's for 6D's or rent again. I'd say I will probably rent again as the 5D's and primes cover me for 95% of the situations I am in.

Shot a bowl of vegan chili last night for my wife's blog. 5D + 135L. YongNuo 565 EX II flash + YN622c triggers + umbrella. Super simple setup and I like the results.

Pictures turned out great. More importantly, how was the chili?

Thanks!! It was great! My wife has been working and tweaking this recipe over about 4 different versions to get the right mix of spices, veggies, etc.

Hey, simple is good, as are your results.


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:
